Blurb:

Screenwriter Noah Ashley has a few four-letter words for his agent when she suggests he improve his script by shadowing a PI. Still, because he’s an artist dedicated to his craft and she knows where the bodies are buried, he agrees. Then he spends a little time with the gorgeous PI, and suddenly it seems like a really good plan. The PI doesn’t seem to entirely love the idea, but Noah has never been afraid to go after what he wants.

PI Drew Rodriguez is used to people depending on him. He’s the classic rock for his family. Responsible. Dependable. The classic rock would never succumb to the borderline sleazy temptation of friends with benefits, no matter how sexy that temptation is. Drew is looking for something enduring.

Despite Drew’s misgivings, it’s not long before they’ve got all the requisites for friends with benefits going. Friendly, good conversation? Check. Fun times in and out of bed? Check. Hot, electrolyte-sapping sex? Double check. Falling in love? Yeah. About that….

My View:

When Hollywood screenwriter Noah needs inspiration for his latest work about a Private Investigator, his agent, who is also his ex-wife and best friend, packs him up and sends him off to shadow Drew Rodriguez for six weeks. Drew is a real life Private Investigator and life is nothing like the exciting scripts that Noah pens!

Things don’t start out well as Noah chooses to arrive at Drew’s office days late without much of an explanation. Drew wasn’t interested in having the man around from the start, having been talked into it by his partner Mac, so Noah’s tardy attitude to the arrangement raises Drew’s hackles and brings out his snark.

They start out as enemies but slowly their dry conversations and almost instant attraction mean they at least like each other by the end of the week. They are very different in nearly everything they do but this is especially so when it comes to relationships. Noah is happy to jump into bed with anyone and has no problem having a friends with benefits thing going. Drew is much more reserved and even the thought of a casual relationship brings him out in hives. He wants everything from a partner and isn’t willing to settle for less, until he does and then it hurts him just as much as he expected.

There are a lot of side characters in So Into You and an obviously ongoing breakdown, or even a life of trying to fix things, kind of relationship between Drew and his father. I like to see what has shaped a characters life and brought him to the place he currently finds himself but there was so much going on that for me it took a bit away from the story of Noah and Drew.

This is a slow burn romance, in fact it is incredibly slow whilst they tread carefully around each other and deal with everything else going on in their lives. Stick with it though – when they get to where they need to be it’s all worth it!
