Jacob Timber is hopelessly crushing on very private radio personality Ethan Moore—host of the most famous Indie music radio show on London’s 113.9, the Jukebox Hour—but being in love with a voice isn’t much different than being alone. Jacob’s not even sure the man is gay.
Jacob is so infatuated that all he wants for his birthday is to meet his crush in person—and he gets his wish. With Ethan and Jacob, it’s love at first sight.
But do dreams really come true? Despite how he feels in Ethan’s arms, Jacob doubts it. He knows he’ll never be happy with a man who pretends to love him, only to bring his true girlfriend to public events.
So I read this book over the weekend – it was m/m (obviously) BUT it was a just a little bit different and a whole lotta good!
There were no cops or FBI agents with guns; nobody was in the closet, although it did deal with the difficulty of being openly gay while in the public arena; the MC’s were neither twinks nor Alpha hotties, just 2 average guys AND it had the “dreaded misunderstanding”!! So, not the normal tropes or characters that I like or expect in the m/m stories I enjoy, and yet I loved it!!
Imagine meeting your idol, the guy who plays the leading role in every one of your fantasies. Jacob is an American living in London, and no – there were no werewolves involved in this book 😛 What there is, is a radio DJ with a voice that does serious things to Jacob’s libido! Good things! On his birthday Jacob gets his wish when he meets the guy of his dreams, radio presenter, Ethan Moore. But can reality ever match up to fantasy? It damn near does for this cute couple, annnnnd …. cue the misunderstanding 😉 .
I really liked the way the story was written. It is from Jacob’s POV throughout, with the angsty bits in the middle being handled as a “flashback-wrap-up”, almost like ripping off a band-aid! That may not make sense here, but it worked well in the book, resulting in a book that read like a sweet fluffy romance! We all need sweet, fluffy romance reads once in a while, right?
It was the perfect read for me on a cold, wet, wintery day – a wonderfully warm and fuzzy, feel-good kind of book. Go. Buy the Book!
