ghs8956 4.0 out of 5 stars A sexy read that will satisfy your book needs. Reviewed in the United States on September 12, 2014 MY REVIEW This is a short read but that doesn't hurt the story at all. I really enjoyed this fast paced and entertaining story. Evan has lost everything. His father is in prison, his mother is in treatment. He has no money and has to work a menial job in order to pay for his mom's care. He applies to be the personal assistant to businessman, Brian Donoghue , by sending his resume and picture. Everything changes after Brian notices the younger man's picture. Brian wants Evan to work during the day as his personal assistant but at night, yeah, that's a whole different story. Evan will be Brian's submissive during the evening hours. Evan steps into a whole new sexy and kinky world. There is an instant electricity between the pair and one night of passion leads to a very unconventional relationship between the two. There was a lot to like about this story. I adored Evan, who had a boyishness and innocence about him. Anytime that he was near Brian the sexual chemistry level went up about 3,000 percent. The author excels at writing fun, sexy and at times emotional dialogue. Sometimes, I just want a story that I don't have to invest a lot of time on but still satisfies my need for a sexy read. This book does that for me. 4 out 4 stars
