Best LGBT Romantic Comedy: A Betting Man, A Marrying Man by Sandrine Gasq-Dion

Taking a quite common "romance" plot and giving it a twist: the plot of two friends betting on the chance one of the two will be able to have someone else falls in love is common, the originality here is that, usually, when the plot is unvealed, the one doing the bet is never strong enough to admit their fault and plead for forgiviness. And I said strong cause, to me, it's a proof of strenght if you are able to admit your mistake. That of Kent and Terry is the shorter story, but my favorite.

The second story follows Blaine and Spencer, respectively Kent and Terry's best friends and future groomsmen planning the wedding and falling in love in the meantime. This is maybe more traditional in its plot, but the nice twist is given by the fact that neither Blaine or Spencer are "wedding planners", actually, apparently, they aren't even "marrying types", but having to do it for their best friends will face them with unexpected developments.

I was used to Sandrine Gasq-Dion's Assassin/Shifter story, and this is a new side of her writing, more light, in a way, with less enphasis on her usual themes, and for that reason, more fluid and easier to approach, especially if you are not familiar with the author and want to try her.
