Emmett Gant was planning to tell his father something really important one Sunday morning—but his father passed away first. Now, nearly three years later, Emmett can’t seem to clear up who he should be with—the girl with the apple cheeks and the awesome family, or his snarky neighbor, Keegan, who never sees his family but who makes Emmett really happy just by coming over to chat.
Emmett needs clarity.
Fortunately for Emmett, his best friend’s mom has a cookbook that promises to give Emmett insight and good food, and Emmett is intrigued. After the cookbook follows him home, Emmett and Keegan decide to make the recipe “For Clarity,” and what ensues is both very clear—and a little surprising, especially to Emmett’s girlfriend. Emmett is going to have to think hard about his past and the really important thing he forgot to tell his father if he wants to get the recipe for love just right.
Review: This was just brilliant. Like Keegan said, there is something genuine about Emmett that is so sweet that you can’t dislike him even when he is being an idiot. And keegan. Oh beautiful, patient, kind, Keegan.
I definitely cried a bit but I wouldn’t say it’s angsty. All the crying was related to family, heart-break, and loss. But interspersed between moments of sweetness and joy. And some hot, hot sex.
The fun little magical twist and Emmett’s extended family through Vinnie’s friendship rounded out a wonderful story.
