ARC Review: The Spencer Cohen Series (Book 1) by N.R. Walker

Spencer Cohen is the guy who gets answers to relationship questions. Playing the role of the new lover, his job is to make his client’s ex realise one of two things: he doesn’t want to break up or he really does. Either way, his client gets answers.

The ex would either apologize and beg, or turn and walk. But in the end, Spencer’s client won. If he wanted his ex back and got him, it was great. If the guy walked away, then as hard it was for the client, he knew it was over. Regardless of the outcome, Spencer’s work was done.

Andrew Landon’s ex left him without so much as an explanation. But his sister can’t stand to see him miserable, so, much to Andrew’s dismay, they hire Spencer to be Andrew’s new boyfriend to get the ex back.

For Spencer, it is never personal. Merely a business transaction. No emotions, no strings, no complications.

Yeah right.

Even a blind man could see how this would end.

Dani's rating:


Spencer is an Aussie in L.A. (not to be confused with an Englishman in New York). He lives above a tattoo shop, totes makeup gear for his best friend who drives a Cindy Crawford (a cute 80s model), and helps men get their lovers back.

Spencer is the hip version of a Love Detective, complete with a beard and tat sleeves.He enjoys vinyl records and Moroccan breakfasts but doesn't do feelings or complications.

Then he meets Andrew, an artist and piano player, recently & unceremoniously dumped by his boyfriend. Andrew wants Eli back, and it's Spencer's job to help him, but the more time Spencer spends with Andrew, the more he wants Andrew for himself.

There is no sex in this book, but there is ANTICIPATION.

When the book ends, Spencer and Andrew have known each other but a week. There is the PROMISE of a HEA (and you just know N.R. Walker will deliver!), but the future is wide open.

I loved the dance here, the way the men interact, the quiet moments they spend watching animated films and having takeout (because Andrew doesn't cook).

The tenderness, the lingering glances, the scene in the closet when they both take off their shirts ... it's all good.

LOVELY story; can't wait for book 2!
