Oooo a M/M office romance! And there was major auditing happening lol. You know that’s what I do right. Well I don’t do surprise audits. Those sound horrible. Our clients hire us and they still don’t want us there so a surprise audit sounds like it’s even more fun.
Raymond is wealthy, from his family, and a very smart partner at his company. He chose to work outside his family business to make a name for himself. His executive assistant Elvin goes above and beyond even coming to his house before work to shoo away his one night stands and make him the perfect cup of coffee. But Elvin has a very different homelife with his father having health issues and his mother working very hard for his younger siblings. He is very much helping to support them in any way that he can.
Loved the demisexual rep and pretty sure Ray was pansexual but I missed if they said it. Just from his preferences.
The slow burn as these two who were always around each other realized that they were actually perfect for eachother was steamy. Elvin needed that connection and he had never had any with anyone before and Ray had tons of connections but nothing ever felt right.
Though that ending jeez – Canadian Mafia!

“A childhood crush gets a second chance in this heartwarming gay romance.” —Publishers Weekly on Hard Sell
A boss. His employee.
And a scandal that’s about to change everything…
As an operating partner at Jade Harbour, Raymond Chao prides himself in fixing even the most disastrous of portfolio companies—no matter the cost. While his colleagues might not always like his methods, they love his results. But his latest business partner isn’t cooperating, and what’s worse, Raymond’s underhanded tactics have landed him in hot water with the law.
Elvin Goh has been Raymond’s assistant for years, and he’s been in love with the charming, ruthless playboy for just as long. There’s very little that Elvin won’t do—or hasn’t done—for Raymond. Impossible crush aside, it’s his job. But this time, even Elvin can’t see a way out.
When long nights in the office lead to whispered confessions and a newfound intimacy, it seems like a dream come true—for both of them. But with the prospect of failure on the horizon, can this dream team beat the odds and come out the victors in the office and in their hearts?
Carina Adores is home to romantic love stories where LGBTQ+ characters find their happily-ever-afters.
