James Cape has been in love with his mother’s best friend Laurie since James was sixteen and Laurie an inaccessible twenty-six. When he’s turned down flat by the older man just after his nineteenth birthday, James’s best friend Al encourages him to forget Laurie and find someone else. And James tries, he really does. But can he cope with his feelings for Laurie, his best friend’s home-life problems, and the deteriorating health of his father, all at the same time? And will Laurie ever notice the young man who’s right in front of him?

I enjoyed this book. One Plus One is the first book I've read by P.A. Friday; it's book 2 in the Maths series. I found out after I read this that it actually takes place before book 1, Love Plus One. Both stories are about Laurie and James but James' best friend, Al, figures heavily in both books. (I have not read the first book.) I don't feel like I missed anything by not reading the first book. Since One Plus One is about how Laurie and James got together I think I might actually like it better that I started with this one. I enjoyed it enough that I'd like to read Love Plus One to find out more about where their relationship goes. James has been in love with his mother's best friend, Laurie since he was a teenager. Laurie is much older than James and he rebuffs James when he professes his love. Since this is book 2, I'm not giving anything away to say that James and Laurie eventually get together. What's interesting about this story is how James handles himself in the years between when Laurie rebuffs his advances and when they finally do get together. James best friend, Al, doesn't like how James is pining after Laurie; he thinks James needs to forget him and get on with his life and find someone else to have a relationship with. I enjoyed this book a lot and will read more by this new-to-me author. An advanced copy of this book was provided to me but my review was voluntary and not influenced by the author. ***Reviewed for Xtreme-Delusions dot com***
