Another hot guy from Greenwich Village is about to meet his match. That is, if he doesn’t mess things up…this time.
After the failure of his relationship with Jeremy, Andrew Jamieson threw himself into a routine his high powered job on Wall Street and workouts. After two years, however, he is unable to quell the longing in his heart for that special someone. Feeling hopeless, Andrew resigns himself to life of work and living alone in his pent house apartment. That is, until he’s fixed up with Peter, the local bartender in Jeremy’s favorite watering hole in the East Village. Peter is hot, sweet, sensitive and…masterful. Peter brings out a side of Andrew he never knew he had. And he can’t get enough. However, the same difficulties Andrew had with Jeremy threaten to rear up and ruin his chances with Peter. Will Andrew love Peter enough to let himself have the one guy in the world who could be meant for him?
This is not a series, but it uses characters from Meant for Each Other. I have not read Meant for Each Other, so I can safely say that you can enjoy this book as a standalone. That being said; you do miss some backstory that is alluded to, but not fully disclosed. You also miss the main characters initial meeting, which I would like to have seen.
So what we have is a control freak and an underachiever. Oh and let us not forget the meddling ex-partner and his current partner. The whole setup just seemed a bit forced to me. I mean really? Get out of an eight-year relationship after being CHEATED ON and stay best buds with the ex and the ex’s new partner? I just didn’t buy it, nor did the author sufficiently sell it to me. I am sure for people who read Meant for Each Other it would be nice to see Jeremy and Craig all happy and together two years down the road, but it just made Andrew seem a bit pathetic. For someone who was supposed to be all poised and confident, he just came across as weak and whiney.
As for Peter, I liked him a bit more. He needed some confidence boosting, but he was a solid character and one from whom I would like to have heard more.
If you read and enjoyed Meant for Each Other, you will want to pick up Meant for him. If you haven’t read MfEO but enjoy low angst comfort read with a happily ever after, you will likely enjoy Meant for Him.
