Avvocati innamorati

La paura di essere come il padre fedifrago ha portato l’avvocato Asher Caldwell a costruire una barriera attorno al proprio cuore. Riuscirà l’ex procuratore distrettuale Zach Richardson ad abbattere quei muri per liberare l’uomo passionale che si nasconde dietro allo stacanovista con la fobia di impegnarsi. Oppure sarà la gelosia di Zach a distruggere ciò che stanno cercando di costruire?

Una nuova vita e un nuovo amore: è quello che Zach spera di trovare quando lascia l’ufficio del procuratore distrettuale e permette agli amici di trasformarlo. Ma l’esperimento sarà riuscito? Il suo nuovo aspetto attira l’attenzione di Asher Caldwell, il suo capo. Zach ha una cotta segreta per lui e un incontro fortuito porta a un gioco di seduzione, e a uno scambio di identità. Purtroppo, e con orrore, Zach scopre che l’uomo lo credeva un escort a pagamento. Asher, dal canto suo, è mortificato di aver fatto sesso con un dipendente. Ciò nonostante, la notte passata insieme ha significato molto per entrambi, tanto che vogliono provare a frequentarsi. C’è una possibilità che la loro storia d’amore funzioni, ma Zach dovrà convincersi che ad Asher basterà l’amore di un solo uomo e imparare a fidarsi di lui… e Asher dovrà imparare a fidarsi di sé stesso.

Die erfolgreichen Anwälte Dane Coulter und Cal Monroe sind Rivalen im Gerichtssaal und Freunde hinter den Kulissen. Doch können sie mehr sein?

Cal hat immer heimlich nach Dane geschmachtet. Allerdings verdrängt Dane seine Homosexualität so sehr, dass er nicht mal zugeben kann, dass er möglicherweise schwul ist. Sein Vater, ein fanatischer Homophober, regiert die Familie mit eiserner Hand und drängt Dane zu einer Verlobung – mit einer Frau. Um seine Mutter zu schützen, stimmt Dane zu. Für Cal bringt die Sache jedoch das Fass zum Überlaufen.

Er kann nicht zulassen, dass Dane einen Fehler macht, der sein gesamtes restliches Leben ruiniert und kennt nur einen todsicheren Weg, damit Dane sich eingesteht, wie es in seinem Herzen aussieht. Seinem Freund seine Gefühle zu offenbaren, könnte jedoch nach hinten losgehen und einen Keil zwischen sie treiben. Und selbst dann ist es Dane, der die Entscheidung treffen muss: Das Leben zu leben, das sein Vater von ihm erwartet oder alles, was er hat, für die Chance auf Glück in Cals Armen aufzugeben.

Avvocati innamorati

Gli avvocati di successo Dane Coulter e Cal Monroe sono rivali in tribunale e amici nella vita privata. Ma potrebbero essere qualcosa di più?

Cal ha da sempre una cotta per Dane, che però non è dichiarato e fatica persino ad ammettere di essere gay. Suo padre, un omofobo violento che controlla la famiglia con il pugno di ferro, obbliga Dane a fidanzarsi con una donna. Lui acconsente per mantenere la quiete e proteggere la madre, ma per Cal è la goccia che fa traboccare il vaso.

Non può permettere che l’amico faccia un errore che potrebbe rovinargli la vita, e solo lui conosce un modo infallibile per fargli ammettere cosa si cela nel suo cuore. Ma confessare i propri sentimenti gli si potrebbe ritorcere contro, incrinando in modo irreparabile il loro rapporto. Toccherà comunque a Dane scegliere se vivere la vita che vuole suo padre oppure rinunciare a tutto quello che ha per essere felice tra le braccia di Cal.

Avocats amoureux

Les célèbres avocats Dane Coulter et Cal Monroe sont rivaux au tribunal et amis en coulisses. Mais pourront-ils être davantage ?

Cal en a toujours pincé pour Dane, mais celui-ci est si profondément dans le placard qu’il ne peut même pas admettre la possibilité d’être gay. Son père, un homophobe enragé qui dirige sa famille d’une main de fer, force Dane à se fiancer… à une femme. Dane entre dans son jeu pour maintenir la paix et protéger sa mère, mais pour Cal, c’est la goutte qui fait déborder le vase.

Il ne peut pas laisser Dane commettre une erreur qui pourrait gâcher le reste de sa vie et il ne connaît qu’un seul moyen infaillible de lui faire admettre ce qui se trouve dans son cœur. Mais déclarer ses sentiments à son ami pourrait mal tourner, creusant un fossé entre eux. Et même ainsi, le choix doit venir de Dane : vivre la vie que son père désire ou abandonner tout ce qu’il a pour avoir une chance de bonheur dans les bras de Cal.

Avocats amoureux

Une occasion inattendue se présente pour le timide avocat Kevin Anderson quand il tire le nom du bel avocat Erik Wilson pour l’échange secret de cadeaux de Noël de leur cabinet. Kevin se languit de son ami depuis longtemps, mais il craint de ruiner leur relation de travail si Erik ne lui rend pas ses sentiments. L’anonymat de l’échange lui donnant la chance de lui faire savoir que quelqu’un est intéressé, Kevin transforme donc le cadeau en jeu : douze jours de présents, chacun plus suggestif, se terminant par une rencontre au réveillon – s’il trouve le courage d’aller jusqu’au bout !

Erik est intrigué par son Père Noël secret, qui lui a donné quelque chose à attendre avec impatience jusqu’aux fêtes pour la première fois depuis des années.

Lorsque ses tentatives pour commencer quelque chose avec celui-ci échouent, Erik accepte l’invitation à dîner de son admirateur secret. Il est loin de soupçonner que le vilain petit assistant du père Noël est l’homme qui fera de tous ses rêves de Noël une réalité dans une romance qui passe du doux au piquant pour deux avocats sexy.
