Event planner Levi Goode is positioned to inherit the newly vacated throne, becoming the in-demand party planner for Wilde City’s elite. Years of hard work and perseverance are finally paying off as Levi lands his next big fish, working with socialite Julia Freeman-Kingsley. Distracted by work and dealing with his head strong mother, an ex-Vegas-showgirl suffering from debilitating health issues, Levi has his hands full. Time for love or even the occasional one-night stand, is one aspect of life Levi hasn’t been able to master.
Sparks of interest fly during a chance meeting with a paramedic called to the aid of his mother, and thanks to Ruby’s meddling, Levi finds himself on a movie-date with the handsome Paramedic Jake. Personal and professional worlds collide when Levi realizes his new love interest is actually Jake Freeman, estranged brother to his brand new client. Discovering the man of his dreams already has a boyfriend, leaves Levi stunned realizing any hopes he had for something more with Jake were never going to be anything more than wishful thinking.
Struggling to downshift his expectations and remain friends with Jake while continuing to work closely with Julia quickly consumes all of his time and attention. Wondering if there will ever be a special someone to love him, is where Levi’s love story begins.
When I read the blurb for this story, I was intrigued. Was there going to be cheating? What constitutes cheating, is it emotional, physical or both? I wanted to see how the author would play this out and I have to say….Job Well Done!!
Levi Goode is a young man who is an up & coming party planner and is looking to take the throne. He’s poised and raring to go. He gets to opportunity when he’s asked to host a wedding anniversary and if he comes correct on this….BAM…He Is So In1! However, Levi has an ailing mother whom he worries about as she has multiple health issues. He is also lonely and not really the one night stand kinda guy. Levi is looking for the connection that he sees others have, even if part of him doesn’t truly believe that he can have that. He has become the opposite of how his mother lived her life…full out and chasing all the wonders of the world. Levi…he’s more down to earth and in need of having things ordered and well thought out.
Jake Freeman, I liked Jake. Here is a man who is really a good man. He wants to be on the front lines when it comes to helping people. He is a man of action in so many things and yet, when it comes to his relationship with Victor…he’s just letting things slide along. Jake is from a wealthy, prominent political family and when he decided that he wasn’t going to be used as a political pawn any longer…boom…he was out. The snide comments and the way in which his parents speak to him, it’s like damn!! It’s really more his father than his mother, however, she’s co-signed that behavior…so it’s on her as well. Jake’s twin sister, Julia…he loves her and she him. Jake is just this really great guy and if he were a real guy…I’d buddy up with him in a minute.
The secondary characters in this book…were pretty damn great. I loved Ruby, Levi’s mother. She is this wonderful mother who totally loves her son. Has accepted him from the moment she was pregnant with him. Angelo and Valerie…these two had me ROLLING!! I loved these two and when they were in the same room and feeding off of each other…Watch Out!!
I was really looking forward to these characters getting down and dirty. I mean, I waited through the ENTIRE Book before they even kissed and then…it was implied. I’ve not read a book by Ethan before, so I’m not sure if this is normal for him, however, I wanted to see the sexy times after the build-up of so much freakin passion and just the lustful air around them. DAMMIT!!! But that’s just me. I felt a bit cheated by that, but still.
So, I know what everyone’s true question is….Cheating. Well, I will say that you’re going to have to read the book. I don’t want to spoil it for you. You’ll be alright, swear!!
This was a fun little read on a Sunday early afternoon and I giggled and read portions out loud to my bestie, so overall…entertaining and slightly frustrating…but a solid read that left you with a nice sweetness that wasn’t overly sticky.
