The D- in 403B by Jess Bryant Release Blitz

Sometimes a change of address can change your whole life.

Declan Ward has been called a lot of things in his life. Drug baby, delinquent and dirty little gay boy just to name a few. As a child in foster care, he heard it all and as an adult he knows better than to worry about what other people think of him. But when he gets into a war of words with his neighbor, he earns a new nickname and this time, it’s one he likes, one he decides he should definitely live up to.

After all, the new guy never actually said what it was the D stands for in his letters, but Declan has a few ideas and would be more than happy to show him.

Brett Coburn is a mature, respectable adult. He doesn’t get into arguments and he doesn’t name call like a kid on the playground. It doesn’t matter that the guy in 403B is the best-looking man Brett has ever laid eyes on. He’s a dickhead and Brett has the letters to prove it. That’s why nobody is more surprised than Brett when their thinly veiled threatening letters take a turn for the fun and flirtatious.

Is it possible they have more in common than they realized? Can they overcome the rough start to their friendship and turn it into something more? Or if they let their relationship become about more than just the “D” are they both bound to end up broken hearted?

This book was an easy, fast read for me. I was grabbed from the very start and didn't stop until I was done. Declan and Brett are so perfect for each other, even with all their baggage and differences. The banter between these two with the notes was just amazing. Throw in Declan's sister, Star, and a cute husky, and you got yourself a good afternoon read.

3.5 stars

This story of two neighbours who meet through the angry notes they post on each other’s doors is an amusing read.

Declan is an artist with a fear of dogs and Brett is a vet caring for a large, loud Husky. As much as it is a fun plot device, I actually think the initial notes between the two men is the weakest part of the novel. With the focus on the cute notes, there isn’t enough focus on exploring the characters in as much depth as I’d have liked. We don’t get to know much about Brett beyond his recent breakup and I wanted to know so much more about Declan’s life and his art. And also, these are supposed to be two accomplished grownups. The notes feel like high school and I lost a little more respect for the men with each successive note.

This is a pretty basic romantic comedy. It’s an entertaining but superficial read. Readers don’t see much depth to either character and the silence and miscommunication diminishes the characters and their relationship. This is an easy, single sitting read for readers who want sweet and cute and who don’t want to think too hard.
