PRE-RELEASE REVIEW : Spencer Cohen, Book Three (Spencer Cohen, #3) by N.R. Walker

Original Title
Spencer Cohen, Book Three
Edition Language
***  SPOILER ALERT ! ***
From The moment I read the first Spencer Cohen book #1 and ‘met’ Spencer and Andrew, I knew that this book will stay with me forever and ever and ever. How’s the chance you’ll meet your half-soul in a ‘fake boyfriend’ status to get your walked out fiancée’s back? Andrew has all the luck the first day he met Spencer. The lumberjack handsome Australian’s who’s living in L.A, pretended to be his boyfriend, and Andrew wasn’t sure if he wanted Eli’s back to him, or not, ever since. Then their journey begun.;

This series seems like a fluffy mushy sweet read outside, but then I read this, and I found some deep thoughts about a kid’s soul (little Spencer and Archie) whose seek for their parent’s unconditional love. I found that the way Andrew loves Spencer is more ‘unconditional’ that his own parents, not to mention Andrew’s parents, and Spencer’s family he chosen himself, his friends. 

I cried over some ‘touchy moments’, the moment Spencer ‘felt’ like he lost Andrew for Eli, the moment how’s the whole family panicked over Spencer’s anaphylactic shock, the moment Spencer knew he lost Archie (because he has no one to talk to), the moment Andrew drew an elephant because it reminds him of Spencer, the moment Andrew said ‘I love you’…and the best moment in the plane when all of the sudden Spencer told Andrew ‘I love you’.  So many precious moments, that made a girl in me wanted my very own Andrew.
Oh, don’t mention that shy, geeky, sweet Andrew ‘outside’, is ‘the bossy Andrew’ ‘inside’… Ahem !
And all the play with magazines cover, I found it adorable, and very genuine.  And I hope Jeff wouldn’t that I quote this…

Maybe there's a God above
But all I've ever learned from love
Was how to shoot somebody who outdrew ya
And it's not a cry that you hear at night
It's not somebody who's seen the light
It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah

 Overall, this has become one of my favorite series (another one from Nic. Duh.), Andrew and Spencer are easily let me love them. Unconditionally.
Highly recommended !

Here are some of my favorite quotes :
“We are. This is the first course. Then we cook, then you r** me, then you f*** me.” Oh, yeah. Bossy Andrew was back. His words went straight to my c***. “Have I ever told you that it turns me on when you say filthy things like that?”

...He chuckled. “Andrew’s favourite—” I used his chest as a buzzer again. “Bzzzz. What is sex and food? And music and conversation, but mostly sex and food.” He laughed, vibrating against my chest. “Correct.” “I’m good at this game.” Andrew snorted before he gave another clue. “Andrew said we’d be doing this tonight.” “Bzzzz.” I buzzered him again.“What is r****** and f******?”

"But then you came along, and I don’t want to be just me anymore. I want to hang out with you all the time, but we shouldn’t do that should we? Because if you decide to not be with me anymore, I’m not sure I’d know what to do, and that scares me. It’s been just me for so long, and I knew how to deal with that. But if I had to be just me now, I’m not sure I could.”

...I swore to myself years ago we would never do. And that was fall in love. Yet there he slept on a fold-up bed in my hospital room. And I was in love with him.

 “My home is in LA. With Emilio and Lola, and there’s this pretty amazing guy I’m seeing. He’s on the cover of The World’s Most Incredible Boyfriends and everything.” He fought a smile. “Is he now?” “Yep. And the Sexiest Man Alive, Cockness Monster edition. It was a sell-out, just flew off the shelves.”

...“I love you. Andrew Landon, I am in love with you. I have been in love with you since that time at my place when I asked you to pick an album to play, and out of all of my vinyl collection, you picked Jeff Buckley’s ‘Hallelujah.’ I just haven’t been able to tell you, until now. You healed something inside me.”

ARC given by the author in exchange of a fair and unbiased review.
  N.R. Walker is an Australian author, who loves her genre of gay romance. She loves writing and spends far too much time doing it, but wouldn’t have it any other way.   She is many things: a mother, a wife, a sister, a writer. She has pretty, pretty boys who live in her head, who don’t let her sleep at night unless she gives them life with words.   She likes it when they do dirty, dirty things… but likes it even more when they fall in love.   She used to think having people in her head talking to her was weird, until one day she happened across other writers who told her it was normal.   She’s been writing ever since…
