    ?I?m gay,? Julian said. ?Right, and I?m straight, so between us we make one bisexual.? I?m going, to be honest here, this book wasn?t great. But it also wasn?t horrid. It was just ?okay?. There was nothing too amazing about the actual story or about the ch...

    A sweet,feel good, friends to lovers read!! ...

    Not bad to be bi A story of sexual experimentation (after a lie) and falling for your best friend, this was pleasantly low angst and instead a sweet story of love. Julian has the curse of being stuck, having fallen in love with his best friend years ago and never quite moving on....

    Julian and Isaac are perfect together Love this story about two childhood best friends who wind up back in each other?s lives after Julian sees a pic all over his Twitter feed of his ?straight? friend kissing a guy at a bar. Although they were the best of friends growing up...

    Not terrible The book wasn't terrible, but it wasn't much of anything, really. The premise was a good start, but it doesn't go anywhere. Isaac enlists his best friend to pretend to he his boyfriend to pretend to be bi so he can be a role model for kids who need it. Great. That would...

    Isaac and Julian were great together, but it was Isaac's journey into finding out who he is, with and without Julian, that really set this story apart. When Isaac is kissed by a man and it was splashed all over the press, Isaac takes advantage of the opportunity by posing as bisexual f...

    Finally, another hit for Sean. Lately he and I were a miss. But I really liked this one. Simple, not too complicated and low on angst. I did feel like Julian was a bit of a doormat. He's been in love with Isaac forever, accepts every crumb he can get and is insecure as hell (Julian cou...

    Isaac and Julian are best friends from childhood. Now Isaac wants to support the LGBTQ community by pretending to be bi after he?s caught in a photo with a guy kissing him. But, he?s straight. So, he gets Julian to help him by being his fake boyfriend. As they rekindle their fr...

    It's a familiar trope to those who read m/m books; a guy finds himself in a situation where pretending he's not straight could be beneficial, asks his gay friend to play along, then realises he's really NOT as straight as he thought he was. Sean Ashcroft has even written it himself ...

    Love this beautiful friends to lovers story. Extremely well written and developed storyline that captivated me from the start and low angst but enough to keep you going. Julian and Isaac are wonderfully sweet and loving characters who are totally perfect together. I really love that ab...

    This was a very sweet love story, almost a second chance, between two old friends with little angst and quite a few hot scenes, but I would have loved to get more description of their life outside of their home and their bed. Isaac is a tennis player but the author does not dedicate on...

    Loved it! Finding a true and lasting love is worth the wait. Loving your best friend and having that love returned is life affirming. Sometimes you have to kiss a lot of frogs before you find your Prince. Waiting can be hard but, the prize at the end (beginning?!) is more than wor...

    I thought Player was a sweet romance with friends to lovers and please be my fake ?boyfriend?. I liked that the story really focused on their relationship and the whys and wherefores were just an impetus. It was fast paced, sexy and cute read. I totally enjoyed this story and would...

    A really sweet tale I really enjoyed reading about Julian and Isaac. It was really sweet how devoted Julian was to his best friend and amazing that he was able to have all his wishes come true. ...

    This was a nice, sweet love story. There was a spot or two I felt as though it jumped from one thing to the next and I'd ask, what'd I miss. Was enjoyable to read anyway though. ...

    I normally love Sean Ashcroft?s books but I couldn?t really connect with this one. The plot was dine but it felt like this should?ve been a much shorter and was very repetitive. ...

    For me it was missing something. Without the scenery and community that features in the authors other stories this felt flat and two dimensional. Sure it was cute, but it seemed very cookie cutter. ...

    It's a okey story. Nice, fun and sweet. Just predictable, I guess. There is not much depth to the characters.. But it's a nice story nothingless. ...

    Cute This was just absolutely as sweet as can be. Both main characters were adorable in their own way. Isaac was trying to come to terms with a few things he refused to acknowledge and Julian was just as patient as can be! ...

    A sweet,feel good, friends to lovers read!! ...

