Genre: LGBTQ+ Contemporary Romance

Simon has been away from his hometown for 12 years since a youthful prank got him kicked out of school, his home, and his best friend’s life. Now, his work on the hit TV show Mystics has brought him back to Snoqualmie and face-to-face with his past.

Mallory is a corporate lawyer who just wants to be accepted for who she is, and Simon was the one person who always seemed able to do that until he left town, and her, behind. Determined to fix things between them by any means, she vows to joke, cajole, and otherwise pester Simon into getting things back the way they were.

But what if the way things were is different than the way she remembered? And what if they both learn that, while they still are the best of friends, they were always meant to be so much more?

My Review

Ms. Behave was a quick and easy read and I breezed through it but I can’t say that it made much of an impression. I enjoyed this while reading it but it doesn’t stand out for me. We’ve known about Simon avoiding the town for a few books but now we finally learn why. Simon and Mallory jump back into their friendship with the ease of true friends and it was really sweet. They each understand the other in unique ways and they’ve missed that connection. But things get truly complicated when it turns out that while Mallory only dated girls in high school, she’s since realized that she’s actually bisexual and Simon is conflicted over what to do with this information.

Overall, this was a cute read with likable characters. Simon is a charmer hiding loneliness under an easy going smile and it takes Mallory’s particular brand of fun and adventure to remind him what he loves about life. For her part, Mallory is satisfied with life but she’s always felt like something was missing. I liked these two together because they had a lot of history and that really comes through in the story. 

3 stars – it was good
