Private investigator Mackenzie Williams’s newest client is everything he’s looking for in a guy—charming, beautiful, intelligent, and successful. There’s only one itty bitty problem—the guy’s not exactly gay. In fact, Jordan Channing is looking for a PI to follow his fiancée. The smart thing would be to thank Jordan for his time, turn Mr. Perfect away (don’t let the door hit you on the rump, thank you very much), and forget he exists.
Of course, Mackenzie has never been accused of doing the smart thing. Being smart aleck is more his MO. Relationships aren’t up his alley, never have been. So why’s he so inexplicably drawn to his new client?
Jordan has always been the high achiever, a man who lives in a focused, controlled, and carefully constructed manner. But for the first time in his life, he has to admit the impossible—another man is getting his engine running on all cylinders. Despite Jordan’s denial, it’s not long before he can no longer resist the strong undercurrents pulling them together. Now Jordan must decide if he can go against everything he’s ever known to have the only love he’s ever wanted.
What a delight! I absolutely loooooved Mac’s voice! His witty comebacks had me laughing out loud and smiling through and through. His impulsivity makes him blurt out whatever is on his mind, which is usually either R rated or something you’d expect to come out of a child’s mouth. Such an amazing character. The object of his affection is a by-the-book straight lawyer who starts out bicurious and ends up falling in love with Mac and his quirky ways pretty quickly. There is minimal angst, hot sex, and countless hilarious pieces of well written dialogue. Recommend!
