I read this story only knowing the main character from one of Gregs earlier stories. I loved this story showing what happens to Kody if he went to his friends instead of the club. Enjoyed the story very much, very strong recommendation.

I do believe that love at first sight is real, but even so it will take more than a couple meetings for much to happen with it if one of the parties involved happens to be shy, even if the other is extremely pushy about it.
The relationship between Kody and Len moves extremely fast and Kody's portrayal as shy becomes questionable as he has little problems making those leaps with someone he just met(and if I had been in his place I would not have done gone out with Len, he came off as somewhat creepy in the car). Perhaps it would seem less awkward if we knew the other guys were calling him about it as well as Dion, lay the pressure on.
I think the idea was covered well except for the problems I already mentioned. The story knew where it was going, but lingered too long on less important details.

Unfortunately, I didn't much care for this one. I'll be honest: I didn't like Kody at all, and that accounts for a lot with me. The writing was okay, though Kody seemed more than a little wishy-washy, and I think the writing suffered for it. "No, I'm too shy," "Sure I'll come over," "No, I'm too shy," etc. The result was yo-yo-ey, and I didn't like the feeling.
The technical quality was par for the course here. The flow was a bit awkward in a few places, but the story and dialog were fairly strong (aside from the wishy-washiness, which was due to the character more than anything, I think), but all in all, pretty good.

This is fantastic.
Kody a large bear, learns that he was dumped publicly by his ex boyfriend and discovers the right someone when they are set up on a game night by some mutual friends
