I know Like Coffee and Doughnuts is categorized as an m/m romance, but it's so much more than that. There's a solid plot that has very little to do with the sexual identity of the two main characters, Dino and Seth, and plenty of action to keep the story going between steamy scenes. Unlike the typical "romance" novel, you never get the idea that the author is just filling space until she can get them back into bed, and the plot isn't dependent on their being gay.

Best of all, Seth isn't a romantic guy. An adventurous bi-sexual, he's loud, crass and frequently unwashed, but always up for a good time. His best friend Dino is an upper-class PI, well dressed, old-fashioned and irredeemably straight. Or so he thinks. But when he draws Seth into a simple case that gets complicated in a hurry, he starts to question how deep his devotion to his friend really runs.

More things to convince you that it's the best book ever: While Seth is nurturing a real interest in Dino, he never lapses into the kind of teenage girl angst that so often runs through m/m novels. These men are men, not girls, not caricatures of men, not even what women secretly (or not so secretly) want men to be. They're simply real and it really works. The build up to the romance part is sweet and lengthy but never dull, and it's totally believable. Again, the author isn't just stretching it out to fill pages. Dino's journey to self-discovery (and Seth-discovery) is honest and true. Their friendship alone would be enough to make a great story, and the careful evolution into a sexual relationship seems natural and unforced. They even manage to dance together like two guys hanging out.

Basically, what we have here is the book that every m/m fan wants to read and every writer will wish s/he'd written. I know I do.

I loved the retro feel to this book. How old-fashioned Dino was and his attachment to the social mores of a world gone by. I, also, loved how the relationship between him and Seth gradually deepened and only slowly did they become sexually involved with each other. There was a lot of depth to it; not just the usual -- meet, heat, hump, and marry.

I really enjoyed getting to know Dino and Seth, who start out as friends and find their relationship progressing to lovers. They are a perfect match in so many ways, Dino the more pragmatic and solid, Seth more carefree; and it was fun to follow along as they become closer. Elle Parker does not skimp on storyline either, as the mystery Dino (and Seth) find themselves in holds the readers interest. All of the characters are fun and engaging, highly recommended!
