Blurb: Despite what anyone says, Jordan Kane is not lonely. He’s not. Being alone is not the same as being lonely.
At least, that’s what he tells himself. But it’s hard to hold onto his more hermit-like habits when Avery O’Sullivan blows back into town. The sweet–if hapless–writer is hardly prepared for Belleville’s harsh winters, and Jordan can’t help inviting the other man into his home for the holidays.
Two strangers find happiness between a dozen cups of coffee and writer’s block in this sweet M/M short romance. A Palouse County Romance #1 featuring stories big and small from Eastern Washington.

Review: Jordan runs the local coffee shop in a small town. He has been alone since his partner left him seven years ago in the middle of renovation for the coffee shop. Avery was the son of the local sheriff and has not been back to the town since his mother divorced his father when he was young. After his father died, Avery was left everything, including a rundown house.
The two men get to know each other over Avery’s daily early morning trips to the coffee shop for his morning addiction. As each man slowly gets to know the other, their attraction grows. There is little angst or drama as the two fumble their way to a relationship.
Very nice read if looking for something on the sweet side of things.
