The blurb states that “Kyle's hectic work schedule and inexperience with relationships won't make for an easy romance”—and I found that to be very true. At the same time, the narrator’s style is so funny that, on the whole, this made for an extremely entertaining novel. The deeper truth of these two men finding exactly what they want and need in each other made me smile, and the way both characters learn and grow as they “drift” into a relationship without really noticing it at first is very cute. It is also very romantic (without being too sweet) and definitely hot!

Joseph is the narrator of the story, and his somewhat manic thought processes and hilarious comments had me laughing all the way through. He has an opinion about everything, and is very determined to help Kyle become more self-confident. But Joseph also understands why Kyle is hesitant to come out, and never pushes him into a direction he isn’t ready for. Joseph is a pretty unique guy all around—while he sounds totally focused on the physical side of things, he is actually very good at picking up Kyle’s cues regarding everything else as well.

Kyle is a contradiction in terms. Tall, professionally successful, and a great catch due to his friendly and compassionate nature, he was raised by conservative parents in a small town. To get away from the stifling atmosphere he managed to “escape” to New York City, but he hasn’t really had time to focus on anything other than becoming an ER doctor. All that changes when he runs into Joseph, and he begins a journey of discovery that has him experience new things. The scene where he stands up to his mother was amazing and brought tears to my eyes. Go Kyle!

If you like unusual romances, if you enjoy a bit (okay, a lot) of humor in your love stories, and if you’re looking for a read that is as meaningful as it is funny and hot, then you will probably like this novel. I definitely loved it and look forward to reading more from this author.

A quick, sweet read. The first person perspective was humorous and it helped move this story forward.

I really liked the character of Kyle, he was sweet and sheltered. Although to be honest, I really found part of his life rather hard to believe, but heck, this is fiction!

So, if you are looking for sweet and funny story, this is it. ( )

I love a funny book but I think the humour became too much here, turning what should have been emotional high points into sketch comedy. The pet names became too much as well, and the book should have ended at the proposal instead of continuing on to include the mess of a holiday. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

Kyle Miller is a rare breed. Though born to conservative parents and raised in small-town Oklahoma, Kyle realized young that he had to escape rural America. Now he's living in New York City, working as an ER doctor, and paying off his massive student loans. He's never been on a plane and never seen a movie, but he is worldly enough to recognize attraction when it smacks him in the forehead. Not that he knows how he managed to crack heads with Joseph, who's a good foot shorter than Kyle's six and a half feet. Joseph is Kyle's polar opposite in other ways too, well-off where Kyle is poor, and self-assured while Kyle is insecure. He's also determined to show Kyle what a great guy he is and bring the confidence Kyle shows in the ER out in his everyday life. But Kyle's hectic work schedule and inexperience with relationships won't make for an easy romance.… (more)
