Title: The One That I Want; Hopelessly Devoted

Author: RJ Jones

Genre: Gay Romance, Musical

Length: Short Stories

Publisher: Wayward Ink Publishing


Jason escapes into the magic of a Broadway play every weekend. Musicals always have a happy ending and for a few hours he can believe there’s a happy ending waiting for him, too. When the tall drink of water who works on the top floor of Jason’s building, wants to take him on a date, Jason is surprised. After all, Jason is awkward and skinny, and sees himself as a boring accountant, while Paul is tall, dark, and incredibly hot.
Despite Jason’s reservations, Paul and Jason start dating and attending the shows Jason adores. But if Paul likes musicals as much as Jason, why does he always doze off? Is Paul leading a double life? Does he have a wife tucked away somewhere?
Jason knows Paul is hiding something and when the secrets come out, Jason finds his fantasy comes to life, right there on the stage.

THE NEXT morning he was there again, and his lips quirked in a small smile when he saw me. I looked at all the people milling around the elevator, then headed for the stairs. I couldn’t stop myself from looking over my shoulder. Mr. Gorgeous was staring at me, his brow furrowed and his smile gone. At least I could breathe in the stairwell. I took the stairs for the rest of the week, successfully eluding another encounter with Mr. Way-out-of-my-league.
Friday morning came, and I looked toward the elevator, expecting to see him waiting with the hordes, but he wasn’t there. I didn’t always see him, and I presumed he traveled for work or maybe had breakfast meetings on the days I didn’t see him. Heading for the stairs, I pushed the door open as I tried to fit my Encore magazine into my messenger bag.
“Why are you ignoring me?”
My heart felt like it had flown out of my chest. I grabbed the railing to steady myself with one hand; the other clutching at my chest like it was possible to stop my heart from flying away.
“Jesus, holy... Are you trying to kill me? I’m sure it’d be less painful to throw me down the stairs.”
“Sorry, but you’ve been avoiding me all week. Short of stalking you on your way home I thought this was a better, non-psychotic way of getting you to talk to me.”
“And scaring someone to death in an empty stairwell is less psychotic?”

So I started reading this and quite a ways in I kept thinking, this sounds so familiar. I've read this story before. I went back and checked and, no I didn't have a review for this. As I was about to ask my co-blogger if I was crazy, it hit me. I read this as part of the anthology, Encore. I reread it again, but  my original review is below.

Jason is an average accountant. He runs into Mr. Wonderful every morning in the elevator on his way to work.

Paul asks Jason out on a date, but Jason has a hard time believing that Paul would really want to be with him, the average accountant.

This was a sweet, funny and spicy read. I have one thing to say, I want to go to a Grease Dance Party! Sounds like a fabulous time!

This was fun and entertaining and even though it was a short story, I didn't feel cheated. I felt satisfied when I was done.

This was a good follow-up to Jason and Paul's story. This story tells some of what has happened to them since we last saw them and leads up to their wedding. I loved that everything didn't come up roses for them. They had to fight for their relationship. They faced trials and tribulations, but they make it through with love.

This was a sweet ending to their story that I really enjoyed!

About the author

R.J. Jones started as a reader and eventually made the progression to reviewing. It wasn’t until two men popped into her thoughts, insisting on telling her their story that she started to write.
It started with one scene. A hot and dirty one in the shower…
R.J.’s initial thought was if she could write their scene then they’d shut up and allow her to concentrate on other aspects of her day. Not so. That shower scene ended up being 3000 words long and three hours of work.  And still, they didn’t shut up.  They told her their entire story and she didn’t sleep for days. Sometimes she couldn’t keep up with what they were telling her and she had to keep a notebook by her bed.
Whilst she was writing their story a side character decided he needed his story told too. Then other characters followed suit.
You see the problem? If she ever wants to sleep again then she needs to write.
R.J. is a wife and a mother to two boys. She is surrounded by males. Even her dog is a boy.
