It starts out simple enough with Andrew and Leo having a great early morning ‘celebration’ for Leo’s birthday. Andrew has made a few surprise arrangements for Leo’s day, one of them being an encounter with a talented violinist Leo meets in the subway. Leo then heads off to work where there is drama surrounding a few enemies within the foundation where he works. Seems they don’t like the fact that he is gay and has a partner. Later on there is another tryst with the violinist only this time it’s a happy ménage. It ends with more office drama where Leo saves the day and triumphs over his enemies.
Maestro is a short read but in that small amount of time, I feel the author gave us quite a bit of info regarding Andrew and Leo for that moment in time. Andrew comes across as a former wild child but has changed (most) of his ways for Leo. Leo I found to be very likable and accepting to Andrew’s creative ways. Throwing Mel into the story added just the right amount of spice not only in the sex department but also to the dynamics of the story. T Leo’s enemies not liking his lifestyle choices and the drama that happens in the office added a nice balance to the storyline.
If I had to gripe about anything, it would be how abruptly I felt the story ended. One minute Leo is getting the upper hand on his enemies and then…the end. What? Hang on. That wasn’t quite a HEA nor can I call it a HFN ending. I can only guess everybody had road off into the sunset all smiles from that ending, so instead of reminiscing on how much I enjoyed the story, my brain is hung up on the ending.
I received this book from the JeepDiva for the express purposes of an honest review. The opinions and rating of this review are solely mine.
Stars - 3, Flames - 4.5
There's also a terrific outside plot, where Leo's life and his work as a society event-organizer and fundraiser runs square into some very old-fashioned notions of social control. Leo's got quite the set of fangs when cornered, and here he has to use them. In the most socially correct way, of course.
I found the length was working to drop chunks of backstory in, which affected the pacing for me. It provided context for the men and their lives.
The story was definitely hot and ends with a cheer for Leo and great hopes for the three of them together.
I hope this author writes more about these characters. Every page suggested avenues to explore - what happened before Maestro, what happens next. If she writes more about these guys, I'll be lining up to read it!
ARC given for an honest review.
