    I LOVE this book. Its such a feel good read. Ian is my favorite nerdy kinda guy, a total genius but completely at a loss in the real world. Joel is just a sweetheart with the way he looks out for Ian from the start. They both have insecurities and when Ian starts thinking Joel's gonna leave him my heart broke for him, as it did when poor Manky Bastard had to go away Recommend to anyone looking for Fun, Love and that Awwww factor lolRe read and I love it even moreAAnother book that just never get [...]

    This is the first Amy Lane book I've read that I found as irritating as it was appealing. Ian is just too helpless, it is either pathological or a deliberate attempt to attract Joel, which would be too conniving to fit his supposed character. But this guy was on his own for nine years before Joel, he should know how to run out to the corner for Doritos. (A scene where he forgot to eat for two days and then bought only junk food would be okay. The existing version is over the top.) Also, writers, [...]

    Lovable and a good pick me up. Ian is in a shambolic state of disarray and wouldn't have a clue how to look after himself, coming from a genius you might think organisation is his forte. Don't be fooled he may be clever but every other aspect of his life is a mess, he hardly sleeps eats or has any sense of real time. Joel rents a room with Ian and helps to keep him balanced and maybe a bit more sane. Ian is adorable and frustrating at times I wondered how Joel didn't erupt and blow his top more [...]

    Very cute, loved it!

    Cute little story. Joel was nice, but Ian grated on my nerves. The writing was OK, but there were tons of editing errors. What's the deal with ebooks? Don't they get proofreaded before being released?

    From the Amy Lane's I've read this very true to course. A sweet angst-fest of a story that focuses on a computer programmer, Joel, and his lovably screwed up genius roommate, Ian. Cute cover!

    3.5 starsLook, peeps, this has a kitten on the cover, yeah? Need I say anything else? This was totally adorbs, fluffy, and sweet. Loved the brilliant, geeky, totally spacey Aussie, Ian, and his roommate Joel, a Hispanic computer programmer. Ian forgets to eat and clean, and perpetually meets people while he's half-naked. Joel keeps Ian's life organized and falls for Ian in the process. It's a good thing Joel's feelings are returned. This is a lovely, low-angst Lane story, like a slightly sweet, [...]

    I picked this book because of the cat cover *g*. If only the cat plays a bigger role. Anyway, the story is nice. Ian, as one of the main characters, are so messed-up *lol*. I guess having high IQ does that for you. It's interesting to see Ian and Joel together

    I can't BELIEVE I've never written a review for the AWESOMENESS that is this little storyA number of months ago Joel met Ian when he saved Ian from being crushed by weights at the gym. Joel is neat, organized, a good guy that you could meet one day while getting coffee or waiting for the bus or something. Joel's looking for somewhere to live that has character. Here's where Ian comes in. Ian's a tall, slim but muscular, certifiably mathematical genius, blonde, absentminded professor who's Austra [...]

    Mandy*reads obsessively*
    4.35*Ilovethis story. I read it originally back in 2011 and have reread it a few times since then, and realized I never wrote a review for it.I'm not really going to write one now either, I'm just going say again that Ilovethis feel good read. Ian, the lovable, brilliant, absent minded genius. Alone most of his life, no one that loves him or cares for him, and that boy needs someone to care for him.Joel, the kind, sweet, caring roommate is just the person for the job. He sees Ian, really sees hi [...]

    Joel Martinez might be in love with his roommate, Ian. But that's impossible because Joel is straight. Right? Riiiight.This is a sweet Christmas story. Ian was a little too OTT helpless but Joel was adorable and I love me a Latino MC. Too bad the Spanish is all jacked up. Unfortunately, I'm used to it and if I like the story enough I just overlook it. This however was one of three books I read in a week that was riddled with misspelled Spanish words and it bugged me. I also expect more from an A [...]

    This was cute, sweet, funny, irritating and annoying it had that awww factor I like and there was heartbreak but not the angsty kind, I will admit a couple of tears were shed. Ian made me laugh and for anyone who thinks there isn’t a real life person out there like Ian well I’m here to tell you you’re wrong and while Ian maybe a tiny bit over-the-top I thought he was the sweetest thing but could I please shake some sense into that boy? I know not going to happen and why would I want to its [...]

    I don't feel this was up to Lane's usual standards, and honestly, it would've been a lot better had it been longer. The character's are interesting enough to devote a full-length story to, so only getting a snippet of a tale made me feel shortchanged. Still, it's cute for what it is, I really liked the characters, and the friends-to-lovers theme is usually a nice standard.

