Summary

A red-hot enemies-to-lovers, fake boyfriend, second-chance romance, and the conclusion to the Hopelessly Bromantic Duet!

Let me just say this—fake dating the cocky movie star was not my idea. Especially since he’s my former roomie and, gulp, my secret ex.

But my agent tells me I have no choice since I’m ridiculously overdue with turning in the next big blockbuster love story to my publisher.

Not to mention, ahem, writing it.

Hooking up with the smooth-talking English hottie once upon a time—fine, twice—were huge mistakes that I shouldn’t repeat, but pretending to like the guy who drives me crazy is my only chance at saving my job. That is, as long as no one finds out that every date we go on, every smile we flash each other for the cameras, and every hot, desperate kiss on the streets of Manhattan is absolutely fake.

Except…it’s not. At least for me. And he can never know....

Here Comes My Man is the final novel in the epic two-book Hopelessly Bromantic duet! Performed with a full supporting cast including: Vanessa Edwin, J.F. Harding, James Joseph, Faye Adele, Evan Parker, Shakira Shute, Robbie Martino, Blake Lockheart, Stephanie Németh-Parker, Stella Hunter, and, in a special performance, Sebastian York!

Here Comes My Man also includes bloopers, an interview with the leads, and the world premiere of The Boyfriend Kickoff, a prequel novella to the Boyfriend Comeback!

So much content

The conclusion of Jude and TJs story is just lovely. The narration by Teddy and Shane draws you into their story. And the extra fireside chat and blooper chapter is brilliant. And last but not least, the prequel to Lauren’s next MM book is just cruel, now we have to wait for the book 😀

Fantastic Conclusion!

Like the first book in this duet, I received an advanced copy to read but I had also pre-ordered the audiobook and started listening to it as soon as it hit my Audible app. Here Comes My Man is another amazing full-cast audiobook. The lead characters are performed by Teddy Hamilton and Shane East. There’s almost 2 hours of extra audio after the book concludes, including a fireside chat between Teddy and Shane, as well as a great blooper reel. Buying the audiobook was worth it for this extra material alone. The books in this duet are the first that these two actors have performed opposite each other; I sure hope this isn’t the last time!

I really can’t say enough good things about this duet. The fake boyfriends to real lovers trope isn’t anything new but Lauren Blakely puts her own spin on it and the voice actors did a fantastic job of bringing her words to life. TJ and Jude definitely get their HEA and I loved how it all worked out.

I can whole-heartedly recommend this great duet. If you enjoy MM audiobooks don’t hesitate to snap these up!

Part 2 in this sexy duet

have been impatiently waiting for the conclusion to Jude and TJ’s story, and let me say. I was not disappointed. Lauren Blakely writes sexy m/m romance in the best possible way. Pure entertainment from the get-go, as now enemies, Jude and TJ have to endure a fake romance together to preserve their careers. How though, can two people with their history, play house and not feel? Such a fun, enjoyable read with lots of sexy time, not too much angst, and a whole host of friends getting in their business, in the best possible way. Shane East and Teddy Hamilton, along with a whole host of my favourite narrators (including Sebastian York), narrate this story to utter perfection.
Then, as happens so often with Lauren Blakely’s audios, we get lots of extras including:
I Said Someday - a Hopelessly Bromantic short story - it’s William’s story - Yay - he’s 1 year sober, and ready to romance the sexy actor he’s been fantasising about.
The Boyfriend Kickoff - The Boyfriend Comeback prequel novella narrated by Teddy Hamilton and JF Harding, is the perfect introduction to Jason and Beck, and I can’t wait for the full length novel.
An interview with Shane East and Teddy Hamilton asking each other questions and discussing the premise of the story.
And. My favourite part. The blooper real. So funny. I was laughing out loud throughout.

A little bit of everything sometimes turns into a lot of perfect!

A M/M fake boyfriend, second (or third) chance romance that reads like more than a rom com… it’s a love letter with witty banter, humor, heart, heartache, happiness, and sweet, sexy, swoony (yes I said that) times.

This conclusion to Lauren Blakely’s Hopelessly Bromantic duology between romance writer TJ and his British love actor Jude is everything a listener could want.

A full cast narration from some of the best romance narrators in the business… sign me up!

Oh yes, and the extras areeeeee great!

5 STARS! A hard-fought, swoony & scorching hot love story!

Here Comes My Man is the second book in Lauren Blakely’s Hopelessly Bromantic Duet, and I was on the edge of my seat waiting for the second half of Jude and TJ’s story. Blakely really pours her heart and soul into her MM romances, and as a reader, I can feel, through her storytelling, how much these stories mean to her creatively and her joy in telling them. Lauren’s work is always a must-read for me, her romantic comedies and contemporaries are some of my favorite stories to read. Her LGBTQ romances are just as entertaining, sexy and well written, and if you’re a fan of her traditional romances, you’ll enjoy these, too.

