Blurb: Blake Davis is in the closet. And he’s going to stay that way. Because if his father finds out he’s gay, Blake could lose everything he’s worked so hard to achieve during the last six years as CEO of Trinity Publishing, the fastest rising star in the publishing firmament. Not that coming out wouldn’t solve a couple of problems. Maybe then his father would stop trying to set him up with yet another empty-headed, social-climbing girlfriend. And better still, Blake could stop using that escort agency when he wants a night of hot sex with a cute guy…
Will Parkinson has had a tough life so far, but he’s back on his feet. Okay, so he’s working as an escort – with ‘benefits’– to pay off his student loans, but that does have its advantages, such as the really hot guy who hired him. Yeah, Blake rocked his world last night – several times. So imagine how Will feels when he arrives to be interviewed for his dream job as PA in a publishing company, and the guy who’s hiring is… Blake.
And then things get really complicated….
Review: Blake Davis is the super successful and super sexy CEO of his father’s publishing house. He’s worked hard to get where he is, but he refuses to be honest with his father about his sexual orientation for fear of losing not only his job but his father’s respect as well. In an attempt to keep his private life a secret, Blake uses an exclusive escort agency that adheres to the utmost discretion. Blake never expected to walk into work and find the delicious escort that rocked his world and curled his toes the night before, interviewing for his current PA position.
Will Parkinson came out to his family when he was a teenager and the result was disastrous. The very thing Blake fears most is what Will had to suffer before he was even an adult. The job with the escort agency is simply a means to an end, so when he comes face to face with his client from the previous night while interviewing for the job he really wants, he’s certain he won’t be getting the position. When Blake calls and offers him the job he’s pleasantly surprised. The two make a strong effort to keep things strictly professional, but soon they are having some mind-blowing, set the office on fire HOT sex on Blake’s desk! When Blake’s “beard”, a spoiled rich bitch socialite discovers their secret, she will do anything and destroy anyone to tear them apart and keep Blake for herself. Will Blake find a way to keep the man he’s falling in love with? Or will the secrets he hides and the fear of ‘what if’ lead him down the wrong path.
I was hooked by the end of the first chapter. The story flowed well with three-dimensional characters, rich secondary characters, and an intriguing storyline that covered the ML’s past, present and future. Blake and Will have their share of highs and lows as they build their relationship and learn what trust, love and perseverance are all about. Hopeless romantics will love this story, I sure did! There is some steamy, sweaty sex and a glorious HEA!!
