MM Romance Newly gay Max Tomlin is a genius when it comes to advertising but not so good when it comes to people Joe Bennett is hot easy going and inexplicably seems to like Max but his aeronautics company is in danger of a corporate takeover Can Max save Joe's company More importantly can Max keep his pants on in the face of Joe's super hotness This is a slash rom com basically The writing is fun the romance is sweet and the sex is hot There's no forced misunderstanding in third act just events falling naturally into place to create conflict Unfortunately I saw the metaphorical car crash coming from the first chapter and it made me nervous for the entire book I don't know if that's a personal failing or if Black could have been subtle but I suspect it's a little of both What makes this book stand out is Black's humor and her skill as a writer Max is especially enjoyable Yeah he's loud and arrogant but he's got a vulnerable underbelly that makes him loveable; he's aware of his faults even as he's blind to some of his better ualities Also the newly gay aspect of his character pays off in a way I wasn't expecting and it's very satisfying Joe on the other hand is a bit vague at first his voice wanders like he's not entirely sure who he is but he gets to be solid towards the endFour stars Great humor great sex great main character Lots of fun

The life of a creative genius isn't all it's cracked up to be not when said genius is Max Tomlin hotshot creative director of his own New York ad agency and slightly neurotic headcase Still reeling after a painful divorce he's been taking a walk on the gay side but that hasn't gone much better At least his agency. 35 starsThe first thing I thought while reading this book was “this author has definitely worked in Advertising and definitely lived in NY” Having worked in Advertising for a long time I usually shy away from books about the industry becausewellthey’re typically wrong when it comes to the details Lenore Black however has got her facts her descriptions and her story all right authentic even in the NY parts And that made it fun to readThe second thing I thought while reading this book was “I wish I had read this back in 2012 when I first added it” I think I would have REALLY loved this book back then because I was new to MM and this was exactly the kind of book that I would have devoured and appreciated After 400 books and 2 years later I liked it enough and it kept me entertained It just didn’t wow meThe third thing I thought while reading this book was “this is funny” Max the MC was hysterical and witty and self deprecating while being full of himself and I kinda loved him He is exactly the kind of Creative Directors I’ve worked with in the past and I loved that about himThe fourth thing I thought while reading this book was “I really adore this couple” Max and Joe were sweet and flirtatious and HOT and I ate it all upThe fifth thing I thought while reading this book was “What’s up with all the ‘yeah yeah’s and ‘you you’s and ‘no no’s ” The author did this weird thing were on NUMEROUS occasions the dialogue had these repeated words and it wasweird Especially the “yeah yeah”I tried to remember a time when that was the ‘in’ thing to do this was written 5 years agobut I can’t So it bugged meIn any case if you want a book that’s fun kinda funny sweet with some hot bits but that really just serves as a fillerin betweenernot trying to blow your mind or change your worldthis is a good one Oddly and sadly however I think it’s out of circulation because I can’t find buy links anywhere
