Angus Lowe feels like he s just stepped onto the set of “Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous.” He s checking out a luxurious boutique hotel and winery, lured by the possibility of landscaping the gardens. And he s crazy mad about the woman giving him the tour.

Problem is, Lily Hemington is way out of his league. Not only does she “live” the lifestyle of the rich and famous, she is also crazy mad about the owner of the hotel, Blake Seymour.

Issues get cloudier or could that be steamier? when Angus meets Blake. It s clear Blake has deep feelings for Lily, but it s also obvious he can t take his eyes off Angus. While Angus doesn t find this at all unpleasant, he s painfully aware Lily and Blake are perfect for each other, and that he doesn t belong in their perfect world.

Now it s up to Lily and Blake to convince Angus the only world that counts is the one they all create together.

Warning: This book should be enjoyed with a bottle of chilled white wine. You ll need it to cool down when the heat among these three characters burns out of control

I picked this novella up because it was free and wanted something short and sexy to read. Sadly, I was let down.
While I loved the concept, two men and one woman. Sort of admiration from afar turned into more. It didn’t end up working for me.
Angus, the landscaper, is at a wine tasting because Lily, who recently hired him, convinced him to go. The first part of the story drags on and I’m not entirely sure where it was supposed to lead to, but it didn’t work for me. It seemed like Angus was there alone until POOF Lily was there. However, for me, in the end he was the most likable character.
Lily can’t be with Angus even after they share an amazing kiss because she feels attached to Blake, a friend whom she’s secretly loved for years. At one point she admits to having slept with other people while in lust for Blake, but all she can think about is Blake, yet somehow nothing has ever come of their relationship…. until Angus.
Then there is Blake, who earned his money from some software and bought a hotel to fix up and use as an investment. This is how the story comes together. Lily is bringing Angus to meet Blake since he did such a good job on her yard. Oops, there is some kissing and naughty action along the way so when they arrive Lily is still flushed from it, however, that is not what catches Blake’s eye. It is the sexy man meat, Angus.
All in all, it wasn’t a horrible story. I think it was silly to have the insta love scene and declarations. The sex scene was eh, okay for me. It lacked emotion and feelings for me (even with the whole ‘I love you because you banged me’ bit)
Editing seriously lacked as there is numerous misspelled words.
However, it was free, it was short, so that helped.
