Title: A Working Man
Matthew Hawke’s professional life is soaring as high the powerful bird of prey whose image is inked on his back. He’s at the top of his game as the owner of an advertising agency that is scooping up prime accounts like a mighty hawk wrapping its talons around an unfortunate ground rodent. Yes, work is good. Too bad his love life has more in common with the dying rodent than the triumphant hawk. When the thought of a sexy man trumps actually being with a sexy woman, Matthew thinks it might be time for a change. And there IS a gorgeous man at the gym he’s noticed.
Drakon Mavros is working his shapely ass off to make ends meet. His administrative assistant job at a messenger service is steady, but the money he gets from his more creative job pays most of the bills. An ex-boyfriend took his confidence, his trust and his self-esteem and Drakon is afraid to take another chance at love. When an adorably goofy man at his gym actually hurts himself trying to flirt with him, Drakon can’t resist falling under Matt’s spell. He makes Drakon feel good about himself again and praises his artistic talent – neither of which his ex ever did.
As the men begin to fall for one another, it appears nothing can go wrong – they seem to be soul mates. Secrets and lies can crack even the firmest foundation, though. It takes a true master to shore it up so that it never crumbles. Is love the mortar that can restore trust and faith and bind men forever? Only time will tell. Can Drakon and Matt take that chance?

Start by throwing away any expectations of reality, and just be prepared to enjoy the characters interactions: don’t look for sense or conventional behavior – they won’t be found here.
Sandrine Gasq-Dion brings us the story of Matthew – at a bit of a loose end and not entirely certain of his sexual orientation. Women just aren’t blowing up his thoughts – but there is this uber-hot guy at the gym that he hasn’t found the nerve to talk to.
Drakon is working at a job that almost pays the bills while he hopes for his break into the art world to stop the second job entirely. I didn’t like him much: pretentious, self-aggrandizing and wholly attention seeking. His ‘burned once in love’ attitude just radiated out to encompass all sorts of preconceived notions about others, when really it was hiding his own insecurities.
Matt is a bit of a dork, and completely falling for him: honest about everything except his none-too shabby bank account. And Drakon, being the twit that he is – assumes that everything hinges on that particular issue –willing to throw out everything else.
So – the whole thing was iffy: BUT these characters’ interactions are funny, and their sexual chemistry is hot. I just couldn’t get past my dislike for Drakon.
