Review for Designs of Desire by Tempeste O’Riley

Review: I really loved this story between artist James Bryant and CEO Seth Burns. The emotions that run through this book will make you laugh as well as cry. There are a myriad of interesting characters throughout the book that help keep the story believable and in real life terms.
James Bryant has such a troubling past you see why he is the way he is and scared to take a chance on love.

Seth Burns is someone who didn’t come from a background such as James’. There is so much depth within this story that all you can do is peel back the layers and enjoy.

This is a great m/m story that doesn’t just have hot sex in it (and it’s hot) but it has realism. I will be looking for more from this author.

5 stars for a wonderful love story!

Add to: GoodreadsDescription:Artist James Bryant has forearm crutches in every color from rainbow for fun to sleek black for business. He even has a pair with more paint splatters than metal. After his family’s rejection and abuse from a man he thought loved him, James only just gets through the day by painting. He lives in constant fear that he’s not worthy of anything, let alone love.

As CEO of his company, Carrington Enterprises, Seth Burns is a take-charge kind of guy, and he is instantly smitten by the artist helping with his newest project. When he witnesses James suffer a panic attack, a protective instinct he never knew he had kicks in. He truly believes nothing is unobtainable—including James—if he’s willing to put in the time and effort.

James is shy and confused by Seth’s interest in him as a person. With Seth’s support, can he work through his fears to finally find the true love he deserves, or will someone finally land the crushing blow he won’t survive?
