The last in this series follows the love adventure of Mark, the third lawyer in a firm of all gay partners, two of them already paired in the previous books. Mark is the workaholic one, who seems not interested in having a love life. During a B&B at Nathan’s home, one of his business partners, Mark meets Drew, a kind and cute man, who finds the courage to do a move on aloof Mark. Surprisingly, for his friends, but also for Mark himself, he accepts Drew’s invite for a coffee, and they start a tentative relationship, more similar to what you will see between two teenagers, than two adult and independent men.

This is probably the best part of this novella, and all the stories preceding this one, they are uber-romantic stories, but the common leit-motiv is that they are ordinary stories, something that could happen also to you, meeting someone at work, or at a friends gathering. These men are young and handsome, but not “stunningly” handsome, they are more cute, or pretty, or interesting, they are your neighbor, your friend’s friend, your colleague. They come from different family experience, maybe even particular, like Drew who is the result of an artificial insemination, or sad, like Mark who has lost his life-partner to AIDS years ago.

I like this feeling, I like to be able to read of ordinary men and ordinary lives; when you close one of these stories, you are happy and comfortable, you had your dose of sweet and bitter, perfectly balanced, and the feeling is basically of a successful dish.
