OH BOY IS THIS EXACTLY THE RIGHT QUOTE FOR THIS BOOK! HERE IS MY REVIEW:
Equals by: Brigham Vaughn
reviewed by: Bec
Too busy to date while he worked to put himself through school, Russell Bishop's dedication finally pays off; he has a great job with Vantage Marketing. Stephen Parker, CFO of the marketing firm, has resigned himself to a life without a partner. For six months, they wanted each other but it isn’t until Russ slips on spilled coffee, and Stephen rushes to his rescue that they discover their attraction is mutual. However, the twenty year age gap between them proves difficult when they begin dating. Fiercely independent, Russ isn't sure he's ready for long-term commitment. Scarred from a previous relationship, Stephen is afraid history is repeating itself. Is there any way for them to meet in the middle and become equals?
This is the first book I have read by this author, and I must say, I love her style! This is a no holes barred, bare your soul look at two people who couldn't be more different, yet more right for each other!
I love Russ, he is independent, and wants to earn his rewards, not have them given. This endears you to Russ right away, and in addition to that, he has a fighting spirit, but a soft side too. I think fear of losing who he is plays a big part in his wariness to commit.
Steven has been burned and he is scarred from that, but more prominent than that is his attraction to Russ, can he dial back his need to care and provide for the best thing that has ever happened to him before he loses Russ for good?
This book has the best flow, you never get bored or wonder what the author could have done better. This is the perfect book when you want a wonderful heartfelt love story! Thanks Brigham, for giving us a book that we won't soon forget, but will soon re-read!

I REALLY CAN'T WAIT FOR YOU TO READ THIS ONE! HERE IS A SMALL EXCERPT:
As if he’d heard Stephen’s thoughts, Russ straightened and turned his head before hopping in a half circle to face him, smiling widely. “Hey. Didn’t hear you come in.”
Stephen realized he still hovered in the doorway and he stepped forward and let it shut behind him. “Hi. How was your day?”
Russ leaned back against the counter, all of his weight on his uninjured foot. “Once I got over being pissed at you, not bad.”
Stephen gave him a wry smile. “I am sorry; I didn’t mean to come off heavy-handed.” He set the bags in his hands on the counter and walked closer to Russ. “I was worried about you.”
Russ laid a hand on Stephen’s chest, fingers curling around his tie. “I’m a big boy; I can take care of myself.”
Stephen nodded, stepping closer so his feet were between Russ’ but careful not to bump the injured ankle. “I am sure you can,” Stephen said calmly. “But I feel at least somewhat responsible for your accident.”
“I don’t blame you for it.”
“I know you don’t.” For a few heartbeats, they looked at each other until Russ tugged at the tie. Stephen didn’t lean in, but it didn’t take a genius to decipher his intention. He looked up at Stephen and spoke quietly. “It feels strange to be wearing your clothes and sleeping in your bed when we haven’t so much as kissed.”
Stephen’s voice was husky. “Was that a hint?”
“No.” Russ wet his lips. “But this is a demand: I want you to kiss me.”
“I can do that.”
