After visiting with his family in New York for a few days, Army Ranger Sergeant John Davidson returns to the military base in Georgia.  John’s personal mission is to discover if Heath Kane, the waiter at Corner Café John has been secretly lusting after for months, is gay and if the attraction is mutual.  Turns out the answers are yes to both of John’s questions.  

Why I Love Waiters is the second book in the Why I Love series.  The setting is ideal for the social issues highlighted in the plot; the southern small towns with a number of abusive homophobic people, as well as the military’s “Don’t Ask,  Don’t Tell” law. These events add drama to the otherwise humorous interaction between the characters.  Also blended into the well written storyline are the characters from the first book Why I Love Geeks.  I suggest reading the first book to fully appreciate Why I Love Waiters.  The main theme clearly illustrated is the importance of love, in addition to friends and family support.  John has a large family who accepts the honorable man that he is and welcomes Heath with open arms.  Heath has an outspoken grandmother who loves him unconditionally.  Secure in the knowledge that they truly love each other and are supported, John is able to make plans for a long term future with Heath.  

T. A. Chase’s creative writing style is communicative on numerous psychological levels, the closed minded attitudes of part of society, intellectual loveable characters that are particularly amusing, as well as being exceptionally sensual and the beautiful heartwarming happy ending. Why I Love Waiters is an absolutely marvelous saga that I thoroughly enjoyed.
