When CEO Renner Bastion walks into a room, everyone keeps their distance. Well, everyone but the sarcastic, tattooed, Boston-bred security guard whose presence has kept Renner in New Jersey longer than intended. As if the unwanted attraction isn’t unsettling enough, Renner finds out his protector isn’t as unavailable as originally thought.
Milo Bautista just came out to his wealthy, ultra-confident boss, a man he secretly respects and admires…in more ways than he’ll admit. Worldly, experienced Renner would never look in his direction, let alone share some of that confidence he wears like a cloak, so Milo has set his sights on someone else to be his first.
Until Renner offers him private lessons in seduction...
Wow...I've been a longtime Tessa Bailey fan and she just combined my two loves...her writing with male/male romance. YES!! And this book did not disappoint at all. It was so, so good.
Renner is the boss. He's a business mogul, and as such, most of his employees aren't his biggest fans. The exception to that is Milo. Milo works security within the company. He's supposed to be keeping the warehouse workers safe, but he's made it his mission in life to watch out for Renner, too. Part of that has been because he's fascinated by the man and admires the way Renner is completely unapologetic about his sexuality. Milo has just had a sexual revelation...he's attracted to men and doesn't really know what to do with that. So he watches Renner and is trying to figure it all out.
But then they have a moment of truth...and come to an agreement. Renner will show Milo how to be comfortable with his sexuality so he can pursue the guy he has a crush one. Milo will teach Renner how to relax more so he doesn't risk another heart attack (yeah, Renner is the epitome of uptight, high-strung, executive.)
I love that this is all new to Milo, but he's so 'in' with everything that Renner does. He just wants more. And Renner is losing control all over the place...I love that. This book is all about losing control when the chemistry is right. Neither of these guys expect what happens. They are attracted to one another, but whoa...they are not expecting the explosiveness of the combination of the two of them together. It made for an amazing read that I loved.
I really enjoyed both guys. They're so different, but their attraction adds so much to the story...I couldn't turn the pages in my ebook fast enough. I loved them together.
Needless to say, I love Tessa Bailey writing in this genre. I hope we see more male/male romances coming from her soon.
I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.
