Aaron Baker has a problem. His online clothing company is under attack. Whilst MC Securities tackle the breaches in security, he asks for an agent to pose as his fake boyfriend. He doesn’t bargain for getting a snarky, ex-marine with sad, blue eyes and submissive tendencies.
Dumped by his boyfriend, Finlay Masters concludes that the best, and safest, place for him is to return to the closet. Kicked out by his parents as a kid for being gay, closeted in the army for fifteen years, body wrecked by an explosion that cost him his job, he isn’t the best bet for any kind of relationship. Even a fake one.
As the investigation mounts, Aaron wants more, but Finn has no faith in love, never dared need anyone. Aaron talks of how lucky he is to find him, but Finn knows if he is to have a chance at a relationship at all, he needs to find himself.
Oh man, this one pulled at my heart strings. Finlay just needs someone to love him and be there for him no matter how much he likes to think he doesn’t and is afraid of being hurt. Aaron is losing his relationship with his son and having problems at his company when Finlay comes in to help they find they can both help each other so much more.
I felt for Finlay and how he has lost everyone in his life, even his most recent ex put a wall between him and his only friend. I hurt as I watched him working through his thoughts and worries but was so glad that Aaron would be there to hold him up in the end. Aaron poured himself into his business not realizing how much his son needed him at the time but when trying to fix the problems in his company Finlay helps him to take a step back and realize what’s really important. Finlay getting back some of that which he thought he had lost probably went more towards him finally admitting his feelings towards Aaron than he would ever have been able to admit. I am loving this series and look forward to other books.
The cover art is great, I love the visual of Finlay and how it’s similar in style to the previous book but also different.
