This was a book I read a few years ago. I remember it being cute, sweet, light on the sex, no angst and a lot of fun. Just a couple of cute neighbors falling in love.

So there ya go! Read it if you want a nice little love story with not much else. :)

Very nice sweet comedy novella about two neighbours falling in love with the help of their respective families.

Home working thirty something nerdy Avery is babysitting his 4 years old nephew and dreaming about his hunky neighbour Ethan. To his knowledge Ethan is a straight divorced father of two teenager girls; the same girls are also in the softball team Avery is coaching, and they have some inside news for their own father: apparently clumsy Avery is like that only when he is near Ethan.

Avery is seriously crushing on his next door neighbor, Ethan. Unfortunately, said neighbor is a divorced, single day...and, oh yeah, he's straight. Not. After losing a bet, Ethan shows up at Avery's door, cookies in hand, and looking "absolutely delicious."

I loved this book. There were a few things, I would have changed to up the plausibility factor, but they weren't deal breakers. The sex was steamy...I love a pushy bottom. Also, loved how the guys families were so supportive.

I enjoyed Catch Me If I Fall, its a typically HEA story. I liked the authors writing, my only problem was I wish it would of been a bit longer as it would of been interesting to see how this relationship would of grown.
I was disappointed in this book. I wanted geeks in love, but got a couple of odd characters that didn't quite mesh in my mind. A little more awkward and a little less dreaming of sexing might have worked better for this story.
I thought that this was a very funny book with some great lines and witty banter, and enjoyable characters. Great debut from this author and I look forward to what she writes next!
great story! They both seem like guys I would want to know! Now if we can just get the adult male Girl Scout uni on the cover it wold be 5+ stars!! haha
This is a short sweet love story of two neighbors who finally come together, with some help from their families, after over a year of fantasizing about each other and having romantic feelings for one another. One of the men doesn't make a move on the other because he believes that the other man is straight because he has two daughters and is divorced; however, things aren't always what they seem. This love story is angst free and is funny and fast paced. It occurs over a week and no, the men don...more
Borderline fluff, but well written and lacking the melodrama of writers like Stormy Glenn

Warning: This review might contain what some people consider SPOILERS.

Rating: 8/10

- Even though the story is short, it has a number of powerful little moments that brought a grin to my face. Some of them come from the main characters’ interactions, and others come from the men’s interactions with their families.
- For once, there’s a child character in a story who amused me rather than annoyed me. Aver...more

This was cute. I really liked klutzy Avery. Ethan, why did it take him so long to show interest? I didn't get it.

Oh and (view spoiler)

I also liked the kids. They acted their ages. Especially the teens ;) "COOKIE MAN!"

3.5 stars
Short and sweet.
I would have liked it more if it were longer and the story had time to develop a bit more and for us to learn more about the characters. As it is we just get a glimpse into Ethan and Avery's lives, they finally go out on a date, confirm their beliefs the other is "the one" and the story ends. A shame since I liked both the main and the supporting characters and think a longer story would have given the readers an opportunity to find out more about them as well as been an...more
A very short and cute love story. I'm always week in the knees when I read about 2 men falling in love and one of them happens to be a geek. There is just something about that that does it for me. And I loved that Ethans teenage daughters were playing matchmaker.
Don Bradshaw
A cute piece of romantic fluff. Though sweet, Knox added enough comedy to make it a fun read. Ethan and Avery make a perfect couple in what is essentially one evening's date.
3.5 stars. Good m/m romance about a computer programmer who works from home and lusts after the obviously straight divorced dad/construction worker who lives next door.
A cute, sweet and adorable love story between nerdy-gawky programmer and his sexy-dimpled neighbour ^^
I laughed so hard reading this book. Being a geek never sounded so good!!!
