From the blurb:
Neither James nor Gabe has ever had a real relationship. They might make a connection if they can get past their differences—and their fears.
At age fourteen, James Maron decided to prove he wasn’t gay despite vast evidence to the contrary. Now at thirty-two, he’s getting ready to send his son to college and wondering what he’s supposed to do next. Outside his son, his life consists of an IT job he hates and watching telenovelas with the women in his apartment building.
Gabriel Juarez is the CFO of a technology giant. He has looks, charm, fantastic wealth, a workaholic personality, and a string of boyfriends who only stick around because he’s too busy to tell them to leave.
A bad laptop/projector interface causes James and Gabe’s paths to cross. Friends, family, and coworkers jump to match Gabe with a nice guy, and James with anyone. But are they too different? Everyone will have to tread very carefully to keep things from ending before they start.
Every once in a while I want to read something low drama. No pain, no angst, just two people meeting, romancing, and falling in love. This fit the bill perfectly.
I want to state for the record that this story is NOT perfect. Some might call it slow (it is a pretty slow-burn romance) and it has a very abrupt cliffhanger ending, but I still found it utterly charming and totally smile-worthy.
I sort of knew I was going to like this when I realized that James was as close to a virgin as you can get, despite fathering a child at 14. He was blushing, inexperienced, and really adorable. I liked the leisurely way that James and Gabriel got to know each other, and I liked the slooow corruption of James. *grins* I'm a dirty girl.
Sometimes I'm not into meddling family members, but I really liked James's son, Dylan. He was supportive and just everything you'd want your son to be. I give Dylan the highest of fives!
Easy to read, nice dialogue... I simply enjoyed this one. Just make sure you are willing to wait in anticipation for the next one before starting!
