Blurb: Theo Wallace usually laughs at the horoscopes his mom sends. Still hung up on his ex-girlfriend and practically friendless, this one begs him to reconsider. Because a friendship that stuck, that thrived…
Well, that would be a reason to leave past pains behind and look to the Bright Future.
When his sister Leone challenges him to find her the perfect date for a spring wedding, Theo uses it as a chance to make new friends. Theo’s ex economics tutor and newest roommate Mr Jamie Cooper seems to be a possible and convenient match. Real convenient. Like written in the stars, convenient.
All he has to do is make sure this Jamie is good enough. Could really be the one for her, and the friend for him.
But watch out, Leo, the stars have a surprise in store…
This book had a bit of a slow start but once I got past the first few chapters, man was it good.
Although I must say that Theo was a bit oblivious to Jamie. Most of the time I don’t read the blurb of a book if its an author I know and love so I had no idea what this was about when I started reading it. But I pegged Jamie pretty quick as gay. For Theo not to notice the flirtation and innuendo was a bit naive of him. I did love how he had no idea what his feelings meant though. That part was adorable to witness and experience. And Theo was not afraid to show his feelings to Jamie in public. There was no miscommunication or phobia to get in the way of a great friendship/romance.
The JLM shirt was a nice twist to the story. There were a lot of little moments that I enjoyed having with them. The skating for instance was hawt! And it really showed the reader much Theo cared. Even if he didn’t realize it yet. How could something so simple as cooking a meal for someone become such a pivital part of their story? It just boggles the mind how AS can write it that way.
I must say I loved how Theo and Leones’ sibling relationship was written. Her blindness was a non-issue but it was nice to see the contrasting aspects of their lives together. She was funny, devoted to her family and determined in her chosen career choice. I really liked how close they were and how they fully supported each other even if one of them was wrong. He read to her for book club when the audio book wasn’t available. I was touched by that action on his part for some reason. I’m not sure I would read a whole book aloud to one of my siblings. Man, I may be an asshole…..
Another win for me. I have yet to find one from her that isn’t. And before you get on me for my reading challenge to not start anymore series, I would like to point out that I started this book last year so it doesn’t count. 🙂
I received this book from Netgalley for an honest/unbiased opinion.