    Not bad to be bi A story of sexual experimentation (after a lie) and falling for your best friend, this was pleasantly low angst and instead a sweet story of love. Julian has the curse of being stuck, having fallen in love with his best friend years ago and never quite moving on....

    Julian and Isaac are perfect together Love this story about two childhood best friends who wind up back in each other?s lives after Julian sees a pic all over his Twitter feed of his ?straight? friend kissing a guy at a bar. Although they were the best of friends growing up...

    Not terrible The book wasn't terrible, but it wasn't much of anything, really. The premise was a good start, but it doesn't go anywhere. Isaac enlists his best friend to pretend to he his boyfriend to pretend to be bi so he can be a role model for kids who need it. Great. That would...

    Isaac and Julian were great together, but it was Isaac's journey into finding out who he is, with and without Julian, that really set this story apart. When Isaac is kissed by a man and it was splashed all over the press, Isaac takes advantage of the opportunity by posing as bisexual f...

    Finally, another hit for Sean. Lately he and I were a miss. But I really liked this one. Simple, not too complicated and low on angst. I did feel like Julian was a bit of a doormat. He's been in love with Isaac forever, accepts every crumb he can get and is insecure as hell (Julian cou...

    Isaac and Julian are best friends from childhood. Now Isaac wants to support the LGBTQ community by pretending to be bi after he?s caught in a photo with a guy kissing him. But, he?s straight. So, he gets Julian to help him by being his fake boyfriend. As they rekindle their fr...

    It's a familiar trope to those who read m/m books; a guy finds himself in a situation where pretending he's not straight could be beneficial, asks his gay friend to play along, then realises he's really NOT as straight as he thought he was. Sean Ashcroft has even written it himself ...

    Love this beautiful friends to lovers story. Extremely well written and developed storyline that captivated me from the start and low angst but enough to keep you going. Julian and Isaac are wonderfully sweet and loving characters who are totally perfect together. I really love that ab...

    This was a very sweet love story, almost a second chance, between two old friends with little angst and quite a few hot scenes, but I would have loved to get more description of their life outside of their home and their bed. Isaac is a tennis player but the author does not dedicate on...

    Loved it! Finding a true and lasting love is worth the wait. Loving your best friend and having that love returned is life affirming. Sometimes you have to kiss a lot of frogs before you find your Prince. Waiting can be hard but, the prize at the end (beginning?!) is more than wor...

    I thought Player was a sweet romance with friends to lovers and please be my fake ?boyfriend?. I liked that the story really focused on their relationship and the whys and wherefores were just an impetus. It was fast paced, sexy and cute read. I totally enjoyed this story and would...

    I normally love Sean Ashcroft?s books but I couldn?t really connect with this one. The plot was dine but it felt like this should?ve been a much shorter and was very repetitive. ...

    For me it was missing something. Without the scenery and community that features in the authors other stories this felt flat and two dimensional. Sure it was cute, but it seemed very cookie cutter. ...

    It's a okey story. Nice, fun and sweet. Just predictable, I guess. There is not much depth to the characters.. But it's a nice story nothingless. ...

    Julian and Isaac are perfect together Love this story about two childhood best friends who wind up back in each other?s lives after Julian sees a pic all over his Twitter feed of his ?straight? friend kissing a guy at a bar. Although they were the best of friends growing up...

    Not terrible The book wasn't terrible, but it wasn't much of anything, really. The premise was a good start, but it doesn't go anywhere. Isaac enlists his best friend to pretend to he his boyfriend to pretend to be bi so he can be a role model for kids who need it. Great. That would...

    Isaac and Julian were great together, but it was Isaac's journey into finding out who he is, with and without Julian, that really set this story apart. When Isaac is kissed by a man and it was splashed all over the press, Isaac takes advantage of the opportunity by posing as bisexual f...

    Finally, another hit for Sean. Lately he and I were a miss. But I really liked this one. Simple, not too complicated and low on angst. I did feel like Julian was a bit of a doormat. He's been in love with Isaac forever, accepts every crumb he can get and is insecure as hell (Julian cou...

    Isaac and Julian are best friends from childhood. Now Isaac wants to support the LGBTQ community by pretending to be bi after he?s caught in a photo with a guy kissing him. But, he?s straight. So, he gets Julian to help him by being his fake boyfriend. As they rekindle their fr...

    It's a familiar trope to those who read m/m books; a guy finds himself in a situation where pretending he's not straight could be beneficial, asks his gay friend to play along, then realises he's really NOT as straight as he thought he was. Sean Ashcroft has even written it himself ...

    Love this beautiful friends to lovers story. Extremely well written and developed storyline that captivated me from the start and low angst but enough to keep you going. Julian and Isaac are wonderfully sweet and loving characters who are totally perfect together. I really love that ab...

    This was a very sweet love story, almost a second chance, between two old friends with little angst and quite a few hot scenes, but I would have loved to get more description of their life outside of their home and their bed. Isaac is a tennis player but the author does not dedicate on...

    Loved it! Finding a true and lasting love is worth the wait. Loving your best friend and having that love returned is life affirming. Sometimes you have to kiss a lot of frogs before you find your Prince. Waiting can be hard but, the prize at the end (beginning?!) is more than wor...

    I thought Player was a sweet romance with friends to lovers and please be my fake ?boyfriend?. I liked that the story really focused on their relationship and the whys and wherefores were just an impetus. It was fast paced, sexy and cute read. I totally enjoyed this story and would...

    Cute story. I like reading cute and romantic stories. This one was so sweet with just the right amount of angst. To realize you've known your soulmate most of your life but not until later on in life! ...

    Good I usually pass on sports books, but I'm glad I didn't on this one. From friends to lover's, Isaac and Julian make the cutest couple. But with Isaac actually being straight and an ex-girlfriend who keeps showing up can their relationship survive. ...

    Friends to lovers This is a sweet friends to lovers book. I loved Isaac and Julian together and the way Isaac discovers the way he really feels about Julian. What I didn't like was Isaacs ex and her hate. ...

    Wonderful I love happy endings with friends to lovers. From childhood to adults with a few years in between they meet again and after pretending to be boyfriends it became real. Another wonderful book by a great author ...

    never got past the problematic premise - a political and moral bad judgment call. felt like it need more angsty friction to offset the sachharine moments along a predictable, but watery will-they-won't-they plotline. eh. ...

    Great. Quite an interesting read. Characters were beautiful, sensitive and hot. For each other that is. Lots of emotion as well there were lots of ups and downs. I enjoyed it right to the end.?? ...

    A really sweet tale I really enjoyed reading about Julian and Isaac. It was really sweet how devoted Julian was to his best friend and amazing that he was able to have all his wishes come true. ...

    This was a nice, sweet love story. There was a spot or two I felt as though it jumped from one thing to the next and I'd ask, what'd I miss. Was enjoyable to read anyway though. ...

    2.5 Stars ...

    Sweet, cute, friends to lovers is my absolute favorite!!! ...

    I normally love Sean Ashcroft?s books but I couldn?t really connect with this one. The plot was dine but it felt like this should?ve been a much shorter and was very repetitive. ...

    Cute story. I like reading cute and romantic stories. This one was so sweet with just the right amount of angst. To realize you've known your soulmate most of your life but not until later on in life! ...

    Good I usually pass on sports books, but I'm glad I didn't on this one. From friends to lover's, Isaac and Julian make the cutest couple. But with Isaac actually being straight and an ex-girlfriend who keeps showing up can their relationship survive. ...

    Friends to lovers This is a sweet friends to lovers book. I loved Isaac and Julian together and the way Isaac discovers the way he really feels about Julian. What I didn't like was Isaacs ex and her hate. ...

    ?I?m gay,? Julian said. ?Right, and I?m straight, so between us we make one bisexual.? I?m going, to be honest here, this book wasn?t great. But it also wasn?t horrid. It was just ?okay?. There was nothing too amazing about the actual story or about the ch...

