Mason Leery is a bookworm and he thinks he might just be able to get through life simply by reading about it instead of living it.
Until he meets Shane Beaumont. Shane is the opposite of Mason in every way, he’s beautiful, athletic, and lives his life to the fullest.
Sparks fly when the polar opposites come together, but it will be up to the bookworm to shut down his e-reader and go after the beauty if he wants to love someone outside the pages of a book.
An utterly joyful and entertaining story!
Mason is a librarian who loves his job (since he loves to read), wears cardigans and actually thinks they are sexy. He lives with his dirty-mouthed lesbian grandmother, and has a similarly outspoken best friend, Twyla.
“Cardigans can be very sexy.”
“Really? Go into the bathroom, stare into the mirror, then come back out here and tell me if you’d fuck yourself.”
Shane is not only beautiful, but he is a complete sport and fitness junkie with a health-food obsession and a rocking body. Mason never thinks he has a chance with such a hot guy, but despite their differences, or maybe because of them, Shane finds everything sexy about Mason. Insomuch that he even develops a bookworm related kink…
The romance is uncomplicated and lovely, the erotica is fine, the main and the secondary characters are well-drawn. But the best about this story is the humor. The dialogues and the situations are hilarious and amusing.
“What’s your poison?”
“Rum and coke.”
Mona Lisa frowned. “You know we don’t serve alcohol.” She said alcohol the way sane people say shit right after they’ve stepped in it.
“Okay,” I said with defeat, “what do you suggest?”
“I can whip you up a wheatgrass-pineapple smoothie.”
Sounds revolting. “Okay.”
“You’ll love it. It’ll really improve the taste of your semen.”
“Make it a double.”
A highly recommended, sweet and fun romance!
