Tristan Moreau’s worked for two years as the personal assistant to Webber Kincaid, the CEO of Kincaid International.  In his position, Tristan has many responsibilities and works long hours but it’s a job he enjoys. The only problem is he loves his boss and it’s getting more difficult to keep his feeling under wraps.

Webber Kincaid’s spent his life protecting the company his father built by hiding in the closet. Using his best friend as a girlfriend wasn’t a problem until Tristan entered his life but keeping their relationship professional is becoming a problem. He wants more.  When he and Tristan head to a private Caribbean island for business, it’s the perfect opportunity to see if there’s a chance of turning their professional chemistry into personal passion.

An Unconventional Courtship is another entertaining release by Scotty Cade. This one’s set in the corporate world and is a sweet romance between a boss and his personal assistant. While the premise isn’t new, their easy camaraderie is. I enjoyed how Tristan’s previous experience with a guy is worked into the plot, giving the reader an understanding of why he doesn’t date.  The personalities of both him and Webber are well-developed—they play nicely off each other and I appreciated how their non-work relationship is allowed to develop at a realistic pace. Good going, Mr. Cade.

The descriptions are nicely done, the plot flow is smooth and the secondary characters are well-integrated into the story line. I particularly enjoyed Deanna and her long term friendship with Webber. There are some surprises with her I didn’t see coming and I don’t think you will either. There’s some outside conflict from the business world but not a great deal of angst with them, but I don’t even care. These two are perfect for each other and sometimes, you just need a story that makes you happy to read. There’s even a workplace mystery for Tristan and Webber to solve too. A win-win all around. Enjoy. I did.
