Meeting the family shouldn't be this complicated. As the designated slacker of the family, Peter Stevens was accustomed to being eclipsed by his "perfect" older brother, Mark. But when Mark came out to their parents one Christmas vacation, it was his turn to be the black sheep. Even more surreal was Peter's brief encounter with his brother's boyfriend, Colin. The unmistakable sparks between them shook the foundations of his confirmed heterosexuality. Years later, when they meet again as graduate student and professor, that bone-deep attraction is still there. Thanks to the emotional scars Mark left behind, Colin has had his fill of Stevens men. Having Peter at his university shouldn't be a problem though, as he knows the younger man is straight. But when Colin realizes the electricity sizzles both ways, he can't resist indulging in a passionate affair. Yet some old flames stubbornly refuse to die. This time, Peter refuses to step aside-and when an emergency brings the family together again, Colin must decide if it's worth the risk to trust another Stevens brother with his heart. Warning: This book contains an adorable professor who gets invited home for a very complicated holiday, a perfect relationship with "Mr. Right", and a dangerous crush on "Mr. Wrong".

I really liked Colin and Peter. They were adorable and Peter was just so fun and ea...
Eh. I read it. Nothing really stood out. I didn't really connect with the characters either.
