“Abigail Roux just knows how to write M/M romances well.”
~ Under the Covers

I always look forward to a new Abigail Roux book because I know there will be a ton of action and joking around but I’m also guaranteed a really hot romance as well. PART & PARCEL delivers on all those three fronts so I was pleased about that. However, this book does take on a slightly different tone in my opinion.

While you still get the joking nature that Roux is known for, there’s also something very heartfelt about this story. Moreso than any other book Roux has ever written.

There’s a near death experience that happens so quickly, I felt like if you blinked, you would’ve completely missed it. That’s how fast the action is. This can be a good and a bad thing because while it’s great at keeping your readers engaged, I would have also liked to see Roux slow things down a little bit just so readers could catch their breaths and really process what was happening. When it’s go-go-go! all the time, it’s very easy to undermine certain events when they are meant to be important.

In this story, Kelly and Nick are really trying to find a balance with this whole relationship thing. First of all, they’ve been brothers for so long that suddenly being boyfriends is a strange thing to them. They don’t know where to draw the line and I enjoyed seeing as they tried to work this out.

I should note that the timeline of this story kind of confused me. I can’t remember when CRASH & BURN was set but this one hits on several moments in 2013. Because Roux doesn’t waste any time on recapping events, it did take me awhile to find my footing with this one. However, it’s never that difficult to enjoy your time with these boys. Abigail Roux just knows how to write M/M romances well.

About Abigail Roux

Abigail Roux was born and raised in North Carolina. A past volleyball star who specializes in sarcasm and painful historical accuracy, she currently spends her time coaching high school volleyball and investigating the mysteries of single motherhood. Any spare time is spent living and dying with every Atlanta Braves and Carolina Panthers game of the year. Abigail has a daughter, Little Roux, who is the light of her life, a boxer, four rescued cats who play an ongoing live-action variation of 'Call of Duty' throughout the house, a certifiable extended family down the road, and a cast of thousands in her head.

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!

I’m really excited for this one. I’m hoping that it will be available on audio, like all of this series now. I’m thinking about revisiting all of them on audio.
