2015 Rainbow Awards Submission: The 10 Year book by JC Calciano

The 10 Year book by JC Calciano
Gay Romantic Comedy
Publisher: NYLA; 1 edition (October 15, 2015)
Amazon Kindle: The 10 Year book

Back when…
Best friends Myles and Brody are total opposites: Myles believes in true love and happily ever after; Brody believes in hot guys and lots of happy endings. But after Myles has a particularly bad date, they make a plan that, if they haven’t found true love in 10 years they’ll become a couple.

10 years later…
Nothing has changed. Myles is still a hopeless romantic looking for Mr. Right and Brody is still on the hunt for Mr. Right Now – both still alone. When they realize it’s almost time to make good on the promise they made to each other a decade earlier, both friends scramble to do whatever it takes to avoid their fate: to be a couple!

The search for each other’s perfect partner is on! But maybe the man of their dreams is too close to see…

This book also contains special extra content, including:
* Myles’ Favorite Recipes
* Images From the Movie The 10 Year Plan

I’ve seen the movie and it was a happy surprise to see a book was written and it was just as great as the script.

This was a great story. The plot was excellent. The characters were engaging, believable, relateable, the scenarios presented within the novel were true to life and the dialogue presented was lively, entertaining, and realistic. In an age where there are so many gay/bi men content to use the Grindr app for purely physical, one-night stands, while other gay/bi men are looking for their happily ever after it was nice to read about two men who end up finding it together and how they both ended up where they were.  I did love the fact that the author included the recipes that Myles used in the story at the end of the book and then some Do's and Dont's thoughts from Brody as well.
