Matthew Price travels across the country to join his twin sister in Brooklyn. As an openly gay man who appreciates casual flings, the last thing he expects is to meet the man of his dreams.

Benjamin Stokes has always considered himself straight. When he hires Matthew to work at his garage and finds himself captivated, his sexuality comes into question.

From the moment they meet, their sexual desires grow fierce. Will they discover a deeper connection than just the physical? Can theirs be a love story that will last forever?

This book was such an amazing feel good book. I have to be completely honest and say that I am surprised that I liked it as much as I did. This is not a long novel and is what I would consider a short story so I figured it would fall into the category that most short stories that I would describe as Gay For You in…, mostly about sex, but no real story behind it. That is definitely not the case with this book. Now don’t get me wrong, this book was steamy hot. Lot’s of sexy times between the Matt and Ben but there was an incredibly well written and thoroughly interesting storyline in this book also. That is what made this book so much more and so much more interesting.

Ben and Matt both just blew me away with how they both easily connected with one another. Ben never having been attracted to another man really impress me with him excepting this about himself and not letting it hold him back or being ashamed of it in any way. That made me not only like him even more but it made me respect him also.

Matt captured my heart from the start. The way he loves his twin sister and respects her has me from the beginning but Matt knowing that Ben was straight and taking it in stride that Ben wanted to “experiment with him” at first to only realize very quickly that Ben wanted more with him almost immediately made me respect Matt. Matt never questioned him about accepting that he wanted to be with Matt instead of just friends with benefits or something. Instead Matt just went with it and even when Jasmine (Ben’s ex) and said she was pregnant with Ben’s baby Matt was willing to accept it and stick with Ben no questions asked.

Or at least he was until he caught Ben and Jasmine in bed together red handed and then all bets were off.

This book was really an amazing read and even more so since it was a short story and it had so much depth to the story itself. I truly believe that Laura Andrews wrote an exceptional story!! I look forward to more of Laura’s stories in the future.

Hello, I am an avid reader of male/male books. I do not have a favorite genre when it comes to male/male books because I love all of them from romance, dark reads, paranormal, shifter, threesome, whatever I see that catches my eye at the time.

I read books about rock stars, CEOs, military, cops, and just the original plain old good boy types of books.

Basically when it comes to a book, I read whatever I am in the mood for at the time. So my tastes varies from day to day and sometimes even hour to hour.

Please comment! We'd love to hear from you.
