This romance novel is one of the queerest I've read, and considering my tastes, that's saying something. The romance is between a cis bisexual man and a genderqueer person. "Normal" relationships haven't historically worked for either of them, but they really like each other. The solution? They might have to actually communicate about their wants, needs, and past traumas.
What happens when the search for the perfect date goes perfectly wrong?
Declan has commitment issues. He's been an office temp for literally years now, and his friends delight in telling people that he left his last boyfriend at the altar.
And that's all true. But he's starting to think it's time to start working on his issues. Maybe.
When Declan meets Sidney--a popular nonbinary YouTuber with an advice show--an opportunity presents itself: as part of The Love Study, Declan will go on a series of dates arranged by Sidney and report back on how the date went in the next episode.
The dates are...sort of blah. It's not Sidney's fault; the folks participating are (mostly) great people, but there's no chemistry there. Maybe Declan's just broken.
Or maybe the problem is that the only person he's feeling chemistry with is Sidney.
