Publisher's Summary

A fresh, charming romantic comedy perfect for fans of Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda and Boy Meets Boy about Nathan Bird, who has sworn off happy endings but is sorely tested when his former best friend, Ollie, moves back to town.

Nathan Bird doesn’t believe in happy endings. Although he’s the ultimate film buff and an aspiring screenwriter, Nate’s seen the demise of too many relationships to believe happy endings exist in real life.

Playing it safe to avoid a broken heart has been his MO ever since his father died and left his mom to unravel - but this strategy is not without fault. His best friend turned girlfriend turned best friend again, Florence, is set on making sure Nate finds someone else. And in a twist that is rom-com-worthy, someone does come along: Oliver James Hernández, his childhood best friend.

After a painful mix-up when they were little, Nate finally has the chance to tell Ollie the truth about his feelings. But can Nate find the courage to pursue his own happily ever after?

Good with some clunky parts

I enjoyed the book overall. It felt real and less formulaic relative to other books in this genre. The characters felt real. However, I got distracted by the clunky story-telling and some of the behaviors that didn't seem to ring true or consistent at times. The drama felt manufactured and the writer didn't allow the character development to unfold naturally, especially in the emotional sense, particularly in the main protagonist. I appreciate the description of the sign language, but it was a little distracting, too. In the end, it had some very strong parts and it held together well.
