    I was a walking,talking cliche--the gay man secretly pining for his straight best friend. Friends to Lovers story with two highly likeable characters with great sexual chemistry. Ever since I read P.S. I Spook You,I've been a fan of this Author.I love her writing an...

    The Blueprint gets a THUMBS UP for: - Best friends to lovers (I never get tired of this trope!) - Sexual discovery 101 (Blue knows he's not the straight arrow he appears to be, and whom better to ask for a gay trial run than his best friend?) - Banter and more banter (These tw...

    Normally I don't change my rating for a book, but I am gonna do it this time. See, when I read and reviewed this book, I didn't know it was gonna be a series and that there was gonna be a second book. This changes a few things for me...at least the way I feel about the ending and how t...

    Warning! Gushing, quotes that may be spoilers, Please proceed with caution. I still can't believe how much I LOVED this book. This book checked all boxes, sometimes it ain?t that deep just go with the flow and you will enjoy this. It was love at first chapter then I decided...

    SE Harmon does OFY a little differently. Blue is an NFL player on the field and a get-himself-some player after hours. It's not as if it's difficult for a famous NFL star to line up some company for the night. He takes advantage of the easy opportunities, there are no expectations, ...

    4.5 Stars! Something amazing happens in your world when the person you think is crazy special thinks you're kind of special too. I don't know if it was just good timing or what, but I really liked this one. And I'm kind of mad at myself for waiting so long to read it. It pr...

    I have a weakness for self discovery stories, the best-friends-to-lovers trope, and banter. In my opinion, SE Harmon nails all three, here. I love her style of storytelling and relationship development, too. It wasn't an easy road, for the MC's, but I liked it. Britton "Blue" Montg...

    Let me begin with what I liked about the story: I loved the humor, the banter, and the snark. I checked under the throw pillows and between the couch cushions, and she scowled. ?What?re you looking for?? ?Someone who gives a rat?s ass about your opinion.? I should?v...

    As much as I love friends-to-lovers trope, nothing frustrates me more than when the story focuses on hot-and-cold attitudes, especially when it comes to two adult men. While there are books with such plots that can satisfy me ? always depends on how the author works on the plot devic...

    S.E. Harmon has a sarcastic, caustic way of writing her characters. They have a sense of humor and self-deprecation that works for me and whenever I?m reading one of her books, I find myself unable to hold in my laughter. The Blueprint is the same way. We get both MCs? points of vi...

    I just love a friends to lovers story! It can be a very slow burn or a faster one. It doesn?t matter I just devour all the tension in it! Kelly is a teacher, living in a good environment, has wonderful parents, supportive and funny. Blue is Kelly's best friend, an NFL player, with ...

    4.25 stars Not my favorite of this author's, but I still enjoyed it immensely. Even though it wasn't as charmingly funny and the back-and-forth starting grating on my nerves, it did catch my attention and hold it throughout the book. This author is an auto-buy for me. ...

    .......3.5 Stars......... I debated for a bit about rounding up or down. I decided to go up due to Alexander Cendese?s performance in here. Yes, Sean Crisden was also a narrator, but I have a love hate relationship with him. I love the main voice he chooses for one of the MCs, but ty...

    3.5 stars rounded up! So going into this book I was kind of expecting the ending to be the worst and for Blue to drive me nuts. It wasn't as bad as I was expecting. I read some of the other reviews and I saw one saying how it barely felt like a HFN ending and that there was no g...

    I marked it read, since I got to 76% but I ran out of patience. 3/4 of a book with Blue being an annoying ass and Kelly an idiot doormat and I just could not care what happened anymore. Lots of funny dialogue in parts but that?s all I liked. Not rating because I guess it?s mostly m...

    There are too many examples out there of authors whose characters' banter falls flat on the page. Honestly, I almost never find myself laughing when the characters are supposedly cracking each other up and it's so annoying! Harmon's The Blueprint is one of the few instances of an autho...

    I cannot believe there is going to be another one of these books! I really don't think there should be. It left off in a good place and even though this was a bumpy ride for me, I feel like the story of Blue and Kelly should end right here. THE BLUEPRINT by S.E Harmon was like a ro...

    This was a difficult rating because I very much enjoyed Harmon's writing style and wit. I felt the need to begin at 4 stars and walk my way back an entire star due to my general feeling of dissatisfaction with the story and the central romantic conflict. Kelly and Blue pass the idio...

    No est mal pero ellos son muuu tontos!! y ese final casi hace que tire mi adorado kindle por la ventana, no me ha convencido, lo siento. ...

