Simon Jarrett is a well-known mystery writer. A play he wrote, based on one of his books, has been accepted by a local theater. Daniel Lowe is the theater's costumer. The first time they meet--in the elevator of their apartment building--neither knows who the other is. Daniel thinks Simon is a snob, while Simon can only see Daniel as a clone of his abusive ex-lover, Carl--although a straight one, he thinks.

They meet again at the theater and both are appalled, to put it mildly, to find out they'll be working together. Slowly, they begin to accept each other, but it isn't until Allie, Simon's friend, reveals to Daniel why Simon is so stand-offish that Daniel finally tells Simon he, too, is gay.

Will the two men be able to become more than friends, or will Carl's coming back into Simon's life drive them apart--or worse?


Off on the Wrong Foot by Edward Kendrick we have Simon a mystery writer and Daniel a costume designer. Simon has a lot of baggage from his past he is dealing with as well. He comes off brisk and sometimes cold this leads to a misunderstanding with Daniel, he thinks the man is just arrogant so he doesn’t really give him a chance after that.
But what soon finds out is that when he spends more time with Simon , Simon has many layers to him. I liked that both men are not what you would expect.
Daniel is built like a line backer but he designs costumes for the theater he loves it. He has never really had anything without a fight so he is willing to fight for Simon too. I liked that though Simon was abused he is not a door mat. He doesn't need Daniel to protect him just love him.
This story is mostly about accepting yourself just as you are, and learning to love yourself first. I liked that theme. Really sweet read that I am glad I got a chance to pick up.
