Objectified by Jo Tannah
Published by eXtasy Books Genres: Contemporary, MM
Billionaire Paul Howell is extremely savvy when it comes to people trying to use him, especially where sex is concerned. Those wanting to be seen on his arm or dating Paul don’t last long at the best of times, posers don’t last a night. As the owner of CyNapse, one of the leading IT companies in the world, Paul is well aware of what people see in him and want from him.
A career as a model begun in childhood cast a necessary shell around Arjan Kerchner’s heart. No one seemed to bother to look beyond the beautiful face to see the intelligent mind within. Eventually Arjan tired of the false, plastic promises and chose to devote his life to what he loved. Associate Chemistry Professor at Seattle University Arjan is exactly where he wants to be, teaching and inspiring the next generation. The money he made as a model simply wasn’t worth the hassles and fawning fans.
A chance meeting at a crowded bar must be fate. Paul doesn’t believe in love at first sight yet from the moment he spies Arjan at a corner booth surrounded by papers and books he’s instantly hooked. Whatever it takes he wants to get to know Arjan who’s understandably gun shy when someone tries to sweep him off his feet.
Slowly but surely the one time model unthaws and allows the charming billionaire to have his way. As Paul and Arjan get to truly know each other, make mistakes, and fall further in love neither is aware that someone has already staked out the gorgeous retired model as his own. Someone who won’t take kindly to stealing his love, at least in his eyes.
Two prince charmings and a stalker are set on a dangerous collision course in Objectified. Engaging main characters and an unknown dark shadow give the story solid motivating twists in the extremely satisfying romance. Intelligent dialogue brings further depth to Objectified, along with great pacing and a slick plotline. The creepy stalker allows the happily ever after tale the right amount of tension. Great love, great evil equals great entertainment.
