Blurb: Recluse Andrew Eccleston wants revenge on the man who destroyed his face twenty years ago, Winnie Wexford–a vindictive state senator not above a smear campaign against Andrew. Andrew’s grateful for the help of his erstwhile brother-in-law, David, until the help turns up in the form of PR guru Levi Beaumont, Andrew’s every fantasy come to life.
Levi is beautiful, smart, and righteous. When his mentor, David asks him to take on a difficult client for the PR firm, Levi agrees, in spite of a very real risk to his career working with non-profits to get them the attention they deserve. He knows facing off against a powerful politician could destroy his career, but he agrees out of loyalty to his mentor. Andrew and Levi are thrown into tense proximity as they work to protect Andrew and expose Wexford.
As Andrew opens his tightly-guarded private life to Levi, hostility turns to respect, respect to passion, and the stakes go much deeper than career or reputation.
This second edition includes new content.

Review: I was intrigued by this well written story as it had both characters POV’s which is rare. I thoroughly enjoyed the romance between Andrew and Levi as their relationship progressed. I Understood Andrew’s hostility about the result that was done to him by another.
This is a very emotional story. It had me in tears several times. Especially Andrew. My heart broke as it seemed he was trying to deal with what happed and to come through.
The entire book seemed realistic as the story unfolds and draws the reader in the journey of two men trying making a life together.
Great read with some hot sex thrown in.
