Love never goes out of style.
Landry Bishop fled his tiny hometown and never looked back. Now his expertise in food, fashion, and décor has earned him all of Hollywood’s glittering perks. But with his husband deceased and his personal assistant retired, Landry has nobody to rely on—and no one to help him indulge his secret cravings.
Casual, plainspoken Jordan Stryker seems a dubious choice of a PA for someone as formal and self-controlled as Landry. Jordan’s questionable fashion sense and limited kitchen skills don’t exactly enhance his résumé. But as Landry soon realizes, Jordan has many attractive qualities too.
With a strong pull toward Jordan, new career opportunities on the horizon, and a persistent tug from family back home, Landry is in a quandary. He can advise others on how to make their lives special, but what should he do about his own?
Christelle's rating :
First of all, when I read a book from Kim Fielding, I can’t help swooning at the thought of her fantastic book Rattlesnake: one of my favorite read. But I digress.
"Redesigning Landry Bishop" is a contemporary MM romance, with low-angst, a little bit of steam and a touch of banter, a “comfort” read with two truly nice characters slowly but steadily developing a romantic relationship between LA, Las Vegas and Nebraska, and a gentle HEA.
On one side, you have Landry, who left his Nebraska’s little home-town for LA where he met his now deceased husband and made his career to give nice ideas about food and clothing to sparkle daily life on blogs, books and TV shows : he’s committed, he’s successful and he’s a workaholic. But he might have lost his way to interact with the people around him and to have feelings.
Comes around Jordan : younger, more extraverted, and a carer, as he says about himself. And it’s such in its nature that even Landry can feel that he’s right to give Jordan a chance to fill the PA’s position despite a lack of experience and that in the process, he might be a sweet risk to open up to people, especially his family and specifically Jordan.
