Noah Tanner loves life and the gay men who live it. Bisexuals rock too. Questioning? Even better. One-offs come and go like dates on a calendar, but his friends and his calling never do. He’s spent years raising money for San Francisco’s homeless in honor of the boyfriend who died. Ensuring the success of his upscale charity event is currently job one. He’s closing in on his goal, but the deliciously scruffy, oh-so-sexy Bachelor Bid contestant, Dr. Kyland Davis, is proving far too distracting.

Former Texan and no-nonsense surgeon Ky Davis prefers his beat-up Stetson boots to Louboutins. He’s sacrificed a lot to help raise his siblings—including keeping his orientation a secret. After a difficult year for his sister, he’ll do anything to see her smile again, even agree to participate in the fundraiser she’s been hired to organize. Unfortunately, the accompanying makeover by the irreverent and gorgeous Noah Tanner might be his undoing…

My View:

Finally Noah’s story!

If you have read the previous books in the series you will already feel like you know Noah and you could possibly be aware of the event that makes him the man he is today – especially where his behaviour with relationships is concerned. Although his grief and guilt are perfectly understandable I was left wondering why his friends had never tackled him about it before – even in this book it takes a long time for anyone to finally confront him and make him face his past.

Ky is the sexy doctor wearing cowboy boots that has put his own happiness on ice to protect his sisters. His sacrifice has cost him and although he is certain that he is doing the right thing he longs for the kind of relationship he sees his new group of friends enjoying. When Ky meets Noah you would be hard pressed to find two more different personalities and as much as they appear to irritate each other they also lust after each other – Noah is blatant in his flirting whereas Ky is more terrified but unable to stop.

Out of all the books in this series I felt I connected with this couple the least. Resolution for both of them is a long time coming and I felt for Ky, after all of his years of self-sacrifice, it was a bit anti climatic. Fans of the series will no doubt enjoy The Boyfriend Makeover – it has left me feeling as though I need to re-read the previous books again soon.
