Blair Clark has reached his breaking point. Forced to leave one job because of sexual harassment, he’s having difficulty finding another. Since no one believes what happened, Blair’s left with a stain on his employment record that he can’t get rid of. He’s had to move back home with his mother. As if that’s not bad enough, he realizes his crush, Travis, is simply using him. His romantic life looks as hopeless as his job search.

Jack Ross is sure he’ll never find anyone who’ll love him for who he is. All anyone sees is the port-wine stain on his left cheek—not the man behind it. Even his mother thinks he should get rid of it. But the procedure is difficult and painful.

When Blair applies for a secretarial position with Jack’s firm, both men learn that beauty is, indeed, in the eye of the beholder. It’ll take a lot of trust to chase away their insecurities, but if they take a chance on one another, love will find a wa

Stained by Chris T. Kat this story is about finding the truth and beauty beneath what the outer layers.
Blair was fired for sexual harassment from his job. He did not do it but no one will believe him. He cannot find work when he applies to work as a secretary for Jack he suspects he is going to be turned down. But Blair has a honest and loyal personality that comes out in the interview and Jack hires him. He has had a lot of abuse in his life and does not expect much, but he is very good at what he does, and he finds his boss extremely attractive. Where most people see the imperfection of Jack's face Blair sees the sweet kind man inside.
Jack is not prepared for his efficient and sweet secretary. He finds more than a great employee if he is willing to take the chance.
I liked how this story is written from Blair's point of view. It allowed me to see deeper inside the character and really feel what Blair was feeling. I loved the character connection in this story too. I really loved this twist on a boss and secretary falling in love.