    Kelly and Blue have been besties from a young age. Kelly?s gay and out and Blue is straight, or so he thinks, but regardless, he has always had Kelly?s back. Even though they went down different paths ? Kelly a professor, Blue a hotshot NFL player ? they?ve remained super c...

    I have a weakness for self discovery stories, the best-friends-to-lovers trope, and banter. In my opinion, SE Harmon nails all three, here. I love her style of storytelling and relationship development, too. It wasn't an easy road, for the MC's, but I liked it. Britton "Blue" Montg...

    Let me begin with what I liked about the story: I loved the humor, the banter, and the snark. I checked under the throw pillows and between the couch cushions, and she scowled. ?What?re you looking for?? ?Someone who gives a rat?s ass about your opinion.? I should?v...

    **3.75 stars** Friends to lover : I love that. I might add ?life-long? friends. Opposite attracts, with a teacher, I might add a gay teacher, and a football player, so far seemingly straight : bonus points. And cherry on the top : derision, sarcasm, banter,?I?m sold !! ...

    As much as I love friends-to-lovers trope, nothing frustrates me more than when the story focuses on hot-and-cold attitudes, especially when it comes to two adult men. While there are books with such plots that can satisfy me ? always depends on how the author works on the plot devic...

    5 Hearts ***Tag team review with Cupcake! *** Me and this book, we got a thing goin? on and it?s too strong to let it go now. It?s not just physical attraction or sex or being buddies. I love you. This book did it for me in so many ways. I am a huge fan of the frie...

    it's going to take hail mary pass for this one to work out... Britton 'Blue' Montgomery is living the dream. He's the star tight end of an NFL football team and he's got his best friend Kelly Cannon...except lately it seems like Kelly's avoiding him. He doesn't return his calls an...

    Blue and Kelly have been friends since childhood; Blue plays for the NFL while Kelly is a physics professor. Kelly is gay while Blue is ... straight? Kelly has been in love with his best friend for years and lately Blue has been sending signals, definitely mixed signals, but signals no...

    S.E. Harmon has a sarcastic, caustic way of writing her characters. They have a sense of humor and self-deprecation that works for me and whenever I?m reading one of her books, I find myself unable to hold in my laughter. The Blueprint is the same way. We get both MCs? points of vi...

    *4.5 stars* "THE FIRST day of class usually went one of two ways: (a) I remembered why I loved teaching and why I?d dedicated my life to it. Or (b) I wondered why I?d even been born at all and what I could do to remedy that situation. Epic banter and deadpan humour! I 've...

    This is impossible to rate or review as a whole. So, let?s break this down. This author and me just work. I have enjoyed and 4??d all the books she has written so far, this being no exception, I think, well, I mean I think so about the rating, the enjoyment I?m positive abou...

    I just love a friends to lovers story! It can be a very slow burn or a faster one. It doesn?t matter I just devour all the tension in it! Kelly is a teacher, living in a good environment, has wonderful parents, supportive and funny. Blue is Kelly's best friend, an NFL player, with ...

    4.25 stars Not my favorite of this author's, but I still enjoyed it immensely. Even though it wasn't as charmingly funny and the back-and-forth starting grating on my nerves, it did catch my attention and hold it throughout the book. This author is an auto-buy for me. ...

    .......3.5 Stars......... I debated for a bit about rounding up or down. I decided to go up due to Alexander Cendese?s performance in here. Yes, Sean Crisden was also a narrator, but I have a love hate relationship with him. I love the main voice he chooses for one of the MCs, but ty...

    3.5 stars rounded up! So going into this book I was kind of expecting the ending to be the worst and for Blue to drive me nuts. It wasn't as bad as I was expecting. I read some of the other reviews and I saw one saying how it barely felt like a HFN ending and that there was no g...

    I marked it read, since I got to 76% but I ran out of patience. 3/4 of a book with Blue being an annoying ass and Kelly an idiot doormat and I just could not care what happened anymore. Lots of funny dialogue in parts but that?s all I liked. Not rating because I guess it?s mostly m...

    There are too many examples out there of authors whose characters' banter falls flat on the page. Honestly, I almost never find myself laughing when the characters are supposedly cracking each other up and it's so annoying! Harmon's The Blueprint is one of the few instances of an autho...

    I cannot believe there is going to be another one of these books! I really don't think there should be. It left off in a good place and even though this was a bumpy ride for me, I feel like the story of Blue and Kelly should end right here. THE BLUEPRINT by S.E Harmon was like a ro...

