Contemporary Romance, LGBTQ
One thing Liam Turner knows for sure is that he's not gay—after all, his father makes it very clear he'll allow no son of his to be gay. And Liam believes it, until a chance meeting with James "Jay" Bell turns Liam's world upside-down. Jay is vivacious and unabashedly gay—from the tips of his bleached hair to the ends of his polished nails. With a flair for fashion, overreaction, and an inability to cork his verbal diarrhea, Liam believes drama queen Jay must have a screw loose.
An accident as a teenager left Liam with a limp and a fear of driving. He can't play football anymore either, and that makes him feel like less of a man. But that's no reason to question his sexuality... unless the accident broke something else inside him. When being with Jay causes Liam's protective instincts to emerge, Liam starts to believe all he knew in life had been a convenient excuse to stay hidden. From intolerance to confrontations, Liam must learn to overcome his fears—and his father—before he can accept his sexuality and truly love Jay.

Oh, this was absolutely adorable and so charming.
Liam has been drawn to this guy, Jay, who is at the same stop as him on the way to work every morning. He watches him, moons over him, waits for him, but Liam isn't gay. No, not him.
Until he finally gets the opportunity to actually talk to Jay.
They hit it off, flirt, have coffee every morning. Liam thinks about Jay, wants to touch him, wants to do dirty things with him. But Liam's not gay.
Don't worry, he does come to the conclusion that wanting to have sex with Jay does, in fact, make him gay, or at least bi. He realizes this early on, which I'll be eternally grateful for because that only made more lovey-couple time for them. Despite his initial angst over the issue, Liam comes to terms with his sexuality rather easily. I think it has to do with his complete infatuation with Jay. If he has to admit he's gay in order to be with Jay, so be it. He'll do anything for Jay.
I loved that the story was about two normal guys. Nothing special, nothing extraordinary, just how Liam fell in love with Jay. It was simple, sweet and so heartwarming.
Highly, highly recommended for a feel-good romance between two unforgettable, endearing characters.
