(Part of the Something Like… series)

While working security for a popular prime time television show, reservist Jared Connors meets guest star Brandon Culpepper. They are immediately drawn to each other, quickly discovering they are exactly what the other needs in a friend and a lover.

Even though Brandon is in town for only the duration of his guest-starring role, the men agree to have a short-term affair. When the filming is finished, however, it’s harder to let go than either man expected, but Brandon has to leave for another role. Their resolve for their relationship to end is soon tested when each realizes their emotions are more involved than they originally thought.

But figuring out a way for their very different lives to fit together seems an impossible task. Can they trust each other enough to find a long-term solution?


How utterly refreshing this was! Brandon and Jared actually talk to one another: being open, honest, and vulnerable, yet strong. I absolutely loved their relationship.

“I always want this to be the place you run. The place you come home to.” I took a deep breath, then looked down to find him already staring at me. I tried for a smile, but I’d never said the words to someone I wasn’t related to. But fear was not a reason not to do something. Especially when it was the right thing. “I love you, Brandon. You’re mine. I don’t want that to end.”

If I had any complaint it’s that I would have liked to have gotten to spend more time with them, and with their families.

This is a sweet, quick read with some nice heat and no angst.

Highly recommended!

I am an unapologetic book addict/lover. I’m happiest when reading and I spend most of my time with my Kindle, which is never far from my hand.
I love to be told a good story! I mostly read fiction: Romance, Erotica, Young Adult, New Adult, Paranormal (shifters? Yes, please!), a little BDSM when I’m in the mood, and I love a good ménage story. I DEFINITELY PREFER A HFN/HEA!

My biggest no-no’s are cheating, miscommunication / misunderstanding plots, unnecessary angst, and cliffhangers.

A sampling of my “Favorite M/M” stories:
