Just Be You

(This is a previously-published edition of ASIN B07FG1T414.) When Scott Cohen got word that hed been nominated for a Grammy, he wondered if the universe was playing some cruel trick on him. Of all the songs hed written, why did it have to be that song? Over ten years had passed since hed written the song and even more since Scott had become obsessed with Marshall Donavan, his brothers best friend. It didnt matter that Scott hadnt seen Marshall in years. Nor did it matter that Marshall never belonged to him or even that Marshall was straight. Scott never managed to stop thinking about him. When Scott got a call from his manager asking him to submit a song for a movie and a call from his brother Abe informing him of Marshalls engagement to Julia Sterling on the same day, Scott took it as a sign. It was time to say goodbye and forget Marshall Donavan forever. Submitting Just Be You to the movie executives was supposed to be Scotts way of letting goof forgetting, of saying goodbye. But his..

Scott Cohen has had a crush on his brother's best friend, Marshall Donavan for as long as he can remember. After saving him the first day of his freshman year in high school, Scott wrote a song, "Just Be You," a song with a lot of heart and meaning. A song for Marshall. Marshall Donavan hasn't seen Scott Cohen in 8 years; in fact, he didn't even know he was so famous until he watches him receive his Grammy Award on TV. After the breaking off his engagement, he decides to take time off and stay a ...more

This books has the potential to be very good. This is my opinion only but for me there were a few problems.

1. Editing - I'm not a person that freaks out about this and I usually overlook it especially if they don't throw me off. Here though they threw me off and stood out.

2. The unnecessary 2nd half of the book. The book was on it's way to being a winner at roughly 50% but took a straight nose dive into unnecessary bullshit.

3. Character flaws - Scottie has been in love with Marshall his entire

This appears to be a first all m/m book for this author. The writing is solid and the editing was ok but had issues. I liked this one and I'll commend the author for writing very good emotional connection on one side of the couple. I believed Marshall was in love but the effort with Scottie was unbalanced. I just didn't get the same warm fuzzy for Scottie even though he was the longest invested in his feelings. He just never seemed to grow past the original "crush".

Even though I did like it des

Awwwww, this was such a sweet read!

Scott had a crush (put mildly) on his big brother’s best friend, Marshall, in high school, but hasn’t seen him since graduation. He’s made a successful life for himself as a musician and songwriter in LA, on the other side of the US to his hometown. His brother and Marshall have stayed closer to home, running a firm in New York with their own success story. Due to an….interesting….set of events (involving two separate ‘scandals’), Marshall and Scott both find t

I was really liking this one but the overdramatic aspect of the book was a bit of a let down for me.

I read a shorter, erotic book from this author recently and I was interested to see what she would do with a longer novel. The book focuses mostly on Scott and then Marshall as they work toward a relationship. Scott has always been enamored of Marshall ever since he was a kid. It’s part first crush and part hero worship, but even though Marshall is Scott’s brother’s best friend, they had their own friendship. It’s now years later, and while Scott is living his life
