The Intern
(A standalone)

by: Serena Akeroyd

Review Rating:



The Intern is a story that is going to WOW you in every possible way! It’s hot, it’s touching, it’s emotional, it touches very closed door issues, and yet at the very core of this story it is just two men trying to figure out this emotion called love. The Intern is powerful.

Micah is catnip. A total snack. He’s caring, he’s sweet, he’s hard working, there really isn’t anything you can find wrong with this young intern. He may not have been out of the closet for long, but he knows who he is and what he wants to do in life. When he meets Devlin in the dark and has no idea he’s the head of the company he’s interning for, he certainly would like more, but has no idea his entire world will change after the first encounter.

Devlin is a known womanizer, but the fact that he’s bi isn’t a known fact. When he meets Micah he’s not only enraptured by the man, he’s literally tongue-tied for the first time in his life. Devlin runs a successful business on top of being a Viscount, Devlin has never found himself at a loss for words, but around Devlin he’s speechless. Devlin finds his mind whirling when he’s with Micah and he can’t stop thinking about him when he’s not with him. He’s in new territory, changing all the rules and he doesn’t know what to do about it.

I think the dynamic between these two is fascinating. The older businessman being enraptured by the younger intern. A man who shouldn’t know who he is at his young age, but has already had quite a few struggles. Where as Devlin has had a longer life, but he’s hidden behind his wealth, his title, and fear of just living. Finding your partner in life is always about this compromise of checks and balances or strengths and weaknesses.

Neither of these men have ever been in love before and the way they not only figure out their emotions together is beautiful, but how they work together to get through the struggles they come upon is so powerful. Nothing was brushed under the rug and everything was tied up by the end which I greatly appreciated as a reader. Devlin and Micah are the perfect balance to one another and that made the book very enjoyable to read.

This was not only a wonderful, and well written, romance story, it was an excellent MM romance to boot!


The Intern, an all-new contemporary MM standalone romance from Serena Akeroyd, is coming December 15th!


Sex comes with a price tag.

One I’m quite willing to pay.

In fact, I prefer it.

It’s easier that way, and in my life, I prefer ease. Prefer for most things to be transactional.

So when the intern disrupts my day, I’m not happy about it. I have a dark and dirty little secret he knows about. One that could destroy my reputation in a world where reputation is everything.

That makes him dangerous.

He could ruin me professionally, wreck my life, but the touch of his mouth to mine, the feel of him in my arms—they’re all I can think about.

I’m intoxicated.

Drunk on him, when I’ve always been sober.


I’m gay.

The freedom in admitting that is intoxicating. Enough to make me feel drunk with the relief of finally being myself.

But what feels better?


He’s my boss. He holds my future in his hands in more ways than he knows, but he isn’t as free as I am. Doesn’t have the same freedom I do to own up to what he is.

Because of that, I know I’m losing him.

I can feel us becoming DOA.

But is he worth fighting for when he won’t admit what I am to him? What we mean to one another?

I guess you’ll have to read on to find out…

THE INTERN is a standalone contemporary MM romance, with an easter egg for fans of Serena Akeroyd’s novels.
