Blake Hudson has everything. The perfect job, a penthouse apartment, and killer abs. But when he suffers a heart attack at 39, he realizes something is missing from his life and wonders if being career-oriented was just another way of saying workaholic.
When his doctor suggests he take time off from work, Blake puts it off. He’s got too much work as a new partner in New York City’s hottest advertising agency and he’s about to land a multi-million dollar account. But his employer pulls rank and surprises him with the keys to his own house in Fort Lauderdale, the Venice of America.
With Ricky Sanchez, a smoldering Latin hunk, Blake discovers there truly is more to life than working 24/7 and making money. There are places to visit, things to do, and steamy sex to be had anywhere their imagination will let them. But all vacations must come to an end. What will Blake choose when the agency calls him back to babysit his coveted multi-million dollar account?
New York exec, Blake Hudson, has it all until the pesky heart attack. That might stop anyone, cause them to slow down a bit, but not Blake. He’s a hard one, thinking the world may stop if he does. Uptight wouldn’t be a stretch in describing him. He has to be carted off for a vacation in Miami. Luckily for him, the grow ‘em sexy down in the Sunshine State.
His first glance at the masseuse, Ricky, and Blake wants. The attraction is so mutual. I giggled all through the first interaction between Blake and Ricky. When they come together, the physicality has Blake showing real vulnerability for the first time. Mr. Miles wrote that scene especially well and I enjoyed his flow. He did a great job in bringing us into Blake’s world and showing us why he needed saving. And why Ricky was the one to do the saving. The younger masseuse is exactly what Blake needed to show him the important things in life aren’t work and prestige, but love and companionship.I thoroughly enjoyed the delicious love scenes. This was my first read from Mr. Miles, and I can’t wait to read more.
