Dekker Callan is content with his life though he knows something is missing. Wanting the kind of love his friends share with their partners, Dekker is talked into taking part in a modeling and dating show as part of a fundraiser. He immediately falls in love with the anonymous, sexy voice on the other side of the wall, but fate has a surprise in store–his mystery man isn’t single.
Slade Gannon wasn’t supposed to take part in the dating show. That spot was for his roommate, Phil, who becomes ill and asks Slade to take his place. Slade has just recently gone through a breakup with his cheating boyfriend, George. Shocked and pleased when he wins the interest of handsome Dekker Callan, before he can go on the obligatory blind date, his ex asks for a second chance. Believing Dekker can’t possibly be as good on the inside as he looks on the outside, Slade agrees.
Dekker and Slade hit it off immediately, drawn to each other despite Slade being involved with someone else. They finally get their opportunity to be together when Slade finds out his boyfriend is still cheating, but just as they seem to discover the happiness they’ve been waiting for, George throws them one last hurdle—and this one may prove to be insurmountable.
This was a quick but super sweet, super cute love story! Our two main characters Dekker Callan, the man up for the bidding at the fundraiser his friends put him up to, and Slade Gannon, who stepped in a sick friend's place when he thought he was available to take part. But Slade ends up not single and Dekker ends up interested in more. What can they do but step away and move on with their lives…
I loved how silly and awkward Dekker feels through the whole modeling and dating show because come on who wouldn’t?!?! But he did good and knew right away that he wanted whoever was behind the voice of bachelor (or not) number four. Slade starts to regret his decision to take back his ex after getting to know Dekker a little better, realizing the man behind the good looks is more than he bargained for.
The overall storyline was fun and fast paced and instant lust with a potential for more feeling between these two guys. The date they went on wasn’t your typical; which speaks to who these guys are which is part of how they fit together. The author gave us fun and mischievous secondary characters that were fun to watch with Dekker but you can tell he has a good group of friends. I thought Rex’s t-shirts he loaned or gave to Dekker were super funny and awesome!
The ending was quick, the rest of the story and the lovey stuff was sweet and corny but it worked for these two guys. Oh and the smexy scenes were filled of that hot tension we all love. Overall a great book for a first time author and will definitely be watching in the future for more from her.
