First, a little background on me as a reader. I am a mostly straight female who enjoys reading m/m/f but has never read a full-length novel that's m/m. This was more like a novella at 92 pages. I enjoyed the book because the characters were nice and sympathetic and it's pleasant to read a story where the only conflicts are misunderstandings and insecurities between the main characters. Also, everyone loves a happy ending.

The reason I didn't give it more stars is that it wasn't completely believable. It fell into the trap of most smutty romances where the characters have immediate, intense physical attraction and fall in love with each other a few days after having sex. It seems particularly hard to buy this since Jack has only known he's gay for about a month. I actually know a man in real life who fell in love with his current partner shortly after coming out and they've been together for six years, so this plot point isn't entirely fanciful. I guess what makes it really unbelievable is that these characters hardly know each other. Even though they work at the same company, they're in completely separate departments and haven't spent any time together. However, the author gives reasons for the mens' compatibility and the point of the story is mostly to enjoy watching them find happiness.

I received a complimentary copy of this book in order to review it. ( )

Jack things he likes his co-worker Alex who he things is straight so it doesn't help his confusion. Jack decides that he needs to explore his feelings and begins to step into his new lifestyle. I loved the scene where Jack sees Alex at the club. What follows next will either happen to a HEA or a the biggest blow up in history. Great story of a man coming to terms with his feelings. ( )
