My Rating: 2 of 5 Stars
Jesse Gray can’t get more unlucky. His roommate left him and he gets kicked out when he can’t afford the rent. Next, the owner of the fast food joint where he works part-time suddenly tells him he no longer works there. Jesse still has a job as a PA on a movie set but the pay will never be enough to afford even the cheapest room in Hollywood. There’s only one place left to stay the night -- in the park.Trey Miller is the star on a TV series where Jesse works. They bump into each other one night while leaving the set, and Trey thinks Jesse is much too good-looking to only be a PA. When he learns of Jesse’s financial condition, he offers a place to stay at his house. Having no other options, Jesse reluctantly accepts the offer, but what’s the catch?

This was quite an interesting read. It was fast paced, it was a quick read, and gave me the feel of a short and light-read even if it is neither too short nor too light. 

A Home For Jesse is about Jesse Gray who finds himself in the dumps: homeless, a less than stellar job, no money, no clothes, no boyfriend. When Trey Miller rescues him, he has no choice, he needs a place to stay and some food in his stomach. Unfortunately, the bad luck follows him wherever he goes and life just basically sucks.

Trey had been eyeing this handsome PA/extra at the TV series. When he finds Jesse homeless and in need of some TLC, he offers his home and his dogs. Now all he needs to do is make sure Jesse does not up and run, look his way, and maybe gain a friend in return.

This was a really short read despite the 70 pages it boasts. The story does not really progress all that much beyond their developing trust for each other, I would not call this a romance either as there were no thunder, lightning and fireworks to announce the impending relationship. The story ends when the men are just getting to know each other and Jesse's luck is turning for the better. In short, this had a very, very, very hanging ending. Maybe there is a book two in the works?

Light as it was, it was a good read and was quite interesting enough to hold my attention for an hour.
