I’m married to the job and I like it that way… Until I meet him.
I really don’t have time to date with how attached I am to my career. I especially have to stay away from Brian, no matter what. Yes, he may be the sexiest man I’ve ever met but being with him will literally ruin my career. I’m not allowed to date football players as a sports journalist.
But for some reason, even though I’ve never been drawn to dating before, I can’t seem to stay away. He is irresistible to me and he’s pretty damn persistent too.
I have the money, the fame, and my dream job. So what’s missing?
Ever since becoming famous, every person I meet seems disingenuine. I admit, I’ve done my fair share of sleeping around but I’ve never found a connection with anybody. Everyone seems like they’re putting on a show for me.
Then I meet him, Ben. He seems different, he feels different. Everything about him screams unique and for the first time, I’m really falling. He may be wary of me at first but if it’s the last thing I do, I will win him over.
This standalone gay romance novella of over 30,000 words is currently on sale for .99 and has bonus material from two other books!
I left a few books by Hayden Hunt out because the stories, as good as they sound, weren’t exactly what I was searching for. This story was luckily a better one still a few aspects left me unsure and unsatisfied.
I had to think about it longer than other reviews what I liked and not liked about the book.
The plot itself was good, the insta-love was maybe a bit too fast still I liked the chemistry between Ben and Brian.
I have a problem with guys who have a crazy, bitchy ex and unfortunately Brian is stuck to one…
Also the way how Brian and Ben had their first sexual encounter contained aspects I would say are a “no go”, they let me cringe, on the other hand the relationship had parst which were sweet…
I will give this story 4 out of 5 stars, but these are really benevolent, because more “no go” events and I’ll have had to drop it to 3.5 stars.
