I thought it would be really cliched, but the MCs spent time getting to know each other and we got to know feelings on both sides. For a short book, this was really good.
Heat Level: 3 flames out of 5 Rating: 5 stars out of 5 I think the Dreamspun Desires by Dreamspinner Press is one of my favorite series. These are shorter books full of hot gay men trying to or not trying to find love. The stories are always fun, imaginative, and sexy as hello. In this latest book by M J O'Shea we find ourselves behind the scenes of Hollywood public relations. Plot- Kerry works for one of the best PR firms representing entertainment A listers. Jericho Knox is the sexy star that is about to get his first big role playing a detective in a popular TV series. Just as his career is coming together, a photo of him in a very compromising position goes viral. Trying to put a positive spin on the picture, Kerry comes up with the idea of a fake secret fiancé that will bring Jericho out of the closet. What Kerry didn’t bargain for was being the secret fiancé. As they try to fool the press and the public of their loving relationship, both Kerry and Jericho become more than roommates. The chemistry in this book is brighter than any star. The pacing is pretty fast with some humorous parts.

Kerry Pickering has a job to do and that job is to keep Jericho Knox in the news. Jericho certainly has no problem with his partying and public escapades. But Jericho wants a role that may require him to clean up his image. And that is where the problems lie. It seems Jericho has a secret, a secret that is revealed in a less than favorable way. Now Kerry and his team have to put a positive spin on it. The team wants to say Jericho is in a secret, committed relationship but they need someone reliable. To keep tight control, the team picks Kerry to be the stand in. Unfortunately, Kerry finds himself falling for Jericho. Kerry is such a sweet innocent boy and, through his job, winds up having to spend a lot of time with Jericho. Jericho started out to be rather unlikeable. Your heart will go out to Kerry as he tries to make the best of things. Jericho does realize that he is not treating Kerry as he should and tries to make amends. Then, we start to see the real Jericho. M.J. O’Shea does an amazing job of bringing these two to life amidst the glamorous world of show biz and the game called publicity. Hop on the roller coaster with Kerry and watch as his life changes completely.
M.J. O'Shea you've done it yet again!! The whole concept of "Jericho and Kerry" may have sounded a bit lite in the loafers but dang, M.J. writes her stories like an old aged whiskey. Slow, burning and smooth. She has yet to disappoint me. Thank you M.J. O'Shea
