When a professional relationship turns personal, it’s impossible to resist the law of attraction.
Alec Rowland is a high-flying lawyer in a London firm whose career is his life. He doesn’t have time for relationships and his sexuality is a closely guarded secret. After picking up a cute guy on a Friday night, Alec’s world is rocked to its foundations when his one night stand shows up in the office on Monday morning—as the new temp on his team.
Ed Piper is desperate to prove himself in his new job. The last thing he needs is to be distracted by a crush on his boss. It’s hard to ignore the attraction he feels, even though Alec’s a difficult bastard to work for.
Both men strive to maintain a professional relationship, but tempers fray, passions ignite, and soon they’re both falling hard and fast. If they’re ever going to find a way to be together, Alec needs to be honest about who he really is because Ed won’t go back in the closet for anyone.
Another winner featuring all the hallmarks of a wonderful story from Jay. Well written and easy to read, this is a definite page-turner with fabulously hot sex scenes, sizzling chemistry, along with sexual tension between Alec and Ed. I loved it and them together. Their interaction felt real as did the awkward situation they found themselves in. At one point, though, I thought we were going to get a repeat of a previous plot point from Like a Lover when Alex visited his parents, but I need not have worried as the story went in a different direction. I loved the low angst and the uncertainty over their relationship status as they dealt with their feelings and the difficulty caused by Alec having wedged himself firmly in the closet.
