DJ Jamison has written another wonderful story that tugged on all of my emotions. Aidan has a lot of quirks, and has trouble dealing with people. He's not autistic but he's on the bordering edge of the spectrum. He's pretty plain speaking and doesn't really know when he's been rude. Numbers mean so much to him and he's kind of obsessed with baseball statistics.
Jesse is an artist but he doesn't worry about making a living with his art. He prefers not being tied down and works as a bartender to pay the bills. He noticed Aidan at a baseball game and tried to talk to him but was just blown off. When he backs into Aidan's car in the parking lot after a ballgame he can't believe it's the same guy he tried to talk to before.
I couldn't wait to finish this book and at the same time I didn't want it to end. The misunderstandings and miscommunication between Aidan and Jesse made me hurt for them. They both have things they need to work through and DJ's writing of their journey was inspiring. Reading about characters like Aidan has made me a more understanding person when I encounter someone who seems a bit different.
I pity the people who write off the romance genre as just trivial stories. I've gained quite a lot of enlightenment about people who might be considered "different" and stories like this one have helped me to become a better person.
I'm so glad that I was asked to be a beta-reader for this story.
An advanced copy of this book was provided to me but my review was voluntary and not influenced by the author.

There is much more to Jesse than initially portrayed. His motto of one and done protected him from being left again and allowed him to control the situation. Yes, he is an artist but even this must be on his own terms. Jesse's devotion to his grandfather was undisputed and a key measure of his character.
Learning to communicate was not in the plan for Aiden but perhaps he used his "It's how I am" excuse a bit too much. The question is, did he want to change. Aiden's life is structured and living with his mother is very safe. Safe but boring and lonely.
I really enjoyed watching Aiden's developed awareness of how his behavior affected Jesse as well as his interpretation of Jesse's expressions and actions. Well Done! This is definitely one to recommend to your friends!
We're all different and there's someone out there that'll like us for being just us.
I'm glad for Aidan that one was Jesse cause I couldn't see past the annoying and into the cute in him ^^
On a personal note, I have to say that the author truly gives the parent of a child like Aidan (minus the stats thing but has their own "thing") a peace that is hard to find when looking at the future. When your child has these quirks, there is always a part of you that fears they will not find someone to fit them. So thank you for giving a parent a little hope.
