Despite multiple degrees and business success, in his heart Jeremy Strauss feels he’s never measured up. While he hasn’t lacked for men or women to share his bed, Jeremy has yet to find someone who sees beyond his muscles and perfect smile. Taking it slow with a lover isn’t how he operates, but something about the shy accountant he rescues in a snowstorm makes him want this time to be different. So what if Blake drops little comments here and there about Jeremy’s pretty face? Their relationship is perfect.
Or is it?
Lonely most of his life, Blake Myers is as careful with his heart as he is with a balance sheet. The last thing he expects is for a man like Jeremy to fall for him, and he can't help but wait for the bubble to burst on their relationship. When the stress of a professional crisis turns personal, Blake sees the perfect relationship he and Jeremy have built start to crumble. Caught in an ever-tightening web of lies, rather than wait for Jeremy to leave him, Blake breaks it off and vanishes.
Perfection is an illusion.
Jeremy doesn’t know which way to turn and for the first time in his life, he’s lost and uncertain. Believing he’s no longer the man Jeremy needs, Blake sinks deeper into despair. Both men struggle with secrets, lies, and hurtful memories until they are forced to look inside their hearts and learn the truth—that love is perfectly imperfect.
I love some complex men in a story.
Blake is a lonely guy until Jeremy walks into his life.
It's a complicated journey... two guys in love but both with huge personal issues. One of them has always been told he would never ever be enough in life, the other hurt and told he’d never be 'the one' for someone else, always playing the second violin. When they collide there is hope, only life isn't working with them.
Their relationship is slow and sweet. Communication isn't their best thing, on the other side they have great sex and can't get enough of each other.
When complications are taking up too much space in their relationship Blake does what he's good at...running away. Jeremy is devastated and can't believe this is happening.
"In my world full of nothings, you are my everything.”
This story has a lot of unprocessed feelings and love isn't always enough to heal the wounds.
Besides all their struggles, we also behold Jeremy's progress in business with his fitness center. Colleagues and family, bad firms and good business plans are playing a part in their wasting and emotional ride.
Finally the loose ends come together. The battle of Jeremy and Blake felt honest and their commitment real. Sometimes I was afraid they wouldn't end up together.
A fascinating story written in an enthralling way.
