(This is a previously-published edition of ASIN B07FG1T414.) When Scott Cohen got word that hed been nominated for a Grammy, he wondered if the universe was playing some cruel trick on him. Of all the songs hed written, why did it have to be that song? Over ten years had passed since hed written the song and even more since Scott had become obsessed with Marshall Donavan, his brothers best friend. It didnt matter that Scott hadnt seen Marshall in years. Nor did it matter that Marshall never belonged to him or even that Marshall was straight. Scott never managed to stop thinking about him. When Scott got a call from his manager asking him to submit a song for a movie and a call from his brother Abe informing him of Marshalls engagement to Julia Sterling on the same day, Scott took it as a sign. It was time to say goodbye and forget Marshall Donavan forever. Submitting Just Be You to the movie executives was supposed to be Scotts way of letting goof forgetting, of saying goodbye. But his...

Just Be You Reviews
Awwwww, this was such a sweet read!
Scott had a crush (put mildly) on his big brother’s best friend, Marshall, in high school, but hasn’t seen him since graduation. He’s made a successful life for himself as a musician and songwriter in LA, on the other side of the US to his hometown. His brother and Marshall have stayed closer to home, running a firm in New York with their own success story. Due to an….interesting….set of events (involving two separate ‘scandals’), Marshall and Scott both find t ...more
This books has the potential to be very good. This is my opinion only but for me there were a few problems.
1. Editing - I'm not a person that freaks out about this and I usually overlook it especially if they don't throw me off. Here though they threw me off and stood out.
2. The unnecessary 2nd half of the book. The book was on it's way to being a winner at roughly 50% but took a straight nose dive into unnecessary bullshit.
3. Character flaws - Scottie has been in love with Marshall his entire ...more
This appears to be a first all m/m book for this author. The writing is solid and the editing was ok but had issues. I liked this one and I'll commend the author for writing very good emotional connection on one side of the couple. I believed Marshall was in love but the effort with Scottie was unbalanced. I just didn't get the same warm fuzzy for Scottie even though he was the longest invested in his feelings. He just never seemed to grow past the original "crush".
Even though I did like it des ...more
Rounding up to 2.5 because of the first half, the last 50% was just okay for me.
I read the reviews of this one and almost didn't read it because of them. I'm so glad I decided to ignore them and decide for myself. I will agree the editing errors were plentiful and annoying and some of the things Scottie did were childish but overall I really enjoyed this. Scottie has been in love with his big brother's best friend, Marshall, since he was 12 years old and seeing his pain at the beginning actually made me cry a little bit. I agree with others about Scottie's behavior at the c ...more
I would've rated this higher, but unfortunately there were a bit too many grammatical errors that I wasn't able to disregard them anymore. Initially it was just my finicky problems with punctuation, like misplaced or missing commas, that sort of thing. But eventually there were mistakes with the pronouns - like the classic "you're" and "your" mistakes - which I really hope would've been spotted during the editing and proofreading processes.
Also, I couldn't enjoy it as fully as I hoped because of ...more
4,5* sooo sweet
I was really liking this one but the overdramatic aspect of the book was a bit of a let down for me.
