ARC was kindly provided from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
Good Boy by my new favorite duo was a highly anticipated novel and not only did it deliver but it went above and beyond. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the characters, Blake is the loud-knows-no-personal-space-has-no-filter teammate and neighbor of Jamie and Wes.
Blake has a unique personality, he is like a puppy on a sugar high, always over the top, always loud and unstoppable. And that’s why we love him.
Jess Canning met Blake when she went to visit her brother and she’s less than thrilled with him. Didn’t stop her from going there. And now she wants nothing to do with him.
I have to be honest, a huge part of me wanted to read this because of Jamie and Wes, I mean, it’s their wedding! But Blake stole the spotlight from the guys and I loved him more than I did when I read Us. Jess? She had her moments but she definitely got better and more bearable by the second half, she was just all over the place and too insecure and too whiny at times. So you made some bad decisions and you screwed up a few times, stop crying about it and move on. Blake definitely helped her loosen up and become less about what other people would think and more about herself as a person, I liked that.
Overall, it’s Blake, in all his glory. And precious moments of Jamie and Wes, lots of wedding shenanigans and a few ridiculous balloon moments plus there’s a dog. And Blake, did I mention Blake? Blake.
