The moment naïve, optimistic Jonathan Doyle glimpses a gorgeous blue-eyed stranger from afar, he believes in love at first sight. Unfortunately, he loses sight of the man before they meet and then spends years desperately trying to find him. Just as he is about to give up, Jonathan gets a break and finally encounters David Miller face to face.
Successful, confident David turns Jonathan’s previously lonely life into a fairy tale, giving him more than he ever imagined. But the years spent searching were hard on Jonathan, and he’s terrified his young son and scandalous past will destroy his blossoming relationship. For David and Jonathan to build a future together, they’ll both have to dig deep: David for the courage to share himself in a way he’s never considered and Jonathan for the strength to tell the truth.
Jonathan Doyle isn’t the brightest bulb. He’s a simple man who doesn’t really have any ambitions, other than to meet the man with the navy blue eyes that he sees behind the glass at a hospital in New York one day. The man disappears before Jonathan can meet him, but for Jonathan it was love at first sight.
Years later Jonathan finally meets Realtor David Miller, the man with the navy blue eyes, with whom he fell in love with years ago. David is everything Jonathan ever hoped he would be and David, of course, falls fast for Jonathan as well. The two fit together like perfect puzzle pieces.
Jonathan and David are so sweet together. David adores Jonathan and his son, Sam, and Jonathan worships the ground David walks on. The story is sweet, funny, hot and filled with romantic moments.
The first couple of times I read this, Jonathan’s naïveté and dimness didn’t really resonate with me. But every time I revisit this heartwarming story his character becomes more endearing to me.
I feel like I should note that the level of attraction directly lessens the level of creepy in any situation. David’s almost stalker-like behavior, the possessiveness, buying Jonathan a phone, etc. is considered super romantic here because Jonathan already loves David so much! Otherwise, it would be hella creepy.
I love Alexander Collins’ narration of this series. He does a great job with the narration making Jonathan’s naïveté sweet and David’s possessiveness super hot. I really enjoyed the pacing and his character voices. This love at first sight romance has great narration, likable characters, hot sex, humor, and lots of wonderful feels.
