Burning for you is the first book I've read by Kat Grant and it won't be my last! Ms. Grant's easy style of writing and fast paced storytelling skills quickly swept me up into this opposites attract/love at first sight themed book. Burning for you was sweet and romantic and is a perfect pick me up if you are looking for a lighter, sexy read.
When blue collared worker Patrick Medcaff met Professor Christian Jennings, both men could have sworn that they felt the Earth move. Patrick is a little more than surprised by this attraction he feels for the Professor. Christian isn't like anyone he's ever had feeling for before and this worries him a little. Where Patrick must work two jobs to make ends meet, Christian lives comfortably and doesn't have to worry about money. Christian is educated, older, sexy and more stable than anyone Patrick has ever gone out with before. As the men start working through their differences, they begin to form an emotional bond that they've never felt with anyone before. Just as they start to really realize the love they feel for one another, Patrick's ex-boyfriend tries to worm his way back into Patrick's life and heart. Will the love and devotion Patrick and Christian have for one another be strong enough for them to continue to be together, forever?
I really liked this book a lot. I thought both Patrick and Christian were interesting and very likeable characters. It was easy to rally behind them and root for their relationship to work out. The chemistry between Patrick and Christian was intense and very sexy. I love a good opposites attract storyline, and Burning for you gave me everything I look for when I read a homoerotic romance. This would be a great book for those who have been flirting with the idea of reading this genre. Although, the sex scenes are quite steamy, the love story is lovely and fulfilling to read about.
Patrick Medcaff is a thirty-something blue collar worker trying to make ends meet in Manhattan. He dreams of owning a condo, and in order to do that he has to work a part-time job along with his full time job as a handyman at the ritzy St. Jennings hotel. Patrick will be the newest addition to the New York City College janitorial staff where he is introduced to the shark looking handsome Dean of the Economics department, Christian Jennings.
When Christian and Patrick meet, sparks fly between the two. Patrick thinks nothing can come out of their attraction because Christian is a college graduate who comes from an affluent family made of money, while he barely has two pennies to rub together. Christian, on the other hand, can't get Patrick off his mind, and will prove that although they are opposites in every way, their desires for one another can't be ignored.
Soon these two are embarking on a secret love affair. But when an ex-boyfriend of Patrick’s comes back to claim him, Christian will do whatever he can to keep Patrick as his own.
