When a professional relationship turns personal, it’s impossible to resist the law of attraction.

Alec Rowland is a high-flying lawyer in a London firm whose career is his life. He doesn’t have time for relationships and his sexuality is a closely guarded secret. After picking up a cute guy on a Friday night, Alec’s world is rocked to its foundations when his one night stand shows up in the office on Monday morning—as the new temp on his team.

Ed Piper is desperate to prove himself in his new job. The last thing he needs is to be distracted by a crush on his boss. It’s hard to ignore the attraction he feels, even though Alec’s a difficult bastard to work for.

Both men strive to maintain a professional relationship, but tempers fray, passions ignite, and soon they’re both falling hard and fast. If they’re ever going to find a way to be together, Alec needs to be honest about who he really is because Ed won’t go back in the closet for anyone.

Jay Northcote’s books and I have a topsy turvy relationship. I’ve either loved them, or they’ve just fallen under the it was “just ok” category. To be fair though his books have gotten better, and I can tell that his writing has grown. It was clearly evident in this book just how much it has. I adored this book. He delivered an excellent office romance.

My highlights:

    *The main characters. I don’t even know where to start. Alec, who at first comes off as cold, was the opposite. Watching (or I should say reading) Ed chip away at his wall was delightful. And Ed- he was amazing. Gentle yet strong.
    *The plot. I love when an author takes a familiar trope- in this case, office romance and makes it her own by making me forget I’ve read others.
    *The story was told from a dual POV.
    *The pace was nice and easy.
    *The conflict of the story wasn’t overdone and melodramatic.
    *The sexual tension was off the charts! The chemistry was amazing between these two.
    *It had humor.
    *The end. Totally left me with the warm fuzzies.

I think the author gave us the whole package: sweet, sexy, with a sprinkle of angst, and a lovely happily ever after. Highly recommend. Well done, Mr. Northcote! 5 Stars!

I’m a thirty-something Colombian mother of two. My favorite pastime is to get lost in a book. I’m more of a fluffy romance reader- though I do love an angsty read. I don’t often read Mystery/Suspense nor dark stories. I also NEVER knowingly read stories that don’t end in an HEA or at least HFN. I LOATHE cliffhangers with a passion and not a huge fan of stories with cheating, but it’s not a deal breaker.

My favorite tropes are:
-Best friends to lovers
-May/December
-Hurt/comfort/healing
-Opposites attract
-Humor (as long as it’s not slapstick type comedy)

My favorites authors are:
-Lane Hayes
-Santino Hassell
-Kade Boehme
-TJ Klune
-Heidi Cullinan
-NR Walker
-Eli Easton
-Amy Lane
-Keira Andrews
-Nick Pageant
-Annabeth Albert
-Jay Northcote
-Riley Hart/Nyrae Dawn
-Melanie Hansen

Some of my all time favorites stories are:

-The Five Boroughs Series by Santino Hassell
-Carry the Ocean by Heidi Cullinan
-BOATK Series by TJ Klune (anything he writes actually)
-Let’s Hear It For The Boy by TA Webb
-A Kind of Truth by Lane Hayes
-Strong Signal by Santino Hassell & Megan Erickson
-Superhero by Eli Easton