I listened to the audiobook of Here Comes My Man, and I was so excited to get my ears on it. Narrated in duet by Shane East and Teddy Hamilton, Blakely complemented this perfect lead pairing with a full cast. Teddy Hamilton as TJ and Shane East as Jude were absolutely fantastic from start-to-finish. Their hard-fought, third-chance love story is brimming with romantic history, heart-tugging emotion and sizzling chemistry. Blakely crafted a layered, immersive, round-the-world love story between two characters who absolutely stole my heart.

Here Comes My Man is another feather in Lauren Blakely’s LGBTQ romance cap. A charming, endearing couple, TJ and Jude’s hard-fought, swoony and scorching hot love story was a heart-racing pleasure to read. Five smooches from me for Here Comes My Man by Lauren Blakely!

Delicious ending to a decade long yearning

After listening to the Hopelessly Bromantic Duet, Book 1, I immediately bought the second and final book. I was dismayed that Jude and TJ decided to cut ties when TJ had to return to America for work. Why didn't they just decide to keep in touch, to support one another through the difficulties of making your mark in their chosen careers? Well, thank goodness for a second book to resolve their terrible choice. While I did find their reluctance to open up through 3/4 of the second book, I decided to hang tough with their need to protect themselves from possible heartbreak and hurt. And I'm not sorry and I'm not being critical of the story. I'm a romantic soul who loves life when two people obviously good for one another choose to stay together. Lauren Blakely definitely wrote a story that kept me interested, occasionally laughing, and ultimately grateful for Jude and TJ's HEA.
I am truly impressed with the narrator cast. Their fantastic voices made the two books reach the higest level possible in enjoyment. I hope to hear more from these narrators, and compliments to Lauren Blakely and her editorial or publishing team for spending the money for the best voices for her two books. I'm currently listening to a sample of her next book, The Boyfriend Kickoff. It's going to be amazing and has the same lovely narrator voices creating the world Blakely invites us to join. I'll definitely buy it once available.

✫✫ 5 Stars ✫✫

I have to say that book 2 of this duet brought everything full circle in a beautiful way. I struggled with the ending of the last book a little and I don't love fake relationship tropes but AS ALWAYS Lauren Blakely changed my mind! She always has a way of writing her stories to show me I just haven't listened to it done her way yet ;)

TJ & Jude had major chemistry in book 1 although it took a little while to get there, that chemistry came back 100 fold in this book. I loved how they were fake/real dating at the same time. The way they grew throughout this duet really worked so well for me and made the ending wrap up in a PERFECT sexy love story. I loved everything about the ending to this story, no major drama and the little drama there was was handled so perfectly that my heart was super happy and full.

I said this in my review of book 1 but it has to be said again, Teddy Hamilton & Shane East really play off each other expertly. Even if they aren't close in real life they sure felt like it in their acting in this book, it was so natural which is what I adore in great narration!

This book also has a couple short stories that will leave you wanting more along with a fireside chat with Teddy & Shane and Bloopers!!!!

Beautiful, Steamy MM Romance 💕

💕 Here Comes My Man is the second book in the Hopelessly Bromantic Duet. Oh boy, this second part really drew me in from the prologue all the way to the HEA. This conclusion of the duet was so much more detailed into T.J. and Jude‘s past. We find out why the way they are due to past secrets they have been keeping for each other. The second chance (actually third) fake romance with Jude and T.J. was just so sexy/sultry with so much humor and OH MY GOODNESS… the very, very hot and seductive sex scenes. I really enjoyed Lauren putting in so much word play for these two characters. We find Jude and T.J. both have matured and both have achieved in their career goals. But due to having a “stall” in there professions they end up fake dating to help each other careers in the public eye and Aldo for inspiration. Then the line start to blur between what is real and what is first in “the show”. They both do not want to rush things again like that last times, but their undeniable chemistry has them both scared about ruining the special thing they have together. Let me also tell you… Lauren… oh Lauren … how she takes filthy dirty talk to a whole new level in this one! Woo Hoo! Holy Hotness! This makes my heart soar with the utterly perfect love they have for each other. They are just so many many misunderstandings between these two. It is exciting, but no angst which was awesome.
The dual POV Duet style narration was just phenomenal! Shane East and Teddy Hamilton we’re just so perfect for these roles. Shane East… I love that he brought his A game with portraying Jude! He plays that always so utterly charming movie star perfectly. He really makes you feel all Judes insecurities , his anticipation, hesitation the longing, the lust. All while he was protecting his heart. I absolutely loved when he called T.J. “STUD”… that word is just so sexy in his dominate tone! 🔥. Teddy Hamilton..oh Teddy…… he portrays T.J. on a whole new level! I thought the change in this character from book one he really is more romantic, more confident. His internal monologue throughout the book with so many different emotions. I felt each one. I thought the longing, the true love he felt for Jude but also the hesitation. He really got vulnerable and with high emotions were deeply felt. I adored all the supporting cast, it was so lovely hearing all of their voices!
And can I say LB wrote some of the hottest lines ever and her MM books for this one. I listen to a certain chapter on repeat..🔥

