Jude is abso-freaking-lutely adorable....I loved this book! It had me wanting to move to their town and be part of their inner circle. ... I really loved the humor. I was smiling and laughing the entire time I was reading. I definitely recommend it - Andrea at Reviews by Jessewave
Incorporating strong secondary characters, Merrow's comedic tale offers the inevitable tropes of younger/older men who are in/out of the closet but in dynamically humorous ways. Instead of bogging down the narrative, these typical issues are turned inside out by Jude's cheeky outlook on life and his poetry - Kristi Chadwick, Library Journal Reviews
Witty sarcasm coupled with a sweet romance made for a story that's hard to put down! The story is told from Jude's POV, and he is one of the most sarcastic and funny characters I have ever read ... I'm really looking forward to reading this book again! - KindleRomance, The Romance Reviews
this book... just cracked me up. Like laugh out loud in inappropriate places funny...I just adored Jude and the whole host of side characters. The story is light and fun and sweet and a bit crazy- Jay at Joyfully Jay
this is an awesomely funny, entertaining yet actually very meaningful story... All the funny and sometimes touching poetry in this story just adds that little something extra that takes a book from good to really good! - Mandy, Hearts on Fire Reviews
it's to the author's credit that this crazy quilt of plot points winds up so neatly. Secrets and confessions fall out of the closet like improperly stored skeletons, and it all winds up as a big AW! in several directions... Cryselle, Reading Reality
Of this author's many talents, I think she does dialog best of all, and she is at the top of her game with this comic gem of a novel... This is more than just an excellent romantic comedy. It is a book about friendships and family and may have you laughing out loud. Highly recommended - Val Kovalin, ARe Newsletter 10 December 2013.
