Marek and Adrian dated in high school, but a bitter breakup led them to choose different paths. Adrian is out and proud while Marek is in the closet. Adrian embraces his eccentricity while Marek clings to a conservative image. And while Marek worked hard to build a successful life and financial stability by climbing the corporate ladder, Adrian threw caution to the wind and has spent the last five years backpacking across the world.

Now Adrian is back in Warsaw, Poland, but while Marek thinks they will have a hookup and have a blast from the past, Adrian is just looking for a place to crash. Worse still, Adrian turns up at Marek’s advertising agency for help with his outrageous new business venture, and if Marek wants to get promoted, he might have to work with the guy who broke his heart.

World of Love: Stories of romance that span every corner of the globe.

This book I would definitely classify as a second chance at love.

Sometimes when you mess up with a person and believe that it is too late to ever fix it even though you think about that person through the years, you actually get a second chance to right the mistakes you made in the past with them to hopefully have a future together.

That is exactly what happened with these two men. Marek was a coward when he was younger and let the one person he was in love with walk away from him. Marek was not as courageous as Adrian was and could not come out like Adrian did when they was young. So this life changing event for Adrian was also life. changing for Marek also because Marek chose to walk away instead of stand by Adrian’s side. So not only did he lose his best friend at the time but he lost his boyfriend and the man he was in love with because of his fear of coming out.

Years later Marek is still in the closet and Adrian is about to walk back into his life once again. Even after all these years Marek is still attracted to Adrian but so much time has passed that things are different between them. The time they spend together and then the venture into the business that Adrian wants to open pushed the two men to spend more time together and leads to feelings coming into play again.

The only problem is Marek is still not willing to come out and Adrien is not willing to hide. So where does this leave them? Can love help to overcome fear or will Marek once again push Adrien away?

This was a great read about getting a second chance and what happens when faced with the same problems all over again. Marek had to decide if he was able to get over his fear or if he would stick with his original decision where Adrian is concerned. K.A. Merikan did a greasy job with being able to portray exactly how both men felt whether they was happy, sad, angry, or just resolved in their feelings. I enjoyed this read. I love reading a book about second chances and this was a good one.

Galley copy of I Love You More Than Pierogi (World of Love #1) provided by Dreamspinner Press in exchange of an honest review.


Hello, I am an avid reader of male/male books. I do not have a favorite genre when it comes to male/male books because I love all of them from romance, dark reads, paranormal, shifter, threesome, whatever I see that catches my eye at the time.

I read books about rock stars, CEOs, military, cops, and just the original plain old good boy types of books.

Basically when it comes to a book, I read whatever I am in the mood for at the time. So my tastes varies from day to day and sometimes even hour to hour.

Please comment! We'd love to hear from you.
