ADD to your Goodreads TBR:
After kissing his boss, a client and his roommate all in one day, Simon finds that his love life is about to heat up.
Getting a beautiful man to look Simon’s way is usually the hard part, but that’s before he breaks his own set of rules—his ‘off-limits’ list that keeps him sane and stable. In a single day, he kisses his boss, a client and his not-so-straight roommate.
Maybe Simon is a greedy boy who sees the best in them, but he can’t help but want all three of them in his heart and his bed. Yet beauty can be deceiving. One man betrays him, leaving him with the devil and the devil’s worst enemy. Simon’s first priority is keeping them from killing each other, but when lives are threatened and the city turns against him, it may become an impossible task.
The building probably had more light switches than any other in the city, but with night pushing against its windows, it was nearly pitch black except for the tiny bleak emergency lights spotted along the stark walls. Within the compartmentalized offices, a few computer screens buzzed, with their colorful screensavers bouncing along with dizzying monotony.
Simon could switch the lights on as he crept through the building, but then someone might look up from the street below and wonder what was going on.
The office building emptied at six o’clock sharp every day. One by one the light switches were flicked off, so the entire building went dark as people filed out at the end of their shift. The neighboring condos were bound to contain a few curious souls who would call the cops at the first sign of something out of the ordinary.
Which was something he didn’t wanted to risk when he wasn’t supposed to be in the office in the first place.
There were only a few company rules that he’d discovered since he’d started working in the grand building a few years before. The strictest of them all was that he was never allowed to work late. His boss had called it a perk. He probably hadn’t thought to warn Simon that the deserted halls looked like the inside of a haunted house after dark.
Not that I haven’t broken enough rules today.
The biggest rule should have been that he wasn’t allowed to kiss his boss. It should have been printed in giant gold letters at the top of his orientation papers, which he’d signed for human resources on day one. There had been the salary information, the confidentiality agreement and the listed restrictions to keep employees from stealing clients and going rogue.
There had been nothing about kissing.
Maybe he should have tried harder to pay attention to the sexual harassment video they’d made him watch that had been thirty years out of date? The boredom had been so complete that he had almost passed out in the tiny plastic folding chair.
The kiss hadn’t been his fault!
WHAT REVIEWERS ARE SAYING!
Kiss one (not his fault), was his boss Rubric. The boss needed it badly, or Simon had. Anyway somebody needed a kiss.
Kiss two (also not his fault, Leo cooked him dinner and gave him dessert). He was Russian, possibly mafia, so masculine, and so perfect.
Kiss three (probably his fault) Chris his straight roommate, devastated by a broken relationship, Simon only trying to make him feel better. Three men, each in their own way, very important to Simon. Too bad he can only have two.
This story was interesting but had a few holes. Their relationship, while very spicy didn’t delve into the mindset of Simon’s partners, so I felt the total story was lacking a bit of needed perspective.
The writing was well done and I did like all the players. Even the evil one who shall remain nameless.
In Simons words, “These two were the loves of his life and the banes of his existence at the same time.”
