Ache is the exact perfect title for this book because that is what your heart will do for these two heroes. Here are the deets.
Ache is Marley Valentine’s newest M/M romance. The trope is unrequited love, in love with straight best friend, I’d even say possibly gay for you.
Jordan is the bestie in love with his seemingly straight friend Gael. Gael is engaged… to woman, who from what you can tell early is a good person.
I wanted to strangle these two in the beginning. I wanted to scream, OH MY GOD, GET IT TOGETHER! It’s frustrating in a way that you know that author wanted you to be frustrated. It’s that frustrating I love to hate because it makes the angst so good. It’s purposeful frustration.
Non spoiler-spoiler overall:
My goodness, I can’t tell you what I want to because it’s such a spoiler! Let me say there is a big something that happens that makes everything go backward. Not a horrible time warp flashback backward; you know me better than that by now, backward like a significant setback. There’s that angsty frustration again, but it’s so good. It’s like getting a tattoo. You know it’s going to hurt, but man, it hurts so good, and then when you are finished, there is a huge adrenaline rush.
I feel like this review probably made zero sense. Here’s the easy part. This book is fantastic, but you’re going to get mad, you’re going to want to throw some things, you will probably yell at your Kindle and have random people on vacation starring at you. Wait, maybe that was just me? Ache is schmexy, steamy, hot, angry, love, love, love.
