Publisher's Summary

Beautifully tender and unforgettably funny, prepare to fall in love with this modern-day nod to a classic romantic comedy.   

Ever since their chance encounter as seatmates on the plane ride from hell, Harry “Harrison” Fields and Harry “Henry” Lee have had a love-hate relationship. But every time their paths have crossed over the years, they’ve grown to like each other more and more, even developing an unlikely friendship.  

Now, Harrison is a fun-loving music teacher who wears his heart on his sleeve, and Henry is a hard-driving business man who’s still striving to get out of his father’s shadow. 

As they go through life’s inevitable heartaches and losses, their friendship only deepens. Sure, there’s always been a simmering attraction between them, but nothing worth threatening their friendship over...until one of them takes things too far. But when a valuable friendship hangs in the balance, is a chance at romance worth the price?

Just not for me I guess...

I was so looking forward to this book but only minutes into it, I knew I was going to struggle to finish it. I am just not a fan of this type of third person narrative, If this had been written in first, I probably would have loved the story. In the first hour I bet there were over 100 "Harry" said & "Harrison" said and I struggle to not notice it every time. Also sadly the weird "tinkling music" between chapters was not for me, I found it pulled me right out of the story every time.
For me the best thing about this audiobook was Teddy Hamilton, if not for him, I probably wouldn't have made it past the first few chapters.

Disappointing

I listened to this story because I really love Teddy Hamilton. He and Malcolm do a terrific job of narration. I liked both the main characters but was frustrated with the course of their romance. It takes 3/4 of the book for them to get together and immediately after, Henry backs off because of fear?
Insecurity? A non loving relationship with his father? I just didn’t get why he was so reluctant to be with Harrison. This “I want you but I can’t have you” goes in for months in the story! Henry’s dysfunctional relationship with his father went completely unresolved. All in all I spent too much time in angst and too little time enjoying resolution. Do NOT get this book if you enjoy specific description of romantic/sexual activity. Sex between Harrison and Henry is glossed over. The reader is informed that Harrison had difficulty walking following sex. Disappointing.

A romantic comedy that forgot the comedy.

This is a color-by-numbers trope fest that has not one single legitimate laugh, despite lifting its plot in whole from one of the greatest romantic comedies of all time. No wit. No sparkling banter. No chemistry between the main characters, who are little more than cyphers. Shallow and, frankly... insulting. Save your hard earned credit and get something by KJ Charles, TJ Klune or Lily Morton.

Ecstatic!!!

The book is fresh, fun, lovable and perfect for the summer chill! I'd gladly recommend it to everyone who likes romantic novels and doesn't shy away from the LGBTQ. Loved it!

Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan would approve

This sweet, sometimes heartbreaking, story inspired by When Harry Met Sally would make Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan smile. It’s a slow burn that does justice to the phrase so often used in proposals and wedding vows, “I fell in love with my best friend, my soulmate.”

For anyone who has not heard these narrators before, you’ll enjoy their performance. Teddy Hamilton is one of my favorites, and I think they did a great job with the characters.

Enjoyed this SO much!

Wonderful narration!
Malcolm Young was new to me, and it initially took me a moment to get used to his sound following Teddy’s...but I really liked him. I’ve heard quite a few books with Teddy in the past, but this was one of his best. He was so freaking good in this...and the end of chapter 20 should put him up for some sort of award. I’ve gone back to listen to that segment 3x just to experience the full range of emotion. It brought me to tears on my first listen. I really loved the story too! New to me author who I’ll definitely be keeping an eye out for.

Just Wow

What a great story. A wonderful slow burn that really gets you attached to all the characters. It's very well developed, well narrated, well written. I thoroughly loved it. I enjoy books that have a nice long plot, and a slow burn where you really get into the book. This is exactly that. I can't believe it's on Audible Escape, I've had a hard time finding good books on here, especially in the LGBT group. But this is great if you're looking for this kind of book.

A Couple of Minutes Does Not a Romance Make

This book is really just 8 hours or so of contrived tension. The two main characters meet at the beginning of the book, and then it's just hours and hours of them being adjacent to once another but not hooking up, or hooking up and regretting it. It's insufferably boring. Beyond insufferable, actually. There was no joy in it at all—unless you consider a romance resolving itself in the final 15 minutes to be anything but miserable. I hated this book and I cannot describe my hatred for one of its main characters.

The narration would've been okay, but one of the main characters is from Singapore. So why have two narrators if neither of them has an accent that could even remotely pass for a person from Singapore... or even anywhere in Asia?
