Briar nails another 5* romance with this delightful office-based one
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I’ve 5*-ed every book Briar Prescott has written so I think that’s a pretty good indication of how much I rate her writing.
I’ve been waiting for this book with bated breath, Gray’s uptight older brother meets his match when his sharp-tongued PA Jamie proves too hard to resist.
Of course, it’s not quite that simple, instead Briar gives the reader an absolutely beautiful romance between two men who couldn’t be more different if they consciously tried.
Connor is repressed with good reason, he’s an introvert who was forced to be social by parents who didn’t understand him. Then he had to bring up Gray after their parents died, so he’s had responsibility shoved on top of that quiet nature.
Jamie isn’t an idiot, he’s outgoing, a bit of a joker and he’s 13 years younger than his boss. But he’s also loyal, adaptable, and he knows there’s more to Connor than he lets out.
Watching the barriers come down is a wonderful thing as Connor gets embroiled in Jamie’s “dating experiment” and he begins to open up.
There wasn’t a single thing I didn’t love in this narrative. From catching up with Gray and Kai, seeing Jamie’s friends Max and Anders, and visits with Connor and Gray’s canny Gran, who had an inclination Connor’s feelings might be more than just friendship.
The smexy times are something else between them. It starts off scorching hot, with edging and mutual exploration but rapidly becomes more. More emotion, more care, more soul searching emotion.
Honestly, I could wax lyrical about the pair of them until the cows come home. Instead, I’ll just say don’t miss out on this truly fabulous book.
It’s funny, it’s sweet, it’s insanely steamy, it has heart and it makes you all warm and fuzzy. The Epilogue is awesome too!
