Mark Cross is a junior in college working to pay his way through college while forgetting his troubles by partying and hooking up. He meets Scott and finds himself falling head over heels for a wealthy man who couldn’t be any further from his rural background. The mutual attraction is instant, but Mark, unwilling to put himself in a position where his heart is on the line, finds ways to bring up their upper-crust/working-class differences to torpedo their budding romance.
Scott Nolan feels old, even though he’s just thirty-four. Meeting Mark reinvigorates him and gives him a new sense of purpose. After a series of men who were only interested in his wealth and family background, he finally meets a man who doesn’t care about the family he comes from—in fact, Mark seems ready to blow everything up because he thinks they could never overcome their class differences. Scott must fight to show Mark that he doesn’t care about who has how much money, and what matters above all is that they could build something more together outside the bedroom.
Okay, so this wasn’t a bad story but wasn’t great either. Scott enjoys spending time with Mark but Mark always tries to find an ulterior motive or negative view since he can’t believe that Scot would want him for him.
Mark is so stubborn, I feel bad that he make Scott feel bad for just being a good guy and not listening. Scott did jump the gun a bit but he doesn’t overstep by any means. I thought there was a lot of emphasis on Scott’s family and money but we never saw them and only his everyday life. I was glad that they were able to work things out because I think they both need someone to lean on at times.
I like the cover art by Natasha Snow it gives a nice visual of Scott.
