A career diplomat who's just been sent to a politically interesting Embassy in Europe, he has the perfect wife, speaks five languages and has all the right credentials, yet there's something missing and he doesn't quite know what.
From the first handshake, the young Englishman makes an impression on Jack that leaves him confused and uncharacteristically insecure.
Lucas' position as the British liaison to the American Embassy means they are forced to work together closely and they have a hard time denying the attraction between them, despite their current relationships.
When their women decide to go on a weekend trip together, Jack and Lucas start a passionate relationship, which continues long after their partners return. Diplomatic circles are notoriously conservative though, and they each know that the right woman by their side makes a very significant contribution to their success. Will they be able to make the right choices in their professional and personal lives? Or will they need to sacrifice one for the other?

I was very curious every step of the way to find out how this could possibly turn out well.
Two men hooking up, one married, the other engaged has a lot of mountain to climb to make the characters sympathetic, but this does manage it quite well. Jack does cheat on his wife with Lucas and he does it quite d This story has a lot of diplomatic research and interesting plotting.
Jack does cheat on his wife with Lucas and he does it quite deliberately. He knows he shouldn't but just can't not be with Lucas. Lucas is no innocent. He clearly goes into with his eyes open and has his own relationship going strong at the time.
Not to mention, they work in the diplomatic corp. The diplomatic corp is no stranger to cheating spouses, but gay cheating spouses Generally speaking in a romance genre, no cheater goes without paying the price. Jack and Lucas do pay it, but in the end the price they pay ends up saving their integrity and placing important people in their lives.
Their life becomes their own to make of it what they will. It also frees everyone else to make their own lives. This was a well edited book and the sex was pretty hot. Some of the subplots seemed contrived and were never resolved. View all 3 comments. Apr 03, Ele rated it it was ok Recommended to Ele by: Karen. Now though, it didn't leave much of an impression. I didn't hate it and I did't really feel the need to dnf bu at the same time I did get bored and there was a lot of eye rolling involved.
For a man who never gave in to his needs to be with another guy in order to protect his career, Jack gave in way too easily to Lucas. The cheating came easily with just a little bit of guilt and the wife was, conveniently, the bitch who only cared about her image. Also, Lucas leaving Jack without even saying goodbye when Jack was injured, to me it felt just playing the martyr to give more angst to the story and honestly quite an idiotic move.
And after months of separation Jack is so ready to forgive Lucas in a blink of an eye without even asking for an explanation. Yeah, I didn't buy it. And where the hell view spoiler [did that kid come from? Phrases like the older man, the younger man, the American, the British when they were referring to each other started to feel ridiculous after a while.
In this book we got the wife's, the girlfriend's and the secretary's huh?! I liked the whole concept and the closeted politician theme though, and I'm sorry I didn't like this book more View all 29 comments. May 21, Mati rated it it was amazing Shelves: , m-m. This book had the exact plot and characters who are fitting to my fetish. I like handsome, powerful men in tailored suits. The romance is so perfect and so sweet that made my head spin.
Jack Christensen, USA ambassador,was perfect man with perfect marriage and education. His career was on its prime and he was striving for the higher position. His marriage with perfect woman, whom everybody admired was flawless, but something was missing This book had the exact plot and characters who are fitting to my fetish. His marriage with perfect woman, whom everybody admired was flawless, but something was missing in his life, something creeping to his mind especially in the dark.
He had never ever indulged his fantasies about men until Right appeared. Lucas Carlton, young Brit, who was working on relationship between his embassy and USA was somehow dragged to the older man and yes he did not remain unanswered.
There was plenty romance, plenty wife and girfriend cheating stuff as well as shooting on USA ambassador to get thrill to readers veins. The ending was little unexpected but very sweet. Wedding and daughter. View all 10 comments. Go Team 6 - Living In Spin!!! So, yeah. This book. Well, I only barely didn't like it. It was okay. I'm not a fan of blatant cheating but I chose to challenge myself; I decided to keep reading even after I realized that the wife is still there and all this is going on under the radar.
But, okay, I do like imperfect characters and character growth so I chose to pass all that prejudice through a filter to see if I could let it g 2. But, okay, I do like imperfect characters and character growth so I chose to pass all that prejudice through a filter to see if I could let it go and enjoy the story. I still didn't like it. Some parts of it were a little preachy and judgemental. I didn't like how the women were characterized at all.
You know, it is possible that a wife knows her husband is bisexual, accepts this aspect of him and isn't insecure. Maybe if it all that had been discussed up front?
He knew; he should have told her.
