Two years ago, Jeremy Lanzo’s life almost fell apart when he fell for his boss and the golden prince of McIntyre Corporation, Benjamin McIntyre, the Third. After being ruthlessly rejected, he swore off the blue-eyed blond and did everything in his power never to cross paths with Ben again.
Now the two of them have been chosen to lead the company’s largest project to date; a lavish hotel in Sydney, Australia. Working and residing with Ben is difficult enough, but Ben’s continued attempts to make amends and re-kindling their broken friendship may prove more tempting than either of them can handle.
I find myself going into every Sam B. Morgan book hoping for the same feels as Rookie Move and I realized that is doing a disservice to this author. I can’t keep comparing every single book to something that I found exceptional. I realize that. With that said, Love by Design is pretty stankin’ good. I really enjoy this author.
Ben McIntyre is good at his job. Probably one of the best in his field what he doesn’t need is distraction. And the company would think starting a romance with their lead designer a HUGE distraction but some things cannot be helped.
Jeremy Lanzo fell hard for his boss Ben 2 years ago. Rejected, he’s pulled himself up from his boot straps and moved on. What he doesn’t anticipate are all the old feelings still being there when he and Ben are forced to work together on a project overseas.
Both men battle their feelings but are helpless to do anything about their attraction.
Riddled with responsibility Ben struggles with doing what is best for himself vs. what is best for the family business.
This friends to enemies to lover’s story is all about growing and forgiveness. It also inspires hope because with all the time that has past it seems Ben and Jeremy never really gave up on the idea of a…”them.”
Ben and Jeremy are smokin’ hot together. I mean on fire…blazing heat. The passion these two ignite is through the roof even though it does take a while before it catches.
I definitely recommend this book.
