Bromantically Yours by K.C. Wells

A friends-to-lovers novella that came from Out of the Shadows, because Nate and Dylan needed a story…

Nate and Dylan have been pals for a long time. So what if their friends think they’ve got a little bromance going? Doesn’t mean there’s anything more to it than that, right? And even if there is, Nate and Dylan are totally oblivious…

Until the night they share a drunken kiss—and everything changes.

A 100 page novella giving these two bros their own story. I've not read the rest of the series and had no prior knowledge of Nate and Dylan's relationship. While this could be a standalone, I felt I didn't have enough background to really be invested. I couldn't connect with them much at all, I think it's important to be in the know with the rest of the series.

So, having said that, I found the sexual situations to be lighthearted and slightly funny, but they lost all heat, in my opinion. The first encounter in bed between the two boys was exploratory but also too clinical. Do this, do that. The guys are romantically clueless on being with another man and they seek advice from their friends, who recently solidified their own gay relationship and I'm not sure that helped or hindered the story for me. The characters really fell right into each other without any qualms or odd feelings about going from straight to gay. Could have used a bit more drama? Bromantically Yours left me sorta on the fence. Didn't hate it, didn't love it.

I absolutely adored Bromantically Yours! Not only was the bromance turned more relationship between Nate and Dylan cute to watch play out, but there are some seriously sexy scenes. In fact, their first scene when Nate gave Dylan a hand… I had to put my Kindle down and catch my breath because not only was it unexpected, but it was hawt! What I enjoyed most about this novella is that Wells builds on the decades-long friendship and history as best friends to move their relationship forward without it feeling rushed. Yet she allows them to take it slow, so to speak, when it comes to the sexual aspects of their new relationship status. We get to see Dylan freak out over their first encounter and both men experience nerves as they contemplate more. I liked that they sought out advice, no matter how awkwardly done, from their friends who were able to guide them thoughtfully. Nate’s conversation with his mom broke my heart for him; to learn that the person who is supposed to love you unconditionally has views so different than your own and can dismiss your relationship so easily, that had to hurt. But at least that conversation allowed Nate to realize just how much Dylan meant to him. Their first date was adorable, but their Valentine’s Day date was practically perfect – Dylan did a great job of sweeping Nate off his feet.

If you haven’t read Out of the Shadows yet, don’t worry because it’s not necessary. Nate and Dylan make appearances as Josh’s friends, but they don’t have major roles other than being supportive of his relationship with Christian. If anything, you may end up wanting to read Out of the Shadows because Josh and Christian play pretty big roles in Bromantically Yours as Nate and Dylan find their way from friends to lovers. Either way, Wells has penned a perfectly romantic friends-to-lovers novella that left me with a smile on my face and hoping that it gets released as an audiobook. Bromantically Yours has earned a spot on my holiday re-read shelf and the five stars that goes with it.

I've always written, right from an early age. I was always writing stories as a child, and as I grew up, I had the idea of writing a novel, like so many people do. Born and raised in the north-west of England, K.C. Wells always loved writing. Words were important. Full stop. However, when childhood gave way to adulthood, the writing ceased, as life got in the way. K.C. discovered erotic fiction in 2009, where the purchase of a ménage storyline led to the startling discovery that reading about men in love was damn hot. In 2012, arriving at a really low point in life led to the desperate need to do something creative. An even bigger discovery waited in the wings—writing about men in love was even hotter... K.C. now writes full time and is loving every minute of her new career. The laptop still has no idea of what hit it... it only knows that it wants a rest, please. And it now has to get used to the idea that where K.C goes, it goes.
