When Jonathan Kechter agrees to a blind date with Cole Fenton, he expects nothing more than dinner and a one-night stand… but he gets more than he bargained for in Cole. Cole is arrogant, flamboyant, and definitely not Jon’s type. Still, when Cole suggests an arrangement of getting together for casual sex whenever they’re both in town, Jon readily agrees.
Their arrangement may be casual, but Jonathan soon learns that when it comes to Cole Fenton, nothing is easy. Between Cole’s fear of intimacy and his wandering lifestyle, Jonathan wonders if their relationship may be doomed from the start—but the more Cole pushes him away, the more determined Jon is to make it work.

I first read this absolutely delightful book back in the fall of 2011 and it was on my top ten list of favorite books for years. Now that I am on GoodReads, it is on my favorites and fuck yeah, 5+ stars shelves. I did a re-read to get ready for the sequel Fear, Hope, and Bread Pudding in early June 2013. It’s just as fabulous as I remember!
Seriously folks, this is a M/M romance no-brainer. If you are new to the M/M romance genre, you have to read this one. It’s a staple to the M/M romantic’s diet. If you are already a fan and haven’t read it yet, get with the program! It’s really that simple. Trust me.
