Chris Dobbs is used to getting what he wants, and what he wants now is his boss. Everything about the dangerously handsome enigmatic older man drives him to his knees in more ways than one, ways Chris is realizing he’s always craved.
Giving Jay-Cee his body is as simple as breathing, but when Chris smashes through all of Jay-Cee’s hard earned control, he learns Jay-Cee demands more than just his obedience. He wants things Chris can’t give him - his heart, his soul, and his trust.
Jay-Cee offered his brilliant young protégé everything. In return, Chris took only the pieces he wanted and rejected the rest, leaving Jay-Cee reeling.
But the deep connection between them isn’t easily severed, and it promises to heal them both of the scars of their pasts. If they are to build a sanctuary from the rubble of their broken hearts, they’re going to have to risk everything.
First comes love, then comes marriage. Assuming you survive the wedding.
So maybe “Do you want to marry me or not, pendejo?” wasn’t the world’s most romantic proposal, but Mikey had meant every word of it. Besides, Benny Quintaña had been making Mikey crazy since they were twelve-years-old. Mikey was used to it.
So why did planning this wedding feel like facing a firing squad?
When Benny had asked Mikey to marry him, Mikey’s answer had been “I’m going to kill you.”
“Is that a yes?” Benny had asked. He liked to be clear on things.
“Yeah, for real, even though you’re an idiot,” Mikey had answered. That sounded like true love to Benny.
So why does Benny have the feeling Mikey has one foot out the door?
What Dmitri Greenman wants is out - out of debt, out of his rundown farmhouse, and out of Red Deer, Colorado. Salvation beckons in the form of a job opportunity in California.
What newly-discharged army veteran Troy Johnson wants is simply to lay down - lay down his weapon, lay down some roots, and lay down the memories that haunt him. Red Deer sounds like the perfect place to do it.
Sparks fly when their paths cross one hot Fourth of July weekend, and suddenly they find that what they need is each other.
But the memories Troy is running from are hot on his heels and, whether Troy wants it or not, Dmitri is determined to save him from the demons he hadn’t even realized he was fighting.
Troy and Dmitri have worked everything out - well, almost everything. Except for the part where Troy's family doesn't know Dmitri exists.
Troy's been out of the Army for almost a year, and except for a few short weeks, hasn't been back to West Virginia at all.
Now Christmas is coming, and his mother can't be put off any longer, not unless Troy wants to break her heart.
But Troy's biggest fear is that going home, new boyfriend and service dog in tow, is going to break his Momma's heart just as much.

When the smoking hot masked man he hooks up with in the bathroom of a club turns out to be his ex-best friend Mikey, Benny's world explodes. When he meets Mikey's four-year-old daughter and realizes he loves her as much as he still loves Mikey, Benny realizes he’s screwed in more ways than one.
