Landon really likes Bailey but he's not sure they can be together after a make-out session triggers a panic attack. I loved that Bailey sticks by Landon and supports him through his struggles even when Landon doubts himself. I also appreciated that Albert didn't magically cure Landon of his problems just because he's fallen in love. It made the efforts they're both putting into the relationship more real and meaningful.
It felt, when reading it, that I was only skimming a book. There's no depth, no development, and no wrap-up. Just, "Oh we're good, let's move in together".
I really felt like it was a waste of my time.
This is a short, maybe novella? I don't know, but fewer than 200 pages for sure. It was part of an anthology that is now being released alone. And although it is part of the Gaymers series, there is little reference to the other books and is an easy stand alone read.
Landon is a science geek (by profession and hobby) and pretty unaware of how good looking he is. Bailey is a photographer and gamer, well aware of how not perfect he is. And they are totally adorable together.
There is a bit of angst- past trauma on the part of Landon, and although it is part of the story and what makes Landon the man he is today, it isn't overwhelmingly angsty. There is quite a bit of humor, romance and hotness. So don't be turned away by the bit of angst there is.
Definitely a fun, fairly quick read. If you've never read one of Annabeth Albert's books, this would be a good start. She creates characters that just nestle into your heart.
Sometimes is as simple as that. Other times it's not. Landon has a heap of baggage keeping him from moving forward with Bailey. Well, with anyone really. When his assumptions about who Bailey is are proven false he's immediately on the defensive. But it's not really because he's disappointed or upset, it's more because his body and head are now at war. His baggage is what he has to battle to give in to the promise of love with a good man.
Bailey is eager to meet Landon. In getting to know one another through emails he's more than just attracted to him. Their first meeting is a bit of a struggle. Posing nude for a calendar and realizing that the man you're crushing on was expecting a woman...not exactly a recipe for a successful relationship. But if he's patient, he just might find the love of a lifetime.
They both have what the other person needs. I loved Landon's bumbling apology and explanation of why he did what he did as well as why they could and should be together. He used both geek-speak and heartfelt explanations to describe all the why's. Seeing his heart laid bare after seeing just how amazing their chemistry is you can't not root for them.
The evolution of the relationship played out well in the length of the story with most of the exposition being adequately covered and were well-placed and concisely described. Both men were likable and together they were both sweetly-awkward and passionate. I loved that there wasn't a "magically cured" moment, it was a much more real, accessible, and believable story because of the lack of one. This was a short story so there isn't a lot of drawn out angsting or reconciliation but it's no less moving than if it had had another 20,000 words or more. Absolutely enjoyable.
