I'm Straight, Right?

Availability: Ready to download

Can a best friend become a lover without throwing away years of friendship? Sometimes, all love needs is a little courage. Sloane: I know I can be a grumpy bastard, and I’m not the easiest man to deal with, but you’d think my best friend would trust me. We don’t keep secrets, even about our love lives. That’s what I thought until I found out Dean was seeing someone. I do Can a best friend become a lover without throwing away years of friendship? Sometimes, all love needs is a little courage.

But there’s more to the story than I thought, and now I have to deal with feelings I didn’t even know were possible for me. Dean: I would not recommend being in love with your straight best friend. I met Sloane in Basic Training and fell head over heels. Years later and a deployment under each of our belts, it’s still not easy. All I’ve wanted for six years, six fucking years, was Sloane.

After one slightly drunken night, will Dean and Sloane ever be able to get back to what they’d been, or has everything between them changed forever?

    If the thought of a straight guy and his gay best friend regularly cuddling up on the couch to unwind appeals to you, then you'll probably like this book. When Sloane and Dean first met, as fresh recruits in the military, in spite of their differences, something immediately clicked between the two of them, but only platonically. At least for Sloane. Dean had kept his love for his best friend as his most closely guarded secret, until Sloane's asshole ways forced Dean into an emotional corner, after If the thought of a straight guy and his gay best friend regularly cuddling up on the couch to unwind appeals to you, then you'll probably like this book. When Sloane and Dean first met, as fresh recruits in the military, in spite of their differences, something immediately clicked between the two of them, but only platonically. At least for Sloane. Dean had kept his love for his best friend as his most closely guarded secret, until Sloane's asshole ways forced Dean into an emotional corner, after which the truth flowed freely, creating an air of awkwardness in their friendship. The rest of the story consisted of a few steamy scenes and a lot of introspection about how they would work their way back to the close friendship they'd shared before Dean's true feelings were revealed. I really liked how confident Sloane was that, no matter what happened, no matter what they ultimately decided, there was no acceptable scenario where his life would not include Dean. This wasn't just a Gay for You story, though. This was a Gay For ONLY You, which is a slightly different animal, but I still found it pretty believable and entertaining. I mentioned the cuddling before and those scenes, before and after their relationship evolved past friendship, went a long way toward increasing my enjoyment of the book. The angst was moderate and, while the frequency of the steam was fairly low, the intensity was on the higher (and hotter) side. I'd rate this story at around 3.75 stars and recommend it to anyone who likes military men, without the actual war parts on-page. ----------------------------------------------- This book is *FREE* with Kindle Unlimited membership.

    Dean is a Doctor at the base, finally home from his time in the Mideast. He's haunted by what happened to his team after Sloane was sent home. He's always had a crush on his best friend of six years, straight Sloane, a big, Latino, muscled hunk, tattooed, surly and handsome Marine, since they met in boot camp. Dean has begun to date, to move on from his futile hopes. We see clear pictures of how deeply these two men care for each other.

Dean has begun to date, to move on from his futile hopes. We see clear pictures of how deeply these two men care for each other. So, when Dean has to defend his point, he blurts out his secret, and now, it's Sloane's time to really explore his emotions, truthfully and with the reality of his deep feelings. The kiss is wonderful, and then there's more exploring on a drunk night, but it opens Sloane's eyes. We see their conflicted thoughts, intense imaginings, and profound love of their best friend that they do not want to lose. It's GFY, friends to lovers, big/smaller and lots of side characters that were important to our men's lives, Deans nightmares and PTSD event is finally revealed, and Sloane is the only one who now knows how he feels, and while Sloane leans on his tight knit family, Dean's family is absent, aloof and unfeeling. I like these men, who have already proven how great they get along, as we now see their relationship turn romantic. These are two tough Marines, who deserve the best life can offer. ENJOY ! ======

    A bit abrupt at the end, but I really loved this essentially 'gay for you' military romance I thought the author did an excellent job of establishing just how close the two men were in their friendship. The crisis point also worked well for me as the catalyst for their relationship changing and it felt believable throughout I'd have liked a bit more after they'd got together just to see how everyone else dealt with the situation.

    3.5. GFY and its prettier cousin, BFY, are my big guilty pleasure tropes, so of course you’re going to draw my interest if you throw in Hot Military Men and Secretely In Love With My Friend. This is a sweet, fairly uncomplicated wish-fulfillment romance with modest angst. The editing could be a teeny bit tighter, but nothing jarring. I’m docking it a bit because I wasn’t buying Sloane’s utter shift to single-target sexuality. This is the kind of GFY that risks the unfortunate implication of bi-eras 3.5.

I can give benefit of the doubt that Sloane has an intensely demisexual interest in Dean, which to the author’s credit is strongly established by the way the two interact, but I was a little bit taken aback by how very “not gay” Sloane is in every other possible context. TL;DR: Sexy and sweet with hurt/comfort vibe, but beware of blatant GFY if that’s not your thing.

    Cute! A solid three stars. I liked it. Didn’t love it. Worth the read. Sexy and fun. Would read more by this author.

    Solid read I’m perhaps a bit harder on novellas than on novels, because I like a slowburn and deep exploration of feelings, and that’s hard to do in a short form. I can’t believe I’m writing this, but I think the story could have used more angst. These guys are soldiers, one of whom had a highly traumatic experience while deployed and clearly has PTSD effects. This is explained in a single conversation and then never addressed again, which was wasted opportunity to show their relationship dynamic Solid read I’m perhaps a bit harder on novellas than on novels, because I like a slowburn and deep exploration of feelings, and that’s hard to do in a short form.

