This is another author that has been on my radar for a long time but never read. And I have to admit I just loved these characters so much after I finished this 240 page book I jumped right into the second one, which can be read as standalone but reading in order will help with the overall enjoyment.

 

These two MC’s couldn’t be more different but charmingly they fit together from Luke’s first knock on Michael’s door. The way Luke is trying to get his life back together, overcoming his anxiety and pushing his way into Michael’s life knowing that this job is he’s one break he needs.  And Michael, frustrated over his injury, his ex and his life in general. Finds that Luke and the remodel is the distraction he needs after all. I just loved the easy banter between these two as well as Luke and his BFF. They way we built up a friendship, even though Luke knew that he was kidding himself the whole time. The overall descriptions’, not only of the views but all the little details, adds to a great read. The only thing that aggravated me was the fact that Luke wasn’t more sympatric towards Michael’s situation. The way Luke and he’s BFF had been treated in their younger days, he should have really understood.

This is book two in the Right and Wrong Stories and can be read as standalone; however I would read in order to completely enjoy the story.

He’s blaming it on the spring weather in So. California but knows that not the case.   Then out of nowhere his high school love and heartbreak shows up!
