Mmmm. This was so good. Almost 5 stars. Can't really put my finger on why it's not. But the writing is dreamy and I loved the main character, Lorenzo Maryboy. He's the kind of guy you want to make breakfast for in the morning.
I loved how little angst there was in the beginning. (There's a little bit of angst later on, but it's good.) Jesse and Lorenzo end up sharing studio space at Jesse's grandfather's house - Jesse is a painter and Lorenzo is a cartoonist. I assumed most of this book would be about them arguing and feeling all entitled and annoyed at the other for being there, but that was not the case. They get along well from the beginning and are more than happy to share the space. It was a low key, easy kind of falling in love and it was perfect.
The characters are great. I love the theme of one grounded, simple type of person falling in love with that untameable free spirit and just having to learn how to not hold on too tight. I highly recommend this book.
