M/M - novella
TBR Reviewer: Becca
How far are you willing to go for love? Are you willing to put aside your pride and allow yourself to be open to abuse if it meant being with the one you can’t help but admire? Ren finds himself exactly in this situation as his attraction to prickly Shin heats up but all everyone else can see is Shin watching Kyouya.
I feel as though the summary blurb for this book is a bit misleading on the plot. You go into the book thinking that there will be a good suspense and a bit of who-done-it but that isn’t the case at all. Not to say that the author didn’t do a very good job at suspense but it was suspense involving the characters and not that plot. That plot actually fell through for me but the one involving the romance of these characters held tight and was top notch.
The chemistry between the characters literally sizzled on the pages, you could feel the draw between the two even as Sin tried to continuously push Ren away. If you enjoy books that don’t immediately have the characters going at each other then this should be at the top of the least. Because of this delay we got and awesome in depth look at these imperfect characters and just what made them tick.
What the book could have use more of is details, not in characters because as I mentioned before that was well done but in the overall telling of the book. More could have been put into how the characters looked and my God, describe the surrounding area! It took awhile for it to dawn on me that these characters are in Japan and not some made up place brought to life by the author. Part of that I blame on me being an idiot but I also feel that had the author put a some detail into the scenery than I might have caught on faster.
While it’s not perfect Incognito is good for a sizzling hot read involving frustratingly interesting characters.
