A little library brought them together: college history professor Elliot who is a bit of a hermit, teaching online classes, ordering way too many books online, and very rarely venturing out - and former cop Simon recovering from a gunshot and re-evaluating his career.
Simon also struggles with coming out to his close-knit Assyrian family. As for Elliott, there's a reason he teaches online only involving a disastrous relationship with a manipulative ex-boyfriend. The two men begin a relationship (after a cringeworthy / hysterically funny first date) that is free of expectations - Simon is still in the closet and Elliot may be moving to another state to teach - but also very sweet and low-angst.
The story is told in Elliot's POV and I would have liked to gotten Simon's as well, and the subplot with the crazy neighbor is a bit of a caricature, but all in all, this is a sweet story about two men who deserve happiness together. 3.5 stars.
