Synopsis: Television producer Charlie Trager spends his days working with beautiful women on a daytime talk show. But underneath his cool façade, there’s a hollow spot in his heart, waiting for the right man to ease his loneliness. Then he meets the show’s next guest, a handsome young politician with a bad case of nerves—and a secret that could turn both their lives upside down.

Bookish Things: The cover isn’t catchy enough, especially because the writing is awesome. I wish this book and the others in the Trager Family Secrets series had catchier covers.
Where to buy: Amazon on kindle for $0.81.
Absolutely nothing explicit or in-your-face in terms of sex, this is a very soft opening to the romance, which will build into an amazing series.
I read book 3 first, so the events in this part are not new, but I got more information about the supporting characters, particularly Xander and Freddie. Both of which I adored already from their parts in book 3, and it helped to see them in this opening short story. It made the whole thing more realistic.
ETA: This book has a few themes that might bother some readers: cheating and children are part of the existing family.
If you want to try a glorious, sweet and sexy m/m romance try Laurie’s Trager Family Secrets series, you won’t be disappointed.
