This story was sweet, fluffy and short.  There really isn’t much to this story.  You have 2 main characters and are plopped in to the middle of their relationship.  Peter and Carver are an unlikely couple in that neither really sees that they are a catch.  One wants to move home, due to family duty and love, without having to give up his love.
While I have to admit that I sided with Peter in the argument, I can understand why Carver posed his issue in the manner he did.  So, even though this book wasn’t really my cup of tea, I can suggest it to others who are looking for a feel good, short sweet story.
FiveStarsMary Calmes did it again. She made another home run, a goal, a touchdown. You get the message. She wrote another amazing story.

I really loved this book. From the very beginning it pulls you in immediately. The first few pages is a dialogue between two people with a third on the side and what they discuss is hilarious. I laughed so hard. Then when I read the next scene that was it. The book had me. I couldn’t put it down.

The two main characters, Pete and Carver, are already partners and their love is evident. They only have eyes for each other and nothing and no one can separate them. The plot line is very sweet and wonderful. Carver taking Pete home to meet his family and his hometown.

The dialogue between Carver and Pete is so funny, but loving at the same time. Their bantering tickles your funny bone and makes you want to read more.

I wish this was not a short story. The story is so great from the first page to the last.

I highly recommend and encourage everyone to get this book. The author has a history of great and amazing books and this one has hilarity to it that just can’t be missed.
