This is a great concept for a book.

Anyone who loves all those classic movies where the leading lady drives off into the sunset with Tall Dark and Handsome, leaving behind some poor Joe Nobody not quite as tall and not quite as handsome but totally dependable (and devoted) will feel immediately guilt ridden that they never considered the Other Guys' feelings.

What Cary Attwell has written is a brilliant book which makes you love Emory, from the moment he's standing in the church, jilted, in front of everyone of importance in his life, comparing himself to the 'Other Guy' you can't help but feel for the guy. Joining Emory in search of escape from what will come next, the pity and well meant platitudes of those around him, we travel through the life of a man who is in many ways totally clueless but you can't help but love him anyway even while you're cringing hoping he'll get a clue before it's too late.

Well written, and enjoyable, I couldn't put this book down!

Loved the emotions of the story, the heartbreak, the finding of new love in a surprising setting. Loved the prose, the emotional roller coaster. Yes, fell in love with Em and Nate, really. Great romance novel. The Other Guy ticks all the boxes for me.

Thoughtfully written, a few well chosen conundrums that life throws at us all and some only to a few thankfully. Facing who you are and embracing a new chapter, an enjoyable easy read . Good to be from the straighter man's view

Humorous, touching, and very well written, The Other Guy made for a hugely enjoyable read.

Emory's narrative was brilliant, all neurotic and self deprecating. The Avoid-and-hope-it-goes-away tactic is my go-to in all difficult situations, so I could totally relate to his actions. I really felt for him as his blind-eye-turning choices buried him ever deeper in poop.

He and Nate together were adorable, and their banter was great. Linn, too, was fantastic -everyone needs a straight talking, no s*** taking friend such as her.

I do feel, however, more could have been made of certain aspects to up the impact/tension/drama a wee notch. And, though I liked the fact this book abstained from explicit sex scenes, I think a further few steps from tame may have enhanced it some (most notably that first time; glossing over such a monumental marker of change in Emory's life was not a particularly effective approach).

This book was absolutely wonderful, I cannot praise it highly enough. From the outset it was different, witty, clever, humorous, the wordy foreplay was just fantastic and I loved it. It was so refreshing to read something like this in this genre, there was no graphic sex - sorry, a good story; there was laughter and wit and optimism and it was really unputdownable. The story weaves its way to what I hoped was a foregone conclusion through ups and downs, and it was a prefect tale. I loved it and hope you do. it left things to your imagination and didn't spell everything out in great detail, not that there wasn't detail - there was; I just hope there is more to come from Cary Attwell.

I liked the idea of the book, following the fortunes of the guy left at the altar rather than the couple who ride off happily into the sunset. It did end up a bit like a gay Mills and Boon though. The characters were easy to like though and the story quite simple to follow.

Most gay literature is full of - and don't mistake this as complaining - sex with some story line attached. However,Attwell has constructed a beautiful story where the sexual elements are left to the imagination. I can relate closely to both Nate and Emory,which, and would be the same for any reader, made me laugh and cry, many times simultaneously. This is one if the best books I have read, and I encourage you to give it as much attention as I have!
