Ryan Alback has almost everything he’s ever wanted: a successful acting career, a dog who adores him, great family and friends, and a life outside the closet. The only thing missing is a boyfriend — but Ryan’s been burned by Hollywood relationships before, and he’s not eager to try one again.
Jason Santos has almost everything he’s ever wanted: a fulfilling career teaching middle school, a house in a city he loves, and parents who support him in every way. Too bad he can’t seem to forget the ex-boyfriend who rejected his marriage proposal.
When a talk show host launches a dating contest to find Ryan a boyfriend and Jason accidentally wins, neither of them expect anything to come from it. Yet somewhere between a disastrous massage and a mud sinkhole, they both start to wonder if this date could be more than just a public relations stunt. But before they can move into the future, they’ll both have to learn to let go of the past.
Jason had no desire to enter the contest, much less hope to win, but his well meaning friend gave him no choice. Ryan was a ‘victim’ of the same kind of well meaning friend. The weekend date had absolutely no hope of going anywhere for either one of them, only it did… almost.
There was a whole lot that I liked about Dating Ryan Alback. The supporting characters were great, including the dog. The chemistry between Jason and Ryan was great too… when they weren’t trying to fight it. Honestly, the only thing that I didn’t like about Dating Ran Alback was Ryan. Well, to fair, I didn’t exactly not like him, I just didn’t like the way he jumped to conclusions. I could forgive him the first time, but… you’re just going to have to read this one for yourself and see if you feel the same way.
