This is my first book by this author and overall, I will give it 3.5 stars.
This story is about Zach, who is a newly graduated guy looking for a job. He is single, and his only family is his sister, brother in law and two nephews. He and his sister are very close since their mother died and they depend on each other for support. Zach finds a job for a tele-communications center of sorts, where he encounter’s a jerk of a man named John. Zach starts his job and is in training, and in the midst of his new job his life is turned upside down and he is left to raise his nephews. John is a jerk who seem’s to have it out for Zach, nit picking every little thing he does or doesn’t do. At times it is all Zach can do to keep his sanity, especially with John on him ALL the time
This book is totally from Zach’s POV. It was slow going in the beginning, and a ton of detail was given about his job, which, honestly, I found to be a bit tedious. John’s personality, even when he was trying not to be a jerk, was almost a little unbearable for me. And some of his actions towards Zach I found to be……kinda shitty, if I am being honest. John was not my favorite character and I think Zach deserved better. Since this was entirely Zach’s POV you get nothing really, on who John is and I think it would have went a long way for me to get to know him better, from his POV.
When you got away from the ins and outs of the job, and these two were together, the book was enjoyable. Despite the stuff that goes down at work (which, I think could have been weaved in a little better, had we had more from John’s POV), these two are able to get what one could call, a HFN. The ending was rather…sudden, with no real conclusion. So, while I mostly liked this book, there were several things I wish had been different with the story.
A lover of M/M and M/F romances she believes everyone deserves to be happy, healthy and loved.
