An Alisa Review: Please Be Mine by Shawn Bailey

Rating:  3 stars out of 5

It’s Valentine’s Day again and popular technologies executive Flynn Reynolds has received more than his share of candy from the single women employees and mother’s of marriageable age daughters. His best friend Greer Sheen thinks it’s funny that every year Flynn has to lug a ton of chocolate home from the office. Usually foreigners don’t get this much attention in Tokyo! But Flynn isn’t just anybody. He’s the youngest son of the richest American man in Japan. They both get the surprise of their lives with a young Japanese man appears and presents a box of candy to Flynn. Straight laced Greer is shocked that a guy has offered his heart to Flynn, even though Flynn has professed to be gay. Greer just thinks it’s a phase Flynn is going through. After all, Flynn had married a woman and had a son, but he could be wrong, especially since Flynn looked completely enamored by dark-haired, dark-eyed guy who was brave enough to show up with sweets. Would Flynn be foolish enough to risk his reputation and cause an international scandal in Tokyo?

This was a cute story.  You could see how flattered Flynn was and Chiriro’s pure interest and how much he has invested his heart before they even met.  I am still thrown on the traditions and expectations of the culture and haven’t felt they have been well described for me.  I really liked seeing these two go with their feelings despite what any around them may say or do.  The only thing that I had an issue with is Flynn would refer to himself as bisexual in one sentence and then gay in the next like he couldn’t decide either way.

The cover art by E Keith is cute and is perfect for a Valentines story.
