Sometimes fate brings us the right person to make our world perfect.

Dayton VanHooren is a United States senator who doesn’t really like his job. He’s been too busy to date, much less pick anyone up for sex. Being openly gay means he doesn’t have to worry about scandal, but he’s looking for something more than a good time.

Mickey O’Leary can barely think, he’s so exhausted. Working three jobs to help pay his brother’s hospital bills keeps him going and helps him forget about how lonely he is. Mickey would like to meet a nice guy who won’t run at the first hint of Mickey’s problems.

A wedding reception and a thunderstorm are catalysts to bring these two men together. What can they do when they discover the perfect man for them but fall in love

book review 7

This book was great. Taking a subject like having an openly gay Republican congressman was priceless. The story itself though touched on numerous heavy topics never swayed from the light happy feel you got when the story began. It was a modern day Cinderella,  well Cinderfella tale to a degree.

Chase was able to bring the heart of what was important about each of these men. They didn’t let their vastly different backgrounds stop them from what felt right. Dayton was able to see things through Mickey’s eyes even though their livescwere so vastly different and be the man Mickey needed him to be for both him and his brother Shamus. Though the HEA was very predictable, it didn’t take away from the thtill of rwading how they get there.


Overall Impression:

4 * – I really liked it- To me once again T.A. Chase lived upnto my expectations.  This was an amazingly cute story. If you are looking fort a quick read that will leave you with the warm and fuzzies, this one is for you. There was a smile on my face the entire book. I will continue reading any of his books I can.
