Change for You by Crystal Lacy
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Hot, sweet, romantic, curmudgeonly and sexy as all get out!
OMG I loved this book. It was a lovely relationship book. There were no car chases, no explosions, no murders or mysteries to solve. What there was was two beautiful souls, one still full of hope and light, the other battle scarred and hiding behind snark, falling in love. A May-December romance in an accounting office. In Honolulu, Hawaii. And it was perfect.
Mr. December, Stephen Webb, is bitter, wounded and has had his ego and his belief in love and happily ever afters trampled by life. He's an accountant, and a damned good one, because it's a safe and secure job; two things that Stephen needs given his rough start at life. His boss is a nasty, cranky douche canoe who won't make him partner even though he deserves it. It's making him become grouchy, sarcastic and a workaholic to the point it cost Stephen his last relationship.
And then intern Minoru 'call me Max' Kamigawa walks into his life and not only makes himself indispensable during the busy tax season when Stephen's department is understaffed thanks to douche canoe, but he brings light and laughter and music back into Stephen's life. Not to mention Max is sexy as all get out and Stephen can't keep his eyes off of him.
But Max's first love is music, not accounting; he's taken the internship out of a need to help his mother and his grandmother and to be practical about life. Music doesn't pay the bills, doing other peoples taxes does. And then there's the fact that Max can't keep his eyes off of the grumpy silver fox either.
What starts as a drunken hook-up becomes so much more. Max falls head over heels for and Stephen despite being warned not to, and Stephen is trying to make partner so becoming involved with his 20 years younger intern is anything but smart. But the heart wants what the heart wants and ultimately Stephen is forced to decide if Max is worth risking his shot at partnership, his job security and changing his curmudgeonly ways for a chance at love. Real love. And maybe even forever.
