Genetic Celebrity

Genetic Attraction

Once again Tara Lain has drawn me into a story that I couldn’t put down. The emotional pull grabs you, the hot guys entice you, and the story line keeps you. When hidden desires are disclosed, a relationship starts but this change may close off another budding romance. There is nothing traditional about the relationships that have developed except lots of love which is something Shay has never had and not sure if he trusts it. From start to finish, I had my heart strings tugged as Shay tries to find his way while Tommy and Booky try to figure out how to express the love they have for each other and for Shay.

This story is an awesome addition to Ms Lain’s Genetic Attraction series. Tommy and Booky have been secondary characters in previous books and in this one they take the main stage. Roan, Em and Jake make appearances; in fact, Roan is the person who “discovered” Shay while walking down the street. Shay ends up staying with Tommy at the loft and while Tommy feels an attraction towards the younger man, he thinks Shay just feels gratitude. Booky has always thought Tommy is gay but when he reviles that he’s bi, she wonders if her fantasies might be fulfilled. Nothing is easy as this trio works their way through discovering what is truly important.

There are lots of sexual and sensual scenes in this story in various combinations of participants. They are part of the story and enhance it but if more than just m/f bothers you, be warned that there is a lot more than that. However, the emotions that are intertwined with each scene are such that even if this isn’t what you normally read, you’ll be drawn into the story. If it is what you normally read, you’re in for a treat!

Book Blurb for Genetic Celebrity

The amateur chef, the ambitious agent, and the androgynous model -- food of love or recipe for disaster?

Tommy Riley loves cooking and the simple life. But his passion for Angie “Booky” Edelson is anything but simple. Beautiful, ambitious, hard-driving and 10 years older than Tommy, Booky represents all the things Tommy has tried to leave behind. Besides, she only seems to love him for his food! Then Tommy's boss brings home "Shay" Shaleen, a pierced, tattooed, androgynous street kid, for Booky to turn into a top male model. Tommy sizzles for the beautiful guy but Shay gets caught up in the flattery of a famous fashion designer.

Why does Tommy have to fall for two people who can't love him back? Is there a recipe for blending with genetic celebrities?
