BLURB: Blake Davis is in the closet. And he’s going to stay that way. Because if his father finds out he’s gay, Blake could lose everything he’s worked so hard to achieve during the last six years as CEO of Trinity Publishing, the fastest rising star in the publishing firmament. Not that coming out wouldn’t solve a couple of problems. Maybe then his father would stop trying to set him up with yet another empty-headed, social-climbing girlfriend. And better still, Blake could stop using that escort agency when he wants a night of hot sex with a cute guy…
Will Parkinson has had a tough life so far, but he’s back on his feet. Okay, so he’s working as an escort – with ‘benefits’– to pay off his student loans, but that does have its advantages, such as the really hot guy who hired him. Yeah, Blake rocked his world last night – several times. So imagine how Will feels when he arrives to be interviewed for his dream job as PA in a publishing company, and the guy who’s hiring is….. Blake
What a fantastic story! I can’t say anything different because this story has it all. Excitement, loving, curiosity, sexiness, conversation and so much more. You start reading it and you don’t want to stop, simple as that.
When you are first introduced to Blake, it’s at his job as a publisher on his 30th birthday. Running the company has been his sole purpose for the last six years, ever since he took over for his father in every way except in name. Slowly losing hope that he will be in official control at some point, he still enjoys his work and he likes the team of people he’s gathered around him to work with. Getting to know them is part of the fun of the book.
Celebrating his birthday, Blake decides to treat himself to the services of J’s, a professional, discreet escort service. He spends the night of his life in the arms of escort “Alec”, right down to encouraging him to stay the night.
Neither of them is expecting to meet each other again so soon when “Alec” whose real name is Will Parkinson, shows up at Trinity publishing to interview for the position of Blake’s PA. Will expects Blake to blow off the interview but in spite of their unusual start, Blake decides to hire Will for the position.
With both of them not being out, they struggle to fight their growing attraction. Things take a turn when Will nurses Blake through a heavy migraine attack. It leaves Will hurt and confused after some unconscious, misplaced comments by Blake.
After Blakes apologies, Will asks him to read his story; one he wrote that tells his own tale of how he grew up and how he got to the point in his life he is now. That openness brings them together in a hidden relationship.
Everything goes to hell when Melissa, Blake’s self-appointed girlfriend, finds out about them and uses that information to blackmail Blake into marrying her by threatening to tell his father about him being gay. The threat of losing everything he’s worked so hard for causes Blake to push Will away and shut himself off from his friends and colleagues at well.
Will, on the other hand, being frustrated with unwanted advances, outs himself to get them to stop.
Wanting their last time together to spent to the fullest, Will invites Blake to an sex orgy, knowing how much Blake enjoys watching those videos on the internet. It has the unexpected result of showing both men how much they only want to be with each other.
When Blakes best friend Dave asks them to pose together for a photoshoot, it opens up Blake’s eyes to how deep both their feelings go and how much he doesn’t want to lose that. When Karen, the woman responsible for the unwanted advances Will accuses him of assaulting her, Blake decides he’s had enough and outs himself in front of his staff and his father.
Grateful for the acceptance of his father, Blake is finally made official owner of the company. He makes plans that will ensure Will knows how serious he is about their relationship while dealing with Melissa in one go.He throws a New Years Eve party with absolutely perfect results.
Worth mentioning is the epilogue that tells their lives 5 years in. I especially liked to read about their relationships with that people that become close to them.
As I said in the beginning its an amazing, enthralling story. It hooks you quickly and keeps you involved until the very last word!
A definite 5 stars for me …
Buy the book and enjoy it to the fullest.
