Iโ€™ve always been known as the hopeless romantic โ€ฆ the nice guy โ€ฆ the sweetheart.

Everything in my life supported this persona. My students loved my easy personality. My colleagues admired the way I handled myself in the classroom.

But something was always missing.

Like so many relationships before it, my current attempt at love felt like a dead end. When she gave me an ultimatum, I couldnโ€™t promise to give her what she wanted.

So, she ended it.

Explaining another breakup to my family was the last thing I wanted. But doing it on a luxury yacht at my brotherโ€™s wedding lessened the hardship.

I never imagined that trip would change everything… and I certainly wasnโ€™t prepared for him to change everything.

Upside Down is a sisterโ€™s best friend, sexual awakening, m/m stand-alone romance that contains adult content.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 4 Stars

Upside Down is a standalone in AM Madden’s Breaking The Rules series, but I loved the supporting characters so much that I have put the first two books on my TBR list! The books have interconnected characters, and past events are talked about, but I didn’t feel like I was missing out for not having read them.

Cooper is such a likable character. He is truly at a crossroads in his personal life when he attends his brother’s wedding. Immediately upon seeing his sister’s business partner, Ricky, again, sparks fly and they kind of catch Cooper off-guard. But not really: he experimented a bit in college, and always had difficulty fully committing to a girlfriend to take the next step. Ricky is super sweet and patient and supportive as Cooper grapples with the unexpected feelings and how his life is about to change.

AM Madden did a great job in telling this story. The journey that Cooper goes through in discovering his true identity and then coming out is a wonderful arc, from start to finish, and Ricky’s support meant everything. Ricky truly turns Cooper’s world upside down, but it’s a beautiful story of self-discovery with a lot of heart.

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
