Attorney Nathan Llewellyn is ordinary,
straight-laced, and slightly geeky. Administrative
assistant Barnaby Lassiter is flamboyant, vivacious, and a
bit over the top. The two have nothing in common, except
that they work for the same law firm…and – unbeknownst to
one another – have the hots for each other. When Nathan
calls in sick and Barnaby has to take a file to him, the
young admin takes the opportunity to take care of Nathan.
When Nathan asks him out to dinner as a thank you, it leads
to things going further than either man could have dared to
hope. But Nathan and Barnaby are as different as night and
day. How could a relationship between them possibly work?
Opposites attract in the lively
Only For Him. Shawn Lane takes two men who have
very little in common and somehow manages to make it work.
I adored the somewhat nerdy Nathan, mostly because he’s
flawed, but acknowledges and makes up for his mistakes.
Barnaby is a somewhat more colorful character than I’m used
to, but he has a sweetness about him that’s charming. He’s
bold, open, and at times endearingly vulnerable – how could
I resist him?
Only For Him can be read
as a standalone, but fans of Shawn Lane will recognize the
heroes of Only In His Dreams as major secondary
characters in the tale. I finished Only For Him
wanting to rush and read not just Only In His Dreams,
but the upcoming Only His Heart, featuring Barnaby’s
intriguing older brother Calvin. Only For Him
is the first story I’ve read by Shawn Lane, but with its
fascinating cast of characters, I can definitely say it
won’t be the last.
