I once was a nurses aide at a Nursing Home. It was a demanding job. Once while I was helping an elderly gentleman to the shower, he decided I should help him a lot more than simply helping him there. Rough day but the hardest part was the mornings when I came in to find one of the residents had passed. Spending time, getting to know them was a blessing and losing one, was the worst. The job became so difficult, I did leave after working a year.
What was your worst job? How much did you have to put up with before you walked away?
In Celia Mulder's sequel to Celebrity Spin Doctor, THE ISSUES WITH ANTONS, Simon Anton faces a job where he's walked away but now he's returned. But not without drama and some desperate measures. If you love spunky, funny romantic comedies, then THE ISSUES WITH ANTONS is perfect for you!
Celebrity Spin Doctor, Simon Anton is back and ready to manage the hell out of some celebrity reputations. He has one problem – no one will work with him. When his one remaining client disappears following a cryptic rendezvous in a nightclub, Simon needs to find him or risk losing the business he’s worked so hard to build.
Tech company CEO JP Tanaka met a hot guy and lost him. When he does find Simon Anton again, he’s not letting the man get away. But Simon’s world is a very different place from his own and JP’s commitment to the budding relationship is tested at every turn.
Retrieving the missing celebrity will take the combined forces of multiple Antons, a boyfriend who is about to be an ex, an undercover private investigator, and a large bag of sex toys. But the biggest threat to their happiness isn’t Simon’s past, it’s Simon himself.
Simon undertakes the biggest spin of his career, convincing himself he’s not in love.
“Is that…what you’ve got?” Well, that was terrible. He’d meant to say, “Is that the best you’ve got.” But he’d had some of the martini and he had mentioned the guy was cute, right?
The guy gave him a curious look, but he was smiling so he didn’t seem to mind the fact JP’s brain had clearly disconnected from his mouth. “Seems to be working on you,” he said and the smile grew.
JP took a bigger gulp of the martini than he thought. He’d forgotten it wasn’t water and sputtered as the liquor burned his throat. He sat up, hunched forward by the force of his sudden and embarrassing coughing attack.
Cute guy sprang into action, sitting behind JP on the white pool lounger and patting his back gently until he’d coughed himself out. Even when he was done choking, the guy’s hand stayed, rubbing his t-shirt, warm and soft and definitely present. JP couldn’t help it. He tensed up a little bit. He wasn’t used to meeting complete strangers and then them giving him a back rub five seconds later.
The cute guy stopped and moved over to the lounger next to JP, sitting across from him. “Sorry.”
JP shook his head. “No. Thank you. I, um, thought it was water.”
The guy laughed. “Do you always drink water out of martini glasses?”
JP was grinning now too. He couldn’t help it. The guy’s smile was infectious. “Always. Either that or giant mason jars with sippy cup lids.”
“Nothing in between?”
JP rolled his eyes. “Don’t be foolish.”
The guy laughed again. “Since you managed to drain your drink rather impressively, shall I get you another? Water in a martini glass?”
“Yes, thank you. But perhaps somewhere more around the one hundred percent gin type water.”
