ARC Review: A Casual Thing, by Annabelle Jacobs

From the blurb:
Patrick Mason travels to Bristol to spend the summer with his brother, Ben. He’s cat sitting for the first two weeks while Ben goes on holiday. But Ben neglected to tell him he wouldn’t be doing it alone. Will Adams—Ben’s mate and Patrick’s long-time crush—is staying in Ben’s guest room while he waits to move into his new house after a breakup. Against his better judgment, Patrick convinces Will that a little no-strings fun is just what they need. Patrick doesn’t want to get involved with a guy on the rebound, and Will isn’t interested in starting something serious with a student. But Patrick’s never been good at separating sex from feelings, and this time is no exception. As their weeks together draw to a close, they need to decide if they have something worth pursuing or if it’s really just a casual thing.

AnnaLund's rating:

There are a few things I really admire in an author, and at the top of my list is the ability to write different kinds of stories, in different voices.

I had become used to the quirky and darkish tone of Ms Jacobs paranormal series The Altered. Then I read her short story Toy With Me, which was hilarious, and light, and happy, and sexy.

But this book? This book takes British Boys by their proverbial hands and runs with them, hard and fast.

I giggled, and I snorted, and then I giggled some more, just because.

It is Unrequited Love at its primal stage. (Or is it?)

It is sexy, and fun, and by golly they finally make it in the end.

I do love a HFN.


I was given a free copy of this book from the author. A positive review wasn’t promised in return.
