Blurb: When Noah loses his life partner to kidney failure, he not only grieves personally, but he also needs a replacement to help run his restaurant business. After a couple of tryout failures, Noah eventually interviews the stunning Gavin Murray.

Gavin has everything needed to become the perfect general manager. He has the education, the experience, and the polish and sophistication required in a top executive. The only problem, however, is that Noah finds the man sexually attractive in a way that borders on pure obsession. He wants Gavin, but he tells himself that he can’t have him.

He’s still mourning Brett and he’s far from ready to move on with his life. If he had any sense, he’d turn down Gavin’s application and send him on his way.

Instead, Noah eventually agrees to give Gavin a three-month trial period by convincing himself the man is his only option to fill the position and that business comes first.

But will Noah be able to resist the daily temptation he now faces with Gavin in such close proximity?

Review: This title is part of The Second Time Around AmberPax Collection. So far book one is looking pretty good. I do hope that the second book is a bit longer in length and more to it. I wasn’t so sure what to think about it though over all. It starts out pretty good, but I want more to it.

Noah had loved his life partner and when Brett died, he just wanted to give up. For over a year he continues to work and miss the man he loved. Now he had to find someone to replace his lover at work. They had ideas to expand at work and now he knew he had to continue on with life. He just wasn’t expecting to want Gavin as he did.

Gavin wanted the job, but damn he wanted his boss even more. A chance encounter at the club and he wants him even more. Now all he has to do is to get Noah to see that he can love him without hurting his memory of Brett.

This was a cute story that will have you tearing up. To lose someone so important and to know you have to go on must be hard. I had a blast reading it and look forward to the next story. I just hope it has more to it.