    Not much I can add that hasn't been said. Heartwarming and enjoyable. I will say the author has done a great job making believable and likable characters where they could have so easily fallen into cliches in a less talented author's hands. These guys felt so real, and it made me care about them right away. One to read when you need low conflict and cheering up. Reading this is like eating chocolate :)

    Roommates to lovers One is completely in control and well organized, the other is his total opposite. Both have their own insecurities.Ian's absent-mindedness is a bit exaggerated to unbelievable proportions, but it's still a cute holiday story.

    I’m a little late in reading the Mistletoe Madness stories from Dreamspinner’s Christmas anthology but I happened to pick this one up due to the cute kitten on the cover and quirky blurb. Most novellas either leave you wanting more or tend to be forgettable, which is why this perfect story stands out among the pack. The shorter length is just right and the characters are memorable and adorable. There are a few slight issues but really they don’t matter. If you’re looking for a very fun, [...]

    Cute. One word sums it up here. I enjoyed the story and many of it's elementsbut not all of them. One major annoyance for me was a characteristic of one of the main characters, Ianhe's so smart that he's almost functionally retarded. He can't remember his scheduleointmentsif he's eatenwhen to sleep. At one point in the book his roommate comes home and he's eating cat food because he didn't see anything in the fridge.r mind looking in the freezer.Another thing that really bothered me.cially becau [...]

    Awwwww, I loved it. Joel and Ian are perfect together. I loved how Joel took care of Ian but Ian provided something for Joel too. I found it interesting that Joel's family knew his orientation before Joel even admitted it to himself, but was glad that when he realized it he was able to embrace it with out angst. I also loved the cats :DETa Loved it just as much the second time!!

    I thought it was cute and sweet. I just didn’t like the fact that Ian, who’s supposedly a genius got this crazy logic on not using condoms because “it’s not like either one of them can get pregnant.” *rolls eyes* That threw me off a little but overall, it’s a really good short read. <3

    This didn't work for me on any level. I didn't buy the supposed attraction between the two MC's. I felt zero emotion except annoyance at the overabundance of racial stereotypes. Bleh.just terrible for me.

    This is way too cute. I loved this story. Ms. Lane does it again with the sweetest two characters. I read her bio and now understand she teaches English. It's very clear she does because her books are so well written! This short story is adorable with Joel starting off as the roommate to "the little professor" Ian and becoming his lover. Ian seems to be clueless in so many ways I'm just shocked.It's not so much what Ms. Lane tells us, but how she shows us. There are so many cute examples of how [...]

    3.5 StarsThis was a short, feel-good Christmas story about a super organized computer programmer and a totally disorganized mathematical genius. Joel and Ian are opposites in so many ways but compliment one another. When Joel goes home to visit his family for Thanksgiving, the time away from Ian gives him some much needed distance to closely examine his true feelings. So when Ian calls, distraught about having to put down their beloved cat, Joel quickly hurries home to be by his side and show Ia [...]

    I just love Amy's narrative voice, and her characters. I can't help it. Whether her books are silly, sappy, or angsty, they make me feel warm and fuzzy. If I Must is a very sweet, silly, and somewhat unrealistic story which is a quick and fun read for those times when you just want to smile and not think too hard for an hour or two user Kaje Harper has a critical review of this story here. Every one of her criticisms is entirely accurate -- but I don't care. Some stories make me want to pick apa [...]

    This was an adorable read. Ian is a scatter brained genius who can barely take care of himself but has a heart of gold the size of montana. Joel gets thrown into his life when he moves in as a roommate. Eventually they adopt Manky Bastard together. Joel goes home for Thanksgiving and his family clues him in he might be having more than friendly feelings towards Ian because of how much and how he talks about him. These two men are truly adorable together and I recommend this book as a light fun r [...]

    A sweet story, that was somewhat reminiscent of Lane's latest, Talker. There is a down-to-earth, capable character taking care of the rather unworldly, innocent one - this time it's Ian, an Aussie mathematician. I found the characters incredibly endearing, and it's a sweet, entertaining yet undemanding read.The cover looks like something I had on my wall when I was 7 years old, though.

    I am not objective when it comes to Amy Lane books or stories. They are comfort reads to me even when it's the first time I am reading them. There is just something about her writing that works for me and I can't come up with more than one of her books that didn't feel like that for me even if she is pulling out my heart and running over it with a Wartenberg wheel.

    I just re-read this and I must have forgotten how awesome it was. I was left feeling all warm and toasty on the inside. It was unbelievably sweet, with wonderful characters and some genuinely lovely moments. I teared up a little too. Thanks again Amy for such a great lil' read.

    Shirley Frances
    I enjoyed this book a great deal. It was such and amazing read. Definitely going to my keep pile, to read over and over.

    Kathy
    Yes, this caught my attention because of the cover. How adorable is that kitten? But it's a really sweet story, it was worth picking up.
