Drop Dead series by Peter Styles

True Crime (Drop Dead #1)

AUTHOR’S BLURB: Geo is constantly misunderstood: he has parents that he can hardly tolerate, a well-meaning and loving brother who is disturbed by Geo’s true crime obsession, and all of his friends are online. The one saving grace for him is his best friend and co-host of his true crime podcast, Lex, who he’s been in love with for years. There’s only a few issues: 1. Lex lives across the country. 2. The two have no idea what the other looks like. 3. Geo is way too afraid to risk losing Lex to tell him how he feels. At first, Geo thinks that the perfect solution is for them to go to a horror convention together, but sharing a hotel room for three days will bring more questions than answers for the two.

This book contains sexually explicit content and not suitable for anyone under the age of 18.

MY REVIEW: Moments of necessary hilarity. My favorite part: the time around the attack on the door. The conversation right before and their actions after.Tears in my eyes! You’ll totally get it when you read it, but I don’t do spoilers. Except: you’re gonna love this.

Doubts (DD 2)-PS

Doubts (Drop Dead #2)

AUTHOR’S BLURB: Geo feels like things are finally going his way. He’s in a great relationship with the love of his life, and he’s just as happy as ever being best friends with his twin brother. Slowly, though, things start to change; his boyfriend messages him less and less, his brother fights with him more and more, and now he has to deal with the fact that a very handsome stranger has just come into his life. Is it even worth figuring out these mysteries, or are the people he cared about most better off dead to him?

This book contains sexually explicit content and not suitable for anyone under the age of 18. This book is approximately 50,000 words, has a happy ending and does not end in a cliffhanger.

MY REVIEW: I was so glad to get to revisit a couple I really, really liked. While this was good as a standalone, it’s better as a sequel. It becomes that much richer.
You could tell what was going on with the brother, but it still played out well. Predictable, but still enjoyable. Ah, Lex. “I’m not a chicken bigot.” I love Lex. He’s awesome.

Decisions (DD 3)-PS

Decisions (Drop Dead #3)

AUTHOR’S BLURB: It’s easy to say that money can’t buy happiness. But when Geo and Lex find themselves between a rock and a hard place, they have to decide which is truly more valuable: being happy or making their dreams for their life together come true.

Geo Durand is finally at a good place in his life. He’s living with his loving boyfriend, Lex, he and his twin brother are closer than ever, and he can focus his energy on his true crime podcast. The only downside is that his car is busted, he has bills to pay, and he has to support Lex while he gets back on his feet after losing everything. In a moment of desperation, he’s forced to turn to the person he least wants to ask for help: his rich father.

When Geo finally agrees to go on a ritzy vacation with his dad in the hopes of asking his dad for some money, he starts to remember why he couldn’t stand his father in the first place: he’s narcissistic, self-aggrandizing, and flirts with every cute guy within a ten-mile radius. The worst part about it is that Lex doesn’t seem to mind him. The two of them have to choose which is more important: getting money to support themselves and being miserable, or being broke and happy together.

This book contains sexually explicit content and not suitable for anyone under the age of 18. This book is approximately 50,000 words, has a happy ending and does not end in a cliffhanger.

MY REVIEW: So, the most important part: it’s good. I liked it. I recommend it, though trust me you’ll prefer it if you read the series as a whole.
Now, next on the agenda: OMG I want to DESTROY Geo’s dad. I mean, I want to get into a physical altercation with a fictional character. And that includes slapping Geo upside the head because he could have probably prevented the dangerous situation by talking to Lex. I mean, this is a perfect example of why I always believe in talking to people. You never know what you can help by being honest and arming others with truth and reality. Yes, I realize I’m very serious about what happened in a book, but if this doesn’t get you when you read it…well, then I just can’t help you.
Yes, this is the closest I’ve gotten to a spoiler in my reviews, but this one has me worked up.
