Jack Lawson grew up poor and can't forget it. He's a huge success in the business world, but it won't be enough until the image of "poor little Jack" is completely wiped away. When Jack runs into his old friend, Noah Mercier, he decides that Noah's sister, an up-and-coming movie star, would be the perfect evidence of glamorous success. If Jack can win Hayley, it will be clear to everyone, including himself, that he has truly arrived.
The problem with Jack's grand plan is that he's more attracted to Noah. Jack's never worried about the gender of his conquests, but Noah just isn't flashy enough for Jack's scheme to set the world on fire... unless Jack realizes he has practically no control over deciding who he wants - and even less choice in who he needs.

Fast, lighthearted read with mediocre narration.
I liked the few moments that Jack and Noah shared in Noah's teensy office. I did not like the tones and voice McClain chose to use when narrating Jack.
Yes, I love her style of writing.
Not at all, at least not in my opinion.
A different narrator perhaps.
Jack Lawson may have been struggling to rub two pennies together when he was younger, but he grew into a successful business man. He is actually interviewing for a new ad company when he recognizes an old friend from school, Noah Mercier. There is a spark from the beginning, for Jack at least, he’s never been one to limit himself to just one sex when he could have both. Noah however, takes a little more convincing.
When Jack learns that Noah’s sister is a sexy up and coming actress, Jack sets his sights on the sister. But he can’t stop thinking about Noah and his sexy, shy smile, his awkward streak and his love of volleyballs. The problem is, Noah thinks that Jack is straight and to separate himself from Jack so he doesn’t get hurt, he quits his job and stops returning Jack’s calls. Can Jack convince Noah he is sincere in wanting a relationship with him, when he’s just figured it out for himself?
A fast, light hearted read. I really enjoyed the banter back and forth between Jack and Noah when they were alone in that closet Noah was passing off as an office. The coffee’s and the vollyballs. The problem I had was aside from that brief period in the storyline, I never felt a real connection between them. The narration didn’t tie me to the characters either, in fact, the tones and voice McClain chose to use for Jack made him sound pompous and insincere. Sadly, this was just an okay audio for me. I had high hopes because I love Sherwood’s style of writing, but this story just fell a little flat, for me anyway.
