Too Stupid to Live is a fun and sweet romance with some laugh out loud moments. Sam is a self-proclaimed nerd. He is in graduate school and waits tables to get by. He loves romance novels and daydreams of his own macho, gorgeous hero coming to whisk him off of his feet one day.
Ian is a hot, athletic, ex-firefighter. He has recently moved to the area and is trying to restart his life. He's beginning a new career and he has moved away from his family so he can "come out" and not live his life hiding who he is. Ian has always been against committed relationships and is not looking for one now.
Two chance meetings bring Sam and Ian together and what begins as nothing more than hot sex quickly becomes more complicated. Both of the main characters were really likable. Sam in particular was adorable. You just couldn't help but feel for him and the difficulties that he goes through. He struggles with his own self esteem as he works on building the relationship.
Ian also has struggles learning to be who he is. He says he is "out of the closet" but when it comes to actually putting that into his everyday life he finds it is not as easy as he thought it would be. Ian also struggles with learning what he wants out of a relationship.
I really liked the two of them together. They were really different personalities and they each had unique ways of handling their problems. Both characters were done well and they clicked in their scenes together. These two were also smoking hot in their bedroom scenes. This book was a little hotter and a little naughtier than some of this author's other works and I liked that also.
Overall this was a good read. It has sweet scenes, funny scenes and sexy scenes. You'll finish it with a smile on your face and that feel good feeling you get when you finish a well done love story.
Sam’s a new man. Yes, he’s still too tall, too skinny, too dorky, too gay, and has that unfortunate addiction to romance novels, but he’s wised up. His One True Love is certainly still out there, but he knows now that real life is nothing like fiction. He’s cultivated the necessary fortitude to say “no” to the next Mr. Wrong, no matter how hot, exciting, and/or erotic-novel-worthy he may be.
Until he meets Ian.
Ian’s a new man. He’s pain-free, has escaped the job he hated and the family who stifled him, and is now—possibly—ready to dip his toe into the sea of relationships. He’s going to be cautious, though, maybe start with someone who knows the score and isn’t looking for anything too complicated. Someone with experience and simple needs that largely revolve around the bedroom.
Until he meets Sam.
Sam’s convinced that Ian is no one’s Mr. Right. Ian’s sure that Sam isn’t his type. They can’t both be wrong...can they?
