A new real estate agent gets more than he bargained with his first client…
I’m desperate to make a fresh start as a real estate agent after leaving my alcoholic boyfriend of way too long. Getting a call to list a house while parading as a hot dog for a few bucks seems like my lucky break.
Then things go sideways. My apartment is broken into and burglarized. Getting caught half-naked while squatting in my own listing is a low point. Seeing the sexy-voiced stranger who is now my client — and his gorgeous, cold boyfriend? — major bummer. But hey! I might sell a house … if we can ever get it in decent shape for the market and all the odd questions surfacing about my client don’t get in the way.
I’m a washed up US marshal turned bodyguard, and even that’s lost its appeal. A leave of absence to deal with a house i inherited from my great-uncle seems like a good opportunity to get my head straight. But then my boss pulls me aside and asks me to take on a witness in danger. We’d be off the grid, so to speak. The guy is a criminal, but he’s young and gay, so we set up a cover as a couple. Might seem risky in Kansas, but All the gossip about those gay guys will make a great smokescreen to our true secret: Lee is a target of the Dragon Boyz gang, and I have to keep him safe until trial. Of course, I wasn’t counting on the gorgeous blond, blue-eyed Realtor who makes me want something more in my life. When he starts asking questions, do I set him straight or risk losing him for good? And then there’s still those gang members to think about.
Story includes inappropriate attire, gunfights, flirting while in a fake relationship and male/male naughtiness.
This really reminded me of David, Renewed. It had that same comfort feel to it. Yes, the story and the characters were quite different, but with the house remodeling and the crazy ex, yeah, it just reminded me of it.
Reid is at a place in his life where he needs to figure out where to go. He is no longer a Marshal and his security job didn’t pan out that well. Just as he’s about to take a leave of absence his boss asks him to take on one last job. The leave of absence could become a paid vacation then.
And that’s how Reid finds himself in the house he inherited from a long lost uncle, together with the witness he is supposed to be protecting. Reid thought it be a good cover to pose as a gay couple since both him and Lee are indeed gay.
But Reid didn’t expect to fall for his real estate agent.
Camden has the shitiest luck of all mankind. He is being evicted out of his crappy apartment after someone broke in and stole his father’s baseball cards, his new job as a real estate agent is not going well, and his best friend’s boyfriend is not happy with him crashing on their couch. He is only making money with his job as a singing hot dog these days. And now he has a crush on his one client, who has a live in boyfriend!
This book was fun! I really liked Camden and how he dealt with his terrible luck. I laughed my ass off when he was working as a hot dog and encountered some new clients. I don’t think anyone expects to find their real estate agent working as a singing hot dog. 🙂
Because of all the secrets being kept I was a bit scared that this would be an angsty read. But that wasn’t the case! Camden and Reid do flirt a bit uncomfortably while Cam thinks Reid is still in a relationship (it was more Reid flirting and Camden putting a stop to that), but when something finally happens between them, there are no more secrets. So that was good.
This book was definitely a fun read. It’s not slapstick funny in any way, but I thought the parts with the sarcastic Lee were hilarious.
“God,” he gasped, “that was incredible.”
“That was—” I started only to be interrupted by Lee’s voice outside the door.
“Loud!” he called. “It was really fucking loud.”
“Crap,” I whispered, cheeks flushing.
“Sorry!” Reid called out.
“It’s okay,” Lee said. “I jerked off to your moans. Thank Camden for me. It’s always the quiet ones who are freaks in the sack, huh?”
This had a bit of everything, fun characters, a nice romance, hot sexy times, and some action.
