I like romance and boys loving boys in my books.
You can also find me on my main blog.
In this second book from the Bristol Collection, we meet Mas (again, sort of) who was Jasper's sometime fuck-buddy, suddenly out of a job and suddenly homeless. And nevermind the nasty security dude following him and accosting him in the store about the bottles of perfume Mas might be smuggling out in his backpack.
But Mas runs fast, and then slips into a small store while trying to hide from the big bad security dude.
Fortuitously, Mas ends up in a Vintage shop owned by Perry, who's a bit (okay, a lot) more posh than Mas. And quite startled at the young man popping into his store.
With her typical Britishness and fabulous sense of humor, Jo Myles lets their story unfold one vintage garment at a time. Mas is a quirky and often exasperating character, and Perry, much more sedate, doesn't quite know what to do with the quivering and bouncing slip of a boy.
I adored them both so much! Perry doesn't know what hit him, never thought of himself as gay, but holy hot boysecks, there's not a single thing he lets stand in his way once he allows Mas to sex him up. Except maybe for his belief that he's not good enough for Mas.
All the while, Mas has a similar issue thinking that he's not good enough for the very posh Perry in his vintage vests and shirts.
Of course, neither one of them has the guts to talk about their self-doubts so they just dodder along until - well, you read this for yourself.
A fitting continuation of book one, we also get to revisit with Jasper and Lewis, and their oh so happy ever after.
Utterly charming and adorable, this book made me smile and giggle and awww a lot. Perry is wonderful, Mas is slightly crazy, but together they just fit perfectly.
