Sweet romance

Loved this book as soon as I read it and was thrilled when the audio version came out! Dan Caley is perfect for the narration and brings Connor and Patrick to life. Highly recommend this and all other Charlie Novak books. Loads of charming men finding their partners.

Sweet with light heat

I have been a fan of Charlie Novak’s books for awhile but had missed Strawberry Kisses for some reason though I had gotten into the Roll for Love series and had read other books that had followed this one. I’m glad I came back to this one. I loved Patrick and Connor and for all that you would think would be between a pastry chef and a pole dancer, this story was so very sweet. I loved the romance and comfort between the characters and the narration was well paced and did well with the different characters. Even with a male performance of female voices. In this authors’ universe, a reader will find the characters dabbling in and out of stories but since this is early on, you don’t really have a multitude of characters yet to keep track of, which was nice. This is definitely recommended as a light, sweet, getaway.

Sweet Read!!

I loved this book!! Patrick and Connor are so sweet together! I love how their differences mesh well together and make them more understanding of each other as well!

I don't usually like the fake relationship setup but their storyline had me over that hang up really fast!

The audio was good! The narrator did a good job of bringing the characters to life!

Low Angst and SO sweet!

Fake Boyfriend ✅
Friends to Lovers ✅
Steam Level: 🔥🔥

This book was ridiculously sweet. Connor is a sassy pole dancer and Patrick is a quiet baker and they have been friends for awhile. I LOVE the fake boyfriend trope and it's better when it's between besties!
I love that Connor is a pole dancer and embraces who he is and Patrick fully supports him. I appreciated that Connor didn't make Patrick feel bad about his inexperience nor did he fetishize it.
This book is super low angst and the MCs communicate in a realistic manner, not the best, but not dramatic. I smiled throughout the whole book! My only tiny complaint is that it's not as steamy as books I typically like, but the scenes that do happen are 🔥, and that's personal preference anyways.
Definitely looking forward to listening to Aaron and Josh's book when it becomes available on audio!
The narrator was new to me and it is the first narrator I've ever had to slow my speed down from 2x to 1.75x! I didn't dislike him and wouldn't avoid books he narrates in the future.
*I received a code for audible review but that did not influence my review in anyway and these opinions are my own.
