Luck, happenstance, whatever you call it… Love finds a way.
Clark James works hard. And though he’s not wealthy and he sometimes struggles to pay the bills, he is happy. Though many see being gay as a burden, Clark knows it’s who he is and moves on. He has dreams to set in motion. When he helps an elderly woman who fainted in the street, Tae Won Kim walks into Clark’s life.
When Tae Won Kim finds out about the man who saved his mother, Tae knows he must reward him. But the infuriating Clark James refuses to take anything from him. The more he pushes, the more he sees Clark as a man he could really bring into his life. Clark is kind, sexy, loving but hellbent on keeping Tae at arm’s length.
Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of spanking.
When I read the blurb of this book I was excited to read it. It sounded so good. However the book didn’t live up to how good I hoped it was. The premise of the story has major potential. I loved how Clark goes and helps a stranger when so many people didn’t and wouldn’t. Plus he did it truly expecting nothing in return. That selflessness was an admirable trait I liked about Clark. However there were aspects of the story that just didn’t make sense or felt forced and insincere. I didn’t understand why Clark kept pushing Tae Won away after he admitted to being attracted to Tae Won. Tae Won was overbearing in that awkward kind of creepy way. I think it was supposed to come off as the “Alpha sexy dominating” but it really wasn’t. He mellowed out towards the end, but I still had the lingering weird vibes from before. Once Tae Won and Clark got together and decided to give a relationship a go, it was non stop sex scenes and almost no plot progression. There’s nothing wrong with hot sex in the book. But it was one after another and barely a page between them. And some of the things in the sex scenes were so over the top it felt weird. Such as Tae Won ripping all of clothes off, actually physically ripping and tearing them. It got to the point I skipped through the last handful because I wanted to see more progress between Clark and Tae Won and their feelings. But it sadly just wasn’t there. The happy ending felt very forced and I didn’t believe they loved each other as much as they said.
