I Do (Not): An MM Office Romance Comedy by Anni Lee

Expanded and re-released, I Do (Not) was author Anni Lee's debut novel and currently their only contemporary MM romance, though hopefully not their last.

From the blurb:

A night in Vegas is all fun and games until you wake up with a ring on your finger and no clue who put it there.

Jacob Conner was never planning to get married, and he's certain that sentiment didn't change even
when he was completely black out drunk on the Vegas strip. Which is also why he has no problem ignoring the elephant in the room and heading back to work at the front desk of a San Francisco luxury hotel.

So when the hotel holds a big conference for its shareholders and Jacob's otherwise cold and aloof boss, Aaron Craig: billionaire and heir to the Craig Hotel Empire, starts taking a special interest in him, he has no idea what he did to be hand picked as the glorified babysitter for his equally important and pompous older brother, Trevor Craig, who just flew in for the week from... Las Vegas.

This is going to be a very, very long week.

I Do (NOT) is an accidental marriage contemporary romantic comedy, featuring three points of view in a billionaire tug-o-war over a sarcastic and unsuspecting desk clerk. You can expect enemies to lovers banter, boss/employee scandal, a lopsided love triangle, crossed boundaries, and a couple slices of humble pie in this gay office romance.

Formerly released under Ninestar Press, the story has been rewritten from the ground up with added content and expanded dialogue and chapters.

Jacquie's Review:

I Do (Not) was the first novel by Anni Lee and is now updated and expanded. I'm so glad that the author decided to do this! I'm accustomed to their paranormal stories, but I just loved this!

Honestly, I got the fear that Jacob was going to pick the wrong brother, and there was the slowest of slow burns, but the payoff was worth it! It was one of those books I didn't want to put down even when I worried it was going to go the wrong way.

Having missed the original version, I have no idea what was changed, but I appreciated the clear characterization, witty banter, and UST between Trevor and Jacob in particular. There are a bunch of side characters, like best friend Liz, that round out the story.

I hope this won't be the only contemporary romance from Anni Lee.
