Pretty in Pink (Housemates #6) by Jay Northcote. 4*
BLURB:Ryan isn’t looking for a relationship with a guy—and Johnny isn’t looking for a relationship at all.
Ryan’s always been attracted to tall, leggy blondes—normally of the female variety. When Johnny catches his eye at a party, Ryan’s interest is piqued even though he’s never been with a guy before. The attraction is mutual, and the amazing night that follows opens Ryan’s eyes to his bisexuality.
Experience has taught Johnny that love hurts. Staying single is safer, and there’s no need for complicated relationships when hooking up is easy. When he moves in next door to Ryan, they’re both interested in picking up where they left off, and it seems like an ideal arrangement: convenient, mutually satisfying, and with no strings attached.
Despite their best intentions to keep things casual, they develop an emotional connection alongside the physical one. Both begin to want more from the relationship but are afraid to admit it. If they’re going to work things out, they need to start being honest—first with themselves, and then with each other.
My Review: I received an ARC from Signal Boost Promotions in exchange for an honest review. First thing I have to say is, although this book is part of the Housemates series, it has new main characters, a satisfying happy ending, and can be read as a standalone, but if, like me, you liked all the old characters don't despair because they turn up here and there too.
As for Ryan and Johnny and their relationship in this story I couldn't fault it. They were oh so typical guys with their 'lets make assumptions about the other guy and what he's feeling/thinking' rather than talk openly and honestly with him. And that's the only spoiler you're getting from me so go buy it when it comes out on Wednesday. You won't regret it especially if you've read even one of the previous Housemate books and enjoyed it. Also if you want a romance set in UK with all the britishness that comes with it, you can't go wrong with Jay Northcote as the name to look for.
