Publisher's Summary

A friends-to-lovers novella that came from Out of the Shadows because Nate and Dylan needed a story....

Nate and Dylan have been pals for a long time. So what if their friends think they’ve got a little bromance going? Doesn’t mean there’s anything more to it than that, right? And even if there is, Nate and Dylan are totally oblivious....

Until the night they share a drunken kiss, and everything changes.

Not for me

Nate and Dylan has been joined at the hip and best friends forever. Being stood up by their friends they decides to have a fun evening together anyways. Only things go further than either of them planned and that night has the potential to ruin their friendship forever or change into something else, something more.

Bromantically Yours is a story we've all read before. I can't say that it really brings anything new to the game. Done well this could still have been a cutesy story to spend an afternoon with. But it wasn't. It was a bit too shallow and mindless (or plot-less) and I never connected to anyone in this book. I do appreciate effortless and drama free reads at times, but at the same time I need somethingto keep me interested. And on another note, this book is a spinoff from another book WeIl's written, but never felt like I was missing out on anything, it works well as a standalone.

Daniel Henning didn't do anything for this book. On the contrary actually. He was too much and not enough at the same time. Some parts were over dramatized and to the point where it all just sounded a bit ridiculous, other times there were no feeling near his narration. He never made you connect with the story and I found myself feeling mostly annoyed through out the story. On the plus side, Henning had a very pleasant voice to listen to and I do believe he has potential for narrating books, but I think I'll wait for him to get some more practice before picking up more of his books.

I picked this book up on a gamble, knowing it could be a cute short story or a bad one. Sadly it ended up in the latter part. There were some cute and fun moments, but not enough of them for me to recommend this to anyone.

A copy of this book was generously provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review for Love Bytes.

Short, but sweet.

Daniel Henning is a new-to-me narrator and overall he did a nice job with the pacing, timing, and adding distinctive character voices, but I personally found it a bit perplexing that his character voices for Nate and Dylan became more effeminate as the audiobook progressed. However, overall it was a cute, short listen.

Bromantically Yours is short, but sweet, light, no-angst, friends to lovers romance told in a dual POV and can absolutely be read as a standalone even though the characters first appear in Wells’s Out of the Shadows. However, if you skip Out of the Shadows you will miss some of the initial setup and background into how Nate and Dylan’s friendship evolved with one another and how it’s viewed by others prior to their epiphany here.

Liked the story, narration, not so much.

Best friends become lovers in this short, sweet story. It was fun listening as they each navigated the change in their relationship, their doubts about the changes that were happening, and ultimately the evolution to lovers. Wells is such a great storyteller, there was a lot of content for such a short book.

Narration, oiy and vey. I don't understand why the narrator had to give every character in the book a flamboyant, effeminate tone. The majority of the characters were male, it would have been nice if there was some sexy growl, deep baritone, even angst would have worked. Were it not for Wells stellar writing, I would have dumped this one fifteen minutes in.

Overall I loved the story but, sorry folks, didn't care for the narration.

Bromantically Yours

4.5 stars for the book
4 stars for the narration
This book is a shorter novella that’s a spin-off from the book “Out of the Shadows” by the K.C. Wells. With that being said, I have not read or listened to that book and I made it through this one just fine without being lost or confused with all of the characters. This book can certainly be read and/or listened to as a standalone.

What could go wrong when two drunk guys who have been friends since they were kids make the decision to “watch some porn together?”

Dylan and Nate have been friends since they were 8 years old, like 15+ years. I love that they are both totally and completely clueless of their feelings for each other at the start of this book, they are really just friends, but so obviously (to everyone else) more than “just friends”. I really enjoy the friends to lovers trope in books, especially when it’s the first time really experiencing new feelings for someone of the same gender you wouldn’t normally like in that way. It was refreshing that they kind of fumbled their way through their feelings and different aspects of their relationship taking the time to make sense of it all. They didn’t just jump into bed together and that gave this book more of a real-life feeling to it. Omg, and when they do get together it is totally awkward and fumbling, and funny, cause they have no clue what they are doing, that’s the way sex with someone you know and have a connection with should be, it should be fun as well as steamy. The narration for this part was amusing to listen to as well. And all the embarrassing advice they get from their well-meaning friends throughout the book is pretty funny as well. Nate and Dylan end up being the most adorable couple together.

Audio – This is my first time getting a chance to hear a book by the narrator Daniel Henning and I was delightfully surprised by how much I liked his rendition of this book. He gave us two different voices for each of the main characters that were distinctive enough to keep track of who was talking during the book. I’m always a little worried when I hear new narrators on books from authors I love but I really think he did well with this one and wouldn’t mind getting more of his audiobook narrations to add to my library. Cute book and good narration of the audiobook.
