Nye Havers is in his forties and has given up on love. Life hasn’t done him any favors, and his acerbic nature has just gotten worse over time. He rides a bicycle to work, gets splashed by cars in the rain, and is constantly in trouble because he can’t resist being a smart mouth.He is the co-owner of a small courier service that has sadly become his life. But there is one surprisingly bright spot in his world, even if Nye feels he doesn’t have a chance in hell of getting the guy.The guy, Donal Soames, is a client. He and Nye encounter each other on occasion, but when Nye is his usual snappish self, he ruins everything. Nye has to learn to curb his snarky behavior and catch a clue, because the love he’s been looking for might just get away.EXCERPT:
I seriously snorted my tea reading this story. So funny with the quips. Nye is definitely snarky and I love it so much. But it wasn’t just funny, it was intimate and romantic. It was incredibly sweet and awkward a bit with two distinct personalities trying to find their way.
Nye says what thinks no matter what. He has that no filter thing going on. The problem is the one person he doesn’t want to be that way with, kind of brought it out in him when he didn’t mean to. Nye has crushed on Donal for a while, but felt really out of his league. And the last ‘entanglement’ they had, left Nye saying something kind of mean. He left a message and apologized, but hadn’t heard from Donal really since. Until one day, he came in and asked for a date. Shocked, Nye accepted and they started to get to know one another. Taking a chance on each other even though they were scared.
Oh how I love Nye lol. I can appreciate where he comes from though. He is who he is and it’s not always easy to deal wit
