✱✱Book Review✱✱ André by Jayce Ellis


André: A Gay Workplace Romance

High Rise

by Jayce Ellis 


Jayce Ellis's sexy, contemporary High Rise series features the bustle of DC and the hustle of love.

After a week filled with nonstop work, André Ellison heads to the club to blow off some steam. One night off is the perfect distraction from the project that’s about to make his career—or tank it completely. A few drinks in and he leaves with a smoking-hot stranger for some scorching, burn-the-sheets-up sex.

Marcus Thompson is going places, so he can’t think of a bigger waste of time than being put on loan to a two-bit firm to prepare some small-time report. The last thing he wants—or needs—is his impeccably dressed, hot-as-hell one-night stand as his boss.

As they work side by side, their attraction grows to a fever pitch, but there will be no kissing, no touching and absolutely no sex until the project is over—if they can wait that long.

Momma Says: 3 stars⭐⭐⭐

André is a relatively low angst, entertaining office romance - André and Marcus have no idea they'll be working together when they meet. Of course, the workplace dynamic of André being Marcus' boss spices things up a bit, and it adds a little something to the tension between these two. They definitely have good chemistry, and they're both likable characters. All in all, I did like the story even though there were a couple of things I wanted some type of closure for. But at the end of the day, this is a romance and it's a pretty good one, so I guess the side stuff is just that. The book is well written, and the characters are engaging, and I do enjoy the lower angst level, especially in this crazy world. I was also happy to see some diversity in the genre. We don't get nearly enough of that. This one may not have been exactly what I wanted on some things, but it was certainly worth the read and I'll be interested to see what the author does next.
