This was a guest review for the Boys In Our Books *Spring Cleaning*

So when Ami asked me if I had a book collecting virtual dust on my virtual bookshelf I had to laugh.
Do I ever, way too many. Ami checked my shelves and told me I HAD to do some spring cleaning and while I was at it, a guest review of my dust bunny book.
I picked a book that I bought a loooong time ago, so long ago that I hadn't added it to GR and the publisher doesn't exist anymore.

2.5 but I won't ever read this again, so I'm rounding down.

I love the title of this novella. It was one of the reasons why I decided to give it a whirl when the blurb didn’t necessarily scream buy me. But unfortunately, my reservations from the blurb ended up prevailing.

Nolan is on his way to Savannah, to help out an ex with his bar. He’s trying to re-imagine his life and identity after his most recent boyfriend kicked him out because he thought Nolan needed to learn some responsibility. Nolan’s

4.5 stars. For a novella, this story and its heroes have surprising depth. And though there are butterflies in the story, this is about breaking away from preconceptions of oneself as a loser and a failure and deciding to seek happiness instead.

Nolan’s ex throws him out, always subtly or less-than subtly calling him a failure. On his way to a new job in a new town, Nolan meets misfortune and ends up stuck in a small town which only booms during a short visit by rare butterflies but now suffers u

Nolan is trying to get to Savannah where he is going to manage his friend’s bar when he’s on vacation after Nolan’s BF suggested they “take a break”. Everyone figures Nolan is a screw-up who can’t do anything, so he’s determined to prove them wrong and when the planes aren’t running he rents a car and heads off. He ends up with car trouble in a small town just as their butterfly festival is about to start. At the guest house he meets Gray who charms his way into sharing his room because he’s had ...more

Nolan and Gray. What can I say? I liked them. I didn't really believe that Nolan was the screw up that people thought he was. For some reason that really bothered me. I think I needed to see it. I think I needed to really believe that he was a screw up, because even HE said he was.

Then there was Gray. I liked him. I liked him a lot :) But, I think I would have loved this story if they talked instead of assuming.
Nolan is a nice guy who needs the chance to grow up. His ex, Elias, needs to be smacked. I wanted to shake both Nolan and Gray for not talking to each other and for letting silly misunderstandings create problems for them.

I enjoyed the beautiful prose, engaging writing style and interesting characters (primary and secondary). I didn't like the silly, easy to-be-avoided misunderstanding between two MCs.

Writing bios always makes me think of that line from `Buffy The Vampire Slayer` -- "Think of something cool, tell him I said it." So, lo! Here are some interesting and fascinating things you really need to know about me:

1. Coffee is life. So is tea, and occasionally when I can get my mitts on them, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.

2. I'm in the final year of working for my Masters' in Creative Writing.
