I LOVE THIS QUOTE FOR THIS BOOK! HERE IS MY REVIEW:
Empty Nests (Nested Hearts #1) by: Ada Marie Soto
reviewed by: Becky
Neither James nor Gabe has ever had a real relationship. They might make a connection if they can get past their differences—and their fears.
At age fourteen, James Maron decided to prove he wasn’t gay despite vast evidence to the contrary. Now at thirty-two, he’s getting ready to send his son to college and wondering what he’s supposed to do next. Outside his son, his life consists of an IT job he hates and watching telenovelas with the women in his apartment building.
Gabriel Juarez is the CFO of a technology giant. He has looks, charm, fantastic wealth, a workaholic personality, and a string of boyfriends who only stick around because he’s too busy to tell them to leave.
A bad laptop/projector interface causes James and Gabe’s paths to cross. Friends, family, and coworkers jump to match Gabe with a nice guy, and James with anyone. But are they too different? Everyone will have to tread very carefully to keep things from ending before they start.
This is my first book by this author, and I love her style and depth of character, you see the many levels of these two men, and it is amazing when an author can do that.
James feels like he is floundering, he is about to send his son off to college, and he knows he needs something more (as Dylan reminds him :P), but life revolved around his son for so long that at 32, he has no idea how to begin to live his life based on what he wants.
Gabriel works way to hard, but it is his passion, and his life. Men come and go, once he can be bothered to tell them to split and that is the way he wants it, isn't it? He thinks so, until he meets James.
Can these two men from totally different worlds make it work, as much as everyone around them can see they belong together, will old habits die too hard to make a go at a relationship?
You have to read this one friends, I am eagerly awaiting book 2! Thank you Ada, for making my first book of yours such a pleasure to read!

“So,” Dylan started as he scraped the last of the noodles from his plate. “Remember that conversation we were having about the new AP English teacher?”
“If you pull a piece of paper out of your pocket right now, I will never forgive you.”
Dylan grinned and pulled a tightly folded piece of paper from his pocket. “Saturday after next, if you want, you have a date.”
James was pretty sure teenagers were not supposed to be as hung-up on their father’s love life as Dylan was. “No. No, I do not.”
Dylan pushed over a printout from his school’s faculty webpage. There was a phone number handwritten at the bottom. “Thirty-five, no kids. He likes music.” Dylan had highlighted that line. “You like music, he likes music. He said he’d love to take you to see a band he likes.”
“Goddammit, Dylan! I do not need you setting me up with strangers.”
“He’s not a stranger, he’s the school’s AP English teacher, and I wouldn’t have to if you’d get out of the house once in a while. Seriously, Dad, I’m out of here in less than a year. I don’t want you moping around this place alone. I worry about you turning into a crazy old cat lady.”