    This was a difficult rating because I very much enjoyed Harmon's writing style and wit. I felt the need to begin at 4 stars and walk my way back an entire star due to my general feeling of dissatisfaction with the story and the central romantic conflict. Kelly and Blue pass the idio...

    The Blueprint gets a THUMBS UP for: - Best friends to lovers (I never get tired of this trope!) - Sexual discovery 101 (Blue knows he's not the straight arrow he appears to be, and whom better to ask for a gay trial run than his best friend?) - Banter and more banter (These tw...

    Normally I don't change my rating for a book, but I am gonna do it this time. See, when I read and reviewed this book, I didn't know it was gonna be a series and that there was gonna be a second book. This changes a few things for me...at least the way I feel about the ending and how t...

    Warning! Gushing, quotes that may be spoilers, Please proceed with caution. I still can't believe how much I LOVED this book. This book checked all boxes, sometimes it ain?t that deep just go with the flow and you will enjoy this. It was love at first chapter then I decided...

    SE Harmon does OFY a little differently. Blue is an NFL player on the field and a get-himself-some player after hours. It's not as if it's difficult for a famous NFL star to line up some company for the night. He takes advantage of the easy opportunities, there are no expectations, ...

    4.25 you were made for me stars! I don?t know what it is that I love about gfy reads. I guess is the fact that you think your this person your whole life and then you meet or realized this ONE person you fall for changes your whole existence. That what happens to Blue his been...

    4.5 Stars! Something amazing happens in your world when the person you think is crazy special thinks you're kind of special too. I don't know if it was just good timing or what, but I really liked this one. And I'm kind of mad at myself for waiting so long to read it. It pr...

    I have a weakness for self discovery stories, the best-friends-to-lovers trope, and banter. In my opinion, SE Harmon nails all three, here. I love her style of storytelling and relationship development, too. It wasn't an easy road, for the MC's, but I liked it. Britton "Blue" Montg...

    ??????*A letdown*?????? The book centers around professor for a smaller private college, Kelly ?Kel? Holden Cannon (29) and NFL standout (tight end for the Aventura Outlaws), Britton ?Blue? ?Blueprint? Montgomery (30). Kelly is in love with his b...

    Let me begin with what I liked about the story: I loved the humor, the banter, and the snark. I checked under the throw pillows and between the couch cushions, and she scowled. ?What?re you looking for?? ?Someone who gives a rat?s ass about your opinion.? I should?v...

    **3.75 stars** Friends to lover : I love that. I might add ?life-long? friends. Opposite attracts, with a teacher, I might add a gay teacher, and a football player, so far seemingly straight : bonus points. And cherry on the top : derision, sarcasm, banter,?I?m sold !! ...

    As much as I love friends-to-lovers trope, nothing frustrates me more than when the story focuses on hot-and-cold attitudes, especially when it comes to two adult men. While there are books with such plots that can satisfy me ? always depends on how the author works on the plot devic...

    5 Hearts ***Tag team review with Cupcake! *** Me and this book, we got a thing goin? on and it?s too strong to let it go now. It?s not just physical attraction or sex or being buddies. I love you. This book did it for me in so many ways. I am a huge fan of the frie...

    it's going to take hail mary pass for this one to work out... Britton 'Blue' Montgomery is living the dream. He's the star tight end of an NFL football team and he's got his best friend Kelly Cannon...except lately it seems like Kelly's avoiding him. He doesn't return his calls an...

    Blue and Kelly have been friends since childhood; Blue plays for the NFL while Kelly is a physics professor. Kelly is gay while Blue is ... straight? Kelly has been in love with his best friend for years and lately Blue has been sending signals, definitely mixed signals, but signals no...

    S.E. Harmon has a sarcastic, caustic way of writing her characters. They have a sense of humor and self-deprecation that works for me and whenever I?m reading one of her books, I find myself unable to hold in my laughter. The Blueprint is the same way. We get both MCs? points of vi...

    *4.5 stars* "THE FIRST day of class usually went one of two ways: (a) I remembered why I loved teaching and why I?d dedicated my life to it. Or (b) I wondered why I?d even been born at all and what I could do to remedy that situation. Epic banter and deadpan humour! I 've...

    This is impossible to rate or review as a whole. So, let?s break this down. This author and me just work. I have enjoyed and 4??d all the books she has written so far, this being no exception, I think, well, I mean I think so about the rating, the enjoyment I?m positive abou...

