The Book Review Express Review Corner brings you
“Outcast” from Jamie Schlosser’s series; The Good Guys. (review below)
My infatuation with Ezra Johnson started how all obsessions begin—with a simple crush. Over the years I silently soaked up every shy smile and random act of kindness, wrestling them away to a secret place in my heart meant for unrequited love.
Because if it wasn’t for the fact that I tutor him once a week, I’m pretty sure he wouldn’t even know I exist.
Then I find his sketchbook.
And it changes everything.
There are two certainties in my life: I’ve been in love with Kayla Reynolds since I was fourteen, and I can’t have her.
I’ve spent years settling for a two-dimensional fantasy world, capturing her beauty with a pencil and paper. She’s kind, smart, gorgeous…
And she belongs to someone else.
Or so I thought.
An interesting turn of events makes me realize things aren’t always how they appear on the outside, and now I’ve got my chance to be the man she deserves.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve been called a loser. The cripple. An outcast.
But maybe—just maybe—this time the good guy won’t finish last.
Although OUTCAST is the fourth book in the Good Guys series, it can be enjoyed as a standalone. Due to language and sexual content, this book is intended for readers 18 and older.
I have followed this series since its start. The author simply amazes me more with each addition. Her writing style is one I truly love. Her storylines always tell a message that hit you in the heartstrings. The characters in her stories will melt you to a puddle of goo; even during the rough times. Outcast is no except to these things.
In Outcast her storyline hits the mark with today’s world. Ezra is picked on, tease, bullied (however you wish to term it) because of his injured leg, but trust me he is no pushover. His injury does not define him. Kayla is the only bright spot in his days. Kayla isn’t one of the most popular in school but Ezra just knows she is still out of his league. This is a heartwarming emotional journey that will have you smiling, tearing up and hoping for a HEA. 2 Thumbs up for a tender romantic read that you just don’t want to miss out on. It’s part of the wonderful Good Guys series. You don’t have to read the other books to follow along with Ezra’s story but I highly recommend them all. Ms. Schlosser’s way with word and tender storylines make for warm and cozy 5 star reads.
