As a professional x-ray tech, Ridley has come a long way from the geeky kid Jace took under his wing in high school. Not that his best friend has noticed. Tired of pining, Ridley decides to show Jace what he’s missing. And what better way than with a newer, more sophisticated look?
Cole's clients at the salon where he works love him dearly. Men? Not so much. He has dated one mistake after the next, and he’s beginning to wonder if a guy exists who can handle his fabulousness. Then Ridley lands in his chair.
Cole agrees to be Ridley’s makeover guru, and they click effortlessly. But when Cole offers to help Ridley with his sexual confidence, passion flares and boundaries blur.
Ridley’s had his heart set on Jace a long time, but when he’s with Cole it feels too real to deny. Now he has a choice to make: the friend he’s always wanted or the man who’s given him a whole new lease on life.
Operation Makeover is a good romance by DJ Jamison that just so happens to contain an important message.
I love the storyline, as Ridley meets Cole while he's trying to get a makeover. Of course, Ridley's getting the makeover to impress his lifelong crush, his best friend, Jace. Instead, Ridley ends up finding himself and his true love.
Despite the storyline seeming to be about improving yourself to impress someone, it actually ends up being a story of finding confidence, self-love, and true love. It is touching and tender the way that Cole helps Ridley to realize his true worth. Ridley's self confidence rises throughout the story, in a realistic way. Essentially it is a beautiful and tender story of finding love and a sense of confidence and security at the same time.
The slow burn romance that develops between the two is super fun. I enjoy the pace of this story, as the relationship between Ridley and Cole changes little by little, ending with them getting their happily ever after.
Overall, I really enjoyed Operation Makeover, and can't wait to see what DJ Jamison creates next.
