Alastair needs help overcoming issues with touch and physical intimacy in order to clinch a business deal with some demonstrative Italians who prefer hugging to handshakes.
Martin, his assistant, has the perfect solution. His mother runs cuddle workshops, which could help Alastair overcome his fears–if he’s brave enough to try. Alastair is nervous not only about the workshop, but also because he will be sharing a room with Martin, who’s starred in his fantasies more often than an assistant should.
Alastair reluctantly decides to give it a try, so they head to a commune in Wales where Martin grew up. The weekend at the commune with Martin proves to be transformative in more ways than one.
Awww, this book. So fun. It’s not big but it’s got all the feelz you need. Besides, don’t we all need to go to a hippie commune to overcome our fear of touch and then sex our hot assistant? Mebe that’s my dream. Huh. Whatever, we should give it a try at least once in our life. Bucketlist 🙂 Alistair got to do that with Martin, his assistant, so Alistair could handle the Italian meeting for his daddy’s company~ the Italians are huggers, and those kisses on the cheeks? Lovely but scary if you aren’t cool with the personal space bubble being assailed, just like Alistair.
And, oh so good, these guys aren’t the butch posturing types, I don’t mind me some masc but I needs a break. Thank you Jeebers, they’re ordinary guys doing ordinary things with a dash of spice, you have to have spice so it isn’t boring, and that meant I was ensnared. Okay, so ensnared is dramastic but I was ensnared in a good way, okay? Not like a hunter’s crapola trap, but a love trap.
To be real, I know how hard it is to let people into your space, give me room FFS, give me room! and the writer covered that. So I glommed on to Alistair’s character and cheered Martin’s, that smart cookie, and I was clapping with secret parts of me when they explored closeness together. Personal winning!
Cute. Little bit spicy. Sweet. Realz Feelz. Good writing. *Skips off to look for more Jay Northcote.*
