Blurb: Two men. One roof. Who knew togetherness could be so dangerously tempting?
Korbin is looking for a renter to help make ends meet. Not quite ready to make the offered room a squatter’s paradise with a public ad, he advertises by word of mouth. Turns out he’s doing it at just the right time.
Cage is relocating for a new job and needs a no-hassle place to live. He’s wary about sharing space with a total stranger, but the opportunity to be able to start at his new job without this stress is too good to pass up.
Except one of them is hiding a secret identity and his past has taught him to not talk about it. Friendship brings the men closer, but will the secrets they both carry keep them from exploring a deeper attraction between them?
Review: Korbin is wary of letting just anyone rent his room so after careful consideration he allows Cage to have the room. Cage has just relocated for his new job and is happy with his new landlord; he just wishes that Korbin wasn’t so jumpy.
This is a sweet little short of two men lusting after each other while each thinking the other is straight. Korbin is wary of letting anyone know his secret’s after the last person he confided in lashed out at him but when Cage reads a little of what he has written he is surprised by his reaction. Cage is a cop (constable?) and has his own heartache from the past, when all their secrets are revealed they come together and it’s the start of something sweet.
Okay I will hold my hands up and say that I was thrown at first with what Cage did for a living and what country this was set in, why? You ask, well because Korbin referred to the Constable’s office and to be honest with you I never knew that in some U.S. States they have constables, I know the U.K. and Australia do but not America (I learn something new every day). So once I got that sorted out I really enjoyed this story as they were both wary about opening up to each other but once everything was out in the open they blossomed.
So with this one I will recommend this to those who want something short and sweet, with a touch of angst, a touch of heartache, a hot couple, erotic passion and a happy ending.
