Synopsis for The One That I want:
Jason escapes into the magic of a Broadway play every weekend. Musicals always have a happy ending and for a few hours he can believe there’s a happy ending waiting for him, too. When the tall drink of water who works on the top floor of Jason’s building, wants to take him on a date, Jason is surprised. After all, Jason is awkward and skinny, and sees himself as a boring accountant, while Paul is tall, dark, and incredibly hot.
Despite Jason’s reservations, Paul and Jason start dating and attending the shows Jason adores. But if Paul likes musicals as much as Jason, why does he always doze off? Is Paul leading a double life? Does he have a wife tucked away somewhere?
Jason knows Paul is hiding something and when the secrets come out, Jason finds his fantasy comes to life, right there on the stage.
HERE IS CLAUDIA'S REVIEW:


I LOVE THIS QUOTE CLAUDIA USED, HERE IS HER REVIEW:

Jason always considered himself boring, regular looking, skinny, not worth of a second glance… or so he thought…

 

When he find himself accosted by the tall, gorgeous guy on his work’s place elevator, he thought that it must be a mistake or the guy felt sorry for him.

 

Meeting Paul where he least expected – on a Broadway play – makes him decide to give Paul a chance… after all, he had nothing to lose besides his heart!

 

It’s so cute to see how far Paul will go to charm Jason, and woo him… He’ll even look like a fool, since it’ll bring a smile to Jason’s face.

 

But Paul is not being totally truthful to Jason, and when his secret comes forward, he’ll have to prove he’s still trustworthy and that there was a real reason for it.

 

This is a really sweet book, and even being a short one, was a delightful read…

HERE IS AN EXCERPT THAT I THINK YOU GUYS WILL GET A KICK OUT OF:
WAITING IN line for my drink during intermission, I felt a hand on the small of my back. “I never thought I’d see you here. Are you with someone?” I turned around and came face to face with Mr. I’ll-give-him-tickets-because-he’s-a-sad-loser. Why did I have to run into him in my favorite place in the entire city? Wasn’t the city big enough for the two of us?
Musicals were my escape, my happy ending. After being thrown out of home for being “perverted, unnatural, and against God,” I escaped to the theater. There were always happy endings in musicals and for only a couple of hours, I could believe there was a happy ending waiting for me too.
“I’m Paul.” He stuck his hand out and it was only because I was brought up to be polite that I shook it. He didn’t release his hold.
“Jason.”
“Jason, it’s nice to finally know your name. You didn’t answer my question, Jason.” He said my name like he was rolling it around on his tongue, savoring it.
Paul didn’t let go of my hand until I tugged it hard enough he had to release me, or look like an idiot trying to arm wrestle while standing in a crowded theater.
“No, I’m not here with anyone.” I moved forward in the line a bit. I really needed that drink.
“Do you always come to the theater by yourself?”
“Yes.” I looked around. “Do you?” I tried for smug but I don’t think it worked.
He chuckled. “I have a spare seat next to me that was supposed to be yours. You ran off yesterday morning before I had a chance to ask you to join me.”
“You were going to ask me to join you? Like a date?” I was gobsmacked. “Exactly like a date. What did you think I was going to ask you?”
I shook my head. “Doesn’t matter.”
“Would you like to join me? I’m near the front, excellent view.”
I had a cheap seat with restricted viewing, thanks to a huge pillar in my way, but it wasn’t like I hadn’t seen the show before. I spent nearly every Saturday night going to shows on Broadway, and sometimes I was lucky enough to catch two in one night.
“Can I sing?”
“Umm, sing?”
“Yes, I won’t be able to stop myself. If this is something that will embarrass you then it’s okay, I’ll go back to my own seat.” Paul might as well know what he was in for if I sat with him. It wasn’t like he was asking for a relationship, God forbid, so if he couldn’t handle me singing along, I’d be happier back in my cheap seat by myself.
I was at the head of the line so I placed my order while Paul thought about whether or not he still wanted me to sit with him. I ordered a wine, and he ordered a beer. He insisted on paying for both.
“Thank you,” I said, once we’d stepped out of the way of the other theater-goers.
“You’re welcome. Follow me, I’m down this way.”
“Umm, okay.” I wasn’t sure I would be able sing along now, knowing he’d be sitting beside me and would hear my caterwauling.

NOW HERE IS THE BOOK INFO FOR HOPELESSLY DEVOTED; FOLLOWED BY CLAUDIA'S REVIEW AND LINKS:



Hopelessly Devoted
One year on from Paul's proposal, Jason is living a life he never dreamed of. As he fusses with his tie and readies to walk down the aisle, he reminisces about the previous twelve months. It hasn't all been smooth sailing for the happy couple in the lead up to their wedding, with obstacles big and small thrown in their way. 

Marrying one of New York’s most eligible bachelors has Jason’s stomach in knots. Expectations of their society wedding are high, but out of love for Paul, Jason goes along with the grand plans because he understands Paul’s family has a reputation to maintain. But Paul has a surprise up his sleeve that just may see Jason getting the wedding of his dreams. 

Follow Jason on his journey as he prepares to marry one of the most eligible bachelors in New York and find out just how Dave got his name.
HERE IS CLAUDIA'S REVIEW:

I was pleasantly surprised to know that there was a sequel to “The one I want” – this cute couple so deserved a sequel!

After one year together, Paul and Jason’s wedding day finally arrived, but, even marrying the man of his dreams, Jason’s life is not only roses…

Being together on a day by day routine, showed them the struggles, adaptations, concessions that they would have to face if they want their relationship to work.  They will get some things right, others wrong, but ultimately, they’ll learn that all decisions must be made together to work.

Paul, always the romantic one, will do his best to make their marriage more than unforgettable for Jason. 

This is such a great sequel - I had an amazing time reading it.

HEHE THIS SURE SEEMS LIKE A CUTE SERIES, I CAN'T WAIT TO READ IT: HERE IS A BIO ON RJ AND HER SOCIAL LINKS:
R.J. Jones started as a reader and eventually made the progression to reviewing. It wasn’t until two men popped into her thoughts, insisting on telling her their story that she started to write.
It started with one scene. A hot and dirty one in the shower…
R.J.’s initial thought was if she could write their scene then they’d shut up and allow her to concentrate on other aspects of her day. Not so. That shower scene ended up being 3000 words long and three hours of work.  And still, they didn’t shut up.  They told her their entire story and she didn’t sleep for days. Sometimes she couldn’t keep up with what they were telling her and she had to keep a notebook by her bed.
Whilst she was writing their story a side character decided he needed his story told too. Then other characters followed suit.
You see the problem? If she ever wants to sleep again then she needs to write.
R.J. is a wife and a mother to two boys. She is surrounded by males. Even her dog is a boy.
