My thoughts: I give it❣❣❣ . I really loved Jacob and Simon’s relationship. It was clear from the start that this was no casual hookup for either one and Jacob’s actions caused hurt for both parties. They have angry, petty arguments and intense I-shouldn’t-but-I-want-you-anyway sex but despite the deceit and the lies they do still care about one another. It’s really quite good.
The ending was just perfect for this story, hopeful and kinda happy but not promising anything definite for the future – leaving the rest to the reader’s imagination. The whole book was tight, well-written and exciting. I recommend it!
Just another day at the office.
For some people that means spreadsheets, and for others it’s stitching endless hems. For Jacob Archer a day at the office is stealing proprietary information from a bioengineering firm for a paranoid software billionaire. He’s a liar and a thief, parlaying a glib tongue and a facile conscience into a lucrative career. He just has one rule—never get involved with a mark.
Well, had one rule. To be fair, though, Simon Ramsey is dark, dangerous, and has shoulders like a Greek statue. Besides, it’s not as though Jacob’s even really stealing from Simon… just his boss and his brother-in-law. Simon didn’t buy that excuse either after he caught Jacob breaking into the company’s computer network.
That would have been that—one messy breakup, one ticket to Bali booked—but it turns out that the stolen information is worth more than Jacob thought. With his life—and his ribs—threatened, Jacob needs Simon to help him out. Or maybe he just needs Simon.
