Sam’s a new man. Yes, he’s still too tall, too skinny, too dorky, too gay, and has that unfortunate addiction to romance novels, but he’s wised up. His One True Love is certainly still out there, but he knows now that real life is nothing like fiction. He’s cultivated the necessary fortitude to say “no” to the next Mr. Wrong, no matter how hot, exciting, and/or erotic-novel-worthy he may be.Until he meets Ian.Ian’s a new man. He’s pain-free, has escaped the job he hated and the family who stifled him, and is now—possibly—ready to dip his toe into the sea of relationships. He’s going to be cautious, though, maybe start with someone who knows the score and isn’t looking for anything too complicated. Someone with experience and simple needs that largely revolve around the bedroom.Until he meets Sam.Sam’s convinced that Ian is no one’s Mr. Right. Ian’s sure that Sam isn’t his type. They can’t both be wrong...can they?

Hmmmm......well. It was all right. Standard MM fluff with awkward hero(ine) and rugged muscular love interest. I found this title on "The Best Humorous Gay Romances" list but it wasn't particularly funny. I don't think I laughed once. Book did not meet my expectations.
It's actually more of a 3.5 to be honest.I really did like this, it was sweet and funny and a little bit sexy. I went from a book where all the sex was off page to a book where most of the book was smexy time. This was a good thing. What was not so good was some of the smexy time didn't seem like it...
