A Fabric Hearts Story

Two years after his life fell apart, Will Dawson moved to Florida to start over. His job in the tech department of Idyll Fling, a gay porn studio, is ideal for him. When his boss forces him to take on a new hire, the last person he expects is Dallas Greene—the man who cost him his job and his boyfriend back in Connecticut. He doesn’t know what’s on Dallas’s agenda, but he won’t be blindsided by a wolf masquerading as a runway model. Not again.

Dallas might have thrown himself on his brother’s mercy, but his skills are needed at Idyll Fling. Working with Will is a bonus, since Dallas has never forgotten the man. A good working relationship is only the beginning of what Dallas wants with Will.

But Dallas doesn’t realize how deep Will’s distrust runs, and Will doesn’t know that the man he’s torn between loving and hating is the boss’s brother. When all truths are revealed, how can a relationship built on lies still stand?

My View:

While this is the 2nd in a series, I hadn’t read the first one (although I totally will now) and I may have lost a little character development, it was minor.

This was just a great example of a contemporary romance, there was great character development, back stories and friends and family without it just becoming a mass of exposition.

On one hand it’s classic misinformation and misunderstanding on both sides, Will believing some terrible things about Dallas, and Dallas not being able to express to Will how things happened – including his familial relationship with the owner of the company they both work for. As readers we know what’s going on partially, but it’s not until Dallas and Will finally confront their issues that we see the extent of what has happened.

The build up to Dallas and Will becoming lovers is slow, and full of UST, as they both really liked the other when they met 2 years ago. As a rule I dislike the big blow up miscommunication thing, but not only was it really well done here, it was totally necessary – I felt palpable tension at times.

Very enjoyable.
