Lord of a Thousand Steps (Love in Laguna #4) by Tara Lain

To architecture student Ian Carney, family means everything. Taken in by his brother, Jim, when his father threw him out at eighteen for being gay, Ian yearns to create his own family with his boyfriend, Rico. But Rico’s in Mexico caring for a sick father, Ian hasn’t had sex in a month and a half, and his gorgeous boss, Braden Lord, CEO of the architectural firm Ian interns for, is looking better and better.

Braden’s life is chaos. Just out of the closet and going through an ugly divorce from his wife of fifteen years who’s trying to take custody of his two children, he desperately resolves not to succumb to a completely inappropriate attraction to Ian—even though his kids adore both the man and his crazy cat.

When Rico proves to be a snake in the grass and Ian exercises his powers of seduction, what starts as a “friends with benefits” fling turns into real life real fast. Can Ian give up his romantic dreams for an “old guy” who didn’t come out until he carried a mountain of baggage? It’ll only take a thousand steps.

My review:
I love this series. Tara Lain often makes me confront my comfort zone and this book is no different. We met Ian Carney and his cat Anderson Cooper in Knave of Broken Hearts (Love in Laguna #2) which if you haven’t read you should. This book takes place 3 years later. This is the story of Ian and his boss Braden. Braden has just come out of the closet. He is going through an ugly divorce from a bitter woman and is trying to keep his relationship with his two kids from hitting the skids. The relationship between these two starts off awkwardly and takes some time and effort. There is the age difference and the children and the power exchange at work. The author somehow resolves these issues to my satisfaction by the end of the book.
