Blurb:  Find out what happens when refusing to date straight boys means turning down the man of your dreams! No Straight Boys by Cecil Wilde is a heartwarming story about friendship, love, and finding yourself via late-night text messages.

Not dating straight boys is a pretty good strategy for long-term relationships if you’re a gay man, but what happens when one particular straight boy turns out to be the man of your dreams?

Cute, funny, and sometimes borderline philosophical, No Straight Boys is about what happens when perfection isn’t what you think it is, and love is best found via late-night text message.

Review:  This book is short and sweet and a ton of fun. I couldn’t help but groan and twinge right along with these two men as they suffered unnecessary pangs of unrequited love for each other.

Ethan is a simple, quiet guy who has found career success yet been unable to find much in his personal life. He’s amiable and sweet enough that it’s never been a dramatic issue, mostly just quietly ending. He has been crushing on his neighbor, Jace, for a while now and after finally plucking up the courage to ask him out, been shot down because of Jace’s “no straight boys” rule.

Jace is adorable, quirky and very introverted. He’s a blindly jump in with both feet into relationships kind of guy. With predictable results. Hence the “no straight boys” rule. His big heart, poor relationship taste and social anxiety have caused him to become isolated and lonely. He really believes he’s saving them both heartache by not allowing them to develop a relationship. But he can’t resist the lure of friendship that Ethan offers.

I was sucked into the story, wanting to smack Jace for not seeing Ethan for the great guy he is. But isn’t that the way most of us are? We’re so afraid to be hurt again that we are terrified of allowing the good ones past our defenses. At least with the jerks we know what we are getting into.

This is a short but very enjoyable read that will have you chuckling, a little hot around the collar, charmed and smiling.
