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.
This was one of my first book from Rawiya and I really liked it.
This is the story of Isaac, a gay man married to his female best friend, and Jayden, a graduating student that has the chance to work as an intern in Isaac’s important advertisement agency.
They meet and spark flies but nothing is going to be easy. First, Jayden has a painful past and he wants to succeed with his job because he wants to take care of his adopted, and now very sick, mother and take her away from their “not so great” neighborhood. Second, Isaac is out only to his best friend/wife Debra and he doesn’t want to lose his chance to become partner of the ads agency his father and his partner founded years ago. His father is dead and Isaac wants to take his father’s place.
Jayden wants Isaac and Isaac wants Jayden but Jayden doesn’t want to lose the chance to learn and have the job he has always dreamed of because he’s involved with his boss: he wants to earn his success and not being someone that has privileges because he sleeps with his mentor/boss.
There are different kinds of love, pain, sadness, heartbreaking all in this book but don’t worry, they will have their HEA.
Something that bothered me a bit was Isaac calling Jayden “kid” most of the times: calling the man you want kid? Really disturbing.
But, like I said before, I really enjoyed this lovely story and Rawiya showed us that we don’t need “big” words to write a very deep and good book.
I give 4.5 to 5 stars.
I'm giving this book 2.5 - 3 stars.
Jayden is a young man about to finish his college education and has taken up a paid internship with a large advertising company. His life goal is to see him and his foster Momma in a safer neighbourhood. He has a great work ethic and wants to make his way up in the world.
Isaac seems to have the perfect life. He is an executive at the advertising company and married to a beautiful woman. But it's all fake, he's married to his best friend not his lover and his goal is to take over the company he thinks has been stolen from his father.
When Isaac meets Jayden he decides he must have him knowing that might risk the facade is put up. But Jayden won't compromise his goals for anything.
Sounds like a good set up yeah, so why didn't I give it more stars? Well I hated Isaac. He was selfish to both Jayden and his wife (Yes she knows he's gay but they're supposed to be best friends but he never treated her like a friend). He thinks he is God's gift to men and the fact that wants Jayden means Jayden should fall down at his feet, thankful. He doesn't care about anyone else's possible consequences of his affair but his own. Especially when he first meets Jayden, he's very patronising, calling him Son and Boy, just to assert his position over him. He's possessive when he has no right to be.
Although I enjoined the flow of the book and most the writing, some of the dialogue just seemed so fake and unrealistic. Also some of the scenes just wouldn't happen in real life <spoiler>(Best friend have been allowed to sleep in the ICU room with his momma but he's not sure he's even allowed in, or not going to visit her as soon as he arrives at the hospital or straight after the doctor has left)</spoiler>
I also didn't like the conclusion. After sitting back and thinking about it for this review, I can see why that conclusion was made so the MCs could be together. But throughout the book Jayden, who made the decision, was never included in the discussions <spoiler>about how family can't come first</spoiler>, nor were we told second-hand that he'd had that discussion, so I don't understand why he made that decision.
Overall, I think the pretense of this book is great, but my personal dislike for the MC, and my own inability to fathom why certain things happened means that's why this book doesn't rate too highly for me.
