Adam Lewis is a Hollywood agent in trouble. His business partner has finally been called to task for his shady business practices and Adam is trying to protect himself in the ensuing fallout. Seeking a lawyer, Adam meets with the handsome Jack Larsen and from the beginning finds that he feels like he can lay his very life in this strong man’s hands.
When Adam Met Jack is a delightful look into the lives of two supporting characters from previous G.A. Hauser works. Adam made an appearance in For Love and Money as a Hollywood agent and Jack is the frustrated best friend from Capital Games. G.A.Hauser has a talent for writing characters that capture our interest even when they are in a small side role. Other old friends make appearances in this story as well and as usual there were a few little inside jokes that tickle the fans of her work. While the main focus of the story was on Adam and Jack and their developing relationship, we are also given another viewpoint on the events that happened in Capital Games and For Love and Money; events that seemed so clear cut then, aren’t as sharply defined as they once seemed and I was once again reminded that old adage “history is written from the perspective of the victors”. Adam and Jack are perfect for each other, while neither is the man that the other always thought they wanted, they are what each other needed. I was really happy to see good things happening to Jack, I felt so sorry for him in the previous book and was amazed to find that a character I had previously thought was a bit of a sleaze, was in fact a kind, warm-hearted, caring person, It was probably this look into Adam’s psyche that I found most fascinating about When Adam Met Jack.
