Series: Signs of Love, Book 3
Sometimes, one stubborn Capricorn is all it takes…to drive Wesley Hidaka to crazy, flirtatious lengths.
Wesley loves annoying his RA Lloyd Reynolds. He just can’t help it. Lloyd is focused, decisive, grounded. He has this amusing ability to follow rules.
Of course Wesley wants Lloyd to break one…or three hundred.
Sometimes, one diabolically grinning Gemini is all it takes…to have Lloyd laying down the law and marching Wesley straight back to his dorm room.
It doesn’t stop Wesley teasing again. And again. And again…
But damn. Lloyd doesn’t crack easily. He’s full of principles. He’s unshakable.
He’s the perfect friend to have when Wesley needs help. Like with his truant brother and his old high school principal.
Sometimes, one little lie is all it takes… to find Wesley fake-engaged to his off-limits RA.
What can he say? It seemed like a good idea in the moment . . .

“Gemini Keeps Capricorn” serves up a double shot of cluelessness, with a side of rock’n’roll and topped with a slow burn HEA. It can be read as a standalone.

Slow burn romance is great.
I have to admit that I had a bit of trouble getting into Gemini Keeps Capricorn. I hate it when that happens with a favorite author. I’m never sure if it’s me or the story. I usually think that it’s me; that I’m too distracted by real life or maybe I’ve been reading too much, too fast (I never thought I’d even entertain that as a problem). In any case, I did struggle with this one in the beginning but – it’s Anyta Sunday, so I kept on going and I’m glad I did.
Wesley is clueless when it comes to Lloyd and doesn’t realize that Lloyd is as interested in him as he is in Lloyd. Lloyd is the RA in the dorm where he and Wesley live and the rules strictly forbid any relationship between them. The other problem is that Wesley has been let down in the past by relationships he’s had with Capricorns. He’s determined that as a Gemini, he is not compatible with a Capricorn and they shouldn’t get too involved with each other.
I love how these two guys dance around each other for the biggest part of the book. Lloyd is serious and Wesley is more flirty and outgoing. Wesley enlists Lloyd to be his fake fiancé to try and get his mother to finally accept that he really is gay and that she can’t do anything to change that.
The story also has a nice secondary thread about Wesley’s brother Caleb and his desire to be a musician and how that impacts on his attendance at school. Other secondary and more minor characters provide a rich cast that enhances the story and helps to round out Wesley and Lloyd’s interaction with each other.
By the time I was nearing the end of the story my emotions were fully engaged due to the complex relationship between Wesley and Lloyd as well as the relationship between Wesley, his brother and their mother. More than a few tears were shed.
While I didn’t feel that I could give this book 5 stars as I have the previous ones in this series, it is still a great story and a solid 4-star read for me and I’m looking forward to reading the next one.