    I just love a friends to lovers story! It can be a very slow burn or a faster one. It doesn?t matter I just devour all the tension in it! Kelly is a teacher, living in a good environment, has wonderful parents, supportive and funny. Blue is Kelly's best friend, an NFL player, with ...

    4.25 stars Not my favorite of this author's, but I still enjoyed it immensely. Even though it wasn't as charmingly funny and the back-and-forth starting grating on my nerves, it did catch my attention and hold it throughout the book. This author is an auto-buy for me. ...

    .......3.5 Stars......... I debated for a bit about rounding up or down. I decided to go up due to Alexander Cendese?s performance in here. Yes, Sean Crisden was also a narrator, but I have a love hate relationship with him. I love the main voice he chooses for one of the MCs, but ty...

    I marked it read, since I got to 76% but I ran out of patience. 3/4 of a book with Blue being an annoying ass and Kelly an idiot doormat and I just could not care what happened anymore. Lots of funny dialogue in parts but that?s all I liked. Not rating because I guess it?s mostly m...

    This is impossible to rate or review as a whole. So, let?s break this down. This author and me just work. I have enjoyed and 4??d all the books she has written so far, this being no exception, I think, well, I mean I think so about the rating, the enjoyment I?m positive abou...

    4.25 stars Not my favorite of this author's, but I still enjoyed it immensely. Even though it wasn't as charmingly funny and the back-and-forth starting grating on my nerves, it did catch my attention and hold it throughout the book. This author is an auto-buy for me. ...

    .......3.5 Stars......... I debated for a bit about rounding up or down. I decided to go up due to Alexander Cendese?s performance in here. Yes, Sean Crisden was also a narrator, but I have a love hate relationship with him. I love the main voice he chooses for one of the MCs, but ty...

    I marked it read, since I got to 76% but I ran out of patience. 3/4 of a book with Blue being an annoying ass and Kelly an idiot doormat and I just could not care what happened anymore. Lots of funny dialogue in parts but that?s all I liked. Not rating because I guess it?s mostly m...

    I was a walking,talking cliche--the gay man secretly pining for his straight best friend. Friends to Lovers story with two highly likeable characters with great sexual chemistry. Ever since I read P.S. I Spook You,I've been a fan of this Author.I love her writing an...

    The Blueprint gets a THUMBS UP for: - Best friends to lovers (I never get tired of this trope!) - Sexual discovery 101 (Blue knows he's not the straight arrow he appears to be, and whom better to ask for a gay trial run than his best friend?) - Banter and more banter (These tw...

    Normally I don't change my rating for a book, but I am gonna do it this time. See, when I read and reviewed this book, I didn't know it was gonna be a series and that there was gonna be a second book. This changes a few things for me...at least the way I feel about the ending and how t...

    4 Confounding Stars! I?m scratching my head as to why I thoroughly enjoyed this because for me, there were many things in this book that shouldn?t have worked despite this containing the well loved trope of the classic friends to lovers progression. However, this features an ada...

    Warning! Gushing, quotes that may be spoilers, Please proceed with caution. I still can't believe how much I LOVED this book. This book checked all boxes, sometimes it ain?t that deep just go with the flow and you will enjoy this. It was love at first chapter then I decided...

    SE Harmon does OFY a little differently. Blue is an NFL player on the field and a get-himself-some player after hours. It's not as if it's difficult for a famous NFL star to line up some company for the night. He takes advantage of the easy opportunities, there are no expectations, ...

    4.25 you were made for me stars! I don?t know what it is that I love about gfy reads. I guess is the fact that you think your this person your whole life and then you meet or realized this ONE person you fall for changes your whole existence. That what happens to Blue his been...

    4.5 Stars! Something amazing happens in your world when the person you think is crazy special thinks you're kind of special too. I don't know if it was just good timing or what, but I really liked this one. And I'm kind of mad at myself for waiting so long to read it. It pr...

    3.5 Hearts Tag Team Review with The Ginger Sometimes the heart just wanted what the heart wanted, and to hell with the consequences. There is SO MUCH to like/love about this story: the banter, the heehawlarious family dynamics, these characters, witty writing, great team dynam...

    I have a weakness for self discovery stories, the best-friends-to-lovers trope, and banter. In my opinion, SE Harmon nails all three, here. I love her style of storytelling and relationship development, too. It wasn't an easy road, for the MC's, but I liked it. Britton "Blue" Montg...

