Topper Meets Emma!

Re-release of bestselling 2009 novel - What happens when Rory travels halfway across the country to meet the girl of his dreams? Certainly not what he expected...

Rory's just be a simple southern boy from St. Antoine's Parish, Louisiana, but he knows what he wants -- the girl of his dreams, reclusive and mysterious artist Ran Yamane. He's loved her since junior high school, and now he has the chance to meet her. He chucks everything and travels 1,500 miles to Anime Expo in Long Beach just so he can tell her. He's determined that nothing and nobody are going to stand in his way.

Turns out, Ran Yamane isn't a girl, but he gets that a lot. People come to him with teddy bears and chocolates and disappointment by the truckload. He's trusted fans in the past and paid the price. So when he meets Rory he is understandably wary, but resigned. He isn't prepared for his magnetic attraction to the young man, Rory's apparent willingness to overlook his gender, and the chaos that ensues when his number one fan (and psycho stalker) shows up to get revenge.

Re-release.

Sometimes we all need a little push, even if it's from a ghost. Fitz is a brilliant pianist but he's not very socially sophisticated. In fact he has no friends at his new performing arts school and with his erstwhile mom in Europe, he jumps at the first young man to show him some attention. Unfortunately that attention lands Fitz in a dumpster where he's fished out by two very energetic and talkative ghosts. Julian and Serge are determined to help Fitz in the minefield of his life in very unusual ways. If only Fitz could see the real life man in Ari as well. Rhapsody for Piano and Ghost is an entertaining romp when Fitz's naïve and somewhat overly innocent world collides with real men and their good or bad intentions. The story is very funny and pretty engaging as socially awkward Fitz suddenly has two suitors in his sheltered life. The first is Garrett, a school classmate that is obviously bad news. Everyone can see it but Fitz, who's determined to be a loyal friend and boyfriend. The other potential love interest is Ari, Fitz's ex-step brother and full time rescuer. The love triangle is fun to watch as Fitz fumbles and stumbles between the men with a lot of naïve assumptions and hopes. Some of this can be frustrating as it drags on a bit too long and much too obvious for the average reader. What makes the story really quite fun to read are the ghosts - Julian and Serge. Julian fishes Fitz out of the dumpster by trying to steal his jacket. This sets the stage for two very loving but interfering ghosts to play havoc with Fitz's life. All the while cooking fabulous meals of course. The ghosts are incredibly fun, very romantic, tragic, beautiful, and simply entertaining. They're easily my favorite part of the story and really loved whenever they appeared in a scene. Their story doesn't always make sense, either their backstory or how they came to be where/what they are, but at the same time they're so engaging I didn't care. The writing is very typical of this author and fans of the author's work are likely going to want to read this. It's fun, light, entertaining and only slightly frustrating. Fitz tested my patience more than once but the writing and sheer fun of the ghosts, not to mention pretty romantic intentions of Ari help make up for those issues and everything else aside, I think Julian and Serge were absolutely worth reading.
