ARC REVIEW : The Heir Apparent by Tere Michaels
The heir apparent to a vast international company, Henry Walker has focused his entire life on pleasing his cold and distant father, a futile effort that’s left him no time for life, love, or making his own decisions. He has just one friend—one dirty little secret—Archie Banks. Raised on the Walker estate alongside Henry, Archie is now Henry’s driver, bodyguard… and occasional lover. Archie is loyal, but he’s about to graduate from college and has plans for his life that don’t include living every moment at the beck and call of Henry’s father. Not even for Henry.
With no warning, a shocking kidnapping leads to tragedy and chaos, thrusting Henry and Archie into a dramatic struggle that threatens them individually and as a couple. Can they find a way to heal the hurt of the past, save the company that is Henry’s birthright, and find a future together?
The Heir Apparent by Tere Michaels
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
2nd edition by Dreamspinner Press.
This is surprisingly a really fun read for me.
I liked Archie and Henry's relationship, even though Henry need a little more spine and talk to his father about it rather than assuming, you know?
I liked how devoted Archie is with Henry, taking care of him with no doubt. No question asked when Henry acting weird, especially during the sex session :P
Their sexy time has always been sexy, and romantic at some point. Forbidden and dangerous...but they never thought that Henry's father knew or okay, everyone. He and Archie were just apparently not really good with hiding their feelings to each other.
There's no father - son typical conflict, remember about assuming? Thet's what Henry did. After it was too late for him and his father to have a real talk. After he knew finally, how much his father loved him, on his own way.
The bad guy, I think I knew about him from the very early after the kidnapping, the 'sign' was there. I have no idea why Archie and Henry didn't 'see' that.
Overall, this was fun, aside from what happened to Henry's father (nobody wanted that happened).
There's a strong HFN for Henry and Archie. I believed, it's their HEA, knowing they're always together since they're five.
