When twenty-two-year-old Emilio Sanchez sees handsome Spencer Derdinger walking by his construction site, Emilio makes it his goal to seduce the shy professor. Getting Spencer into bed isn’t difficult, but Emilio soon learns that earning the trust of a man deeply hurt will take time and patience. With a prize like brilliant, sweet Spencer on the line, Emilio decides he is strong enough to face the challenge.

Spencer is surprised when he’s approached by the gorgeous construction worker he’s admired from the safety of his office window. Acting spontaneously for the first time in his thirty-eight years, Spencer takes Emilio home. When the casual hookup turns into the potential for love, Spencer realizes that if he wants to build a life with Emilio, he’ll need to be strong enough to slay his personal demons and learn to trust again.

This has to be my favourite book by Cardeno C, like ever! I have some more to read, but still I loved it!

Emilio caught Spencer's eye whilst working across from his office. Emilio caught Spencer watching, and then, just barged his way into Spencer's home, and his life. I loved how Spencer dealt with it all, Emilio, being younger, brasher, more down to earth than Spencer, totally showing that opposites DO attract!

I loved the way Spencer and Emilio worked through Spence's issues, and how Emilio's brothers took Spencer in, warts and all.

No major fall outs, misunderstandings, or life changing decisions, written in a way only Ms C knows how, and has mastered in a way others should take note. Its not necessary for the characters to fall out and mess up, sometimes, just getting from A to B is story enough, IF IF IF its told well.

Big and burly Emilio works for his family construction business and sweet and shy Spencer is a professor. A lot of books have love at first sight as an element but then there's the build up and the flirting. Here, after admiring each other for weeks, when the first actually meet and then have sex, Emilio is moving in with Spencer. It was all a bit quick and didn't feel in tune with what the geeky professor would have done. Still, a pleasant enough HEA between two very different people.

This is what I can only describe as one of the sweetest most romantic stories I have read in a long time. I absolutely adored Emilio and Spencer's story. Both have an instant attraction to each other but that's where the similarities between them end. Emilio is confident, young and not afraid to go after what he wants and what he wants is Spencer. Spencer is intellectual, older and he is distinctly lacking in confidence when it comes to other men after some pretty horrendous past experiences. He wants Emilio but the fear of rejection stops him from doing anything about it, admiring from afar instead.
The tough, confident man that Emilio is, is exactly what Spencer needs to be himself and find his lost inner confidence. Spencer's past could potentially stop their relationship before it even begins but Emilio's patience and understanding of the situation means that Spencer is given the space and the time he needs and with Emilio's complete attention and love can start to come to terms with the past and start moving forward. Together with the rest of his family, Emilio can give him the love and the acceptance that he so desperately needs.
I loved these two characters and the way in which they bring out the best in other. It is not dramatic but understated and concentrates on the emotions of the characters. It was a read that sucked me into their story and kept me captivated until the end.

This book from beginning to end is definately designed for the deep romantic who loves lots and lots of hot action! Guaranteed romance and just overall warm and fuzzy feeling. I found mysself re-reading a few pages as it was just so sweet and full of emotions etc.

If you like hard-core and action type of stories, this is not for you. Romance and hot love is what this book is all about.

I was gifted this book for a honest review.

Simply a beautiful loving read. I was enthralled with this story. I strongly recommend this book to all lovers of M/M Romance.

Spencer a mature man, works as a professor. He is such a beautiful man, very shy and unsure of people's motives, which leads to lack of trust. He's found relationships to be difficult because of something that happened in his past but the longing to have someone to love and love him back is strong.

Emilio who is twenty two years old knows what he wants and he has his sights set on Spencer. Emilio is one serious hunk of a man. The image this author created in my mind was phenomenal. I was blown away by this character, he's sweet and caring, very mature for his age and the perfect guy to build a future for him and Spencer.

Emilio finally asks Spencer on a date. LOL!! I am laughing because really Spencer had no choice, he was literally swept off his feet like a hurricane named Emilio Sanchez. It all happened so fast but at the right pace for them. Who's to say how quick we fall in love, when you feel it, you have to grab it with both hands and Emilio is not about to let Spencer get away.

Spencer has issues with the age difference but it's soon forgotten about the more time he spends with Emilio. He just doesn't want anyone to think he's taking advantage of him. It's a struggle to not have negative thoughts but he doesn't want to lose him. He's the best thing that's ever happened to Spencer.

Love conquers all. It certainly does in this story. Emilio is strong enough for both of them. Spencer has inner strength, he just doesn't realise till Emilio points it all out to him.
