Most Likely to Succeed by Shawn Lane

Thomas Harrigan can't help but admire his sexy, single and openly gay boss, Clark Sterling. He never expects the gorgeous lawyer to be interested in him. But when Clark makes his interest shockingly clear, Thomas find himself involved in a passionate affair with the man he never dreamed he’d have a chance with.

Burned before by an office romance gone wrong, Clark knows he should keep his relationship with Thomas on a strictly business level. But there’s something disarmingly genuine about Thomas, and Clark can’t seem to resist.

The more time Thomas spends in Clark’s company and bed, the more he knows he is falling in love with his handsome boss. But when Thomas’s resume finds its way to a rival firm, owned by the very man who hurt Clark before, Clark is livid and cuts Thomas out of his life, and his firm.

Left unemployed and reeling, Thomas struggles to put the pieces of his life back together without the man who has captured his heart.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

This is a really enjoyable read. It is thoughtful, sexy, romantic, and has a decent plot. In fact, the only thing that might have been better would have been a longer buildup – but actually they deal with that issue very well later on...

Whereas many books have friends who ensure things go to plan, sadly and unintentionally, this is rather the opposite, although in the end it all works out. If you want a short, satisfying and feisty read – this will do the job very well.

4 Lusty Stars.

Shawn Lane delivered exactly what the blurb, genre, and length promised. I was just discussing the other day how I rate books by other books in their genre, like I wouldn't rate a romancy, lusty novella against an epic fantasy or a dark emotional piece.

Most Likely to Succeed delivered tension and chemistry, lust, angst via miscommunication and past wounds, romance and scorching hot eroticism, conflict, and a happily ever after, all within this shorter novella. With a fully fleshed-out beginning, middle, and ending, I won't say what I wished had been on the pages, because that would be like wishing the book was something other than it promised.

With steady pacing, not a ton of filler or fluff, Clark and Thomas were an enjoyable, entertaining couple to read. I would highly recommend this title and author to fans of MM romance, especially if they are looking for a lot of between-the-sheets action with an equal amount of storytelling.

Shawn Lane is a multi-published author of gay romances and believes love and passion know no boundaries. Happily Ever After is for everyone.

She lives in California and holds down a boring day job in a legal department of a giant corporation dreaming of the nights and weekends when she can create new stories.
