1 cup crazy Myer triplet aka Boone Myer
1 cup snobby guppie aka Robbie Gaither
2 tbsp. nutty family and friends
1 tbsp. epic beard (no substitutions)
1 tbsp. sexual compatibility
1 tsp. misunderstandings
Preheat sexual tension to 375 Degrees. In a large American City aka Atlanta, Georgia, combine the odd ball Myer triplet, Boone, with equal parts stuffy, snobby uptight Robbie Gaither. When mostly together, add family and friends, who mean well but… bless their hearts, they try. Toss in Boone’s gorgeous beard and do not forget the intense, sometimes ridiculous attraction these two bone heads have for each other and lastly throw in two lives that seem to only get in the way of these two making each other happy. Mix until a complete chaotic mess and pour into a well lubed… check that, pour in well-greased pan and bake until very, very firm. Bake for one hour. Serve hot and eat with your fingers. Very messy, very funny and very tasty!

This is my first book by Mathew Ortiz and it won't be my last. This story landed him straight on my favorite list. I love a story full of colorful, unique characters, a funny, and fun plot and a sexy romance. This story had it all and more.
This is a book two and I haven't read this first (but am on the way to correcting that) and followed it well. I also fond out that some of the other characters are crossovers from other series( I'll have to correct that as well), but I followed along just fine.
The story is told in alternating views both Robbie and Boone. Robbie Gaither is a stuck up, snobbish man that wants to climb the corporate ladder and is well on his way. After not long in the event planning company, he is working for he gets a promotion and the best contracts. Since his family helped him in his first big event, and in his family, they all help each other; he is helping plan his cousin's wedding.
This is the opening scene and so funny! I adored his aunt Mabelle. The family is very low-country, and opposite of Robbie who is trying to be more citified. Getting the wedding cake leads him to meet Boone Meyer one of the Meyer Triplets.
Boone is very out and very queenish, the opposite of what Robbie likes in a man, but something attracts him to Boone. They meet again in a club they both frequent and sparks fly, not only do they fly they ignite one heck of a flame. Then Robbie's snooty friends interfere putting down Boone.
There is lots of back and forth where Boone is very open has no filter, yet Robbie is very self-confident and snobby. Boone is a diabetic and dealing with that as well. I also loved Boone's Mom and Maw Maw.
I loved that neither man is perfect. Robbie has to deal with his friends or love, and Boone has his health. There is lots of humor and heat in this story. The ending is sneaky. I wanted to read Cotton's story anyhow now I am dying for it! If you like contemporary gay romance, out and proud flashy characters, snobby businessmen, Event planners, bakers, a sweet romance, humor and hot man-sex, you will love this!
