When Adam met Jack by G.A. Hauser

This is almost a "welcome back friends" book. It gathers characters from a bit of older books, as primary characters or little cameo appearances.

Adam, Ewan's Hollywood agent from "For Love and Money, the same man who made a move on Jason, Ewan's lover, is now in big trouble: his business partner is on trial for sexual harassment and he's clearly guilty, since it's the same thing he made on Ewan, and the reason why the guy chose to leave Hollywood and return back in England. Before the troubles carry away also him, Adam asks help to a good lawyer, Jack.

Jack is Mark's friend and rejected wanna-be lover from "Capital Games". He is still mourning on the fact that Mark moved with Steve, and he seems unable to free him from the intrusive figure. But when Jack sees Adam, he realizes that maybe he can't forget Mark, but he can move on: Adam is not as beautiful as Mark, but he is a good man and a funny lover.

Both Adam than Jack were positive characters in the previous books and they deserve an own book. "When Adam met Jack" is a collective book, one of that books usually the authors write after a long series to collect all the dearer characters and gift their reader with a rest and relax reading, enjoying the familiar faces and spying on the life of their favorite characters. And so here we have a good insight in Mark and Steve from "Capital Games", and cameo appearance of Ewan from "For Love and Money", Jennifer Bernstein from "Secrets and Misdemeanors", Angel Loveday from "Love you, Loveday" (hope to haven't forget someone).

Jack is a big boy with a self-consciousness issue. He was in love with Mark from so long that he has idealized the man and probably he is persuaded that, if Mark chose someone other, is because he is not enough worthy. The relationship with Adam is a strenght tonic, since the man he so deeply impressed and in awe of Jack, that he is a boost for his ego. Adam is a quite and nice character. Probably not so sparkly and impressing as Mark or Jack, but with an aurea of his own. He is a very good man.

"When Adam met Jack" is a book which slows smoothly and fast, you arrive at the end without realize that you have read almost 200 pages in a blurry to now how it ends.
