“I never thought it possible to feel an attraction for anyone.”
I’m an artist and I have a new contract with The Golden Gallery. I’ve got best friends who get me and my jokes and a family who supports and loves me. What more could I possibly want or need? I have it all except, I just don’t know what it means to be in love. I’ve never experienced it nor been attracted to anyone in my life. I don’t think it’s a bad thing and despite the fact that most people prefer to slot me into the ace spectrum, I don’t necessarily see myself in that category. I am happy the way I am, content even or at least, I tell myself that, shoving away the idea that there’s something wrong with me.
“I never thought I’d ever be attracted to a man.”
You probably know me as the Billionaire Playboy. I come from generations of old money and started my first business venture at age nineteen. The Golden Gallery was my baby and I watched it grow into a huge success all over the world. The first time I set eyes on Xavier Fernando, my world was rocked and turned upside down. I couldn’t get him out of my mind and I tried to write it off as being impressed by his genius skills as an artist. It worked too until we bumped into each other again, literally, and the same heady feeling came over me. In an attempt to understand why I was feeling this way, I decided to get closer to Xavier, and to know the man behind the art.
This is book one in the trilogy for the Billionaire Playboy. I have to say this was a great introduction to this story and has left me intrigued and ready for the next book to see exactly what is going to transpire between these two men.
Xavier is an artist that is in college. He has been working on his paintings even though he still has two years of college left. He has an image in his mind and he just seems to have to get it out on paper. He does this for himself and not for others but I think that is what works so well for him.
Xavier is shocked when he gets a call from the Golden Gallery wanting to sign him as an artist. It was so unexpected that Xavier at first believed it to be a prank. But nonetheless he was interested in what they had to say and he he decided to go to the interview.
The offer completely blew him away. But he is smart enough to have his uncle (a lawyer) to look over the contract and make sure that there are no hidden loop holes or anything. When Xavier finds out that everything is on the up and up, he is ready to go.
What Xavier does not realize is that not only did he intrigue the gallery with his art but he also intrigued the gallery owner, Andre, as well. This is new territory for both men because Andre has never been attracted to men before and Xavier has never been attracted to anyone before.
How will these two men handle all the new changes in their lives? Can they figure out a way to make things work between them or are things between them going to be too much too fast?
This was a great first book in this series. This is more of a slow burn read I would say. I cannot wait for the rest of this series to come out. I am really excited to see what is going to happen between Andre and Xavier.
