“Since when are you into guys in ties? You only like guys who look like they rob guys in ties. At gunpoint.”
It was true. By 2003, my type had been well-established. There might as well have been a giant sign on my heart that said, Good Guys Need Not Apply.
Which is exactly why I had to friend-zone Ken Easton. The man was a former football star, smelled like fresh laundry instead of stale cigarettes, and had more ties in his closet than tattoos on his knuckles. Pssh. BOR-ING.
But the more I got to know my hunky study buddy, the more questions I came away with. Questions like: Why doesn’t he date? Why does he avoid human touch? Why does he hate all things fun and wonderful?
The psychology student in me became obsessed with getting inside Ken’s head, while the spoiled brat in me became obsessed with getting inside his heart.
In 2003, I found the one thing I love more than bad boys…
A good challenge.
“And when that GQ-looking mother fucker turned and looked out over the living room, he smirked…at me.”
Sigh. I can’t believe I am all finished. I can’t believe I read Suit in one night. And I can’t believe I won’t get any more of any of these fun and escaping reads. I just…need a moment.
I wanted to start my review with this part so bad and it might be a little long. More than anything with ALL of these books, I think Suit will be the most personal to me. I related SO MUCH to Ken out of every single character we come across in these stories.
I’m a cheap tight wad, I struggle with how to show my feelings accurately, my communication skills are lacking, I am a very routine oriented person, I like organization, and did I mention that I like to save money every chance that I get? But when I found my better half, the complete polar opposite of me, my whole world aligned. My planets shifted and my thought process became more easy and laid back. I relaxed. I learned how to operate better, just like Ken. So, to say I understood BB and Ken’s relationship would be an understatement. I have lived it. Maybe not identical to theirs, but close enough for me to understand the way Ken tics. I love how she portrayed it, it was the most real thing that I have felt in quite some time.
As always, internal BB dialogue was a hit, I think I’m going to miss that the most, especially the bitchy-Brooke dialogue. She seemed to be amped up in this one and I was all about that. Watching her grow and change was a sight for sore eyes. I can’t believe we have seen her grow into the person she has become, how lucky are we!
“I’d kissed a prince, and somehow, he’d turned into an even better prince.”
Although Suit didn’t end up being my fave out of the series, I feel like I will always have a soft spot for Ken and BB and their story mainly because it was the beginning of the life she has built. That was just so cool to see.
This series has been so much fun, one that I will always remember. I am so thankful that BB took the chance and risked her life (and identity) to write these books. It was the best ride I have been on in ages. But as much as I will miss these men, I am most excited to see what BB will grace us with next.
