    3.5 stars- Low angst, a zany plot, and insta-love

    I’ve neither read this author’s work nor the ancient Greek work Irresistible is based upon, but the blurb sounded fun and I’m always up for a good romantic comedy. Admittedly, I didn’t know quite what to make of the writing style and pacing at first. This was insta-love magnified, and it was more than a little jarring when combined with a quick, sometimes scattered narrative. However, once I adapted and recognized that the erratic and rushed rhythm was the point, it was easier to embrace this story where pretty much anything goes. Despite having a fast-traced relationship, I did like Cal and Brendan together. At times they were overly sweet, but it worked well in this story. Although I would have liked more relationship and character development, it was cute to see two people unlucky in love find their person and hold onto each other NO MATTER what comes their way…because it’s a lot. The plot of Irresistible takes full advantage of readers suspending their disbelief and after I settled in, I have to admit the book’s eccentric characters and outrageous storyline is a lot of fun. I still don’t know that I’d wholly consider it a standard romantic comedy, but I did chuckle at the absurdity sometimes and I’d guess comedy is really the only way to classify this high energy, slightly crazy romance. If you’re in the mood for something totally different but still with an air of romance, Irresistible most certainly fits the bill. *eARC received via Netgalley.

    So Much Fun!

    Every once in awhile my habit of not reading blurbs means I find something wholly unexpected, and Andrew J. Peters' book Irresistible is definitely one of those times. What starts out as a lovely little summer romance quickly turns into a 'what-the-heck' is going on here situation. It's silly and campy and corny and wonderful. Everything these two go through to get their happily ever after had me chuckling and seriously questioning what on earth this author was doing here (like, is he serious?). Ha, well yes, in a way he is. In the Author's Note at the end of the book Mr. Peters explains how he's drawn from an ancient novel [Callirhoe by Chariton of Aphrodisias] to bring the story into the modern age, and adapted the characters for an MM romance. When Mr. Peters very eloquently explains how he's drawn from that story to write Irresistible it made me appreciate this novel even more. My first experience with the writing of Andrew J. Peters, I was repeatedly delighted by the unique and creative way he phrases things. The details and explanations behind the characters' actions is charming and makes for a refreshing change from the status quo in romance novels. I'm looking forward to reading more by this talented author.

    An Unexpected Wild Ride

    What a fun book! First, let me say that I like characters that go beyond stereotypes and plot lines that are creative and push boundaries. This has both! Irresistible is literally, irresistible. As far as the typical M/M romance goes, author Andrew J. Peters fulfills all the standard 'story requirements' in the first few pages... and then the fun really begins! Irresistible is as much an adventure novel as it is romance- albeit much is tongue in cheek. I couldn't help smiling and even laughing out loud a few times. Poor, beautiful Cal-- a magnetic for all that cast their eyes on him and apparently for disaster as well. You won't believe the adventure Peters takes you on until you experience it for yourself. I received a copy from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    LOVE LOVE LOVE

    I was given this ARC from NetGalley and NineStar Press, LLC for an honest review. THANK YOU! Brendan is a shy socialite in New York wandering the city on a boyfriend hiatus and wanders into a Greek antique store to find the angelic Cal. Cal's visiting NY for the summer on a tight budget, working in his Uncle's store and living with his best friend, Derek, in a dirty, small apartment. It's love at first sight, but in a good way. Soon they are on a trip to Greece for their wedding when they encounter a long list of hilarious follies as well as moments of terror. Honestly, this book was everything I was hoping for and then some. I loved it. I loved the hilarity of the escapades. I loved that Cal had a sense of humor and said, "Gosh" when someone was trying to kidnap him. Brendan was true to his character in his endless search and I loved how he could forgive Derek even after the long list of disasters that they encountered. Thank you for writing such a fun, entertaining, sweet story!
