Publisher's Summary

Milo.

Unusual. Quirky. Different. I’ve heard it all. I’ve accepted I’m not for everyone. Maybe not anyone. When I find out I inherited a bookstore and apartment on a small East Coast island, I jump at the chance for a new life. Turns out I’ve also inherited a sexy, tattooed guy who not only rents the space next to my store for his tattoo parlor but my apartment too.

Did I mention he’s really hot? And surprisingly sweet?

Gideon.

I wasn’t looking for a roommate, but it’s not like I can stay at Milo’s place while he’s banished to a hotel. Our unlikely friendship is instant. According to Milo, we’re bestie goals. And if he doesn’t wear pants at home, who am I to complain?

Milo’s not like anyone I’ve ever known. I like laughing and flirting with him. He’s adorably honest, eager, and sexier than he realizes. Now, I just have to figure out how to convince him that maybe it’s time for an upgrade from bestie to boyfriend goals.

Warm and Sweet with Outstanding Narration

I'm glad I chose the audio for this story as Iggy Toma gives a highly enjoyable voice performance for all characters, including the women's voices. I always sink into a story read by his voice and this is no exception.

The basic storyline is fairly simple but navigating from roommates to friends to lovers is complex. Milo is neurodivergent, on the autism spectrum. He strikes out on his own when his previously unknown-to-him grandmother passes away and leaves her bookstore to him. The shop next door and the one available apartment are rented by Gideon, a very hot, very sweet tattoo artist.

Those who enjoy sexual exploration should enjoy this. Milo knows he's gay but he and Gideon spend a lot of time teaching Milo all the sexual acts in person that he's previously only read about. Get the picture? Yes, it's hot. But it's also entertaining and enjoyable in other ways. The secondary characters play an important role and move the story along. I enjoyed it so much I zipped through it in only two days--quite fast for me for audios. If you plan to purchase this one, do so in audio. You won't regret the choice.

Great Story and Made Me Feel Good

Took chance on this one and loved it. Great listen, and loved the characters. Also liked how Milo having Autism was written, felt real.

Loved Milo!!!

So, when this book was first released, I kept telling myself I was going to make time to read it. Well, life happens and I became overwhelmed with arcs, so I turned to the next best thing, audiobooks. And boy, was I so not disappointed!! This book was everything! It was hilarious, sexy, and diving into neurodivergent was definitely appreciated!

“𝗣𝗹𝗲𝗮𝘀𝗲 𝗱𝗼𝗻’𝘁 𝗱𝗶𝗲, 𝗜 𝗺𝗶𝗴𝗵𝘁 𝗻𝗼𝘁 𝗲𝘃𝗲𝗿 𝗵𝗮𝘃𝗲 𝘁𝗵𝗶𝘀 𝗰𝗵𝗮𝗻𝗰𝗲 𝗮𝗴𝗮𝗶𝗻”

So Milo and Gideon were the epitome of perfection! Gideon’s patience with Milo’s quirks, along with his hesitancy regarding intimacy, filled my heart with so much joy. Not to mention Iggy did an amazing job of nailing Milo’s character performance just as I would have envisioned. The realism of these two, from their sexual exploration to their simple intimate moments, ten stars!!

Swoon

Ok, I absolutely loved this book. The dialog was hilarious and quirky and I love the dive into nuero-divergence! Milo is an absolute breath of fresh air and Gideon and him just fit together in a total swoony way! And I love that this didn’t fit the typical romance stereotype of them hooking up. It felt very real! And obviously, Iggy Toma did amazing as always!!

This is the sweetest book ever. I have now listened to it twice and I am sure I will listen to it many more time's. I can't wait to own every book from Riley Hart. Iggy Toma is so great at portraying both main characters.

Loved it so much I read and listened

Milo and Gideon are one of my most favorite couples. I grinned the entire way through this book both times I’ve read it.
Iggy did a perfect job with them-he sounded just how I imagined them to sound.

Quirky romance

Where do we start with Milo, quirky, unique, neurodivergent, who is also the nicest, bluntest person you would want to know.

Then we have Gideon (Tattoo man). He's hot, tattooed and available, and hot.

Together you have the most honest friendship you could get, which is so refreshing.

Iggy Toma did a wonderful job at narrating these two, bringing them alive and had me smiling throughout the book.

Touching and sweet

I loved the characters and how they reacted in the face of the different way Milo sees the world. It made me smile so much and the narration was perfect. Milo and Gideon are adorable characters and I just wanted them to work it all out.

Cringe-fest

On paper this sounds like a great story but sadly the writing for Milo is very weird and makes him super awkward and cringe. I'm all for eccentricity but I couldn't even get past chapter 3.

A different lovestory

I fell in love with Milo from the first chapter. He is so perfectly different, vulnerable and strong in his own way. Gideon is his perfect match and he too fell in love right from meeting Milo, even if he didn't know it yet. Milo's character is refreshing and beautifully portrayed and I simply loved his complete honesty even if it got him in triuble sometimes.

Iggy Toma was the perfect narrator for this book. He gave life to all Milo's quirks and Gideons complete acceptance of them.

Brilliant!

I seriously could not put this book down! Such a character driven read, all of the people in this book felt real and I wanted to live in their world with them!
My heart swelled as I recognised Autistic/Neurodivergent/Spectrum traits Milo demonstrated that I possess and also shown in my loved ones - making me love this character (and identify with him) even more. Not only that, but I recognised the reactions he faced - which was surprisingly validating.
So not only is this a simply brilliant story, it can give back to the reader in unexpected ways - enriching our own lives and making us come out happier people at the end of it.
It's not even only about Milo - but the relationships built with the people of the town are magnificent and deeply ingrained histories are portrayed sensitively and with feeling. Everyone should read this book - it's as simple as that!

So sweet!

I don’t think I stopped smiling once throughout this book. While I wish Milo described himself as autistic more often because neurodivergent is too broad a term I loved his character so much. And Gideon with his piercings and tattoos? Yes. I could read this book over and over it was just so sweet and made me happy!

Loved it!

I really enjoyed this book. It had a lighter less emotional feel than other Riley Hart books I’ve read but still hit all the feels! I loved the characters and how Milo’s neuro diversity made him such an honest, kind, interesting & lovable guy. Hot tattooed Gideon was truly boyfriend goals!
Narration was excellent and the different characters were easily identifiable and unique
