Overview

Hedge fund trader Ricky Santeramo has it all: money, looks, and fellow trader Jonathan Hogenboom. The two couldn't be more different: Jon is from old money, while Ricky clawed his way out of blue-collar New Jersey. Jon hedges his positions; Ricky goes for broke. Jon likes opera and the Yankees; Ricky prefers clubbing. Jon drinks wine with dinner; Ricky throws back a beer. Jon wants monogamy... but Ricky likes variety.

Bankrupt airlines are facing strikes, the housing market is starting to crumble, and Jon can't wait any longer for Ricky to commit. One last night alone and one last risky trade make Jon say, "Enough." Then Jon's old friend Davis comes to New York City, ready for baseball and forever. The whole world is chaos, but there are fortunes to be made-or lost-and hearts to be broken-or won.

Faced with losing it all, Ricky must make the savviest trades of his life and pray for a rare event. His portfolio and Jon's love are on the line.

The Rare Event by P.D. Singer is filled with enticing drama, woven weaves, hot passion and a fuel for success unlike any other book I¿ve read. This was my first gay romance and based off of what I have read in Singer¿s book, it won¿t be my last. The author managed to capture my attention with this intriguing storyline and kept it there right on to the end.While I questioned how much I¿d be into the story in the beginning, I soon found that despite all the technical terms for hedge funds, I was enraptured by what was unfolding before me. Ricky, Jon and Davis provided insight that many books miss now days and give the reader a true story on just how hard capturing love can sometimes be.While my heart eventually broke, (Yes, I was rooting for the underdog) The Rare Event leaves readers with a warm heart and the right happily ever after. I would definitely recommend this book, while it¿s a little bit longer than most, to anyone looking to experience a change in the typical books on the market and a love story that proves to be classic.Synopsis: Hedge fund trader Ricky Santeramo has it all: money, looks, and fellow trader Jonathan Hogenboom.
