Businessman Jamie MacPherson is unlucky
in love. Depressed over the loss of his last lover, he
secretly fears he is unattractive and has nothing to offer a
new lover. Well, nothing but money. If money can't buy
love, and Jamie has learned the hard way that it can't, it
can buy a little pleasure.
When Ryan Van Alstyn agreed to help a
out a fellow waiter by taking on an extra table, he didn't
expect to meet someone like Jamie. Someone who can tempt
him in ways no other man has since the love of his life died
two years ago. Although he feels as if he's being
unfaithful, Ryan is incredibly attracted to Jamie.
Allowing himself to have a casual fling
is a giant step for Ryan, but when attraction burns this
hot, what other choice is there? Is a purely sexual
relationship enough for these two? Will Jamie and Ryan
overcome the emotional wreckage of past relationships and
find love together?
Both Ryan and Jamie have emotional
issues and insecurities that I found endearing and could
relate to. At times I wanted to hug Jamie and commiserate.
But he probably would have hated that, being a reticent
alpha male. I could see Jamie's attraction to Ryan who is
smart and witty with gorgeous good-looks. The intimacy
between Ryan and Jamie was very intense, urgent and erotic.
I loved it!
I have re-read Ms. Vaughan's Jumping the Fence
several times and when I saw that Crossing the Line
was next in the series, I had to have this book! Fans of
Jumping the Fence will love Crossing the Line.
