Jayden was just wanting to help his foster mother get her dream. Her dream was to see Jayden do well and find a man that would make him happy. He figures he would get a job that would keep her healthy and safe, but he had not expected to fall in lust with his straight boss Isaac. They start to become friends and his feelings are starting to escape him. That is until Silas Senior tells Isaac and Silas Junior that they are both taking over the company. Isaac had just felt down and admitted to Jayden who he truly is. It makes Jayden happy to know that he was not lusting after a straight man after all, but it also did the exact opposite also. He didn't want to be talked about through out the company. He didn't want to be made a joke of by the others in the office.
When his mother ends up in a diabetic coma, they run to the hospital and Jayden admits that he wants Isaac for more than just a friend. Now they just had to figure out how to manage that at work. They made a great looking couple. At first I didn't understand about him being married but once I got into the story I understood perfectly. I loved the way his wife kept pushing him into dating, and he would tell her the guy she was dating wasn't right for her. You could tell that they were best friends from the first chapter. I love that they could do that for each other.
It has the perfect mix of happiness, anger, fear, angst and so many other feelings I can't even name. This story gives you all of that, two very sexy men, feisty attitudes, crazy bosses, a quirky wife, excitement and just a bit of heat. I would recommend reading this story. It starts off a bit slow but heats up once you get into it.
The blurb and cover is what got my attention but the story is what lost it. The blurb perfectly states what is going to happen in the book but really the situation wasn't that dramatic or elements of it was quickly drop for the romance. The book is really about a closeted men in a lavender marriage and who's all about revenge until he meets Jayden. Jayden is college student looking to get this internship at Isaac's company to jumpstart a goal to get his adopted family into a better life.
I felt that the excessive reference to Jayden's attractiveness was bit out of control especially the women in the office. I get that he is attractive but having almost everybody he came into contact with bluntly mentioning it was OTT. It seems that all of Jayden's success was all because of his looks not about what intelligently he could bring to the table. But i did like the MC Jayden and especially his interaction with his family.
But I must say I wasn't here for Isaac and the way he tried to manipulate Jayden. I wasn't believing his love for Jayden if you consistently connect the physical benefit of this relationship. The use of referring words like "boy" and "kid" to Jayden by Isaac just age Isaac and added a bit of ick factor.
Overall the slow burn work for me but even one likable character could not hold this book against so many unlikable characters.
