Aaron Hall has never been able to remain faithful to a single woman, and for most of his life, he’s dated two women at once. Recently his girlfriend tracked him down and knocked on his door—and his live-in girlfriend answered. Now he has no girlfriend and a mortgage he can’t pay by himself.

Vinnie Rosello needs to change his life—get a better job, stop drinking all his money away, find himself a serious boyfriend… and move out of his parents’ house. Aaron needs help with his expenses, so they become housemates.

Even though Aaron harbors some misconceptions about gay men and Vinnie misses his large Italian family, both men find comfort in their friendship. It’s a good arrangement until everything between them changes

Vinnie falls in love with Aaron, and Aaron is shocked to realize he feels the same. There’s only one problem—he’s still straight. He’ll have to overcome his fear of labels in order to love the man who’s captured his heart.

The Straight Boyfriend by Renae Kaye is the third book in the Loving You series. This is my first time reading the series. I felt this book could be a stand alone, I really did not need to read anything else to understand this story at all. This story we have Aaron and Vinnie.
Aaron is a player when we meet him. He cannot remain faithful to a woman to save his life. That has him in his current predicament. He has a payment to his house he cannot make alone. But his current girlfriend and the one living with him have met and let's just say that did not go well. Now Aaron is alone with monthly payments he cannot meet.
Vinnie really needs to grow up and start living his life out side of drinking and living with his parents. He wants to find a serious boyfriend. When Aaron and him meet he thinks he has finally found what he is looking for. He didn't count on love getting in the way.
I liked the pace of this story. It is not forced, it feels like these two really get to be friends before anything else happens. I liked the cute sweet moments in this story a lot. I found myself smiling more than once as I read this one. I would love to read more from this series and maybe even go back and see what I missed. If you want a cute, sweet, feel good kind of romance this one is perfect to pick up.
