When you where given a like king james patterson you kinda want to hide. Known as jimmy he co ownes Pennys coffee shop with felicity. James celebrate his birthday with his boyfriend but its doesn't go well.
❤What if your fated boyfriend was under your nose the hole time. Names are just names but once you know a person that what really matters. Stone is like Jimmy in more ways than one with a common naming problem. Stone is hiding his too..can you guess what it is. A beautiful book and their characters..
Prince charming gets his King James.
This is one pretty damn cool and well written story. Jimmy is a sweetheart and it’s difficult not to instantly feel sorry for this self-confessed twink. To top it all off, he’s attracted to the big bear of a man behind the bar at the only gay bar in town. The mystery is no one knows his name. They just know him as whichever name tag he was wearing when last seen or taken notice of. This makes Jimmy determined to work it out.
It’s certainly different having the entire plot predicated on a character trying to guess something about the other main character. In fact, I really enjoyed how the chapters were set up and it was really well paced too. Every couple chapters, when it gets to the end of the night after Jimmy and “Guy” have been out, it’s a short period of calm as we see what Jimmy has come up with. Then between all these guesses, Jimmy chronicles the drama that is unfolding around him, drama that “Guy” is more than willing to get involved in as long as Jimmy is kept safe. “Guy” is a teddy bear in every way possible and I found him instantly likable. His refusal to give his real name is more mischievous than annoying.
I really enjoyed the pacing and the cast of characters in this book. This is the type of book you can sit back and just read without thinking too much. Really, this is just a bit of funny with some mystery thrown in but not too much danger.

The plot was fun and I look forward to the rest of the series.
The first of a five-part series inspired by the relocation of Bay Area gay folks to the Sierra foothills after the economic downturn in 2008, “What’s in a Name” is a sweet-hearted look at romance and the importance of community. From the big lug of a bartender who saves Jimmy from himself—and gets him to try to guess his real name over the course of a week—to the various community characters Jimmy meets during that same week; Pat Henshaw’s novella is full of charm and a warm sense of place.
Confronted with prejudice and vandalism for the first time since leaving San Francisco, Jimmy looks increasingly to the Big Guy, as he calls his burly savior. Sure, it’s great to be independent, but it’s just as important to have good people at your back.
I’ve already bought book 2 in the series, for next time I need some sweetness to lighten my day.
