    1. Here's the story in a nutshell. Cliff (a deeply closeted man) is going to get married to Alyson, a truly annoying person. At their engagement party, he sees Dusty, and there is love at first sight. Now, look at it from Dusty's perspective. Dusty goes to the engagement party as the "plus 1" of his sister in order to use his gaydar to see if her present beau is gay. Dusty determines that his sister's beau is straight as an arrow, but Cliff is setting off the gaydar big time. When Dusty sees Cliff [...]

    2. This book went from a 1 to a 2 star because I absolutely adored Maggie.I found some sections of the book quite enjoyable, but overall I felt the author was channeling a mix of Barbara Cartland, with the theatrics of Oscar Wilde thrown in for good measure.Half the time I felt as though I was sitting through long winded lectures on local history, landmarks, architecture, little known musicals, long departed actresses, and flora suitable for the climate. (as much as I enjoy these topics, most defin [...]

    3. The first word to describe this story is POETIC. Here we have a nice, warm romance between Dustin "Dusty" and Cliff. The main plotted romance in this story isn't specially fresh, but has a wonderful poetic feeling of grace. Of course we have an HEA, too.

    4. 3.5 stars. This story and me, we didn’t click. At all, unfortunately. There’s a lot of depictions and talk about architecture, interior design, musicals, and flowers. When the first lasted over four pages, I skipped. I find this annoying and embarrassing since I wanted to like this story. It started out well. Dusty’s a non-conformist, out and proud.

    5. Reviewed for Hearts On Fire ReviewsI am very sad to report that this book didn’t work for me at all.It is very hard to write a review about a book you couldn’t relate to, but I will try and explain what went wrong and why this book wasn’t for me.It was going well for the first quarter of the book, then it all went downhill.We have Dustin, a normal guy who has a very spot-on gaydar. When his sister asks him to “scan” her new boyfriend for her Dustin finds himself in a very posh engageme [...]

    6. Synopsis: Dusty hasn't had the best luck with relationships, and so he decides to not enter in to any. Then he meets Cliff, who is not out, and is in fact engaged to a woman. The attraction is instantaneous, but both men agree to just be friendsexcept the feelings prove to be too much for both of them.What I liked: the premise. It could have been so good.What I didn't like: both men were wishy-washy and insta-love and justrr. None of the characters were really likeable.
