For Love and Money by G.A. Hauser is the sequel to her earlier book The Physician and the Actor.
Dr. Jason Phillips has never gotten over his feelings for his lover Ewan Gallagher. One year ago, Jason and Ewan each had to make a decision about where their lives would lead them. Unfortunately, their decisions lead them into completely opposite directions. Ewan’s lead him to fame and fortune in Los Angeles as an actor and Jason’s lead him to his family fortune and married to a woman that he can’t stand. Now one year later, Jason is realizing that maybe his decision wasn’t the correct one. Ewan is coming to London for a film opening and Jason hopes to at least get a glimpse of him. It looks like Ewan has moved on while Jason feels that he has nothing to offer someone way above him in the world. Ewan appears to have it all, but in reality fame isn’t all that it seems. Ewan has everything he thought he wanted, but all that he wants now is to be back home in Britain, with Jason. Fate sends Jason to London during Ewan’s visit, but will Jason and Ewan find each other in the mad rush of the film opening or will they be forever apart?
Ms. Hauser has created a phenomenal story about how everyone has to make decisions in their lives and how sometimes you can regret the path you choose. Jason and Ewan are two very normal men who chose their directions in life, one fame while the other chose money, but both realized that the most important thing was the one they left behind. I loved how even after all their mistakes, Ewan and Jason still believed in each other and fought for their love. The love scenes between Ewan and Jason were fun and poignant at the same time. I couldn’t put the book down until I found out Jason and Ewan’s fate. Thanks to Ms. Hauser for the perfect sequel to her earlier book.
