Blurb: After a meet-cute in a bathroom and a whirlwind courtship, Ryan is ready to introduce Scotty to his parents.

Review: I’m not a big fan of short stories, but Amy Lane managed to give us the cute moment when Ryan and Scotty meet as well as the utterly adorable moments spent together by the established couple a few months down the road.
Ryan is a formerly straight man who finally finds the spark when he meets Scotty at a party. There’s no hesitation on his part, no arguments and debates about gay versus straight, because the connection he has with Scotty is one he would never and could never question.
Ryan and Scotty are very different from each other but they’re absolutely perfect together and the glimpses we get throughout their fast-paces 4 months long relationship are precious, fun, and dirty as hell, complete with rimming, sex, blowjobs and popping the cherry, not exactly in that order.
I loved this short story, it was fluffy and sweet and almost cheesy, such a difference from the angst-laden Amy Lane world, but it was utterly adorable.
