“I think I just fell for my boss’s biggest rival…”
All Cam ever wanted to do was work for his favorite author Madeleine Stevens. But when a harsh review of her latest book is published by her rival Serge Faletti, Cam’s sense of loyalty sends him marching to Serge to demand a retraction.
“I can’t let anybody see who I really am…”
Serge is supposed to be writing the follow-up to his big hit detective novel, but the words aren’t coming. And knowing that his rival Madeleine is plotting against him isn’t helping. When he meets her assistant, the bookish, cardigan-wearing Cam, he is caught off-guard. How can he be so drawn to someone who should be his enemy? He is so worried about his reputation that he can’t admit his attraction, even to himself.
“I can’t trust you, but I don’t want to spend a minute without you…”
How can you trust your feelings when the man you’re with is your worst enemy? Things are getting real between Cam and Serge, but Madeleine’s scheming threatens to tear them apart before they have a chance together. Can Cam untangle himself from his boss and let himself be free to love? And can Serge put aside his worries over what the world will think if he is with another man?
(Booked Up is a 50,000-word standalone contemporary gay romance, complete with lots of heat and a happily ever after ending.)
Ah, what a funny, sweet story. :3 The idea of couple a totally opposite pair is totally hilarious and during the reading I was amused several times. :3 I really enjoyed the competetive character the story had. 🙂 It gave the story its spice and a bit drama, not too much, not too less. 😀
The main character were pleasant, I really liked Sergio’s/Serge’s vulnerability and his insecure. He is a really sensitive person and he captured my heart.
On the other hand I was also lost after meeting Cam. He is also such a sweetheart and it hurt to see how ill Madeleine treated him. >.<
It was sometimes a little bit rushed but I think it was in retrospect really fitting. 🙂
Madeleine, Cam’s employer changed from a noisy person to a hateful creature, a great character developement because the author did a great job in doing this in a realistic way. 🙂
Though the book is a stand alone it was so sweet to have a reappearance of our couple from Bromantic, as well as the mentioning of the change in the neighbourhood and that the mechanic shop changed into a art gallery – the impact of the actions in Driven. :3 ❤
