The Sunny Side

Blurb

Jonas Durand is successful, rich, and controlled. He owns a prestigious modelling agency and has the world at his fingertips, but a turbulent childhood has taught him to be focused and never deviate from a plan.

Dean Jacobs threatens that stance. He’s one of the world’s most sought-after supermodels, but he’s also laidback and lighthearted and free in a way that Jonas has never quite managed.

Dean has always been interested in Jonas and has never made any secret of his admiration, but from the beginning, Jonas put him in a neat little box labelled, “Don’t touch,” turned the key, and never looked back.

However, the universe seems determined to thwart Jonas’s plans. Over the course of one hot summer, the two men come together, and Jonas’s well-ordered life becomes something a whole lot wilder.

Moving from the glamorous worlds of London and Paris Fashion Weeks to the sleepy South of France, Jonas finds himself liberating partridges, chasing his supermodel, and falling in love.

From bestselling author, Lily Morton, comes a romantic comedy set in the fast-paced and snarky world of modelling. This is the first book in the Model Agency series.

Excerpt

“Oh god. Not you too.”

I frown at him. “Pardon?”

“You can join his fan club over there,” the policeman says. He gestures at the old woman who was just speaking to him. She’s now watching a man blowing bubbles with a dachshund dressed as a clown perched on his lap. The dog looks like he’s pretending this isn’t happening to him. “We’ll be bringing Mister Jacobs up in a bit,” he adds.

I stare at him. “He’s not being charged, then? My lawyer is on his way.”

“No need for that.” He leans closer. “He was really brought in just to keep the peace. No one was hurt, and as the hotel doesn’t want to press charges and neither does the lady concerned, then there isn’t anything that needs to happen. We just left them in the cells to sober up.”

“What exactly happened? Mr Jacobs wasn’t very forthcoming when he rang my assistant.”

“I’m surprised he could speak. He was rather drunk when we brought him in, and he’s slept through most of his time in the cell. I wish they were always that obliging.”

“Oh, he’s always obliging,” I say grimly.

He looks behind me, and as there’s no one waiting, he unbends a little. “Apparently, he was in a hotel room for the night and went to the bathroom. When he came out, he went right rather than left and ended up naked in the hotel corridor.”

I sigh and pinch my nose. “Oh god,” I say faintly.

His mouth twitches into a half-smile. “Then he compounded his error by letting himself back into the hotel room. The only problem was that it wasn’t his hotel room, and the old couple it belonged to were rather startled to find a six-foot-four naked supermodel trying to get into bed with them.

I’ve never been romantic. Just ask my ex-wife.

Since she broke up with me, I get my needs met any time I want, without putting my heart on the line. Exactly how I like it.

But when she is called overseas and leaves me with our child, my bachelor lifestyle ends faster than you can say, “Daddy, I want a pony.”

I need help.

Problem is, help’s come in the form of an incredibly hot nanny.

My employee.

Who is much younger than me.

And also … a guy.

I watch Scott care for my kid and can’t help feeling like he clicks into place in her life.

When he looks at me, though …  I get an entirely different feeling. One that makes me long for things I can’t have.

Like him.

Unmanageable is a contemporary m/m age gap romance about a starry-eyed nanny who wants hot-air balloon rides and singing telegrams and a grumpy single dad who most definitely does not.

What a joyous and uncomplicated romance this is!

UnmanageableMcAdam_ebookUnmanageable by Leslie McAdam

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved this book so hard! It’s a joyous read, very little angsting, no manufactured drama, just two men falling in love and making a family.

It stars Scott, who was one of Murphy’s possible dates back in Undone and who we last saw getting drunk with Jeremy in Counterpoint, and older single dad Luke and it’s swoony and steamy and made my heart happy.

The setting takes us mostly out of V&V for this one as Scott takes the job as live in manny for Luke.

Luke’s daughter Addie is beautifully portrayed too, not too smart for her age, not too babyish, I fell for her just as much as I did her gruff but secretly marshmallowy dad.

With a deft hand, Leslie takes the reader through Scott’s embarrassing “break-up” with the guy he’s seeing at the start of the book, through a strong friendship with Luke, as his love for life and pure innocence reminds the older man of what he used to be like before his marriage failed, and into a lifetime of happiness.

There wasn’t a bit of this narrative I didn’t like, even the “Third Act” tension point, which comes pretty late in the book, makes perfect sense.

Luke is running scared, so he inadvertently causes Scott to doubt himself and worry if he’s really in love or just imagining things with his romantic wishful thinking.

Fortunately, this isn’t left to stew and there’s an incredibly satisfying set up to the reunion and happy ending which had me smiling big time.

Throw in a lovely Epilogue and this book pops under Garrett’s as my second favourite so far!
