When a geeky accountant ties a confident, dominating lawyer up in knots, keeping him will become his toughest case.
Corey Williams’ life at work is pure hell since he stalked one of his colleagues in an attempt to secure a date. Thanks to office gossip, all his coworkers know what he’s done, and their jabs and cruel jokes just won’t stop. When his boss hires a lawyer to assist with a difficult client, Corey is determined to keep away from temptation and avoid further ribbing. But life never goes as planned. Instead of avoiding the man, Corey douses him in cold coffee minutes after Remington Yates sets foot in the office.
Remy only took the case because his boss forced him to do it, and Corey’s little accident turns out to be a welcome distraction. Overhearing Corey’s coworker’s gossiping, he learns about the man’s bad luck with men and decides to seduce the cute accountant. It’s only sex, and as soon as he’s finished his job, they will never see each other again.
Corey is smitten by his new lover, and full of hope to find love in Remy’s arms. Then office gossip strikes again and he pushes his lover away, trying to protect his heart. But what started as a convenient fling, turned into a matter of the heart for the confident lawyer. And he’s not ready to let Corey go.
If you enjoy a cocky man who engages in old-fashioned wooing, don’t miss this romantic read!
Corey Williams’ life at work is pure hell since he stalked one of his colleagues. All he wanted was for Richard to notice him and give him a chance on a date. But Corey carried it to excess, nearly breaking up Richard and his boyfriend.
Now, thanks to office gossip, everyone at the construction company where Corey works as an accountant knows what he’s done. Four months passed since the incident and till now he hadn’t had the guts to date another man. The constant jabs and cruel jokes from his colleagues aren’t helping to boost his self-esteem either. Then his boss hires a lawyer to help with a difficult client, and Corey decides to keep away from the stranger, no matter what.
Unfortunately, life doesn’t go as planned. Instead of avoiding the man, Corey douses him in cold coffee minutes after Remington “Remy” Yates sets foot in the office.
Remy, prestigious and successful lawyer, only took the case because his boss forced him to do so. He’s not interested in the construction company and its legal problems. But when a cute, geeky guy sloshes coffee all over his expensive suit, the younger man stirs his interest. Remy likes to play the field and he’s never shy to approach men to spend a night of hot sex.
Overhearing a conversation between Corey’s colleagues, he learns about the younger man’s bad luck with Richard. A dejected and affection-starved Corey is exactly what Remington needs to make this job at least a tiny bit bearable. He asks Corey out to dinner and seeks out to seduce him. It’s only sex, after all. And as soon as he finishes the job, they will never see each other again. Or so he thinks.
The successful, handsome man’s invitation to dinner excites Corey. After the bad luck he’s had with Richard, and a long dry spell, he’s eager to spend time with another man. Even if it’s just for the sake of some mutual pleasure.
When Remy asks Corey to stay the whole night, nobody is more surprised than the cool lawyer himself. Spending time with his casual hookups after the fun is over is nothing he usually indulges in. However, he finds himself unable to let Corey go.
After several weeks, Corey is smitten with the man. Sure, he’s secretive, but Corey loves the time he can spend with his new lover. Unfortunately, Corey has never been the man for casual affairs. Ignoring the nature of their arrangement gets increasingly difficult for him. He fears Remy sees him as a willing body to scratch an itch, while Corey hopes to find love in Remy’s arms. However, after the incident with Richard, he just doesn’t have the guts to tell his lover how he feels, fearing the man will run for the hills.
The tender yet possessive feelings his affair with Corey unleashes overwhelm Remy. What started as a convenient fling, soon turned into a matter of the heart for the confident lawyer. He never wanted a relationship or a boyfriend, but Corey wakes needs he never experienced before. Remy struggles with his feelings though, not knowing how to communicate them after all those years of sex without strings.
Then office gossip strikes again. Corey thinks his biggest fears, that Remy only uses him for sex and will leave as soon as he finishes his job, confirmed. Trying to protect his heart, he pushes Remy away and breaks up with him before the other man beats him to it.
But Corey has managed something no other man could in the past. He’s stolen Remy’s heart. And Remy is a man who knows how to fight for what he wants.
Using the old-fashioned art of wooing, Remy sends handwritten love letters and flowers to Corey’s workplace and home. In each letter, he reveals more about himself, writes about his growing feelings for Corey, and his wishes for the future.
Corey, touched by the romantic gesture, starts to respond to his lover’s letters. Over the course of two weeks, they don’t see each other but exchange letters and little gifts. When one of Remy’s letters contains the three magical words, Corey is sure his and Remy’s love will have a chance.
At the day of Remy’s last letter, they finally see each other again at Corey’s house and celebrate the true beginning of their relationship.
