Outcast is the fourth book in The Good Guys series by Jamie Schlosser. I’ve read all four books in the past two weeks so have a real feel for the characters now and how Jamie writes. And I must say, I’m a big fan. What I love about this series from Jamie is that they are different to a lot of the other books in the genre. I read so many bad boy books, drama angst ridden books that its refreshing to read books about, well good guys (And girls)! Outcast features Ezra and Kayla.
So what makes Outcast different from other books? Well the characters of course. Ezra is so sweet and lovely. I know good guys can be boring but I just didn’t feel that way about Ezra. I liked that he was different (His disability), I loved that he can draw (I’m a sucker for an artist), I loved his sensitivity but most of all I loved how he grew in this book and become a better version of himself. Kayla is everything Ezra needs plus she is an amazing character too. I really couldn’t fault her and found her to be a great (Dare I say?) role model in this book. She had so many good qualities I wish more books featured women like her. What made these two characters better is that they felt ‘real’ to me. With Trucker (#1 in The Good Guys series) Angel felt a little unrealistic, her situation and moving forward with the others books although I could relate to all the characters I just feel that Kayla really feels like someone I’d like to know and could meet.
This story of two beautifully souled people is a perfect mix of love, growing and lots of beautiful moments. I still think Dancer is my ultimate favourite but I thoroughly enjoyed Outcast and think those who have read the series (Or those who haven’t, you could easily read this as a stand alone!) will get a lot out of this book. Big thumbs up from me and also on Kindle Unlimited so a free read if you subscribe, 4 stars.
A Good Guys Novel
My infatuation with Ezra Johnson started how all obsessions begin—with a simple crush. Over the years I silently soaked up every shy smile and random act of kindness, wrestling them away to a secret place in my heart meant for unrequited love.
Because if it wasn’t for the fact that I tutor him once a week, I’m pretty sure he wouldn’t even know I exist.
Then I find his sketchbook.
And it changes everything.
There are two certainties in my life: I’ve been in love with Kayla Reynolds since I was fourteen, and I can’t have her.
I’ve spent years settling for a two-dimensional fantasy world, capturing her beauty with a pencil and paper. She’s kind, smart, gorgeous…
And she belongs to someone else.
Or so I thought.
An interesting turn of events makes me realize things aren’t always how they appear on the outside, and now I’ve got my chance to be the man she deserves.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve been called a loser. The cripple. An outcast.
But maybe—just maybe—this time the good guy won’t finish last.
