Down on his luck is Gideon Joy’s default state. He doesn’t know why he expected anything different on his cross-country trip, but not surprisingly, the hits keep coming—literally this time. Gideon strikes a moose with his car in New Hampshire, not only totaling his own vehicle, but damaging one belonging to local construction worker Silas Bright. He has no choice but to stay in Lancaster and take a job that’ll pay for the repairs. And in a town so small, Gideon’s always running into Silas. What starts as annoyance between them soon blooms into something much more romantic. But when Gideon’s notorious bad luck rears its head yet again, how many disastrous dates will Silas be willing to weather before realizing Gideon’s not worth it?
Despite Gideon’s desire to remain in the quaint community that has accepted him as one of their own, past fears of inadequacy threaten the very joy he left Los Angeles to discover. If he’s to find a happily ever after with Silas, Gideon must learn that sometimes it’s okay to not be the best. And true happiness might be waiting in a small town nestled among the great White Mountains.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
OMG this is so freaking adorable, what's about Silas we cannot love? NONE. ZERO. NADA.
Because Silas is so damn adorable I want to wrap him and take him home.
A shy giant with a heart of gold and gay! Openly gay. And everybody loves him in a not so friendly neighborhood.
That's a quality that brought Joy to do anything for Silas, even tried breaking the rule of boring lunch and made him ate it! Fish. and Silas didn't like fish!
Because of what?He likes Joy! Awww...I kept aww-ing and ooh-ing when Silas came to my 'vision'.
Okay, I'm sounded like a creepy stalker fan-girl. But whatever, I liked Silas. Like a lot. Hahaha....
Did I say Joy did 'everything' to win Silas? Yeah, that. The LA guy even stay and determined to stay there forever, with Silas. Cute.
