You Again by Dianna Roman

Reviews by Yael Waknin


One man looking for love in all the wrong places. Another always in the wrong place.

Brokenhearted and love-scorn, Johnny finds himself forced back into the dating pool by his overbearing mother and meddling best friend. Is it fate, interference, or a dating app glitch that keeps pairing him with his complete opposite, a handsome brick mason with a smile that makes bad decisions worthwhile?

While Aiden is seemingly perfect inside and out, Johnny is a realist. There’s no way that man’s peanut butter goes with Johnny’s clumsy, nerdy jelly. If only he could convince his libido and the determined brick mason that he’s not on the market, he could get back to his safe, solitary life.

Aiden wants more than just being a pretty face and a night of fun after years of fumbling through encounters that never went deeper than the surface. When he meets Johnny, something behind the skittish photographer’s snarky facade speaks to his wanton heart. There has to be a reason they keep crashing into each other in more ways than one. Maybe attraction isn’t supposed to make sense and love, even less.

An MM romcom about the ripple effect of broken trust and learning to love yourself before you can love another.

My review

This is my first book by this author, and I’ve bought it in pre-order!
I’ve seen this cover, and I knew I needed this book!
There’s a cover in the illustrated version, too, and it’s AMAZING! But enough about the cover.
This book is about Johnny and Aiden – I just LOVE every character with the name Aiden!
Johnny was a really complicated man; he was hurt and had trust issues. I know some readers may get mad at his stubbornness, but that’s not what Johnny made me a little angry.
Johnny was a little self-centered in some ways that, on the one hand, made him an actual human, and on the other, I wanted to shake him and tell him, “you’re not the center of the universe!!”
But that was so interesting in his character – he evolved SO MUCH! He is the character we see change little by little as the story progresses. Whether we see the inner monologues, the dialogues with friends and families, or his actions, you get the point.
Aiden was the sweetest thing from beginning to end! He was honest, he was reliable, and he was passionate. I really liked him. I felt a little sad at some point with his choices, but maybe that’s what made him human.
Johnny and Aiden together – OH, Patrick Swayze, I’m in love!!
There was a part in the book; usually, I wouldn’t say I like when it happens in books (I won’t say what).
So at first, I was really upset because it’s usually a real NO-NO for me.
But as the book progressed and I kept reading (because no matter what, this book was freaking INTERESTING!) I wasn’t sure if this “thing” was as bad as I thought (at least in this book).
I wouldn’t say I like when it happens, and I DNF so many books with that, but the author kept my interest on high alert, and I never once thought about DNFing this book.
So my mind was just a little occupied by that thing that I thought, “I don’t usually like,” but mostly, I was so engrossed in Johnny and Aiden’s story I didn’t want it to end!
And please, I NEED Graham’s story NOW!!!
