Blurb: Outrageously gay Hudson Smith owns Hudson’s Clothing Store at Two Waters Beach. He loves his job but he wishes he had a partner to love. Elliott Greene is shy and unassertive. He’s here at the beach for a week’s vacation in mid-winter because everyone else at work wanted the warm weather for their vacation time.
Elliott is cold and Hudson invites him into the store to warm up. They drink tea and talk, getting to know each other. Elliott ends up remaining in the store with Hudson all day long as they begin to get to know each other and share their stories.
Hudson is very attracted to his shy, blushing guest, and is proud when Elliott proves there’s a smart brain and a gentle humor hidden behind the bland façade. Meanwhile Elliott determines to follow his Grandpop’s advice and stop being too nice to everyone and instead to ask for what he wants.

Review: This is a very cute and hot little story. It is told in such a way that you get a lot of story in a small dynamic story. The only problem I have is that they meet and two days later they are in love. Talking about moving in and buying a business. It goes way to fast and it just doesn’t give you a lot of plot. It doesn’t take away from the story itself though. I truly enjoyed it and can’t wait to read the next story.
Hudson owned a clothing store and was one of those types that you instantly love. He loves to help others out and has a great idea going in his head most of the time. When he sees a cute man standing outside the shop cold, he brings him inside. Things heat up pretty fast for these two men. However Elliott is a bit of a timid young man. He doesn’t really have an assertive bone in his body but his brain is top notched. He helps Hudson out when needed and is falling in love rather quickly.
I don’t know what to actually say without giving the story away. I did enjoy it but it is missing something to make it the perfect story. I would have loved for it to be expanded and give the guys a little bit of time before things heat up. It does leave you hanging at the end. So you never really find out certain things. Like I said it is a cute little story that will get your heart beating fast and your breath catching.
I liked it and look forward to reading the next story.
