On the cusp of his twenty-fifth birthday, Bo Sanford grows frustrated with his directionless life. Slaving away at his father’s construction company all week and partying every weekend leaves him little time for introspection, but he knows it’s time for a change. When his best friend, Mac, drags him to a college party, Bo catches sight of a girl. But not just any girl—the girl of his dreams: a delicate blonde-haired beauty with a pink scarf and a smile that promises warmth and humor. There’s just one problem: she isn’t a girl.

Even after Bo discovers the truth, he keeps seeing Erick, and the choice to follow his heart despite the obstacles has profound repercussions on not only his sense of self but his relationship with his family and even his job. Being with Erick makes him all the more determined to be his own man and claw his way out from under his father’s thumb

But Erick faces choices of his own: the choice to get involved with someone redefining his sexuality, the choice to trust again, and even the choice to believe love can last beyond the temporary.

I had never heard of this book until my GoodReads buddy John recommended it. John has never steered me wrong so I decided to try it. So happy I did! It was such a sweet GFY, opposites attract story.

What I loved:

*The dialogue. It was natural and I loved that they talked to each other. There was no miscommunication between them, no dumb misunderstandings.
*Erick. His perseverance and his insight sold me his character.
*Bo. His willingness to see where things went despite being confused by his attraction to Erick. He was so sweet and gentle.
*As much as I love a steamy read- I was really happy the plot didn’t rely on it.
*The development from friendship to romantic relationship. Such a delicious slow burn.

The only thing I was missing:

*An epilogue. Although the story ends with a HFN, I would’ve loved a look at them well into the future.

I can’t recommend this enough. It’s a great story about family, friendships, and not being afraid of taking chances. It was very romantic. 4.5 Stars ♥
