Book Review

Cute – closely followed by adorable and very sweet – are  the words that come to mind when I try to describe this story. The cast of characters is just perfect for such a relatively short story. The two main characters are Myles, a divorced dad who is too closeted to even consider coming out, and Dillon, a kindergarten teacher who is not exactly shy about his preference for men. Then there is Myles’s six-year-old daughter, Jenny, whom he has not spent much time with so far and who is about to graduate from kindergarten. Her mother, Myles’s still friendly ex-wife, and her new husband are sort of in the picture too, and very supportive of Myles finding some happiness.

The field trip to the zoo that sets everything in motion is a riot, even if Jenny runs away and Myles is too shy to react to Dillon’s careful attempts at flirting. Myles regrets it afterward, but by then it’s too late. Luckily his ex has a plan, Dillon is courageous enough to follow it, and things begin to move in the right direction.

If you like your romances sweet and relatively drama free, if two men trying to figure out how to get to know each other better are your thing, and if you’re looking for an entertaining read with lots of humor and a great kid interested in finding a boyfriend for her father, then you will probably like this novella.
