Spencer is having a frustrating sort of day. First, he finds out that the interns at his company aren’t getting paid, so he fixes that. Then he finds out that his app has gone viral, which is great. Or, at least, it should be. But to take advantage of this sudden popularity, Spencer’s going to need to push his people to be more on the ball, quicker with updates, quicker with replies to consumers, and to make certain he has a dedicated server to prevent lag or connection issues. Which means money. Money he has less of now that he’s paying his interns.
However, every cloud has a silver lining. Spencer’s horrible, hateful, and not-so-dearly departed grandmother left him quite a tidy nest egg with one cruel caveat. He has to be married to touch it. However, since her death, laws have changed and Spencer — who is unashamedly gay — can now marry a man if he wants to. But he needs the money now (today would be nice) and he hasn’t even been on a date in a year. The answer to his problem, however, may be right in front of him.
Bram Wilson is in debt. His student loans, his bills, his expenses … it’s only a matter of time before he has to start begging for help from his friends. Already he has to ask them to pay for lunch because his debit card has run dry. When Spencer offers to pay off his student loans in exchange for a signature, it’s not a hard ask, especially when Bram actually likes the man proposing to him. And if their first kiss is anything to go by, maybe this marriage won’t simply be a business arrangement.
This novella is fairly straightforward in its story, which contains familiar and predictable plot lines. It’s helped with a charming couple who develop a friendly rapport and have a quick, sharp chemistry in their relationship. Really, it’s just a fun piece of fluff that I very much enjoyed reading.
