Review: Drip: A Gothic Bromance

34889320 Drip: A Gothic Bromance by Andrew Montlack
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

"A hand wearing a fancy watch parted the office blinds, and J.D. felt nauseous with despair: suddenly he knew—even though he could not explain how—that all of his mojo had been permanently taken away."

J.D. and George: thick as thieves since the fourth grade. J.D., the troublemaker, the stud: the alpha. George, the sidekick, the misfit: the loser. Upon graduating college, J.D. has convinced the only job creator in rusty Middlestop to hire them. BrewCorp, the hot new coffee and retail chain, is offering a vice presidency to the employee with the boldest plan for growth, and J.D. is determined to be the guy. When not sleeping with co-workers, he hatches his pitch for a one-of-a kind data pipeline. He is unbeatable--until George grabs the promotion. Now J.D. wants answers. His quest to find them—and to deal with the monstrous truth—is the subject of indie filmmaker Andrew Montlack's wry debut novel, which features the same biting satire that made his mockumentary, The Devil's Filmmaker, a cult classic.

Ok...I'm not sure how to review this one, so I'll start with my thought process.
When I first started reading this, I admit, I wondered what I had signed up for. This is so completely different from my normal reads, but I'm happy to admit I ended up loving it! It takes a while for the Gothic bit to make sense, but by the second half of the book I was sold! This story is well written, and while I had a love/hate relationship with JD, I ended up really enjoying this read!
