First off, I really enjoyed the way this story began. After Elias is rude and dismissive to Ty upon their first meeting, he can’t get the encounter out of his head. So he brings Ty a gift the next day to say sorry. When Ty is less than impressed at his offering Elias stubbornly begins bring Ty something each morning, until Ty accepts his apology. This first part of the story sums up Elias’s character perfectly. He’s a bit of an ass, but is unapologetic when he believes he’s in the right. However, he isn’t too much of an ass to admit when he’s wrong. I guess in that way, Ty is exactly the same as Elias, he’s just way more laid back about life in general. While it seemed, even to me, that these two men shouldn’t have worked together, the author sold me on their relationship.
While the romantic relationship did develop crazy fast, I was happy enough to just go with it. There was basically zero angst to be found here, and very little conflict between Elias and Ty. Most of the conflict was Elias’s internal battle with his plans for his life. Given that the men weren’t fighting over issues constantly, the speed at which their relationship moved wasn’t completely unrealistic. In fact, when the men did have an issue, they discussed it and worked it out. What a novel approach!
Ty’s rather large family and all of their antics provided some needed commotion through out the story. I love it when authors include a rambunctious family somewhere in a story.
This was an enjoyable read. Honestly, I liked it more than I expected. While it isn’t full of drama or action, sometimes you need an amusingly sweet book like this to hit the spot.

Oh man! I really enjoyed this one.
Not only because the characters were lovely (although that's *the* huge plus) or because I was sucked right in due to the charming nature of the development of their relationship (another quite sizeable advantage). It was just... So well done, in general.
It sort of reads like a rom-com, but with a slightly more accentuated focus on the romance part. Plus, the extra of the sexytimes (which, in the mood I am lately, I could have gone with, but I didn't find it as annoying as it could have been, so yay, another plus right here!)
Even though the relationship between Eli and Ty develops at an unorthodox pace, I still wasn't bothered by it, because it was written in a way that made sense, that felt natural and I was really "feeling" it. Plus, how can you complain when the chemistry between the characters was so great? They were amazing together, and I really enjoyed seeing them find their way around their relationship.
As much as I appreciated the lovely bubble that seemed to wrap these two, I also welcomed the pinch of conflict that came to give realism to the situation. That isn't to say that the characters and their stories hadn't felt real or relatable prior to that point, I really do think that the author did a great job with how the story was fleshed out as a whole. The conflict bit was just another of the perks to the building of an already pretty great story. I just wished it had had a more accentuated presence: the situation was brewing slowly throughout the story without never really having a huge impact, and when it finally "blew off", it was quite late in the story so it didn't have much time to properly sit and have a well-developed treatment, so it got solved pretty quick. But it was nothing major: if anything, it caused that the tension of the story was rather minimal, and I was definitely in the mood for that!
I mentioned the characters earlier in the review, and let me just wrap that up by saying that not only I found Eli and Ty completely adorable and relatable (on different levels for each character, but still); I was also charmed off my socks by Ty's family- even his out-of-control, controlling mom! xD the family dynamics (and the way Eli blended into that mix) was thoroughly enjoyable.
All in all, I loved reading this, and getting to know these characters- with something so short, that is a pretty rare thing for me, to get involved so quickly. I'm glad it happened, because this story had lots of things for me to like, and I'm happy it all worked so good!

Insta-Love, so down with it.
Two Capricorn loving men, wheel me in.
Happy ever after. Right down my alley.
Not many people rely on their daily horoscope to base their life on, but some days the horoscope gets it right.
Meet Elias, a businessman who does photography on the side. Due to a co-worker, his daily horoscope has been leading him for months. Then there is Ty, happy in his post as a waste mangagement worker when he crosses path with a fellow Capricornian. Ty was just perfect. He spoke his truths and was so open and fun loving, whereas Elias, due to the cards life dealt him, was closed off and unforgiving.
If things were to go right, they should never have been together. However, Ty was so off from his sign at times it threw Elias for a loop. When these two met it should have been world world war three. But one simple message had Elias going off course and destined for something bigger. Theirs was relationship goals. The fact that they both saw the other reaching for what was necessary, not simply loved held them at bay and until reality slapped them both in the face. Lose a good thing or rely on the stars?
I simple enjoyed these characters and praise the author on her characterizations. It was a joy getting to know Ty's family the Green's. They were humble, accepting and just a pleasure. We need more Ty and Eli in our lives. I dare you to one click.
I voluntarily and honestly reviewed this book without bias or persuasion from the author.
