Blurb: Thirty year-old lawyer, Blake Aster gazes from his high-rise office window wondering if this summer he’ll find love, but deep inside he doubts anyone will ever want him again. He can’t forget the scar he has running the length of his face.
Hunky, daring, Alex Ryan is cleaning the building windows. Struck by the mythical beauty in Blake’s office, Alex sets out to get the other man’s attention. Maybe a striptease outside Blake’s eighth floor window will do the trick.

Review: Things really pick up in the second chapter. Alex has a solid, distinct voice, and that voice is gushing over how hot Scarface here is. I’m laughing within the first paragraph. Thank you, Alex. This book probably would have done great being told explicitly from Alex’s perspective for the first half.
Hits some lovely exhibitionism notes. Major points for two guys who understand the importance of safe sex in their rendezvous.
Also highlights rich lifestyle, for those who are into that.
From the cheeky blurb, I’d been expecting something less angst and more romcom. It tried to be a thriller and a romance, but where it spent the most details by far was the sex scenes. This style of writing would have been more believable to me as an established, kinky couple.
