    THe Pitch fell a bit flat. Score: 3.4

    ** Provided by Author via Promotion in Exchange for an Honest Review. ** -- MY THOUGHTS > Judging a Book by it's Cover: The cover displays an eye-catching, colored background with a male model in the foreground in black and white. In the heat of the PITCH PERFECT craze, Ms Albert makes a smart choice to utilize the competitive a cappella world to her favor. Looking Deeper: Boy, I have giving critical reviews, but I fear this one was not one of my favorites and I am so sorry to say so as I've really liked the other books I've read by this author. Third person POV. Taking you behind the scenes of a reality TV talent competition, not unlike "The Sing-Off", the story focuses on two young gay men who start out as each other's competition but become much more. There's a lot of drama and chaos, as one would expect, in a setting such as this. This story is nothing like the more-mature settings and characters from Ms. Albert's Portland Heat series; the angst and drama are exhausting at times. It was quite difficult to connect with the street-wise and emotionally hardened fame-hungry Cody, or with the overly innocent and sheltered, wholesome naive college boy, Lucas. The chemistry between them felt disconnected and, at times, even forced. There were a plethora of secondary characters, some no more than filler while others made a strong contribution. Dialogue was decent. Interaction was mostly good, although there was plenty of awkwardness. The plot had a lot of potential and a unique behind-the-scenes perspective that lent credibility and realism to the competition scenes. This one read real slow to me, like trudging through molasses; I think, because I could not connect with the lead characters but I could not find any fault in the writing style and pace set forth. There were several conflicts that were resolved in ways that I can't necessarily agree with for a long-term solution, but apparently in the land of fiction all works out well in the end. Predictability was low and the conclusion was solid. Maybe someone younger would enjoy the book more, but it was mediocre to me - which again, I truly apologize for saying. -------------------------------------------------------------- Heat Level: 5 ~ Score: 3.4 ~ Stars: 3.5 explicit m/m with light toy and games -------------------------------------------------------------- -- REVIEWER INFO > Tina J / Happily Ever Chapter
