Dustin is a hard-working architect who does not have time for relationships; that’s where the occasional one night stand comes in.  When he gets talked into attending a party with his sister, he doesn’t expect to find someone who will change his life forever. 

Fans of Jet Mykles are sure to love her newest release, I Can’t Fight This Feeling Anymore.  The story is about two men who can’t seem to get over each other.  Dustin is the younger brother of a gay romance writer.  When she needs someone to attend a party with her, he’s there for her.  While there, he sees someone that holds his attention the whole night.  Bryce is a young man who has yet to settle on just what he wants out of life, other than a lot of sex.  He finds himself just as drawn to Dustin as Dustin is to him.  From there the story will take the reader on a wild ride as Dustin and Bryce try to fight their feelings for each other.

It is easy to understand why Bryce felt like he wasn’t good enough for Dustin.  He works several part-time jobs, doesn’t have any real plans for the future and loves to party.  Dustin, on the other hand, is older, is settled in his career and has his own home.  They are total opposites, yet the chemistry between them cannot be denied.  Although I liked that the author kept the characters wondering about how their lives are changing because of meeting each other, I was close to tears when Bryce set out to become more adult in order to be what Dustin wants and needs.  Dustin did drive me a little crazy, however, with the way he stresses about the age difference between the two of them, especially since it is really not that much.

I Can’t Fight This Feeling Anymore also has a wide variety of secondary characters. While most are supportive of the two men, there are a couple of people that needs to be thumped upside the head.  

This story is fast-paced and will pull you in from the beginning.  The characters are engaging while the story keeps you wanting to see what will happen next.  Not only is this story one the author’s fans are sure to love, but it makes a greater starter story for those thinking of dipping their toes into the m/m genre.
