A Why I Love…. Novel
As a member of a covert military unit, John Davidson isn’t scared of much. Yet one look into Heath Kane’s dark blue eyes and he knows a different kind of fear for the first time. John can’t be gay, at least not out and proud in his unit, even with Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell repealed. He’s never been interested enough in any man to risk the fallout.
Heath’s hometown wasn’t the best place for a gay kid to grow up, but his grandmother did her darnedest to make it good for him. Now he’s paying her back for all her love. She’s getting older and needs help, so he returns home to wait tables at the Corner Café while taking online courses to get his degree. Even though the Army base provides him with a lot of buff eye candy, he knows it’s best to keep his head down.
Neither Heath nor John can deny their attraction, and John’s finally willing to act on their mutual interest. But holding on to each other will mean big changes in both their lives.

Why I Love Waiters was a fun fluff piece that left me feeling warm and fuzzy. John was easy to connect with and I was pulling for him from the very beginning. Heath was lovable and so funny. His tendency towards innocence and his word vomit made for great comic relief. I found myself laughing out loud quite often.
I will admit that I felt this story was VERY similar in structure to book one and that bugged me a bit. Both brothers were almost the same in temperament and their love interests were basically identical personality twins. It made it a bit hard to read because when Herb and Heath got together, things turned almost into a word vomit mess.
However, this story was still easy to read and enjoyable. It had heart and humor and definitely deserves to be reread and be placed in my feel-good read pile.
