Product Description

Product Description

Kipp Llewellyn would rather follow his dreams than toe the family line, so instead of the support of his wealthy family, he has estrangement and a part-time job with Hunter, an in-demand interior designer. Hunter opens a new world for Kipp to explore—and not just for his career. It’s through Hunter that Kipp meets and begins what he thinks is a one-sided flirtation with Ham, one of Hunter’s customers.

To Kipp’s astonishment, Ham asks him for a date. Unfortunately for Kipp, a mysterious phone call summons him home, where his father gives him an ultimatum: save the family company by marrying billionaire Hyde Wyndham, in which case all will be overlooked, or never set foot in his home again. But meeting Hyde leaves Kipp stunned and betrayed, because Hyde is actually Ham.

A guarantee of marriage is no excuse for making Kipp feel foolish, and Kipp had enough of the gilded cage in the first twenty-one years of his life. He turns Hyde down, stating that marriage should be about love rather than convenience. If Hyde wants him, he’ll have to court him the old-fashioned way.

2.0 out of 5 stars If you miss Harlequin Romance, this is your book 12 Mar 2013
By bkreader - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was first intrigued by this book by the title, then I read the sample, and finally purchased it. However the story premise began to fall apart quickly after the sample portion. I tried to stop reading but I felt like a bystander to a train wreak. I'm not in the habit of writing book reviews (I've maybe written 3) as I'd rather be reading but I'm puzzled as to why this book is rated in the top 10 and did Dreamspinners Press actually think this was worthy of publishing for adults.

Let me explain--cause I did purchase it. The premise of the story is that Kipp must marry Hyde to keep his father's buisness. I wondered why I was fascinated with such a topic but being a longtime romance reader--it later dawned on me that the story reminded me of a Harlequin romance. With the exception, Harlequin does it better.

(A) The year of the story is 2017 and yet the author is talking about mixed raced couples living in segregation or forced to live on the other side of the tracks. And Hyde being concerned with Kipp marrying a half-black man (who really doesn't look black).

B) The main character Kipp reads as if he is a woman from the 1950s. Pure, virginal, removed from the world until he/she meets a worldly gentlemen. A purely Harlequin formula. You forget at times that Kipp is a man. For 3/4ths of the book, he constantly worries why no one loves him. And was he the only one who didn't see how gorgeous he was?

(C) So why doesn't everyone love Kipp--again, the reader gets intrigued (cause this seems interesting) but this is a drama puzzle worthy of a 1980s soap opera--Young and the Restless. There's drama, more drama with secondary characters, more drama with secondary characters who are weirdly connected to the two main characters that make it sort of incestous, and then there is easy forgiveness. Seriously (and I'm not jaded) there is not that much forgiveness in the world. Most emotional conflicts are discussed at pages on end and then resolved in 2 paragraphs It wore me out. This mess was generational and at times you forget who's with who.

(D) Hyde's other first 20 years(and don't want to spoil it) colliding with his next 20 years--left me saying YIKES!

(E)At the end you realize you really know nothing about Hyde other than basic character infomation: he's businessman, who is ruthless and likes to say to plenty of people, "don't you know how ruthless I am" or "I'm the wealthiest, most powerful of the town." (Again, a formula for Harlequin) In the end, you realize Kipp has the emotions of a 15-year old and is seriously too young for 40 year old "worldly" Hyde. Let it be said, I've read books with wide age-gaps and usually don't have a problem with them but you have to keep imagining Hyde being 20 to make this story work.

Tinnean writes well but this seems like a dated piece that was weirdly/hastily updated for publishing deadline. It might have worked if she had made this a LBGT YA novel. It has a weird simplicity but for the adult market, it just doesn't work and that's unfortunate. I wanted to like this book. I did! I read it all the way through even when I knew this story was far too unbelievable.

Tinnean would do better writing about a time period that comforts her and doesn't conflict with her storyline, she should enjoy her characters instead of seeing them as a different distant people (let them have nasty sexy sex, after all that drama the reader gets embroiled in, the characters and the reader deserve to know that they were at least compatible in bed--esp. after Kipp's father tells him to lay still and not move until the sexual act is over--very Harlequin) And lastly, the author must learn that emotion doesn't equal drama. It's just too much.

1.0 out of 5 stars The writing is as strange as the title...... 13 Mar 2013
By MJ - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found this book very hard to understand. The timelines were broken up and difficult to follow. I could almost swear that facts given in the beginning didn't mesh with the storyline later,but there was no way I was going to re-read parts to see if I was right. It just wasn't worth the effort.
Why was it set in 2017? What was the point? It read more like 1960 . I love m/m romance ,but this was just weird. Not one character acted as a normal person would. I didn't even like most of them.
I keep most of my books and read them again ,but this one will be deleted .

1.0 out of 5 stars Just WOW........ 13 Mar 2013
By Summer Time - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The title of this book was interesting as was the reading sample. The time frame would have been better suited to a period romance. The book takes place in 2017 and the expectation of the author for readers suspension of disbelief is over the top. Also, you would like Hyde whom was this very successful business man but the relationship or really the lack of; left you wondering what real interest he had in Kipp? (Kipp, whom had abandonment and intimacy issues and at times expressed himself like a child.) There were never moments that either of their feelings or issues were discussed.
1.0 out of 5 stars Unbelievable 19 April 2013

This books is just as I say in the head-line, but not in a good way. Implausible and utterly devoid of realism in both plot and characters. Bad book.

3.0 out of 5 stars better effort by author 21 Mar 2013
By ELJ - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a better effort then the first book I read by this author, The Best, but it still left a lot to be desired. First, why 2017. No real reason was ever given. Second, why did the older man like the kid. Third, why was Sir such a horrible person. There was simple zero character development but I did want to know what was going to happen and that made it tolerable. HOWEVER, what is up with this author's excessive and unnecessary use of exclamations. Its ridiculous. It was bad in this book and horrible in The Best. Can't figure it out.
