Synopsis

Finding his fiancé in bed with his brother was bad enough, finding out they’re getting married is the final blow.

Devan Smith needs to cool his anger. He needs to forget the lies and betrayals and work on resetting his life. When his boss orders him to scope out a remote hotel for a possible buyout, Devan’s only interested in getting the job done and getting out. What he’s not interested in is the guy with the piercings, bleached hair, and the smart, kissable mouth behind the reception desk.

Working the hotel reception is the only thing that’s stable in Jonty Bloom’s unstable life. His best friend has had a terrible accident, his ex refuses to move on, and his eight-year-old self is still waiting for his mother to collect him from school. Jonty needs his job. What he doesn’t need is the rude, arrogant, and hot as they come guy who’s rocked up demanding he be let into his room right now.

Thrown together by a freak accident, Devan and Jonty’s lives entwine, and neither wants to loosen the knot. Can the irrepressible Jonty be the reset Devan needs? Can Devan be the making of Jonty Bloom, or will secrets drive them apart?

First in the Unfinished Business series. All books are standalones.



Review


A bow to this author who managed to create a heartbreaking story without the feeling that it couldn’t be mended again. It was all breathtaking!

One thing is for sure Tay is Jonty’s best friend! Throughout the whole story, the friendship is there.
Jonty is alone and broken, you can feel it in every written line. His witty snarky humor hides his brokenness.

When haughty Devan enters the hotel where Jonty works Jonty can’t help but play a bit with Devan. Devan bites back.
Devan is on a holiday, not really, but he escaped home. He found his fiancé in bed with... his brother. He can’t face them anymore not after they planned to get married.
He’s angry, furious and when you can read between the lines you’ll understand he’s hurt, deeply.

He finds the hotel nice, but it needs an upgrade and some new employees because this guy Jonty annoys him so very much! Buying the owner out and make it a big 5-star hotel. That’s the plan.

“This futile, irritating attraction was starting to annoy him. He was even annoyed that he partly enjoyed it annoying him.”

After they are together in a death threatening experience... things start changing. Omg how things around them are changing, it was in a breathtaking way. Jonty shows Devan his life.

By the misty bits, Jonty reveals to Devan, he (and we) understand Jonty is full of secrets, secrets and hurt, every wave of hurt he smiles and talks away. Devan is in awe and in love.

An extended and beautifully written narrative. There is a lot of activity, fun ones and quite disturbing ones. There is a stalker to find, and horrible exes, stubborn family, painful pasts, bright-looking futures, joy and laughter, hope so much hope, wonderful friendships, dedicated friends, and worshipping lovers. What a ride, what a story. The author did a tremendous job.
From first sight, I understood Jonty was something special and precious.
His life is complicated and several heavy issues weighing on his shoulders. If the use of his mouth is an indication you can conclude it was a lot. He was exhaustedly overwhelming with words.
This is an exceptional story, while I loved every bit of it, I would also be satisfied with a bit less, it was a lot to take in. It was too large to read in one sit, I took every available free minute to read and read. After finishing I couldn’t let them go.
Highly recommended!

  8. How to Get Your Ex Wife or Husband Back Permanently No Matter Why He or She Left You”
    My husband left me for another woman and i wanted him back. I did everything within my reach to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so badly because of the love I had for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to my friend and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back , I had no choice than to try it. I messaged the spell caster called dr unity, and he assured me there was no problem and that everything will be okay before 11 hours. He cast the spell and surprisingly 11 hours later my husband called me. I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that had happened He wanted me to return to him. He also said he loved me so much. I was so happy and went to him that was how we started living together happily again.thanks to dr unity . if you are here and your Lover is turning you down, or your husband moved to another woman, do not cry anymore, contact Dr.Unity for help now..Here his contact, WhatsApp him: +2348055361568 {or} Email him at: Unityspelltemple@gmail.com ,his website:https://unityspells.blogspot.com .
