I didn't want it to end.
I really enjoyed the way the timeline mirrored the other books in the series, but from Marc and Darius' viewpoints. I'm going to have to start reading the whole series again :) one right after the other. Great job, Ms. Violet :)
Well-Tailored has ties to Silvia Violet's Thorne and Dash series but can be read on its own. Thorne and Dash are prominent characters in this story, so personally, I think you'll get more enjoyment from the story if you have Thorne and Dash's backstory. Both Darius and Marc were introduced in the Thorne and Dash series. Marc is Dash's best friend and has history with Thorne. Darius is Thorne's tailor and friend. The lives of these men are entwined, especially Thorne, Dash and Marc.
Marc is still working as an escort, but he's ready for a change in his life. When he accompanies Dash to pick up a suit, he finds an opportunity that seems meant for him. Darius is hiring an assistant, and it would be a great opportunity for Marc to get back to what he enjoys doing. But Marc is also attracted to Darius and wants to be more than just his assistant. When he finally decides to take the plunge and apply for the job, Darius gets to know him a lot more personally. Darius doesn't sleep with employees, so he takes the opportunity before Marc is hired to sleep with him. And then, Darius goes back to his arrogant and rude behavior. Marc, though, has a history of falling for the wrong men and no matter how Darius acts, Marc lets his feelings get him deep. Darius never falls for a trick, but working with Marc every day, he finds himself wanting and thinking about him more and more.
Marc had a difficult childhood and really is just looking for love. He wants what Dash and Thorne have, only when it comes to choosing men, he tends to pick the ones out to use him. Even though he's attracted to Darius, he has to consider his job, and the chance at a future he's always wanted. Marc had given up his dream of creating costumes, but thanks to Darius' help, he now has the opportunity to do what he loves. Despite how well-received his costumes are, he still is lacking the confidence in himself. Marc is an easily likable character from the very beginning. He doesn't do well at protecting his heart, but now he has Thorne and Dash's relationship to show him what he really wants. Darius is not very likable at first. He's rude, arrogant, and treats Marc terribly. Darius was hurt in the past and he decided to never allow it to happen again. Which is understandable, but I didn't like his push/pull with Marc. It really seemed he was no different than any of the men in Marc's past. But, all the time spent together, allowed Marc to break through Darius' walls.
I will say that this book is HOT! Darius didn't want a relationship, but he couldn't keep his hands of Marc and they steamed up the pages from early in the story. There was a lot of great banter between Darius and Marc. Marc may not have been able to turn down an opportunity to get naked, but he definitely was able to stand his ground against the sharp words from Darius. This story was well-written, and definitely one you should read!

Marc longs for a grand romance, but he doubts he’ll ever be that lucky. Then he meets Darius, an arrogant tailor who pushes all his buttons. When Darius offers him a job, Marc hesitates—he needs a direction for the future, not another man who doesn’t believe in relationships.
Darius lives by a few unbreakable rules: never sleep with employees, fashion should be simple, and romance is for fools. Marc, with his shimmery sweater collection, makes him want to break every single one.
They quickly give in to desire, but Darius wants to protect himself and Marc refuses to repeat past mistakes. It’s only when they let go of assumptions, that love has a chance to take hold.
Well-Tailored is a nice addition to the Thorne and Dash trilogy. Marc and Darius played an important role in Thorne's and Riley's love story, and now, they return the favor. In this story, we get to see some of the scenes from the previous book from Darius's and Marc's perspectives. Both stories run parallel, and as the author mentioned, this book can stand alone, but for maximum enjoyment, it's better to read them in order.
The MCs's relationship takes time to develop but their connection it's easy to see from the very beginning. The author gives us a more in depth view into the events unfolding since their first meeting to the HEA. Most of this we saw from Riley's POV in Personal Alignment but we get to savor Darius's and Marc's faults and dreams this time around.
The combination of Darius's dominant side and Marc's eagerness add spice to this story. They worked together well, not only in bed but professionally. They both see the potential in each other and with small details, they take care of the other. They were not looking for a relationship but couldn't get enough of each other. It's lovely to see them getting comfortable in their skins and building a space in each other’s' lives.
The story is well-written and we get to see all the previous characters, plus some new addition.
Greg Boudreaux continues to voice this series seamlessly. The characterizations stay constant, allowing the listener to get back into their world without delay. Their voices are as relevant and their personalities.
The cover by LC Chase goes perfectly with the story and the characters' descriptions. Also, it matches the Thorne and Dash series covers, but it keeps its individuality.
