My Rating: 5 of 5 stars

From the Publisher:

Mitchell Hill might be gay, but working for a business specializing in sexual products for men makes it hard for him…in more ways than one. When his new boss announces a contest to find an innovative product to launch nationally, Mitchell blurs the line between personal and professional by deciding to submit a lubricant he’d created for himself. One problem—he has to get the approval of his boss’s sexy assistant, a man he hasn’t been able to stop thinking about, in very carnal ways, since first seeing.
Kayden Wright has heard nothing but insane ideas about products until newcomer Mitchell walks into his office. He’s thrilled with the lube idea…and turned-on by the man before him. He always maintains a professional demeanor—he needs this job to deal with the mountain of medical bills piling at his door. But when Mitchell kisses him, he loses his steely control. Not easily willing to trust others, Kayden mistakes innocence for treachery and the two men start a roller-coaster relationship filled with lies, deceit…and smoldering sex.
A Romantica® gay erotic romance from Ellora’s Cave

My View

This story is the sequel to Straight Roommate, which I adored. I was hoping this book would not disappoint and was relieved it didn’t. The story takes place after Mitchell graduates college and gets a job. He works for a company that caters to gay men. It is through work that he meets Kayden. Kayden is the boss’s right hand man, and who is hated by everyone. This story was a typical setup in that the boss doesn’t allow employees to date. So predictably, when the boss is out of town Mitchell and Kayden hook up. What ensues is a wonderfully hysterical and heartfelt story filled with love, family, horrible coworkers, one sweet grandma, lots of lube and one heartless boss. This book will make you cry and laugh, but the best part is, it will keep you guessing until the very end. This is one book you don’t want to miss. If you want my advice after you read this, read it’s prequel ‘Straight Roommate’ both books are well worth it.
