#ThrowBookThursday: I bumped into this hashtag on a virtual book club, and I loved it. The notion is instead of a Throwback Thursday photograph (which, like many queerfolk who were kicked to the curb, I don’t have beyond a certain date), you post a book you loved from back when. You all know how I feel about book reviews and bringing attention to missed gems, so…There's a whole story about reading this book that I love to tell. Basically, The Night We Met dropped perfectly into my lap at a t [...]
Rating 2.5There was nothing new about this story for me. I grew up watching tons of Bollywood movies and this kind of story line was their motto, except the two guys falling in love part of course. Anyway, it was a simple rom com nothing much. When I first started reading it I was hooked. I loved the writing and the main character Andrew. But as the events unfolded the story lost it's charm. Andrew was just plain stupid and the writer made him super stupid so that he could take the story forward [...]
It is a fluffy, comedy situation type of book -- only change the usual hero/heroine to hero/hero. it started funny and made me giggled with the hero's experience. unfortunately, after i passed the mid part of the book, the hero started to annoy me very much
Even though some of the main character's choices in this story approached egregious levels (I was seriously rolling my eyes through some of it), I found this to be a fun and enjoyable read overall. It even got a few laughs out of me, which is something that doesn't happen very often.
This was a very fun read! There were times the book had me laughing at the situations in which the protagonist would find himself. Good, light-hearted read!
3.5 starsYou’ve heard the term ‘romp,’ right? That describes this book perfectly. Andrew is a book editor who’s managed to publish two novels to absolutely zero notice and no acclaim. Frank is a gangster, who has just opened a new gay bar called Benedick’s (which throughout is constantly mispronounced by people as Benedict’s, perhaps so they don’t have to realise that the original name, well, Frank is Italian and ‘bene’ in Italian means ‘good…). After being harangued into d [...]
First off, I rarely give "just for fun" books five stars. This one deserved it, so there's the beginning of just how wonderful this book was.Picture a book editor, Andrew, recently (and not willingly) single and gay, whose ex just picked up something younger and cuter. Andrew's first two books are on the bargain bin, he's feeling pretty down, and then at an opening party for a new gay bar, he meets the man of his dreams, the man who could just maybe be, Mr. Right.If Mr. Right was a quasi-heteros [...]
Someone thinks they're Joe Keenan. This book was ok, but it just didn't have the good comedic dialogue that Keenan's books do. When I read Putting on the Ritz and My Blue Heaven, I laughed my butt off throughout. While this book had some funny moments, I never experienced that full-belly-laugh moment I get with Keenan (and Ethan Mordden).
This is a delightful book. If you like the movie, "Some Like It Hot", you'll love "The Night We Met". It's extremely funny. If our main character didn't have bad luck, he'd have no luck at all.
I wanted to like this book, but didn't. The lead character of Drew was just too lame and the plot too outlandish. The dialogue worked better than the narrative, but it was still rather amateurish.
