Funny and fresh. Warm and fulfilling. Surprisingly sexy.

Dual POV


THE STORY:

A baby changes everything. In this initially light-hearted and humorously written story, a young gay man has to figure out how to bartend, go to beauty school and make sure his daughter has the best possible care.

THE CHARACTERS:

Rue, is a young "club boy" who decides to keep his baby. His decision creates havoc in his already hectic life, but caused me to instantly like him. His humor and outlook made it easy to want more Rue. Just ask Erik. You gotta love a man who thinks:

"Might as well make like Lee and press on."




Erik, oh Erik. Loveable geek, compassionate neighbor and sexually unaware introvert. He drinks Gatorade by the gallon, watches Star Wars to calm himself and needs a hair cut. Oh yeah, that haircut, tummy flips galore.

"Do or do not. There is no try." Only Erik would quote Yoda in bed.

Dusty is Rue's best friend and they are enrolled in cosmetology school together. He's sweet, kind and vulnerable. I'm really hoping for his HEA in the next book. There will be a next one, right?

THE WRITING:

This is a quick witted, solid read with a few minor bumps along the way. I didn't feel that there were any slow parts but some awkward sentences did seem to halt the story a time or two. The author's did an especially noteworthy job at portraying descriptive sex scenes that weren't just about the actions but actually about the sensations involved. If you're one of those girls who want to know what it "feels like" for guys, pick this one up right away.

The author's also wrote terrific, easy to visualize characters that you would want to know in your life. They became endearing and it was a pleasure to watch them figure it all out.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You might find a bit of a love triangle, some building angst and what I hope is a possible cliff-hanger in this book.

Read this book up for descriptive sex, tummy flips and characters that will work their way into your heart.

My sincere thanks to Netgalley.com and Dreamspinner Press for providing an eARC or this delightful story.
