Title: The Intern
Author: Serena Akeroyd
Genre: MM Romance
Release Date: December 15, 2020
Sex comes with a price tag.
One I’m quite willing to pay.
In fact, I prefer it.
It’s easier that way, and in my life, I prefer ease. Prefer for most things to be transactional.
So when the intern disrupts my day, I’m not happy about it. I have a dark and dirty little secret he knows about. One that could destroy my reputation in a world where reputation is everything.
That makes him dangerous.
He could ruin me professionally, wreck my life, but the touch of his mouth to mine, the feel of him in my arms—they’re all I can think about.
Drunk on him, when I’ve always been sober.
The freedom in admitting that is intoxicating. Enough to make me feel drunk with the relief of finally being myself.
But what feels better?
He’s my boss. He holds my future in his hands in more ways than he knows, but he isn’t as free as I am. Doesn’t have the same freedom I do to own up to what he is.
Because of that, I know I’m losing him.
I can feel us becoming DOA.
But is he worth fighting for when he won’t admit what I am to him? What we mean to one another?
I guess you’ll have to read on to find out…
THE INTERN is a standalone contemporary MM romance, with an easter egg for fans of Serena Akeroyd’s novels.

Okay, so, this.story!, gaaaaaaaaaah, what an unexpectedly awesome surprised it turned out to be. Not because I do not hold the author’s talent in high regard or because I had low expectations going in of any kind. It surprised me because it was a full package of yumminess and heart and a whole bunch of *happy sigh* and I dunno, but I just didn’t see it coming till I was in it and it was glorious!
This is also one of those stories where you’re going to want to stab one of the leads in the eyeball repeatedly with an ice-pick … until you don’t 🙂 See! Add growth to all the things I mentioned above that make this story great! This was more than just a HEA romance journey and we had a front row seat to all of it. I know I sound vague AF but I’m not giving you plot points so … trust me? Lol
I just started my relationship with Serena’s words this year and so far she has made me a stupidly happy reader and I am looking forward to her continuing to make me stupid happy for a long time! Happy reading!
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This read was a total surprise and not what I expected going in. I really didn’t like Devlin to begin with; I thought he was brash, arrogant and a misogynist, but as you read on and you see the relationship develop between him and Micah, the layers are peeled away and you start to see a very different man emerge. I enjoyed seeing their relationship evolve especially how tentative and apprehensive they were with each other at the beginning. To see two grown, confident, but complex men almost floundering with what was their first *real* relationship was a sight to see and this was the highlight of the story. There’s a host of interesting supporting characters and a couple in particular that will really fire your ire. Look forward to some extremely hot encounters between the MCs as they navigate their new normal and be prepared for a rollercoaster ride of a read where your emotions will be all over the place.

Micah wants someone. He doesn’t care who. That’s why he’s in the back of a club in a dark room with a stranger. Devlin can only get he sex he wants in an anonymous place. He is after all English royalty and as the head of a publishing empire, being out isn’t an option. Then the lights come on, pushing their lives into something neither man had ever hoped for.
I would normally call this a heartwarming story but because of a certain plot point I can’t. The book had very strong main characters and a number of just as strong secondary players. Many things going on at once made for an interesting storyline.
Sort of insta-love (though Micah and Devlin would probably disagree with me). I did like that both men seemed to develop a more mature attitude after they got together. Their interactions were very steamy but didn’t overpower the story.
The only real issue I had was their inner monologue went on long enough that I had to look back to see what they were talking about.
I liked the book and would recommend it. [The reader should know there is a graphic scene that was unpleasant. (hide spoiler)]

Born in England, Serena Akeroyd is a true romance bookaholic. As a reader she will not touch a book unless she knows it has a happy ending, which makes her write the endings that your heart craves! This addiction, made her want to craft stories to suit her voracious need for steamy, sexy romance. She loves to write stories with plots twists, alpha sexy men, dark humor, and hot AF love scenes. Some are darker than others as she has a taste for the weird and the unexpected.
She writes MF, MM, Menage and Reverse Harem (also known as Why Choose romance) in both con-temporary and paranormal. But she has recently decided to concentrate more on contemporary MF stories, mainly with A Dark and Dirty Sinners’ MC Series and The Filthy Feckers Series.
