Urban Sinclair thinks he has it all. An amazing life, a nice house he shares with Tyson, his boyfriend of eight years. Urban learns the hard way that life is full of unexpected surprises and people aren’t always as happy as he thinks. Unexpectedly single and heartbroken, Urban knows he can only take it one day at a time. A daunting endeavor while he still shares a house with the man responsible for shattering his heart.

Before Urban can even begin grieving, let alone moving on, Tyson makes a shocking revelation that spins his world around for an extra loop. Can this new surprise show Urban that life isn’t about endings but about making memories and sharing limitless new beginnings?

Lirtle’s View:

Urban and Tyson have been together eight years, which gives them an advantage in the figuring-things-out-before-they-go-too-far department.

”Will you, Urban Sinclair, go out with me tomorrow?”

“No,” I said firmly. He looked crestfallen, and I quickly added, “What did you expect me to say, Tyson? You said you were going to woo me, and I don’t feel wooed at all.”

See? Problem solved.

Woo. I love that word. And doofus. That’s a great one, too. Doofus. Tyson attempts to do the former while acting like a total of the latter.

There are small issues in structure and a few repetitious words and passages, but they felt minor to me and definitely didn’t greatly impact my giggling and snorting and awwwww’ing and oh yes, so true’ing.

As with any of other of Adams’s stories, there are great one-liners and comedic comebacks. Beyond that, they fit the characters and tell us more about them. It feels natural, not forced. My highlighter saw healthy use with this’n.

We both agreed long ago that we would only ever have a threesome if it were with Gerard [Butler]. That pretty much means we’d never have a threesome, which was more than okay with me. It was nice having that door open in case Gerard ever came knocking.

If I were forced to use only one sentence to describe this story, it would be: A funny, sweet, romantic, and honest portrayal of two happy people in a real and loving relationship.

Thankfully, I don’t have to do that, especially since I have a couple of more things to say, like I enjoyed the hell out of this story.

They work hard at fixing the issues between them.

Oh and, listen, any story that includes toilet seat liners sticking to one’s butt, well, that’s an automatic winner in my own tome.

Oh, one more. This is sexy and yummy, and Urban and Tyson are wonderful characters. They’re people that I know.

Everyone needs some Kyle Adams stories in their lives. 🙂
