Reviewed by Cassie



As the new guy at Clark Sterling and Associates, Thomas Harrigan can’t help being intimidated by his boss.  Or attracted to him.  He tries to keep both emotions under wraps, at least until he goes to get the man for a meeting and finds him asleep in front of his computer—which is playing gay porn!

Clark is very attracted to Thomas, but a bad experience with sleeping with a colleague in the past has made him wary.  He finally decides to throw caution to the wind and everything seems wonderful.  Will Thomas be the man he’s been looking for, or another mistake?

Most Likely to Succeed is a hot story of betrayal and misunderstandings.  Watching strong, guarded, intimidating Clark lower his guard and fall for Thomas was enjoyable.  Things between them happened fast (maybe too much so), but the scenes between Clark and Thomas were very hot.  The misunderstanding that tore them apart could have been fixed pretty easily, but Shawn Lane gave enough background on Clark’s previous betrayal to make the lack of discussion more believable.  Fans of breakup/makeup stories and boss/employee stories will be sure to enjoy Most Likely to Succeed.
