Publisher's Summary

Jude:

What do you do when you wake up with a hangover and find yourself in bed with your best friend's younger brother? 

Who happens to be your new brother-in-law? 

The man who drives you crazy.

The man who always skated by on fast-talk, good looks, and a bright smile. 

The one who makes you want to break all the rules. 

You hire him as your assistant, of course. 

And pray you can keep your sanity.

And your hands off him.

Mason:

How do you prove you've changed?

That you're no longer the party boy who always needed rescuing from his own mistakes - and boy you've made some big ones.

But no one needs to know your secrets.

You take a job with the one man who doesn't trust you.

Who's waiting for you to screw up.

You try and forget that one explosive night together.

Except you can't.

And to your shock...neither can he.

What do you do when the one man you can't imagine living with is the one you can't live without?

Enjoyable story made even better!

This one hits all my favorite themes, with opposites attract characters, best friend's brother, secret crush! So many good things wrapped up in one story. I had fun watching Mason and Jude come together and I loved watching them grow together. The dialogue and banter was great and we got well-drawn secondary characters too. I'll be reading this one, just to make me smile. The narration adds to the story and I think it is well worth a credit.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Ok, so...wow. This book is now one of my top favorites of the year. I don’t even need to think about it. It captured my attention from the moment I began, and I’m actually a little sad it’s over. I’m going to have to have a cleanser before I’m able to commit my mind and heart to another book. I most definitely have all the symptoms of a common book hangover. 👨🏼‍🤝‍👨🏻 👨🏼‍🤝‍👨🏻

I love a grumpy character—love, love, LOVE them. Jude, Mr. Uptight, himself, was definitely grumpy. He probably didn’t even realize it. He is so absorbed with being the caretaker and provider to his sister, that he promised his dying mom he would be. I somehow think his mom didn’t mean for him to take it so literally, but here we are. He’s made it his life mission, at the cost of his own happiness. That broke my heart for him. It was obvious that, while he was loudly uptight and grumpy, he was quietly a mix Prince Charming and Mother Teresa. I wanted him to embrace his own well-being so badly. 👨🏼‍🤝‍👨🏻 👨🏼‍🤝‍👨🏻

Mason is the sunshine to Jude’s grumpy demeanor. Mason has his own demons to fight, in the form of past Mason. He wants so badly to prove he’s more than the f*** up he’s remembered as. My heart ached for him, too, because, despite his mistakes, he wasn’t a bad seed or person. He was more than his past, and he was such a beautiful person, inside and out. He has so much to give, and is finally ready to settle down, back home, near his family. No matter how hard he tries to move on, parts of his past come back and he’s faced with everything he feared. 👨🏼‍🤝‍👨🏻 👨🏼‍🤝‍👨🏻

This book was highly addicting and very engaging. I switched back and forth between listening to the audiobook (brought to life by the amazing narrator, Kale Williams, who did the characters, emotions, and story justice with his narration) and reading the ebook format. This story was very well written with incredible depth and realism to its characters. I loved the flow and build of their relationship. Seeing how it starts the morning after a wild night together, you couldn’t call this a slow burn, but the build-up for future sexy times was perfectly done and felt true to their situation. I enjoyed their banter, even when they butted heads. I loved how they both had something that brought out the best in the other. I just love this entire book. Whether you read the book or listen to the audiobook, this is a book you need to add to your collection. Not only will it leave you with a smile on your face, but it will also leave you feeling hopeful and with a full heart.

There’s a new man in lots of us !

Good story about how each of two men can grow when each either allows or helps the other one do it. Great self-recognition, too. Perfect reader, as well.

My New Favorite

I read Mr. Uptight a while ago and dying to listen to Kale Williams narrated it. And he didn't disappointed me! I always love Kale's voice, so soothing and beautiful.

I won't bother you with the plot , because you have to experience the beauty if Felice's writing and the gorgeous voice of Kale!
I highly recommend this audio to listen to.

Cannot wait for the next stories in the future!

Fantastic!

I loved Jude and Mason! So much so I was eagerly awaiting the audio by the time I finished reading the book! Kale Williams did an amazing job bringing Felice’s characters to life for me. I was immediately drawn into the story, and he did a wonderful job portraying Jude and Mason’s emotions throughout! I had such a smile on my face while I listened! I loved Jude’s grumpy, reserved attitude and Mason’s contrasting sunny, fun disposition. These two were unlikely matches, but their past and now familial situation put them front and center in each other’s lives again. I loved the sexual tension these two brought out in each other. Especially as Jude tried to forget his crazy night with Mason at every turn. When these two finally let their guards fall, their chemistry was hot. These two completed each other in ways that no one else could have. I loved seeing Jude’s walls come tumbling down and his insecurities start to be soothed from Mason’s love for him. Jude was the missing piece for Mason to truly start the next chapter in his life. I was so invested in these two finding their happiness with each other! I wanted to race to the finish to see how these two worked it all out, but I didn’t want their wonderful story to end either! One of the (many) reasons I continue to read this author is because she writes characters with such staying power. This was a fantastic listen!

Felice Stevens and Kale Williams are a Dream Team

Mr. Uptight is a stand-alone, MM romance featuring great characters and wonderfully snarky dialogue. Jude Staubman is very serious and structured. He doesn’t know how to let himself be any other way. But underneath his uptight exterior is a tenderhearted man who takes on responsibility for others. Although they start out as adversaries, Mason Reiner is his perfect match (despite Jude’s reservations). Mason shows Jude how to let go and have a bit of fun. And their chemistry is smoking! There’s also much sweetness and romance between these two. They each complement the other’s personality and bring out the best in one another. Felice Stevens has another hit with this book.

Kale Williams does a terrific job narrating this book. He’s quickly become one of my favorite narrators because he’s so entertaining. I love the way he portrays the characters’ emotions and moods. His narration pulls you in and and makes you feel like the story is happening around you.

Contempt to Love of your life?

Just had a very hard time buying into the characters. Just did not work for me. I personally have never had a lack of respect or contemptible feelings for~ ever into someone I could love. then again as I said just my humble opinion
