The story here picks up with Jude, last seen in Rule Breaker as Dylan’s model roommate, in the afterglow of a casual hookup with Dean. Flaky Dean, who has a few very lonely working brain cells. Everything is good, until the ceiling collapses and the upstairs bathtub comes to rest in the middle of Jude’s apartment. Needing a place to stay, Dean offers up his step brother’s house, telling Jude that he’d make the arrangements. Of course, this never happened, so Jude shows up to find a pink house and finds Asa in that pink house. Asa, the famous actor. And his son, Billy. The house is in slight chaos, Asa has lost his assistant and needs a new one. In exchange of a room, Jude will fill in. If he’s capable. Asa has dealt with models before; his hopes aren’t high. The building of the relationship begins here and slowly builds with every misconception, conversation and interaction. The banter between Jude and Asa has a little snark and is fun to read.
The cast of secondary characters is amazing. Billy is wonderful, at times seeming older than his years. as is Peggy. Amos is such a curmudgeon that he’s a hoot! Dylan and Gabe make an appearance here, and it was wonderful to see them again.
This is book number two in the series. It could be read as a standalone, but you’ll get much more from the story by reading book one first. And actually, you want to do yourself a favor and read it. I loved it and you will too. This author has become an auto buy for me, she is that good.
We have two men who have been hurt. One is carrying a heavyweight, and the other has been betrayed in the past. In the middle is a funny little boy who will steal your heart.
-ASAAAAA! Oh my gosh. Tall, dark, handsome, kind, funny, and sexy as hell. This man turned me into putty. Good lawd!!!
-Jude. He certainly lived up to the image I had in my head of him from RM. He was every bit as loving and loyal as I had built him up, and his sense of humor was a big bonus.
-Banter. Calling all banter lovers! Just like in book 1, that hilarious British humor carried into this book. Lily Morton is one funny lady. I imagine she must keep her hubby on his toes.
-Relationship development. My favorite part of this story. I got the feeling that I was witnessing these men falling in love and becoming a family. It was lovely and heartwarming.
-Chemistry. The attraction was palpable from their first meeting, and it only grew from there.
-Billy. Billy is Asa's son and having a child in books is tricky-it either works or it doesn't. In this case, it does. His presence in the story never became overwhelming and annoying, and I loved the little guy. He was precious.
-The epilogue. The end had me crying happy, sappy tears.
Can this be read as a standalone? Yes, but don't. Read Rule Maker! You won't regret it.
All in all, I'm giving Deal Maker 5 Big Stars! I love when books make me feel an array of emotions. Here, I laughed, I cried, I got hurt, and in the end, was left incredibly happy.
P.S. I can't wait for our resident redhead's turn!
“My Jude. My best friend, my lover and my heart.”
This book made me swoon! And I don't friggin swoon!!!
Jude is a reluctant model, working the career because it pays well. When his apartment gets flooded, he needs a place to stay other than the sex filled apartment of his best friend. A fellow model gives him a tip, leading Jude to actor Asa.
Asa loathes models, everything they stand for. So when he takes Jude in he makes it clear he thinks Jude is dumb and self involved because of his profession. So Jude decides to make it interesting and plays along, fully intending to make Asa's life hell.....
“Everyone is entitled to love who they want, and people aren’t weird just because of who they love. No one is weird."
After really enjoying Rule Breaker last year, I knew I wanted to read Jude's story. And wow, personally I think Lily Morton outdid herself! While my tastes run toward angsty, I fell in love with this sweet and swoon-worthy story. Jude and Asa were amazing together, I had a constant smile on my face when reading this book.
Lily Morton is an author I will be automatically one clicking in the future. If you love MM romance you need to start reading her books ASAP!
"Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage."
