Danny Ip is in a slump at the investment firm where he works, but he’s working on a major deal that could help him get out of it. While meeting with a tech company that he’s interested in acquiring, Danny runs into Tobin Lok, who happens to be his best friend Wei’s younger brother and someone he spent a night with seven years ago. Tobin works for the company Danny is trying to acquire, which brings them into each other’s lives once again. As they begin a real relationship this time, without Wei’s knowledge, things become complicated. Danny struggles to find a balance between his professional life and his relationship with Tobin. Danny’s idea of success and his assumptions about what Tobin wants from him sabotage something special. Meanwhile, Wei’s bonds with Danny and Tobin both suffer when Danny and Tobin’s relationship comes to light. Both Tobin and Danny will have to decide what’s really important and what isn’t if they’re going to be truly happy.
VERDICT Recommended for readers who love steamy romance with a bit of mystery, or for fans of Cole McCade. Readers will stay up all night to finish this story.
