Luckily by the second time the two meet, Michael is relieved to find out that Teo was with his sister, not anyone of the less-platonic variety. That doesn’t mean Michael knows how to go about ...more
However, I just couldn’t get into this one. The dialogue between Teo (tho he’s referred to as Tristan a time or two, Julien and Benjamin… sooo, just pick one) and anyone had me rolling my eyes so hard. It was like he was trying to be cliché, and he was so extra that I j ...more
I loved the teasing between Teo and his sister & I really enjoyed the cute funny Dr names that Teo had for Michael in his head.

I like Teo and I like Micheal. I like them together. I really like that Micheal does not freak out when he finds himself so attracted to Teo after having only been with women.
The circle of friends from the last book in the series is gushie sweet.
Then... cue dumb outside conflict.
Not so good and the writing a character work gets really tell based and not show based and stays pretty surface level.
So, not great.

Awesome, captivating. I don't always think that love at first sight always work, but it did for Teo and Michael.
The way they met you would never guess that their worlds would collide, but it did in a wonderful way.
I loved how their story came alive and see their love flourish.
Really enjoyable. ...more
There’s days where you want a sweet, fun read to counter balance all the angst that I love to read. This book fits the bill. I did not read the first book, so it definitely can be read as a standalone. Sweet, with a few funny parts mixed in made a fun read.
This is the first book I've read by Rheland Richmond and I enjoyed it. The characters were believable and fun to read. The plot was a little predictable but that didn't take away from the charm of the story. There were a few instances of extra information that wasn't really needed to set the scene, which slowed down the story for me, and a few tropes common to this genre. I a ...more

Michael at first thinks teos married to his patient but when he discovers hes single and very much inter ...more

For as long as she can remember Rheland had her nose stuck in a book, getting lost in the world of someone else's creation (She still does). Her love for writing came from her love for reading. She could never have one without the other.
Writing was always a hobby and a cathartic experience for her. There are many stories lost to the never to be completed or pu ...more
