Contemporary Romance, LGBTQ

Tristan Green left his small English town for Manhattan and a job at a high profile ad agency, but can't seem to find his bearings. He spends a lot of time working late at night, eating and sleeping alone, and even more time meandering around his neighborhood staring into the darkened windows of shops. One night when he's feeling really low, he wanders by a beautiful little bakery with the lights still on. The baker invites him in, and some time during that night Tristan realizes it's the first time he's really smiled in months.

Henry Livingston has always been the odd duck, the black sheep, the baker in an old money family where pedigree is everything and quirky personalities are hidden behind dry martinis and thick upper east side townhouse facades. Henry is drawn to Tristan's easy country charm, dry English wit, and everything that is so different from Henry's world.

Their new romance is all buttercream frosting and sugared violets until Tristan's need to fit in at work makes him do something he desperately wishes he could undo. Tristan has to prove to Henry that he can be trusted again before they can indulge in the sweet stuff they're both craving.

Sweet! In every sense of the word.

Henry owns his own small bakery and is there at all hours filling orders. One night Tristan wanders into the shop at midnight. They get to talking, that leads to flirting, which then leads to me swooning all over them.

They hit it off right away and I really enjoyed reading about them. They were playful and fun with their lighthearted and friendly banter. They were also sweet with their kisses and light touches. Regardless of the opposites attract theme, they had crazy chemistry and that was the focus.

I'm always a fan of a simple love story. Not too much angst or outside drama, just two people who are attracted to one another and go through the motions of building a solid relationship. That's exactly what I got with Tristan and Henry. They went on dates, baked together, and they met the parents, all the normal stuff people do when dating. It was cute and easy to read.

I was grinning like an idiot almost the whole way through. Almost! The ending was too abrupt. They had a bit of a falling out and it was resolved way too quickly. With the wonderful relationship Henry and Tristan were forming, I think they deserved an epilogue. Something more solid would have been nice.

M.J. O'Shea and Anna Martin are both auto buys for me, so I knew I would adore them together. MACARONS AT MIDNIGHT is highly recommended.
