I have to say based off the cover of this book, I wasn’t expecting much. I don’t think the cover does this book justice at all. It was sexy, it was romantic, it even had a bit of angst. It was, however, not about steak. Sure, Rex sells steak but the book isn’t about that. It’s about the unexpected situation that occurs between Rex and J and what they do about the intense heat that engulfs them both every time they barely touch.
1/4 star reduction for the cover that isn’t nearly as good as the book. 1/4 star reduction for lacking flow at times.
“So…um…you’re going to do some sightseeing tomorrow?” Jordan asked.
“I am. I haven’t been to this area since I was a kid, and it’s so beautiful this time of year.”
Jordan nodded. He’d picked up a pen and was rubbing the end of it over his full bottom lip. Rex wanted to replace it with his tongue. Jordan put the pen down and flipped through papers in a folder. When he licked the tip of his finger to help him unstick a few pages, Rex had to cover a groan by turning it into a cough.
Jordan glanced at him quickly before closing the file and slipping it into a drawer. “If there’s anything in particular you’d like to do, I could help you find the best—”
“I’d like to kiss you.” Rex hadn’t meant to be so bold, but he’d never been particularly good at restraining himself. His bluntness had served him well in business and almost as well in his attempts to pick up men.
Jordan made a strangled noise and looked up. “Mr. Aiken, I’m not sure that would…um…”
He looked terrified. Rex realized he was doing the same thing to Jordan that Lucy had done to him—putting him in a position where he could easily believe saying no would affect his job.
“I’m sorry. That was out of line. You did me a favor, and you deserve more respect from me.”
Jordan’s cheeks were now bright red. “I’m not offended, sir. I’m just surprised.”
