Book Description:
 
A successful New York architect, Thomas Elkin almost has it all. Coming out as gay and ending his marriage before his fortieth birthday, he needed to start living his life. Now, four years later, with his relationship with his son back on track, and after a few short-lived romances, this esteemed traditional draftsman thought he knew everything about architecture, about life.
 
Cooper Jones, twenty-two years old, is about to take the architect world by storm. Talented, professional, driven, and completely infuriating, Cooper is the definition of Generation Y.
 
Starting an internship working with Thomas, Cooper is about to knock Tom’s world off its axis. Tom can teach Cooper about the architecture industry, but Cooper is about to teach Tom what it means to live.  
 
My Review:
 
Elements of Retrofit (Thomas Elkin #1) by N.R. Walker
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the second book I’ve read by N.R. Walker and I hope to read more soon. Elements of Retrofit is an easy to read m/m romance novel. The plot and characters are well written and I thoroughly enjoyed this novel, N.R. Walker is an excellent author!

Thomas Elkin is successful but very much alone, he spends all his time working even on weekends. As you get to know Thomas you see how lonely he is and how much he desires to have someone in his life. We meet Cooper Jones who is a friend of Thomas son and just by coincidence Cooper ends up becoming an intern with Thomas firm.

As Thomas gets to know Cooper you feel the sparks between them, but there are so many problems ahead. Thomas is 44 and Cooper is 22, besides the age difference, there is work and of course the issue that Cooper is one of his son’s good friends. Can these two put all these difference aside and maybe get what they both desire?

Elements of Retrofit was a great read it’s about 2 men who are attracted to each other and have to decide if age is really just a number.

I have rated Elements of Retrofit a 4 star rating and I would highly recommend to anyone who enjoys a reading a fantastic m/m romance novel; this is one to you need to purchase.

Excerpt:
 
I was in the office on Monday early, like always, and had forgotten about the intake of interns, until Jennifer buzzed me on the intercom. I looked up from the job specifications. “Yes, Jennifer.”

“Sorry to interrupt, Mr Elkin,” she said. “If I could trouble you at my desk for a moment.”

The only time Jennifer ever asked me to come to her desk was when she wanted me to have a visual of a client, or opposition, before I met them. “Sure,” I told her.

Jennifer’s desk ran along the left-hand side of my double doors, which ensured no one got to see me without checking in with her first. I opened the door and she handed me a file, which I opened. “Interns,” she said quietly. “There are three to choose from, that’s them over there.” She looked pointedly toward the waiting room without moving her head.

I looked over to see two young men and one woman, all keen to impress and impeccably dressed. Usually the four executive senior partners got to choose from the top four candidates, so I knew any of the three remaining candidates were good. I read through the very brief credential lists first, not even looking at names or gender. I just wanted talent.

Academically, they were all relatively evenly matched, but it was then a name stood out. I looked over at the suited man who I hadn’t even recognised as the kid who had dinner in my apartment just three nights ago.

He looked different. Gone was the backpacker look, gone was the kid who drank beer and talked about drunken antics with my son.

In his place was a professional, serious man, dressed in a well-tailored suit.

Without another thought, without any thought, I looked at Jennifer, handed her the file and said two words that would change my life.

“Cooper Jones.”
 
Author Bio:
 
Who am I?
 
Good question…
 
I am many things; a mother, a wife, a sister, a writer.
I have pretty, pretty boys who live in my head, who don't let me sleep at night unless I give them life with words.
 
I like it when they do dirty, dirty things...but I like it even more when they fall in love.
 
I used to think having people in my head talking to me was weird, until one day I happened across other writers who told me it was normal.
 
I've been writing ever since…
