REVIEW : The Law of Attraction by Jay Northcote

Teaser by Jay Northcote, cover by one and only Garrett Leigh !

I have a weakness for office romances, and I have weakness with green eyes and guys with tie, and office affairs between two men.
And look at 'that gorgeous cover !, I'm sold !
Well, Jay fulfilled my craving for a sweet low angst office romance real good.
The book started with sex between strangers. I usually not very fond of this kind of encounters, but, Jay executed it really well. And the morning after, the walk of shame, the coldness in the morning. Well, strangers. What would you expected from that anyway?
Except, Ed Piper is not an ordinary stranger. He appeared in the office, as a new member of Alec's team. Ha !
But Alec is not out. He's deep in the closet for some reasons.
So, awkward. And quite painful for an out and proud Ed.

The journey of Alec's inside battle with himself is very interesting. I liked it a lot, because he's not jump into decision right away to come out, takes time for him to make him accepted himself as a gay man. was it because of Ed? Partly, yes. But mostly, because he's tired of hiding for too many years.

I liked Ed's family so much. And the twins ! The innocent comments made me smile.
And the 'conflict' with Alec's family, not overly dramatic, just what I liked it to be.

I loved the ending, somehow, it's reasonable, James make it easier for Alec to tell his friends he has a relationship with Ed (Oh, James called shagging ! Hilarious guy!).

This is a very fun, sweet read which I liked from Jay. Couldn't ask for better ending for Alex and Ed!
One of my favorite from this author.
