Nicolas has worked with Pierce almost his whole life, and they’ve come far together, currently Co-CEOs of one of the largest companies in the United States. As they keep on heading toward bigger and better dreams, only one fear casts a shadow over Nicolas: Pierce falling in love.
Nicolas tells himself it’s for the company, for their shared goals and dreams. He can’t let Pierce get sidetracked, so he does his best to make sure it never happens—including keeping all the cute interns well away. Then Lynn shows up, attractive, eager, practically perfect.
But it’s not Pierce that Nicolas should be worrying about this time.
This book just didn’t hold my interest I’m sorry to say.
I found the characters to be very immature and childish. The dialogue was totally inappropriate for a work setting between Nicholas and Lynn and then later with Pierce too.
Pierce came across immature and childish in their dialogue. He goes after anyone that flirts with him.
I found Nicolas to be a very jealous person and very annoying. Lynn on the other hand was very giddy but very smart. Lynn liked both Nicholas and Pierce so he offers up a menage.
The book did have a nice ending. I just didn’t feel any connection to the story. I’m sure other people will and will enjoy it.
Lynn really didn’t work for me as a third in this relationship. He is 18. Fresh out of high school. I might have believed in an intern had he been fresh out of an Ivy League college and able to contribute more fully to the company and the relationship. I struggled to see what a teenager was genuinely offering two powerful CEOs appart from a beautfiful face.
I felt this story lacked depth and development. The vaguely futuristic setting was interesting, but only ever hinted at. The relationships remained mostly sexual because they weren’t ever developed into more. The sex was hot but lacking any emotional resonance.
I feel like this book had promise it didn’t quite deliver on. I’d love to see some of the elements in this book polished and re-drafted until I’m able to fully invest in these three characters.
