Rating: 4 stars out of 5
Fear of being like his unfaithful father has put high walls around senior litigator Asher Caldwell’s heart. Can former district attorney Zach Richardson knock them down to reveal the passionate man beneath the commitment-phobic workaholic, or will Zach’s own jealousy destroy what they’re trying to build?
A new life and a new love—that’s what Zach’s hoping for when he leaves the DA’s office and lets his friends give him a makeover. But the jury’s still out on whether the experiment was a success. His new look gets the attention of his boss and secret crush, Asher Caldwell, and leads to a seduction.
Unfortunately, to Zach’s horror he learns that Asher assumed he was a paid escort. Asher is equally mortified to discover he had sex with an employee. Even so, the encounter meant a lot to both men, and they want to give dating a shot. Their romance born out of mistaken identity might work if Zack can trust Asher to be satisfied with the love of only one man… and if Asher can trust himself.
I have really enjoyed these stories and I can’t help but think the characters are adorable. Asher has very carefully kept his emotions out of sex and has never tried at a relationship, the misunderstanding of Zach’s identity quickly has him breaking all his rules. Zach hasn’t had a lot of experience and it may be his insecurities that cause the most problems.
This story was a little different from the other in which we actually got to see these characters together and building their relationship during the story and I loved it. Asher is drawn into Zach’s orbit and you can see that even if it’s different from what he has always done before he doesn’t see a reason to fight it. I understood Zach’s insecurities and just wish he would have talked to Asher when their misunderstanding happened but then I guess you wouldn’t have had their big getting back together.
The cover art by Bree Archer is perfect and wonderful for this story.
