The Fisher Men X-ing Lines (Fisher Men Book II) by Rebel Nicks O’Dey was super steamy read! I would give this book a four out of five stars. I was hooked by the plot and could not wait to dive in. The steam in this book was only rivaled by the back and forth banter. I loved Conner and Rika’s interactions and was pulled in immediately.
The Fisher Men X-ing lines is the second book in the Fisher Men Series by Rebel Nicks O’Dey. The story has a wonderful friends-to-lovers element to the storyline, and a bit of a rom/com feel- but with plenty of suspense, a little mystery, intense chemistry, steamy details, some adventure, hidden agendas, investigations, drama, intrigue, tension, danger, emotion, and romance.
I love how this story/series focuses on an individual brother/couple- but also how there is a bridging story that plays out at the same time. There are so many intricate and interconnected details woven through the storyline- I can really appreciate how much attention to detail, planning, thought, heart, and soul that Ms. Nicks O’Dey has put into her work. Nothing has been left to chance- even the smallest detail seems to play a vital role in the course of the storyline.
This story was so intriguing- and really held its own against the brilliant first book. My level of anticipation was quite high, especially after loving the first book as hard as I did- and I wasn’t sure this could live up to it – but I needn’t have worried, as Ms. Nicks O’Dey certainly delivered everything I could have hoped for, and much more.
Veronica Lang (Rika) is Sam’s best friend (Book #1) and an investigative journalist working on an explosive expose. She has just moved into Connor Fisher’s apartment as his new roommate. This should be an interesting experience, especially since Connor is a well known neat freak, with OCD tendencies, and definite germaphobe. He’s also incredibly good looking and a really nice guy. But Rika is inquisitive, nosey, and lacks boundaries. From the start she starts blurring the lines, pushing his boundaries, and breaking all his rules. And they haven’t even met in person yet. So, what ensues makes for some really fun reading!
As with the first book, I was pulled into the story from the very beginning and couldn’t tear myself away. I was completely immersed in the story- and had to know how what happens. There are so many great characters- and a lot of them are recurring characters- so I really recommend reading the books as part of the series, because each book helps to build a ‘bigger picture’ as well as having many interconnected details and cross-overs of timelines/storylines. Ms. Nicks O’Dey does a brilliant job of weaving this multi-layered storyline- choreographing all the details quite masterfully.
A wonderful addition to the series, and a story/series you won’t want to miss!
Thank you, Rebel Nicks O’Dey!

The Fisher Men Xing Lines is the second book in this series and I highly recommend you read the books in order to get the full story. This book focuses on Connor, one of the four Fisher Men, and Rika, a friend of the family who needs a place to stay. The two end up as unlikely roommates as Connor is a wee bit OCD and has to have everything a certain way and Rika turns his world upside down…all without ever actually meeting him! For an entire year, the two are roommates but their schedules never work out to where they are both home at the same time. They talk and text and get to know each other in an unconventional way. They develop great chemistry and had me in hysterics with their banter back and forth!
There is a lot going on in this series and in this book. There are several story lines that run together and you will find yourself completely in tune with this families emotions. One minute you’ll be laughing out loud, the next minute sobbing uncontrollably. This series is about a unique family unit with a dynamic you don’t see much anymore. Strong young men who have been raised to have the utmost respect for all women and to always help them in any way they can, all while showing their appreciation for them. As you read, you will find out who their parents are and why they raise their children the way they do. It is a gripping tale that will break your heart and put it all back together again. I am absolutely absorbed in this series and can’t wait to see where the author goes next with this story line! I am looking forward to hearing the rest of the Fisher Men’s stories!

