Zeke Gulden is a ruthless Wall Street exec. His hard-edged, no-nonsense attitude has served him well in the cutthroat business world, but less so in his personal life. When he finds out his ex-boyfriend cheated on him with a coworker, Zeke can’t let go—not until he finds a way to get even. However, his meddlesome father has other ideas. The new hire at the family-owned bagel store is somewhat colorful, but his dad is sure he’s the perfect man for Zeke.

Benny Ruggieri is a fiercely proud New Yorker who dreams of making it big as a costume designer in the theater. In the meantime, he’s working two part-time jobs in the food biz. When his new boss sets him up with his successful son, Benny has zero expectations. If nothing else, he figures he can entertain himself by making the uptight businessman squirm. Instead, the two become unlikely friends with an inexplicable attraction they can’t ignore. Benny might be the one to help Zeke set aside his quest for revenge, if he’s willing to let go and forgive what he can’t forget… and give in to an unexpected kind of romance.

A Kind of Romance by Lane Hayes is the second book in the A Kind series. This is my first time reading this series and I was not lost at all.
In this story we have Zeke he is full of attitude and spirit. He likes straight forward people. He has an insanely stressful job. No real people skills to speak of. Very serious and uptight.
Benny is a sweet caring person. He works in Zeke's father's bakery. When Zeke's dad falls it is Benny who helps him. He is a talker. Blue bangs knows all of Zeke's family probably better than Zeke does. Funny and easy going. Able to have fun and laugh.
These two seem rather unlikely to fall in love but I think Zeke needs Benny. Benny brings out the kind and sweet Zeke his family has known was there for a long time but Zeke never showed them. I think Benny also allows Zeke to feel safe enough to be his true self around. Benny needs Zeke too. Zeke is strong, sweet, and very much worth the time to get to know. I loved watching these two seemingly opposites fall in love and how Benny brings Zeke back to his family. I cannot wait for more books in this series I know I would be in line to read them.
