Story Overview:
Riley Gold likes things neat. He appreciates order, organization. Sure, he wants to find love but he sticks to the kitchen, loving his life as a chef, where he can carefully measure, time, and control every situation.

Basil Culver grew up alone. An orphan, he got bounced from home to home and learned at a young age to keep people at a distance. Attachment meant eventual agony—when the person unfailingly abandoned him. Better to live every moment, allow for the chaos of the universe, and keep rolling.

When these opposites clash, sparks fly. Can Basil manage to rumple Riley’s carefully tucked sheets?

My Quickie Review:
This is a new series set in the small town of Zero, Ohio. Overall, this first book was a pleasant read. I liked how Riley is struggling with OCD and knows that he has to overcome it to get what he wants most...a normal relationship. Basil wants the same thing and was written really well in how he dealt with giving Riley the space he needed with his phobia. I enjoyed both men's characters and their interactions. 

It was a nice, quick little read and worth the $1 I spent on it. In the future, I'd like to see a bit more of the town since that's how the series has been built up, but this gave a decent taste of things to come.
