LGBTQ Contemporary Romance
For my first Robin Covington book, I really enjoyed this one. Oliver and Gareth had a one night stand but Oliver was too focused on his career and proving his father wrong to make time for a relationship. But neither man has forgotten that one night and when they meet again Oliver is determined to have Gareth. I liked both men, in particular Gareth who I really sympathized with. He’s had a rough upbringing and he’s funneled it into his art, but he hates the attention that comes from being comic book artist G. For my preferences, Oliver was a bit too cocky and arrogant, but he grew on me as the story went on.

Oliver Burns knew sneaking out on the most delicious one-night-stand he ever had would come back and bite him in the ass. Caught up in his own swagger when he was named to the “30 under 30” list, he publicly bragged that his next goal was to sign the reclusive artist “G” to his talent roster at his comic publishing company and now he’s got to make it happen.
So, Oliver can only laugh when he realizes that the guy he pulled a post-sex runner on a couple of years earlier is Gareth Rain, also known as “G” – creator of the First Nations graphic novel juggernaut, Ghost Warriors – and the one man he always regretted leaving behind. But Oliver didn’t get to the top by giving up, so now he’s laser focused on two things: getting Gareth on his team and back in his bed.
