If you are looking for a cute gay romance story, Quinn Anderson has a new book that just published just a few days ago called All of the Above. Brendon wants to check “true love” off his to-do list and thinks Matt might be the perfect guy for him. Now all he needs to do is actually meet him! I received one copy of this book at no charge in exchange for my honest reviews but all opinions expressed here are my own. Want more books by this author?

Brendon isn’t in a rut, per se—he just always seems to be in-between things. Jobs. Degrees. Boyfriends. He never finishes what he starts. The perfect path is out there somewhere, and if he can just figure out what it is, he’s certain everything else will fall into place.
The last thing he expects is to meet his soul mate in the pages of a magazine quiz. “Who Is Your Perfect Man?” by Matthew Kingston seems like a road map to his future husband: the author himself. Brendon may not have his life figured out, but if Matt is as romantic as his quiz, Brendon can check “true love” off his to-do list.
When Brendon fakes a meet-cute between them, Matt proves to be as wonderful as he hoped. The more Brendon gets to know him, the harder he falls. But Brendon has a confession to make: how can he explain to Matt that he arranged their “fated” meeting? Brendon can’t tell if he’s found his soul mate, heartache, or all of the above.
Okay, so, I have read several books by Quinn Anderson and have loved most of them but this one just didn’t grab me. It’s a cute gay romance story with well-developed characters and a nice happily ever after, however, there were just a few things I didn’t love about this story.
Brandon is a bit of a flake, I think. He is just meandering through life without a lot of direction. After trying a few career paths with no success, he is currently working at a mall hair kiosk as he goes to school to become a hairdresser. He doesn’t really seem to ‘love’ it but seems to be just making time no knowing what else to do.
Matt is a writer of a popular quiz that is published in a local magazine. When Brandon takes his latest quiz about finding your soul mate, he thinks Matt is ‘the one’. Personally, I thought Matt was judgemental and rude and really didn’t care for his character at all.
So, basically, Brandon has to find out how to first MEET Matt and then actually have the two of them fall in love. That is pretty much most of the plot except that their whole introduction starts out based on a lie which is a huge pet peeve of mine. Brandon does come clean about the lie very early in the book, though, which I really appreciated or probably would not have continued reading it.
The romance between these guys starts off with a lie since Brandon has been stalking Matt and there is a big deception involved. However, after a rocky start, they seem to get things moving and feelings develop slowly. It was a realistic pace for a relationship, I think, with no insta love or falling into bed on day 3 of knowing each other.
I really enjoyed the epilogue and it gave a nice look at their lives together a bit down the road.
Overall, this is a cute gay romance story but not one of my favorites. Technically well written and an easy read but just isn’t going on my ‘to be read again’ list.
