Summary:  ho knew the bandana Reece wears, and uses, everyday could cause so much trouble? On a rare evening off from work, Reece decides to head for the only gay bar close by. Whilst there, he finds out that the unsuspecting gay man should carry a color chart on nights out.

Review:   You’re interested in how a simple thing as a bandana could make for an interesting night, this is a book you should definitely read. It is as funny as it might have sounded when you first read the blurb and while the rush doesn’t last, it is still something good to add to your reading list.

Reece is young, a bit naïve and very innocent. Spending most of his life on a dairy farm, following his brother and his best friend around like a lost puppy left little time for anything else. Not that the isolation of the farm provided a lot of opportunity when it came to finding that perfect guy. Besides, Reece already has a perfect guy in mind, Lane, that same best friend of his brother, who unfortunately is leaving for New York in too short a time.

So one night out, a misunderstanding and a longtime dream come true, leave us with a couple who is using whatever time they’ve got to make the best of it.

I loved the beginning of this story. I was laughing out loud at a pretty late hour full of expectations on what would happen next and slowly getting smitten with the characters. Only the intensity of the beginning didn’t last, and the further down the road the guys sort of lost a bit of that magic to me. It was still interesting and they are a couple that will make you cheer for them, but a lack of detail and not enough history when it came to the characters flipped this story from amazing to just good. The ending was another tripping point for me because it was resolved too quickly and too conveniently.

There was a lot more that could have been done with this story, but if you feel like laughing you should take this on. It’s so worth it. Cute little thing.
