Blake Davis is in the closet. And he's going to stay that way. Because if his father finds out he's gay, Blake could lose everything he's worked so hard to achieve during the last six years as CEO of Trinity Publishing, the fastest rising star in the publishing firmament. Not that coming out wouldn't solve a couple of problems. Maybe then his father would stop trying to set him up with yet another empty-headed, social-climbing girlfriend. And better still, Blake could stop using that escort agency when he wants a night of hot sex with a cute guy.
Will Parkinson has had a tough life so far, but he's back on his feet. Okay, so he's working as an escort - with benefits - to pay off his student loans, but that does have its advantages, such as the really hot guy who hired him. Yeah, Blake rocked his world last night - several times. So imagine how Will feels when he arrives to be interviewed for his dream job as PA in a publishing company, and the guy who's hiring is...Blake.
And then things get really complicated.

Cornell Collins is Excellent! Very sweet story!
This was one of the first books I read in m/m romance. I loved it! It’s a Cinderella/Pretty Woman story and it’s got elements of a rags to riches story like Annie, as well.
I loved that Blake, while closeted, is totally accepting of Will’s/Alex’s profession. Once they become a permanent thing, of course, he won’t share (don’t worry!) but before he can claim that right, he doesn’t try to make Will feel bad for supporting himself.
There are a LOT of things the reader has to accept as “happy coincidence” – the book being a hit, Will being his assistant, everyone at work being cool with “the gay thing”. But, beyond those issues, it’s a really sweet and very sensual story.
Something I love in romances – a couple who switches! And an alpha male who likes to be tied up!
This was a very sweet and wonderful story with many layers of happy in it’s HEA.
4.5 of 5 stars
Cornell Collins does a FANTASTIC job with this. He gave Will the deeper voice – which I didn’t picture in my head – but it totally worked. His British accent gives this that extra level of authenticity that you don’t get when you’re not from there. His pacing and emotions are excellent and overall this was a great way to experience this story.

The narrator was pretty good except during the sex scenes, when he used a creepy voice that was very unsexy. Other than that, and when he did the voice for the "bad guy" woman, he was a good narrator with a soothing British voice. He differentiates the voices of the men very well.
The story was fine and fairly realistic.
The rich MC, Blake, was kind of wimpy and lame initially when he was blackmailed and i didn't like the way he was going to put his career before his love before he found out he didn't have to make the choice after all.
However, all's well that ends well and the happy ending was pretty satisfying.
i liked the progression of the relationship between the two mc's pretty well, and the sexy scenes are pretty nice ( if you can tune out the weird voice).
overall, it is a decent mm romance and a good time filler, especially as part of the romance package.

boring trite and obvious plot topped off with really badly handled domestic violence and casual mysogeny.

Fabulous romance with hot sex, strong men and HEA
I absolutely loved this book! The men, Blake and Will, meet up in an unorthodox fashion, but its lust at first sight, and before long love, of course!
The story has everything: tough beginnings, a superb villain, restored relationships, a wonderful cast of supporting characters, spicy sex, misunderstandings, a proposal, the happy ever after we yearn for in romance-landia, and plenty more besides.
The narration is super, with excellent characterisation and emotive interpretation.
The story is engaging from the outset, I adored both main characters and was rooting for them from the get-go. I read/listen to lots of books. Lots. And it was refreshing to enjoy an English book, set in London, narrated well and so relatable, I felt like it was so real I could have been there.
I was given a free copy of this audio book by the author in exchange for an honest review.
