Some mistakes are worth making.
Reclusive comic book artist Trip Spector spends his life doodling super-square, straitlaced superheroes, hiding from his fans, and crushing on his unattainable boss until he meets the dork of his dreams. Silas Goolsby is a rowdy FX makeup creator with a loveless love life and a secret streak of geek who yearns for unlikely rescues and a truly creative partnership.
Against their better judgment, they fall victim to chemistry, and what starts as infatuation quickly grows tender and terrifying. With Silas’s help, Trip gambles his heart and his art on a rotten plan: sketching out Scratch, a “very graphic novel” that will either make his name or wreck his career. But even a smash can’t save their world if Trip retreats into his mild-mannered rut, leaving Silas to grapple with betrayal and emotions he can’t escape.
What will it take for this dynamic duo to discover that heroes never play it safe?

This book was just so funny, a lil angsty and alot hot!!!
I love love loved the names of all the characters in this book! But the 2 MC’s were off the hook!
Trip & Silas
Trip was… well Trip was a trip! He really was! He was like a recluse that took hits of a joint and then came out with the wackiest shit!
“He felt like he’d eaten a hash brownie that was giving him a prostate massage.”
That line right there pretty much sums it all up! I loved his inane thoughts, his allergies, his phobias, HIM… I just loved him!
I loved how fierce he got in bed, to be honest it was a total turn on. The nerd boy turns sex freak in the bedroom… SWOON
Silas~ There was not 1 thing I didn’t love about him! Seriously! He was Southern, he was a real smooth talker, he was southern… did I say he was Southern?
“It’s all new turf. No secrets. No plan. No map. Just treasure.”
I loved the comic book angle. It was awesome! And for a nerd girl that grew up in the 80’s who loved all things comic this book just did me good!!!
My favourite part?
“Torn open, buttons everywhere.” Trip sighed and closed his eyes. “Like Clark Kent pulling his shirt open to reveal that big red S. Except it feels like I pull my shirt open to reveal my chest, and then I pull my chest open to reveal my heart, and I pull my heart open–“
“–and there’s this whole world waiting to be built from scratch.”
