Martin Graham built his business from the ground up with hard work and intuition. Due to a degenerative eye disease, he’s learned to rely on his other senses to feel out the competition. To realize his dream, he just needs to broker one last deal… and finally secure an assistant.
Brock Littleton is desperate for money—desperate enough take the job no one else wants: assistant to demanding, fussy, intensely private Mr. Graham.
Everything about Brock gets under Martin’s skin in ways he never expected, making him realize a successful business isn’t the only component to a happy future. But as Martin’s deal comes together, one of the prices could be the relationship with Brock that Martin is just starting to believe could be real.
I love reading a book about a character with a disability. This was charming.
Brock has finished college and can’t find a job. When a financial trading company contacts him with an opportunity for a job interview, he jumps at the chance. It’s not until he arrives that he realizes it’s just an assistant position. When he meets the man he’d be assisting, he realizes it’s more than just answering phones and taking notes. He’d literally be the eyes of the CEO and he can’t pass up the opportunity.
I felt like the relationship between Brock and Martin had substance and made it so much more real. From the start, Brock took on his personal issues professionally, like ensuring his tie and collar were straight. It was sweet and went a long way to solidify their deep attraction.
