Reviewer: Cat
Review: Galen and Jovan’s moms both love them very much but they both want their sons to find love and move on.  Jovan’s mom has put a lonely hearts add in the paper and Galen's mom replies to it for Galen.  Jovan’s mom has a party for Galen inviting some of the replies and Galen and Jovan hit it off immediately.
Ok so this story was good. It had a lot of promise and is a very basic boy meets boy falls in love at first site, hits a bump and happy ever after.  It’s very sugary sweet with some very hot loving so you can’t really go wrong if you’re looking for a nice romance to make you go ahh! I loved all the characters even the moms. I though they about stole the show!!  I loved Galen’s quirks and Jovan is the classic gotta love hot male. I also loves the touch of humor. Now for the things I didn’t like so much.  #1  they were so opposite there would be some clashing, Jovan’s messing and masculine and Galen  was overly compulsive on cleaning though  not a tiff or word ensued there.  Then along comes Galen’s ex Johnny flashing fancy sports cars for Galen.  Jovan gets a bit  jealous but that’s about it even when he follows  and issue ensue he  basically shrugs it off and even helps Johnny? *shakes head* Then there is all the man ogling from all the characters. They even tease about Galen’s assistant and Johnny’s boyfriend that he brings along when he is trying to win over Galen. Like I said before it’s a great story but oh so sweet  unbelievably sweet!
Recommendations: If you like syrupy sweet romance, meddling Moms that mean well, love at first sight,  fast cars and hot men this one is for you
