Blurb: With only a few days to go until Christmas, Michael Cross has to admit there is something amiss about his latest employee, Jack Whelan. Quiet, jumpy, thin… he never seems to eat. He is also incredibly gorgeous with dark spiky hair that Michael aches to touch. But as his boss, Jack is off limits. And when it comes to relationships, he…well, he sucks.
Jack Whelan is at the end of his tether. He’s living rough in the middle of winter, and paying off a massive debt, so getting a job with MC Securities is a lifeline. His new boss is also the hottest guy ever. Geeky, broody, and scarily clever.
When Michael stumbles upon the reality of Jack’s life, he offers to help. But as Michael’s feelings deepen, and Jack’s terrible past catches up with him, Michael has to decide between believing in the awful truth that is staring him in the face, or trusting Jack.
Review: Jack and Michael were a great couple but I honestly felt a bit disappointed in this story. There were too many unanswered questions for me to truly love it. I liked that these two men helped each other in their times of need but the overall delivery just did not do justice for the story.
Everything felt a bit rushed and unexplained especially given the suspense of the story and Jack’s past. I would have liked better explanations as to what happened to Jack when he disappeared as that bugged me at the end of the story with it unresolved.
