It's not often I find a new author that I immediately fan/follow, but I knew within 10 pages that I was going to be slavishly loyal to Dominique Frost. This is her only publication to date, alas, but hopefully there will be more.
Jared is a high-powered CEO who does nothing but work. He's a total grump (aka asshole) and his domineering secretary schedules a massage to chill him out before he scares away all their clients. The masseur is Kyle, a cute young twink. Jared doesn't want to be there and tries to run all over Kyle but Kyle handles him like a pro and soon has Jared a puddle of relaxed goo. Jared is determine it won't happen again, but it does. Kyle can always put him in his place. Needless to say, since this is a romance, the two eventually become a couple.
This is is a short novella (79 pages) but a fully satisfying story, great for a quick read with lots of humor and UST.
So why did I immediately fan the author? She weaves a solid, delightful, super fun character and prose voice in this story. I don't typically like "jerk" characters but Jared grabbed my interest from page one because the writing is FUNNY and sly. Yes, he is a jerk at the start but in the way the Sherlock or House are jerks--fascinating and funny and genuine. I loved the story all the way through.
Please write more, Ms. Frost!
