Brad is a player, happy with filling his map with men he's been with, until he meets awkward but cute British nerd James, who at first is just someone with whom he can check four places on his map. They hit it off, bonding over their mutual love of The Goonies and Short Circuit, and Brad finds himself unable to go after anyone else after being with James and James finds himself opening up to another person, when he's always preferred to just lose himself in his computer. Soon more things are heating up than just the hot weather hitting the little town of Astoria. But their relationship has an expiration date and time is going by so quickly, will they be able to find a solution before James has to leave at the end of summer?
Both Brad and James were flawed and realistic, and while they both messed up, they fixed most of their issues with the help of some mildly meddling friends and family. They were likable and had good chemistry.
The story is well-written and entertaining. It's told from both MC's points of view, which was odd at times, since Brad is American and James is British, so it was a bit of a mix-up of the two styles.
I really liked the supporting cast of characters, especially Rory and the ladies that visited the store where Brad worked. They really added depth to the book.
All in all, it was a fast, fun read. Recommendable!
