ANGELS IN THE CITY by GATTETT LEIGH
A fake relationship with a stranger. An office romance with doughnuts and white knights. An addictive arrangement—friends with benefits—fast turns to love.
Jonah Gray is rich, successful, and the most eligible bachelor in the city, according to his mother, at least. But the truth is, despite her efforts to pair him off, he’s fine on his own. All he needs is a date to the Christmas ball.
Sacha Ivanov is a lone wolf, content in the cycle of long days, late nights, and anonymous hook ups, but when a chance encounter in a broken-down lift brings a gorgeous copper-haired CEO into his life, everything begins to change.
As Christmas fast approaches, a favour for a stranger blooms into something more. He doesn’t do second dates or relationships. But for kind-hearted Jonah, his angel in the city, he might just change his mind.
Angels in the City is a Christmas themed MM friends-to-lovers, forced proximity, office romance. Expect fraught days, steamy nights, and true love built around festive snacks and Christmas trees.
The up and downs of Angels In the City kept me reading from the first page till the last until 3 a.m. I was utter exhausted the next morning but had zero regrets!
Jonah and Sacha had an unconventional meeting that quickly spiraled into a friend's with benefits relationship when they couldn't seem to stay away from each other despite neither actually looking for a relationship.
Their chemistry was obvious the moment they met—hello, two hot dudes trapped in an elevator; of course it was—and quickly turned explosive as soon as they got naked. I really enjoyed the ups and downs of their tentative friendship as it became a relationship. Both of them had their fair share of hang-ups. My heart hurt at times as I wondered, "Will they? Won't they?" but by the end of the book, I was smiling.
Sacha was a unique and deep character that I disliked as much as I loved. He was so different than most MCs and I adored him for that. He was perfectly imperfect. Jonah was sweet and stead fast. In the end he was just what Sacha needed to smooth his rough edges.
Angels In the City is definitely one of the better books I read this year!
