(Mixed Messages Book 1)
By Lily Morton
Narrated by Joel Leslie
Is it really wrong to want to murder your boss?
Dylan has worked for Gabe for two years. Two long years of sarcastic comments. Two long years of insults, and having to redo the coffee pot four times in the mornings to meet his exacting standards.
Not surprisingly he has devoted a lot of time to increasingly inventive ways to murder Gabe. From stabbing him with a cake fork, to garrotting him with his expensive tie, Dylan has thought of everything.
However, a chance encounter opens his eyes to the attraction that has always lain between them, concealed by the layers of antipathy. There are only two problems – Gabe is still a bastard, and he makes wedding planners look like hardened pessimists.
But what happens when Dylan starts to see the real Gabe? What happens when he starts to fall in love with the warm, wary man that he sees glimpses of as the days pass?
Because Gabe is still the same commitment shy, cold man that he’s always been, or is he? Has Dylan had the same effect on Gabe, and has his solid gold rule of no commitment finally been broken? With his heart taken Dylan desperately needs to know, but will he get hurt trying to find the answers?
From the author of ‘The Summer of Us’ comes another scorchingly hot romantic comedy, showing what happens between two men when rules get broken.
This is the first book in the Mixed Messages series but it can be read as a standalone.

So good!! I loved Dylan and Gabe!
This was a great, funny, sassy, emotional story about how good things can happen if you break your rules!
Dylan and Gabe are both such dynamic characters with such depth. I loved the back and forth between them. Dylan is hilarious. I love how his injected humor and snark throws Gabe off. Joel’s narration of Dylan is hilarious. I love Joel’s narration in general but when humor is involved he nocks it out of the park!!
The story includes all the fun, sass and snark you’d expect from Lily and these characters work so well together. I loved the slow development of feelings and the subsequent fear Gabe has about these feelings. Lily took such care with these feelings and while frustrating at times and back and forth and eventual acceptance was just wonderful. All the feels. I look forward to reading the rest of the series, there are definitely some fantastic characters so learn more about!!