    ??????*A letdown*?????? The book centers around professor for a smaller private college, Kelly ?Kel? Holden Cannon (29) and NFL standout (tight end for the Aventura Outlaws), Britton ?Blue? ?Blueprint? Montgomery (30). Kelly is in love with his b...

    Let me begin with what I liked about the story: I loved the humor, the banter, and the snark. I checked under the throw pillows and between the couch cushions, and she scowled. ?What?re you looking for?? ?Someone who gives a rat?s ass about your opinion.? I should?v...

    **3.75 stars** Friends to lover : I love that. I might add ?life-long? friends. Opposite attracts, with a teacher, I might add a gay teacher, and a football player, so far seemingly straight : bonus points. And cherry on the top : derision, sarcasm, banter,?I?m sold !! ...

    As much as I love friends-to-lovers trope, nothing frustrates me more than when the story focuses on hot-and-cold attitudes, especially when it comes to two adult men. While there are books with such plots that can satisfy me ? always depends on how the author works on the plot devic...

    5 Hearts ***Tag team review with Cupcake! *** Me and this book, we got a thing goin? on and it?s too strong to let it go now. It?s not just physical attraction or sex or being buddies. I love you. This book did it for me in so many ways. I am a huge fan of the frie...

    it's going to take hail mary pass for this one to work out... Britton 'Blue' Montgomery is living the dream. He's the star tight end of an NFL football team and he's got his best friend Kelly Cannon...except lately it seems like Kelly's avoiding him. He doesn't return his calls an...

    Blue and Kelly have been friends since childhood; Blue plays for the NFL while Kelly is a physics professor. Kelly is gay while Blue is ... straight? Kelly has been in love with his best friend for years and lately Blue has been sending signals, definitely mixed signals, but signals no...

    S.E. Harmon has a sarcastic, caustic way of writing her characters. They have a sense of humor and self-deprecation that works for me and whenever I?m reading one of her books, I find myself unable to hold in my laughter. The Blueprint is the same way. We get both MCs? points of vi...

    *4.5 stars* "THE FIRST day of class usually went one of two ways: (a) I remembered why I loved teaching and why I?d dedicated my life to it. Or (b) I wondered why I?d even been born at all and what I could do to remedy that situation. Epic banter and deadpan humour! I 've...

    This is impossible to rate or review as a whole. So, let?s break this down. This author and me just work. I have enjoyed and 4??d all the books she has written so far, this being no exception, I think, well, I mean I think so about the rating, the enjoyment I?m positive abou...

    I just love a friends to lovers story! It can be a very slow burn or a faster one. It doesn?t matter I just devour all the tension in it! Kelly is a teacher, living in a good environment, has wonderful parents, supportive and funny. Blue is Kelly's best friend, an NFL player, with ...

    4.25 stars Not my favorite of this author's, but I still enjoyed it immensely. Even though it wasn't as charmingly funny and the back-and-forth starting grating on my nerves, it did catch my attention and hold it throughout the book. This author is an auto-buy for me. ...

    .......3.5 Stars......... I debated for a bit about rounding up or down. I decided to go up due to Alexander Cendese?s performance in here. Yes, Sean Crisden was also a narrator, but I have a love hate relationship with him. I love the main voice he chooses for one of the MCs, but ty...

    3.5 stars rounded up! So going into this book I was kind of expecting the ending to be the worst and for Blue to drive me nuts. It wasn't as bad as I was expecting. I read some of the other reviews and I saw one saying how it barely felt like a HFN ending and that there was no g...

    I marked it read, since I got to 76% but I ran out of patience. 3/4 of a book with Blue being an annoying ass and Kelly an idiot doormat and I just could not care what happened anymore. Lots of funny dialogue in parts but that?s all I liked. Not rating because I guess it?s mostly m...

    There are too many examples out there of authors whose characters' banter falls flat on the page. Honestly, I almost never find myself laughing when the characters are supposedly cracking each other up and it's so annoying! Harmon's The Blueprint is one of the few instances of an autho...

    I cannot believe there is going to be another one of these books! I really don't think there should be. It left off in a good place and even though this was a bumpy ride for me, I feel like the story of Blue and Kelly should end right here. THE BLUEPRINT by S.E Harmon was like a ro...

    This was a difficult rating because I very much enjoyed Harmon's writing style and wit. I felt the need to begin at 4 stars and walk my way back an entire star due to my general feeling of dissatisfaction with the story and the central romantic conflict. Kelly and Blue pass the idio...
