HeartShip was a sweet and swoony low-angst romance that left me with a big smile on my face. I thought the idea behind this online relationship starting as an accidental catfish was really original. I was pleased the book included some of Josh and Benji’s online conversations, which showcased the easy banter and connection these two developed early on. As much as HeartShip is about a budding online romance, it’s also an opposites attract love story. I loved that the author captured how different the men’s personalities and experiences were, as well as how those differences never really impeded the way they worked together as a couple. Overall, this romance was low drama and conflict with interesting, lively characters. Though I liked the simplicity of Benji and Josh’s love story, I did find myself wishing there was a bit more relationship and personal development considering all the changes the heroes encountered in a short span of time, including Josh coming out, finishing college, and Benji becoming a massage therapist. Regardless, HeartShip was a wonderful read I’d certainly recommend to anyone looking for a feel-good romance. *ecopy provided by author in conjunction with new release.

Short & syrupy sweet. Enjoyable, but lacks depth. ✩ ✩ ✩ ✩ FOUR-STAR ✩ REVIEW ✩ ✩ ✩ ✩ ⚠ #REVIEW ⚠ > > Judging a Book by it's Cover > Looking Deeper Third-person Josh is a 5th year college student and NFL-dreaming offensive lineman in his mid-20's living in Minnesota. Discovering an anime show online, he meets Benji and they banter back and forth over several months, mostly through social media sites, then more privately. Josh has his suspicions that "princessglitter" is male, but ignores it, like he's made excuses and denied his own sexual identity all his life. But that all changes when, on a whim, Josh decides to hop on a plane to meet his friend in person. While, admittedly, the couple first fall into the stereotyped roles of the big jock topping the smaller twink, the unique perspective that the twink is older by more than a handful of years balances things out in a small way. The story is short. Between the lack of written length and the unusual format of the storytelling in this one, the plot loses some of the depth and the chemistry and connection that a reader tends to make with the characters are easily lost. But the cast is thoroughly enjoyable. The plot is entertaining. It was almost too light and feel-good with the out-for-you jock and little to no backlash from the college sports world? There was plenty of mention of Josh's family, yet we never once read of Benji meeting them - major downer to me. Instead, the story ends with a focus on one of Benji's friends. Predictability was low. The conclusion provides a satisfactory implied HEA but would have benefited from a flash-forward style epilogue to better solidify their status. Overall, it was a light piece that made me laugh and smile. .