    3/4 ...

    As a sucker for both friends to lover and pretend dating, I picked this right up. And its a nice quick read. Julian is wonderful and Isaac...well he isn't very self reflective. He is also a kind of crap friend but he does evolve and come to understandings about himself and what ...

    Cute This was just absolutely as sweet as can be. Both main characters were adorable in their own way. Isaac was trying to come to terms with a few things he refused to acknowledge and Julian was just as patient as can be! ...

    A sweet,feel good, friends to lovers read!! ...

    Not bad to be bi A story of sexual experimentation (after a lie) and falling for your best friend, this was pleasantly low angst and instead a sweet story of love. Julian has the curse of being stuck, having fallen in love with his best friend years ago and never quite moving on....

    Julian and Isaac are perfect together Love this story about two childhood best friends who wind up back in each other?s lives after Julian sees a pic all over his Twitter feed of his ?straight? friend kissing a guy at a bar. Although they were the best of friends growing up...

    Not terrible The book wasn't terrible, but it wasn't much of anything, really. The premise was a good start, but it doesn't go anywhere. Isaac enlists his best friend to pretend to he his boyfriend to pretend to be bi so he can be a role model for kids who need it. Great. That would...

    Isaac and Julian were great together, but it was Isaac's journey into finding out who he is, with and without Julian, that really set this story apart. When Isaac is kissed by a man and it was splashed all over the press, Isaac takes advantage of the opportunity by posing as bisexual f...

    Finally, another hit for Sean. Lately he and I were a miss. But I really liked this one. Simple, not too complicated and low on angst. I did feel like Julian was a bit of a doormat. He's been in love with Isaac forever, accepts every crumb he can get and is insecure as hell (Julian cou...

    Isaac and Julian are best friends from childhood. Now Isaac wants to support the LGBTQ community by pretending to be bi after he?s caught in a photo with a guy kissing him. But, he?s straight. So, he gets Julian to help him by being his fake boyfriend. As they rekindle their fr...

    It's a familiar trope to those who read m/m books; a guy finds himself in a situation where pretending he's not straight could be beneficial, asks his gay friend to play along, then realises he's really NOT as straight as he thought he was. Sean Ashcroft has even written it himself ...

    Love this beautiful friends to lovers story. Extremely well written and developed storyline that captivated me from the start and low angst but enough to keep you going. Julian and Isaac are wonderfully sweet and loving characters who are totally perfect together. I really love that ab...

    This was a very sweet love story, almost a second chance, between two old friends with little angst and quite a few hot scenes, but I would have loved to get more description of their life outside of their home and their bed. Isaac is a tennis player but the author does not dedicate on...

    Wonderful I love happy endings with friends to lovers. From childhood to adults with a few years in between they meet again and after pretending to be boyfriends it became real. Another wonderful book by a great author ...

    never got past the problematic premise - a political and moral bad judgment call. felt like it need more angsty friction to offset the sachharine moments along a predictable, but watery will-they-won't-they plotline. eh. ...

    Great. Quite an interesting read. Characters were beautiful, sensitive and hot. For each other that is. Lots of emotion as well there were lots of ups and downs. I enjoyed it right to the end.?? ...

    A really sweet tale I really enjoyed reading about Julian and Isaac. It was really sweet how devoted Julian was to his best friend and amazing that he was able to have all his wishes come true. ...

    This was a nice, sweet love story. There was a spot or two I felt as though it jumped from one thing to the next and I'd ask, what'd I miss. Was enjoyable to read anyway though. ...

    2.5 Stars ...

    Sweet, cute, friends to lovers is my absolute favorite!!! ...

    I normally love Sean Ashcroft?s books but I couldn?t really connect with this one. The plot was dine but it felt like this should?ve been a much shorter and was very repetitive. ...

    For me it was missing something. Without the scenery and community that features in the authors other stories this felt flat and two dimensional. Sure it was cute, but it seemed very cookie cutter. ...
