Reeve Nelson is determined to make it in Manhattan. He’s hardworking, dedicated and willing to put in the extra hours required to be successful at his new job at a prestigious real estate firm in the city. There’s no way he’s going back to small-town living and an ex-girlfriend who won’t let go. But his boss isn’t making it easy.
Leo Rodriguez enjoys his reputation as a ruthless businessman. He’s a lone wolf who’s scraped his way from the gutter to rebuild his life and launch a distinguished career on his terms. When an opportunity to expand in the market comes up, Leo wants the eager new agent with a sense of wonder on the project. But nothing goes quite as planned. Reeve expected to be intimidated and overwhelmed by Leo, however, the explosive mutual attraction and fierce desire between them is a big surprise. Neither man is looking for love and yet, something special just might happen if they can find their way…together.
A Way with You (Memories with The Breakfast Club) by Lane Hayes is the follow-up story to A Way with Words. It’s about Remy’s brother, Reeve Nelson, who has moved to the city and is starting a new job; it’s a fresh start for him. What he didn’t anticipate is being assigned to work under Leo Rodriguez. Intense, intimidating, but sexy as hell Leo Rodriguez.
I’ll start off by saying this novella did not go in the directions I was expecting. I thought it was an office novella, but it wasn’t at all. I won’t go into detail what happened, but it was a pleasant surprise that made me fall in love with Reeve.
As for Leo, who doesn’t love an asshole who goes after what he wants. Can you imagine all that intensity and sexiness coming at you? LOL
Anyhoo, some highlights:
-Writing novellas is an art form. Sometimes I think it’s harder than writing a full-length book and Lane Hayes did an exceptional job. She gave a complete story, which evoked lots feelings, in a short number of pages.
-The characters are well developed and experienced growth.
-The story is told from Reeve’s first person POV, but we were never left wondering what Leo was feeling.
-The chemistry was tangible.
-The story had a feel-good vibe with a pinch of angst.
-And the end was sweet. ♥
Can this be read as a standalone? Yes, but read A Way with Words. I highly recommend it.
All in all, this was a big hit. If you’re looking for a sweet, sexy story about taking chances, new beginnings, trust and falling in love, look no more. 4.5 Stars
