The Epic Love Story of Doug and Stephen - Valerie Z. Lewis I've been side-eyeing this book for a while, because stories where there is a significant intelligence imbalance in a relationship have the potential to squick me out big time. But if they're written juuust right, it can be very enjoyable. Happily, this book was. Which is a strange thing to think, because Stephen mocks Doug constantly through most of the book, and you'd think that might bother me. But Stephen is a hateful little misanthrope who mocks everyone and everything, so in a way he was just showing Doug equality. Where this book really stands out is with the humor. I have at least a dozen quotes from it highlighted in my Kindle. Seriously, you can embarrass yourself reading this book in public.
