I enjoyed the story of Rufus "Rue" Murray, a single gay man trying to pay his way through cosmetology school by bartending at the local gay club. In a moment of self reflection and doubt he slept with a woman, only to find she is pregnant. She offers him a chance at fatherhood, something he never thought or knew he would want. Knowing he'll need all the help he can get he turns to Dusty, his best friend.
Alice is a sweet surprise in his hectic life. When he realizes taking care of a daughter is so much more work than he thought he briefly considers giving her up but he loves her too much. Rue hasn't prepared his home, considered sitters or day care, or any of the other practicalities.
After visiting several day cares he decides to try his reclusive neighbor. Erik Van Nuys is a virtual shut in. He has all his groceries delivered to his door. He panics at the thought of speaking to anyone and never leaves his apartment. When Rue asks him to babysit a newborn girl he panics but eventually relents as his dwindling income forces his hand.
Erik leans how to care for Alice and falls not only for her but her dad. He is surprised and doesn't know what to do, he's never felt any kind of sexual attraction to males or females. After being told by his agent that the publishers want gay erotica instead of science fiction he delves into what he calls research. Reading gay romance and studying the logistics of gay sex. His feelings for Rue become more pronounced the more he learns.
Both men try to deny what they feel, both afraid of ruining their friendship and hurting Alice in the process. But, as is often the case, jealousy shows the situation in a new light. After a misunderstanding involving Rue's best friend, Dusty, they come together and share their feelings.
When Rue gets the opportunity of a lifetime he has to decide between his life long dream and Erik.
There will be another book in this series, focusing on Dusty.
So take two mismatched neighbors, add one BFF and a baby and you have a pleasant read. There is angst, more than once, but the angst resolves and an HEA prevails that I heartily approved of.
I snagged this read directly from the publisher on a one day .99 deal. I'm glad I did. I very much enjoyed it.
I snagged this read for .99, on sale direct from the publisher. I'm glad I did. I totally enjoyed it.
It's sweet and cute and I liked how Erik and Rue worked together. The characters were decently developed and the writing flowed well enough.
I do want to read the next one in the series, so that says something, right?
The growth of both men throughout the book is delightful and I enjoyed watching them nurture and love Alice. This is a happy baby-daddy book, and if that is a genre you enjoy, as I do, I recommend ONE SMALL THING to you.
