Blurb:   Mitchell Hill might be gay, but working for a business specializing in sexual products for men makes it hard for him…in more ways than one. When his new boss announces a contest to find an innovative product to launch nationally, Mitchell blurs the line between personal and professional by deciding to submit a lubricant he’d created for himself. One problem—he has to get the approval of his boss’s sexy assistant, a man he hasn’t been able to stop thinking about, in very carnal ways, since first seeing.

Kayden Wright has heard nothing but insane ideas about products until newcomer Mitchell walks into his office. He’s thrilled with the lube idea…and turned-on by the man before him. He always maintains a professional demeanor—he needs this job to deal with the mountain of medical bills piling at his door. But when Mitchell kisses him, he loses his steely control. Not easily willing to trust others, Kayden mistakes innocence for treachery, and the two men start a roller-coaster relationship filled with lies, deceit…and smoldering sex.

Review: Mitchel is starting a new job with a company that caters to gay men. He meets Kayden, the assistant that no one at the company likes. They all warn him to watch his back that Kayden is a weasel and backstabber, but Mitchell finds him hot and intriguing.

I really liked this story. I thought it intriguing. I loved all the characters. The office politics really hit home.  I went back and forth on the Mitchel/ Kayden thing.  I liked Kayden and I could see his point of view.   I loved all the crazy ideas the people kept coming up with and I even liked the grouchy hateful boss.  This story was lots of fun and very sexy! I think I see a sequel coming and I can’t wait!

I recommend this if you like bartenders, science nerds, whacky ideas, sneaky assistants, and some hot mansex.
