One Man Guy by Michael Barakiva

One Man Guy

by Michael Barakiva

18465591A heartfelt, laugh-out-loud-funny story of romance, family, and self-discovery.

Alek Khederian should have guessed something was wrong when his parents took him to a restaurant. Everyone knows that Armenians never eat out. Between bouts of interrogating the waitress and criticizing the menu, Alek’s parents announce that he’ll be attending summer school in order to bring up his grades. Alek is sure this experience will be the perfect hellish end to his hellish freshman year of high school. He never could’ve predicted that he’d meet someone like Ethan.

Ethan is everything Alek wishes he were: confident, free-spirited, and irreverent. He can’t believe a guy this cool wants to be his friend. And before long, it seems like Ethan wants to be more than friends. Alek has never thought about having a boyfriend—he’s barely ever had a girlfriend—but maybe it’s time to think again.

Meh.  I didn't enjoy this nearly as much as I thought I would.  The writing-style just wasn't for me at all.  It felt clunky and juvenile. 
I didn't care for the characters at all because there was nothing to make me like them.  They were too much like cardboard cut-outs. 
I really wish I could have liked this.  Maybe next time!
