Lexington Black by Lady Jaguar
Rob Martyn lives an unassuming life; no kids, working a dead-end job, and caught in a relationship with a woman he barely spends time with, let alone touches. Needless to say, this takes a drastic turn as this story begins, where Rob is locked out of his own home, with a few bags of possessions, and his father’s old grandfather clock. His wife is divorcing him, and he’s forced to reassess his life and what he wants to do.
And in comes Lexington Black… *swoon*
Right, so this sounds like an insta-gay moment, but it isn’t. Rob has always felt a bit awkward with women, or sexual experiences in general, long thinking he’s basically been asexual. Well, until he meets Lex, that is. The sexual tiger is unleashed, and there is no going back!
Now, this story has nothing of the usual, but ALL of the unusual! Main characters who aren’t quite what you think they are – yes, Lex is a rich alpha billionaire, but he’s got a softness and weaknesses, so he’s certainly not perfect. Then Rob, not at all as awkward as you would have thought (considering his new sexual identity), but embraces his new life with confidence (albeit perhaps feigned at times).
We also have a range of fantastic side-characters: Rob’s supportive and funny sister, the hilarious but warm drag queen Caressa/Peter, and a host of smaller characters, all of whom play an important role in the story as a whole (Lex’s father, Rob’s other siblings, Philip, etc.)
There are parts of this story that are on the verge of being too good to be true, but to be perfectly honest, I don’t care! And I’m proud to say it! It is a story that weaves together without fault, and it needs to be followed through to the end, for the revelations are excellently presented. I won’t go into detail due to the risk of spoiling, but it was a great end to a fabulous M/M steamy romance. I highly recommend this book!
