Summary The Other Guy

Emory James is by his own admission not the type of person the adjective exciting would ever deign to touch with a ten foot pole Cautious reserved and staid however all crowd a. Dear book you made me HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY with warm and fuzzy feeling I wanted to sueeze you and hug you and kiss you all over Thank you for putting a huge smile to my face because I rarely get that these days from this genre You are like a ray of sunshine after a huge amount of rainy days MWAH MWAH MWAH This was the story about The Other Guy The guy that the heroine left at the altar to be with the True Love The guy whose only fault was being boring or less handsome or flawed My original review was about 1500 words that was how much I was in love with this story I wanted to mention every single things that I love about it BUT I am able to control myself and instead I will give you a list insteadThe Things I Love The story didn t describe Emory drowning in sorrow or unhappiness or hating women in general It was really well written with a dose of humor and dignity in which Emory discovered how to find his new self and true love along the way I laughed with him felt frustrated when he was acting stupid because Emory was not without flaws He had tendency to pick the safe road that he preferred to run away from his problems or put them in a box to deal with another day But because of that it made him human too I smiled happily when he finally grabbed his own chance of happiness Even if the story was written solely from Emory s perspective the rest of the characters were shining in their own way Nate the love interest Linn and Hal the best friends Julie Nate s big sister Heck even Michelle the ex whom I wanted to hate ended up being kind of decent Her return gave the right amount of drama without being overboard The story might start with long sentences of inner monologues but hey Emory was just left at the altar okay He wasn t ready to bitch at it with other people But once he made that connection with Nate there were fresh and AMUSING banters AWESOME chemistry No personal pet peeves THANK YOU BOOKThe Things I Don t LoveWell NONE duh Okay maybe one I wanted pages grin Advisory If you are trying to get this book and looking for smut you will NOT get it All of the sex scenes are done behind closed door which is like YAY for me hahaha

The Other Guy

Round him like best friends Still he gets by or at least he gets by up until his fiancée dumps him at the altar Out of spite he takes a solo honeymoon to Thailand where he can. I m stuck between 3 and 4 stars for this one I enjoyed the basic elements of the story and the settings in Thailand and Chicago were described well enough to make you think the author actually has a working knowledge of both places Both of the main characters were likeable and believeable not pedestal worthy idealized super heroes But I definitely agree that the book could have used some editing tightening up the story and descriptions and cutting out some of the lengthier sections of Emory s internal dialogue The first person narrative was interesting for a while but eventually I tired of Emory wrestling with the same issues over and over I would have appreciated knowing Nate s thoughts I was never completely clear WHY he liked Emory so much In other reviews I ve complained of gratuitous sex scenes and of skimming to get to where the story actually moves ahead I didn t think I d ever ask for MORE in a story but I would have appreciated ANY in this book Not for a need to be titillated but to flesh out the character of Emory and his realization that he is actually gay The guy was exclusively dating women engaged and left at the altar and within say five days had his first sexual experience with another man Here is where a larger portion of the story any portion should have been for me at least Emory grappling with this terrifying and new experience of another guy s junk And of how Nate handled the situation Instead one moment they are making the momentous decision to go to one or the other s room and the next Emory is missing Nate because Nate has flown home That is a hell of a lot to leave out of the story of a man s life changing realization that he is gay Sure Emory struggles with telling his friends and family about this but he doesn t really have any internal struggle with hey I m sleeping with a guy now It s just accepted nothing to see here move along shrug So I liked the story and I liked the characters I just think a little bit of polishing would turn it into a story I REALLY liked

Pretend to be someone better than himself for a little while In meeting Nate a The Other Kindle fellow traveler Emory slowly discovers how to stop pretending Word Count approx. 45 stars This book has one of the most irresistible first chapters I ve read in a while It s impossible not to relate to good guy Emory and his bad luck with love After being jilted at the altar he goes to Thailand alone and meets Nate who re ignites his passion for life But Emory is still too wounded emotionally to let someone in so they part not thinking they will ever meet again Several months later Nate turns up and a beautiful friendship startsThis is just a lovely gentle story Emory is uite flawed in many ways He seems to let things happen to him rather than go out and grab life by the balls But the author is able to make him totally relatable I was so invested in his journey to a HEA with the steadfast Nate There s no sex and even though I didn t miss it I would have liked to see Emory uestioning the physical side of his new found gayness amongst all his internal dialogue

    This thing starts off so intensely funny it's like a shock and awe campaign Operation Rolling ChucklethunderBut once you get into the meat of the story you find a certain number of troubling things to consider1 A delusional MC too chickenshit to do anything but wait for his life to deteriorate around him2 A kind of oddly anachronistic condescendingly fustian attitude towards sex that produces a situation where two grown men circle round one
