SUMMARY
Eric Wesley is short and snazzy, hot and happy. Or that's what he thought. After three years of living on the wild side he's tired of being a playboy and wants to find love.

Eric, however, has never been in love before and doesn't see that the guy who's been gazing at him all summer might be Mr. Right. Boring-suit-guy Alexander Centauri isn't only style-less and clumsy, but also terribly awkward. After a miserable date, Eric plants Alex on another guy's lap and goes after Mr. Wrong…who looks so right.

When Eric realizes his mistake, it might be too late.

Note: Can be read as a standalone.

ABSOLUTELY ERIC really wasn't what I was expecting while I jumped around excitedly expecting this book to come out. This second book in a series offered a very different view of the characters that we got from A Life Without You.

We all loved Eric, or okay, if you're anything like me you loved the little queen and his big mouth. The guy in this story was quite different from the man I was expecting to get when I first started reading. Eric likes to sleep around, and he does. From fuck buddies to casual sex, he doesn't seem too picky and when he refuses Alex, a good guy who has a tendency of dropping things when around Eric, he ends up with the ultimate bad guy, who we don't quite experience to his full ugly potential until the second part of the book.

For me, this book lacked consistency. I felt the guys changed too often and too drastically to be very realistic. I liked Eric's open attitude toward sex but not what seemed almost naivety when it came to anything substantial as well as his disregard for actual meaningful sex.

The first sex scene involving the two characters from the first book was really out of character, but unfortunately it did somewhat set the tone for the rest of the book, one that I had trouble shaking off.

While surprised by the nature of Eric's bad boyfriend, I did enjoy the development of that aspect of the story and all misunderstandings aside, this was a really good book. The rating might be somewhere in between three and four stars, but if you like outspoken, flamboyant characters and a lovely romantic story I do recommend this. Just be aware that Eric does love to have sex and no matter how confident he might seem, there is a very vulnerable side to him.
