Happy for You by Anyta Sunday - Book Breakdown

Mort wants his de facto family back. . . .
He knows he doesn’t deserve them. Not yet, anyway. Not without making up for leaving them in their time of need.
But it’s not easy to make amends. Mort must show how much he wants the Rochester family back in his life. When his best friend’s younger brother, Felix, has his license suspended, Mort jumps at the chance to play chauffeur and to win back the family he desperately wants to call his own.
Repairing his broken relationships—with all five Rochester siblings—becomes Mort’s personal mission. Especially with Felix. Felix, who used to follow him everywhere. Felix, who idolized him. Felix, whom Mort has not stopped thinking about . . .

Felix is just trying to keep it together. . . .
With a perma-smile as his armor, he’s determined to make his family happy. Determined to be a positive role model to his three younger sisters, while their mum struggles with depression after her kidney transplant.
Unfortunately, no amount of smiling can save his license when he gets pulled over for the umpteenth time, and he still needs to get his sisters to school, soccer, and dance classes.
The solution to his problem emerges in the return of their prodigal neighbor, Mort. Mort, who left their lives without a word. Mort, who was in love with Felix’s older brother.
Mort, who is the last guy Felix wants charging back into their lives. . . .

Mort and Felix. Two guys bound by a rocky past—
—a past they must come to terms with to find true happiness in the here and now.

Book Breakdown

*I got this from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*

Mort never had a good home life so he spent most of his time over at his best friend Roch's house. He even had a crush on Roch growing up. One day he comes out to Roch's mom and she makes him leave before she has to go in for kidney surgery. But now he's back and his feeling for Roch are gone. Then there's Felix. Roch's younger brother who has always crushed on Mort. Can he forgive Mort for leaving when he needed him most? Will Roch stand in the way of their happiness? 

Felix is just a wonderful guy. He takes care of all his siblings, three little sisters while taking care of his mum AND working a full-time job! He's also always smiling while helping whenever he can. He's such a giver that I'm glad Mort came along to put him first. He needed that so much! 

Anyta Sunday can't write a bad book. She can't. I think it's impossible for her because every book I've read is always so amazing! The writing is witty and funny. The characters are so freaking sweet that it makes me sick (in the best way possible). 

If you're in the mood for a quick m/m romance that ends HEA and will tug at your heartstrings, this book is for you!
