ARC Review: Suit by B.B. Easton

Title: Suit
Author: B.B. Easton
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Type: Standalone Book 4 of 4 from 44 Chapters Series
POV: First Person – Female
Expected Publication: October 18, 2018

 

Because BB Easton had so much fun writing her bestselling, award-winning memoir, 44 CHAPTERS ABOUT 4 MEN, she decided to give each of her four men his own steamy standalone. SUIT is Ken’s book—the hilarious, heartwarming tale of how BB finally got over her bad boy phase and found happily ever after with…gasp…a guy in a tie. 

“Since when are you into guys in ties? You only like guys who look like they rob guys in ties. At gunpoint.”

It was true. By 2003, my type had been well-established. There might as well have been a giant sign on my heart that said, Good Guys Need Not Apply.

Which is exactly why I had to friend-zone Ken Easton. The man was a former football star, smelled like fresh laundry instead of stale cigarettes, and had more ties in his closet than tattoos on his knuckles. Pssh. BOR-ING.

But the more I got to know my hunky study buddy, the more questions I came away with. Questions like: Why doesn’t he date? Why does he avoid human touch? Why does he hate all things fun and wonderful?

The psychology student in me became obsessed with getting inside Ken’s head, while the spoiled brat in me became obsessed with getting inside his heart.

In 2003, I found the one thing I love more than bad boys…

A good challenge.

 

ARC provided in exchange for an honest review.

Brooke (BB) Bradley’s romance force field had always gravitated towards good for nothing bad boys. After years of being burned, she vowed to change her ways but she never thought it would take her to a completely different direction.

Ken Easton had been her mutual friend but nothing more than being in the periphery. That was until she saw him in a GQ worthy outfit that tingled her bits. But BB had a work cut out for her if she wanted to (un)tame the man.

He wasn’t even a man. He was a rare subspecies, commonly referred to as a gentleman, that I didn’t even know still existed

Ken has always been my least favorite character in this series but I did like him here and definitely the one I could relate to the most – the lack of emotion, the anti hug lol! While he was stoic, he had his own kind of charm getting into BB’s (and readers’) heart with his subtle thoughtfulness.

He made me laugh and he made me crazy and he made me a better version of myself. But, most of all, he made me want things that I wasn’t sure he could give me. Things he didn’t believe in.

I like BB the most in this book compared to previous ones. She was more mature while still retained a shadow of characteristics that made her lovable. Over the span of this series, I felt like I’ve known BB through her joys and heartaches. Even though I’m not a fan of all things happy (lol!), I’m glad that they found and balanced each other out.

Suit is a tale of opposite attractions. This book would appeal to readers looking for a lighthearted romance with lovable quirky characters.

Final Verdict:

Books in the series:
Skin (44 Chapters, #1) by B.B. Easton Speed (44 Chapters, #2) by B.B. Easton Star (44 Chapters, #3) by B.B. Easton Suit (44 Chapters, #4) by B.B. Easton

This review is also available on Goodreads.
