Re-release of best-selling 2009 novel – What happens when Rory travels halfway across the country to meet the girl of his dreams? Certainly not what he expected.
Rory’s just a simple southern boy from St. Antoine’s Parish, Louisiana, but he knows what he wants – the girl of his dreams, reclusive and mysterious artist Ran Yamane. He’s loved her since junior high school, and now he has the chance to meet her. He chucks everything and travels 1,500 miles to Anime Expo in Long Beach just so he can tell her. He’s determined that nothing and nobody are going to stand in his way.
Turns out, Ran Yamane isn’t a girl, but he gets that a lot. People come to him with teddy bears and chocolates and disappointment by the truckload. He’s trusted fans in the past and paid the price. So when he meets Rory he is understandably wary, but resigned. He isn’t prepared for his magnetic attraction to the young man, Rory’s apparent willingness to overlook his gender, and the chaos that ensues when his number one fan (and psycho stalker) shows up to get revenge.
This book had some of the best characters I’ve read in awhile. I left the
book more than a little in love with hunky Cajun leading man Rory. The
characters and their relationship just felt very real. It’s a rare book
where I really understand why the characters fall in love. These guys just
clicked and you can feel the connection. The action and adventure is
exciting and captivating. I now want to read all of Maxfield’s books and
Greg Boudreaux’s narration brought the characters to vibrant life. Highly
