Malcolm Osborne is a classic rags-to-riches story, a foster child who wound up with the perfect family and more money than he knows what to do with. He's wealthy, beautiful, successful, and completely miserable. Then he hires a new worker for his office, a young, hardworking man with a sadness in his eyes that Malcolm aches to banish, hoping that in doing so he will be rid of his own loneliness as well.

This is a great listen. I really didn't know what to expect as I have not read any books by this author. But since Paul Morey is one of my favorite narrators, I took a chance. Glad I did. This was a wonderful story of a young man's sacrifice for his family when parents are killed and he is forced to bury his dreams in order to take care of his young brother and sister. The other MC is a great character who is unexpectedly wealthy after being raised in the foster system to two unrelated by blood brothers. The brother's dynamic is fantastic and funny as hell. But their love for each other comes through loud and clear. All these dynamics come together for a great romantic story. Worth a credit.

How did I miss listening to this sooner?
I don’t know why I haven’t read this sooner!
It was fantastic!
Cassidy is an amazing vocalist on the cusp of setting the music world on fire when his parents die and he’s left in charge of his younger siblings. He ends up getting one crap job after another – for years – and is only now working at an office job that seems to appreciate him.
Malcolm is a foster kid who struck it rich. Now he and his other foster siblings work together on various projects – including an entertainment enterprise.
At first there are some questions: Is he gay? Can I get in trouble fraternizing with a fellow employee? Are we too different? Etc.
Eventually coincidences collide and the two meet and then are forced to deal with these questions AND their attraction.
I loved Cassidy and his story. Up until the very end, his was a real and very authentic story of struggle and “doing the right thing”. There were a few instances about the ending that felt a little rushed or set up to keep the lovers apart, but they were small. (IE the coincidence of the band, the sudden change of heart, his unwillingness to see his siblings as adults…)
Malcolm’s story was more fantasy than anything else. I would have liked it a bit better if his story held some more realism in it… but again, a minor complaint.
I am looking forward to the upcoming sequels and frankly couldn’t put this book down once I started it!
Paul Morey is a favorite of mine and I loved his narration here as well. I still think his “Spanish accent” sounds a bit too much like his Russian accent, but it still gives the story that exotic flavor and helps to differentiate the characters so well.
All in all I give both the book and the narration 4.5 of 5 stars
