Book Recommendation - Elements of Retrofit by NR Walker

The Book 

Generation versus generation, traditional versus contemporary, these men are about to learn a lesson in architecture and love. Can they prove that the old and new can be the perfect design? 
A successful New York architect, Thomas Elkin almost has it all. Coming out as gay and ending his marriage before his fortieth birthday, he needed to start living his life. Now, four years later, with his relationship with his son back on track, and after a few short-lived romances, this esteemed traditional draftsman thought he knew everything about architecture, about life.

Cooper Jones, twenty-two years old, is about to take the architect world by storm. Talented, professional, driven, and completely infuriating, Cooper is the definition of Generation Y.

Starting an internship working with Thomas, Cooper is about to knock Tom’s world off its axis. Tom can teach Cooper about the architecture industry, but Cooper is about to teach Tom what it means to live. |

Review 5/5 and recommended

Do you ever get put off a book by the title? I wasnt sure what I was expecting with this book, but Elements of Retrofit made me think it may be Steampunk or something... yes, I get that I am probably the only person to think that but it meant, even though I like Steampunk, that this book kept being put to one side. Of course I never thought to read the blurb even before I bought it... ROFL.

Then I started it, and hell, I read it straight through. I loved the romance, the snarky Cooper, and Thomas who I just wanted to hug so badly...

Obviously it is book 1 in what will ultimately be a series as this is *Thomas Elkin: Book 1* and I for one will be getting book 2 as soon as it's out.
