Thornwell Shipton is wealthy, uptight, closeted, and an incurable workaholic. A tragic love affair left him terrified of relationships, so he tells himself sex is better scheduled and paid for.
Riley Dashwood is young, easy-going, and comfortable in his own skin. He's a passionate baker and an aspiring chef, working as an escort to save up for culinary school.
They're clearly made for each other.
When Thorne hires Dash, it's lust at first sight. After a few scorching nights together, both men start to wonder if what's between them is more than physical, but their age gap and resistance to romance make them afraid to change their professional relationship to a personal one. Dash pushes Thorne to admit he wants things he's denied himself for years. Kinky things. Soft, caring things. Things that force him to open his heart, not just his body. To move forward, one or the other must take a risk and ask for what he really wants.

A May/December romance, with a naughty twist.
Yes I would. It's very well written and conveyed.
The way the relationship between Thorne and Dash developed slowly over time.
Shout out to Say Anything, the movie with John Cusack. Can't say more, you'll just have to listen.
I hate this question. The title the Author gave the book is perfect, why mess with perfection?
Oh but I seriously enjoyed this book. Violet wove an amazing story for Thorne and Dash and Boudreaux does a fantastic job of bringing these characters, the Author's words to life. Early on you realize that Thorne has this unnatural need to be in control of everything, except in the bedroom. He allows himself one night a week to acquiesce that control and allow someone else to tell him what to do, to help him release all the pent up anxiety and stress. That's where Dash comes into play, pun intended. What starts out as a strictly business relationship slowly evolves into so much more. Dash pulls Thorne out of himself, shows him how to unwind and live.
Boudreaux is an auto buy for me much like his alter-ego, Tremblay. I don't think there is a character he can't bring to life. He also has this uncanny ability to convey the characters emotions in a way that you can feel what they are feeling while listening. Of course, he's only as good as the story which is where the Author comes in. Violet wrote such a great story, a May/December romance with a twist. Definitely a must listen!
