With friends like these . . .
An ill-advised encounter at the office party leaves David Greenlake jobless and homeless in one heady weekend. But he quickly begs work from his ex-boss and takes a room in Shamwell with easygoing postman Rory Deamer. David doesn’t mean to flirt with the recently divorced Rory—just like he doesn’t consciously decide to breathe. After all, Rory’s far too nice for him. And far too straight.

Rory finds his new lodger surprisingly fun to be with, and what’s more, David is a hit with Rory’s troubled children. But while Rory’s world may have turned upside down in the last few years, there’s one thing he’s sure of: he’s straight as a die. So he can’t be falling for David . . . can he?

Their friends and family think they know all the answers, and David’s office party hookup has his own plans for romance. Rory and David need to make up their minds and take a stand for what they really want—or their love could be over before it’s even begun.

    Kurzmeinung: Heartwarming, sweet, domestic, funny. Character-driven slow burn romance of a camp young man with a straight divorced dad
    Pure heartwarming, sweet, cuddly fun

    An unfortunate fling at an office party leaves David work- and homeless. He finds himself im Shamwell with a job from his former coworker and renting a small room from the divorced postman Rory. The two of them get along unexpectedly well and David also likes Rory's two kids, that he only has every other weekend. But Rory is as straight as a die, so there's no point in developing a crush on him, or is there?

    I adored this one, though I have to admit I didn't read the rest of the series.

    As I read the preview I was afraid David would be a bit much. It felt like the author just piled on the quirks. The innuendo, the flirting, the french, a costumed teddy bear that he takes out and about, a named car... it felt like too much. But he does mellow out very quickly, luckily. Especially with Rory David doesn't feel so put on anymore.
    But while I liked David well enough, I really loved Rory most. He's just such a cuddly bear: honest, hard-working and thoroughly good-hearted. And even though he's not the brightest bulb in the basket he's not really stupid either and he tries to understand and keep an open mind even though his best friend Barry keeps feeding him homophobic bullshit lines. And he's not a push-over either and sticks up for what he feels is right, without undue fuss.

    It's a pretty slow burn, but I enjoyed the dialog between the two a lot, the domestic scenes with the kids or just them hanging out and having fun. Rory slowly figuring out he might just like David as more than a friend and how one goes about that, it was really sweet and adorable.
    There's not really any drama there, any tension and angst at all is from both of them not quite having the balls to tell the other how they feel, but as the situation was, that did not feel contrived or forced to me.

    So yeah, this is just pure heartwarming, sweet, cuddly fun. I enjoyed it immensely for that.
