A Lesson in Pride: MM Romance Novel

51iU1GRS-CL

“He’s the last thing I need, so why can’t I keep my eyes off him?”

Up-and-coming New York art prodigy Joshua Lucky is finding himself to be anything but. After the closeted college student has a drunken meltdown at his well-to-do family’s Christmas party (involving a few bombshell confessions and some not-so-polite uses for the angel tree topper) he suddenly finds himself disowned and cut off from the family funds.

Back in New York, Josh tries to put the hangover behind him as he prepares for a swanky art competition. Of course fate has other plans, and after crossing paths with a mysterious bad-boy named Luke, Josh begins to question everything he thought he knew about himself.

Josh can’t help but think that this unrefined biker (dreamy as he is) is the last thing his reputation needs right now. But when Luke drops a few bombshell confessions of his own and Josh is left to find out who his true friends are, the artist might just find that opposites attract.

“A Lesson in Pride” is a steamy standalone novel with HEA and no cliffhanger.

    The premise is legitimate, but the first requirement of a plot about a protagonist is some -any- interest in the main character.

    That never happened. Josh, a college student, is rich and spoiled. A reader either must care for him, or have an interest to follow his story: sorry, any time Josh shows some humanity, he immediately quashes it. The shallowness of Josh and his friends endears no one to them.

    The mysterious stranger’s appeal is shown. but never clear. We watch his actions, but they only exist to interact with Josh. Even his reveal does not expose his personality. He is the guy who shows up when needed.

    Overall, a good edit would go far to helping the flow of the story. I find them distracting. Example: one doesn’t put a coat on a “hangar” on the wall, one uses peg, or any similar object. This is a minor one.

    The story could be much tighter. Too much internal angst goes nowhere:I don’t want to reread this, but lots of aimless angst could be cut easily.

    The 3 stars is generous. 2 1/2 may be more honest. At least get an editor.

    This book is in desperate need of an editor. There were too many spelling errors to ignore, it became distracting. The characters were not as developed as they need to be also.

    Not good…the writing was bad and it was really hard to connect to either main character much less to find them likeable. It really bothered me that there weren’t any paragraphs in the entire book, not to mention the missing words. I love this genre but I can’t recommend this book even at .99 cents.
