This is only the second book I ve read by this author, both are great fun, sassy, cute and touching.Boone, is a baker, madly in love with life, his family and completely opposite of what anyone would think of when you picture a gay baker As they say, they broke the mold when they made him, well him and and brothers.Robbie on the other hand, is exactly what you picture when you read about this character Full of himself, surrounded by self righteous friends and only wants the best of the best Not terribly likable.So when these two meet, of course, the attraction, the chemistry is off the charts Boone can t help but flirt, and tease Robbie and Robbie can t help but want to tame that It s an amazing tug of war to watch The secondary cast that they surround themselves with is also a hoot to watch A little over the top, a little unrealistic, but completely fun The other two brothers, the fathers, the mothers, the staff.The brides and the cake I want pictures of that CAKE My one complaint, is the way that Robbie and Robbie friends keep treating Boone, the comments, even at the end and yet Boone, with little recourse allows it, takes him back I kept finding myself saying, stop settling on this jerk Boone clearly has a low self esteem issue, and Robbie has a god complex, both issues needs addressing Maybe in the next book I also have a love hate with the ending, we get a HFN and a cliffy Really , Really I would have given a 4.5 but we aren t allowed.5 so It s a 4. So I enjoyed this story but just a warning the he timelines don t line up with the events of the first story. This is my first book by Mathew Ortiz and it won t be my last This story landed him straight on my favorite list I love a story full of colorful, unique characters, a funny, and fun plot and a sexy romance This story had it all and.This is a book two and I haven t read this first but am on the way to correcting that and followed it well I also fond out that some of the other characters are crossovers from other series I ll have to correct that as well , but I followed along just fine.The story is told in alternating views both Robbie and Boone Robbie Gaither is a stuck up, snobbish man that wants to climb the corporate ladder and is well on his way After not long in the event planning company, he is working for he gets a promotion and the best contracts Since his family helped him in his first big event, and in his family, they all help each other he is helping plan his cousin s wedding This is the opening scene and so funny I adored his aunt Mabelle The family is very low country, and opposite of Robbie who is trying to be citified Getting the wedding cake leads him to meet Boone Meyer one of the Meyer Triplets Boone is very out and very queenish, the opposite of what Robbie likes in a man, but something attracts him to Boone They meet again in a club they both frequent and sparks fly, not only do they fly they ignite one heck of a flame Then Robbie s snooty friends interfere putting down Boone There is lots of back and forth where Boone is very open has no filter, yet Robbie is very self confident and snobby Boone is a diabetic and dealing with that as well I also loved Boone s Mom and Maw Maw.I loved that neither man is perfect Robbie has to deal with his friends or love, and Boone has his health There is lots of humor and heat in this story The ending is sneaky I wanted to read Cotton s story anyhow now I am dying for it If you like contemporary gay romance, out and proud flashy characters, snobby businessmen, Event planners, bakers, a sweet romance, humor and hot man sex, you will love this This is Boone s story the second of the Myer triplets.I was looking forward to Boone s story he was larger than life, funny and confident in his skin His initial meeting with Robbie was as I expected when opposites attract humorous and engaging with flusters on both sides However, in my opinion there seemed to be a big chunk of the story missing It went from shy attraction on both sides to practicality being together without the middle bit.the middle bit of overcoming their issues and establishing a relationship got lost somewhere.I seriously rechecked my kindle to make sure I hadn t skipped a chapter or two After such a detailed courtship with Avery, it sucked not having the same applied here missed opportunities meh Overall though, it was another low angst sweet tale Mawmaw still had me smirking with her inappropriate feisty comments The ending was a little bit of a cliffhanger and set up for book 3 Cotton s story and after the teaser in this book of his first meeting with Caleb, I m looking forward to reading it.

Sexy,sweet and hilariousI have so much love for this book Boone and Robbie are complete opposites Boone is crazy care free and has a careless attitude Don t get me wrong when it comes to his work and his family he is all business and all in, but on life ye tends to just have fun He hasn t has a serious relationship in awhile due to his strong commitment to his job and business and just can t seem this find anyone who understands Robbie is e complete opposite he is preppy uptight and very straight lased, the he meets the outgoing Boone and for unknown reasons to him he is drawn to him even though he the opposite of what Robbie usually goes for The two love hard fight hard and make up harder I can t get enough of the Myer triplets and can not wait for Cotton s story Just as good if not better than the first because, well, Boone He s better than awesome He s fun, funny, out, proud but also has hidden depth that really moved me And while Robbie seemed shallow at first he proved to be far from it Loved this book and cannot wait for the next one. Love this seriesI just loved the hell out of Boone he was funny and so Spirited.Robbie was okI missed these characters and am patiently waiting for the next book.
