Today I am back for Day #12 of the Black Resilience Booksta Challenge. I explained all the rules in my first post here. I’m hoping this will inspire other readers to read, review and amplify more black voices. Feel free to join me! You can refer to the template below. You can also check out the dedicated category on the main page of this blog for all the posts that came before this one.
Also, before I begin, feel free to join me on Bookstagram next month for a challenge created by myself @my_bookish_universe and my friend @whatwanderingwindyreads. It’s based on actual national holidays!
I chose Meet Cute Club by Jack Harbon for Day #12 because it is a sexy, steamy romance novel between a gay black man and white man. Jack Harbon himself is a POC gay author.
Jordan Collins doesn’t need a man.
What he needs is for his favorite author to release another one of her sexy supernatural novels and more people to sign up for the romance book club that he fears is slowly and steadily losing its steam.
The very last thing he needs is for that same employee, Rex Bailey, to waltz into his living room and ask to join Meet Cute Club. Despite his immediate thoughts—like laughing in his face and telling him to kick rocks—Jordan decides that if he wants this club to continue thriving, he can’t turn away any new members. Not even ones like Rex, who somehow manage to be both frustratingly obnoxious and breathtakingly handsome.
As Jordan and Rex team up to bring the club back from the ashes, Jordan soon discovers that Rex might not be the arrogant troll he made himself out to be, and that, like with all things in life, maybe he was wrong to judge a book by its cover…
Whoooooo! This book was so hot I nearly put it in the fridge just to cool down. I love the hate-to-lovers trope and the sexual tension between Jordan and Rex was fire! As the host of a bookclub myself, I really related to Jordan’s anxiety in wanting it to be successful. It was such a wholesome, cute, fun novel to read. My only critique was I wish it had been a bit longer. I saw on Goodreads that this was Book #1 in a series, so please Jack release more!!! Also, it’s really important to read from black LGBTQ voices. I would recommend this to everybody!
If you are interested in getting a copy, you can order it here.
Thank you so much for reading, I will see you next time for Day #13.
Peace & Love xoxo
