This is a wonderful story, written in first person, and with lots of self-deprecating humor coming from the narrator and main character, Drew. When Drew falls for Cameron, who has only recently come out, he knows he might be in trouble. The emotions Drew goes through touched me, as did the situation Cameron finds himself in.

Drew has a lot of good friends, who are all eager to help him find love after his recent relationship disaster. He isn't sure he'll ever find love again, and even when he doe

Cute. Sweet. Definitely an insta-love situation, in some ways it worked for me and in others it didnt. Both MCs were sweet and adorable and they definitely fit together, I'm just not sure I buy how easy it was for Cameron to jump into a relationship with Drew.

I did like that this was told from Drew's pov. Nearly every other story like this I've read has been from the inexperienced partner's pov. This was definitely a refreshing change.

I needed a sweet happy story without too much conflict or angst, and this one fit the bill perfectly.
Drew meets Cameron at a party and this meeting makes Cameron decide to come out for Drew.
They fall in love quickly but it isn't all smooth sailing.

Awwww, so cute and sweet! <3
Loved the humor and the characters, usually intervening best friends irritate me, but here it was done just right and very enjoyable.
Light and fun read!

This review can be found at Brief Encounters Reviews.

This short story played on a couple of themes that both make me crazy and appeal to me. Drew has not been apart from his ex for long but his friends parade an endless stream of losers through his life, intent on getting him coupled up again. This is the theme that makes me crazy. What perhaps makes me crazier is characters who let it happen and don’t put a stop to it if they really dislike it. They seem to think if they confront their friend

I was really between a 3 and a 4 on this one, so I'll say it's a 3.5.

This is a super cute story of Drew and Cameron. Drew has just gotten out of a seven year relationship with his cheating boyfriend and his friends have been setting him up with every gay guy they can find. He's getting REALLY tired of all his dates with Mr. Wrong. He finally tells his friend Wendy he is DONE with dating when she invites him over for a "small get together" and she introduces him to Cameron. Cameron seems to like

Oh, this one is such a delightful story!! Written from Drew's point of view, and his frustration of being set-up with horrible, horrible dates by his friends, until he meets Cameron, whom unfortunately, is a "man-virgin". I think Drew's inner voice is really funny. I chuckle several times along the way, reading what he is thinking about Cameron or his friends. This story falls in the less-angsty side of a romance. Sure, Cameron must deal with his bigot parents, but I'm sure with the hel

A story that doesn't start out in a fun way, but made me laugh in certain places, even though it probably wasn't meant to. I did enjoy the play on worlds as each of Drew's friends try to play 'yenta' in the aid of his love life, with inevitable bad results following. A believable meet-cute, a believable match, a lovely short story with a few good twists and turns included to keep things interesting. Nx

This is a very sweet and a very enjoyable story. Nothing too taxing, just simple and clean storytelling. Mr. Bowie has a nice writing style, one that flows well and stays on point. I give With A Little Help From My Friends three stars.

Leaving home at age eighteen for the bright lights of London, he found himself in the midst of a “diverse and creative crowd” that eventually led him to the performing arts. For th
