Paul is in a bind. His house has flooded…again…and he needs a place to stay. It’s just that there aren’t many options for him to choose from. Except Trevor. And Trevor’s a nice guy, but he’s gay and rather obvious about it. And it’s not that Paul has a problem with gay people, he’s just not sure he’s comfortable staying with one in such close quarters. But when all other options exhaust themselves–and as Paul realizes he is maybe being just a bit unfair to his colleague–he takes Trevor up on his offer for a place to crash. What Paul doesn’t expect is that he will learn a lot more about Trevor and about his preconceptions of gay guys than he ever thought he would. Of course, he also doesn’t expect that he’s about to learn something even more unexpected about himself…

This is a charming and entertaining read. Some of Paul’s reactions, especially early on, are a bit humorous. And it is interesting to watch his journey as he starts to come to some unexpected realizations. With our identities being self-constructed based on social influences, it is easy for us to think that our own experiences are universal. But not everyone gets to the same place in the same way, and stories that help us see the perspective of another person help to enrich the ways in which we view the world. That’s probably a bit deeper analysis than the author intended, but I kept it brief–especially for those of you who are just in it for the steamy scenes, of which there are a few to keep you interested…
