Hi everyone,
We meet today to review Gemini keeps Capricorn, the third book in the series Signs of love by Anyta Sunday.


Before I begin, I would like to thank A Novel Take PR and Anyta Sunday for giving me the opportunity to read this title in ARC and participate in its promotion. Some of you may know that, but I’m a big fan of this series, so it was a pleasure for me to do it. However, I will still make a review as honest as possible.

Blurb :

Sometimes, one stubborn Capricorn is all it takes… to drive Wesley Hidaka to crazy, flirtatious lengths.

Wesley loves annoying his RA, Lloyd Reynolds. He just can’t help it. Lloyd is focused, decisive, grounded. He has this amusing ability to follow rules.
Of course, Wesley wants Lloyd to break one… or three hundred.

Sometimes, one smirking Gemini is all it takes… to have Lloyd laying down the law and marching Wesley straight back to his dorm room.

It doesn’t stop Wesley teasing again. And again. And again…
But damn. Lloyd doesn’t crack easily. He’s full of principles. He’s unshakable.
He’s the perfect friend to have when Wesley needs help. Like with his truant brother and his old high school principal.

Sometimes, one little lie is all it takes… to find Wesley fake-engaged to his off-limits RA.

What can he say? It seemed like a good idea at the time…

My opinion:

Gemini keeps Capricorn is a third book that fits completely in the continuity of the series while bringing its individuality. We find the university environment of Leo loves Aries with a small novelty “Life in the dormitory”. A big part of the novel happens on the floor of the residence where Wesley Hidaka resides and obviously, his favorite RA, LIoyd Reynolds. I really liked this environment which is the perfect context for funny situations because of the different personalities who live there. I must admit that it was not complicated to embark me on this type of story since I love this kind of set up. I loved to read and discover small slices of life, be it those of the main characters, than those of more secondary ones like Caleb, Wesley’s Brother, or those of characters more in the background like Randy, Wesley clumsy neighbor that tends to put the kitchen in chaos while trying to cook. All these small scenes do not necessarily bring to the story itself, but they allow to better apprehend the universe in which the characters interact and to show us other parts of their personality or to deepen certain aspects.

As usual, Anyta Sunday did a very good job with her characters and their backgrounds and personalities. Of course, I loved Wesley and LIoyd, but I enjoyed getting to know Caleb, MacDonald or Ryan, the RA on the floor above who regularly harass LIoyd on different tasks related to community life.

I really liked Wesley’s character, but I especially loved the relationships he has with other characters in his life. With LIoyd of course, even though I had expected more clashes. With Caleb, where he shows other aspects of his personality, sweet, but fierce and desperate for his little brother. With her mother, we feel love but also regret, disappointment and loss. It touched me a lot. Especially in the last chapters where we find evolution and a beginning of “it will get better”. And finally, with his friends, there is a funny Wesley, a bit braggart, and hyper-social.

As usual, Anyta Sunday offers us main characters and very worked secondary. Of course, I loved Wesley and LIoyd, but I enjoyed getting to know Caleb, MacDonald or Ryan, the supervisor on the floor above who regularly harass LIoyd on different tasks related to community life.

I really liked Wesley’s character, but I especially loved the relationships he has with the other characters in his life. With LIoyd of course, even though I had expected more clash. With Caleb, where he shows other aspects of his personality, sweet, but fierce and ready to do anything for his little brother. With her mother, we feel love but also regret, disappointment and loss. It touched me a lot. Especially in the last chapters where we find evolution and the beginning of “it will get better.” And finally, with his friends, there is a funny Wesley, a bit braggart and hyper-social.

My only regret about the characters was not to find more characters of the first books. I loved seeing Jamie and Theo again, especially with their scene in the bushes.That made me smile. But I would have liked to have a little bit more and to see more characters like Theo’s mother although I understand why she is not present. Of course, I’m a little sad not to have seen Percy and Callaghan, but it’s probably due to my personal relationship with Callaghan. If you have not read my review of Scorpio hates Virgo, know that I really found myself in this character and I loved that Anyta addresses the subject of demisexuality and that she did it with a lot of finesse.

we find small sentences with a little pun on coffee such as “You mocha me horny”

Although I regretted that there isn’t more sexual tension, I loved reading the what I ended up calling in Signs of Love “The First Scene.” In Leo loves Aries, it was the scene of the ice rink with the first erection, at least for Theo because of Jamie. In Scorpio hates Virgo, it was the scene where the marathon Elementary and Percy gave Cal a Massage and here it’s the scene where Wesley and LIoyd jerked off, one in the bathroom and the other in the room while both knowing what the other was doing.

Another common element to the three books that I found super cute, it’s the small additions at the beginning of the chapter. This time we find small sentences with a little pun on coffee such as “You mocha me horny” or “Can not wait to cream you” (very naughty this one). It does not add much to the story, but it’s a small detail that brings a big plus to a book. For me, a book is not just a good story, it’s also a good Edits work. And these little phrases in addition to the cover, once again beautiful, make the Gemini Capricorn editions a success.

In the end, for me, this third volume is a success. I love this series and I enjoyed being able to dive again into it, discover new characters in a different environment and be able to see, although too quickly, Theo and Jamie again. I certainly regretted the absence of the mother of Theo, Percy, and Cal, but again, this feeling of lacking is mainly due to the fact that I loved the second book and the character of Callaghan. In any case, Gemini keeps Capricorn, is a fresh, funny book and is like the previous ones a real breath of love and hope. This is the type of novel that warms your heart and soul and with this cold and snowy December, it’s the perfect companion for a nice evening near the fireplace.
