I received this book from Net Galley in exchange for a review. Based on the cover and the summary of this book, I expected another generic romance book where two people meet, fall in love, fight and then make up and live happily ever after. Instead, I was surprised to read about two guys in their late twenties who met in college and have been inseparable ever since. Oh yeah and they are straight. What follows is the story of their friendship from day one until present day. To me, this book was i [...]

My thanks to NetGalley and The Story Plant for an eARC copy of this book to read and review.DNF at 65%. It wasn't a bad book, it was well written and engaging. I liked the characters, the plot made sense, but I just couldn't connect with the characters and their issues.The narrator is a 20-something white male living the wealthy life of a single ad exec in NYC. Yes, he is dealing with the terminal illness of his best friend, also a single wealthy young white man living the good life in NYC, but [...]

I tried to read this twice and both times made it only partway. I definitely think it was me and not connecting with the characters as much as I had hoped I would as i loved Louis past work. Very well written, just not clicking with me.

I'm not hating on the topic. I just can't honestly say that I liked his book, as the 3-star rating would indicate. Rich and Daz are the cool kids of New York, who have money, fun careers, and lots of expensive toys. And each other. Everything is great until Daz discovers he has cancer and Rich is eaten up with guilt over a potential career leap. This sounds great, but we don't even find out about the cancer until half-way through the book. Everything leading up to it is how much fun they're havi [...]

Rich Flaster and Eric Dazman - otherwise known as Flash and Dazzle - are best friends. They work together at an ad agency and spend most of their free time together, too. Most of their male bonding time is over beer, takeout, video games, sports or movies, but that's pretty normal for guy-time, right? And life would continue in that vein for Flash and Daz, except for a couple of bumps in the road. And one of them is big; insurmountable, even. This book had a slow start and I couldn't get into th [...]

Not the type of book I would normally read, I'm glad I picked up this intense novel about young adult males in the high pressure world of advertising. Two best friends, one terminally ill, face what their friendship has meant to them both. A smart and beautiful sister adds a feminine point of view to this tragic tale. This is an author with heart. I'll try his other books too.

** A copy of Flash and Dazzle was given to me from the publisher and NetGalley for reviewing purposes**I have to admit that I was expecting something entirely different from this book as I find the cover and the synopsis to be slightly misleading when taken together. I thought this was going to be another run of the mill romance , but instead it turned out to be a solid story of friendship, loss and moving on. And thus, I wouldn't say I was disappointed by this book in the slightest. Eric Dazman [...]

Flash and Dazzle are two guys lucky enough to find each other not only as great colleagues but who also become best friends or soul mates who supposedly know each other’s thoughts before they are thought and who bring out the best in each other. Their friendship is uniquely remarkable, but their future is about to become even more so in the most unexpected way possible. Flash is a copywriter and Dazzle is an art director in a small but well-known ad agency. Reading about how they bounce ideas [...]

Flash and Dazzleby Lou AronicaThis book was provided to me free by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.Finish time: 3 nights. And just to toot my own horn (as this probably is not a big deal, but makes me feel cool!), this book isn’t released until November 5th, 2013! I feel so “in-the-know” lately, as I also got to preview THIS AMAZING ALBUM before it was released to the public too!I really enjoyed this author’s writing style. If I wrote a book, I would imagine it would be simila [...]

It's no secret that romance is my genre. Normally, if the plot doesn't revolve around romance, I'm not that big of a fan. So when I was asked to review Flash and Dazzle, I was a bit skeptical. A book about best friends? And not a romance? But I decided to give it a go, and I'm so happy I did!Rich and Daz have been best friends since their Freshman year of college, and have gone through life together as the dynamic duo Flash and Dazzle. Working together in advertising, the guys have fallen into a [...]

Words for describing Flash and Dazzle: a tearjerker, brilliant, heartbreaking, thought provoking, memorable.I will never forget this book!Here's what I thought I was going to read. I thought this book was a man's read. A story about two men and their friendship. I thought I would have to push myself through it. I thought I would maybe be bored and I thought I wouldn't care for it. Could these suspicions have been any further from the truth? I came so close to not responding to the request for a [...]

Dollycas’s ThoughtsA friendship like one “Flash” and “Daz” have is rare. They meet in college and basically inseparable. But they have their secrets. In the course of this story we earn those secrets and so much more.Lou Aronica writes a really good story and has created characters a reader can genuinely care about. It makes me wonder if he had a friendship like this.This book was not exactly what I expected it to be. It took bit a little bit to get into the story but once I did I was [...]

I won this book in the giveaway section on good reads. As a thank you, I am writing this review.I enjoyed the style of writing this book showcased. It was almost like you were sitting in a coffee shop with the two main characters and hearing about their lives and stories from their past. The characters were very relatable and down to earth. The plot is based on a serious topic, brain cancer. However, the book isn't overly sad or depressing instead it focused on the life Daz lived not the one he [...]

I received this book as an ARC. I wasn't sure what to expect-the cover was really misleading. I felt that the story told more about two friends going through the bumps of identity in college and carrying it over to adulthood. When Daz learns that he is the next receipient of a family illness the friendship takes on a different dimension. Flash feels he has been somewhat betrayed by learning that there was so much more to his friend than what he knew. Flash finally learns what true love looks and [...]

I struggled to get into this book. About half way through I got hooked. The ending was awesome! I liked that you sort of know the ending from the start. I think I would have given it four chairs had it grabbed me from the beginning.It was great to read about men's friendships that are so different, yet so similar to female relationships. The characters were well developed and I did care about them.Overall, I did enjoy this book.More reviews at Ope's Opinions

I thoroughly enjoyed this book! The relationship between Flash and Dazzle was incredible. It definitely makes you take a step back and look at the relationships you have with others in another light. This book has a strong message to deliver, and I would recommend this book to all of my friends. This will be a book I'll come back and read again. **received copy in a first reads giveaway**
