Chase Moore is devastated when he learns his hot boyfriend proposed to a woman. With his love life in tatters, Chase pours himself into his interior design career. But when a fabric order for an important client goes awry, it threatens to put him over the edge. Drowning his sorrows in a cup of hot, black coffee before consulting on his next big job seems like the answer—until he see Frank.

Frank Hilliard doesn’t believe in fate or karma or any of those silly things when he stops into the java shop, until a powerful attraction draws him to meet a gorgeous man’s gaze. He approaches the stranger’s table with every intention of following a gut instinct to get to know him better—much better.

When Chase discovers the man who sets his body—and soul—on fire is the husband of his newest client, he vows not to be the 'other man' again, but his heart and his body just aren't listening. Frank awakens feelings he never wanted to have--raw and primal--and just when Chase is certain it has to end, the real truth of Frank's situation reveals a stunning secret that promises more than Chase ever bargained for


Decorated with Love by Parker James is my first time reading this author’s work. I liked the style very much, fast paced but lots of love and compassion with the characters.  I liked the drive that Chase seems to have. He is driven by something inside himself to be a better person that he was in the past. Hurt might be the catalyst but his own internal compass has a play in it too.
Frank has a lot on his plate. His home life is less than the perfect image he puts out for the world to see. It is not only his fault but his wife’s as well. They both are living a lie that is more than time to end.  I liked Frank a lot he is a stand up person.  His chemistry with Chase is off the charts hot.  Watching him fight that attraction was more than equally hot as well.
Over all the characters in this book have a great story to tell. They are well rounded, and have dimension that really made me love them.  There are some secondary characters that really need their own stories done, so I hope that there is more to this series in the future. If you want a well thought out romance this is the book to pick up.
