Family Man - Heidi Cullinan, Marie Sexton

This is a sweet and longish novella. Both leads are interesting in their own right. Vincent with the huge Italian family who after a third short lived marriage is rethinking his whole life. Trey is having it hard, taking care of his grand mother and alcoholic mother works two jobs and trying very hard to finish his degree.

The way the relationship evolves has a fairy tale feel to it. So is the ending. But it's sweet, tender, the family relationships of both Vincent and Trey are well done. This is a short but sweet read.
