Mikey Lund has been in love with most of his female friends from afar for years yet never considered any of them truly an option for him. His friend Diane Hoffman learns her boyfriend is married with kids and asks him if he’ll help her convince Robert she’s over him. But Diane soon discovers that Mike is the perfect “pretend” boyfriend…so perfect, she can’t help wondering if their amazingly sweet, sexy, romantic relationship could last in the real world.

Apr 15, 20155 Stars! “The first Angelfire II tale is an enjoyable contemporary romance as the inadvertent other woman and the once obese still alone man fall in love while pretending to be an item. Karen Wiesner delightfully captures the mindset of the protagonists; as he lost the weight but psychologically feels fat and she lost the cheater while psychologically feels a need for the chutzpah philanderer. Readers will enjoy this entertaining tale as ONLY THE LONELY know how the lead couple feels.” ~Harriet Klausner 4 Stars! “Mike Lund is the kind of guy that you don’t really notice at first. He’s quiet and shy, and because he spent much of his young life overweight, he doesn’t have the confidence he should. But, thanks to his skills under the hood, he skirts on the fringe of the popular crowd. ONLY THE LONELY is the story of Mike and his friend Diane, one of the many female friends for which he has carried a torch at one point. Diane takes a job at Foxx Body Shop, where Mike works, after she... More > finds out her boyfriend and boss is someone else’s husband and father. Karen Wiesner does a good job illustrating the emotions both Mike and Diane feel about her previous relationship, as well as the attraction they both refuse to acknowledge. What is so great about ONLY THE LONELY is that while Mike is helping Diane stay strong and stay away from her lying cheating ex, Robert, he is slowly showing her what it feels like to have a solid relationship with a faithful man. Seemingly out of the blue, Diane starts to see Mike as more than a quiet, overweight guy who drinks a little too much. But Mike thinks it’s too much to hope that Diane sees him any differently than she always has. Karen Wiesner did a great job with this story. ONLY THE LONELY offers a good time with great characters, and I look forward to reading more from Wiesner.” ~ReadersFavorite.com "The writing lures readers into Diane’s life, evoking their compassion and their interest to see how she’ll fair after a ten-year affair. She seeks a pretend boyfriend and turns to garage mechanic Mikey Lund, who has been hiding his crush on her for years. This is a story about missed chances as well being a classic love triangle as Diane teeters between a reprobate and the man who genuinely cares about her. The author writes with clarity, showing a deep connection to the characters." ~BTSemag< Less