🤩 My favorite line… T.J. calls Jude a
SEX MAGICIAN….. ABRA-COCK-DABRA 🤩

Sometimes art intimates real life… #swoon

To say I have been waiting for part two of this story is an understatement!! These two have made their mark on me. The end of book 1 gutted me and at times I had to press pause on this story. The tension was stressful at times but delish in others. These two have chemistry for days in the story but they are brought to life by Shane and Teddy !!! I felt the emotions they went through, loved the growth you see from both of them and almost 10 years of a story comes to an epic conclusion in the best of ways. There are little nuggets sprinkled into their story and while I won’t give them away, you will know when you come to the answers to questions you’ve had. I love their love and I strongly believe that no matter who you love and who loves who… love is love and at this book’s core, it’s a love story.
Blakely weaves solid story themes for both men into their separate lives and their “fake” relationship together along with red hot passion and fantastic humor! I strongly suggest reading the first\listening to first book first\again before this story and you will not be disappointed with part two of Jude and TJ’s story!

Love finally wins

Here Comes My Man is part two of a duet about two men who first found each other by fate and things just weren't in the cards at the time. Years later, they found each other again; it still wasn't their time. This is their third shot at love and neither of them wants to be pushed together but due to circumstances out of their control, they must pretend to be together. When they finally let their hurt feelings go they admit they have loved each other for years and no one else could take their place.

I loved this duet so much and part two was perfect for Jude and TJ. It shows love isn't always easy and we must work at it and try again to get it right. We see both TJ and Jude's stubborn side and pride that keeps them from grabbing what they want. I loved the supporting characters as well. Great friends to have for both of them. It also gave us a glimpse of how life sometimes goes for a writer. I'm curious how much of Queen LB's real life was written into TJ's writing career.

Shane East, Teddy Hamilton, and a full cast of terrific narrators made this book come to life. Shane and Teddy were terrific as Jude and TJ. I loved it and highly recommend it. This is a MM love story but it's really just about love and finding the perfect person for you.

The perfect conclusion to TJ and Jude's story!

Here Comes My Man is the conclusion to TJ and Jude's epic love story. You need to read Hopelessly Bromantic first! It started out as a sexy, brief affair with an off the charts connection and ended in heartbreak. Now it's ten months later and Jude needs help with his image and TJ needs help finishing his book. The answer? Fake boyfriend of course. Jude and TJ are not exactly thrilled about having to see each other again and pretend to be in love. Hardly anyone knows they were involved years ago and no matter what they tell themselves, their chemistry still sizzles. They may still be mad at each other but their bodies still remember the heat. The connection. Once they finally have the conversation about what really happened. They know they need to let go of the past so they can have a real future together. Oh my Lord. This book. These men. I couldn’t love them anymore if I tried! They are just so swoony and sexy and funny and smart and handsome. Just everything. I love their sexy banter and their innuendos. I love their friends and family and I hope this isn't the last we see of TJ and Jude!

Audio: Teddy and Shane continue to amaze me with their narration. It's emotional, sexy and fun. I love this full cast of narrators!.

Grab this now!

After leaving me wanting with the cliffhanger from Hopelessly Bromantic, I couldn't wait to see what was going to happen between TJ and Jude. Lauren Blakely did not disappoint with the second installment of this fabulous duet! Tj and Jude broke up on a bad note, and now 8 months later both of their careers need a boost. What better way than to have a pretend relationship? The brilliant idea of their agent, these two have the task of going out in public for the first time and showing that new found love you see in the beginning of a relationship. Is it that far off? Will they be able to pretend to fall in love? And how will it all end? Publicity is everything for both of them, TJ needs his writer block lifted and Jude needs to connect with his characters. Their agents have a plan, we just have to see how it all plays out in their real lives! Witty banter, incredible chemistry, enemies to lovers, second chances at love, Blakely pulls out all the stops, keeping me captivated and thrilled with the outcome.

Then Blakely puts together a full cast narration, led by Shane East as Jude and Teddy Hamilton as TJ. Our favorites come in with cameo performances and create a world that is a wonderful escape from our real world! Take TJ and Jude's journey, you are going to love it!

Very happy!

I finished “Hopelessly Bromantic,” on 6/26, and the two days I had to wait for the conclusion, were brutal! I started it as soon as it became available, and only paused when I had to. I’m always a fan of Lauren’s work, and enjoy both Shane and Teddy’s voices, regardless of the characters they take on, but I really enjoyed the chemistry between the two of them together in this duet.
