A new person will enter your life in the early year, Leo. Look past any moments of frustration they might bring and laugh—this could be the start of a thriving friendship.
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…
Where To Buy:
I adored this story. Theo was fabulous and the way he and Jamie grew together over the course of the book had me swooning the whole time I was reading. The emotions brought out had me feeling so much with the characters. Plus the cast of characters within the whole story were such wonderful additions and made the story come alive so much more.
Theo was a sweetheart. He was a little bit snarky, a little bit awkward, a little bit outgoing, a little bit of a romantic, and a whole lot of a guy I’d want to call a friend. The way he was adorably clueless to Jamie through most of the book had me smiling through so many chapters. I couldn’t help but love the guy as my heart pounded when he figured out Jamie and then figured out his own feelings towards the end. His little daily quotes and subtle push backs to needle Jamie were wonderful personality quirks. Theo just plain came alive as I read and I didn’t want to stop.
Jamie was transparent to me from the beginning but you could tell he was trying not to be. Only getting to see him through Theo’s eyes made for an interesting perspective that just plain works here. It’s like another level of teasing. But the way Theo gets to know Jamie and their friendship grows, you get all of that with him. I adored the way Jamie took care of “the Leos” right from the beginning. He wanted both Theo and Leone to be the best they could be and I loved watching it on page in all the little ways he did that. My heart hurt for Jamie a little bit when Theo was at the height of his cluelessness. But oh the joy by the end was all sorts of happy for me.
These two are so solidly in love it pours out of the page as you read. I really enjoyed their happy ending. It’s so very sweet and you can tell they’re going to make it long term. I would gladly read more of these two and their friends and family. But there’s not any story left that needs telling for Jamie and Theo. Though maybe a short little scene with those one-to-four rugrats would definitely be welcome and I would gladly read it should a thing like that ever exist.

A born and raised New Zealander from Wellington, I’ve been exploring the literary world since I started reading Roald Dahl as a kid. Stories have been piling up in my head ever since. Fast forward to my mid-twenties and jump a few countries (Germany, America, and back again), I started to put them to paper.
My genre of choice is romance, both adult and YA, gay and straight. You can take a closer look at my books, available as e-books for download in many formats!
When I’m not pushing my characters deeper into adventure, I chase my sons around the house and fight my two comical cats for the desk chair.
