Blurb: Don’t discount the mystic powers in the world…
Casey has spent most of his adult life building a successful business. His mother has been on him to settle down with a good man. Casey would, but he hasn’t had time to look for one. On his fortieth birthday, he goes out with friends and gets drunk—and has one too many.
When he wakes up in the morning, there’s a sexy, strange man in his home and a new, kind of painful tattoo on Casey’s chest. He doesn’t remember what happened the night before, but it doesn’t take him long to realize that the stranger, Ed, is someone he wants to get to know much better.
Now, if the fates and stars and all that mystical stuff will align, Casey and Ed might have their Happily Ever After, with the help of a mysterious tattoo artist and a vanishing tattoo shop.
Review: Well this was just a lot of silliness and fun and ooey gooey lovey dovey insta-love-ness.
From the very start, our MCs meet and the third or fourth sentence they say to one another is something about “I don’t want to do this unless it’s gonna be forever”.
Casey gets drunk on his birthday and Ed is the cab driver who takes him home. They have never met before, but they know they’re attracted to one another. A lot. But before they even try dating, Ed makes Casey promise that he’ll give “forever” a shot.
The tattoo was a predictable but fun paranormal bit. Casey (while drunk) gets the sudden urge to get a tattoo. He can’t find the shop again afterward.
Ed decides that the way to “keep things slow” between them is to date – which means they can have sleepovers but no penetrative sex.
So, you see, there are a lot of issues with this story – and you’d think that meant I didn’t like it. That’s not true! I actually thought it was super fun and enjoyed it very much. It’s short, and I think if you just accept that it’s not going to be even a bit realistic, you’ll enjoy it as much as I did!
Overall Impression: I really liked it
