For years, Spencer Lyons has been a devoted best friend to Max Ramirez, helping him through break up after break up. But Spencer has never let Max know his true feelings -- he’s been in love with his best friend for years.
It doesn’t occur to Max that club-hopping Spencer has deeper feelings for him. When he does learn of Spencer’s love, Max begins to wonder ... should he admit to the love he feels himself and risk losing his best friend if it ends in yet another break up? Or will Spencer always be devotedly his?
Freya’s Book Brief
Devotedly His is another story in the time-honoured concept of friends to lovers. Spencer loves his best friend, Max. He’ll always be by his side, even if Max doesn’t see him in a romantic way.
Spencer has a monied family, but needed to do something other than go into the family business. So, he works in a boutique. He needed to hook up with someone, to numb the pain, to take his mind off the one he truly wants. So, he goes to nightclubs.
Max wants serious, which puts Spencer out of contention because as far as Max is concerned, he’s never known Spencer to have anything but a hookup. He doesn’t realise why Spencer acts the way he does.
An enlightening encounter has Spencer wanting more, but Max is afraid to lose their friendship in favour of something that might not work. Enter the angst part of the story.
Devotedly His, isn’t long, but it is well written. Its length doesn’t allow elaborate scenarios and deep, meaningful plot lines. For its length, Devotedly His made the most of what was available. Yes, it is basic, but nonetheless stimulating and it had my heart stuttering.
