From the Publisher:
Steve Campbell used to be a player, until a mid-life crisis opened his eyes to his long-repressed love for Connor, his soon-to-be-married best friend and business partner. Coming out at thirty-eight means learning how to date all over again, and this time, Steve’s not willing to settle for empty one-night stands. He wants the real thing.
Gil Alvarez has never had it easy, struggling through childhood and rejected by his family for a body that didn’t match who he was inside. A skilled driver and mechanic, he’s working hard to make his auto shop a success. The last thing he needs is a rich white guy in a candy-apple-red Ferrari tempting him, but Steve’s ready smile and easygoing manner prove irresistible.
One brief, intimate encounter leaves them both hungry for more. Gil’s not ashamed of who he is, but he’s terrified that Steve will reject him—or worse—when he discovers what Gil can’t find the courage to tell him.
This title is part of the Irresistible Attraction universe.
Flawless by Cat Grant is the forth title in her Irresistible Attraction series. This book revisits Steve, best friend and business partner to Connor from Priceless and Fearless and main character from Doubtless, and Gil, who was first mentioned as Gil’s date to Connor and Wes’ wedding in Fearless. Did you follow all that? After recently coming to terms with his attraction to men, Steve is still looking for his Happily Ever After. He meets a potential applicant for the position in the form of Gil, but with secrets from Gil’s past, a Steve’s inability to accept Gil as is, ruin what they are building?
As with Fearless this book does not end with a neatly wrapped little bow as many Romances do. It does, however, end with more optimism than did Doubtless. Connor and Gil are an interesting couple. While I didn’t feel any particular pull to these characters, I do applaud Grant’s introduction of Trans character into the universe.
