When Theodore Davenport decides to switch his mundane job for a career, he walks into Holden House Publishing with enthusiasm and determination to succeed. As he settles into his new role, makes new friends, and dreams of making it to the top, everything is going to plan.
Until he meets James Holden, CEO of Holden House.
James Holden hasn’t been able to stop thinking about his encounter with the timid man he met in a club bathroom last week, and when he discovers the one haunting his dreams is an employee, he can’t seem to stop himself from pursuing him.
Just a little fun – that’s what James tells himself. He can’t afford to care for someone who can never reciprocate, not once they find out who he really is. James believes nobody deserves the burden of being attached to him. He’s a complicated man. Damaged. Difficult. Demanding.
Is Theodore strong enough to confront James’ demons? More importantly, is James?
This was an amazing book which deals with some really heavy subjects, but the way they are written is sensitive and brilliantly done.
Nicola Haken is a great writer, she brings depth and emotion to her characters giving them lots of facets and depth you can really get you teeth into. You follow her plots like a movie reel playing out in your mind, this book is believable, realistic, and well written.
Broken maybe a hard to read for some, its real, gritty, heartfelt, raw and painful but there is also such a great romance running through the plot, it ticks all the boxes for me.
This is another wonderful m/m romance from Nicola.
