About the book:
Israel Ingham’s life has never been easy. He grew up in a house devoid of love and warmth. Nothing he ever did was good enough. The fact Israel is gay just added to the long list of his father’s disappointments.
Then a letter from Eastport Children’s Hospital changes everything.
A discovery is made, one of gross human error. Twenty-six years ago two baby boys were switched at birth and sent home with the wrong families.
Sam, Israel’s best friend, has been his only source of love and support. With Sam beside him every step of the way, Israel decides to meet his birth mother and her son, the man who lived the life Israel should have.
Israel and Sam become closer than ever, amidst the tumultuous emotions of meeting his birth family, and Sam finds himself questioning his feelings toward his best friend. As Israel embraces new possibilities, he needs to dissect his painful relationship with his parents in order to salvage what’s left.
Because sometimes it takes proof you’re not actually family to become one.

What I think?
OK, so I really liked this book. Most of the MM romances that I’ve read are very cute, and this was no exception.
At the beginning we learn that Israel and his parents find out that he was switched with another baby boy at the time of his birth, and as expected, it throws his entire life out of orders. He’s switching between being depressed and relieved because his parents had pretty much ignored him all his life, and he’s glad to at least have a reason now. But at the same time, he thinks that he is not good enough, and that his birth mother might not accept him for being gay.
Enter Sam. He’s the best-friend, and Israels pillar through it all. He supports him, and sometimes even fights his battles for him. Plus he’s good looking. A definite plus XD.
It was really a great story full of humor, and familial ties, and love. I guess, I was hoping for a little more of the angst, but regardless, I really enjoyed it. I loved the note at which the author ended the book.
