Sometimes, one stubborn Capricorn is all it takes… to drive Wesley Hidaka to crazy, flirtatious lengths.
Wesley loves annoying his RA, Lloyd Reynolds. He just can’t help it. Lloyd is focused, decisive, grounded. He has this amusing ability to follow rules.
Of course Wesley wants Lloyd to break one… or three hundred.
Sometimes, one smirking Gemini is all it takes… to have Lloyd laying down the law and marching Wesley straight back to his dorm room.
It doesn’t stop Wesley teasing again. And again. And again…
But damn. Lloyd doesn’t crack easily. He’s full of principles. He’s unshakable.
He’s the perfect friend to have when Wesley needs help. Like with his truant brother and his old high school principal.
Sometimes, one little lie is all it takes… to find Wesley fake-engaged to his off-limits RA.
What can he say? It seemed like a good idea at the time…
“Gemini Keeps Capricorn” serves up a double shot of cluelessness, with a side of rock’n’roll and topped with a slow burn HEA.
It can be read as a standalone.
Tropes: friends-to-lovers, slow burn, will-they-or-won’t-they, fake fiancé
Genre: New Adult, light-hearted contemporary gay romance.
This series is a pure joy to read. When I pick up an Anyta Sunday story, I know, unequivocally, that I’m about to be faced with the most perfectly-paced slow burn romance out there. In my mind, she’s unrivalled in this area. And I don’t usually like reading Romances.
The dialogue is always fun and playful, filled flirtatiousness that knows no bounds. It serves to keep the reader fully engaged and eager to soak up the next words uttered. The characters themselves are also extremely well-developed and relatable. They’re the kind of people I want to be friends with, pure and simple.
This particular instalment is a new adult college themed M/M romance. The Main Characters , Wesley and Lloyd, have been friends for years, with Wesley being an unenthusiastic law student but passionate barista who flirts with Lloyd, his college dorm RA and (yet to be acknowledged) best friend.
There is a lot of flirty banter and plenty of romantic undertones to every interaction Wes and Lloyd share. Lloyd is a rule follower, and as an RA he is forbidden to get involved with any dorm residents under his care. In contrast, Wes is cheeky, fun-loving and most certainly not a follower of rules – if anything, he enjoys actively breaking them. He also trusts in the powers of astrological compatibility, and although he secretly adores Lloyd, he believes that Gemini’s are most certainly not compatible with stubborn and straight-laced Capricorns!
“When did you know I liked you?”
“When you realised I was your best friend.”
Wesley has convinced himself that he, a Gemini, and Lloyd, a Capricorn and the resident assistant on his floor, aren’t compatible. All this does not stop him from flirting with Lloyd though.
I really enjoyed this quirky edition to this series! It’s Probably my least favourite in this series, but still enjoyable. I loved the banter, the games, and both MC’s never failed to make me smile. Gemini Keeps Capricorn is nothing short of entertaining and it made me happy the whole time I was reading it.
