Synopsis: ER doctor Wyatt Jacobs moves to San Francisco to escape the pain of his mother’s death. He doesn’t think he’ll ever feel at home in California, twenty-five hundred miles from his beloved Georgia, but he hasn’t met his handsome but cocky neighbor yet.
Contractor Caleb Gregson is all about one-night stands and keeping his perfect record of satisfied lovers intact. He isn’t prepared for Wyatt, whose resistance to his charms makes him rethink everything he thought he knew about his life.
Caleb starts wooing his reluctant neighbor in hopes of getting Wyatt to sleep with him and restore his perfect record. As time goes on, however, he wants Wyatt to Just Say Yes to an entirely different question.
Impressions: This is a really cute and romantic story. I read it today at the beach, and it was the perfect setting for a great read with two really likable main characters and a sweet love story.
Caleb is sure that no one can resist his charm, and when Wyatt rebuffs him, he decides that he is up for the challenge of winning him over. Wyatt isn't falling for Caleb's attempts at falling into bed- he is looking for something more. As Caleb decides to woo Wyatt, he learns to think about others first- and he gets in touch with his romantic side. With each new romantic endeavor, Caleb begs Wyatt to "just say yes..." Eventually, Caleb realizes that he wants Wyatt to agree to a lot more than just a roll a in the hay. What is really cute is watching Caleb change into someone who realizes that there is more to life than his next conquest.
This story was really cute, and Caleb and Wyatt were very likable and endearing. They navigate love and life together, and I guarantee those who are looking for a sweet and sexy romance will end the story with a smile on their face. There isn't a lot of angst or dramatic plot devices, but thats not what this story is about.
Give Wyatt and Caleb a try, and check out Ms. Pine's work. She is a welcome addition to the MM genre.
