Accountant slash bartender Reg will show rock star Jeremy how to have fun...and possibly fall in love.
Hollywood royalty Jeremy Jameson has lived a sheltered life with music as his sole focus and only friend. Before embarking on yet another international concert tour, he wanders into a bar in what he considers the middle-of-nowhere and meets a man who wins him over with his friendly smile and easy-going nature. Accountant slash bartender slash adventure-seeker Reg Moore has fun talking and drinking with The Jeremy Jameson and can't say no when the supposedly straight rock star makes him a once in a lifetime offer: keep him company on his tour by playing the part of his boyfriend.
Listening to music, traveling the world, and jumping off cliffs is fun. Falling in love is even better. But to stay with Jeremy after the stage lights dim, Reg will need to help him realize there's nothing pretend about their relationship.
With the worn-to-hell baseball cap pulled low over his face, Jeremy Jameson walked into the bar. At least he assumed it was a bar, based on the lopsided sign out front that simply said "Bar" in peeling red paint and the stench of beer and cigarette smoke that permeated the air. The interior space wasn't any cleaner or hipper than the parking lot.
Jeremy tried to remember the last time he had been in a club or bar or restaurant that wasn't sleek with carefully positioned lighting and well-maintained fixtures. Never. The answer to that question was never. Even musicians who started on the bottom and worked their way up probably wouldn't have come to a dive like this; it was too small, too out of the way, and it didn't have a stage or any room to set up equipment.
Internally lecturing himself for thinking about work…
I absolutely loved this amazing story! ...I loved seeing their relationship develop slowly while they really got to know each other. ...Reg really understood Jeremy and was able to truly support him so he could focus on his music. Reg was extremely patient and helped Jeremy mature in his behavior. The build up to their first hot sex scene together was so intense and emotional. I liked the way we saw time pass by so the strengthening of their relationship made sense. Throw in a little mystery about somebody leaking information to the press, and I had a story that I couldn't put down. My favorite thing about books by this author is that he spends the time to fully develop both the characters and the relationship. If you haven't read the author's work before, this is a great starting point, since it's not part of a series.
And so begins the adventure of Jeremy and Reg and it is absolutely lovely. ...His initial meeting with Reg, well, it just highlights how being The Jeremy Jameson might just be a pretty tough way to live. What Reg does, through the glamour and otherwise that is the life of a rock star, is treat Jeremy like a "buddy, an equal, a regular guy." And this pampered, lonely rock star loves it. ... Let's put it out there – Jeremy of the purple hair is a wonderful thing. Purple hair gets me every time. But Reg? I loved him. He's patient, kind and adventurous but he is also loyal and sweet....But mostly, I just loved the maybe too perfect coming together of Jeremy and Reg.
A delightful blend of charming story and sexy characters.
There are some very funny moments in this book...fleshlights...and the way that Reg just keeps pushing and waiting for that ah-ha moment cracked me up. There are also some very sensual moments and as always with this author they are beautifully written.....This is a perfect lazy day read when you want something that will interest you but not overwhelm you with angst.
