He could work miracles with His Hands

Lance Bartner loved working with his hands, made his living refinishing furniture. Nights out were for fun with friends and the occasional hook-up. Though the L word had never been spoken, he would have enjoyed a relationship had the right man crossed his path. But who would want a laborer like Lance? He wasn't college educated, didn't live in a fancy loft condo, didn't drive a Lexus, and didn't even
own a suit.

Forrest Dentren, was an architect and city planner who had become a local name when his design for the Monroe City Center was chosen as one of the top three contenders. Well educated, extremely well built, and as both men and women put it, just plain hot. Some said he was married to his job, others said he was too picky, many said he didn't want to share the spotlight.

One hot, uninhibited sex-filled night

When Forrest broke his routine and went clubbing on a weeknight, he spotted Lance. The attraction was immediate from both sides of the dance floor. They both felt it. A few drinks later, still feeling it, they left for Lance's apartment.

It was never supposed to turn into anything more than one hot fuck

Two people from opposite ends of the world, no roadmap, not directions, no ideas how to make it work.

Architect Of Love is a hot and steamy, gay romance novel with no cliffhangers. It is the second book in The Fated Soulmates series and can be read as a standalone.


Forrest is an architect, rich, hot, and a local celebrity. He is also well educated... pretty much what a perfect person might be.

Lance is a handy man of sorts. He refinishes furniture, he has little education, he is hot though! But he's pretty much the opposite of Forrest.

I related with Lance a lot because I've felt a lack of self worth before. Thinking you can't possibly be good enough for the Forrests of the world; that a one night stand is as far as anything could come of with a person of wealth and social standing.

Forrest isn't a bad guy and Lance absolutely was struggling with his own perceptions of himself in this. My heart was sad when they broke apart... but don't panic, great loves are fought over!

This novella really tells the story of two men who fall in love with each other. We see that before Lance finds out how wealthy Forrest is. Getting that hardcore love back is what the journey is all about.

This is a very enjoyable read and I'm looking forward to other books in this series.

  1. I have so many books in my TBR that it's difficult to narrow it down. I typically read by challenge requirements too so I'll be finishing up my 2016 challenges. I do have quite a few holiday stories I hope to be reading though!
