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.

Really enjoyable story (though I would have tossed that secretary out on her butt so fast, I can't believe how compassionate they all were).
Great MCs - they were both truly interesting and when they got together, heck yes! The Epilogue is super sweet too.
I'm going to say... I did the audio version of this book and the narrator was terrific with his accents. Between the Australian guy and the women and all the different British accents, he was great. His sex voice however - just *ugh* horrible!
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.
