Book Blurb

Dan Rorney, assistant fashion editor at Cameron Magazine in Long Beach, CA, has spared no expense -- and no name brand -- in making sure his 30th birthday cum first book release party will be a blast. Five minutes before the party kicks off, everything's looking perfect ... until his brother texts to say he can't bring the champagne.

Dan panics, but he finally manages to locate an off-sale liquor shop willing to deliver champagne at the drop of a hat. He mingles nervously with his guests as he waits for the delivery man to show up ... who turns out to be far more delicious than the drink he carries.

Book Review

Anyone who has siblings, especially those of the younger variety, will be able to relate to the sheer desperation and disappointment that Dan experiences when his younger brother doesn’t deliver the promised champagne for his 30th birthday party. Now, admittedly, Dan is very fussy and has to have everything arranged "just so", but that is a pretty big letdown. Luckily, Dan is very resourceful and manages to arrange for a replacement delivery, which turns out to be to his advantage.

Or does it? The uncertainty Dan displays when Chris, the cute delivery boy is a bit hesitant surprised me. Dan is an otherwise well-adjusted, successful man, but as the story develops it turns out he hasn’t been very lucky in the relationship department. Personally, the fact that he is so very particular about certain things, and a bit of a drama queen may have something to do with it…

Nevertheless, he is determined to find out exactly what Chris may or may not be interested in. If you like some humor with your romance, if you enjoy a couple of misunderstandings while two men try to figure out if they're interested, and if the idea of socially somewhat mismatched but physically perfectly compatible guys makes you smile, then you will probably enjoy this short story.