The Fisher Men: Xing Lines by author Rebel Nicks O’Dey is the second book in the Fisher Men series, and while it is said to be a standalone it really should be read after The Fisher Men X my Heart.
This book is about Connor and Rika who we met in the first book. Connor is one of the Fisher brothers and Rika is the journalist friend of Samantha. The main characters are roommates that have yet to meet in person but this makes for interesting reading. If the story would have continued in this vein, I would have given 5 stars. But there was another story, within the story, and that left me feeling lost. At one point I began thinking I was missing something and had to look at the author’s backlist. Here I found another series with information that I missed. I think I need to read that series before I go on to the rest of the Fisher men books. I think, at times, the author threw out too much information, confusing the reader. The She thread is extremely interesting but really garbled the story lines but that’s just my opinion as a reader.
There were a lot of twists and turns in this story some of which probably weren’t necessary but all in all this was an enjoyable read.
The Fisher Men X-ing Lines (Fisher Men Book II) by Rebel Nicks O’Dey was a hooking read that had me flipping the pages.
The second book in the steamy series, I was taken in right away. I loved the was the book was constructed, it was original, intriguing and it has this edge to it that just kept you engaged. It was that waiting for them to meet, to know if that spark, that connection was real, or just something they played up in their heads. I loved both MC’s, they were well written and well developed. The way they played off one another was magical, fun and just pure entertainment. I loved it, and frankly I didn’t want it to end. I could feel the chemistry through the pages, and that kind of talent is rare.
Overall this book is more than worth your time and energy, it’s a must read like no other and I can almost guarantee that you will not be able to put this fresh original read down. So yes, this book gets my super high recommendation and my golden stamp of approval.

The Fisher Men X-ing Lines (Fisher Men Book II) by Rebel Nicks O’Dey is a Romantic Comedy that I loved reading and found myself unable to put it down till I finished. I do highly recommend reading the first Book as it gives you a better understanding of what is happening as this book follows right along with the first . I loved the characters bantering back and forth. They definitely have chemistry. Find out what happens next in this must read Book.
The Fisher Men X-ing Lines (Book#2) by Rebel Nicks O’Dey was an interesting book that grabbed me from the beginning and I couldn’t get enough. I loved this book as much as I loved the first one. Rebel has an uncanny ability to tell a story and suck you in. I loved the two main characters so much! It’s full of comedy and romance and fun! 5 star rating!
The Fisher Men X-ing Lines is the second book in the Fisher Men series by Rebel Nicks O’Dey. Oh my goodness I loved this book. I really had a hard time putting it down and can guarantee I lost sleep just so I could keep reading it.
As much as I loved Xander and Sam’s story I think I loved Connor and Rika’s book more. Don’t know if it was because I know who everyone is and book two was like meeting up with friends I hadn’t seen in a while, if it was the story itself or a combination of the two. It’s not really important but I’m curious.
I love this series and I hate the fact that I have to wait a while to see which one of the Fisher men falls next. This is an absolute must read series.
The FIsher Men X-ing Lines was a good 4 star read.
This is Connor and Rika’s story, they have an interesting relationship. These two actually share an apartment but only communicate via text, their chemistry was undeniable. This went on for about a year. Rika is also a writer and is currently working on a book.
Will these two still have the same connection once they meet in person?
All of the secondary characters added a great element to the story. Nonna was a favorite of mine that had me LOL at times. Rebel Nick’s O’Dey does a great job of pulling you in with her writing. Overall I enjoyed this read and I look forward to reading more from this author. You can read this as a stand alone, however I highly suggest reading book one first.
The Fisher Men Xing Lines: (Standalone Romantic Comedy: A hot new twist on the odd couple) by Rebel Nicks O’Dey has become my new favourite series so far. I love the Fisher men and what they stand for and how they were raised. They all have their unique quirks and it is a pleasure to read their stories. Rebel has done a great job making the characters perfectly flawed and I just love the concept and storyline. Her writing has almost a soothing affect even with all the ups and downs and heart wrenching scenes that occur.
Rika needs a place to stay and has landed with a roommate who is hardly ever there. They develop a friendship but have never actually met in the year she has been there. When they do meet sparks ignite and opposites attract. I love the friendship and banter they share and the other brothers and Sam, they often have me laughing out loud and certainly enjoying going on this journey with them.
Connor likes everything just so, so when he does a favour for his best friend his world is turned upside down. After what seems like a life time he finally meets the one thing that turned his life on its axis and discovers he wants so much more.
If you don’t get into this series asap you will kick yourself when you do.