This is explained in a single conversation and then never addressed again, which was wasted opportunity to show their relationship dynamic through the way they dealt with/supported one another. I’ve started classifying the “I didn’t know I was into guys until THIS guy” books as bi-awakening rather than Gay for You (GFY), because most of the time the guy actually is bisexual and it feels more sensitive/inclusive, but this book is a true GFY. Sloane has zero attraction to any other man but Dean. While the confusion and reflection over this was well covered in the story, I personally would have found this more compelling if Sloane had been demisexual, or there had been more to his new feelings than just the multiple assurances that it’s ONLY Dean, no other guy, not ever. Again, another 50 pages could have really strengthened this character arc.

    I guess this author's writing is not for me. I am sorry to say but the story was, for the lack of better word, dull with a lot of awkwardness, no chemistry and the characters that I didn't like at all. I was very glad when it was over. Another author on the No list for me. *sad face*

    They take too fucking long to be together and I wanted more cute and sex scenes. I love that Dean is in love with Sloan but he still goes out and has fun sex life and even though took him six years to decided to date someone, he actually does that for a month with a nice guy. During these years Sloan never dated anyone serious. Also this is a GFY and a friends to lovers book. I love their friendship because even thought Sloan identified himself as straight they were always cuddling. Safety: D They take too fucking long to be together and I wanted more cute and sex scenes.

Safety: Dean is dating someone and he fucks that person, but its totally okay because Sloan didn’t even saw himself as anything other than straight. After being intimate it’s practically the end of the book and they are not with anyone else I wish in all books with unrequited love the person suffering actually acts like dean, having a sex a life and trying to move on “No one said that being madly in love with your best friend meant you couldn’t get laid” M/F romances should learn that “I don’t know what that makes me, or if it makes me anything at all. Maybe I’m just, straight for everyone else but you?” Sloan was never with a man and tried gay porn after Dean gave him a bj and it didn’t do anything to him, but only remembering about Dean did the job for him. “Cue the best night of intimacy he’d ever had, and he could easily claim the best sex as well.” Sloan about their first time together

    Despite the title, this is 3rd person POV Full-on GF-Only-Y.. I liked the friendship in this story. It was solid and intimate. The rest was...OK. I’m normally a huge fan of the OFY, but this one made me a little uncomfortable in the sex scenes. I felt awkward for our GFY MC in his first sex scene with his best friend. Maybe that’s the intention of the author—me not feeling the hot, but feeling, “Are you really into this?” That made me not quite into it.

    2★'s = it was ok. Bummer. It didn't really work out for me like I'd been hoping. Honestly I felt more of a connection between Dean and Marco and kind of hoped they'd have gotten their HEA. Also, it sounds like from the Authors note this might be part of a series? I didn't realize that when I picked it up. Really, I didn't hate it I just never connected with Dean or Sloan.

    Spoilers - he's not quite as straight as he thought he was! :D I think this is the first book I have read from this author, although I know several are on my to-buy and to-read list. Solid writing, good chemistry between the two, some angst, some drama, and some sexy times as Sloane and Dean become more than friends.

    This is dramatic, romantic, sweet and funny. Sloane is a big, hulking guy with a permanent scowl on his face who only shows his softer side to his best friend Dean. Dean is an easy going, cheeky and sweet guy who has been in love with Sloane for almost the whole 6 years they've known each other. And Sloane is oblivious to to it. They've always had a comfortable, easy, relationship, if a little more physical than most.

They've always had a comfortable, easy, relationship, if a little more physical than most. But everything blew up when Sloane found Dean out on a date that he didn't know about. He was angry and confused because they always told each other everything. During the confrontation between them the following that night, Dean accidentally told Sloane that he was in love with him. That, and a long conversation with his mother, get Sloane thinking, about how he feels about Dean, and about his own sexuality. It's a really great storyline, but boy it took forever Sloane to open his eyes and mind, but I couldn't put the book down until the very end. I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author. This is my honest and voluntary opinion of it.

    I stayed up reading all night ! The Friends-to- lovers trope is one of my favorites and there's not many who can get to right. I love how the author emphasized on the strength of Dean and Sloane's friendship, the way their personalities fit together and the bond they share in the initial chapters. That was very well done.

This should have been longer, it being a novella was too short for this kind of story.....in my opinion of course.

If I were just browsing, I would have totally skipped this ~ but it was recommended in a reader's group, so I grabbed it. I'm really glad I did. GFY is hit or miss for me, but it was done really well here. I loved Dean & Sloane's friendship and how it evolved. For such a short story, this packed in a lot of information and didn't feel rushed.

    ”If he hadn’t been a sap before, the pure joy in Dean’s sudden smile would have certainly made him one.” It has been a VERY long time since I’ve wanted to read a romance that is just that- romance and nothing else. That and the title made me a little skeptical. However, this novella was so FREAKING CUTE. Yes okay, it had some moments that made me roll my eyes so hard and also Sloane’s reaction to Marco was a little OTT, but overall- this was sweet and made me smile.

    Sweet, short book with very little angst. Kind of a nice palate cleanser between more angsty books.
