Title: His Premier
Series: Sizzling Miami #6
Author: Jessie G
Genre: M/M Romance
Released: 20 September 2016
Born into wealth and privilege, Colin Sinclair was raised on the knowledge that money could buy anything and everyone had a price. Trouble was no trouble at all, not when the money was there to sweep it under the rug. But those lessons, learned at the knee of his father, were going to be challenged in a way that would change Colin forever.
In middle class suburbia, Arnaud Dechene learned the value of hard work, focus, and dedication to a dream. He was well on his way to achieving it, the role of Premier, when he catches Colin’s eye. Rich snobs didn’t usually do it for him, but there was something about Colin that made him impossible to resist.
Despite being opposites in every way, falling into a relationship was surprisingly—and deceptively—easy, but Arnaud never lost sight of his dream and Colin had trouble accepting that he was second place to anything. When a stupid argument leads to a reckless act, the repercussions leave Arnaud fighting for his life and Colin paying with his own.
With a little meddling from an aging schemer and intentions that are more well-meaning than realistic, their paths will cross again. However, Colin and Arnaud aren’t the same men who loved with abandon. They are older and wiser, with a history that might be too big to overcome.
Fans of the series know revenge is a double-edged sword, forgiveness doesn't always come easy, and forgetting is damn near impossible. But love...well, that may just conquer all.
His Premier is the sixth book in the Sizzling Miami series. It is not necessary to read the other books in the series for this one but new readers may get lost with who the other men are who make cameo appearances. Even I still struggle trying to remember who is who and who is with who in this series when first reading a new book in the series, but then it all comes rushing back at me. This time though I struggled to remember Colin as he is a little known character so here was my chance to find out who this enigma of a character is. It was also great this was a second chance romance. My favourite!
Colin and Arnaud were young lovers. From the moment they meet eyes after Arnaud had delivered a captivating dance performance, they both knew this was special. However as all good love stories go, the excitement of young love can become entangled with real life getting in the way and throwing them a huge curveball.
Arnaud was a dancer and his dream was to see the World and become a recognised name in the art of dance. Colin was from a staunch business family, well known in society but his devotion and support to Arnaud and his dream was undisputable. That is until the stress of separation for Arnaud to appear at various places across the states took its toll. On that fateful night when everything goes to hell, would there be any way that they could come back from this?
This was told in a flashback from the beginning so it was easy to keep the storyline fresh in my mind on what happened a decade back to what was happening now. The backstory for these two and the devastation that took place wasn’t as drama filled as the other men’s story in the series but an impact that happens all too frequently in real life. The pieces that were missing for me though were the separation years and why Arnaud would not try what he eventually did before a decade had passed. Yes I knew about the contact with the lawyer but it just seemed a little too late for me or maybe I missed something.
However I loved the connection between the two and the re-establishment of their love was not hashed out with too much backwards and forwards going on. The chemistry was recognisable which was cleverly done as there was not much on page between the sheets action until late in the book. For me to not realise that until I had finished just encapsulates what an engaging read it was.
Overall this was a great addition to the series and was good to catch up with all the men from previous books (although I did have to keep pausing to remember them – apart from Bull and Red who have always been my favourites but don’t tell the others!)
I would definitely recommend this series and this would be a good one for the new reader to dive in to see if it was for them. I think it would be! Four and a half stars.

Like many readers, the dream of being a writer has been with me a long time. After three decades of trying, I'd begun to doubt. Thanks to social media, I followed my favorite authors hoping to glean some words of wisdom as I pounded out half-formed ideas with alarming regularity. Two repetitive themes emerged: To be a great writer you must read a lot and your butt must be in the chair every day like it's a job. The more you write, the easier it will be to write and the better you will be at writing. I took that advice to heart and write every day. With three series in the works and counting, it's been amazing to have made this dream my reality.
I am a firm believer in marriage equality, love at first sight, power dynamics and happily ever after. I'm a lover of strong secondary characters and series filled with families, biological or chosen. All are themes you'll find throughout my books.
