And yet, it’s unreasonably enjoyable to vicariously experience their romance. I think one reason may be that unlike many “incredibly rich handsome charming man is attracted to competent intelligent well-cultured author-insert” tales, there’s no angry mood-swinging, much less threats or exhortations of any kind, and in all ways their relationship is as wholesome and as healthy as could possibly be.
Regards the matter of putting their careers ahead of their love lives, really this is not nearly so big an issue in the book as I thought it would be from reading the blurb; it really doesn’t seem to be a conflict, and in fact, they’re both able to quite comfortably help (or less euphemistically, outright solve) each other’s professional challenges; there’s a lot of him showing up on a white horse, though to her credit, she returns the favour a couple of times too.
All-in-all, this is a much more light-hearted work than I had expected it to be, but no less enjoyable.
And then the coup de gras; talking about their same sex experiences. If I wanted to read about gay sex, I would read a gay romance. I'm hetrosexual, I find that to be a turn off. I'm putting the book down. My time will be better spent anywhere else.
Darby is a politician’s daughter who despises the corruption she has had to live with while her father is in office. She had to keep her relationships above question because any harm to her father’s reputation meant install destruction to her boyfriend.
Michael just wanted a companion who could ward off the aggressive advances from other women and an intelligent woman he could spoil. As their friendship progresses, they continually work to prevent it from getting complicated.
They build off each other’s friendship and find that they are able to boost the other’s career. But the reader continually wonders which will be the ruling factor in the end, the career or relationship.

Stop right there! This “romance” has a safe word for either of them to end the relationship-that-isn’t-dating, and some of the sex scenes made me think Darby and Michael needed one for those too! What is the safe word? Do they use it, or is this a romance that works against the odds?
