Blurb: Josh has a plan: get through uni with a good degree and no debts. Focused on his goals, he’s working as an escort to pay his way. He enjoys the no-strings sex and doesn’t have the time or inclination for a relationship. Falling in love definitely isn’t part of the deal—especially not with a client.
When Rupert meets Josh in a bar, he’s smitten on sight. He’s never paid for sex before, but when Josh propositions him, he can’t resist. He should have known one night would never be enough. Luckily for him, he has an inheritance to support his addiction to Josh, because his job in IT wouldn’t cover the cost.
With each appointment the lines get increasingly blurred. Something is developing between them that feels more like a relationship than a business transaction, but they come from different worlds and to go from client-and-escort to lovers seems impossible. If they want a future together, Josh and Rupert have a lot to overcome.
Review: First off, this audiobook was not long enough! Listening to Mark Steadman tell this story was goose bump amazing. Josh and Rupert had such great chemistry and Mark Steadman brought that up to flaming hot.
Like a Lover is my first book by Jay Northcote, and looking at his backlist, I am wondering, now, what rock I was living under. But, I’ve remedied that situation and now own every one of his books that’s out in audio format, and I will work on the ebooks as I can afford them.
I love good mysteries, detective stories, and coming out stories, but sometimes I just want to listen to a story about two men who have amazing chemistry and a great romance. This is it, the whole package.
So, grab a glass of wine, find your quiet place, and just enjoy a great story. It’s worth it!
