Adam Kingston expects to inherit his father’s multinational conglomerate. When he finds out half of it went to Nate Thomas—an annoying man whose dreams for Kingston Corp.’s future clash with Adam’s need to stave off financial disaster—Adam is furious. He’s willing to do whatever it takes to wrest control of Kingston Corp. from Nate.
Nate may be soft-spoken, but he refuses to be swayed by Adam’s arrogant demands. When Nate accidentally drops a pair of his lacy panties in front of Adam, there’s no mistaking Adam’s interest. Nate hadn’t realized Adam was bisexual, but now that his secret is out, Nate is willing to use Adam’s lust against him if it means protecting the welfare of the company he loves.
For Adam and Nate, hatred and desire are closely linked. Their inability to compromise threatens the company and could expose their tightly held secrets. But as they work together to develop a plan to save Kingston Corp., they begin to realize there might be more to their relationship than anger and lust.
Violet (the Fitting In series) gives readers a steamy, slightly kinky contemporary romance at the intersection of hate and lust. Self-centered, closeted bisexual Adam Kingston trained himself to become a ruthless businessman in anticipation of inheriting his father's massive company. But his father's will gives half the company to prot g Nate, a do-gooder hippie with a penchant for lacy panties. The two men weaponize their mutual disdain with threats about exposing shared secrets after Adam glimpses Nate's lingerie and Nate notices Adam's attraction to him. As they spar inflexibly over their hazy plans to save the corporation from financial ruin, they work out frustrations in hate-fueled and increasingly intimate sexual encounters. Adam's uneven and underdeveloped anxiety attacks cloud their growing attachment, but his picture-perfect ex-girlfriend turned confidante a literal duchess who serves as his superego persuades him to allow the smallest of compromises. Violet glides from sex scene to sex scene, allowing the business problems to fade to the background. Fans of fluffy gay erotica will enjoy the sexual exploration, but others will wish for a bit more substance and growth outside the bedroom.
