Blurb: After an unexpected kiss, a man finds himself with a dilemma…
Gregory Morris has a problem. He isn’t gay, but he’s attracted to one of his best friends and has no clue what to do about it. Gregory decides the best way is just to kiss him and let nature take its course. With that one kiss, Gregory finds himself wanting his friend even more. Now he just has to prove that he is serious.
Braden Charles notices his friend Gregory seems to be avoiding him and he has no clue what he’s done. When Gregory finally says he wants to talk, Braden is relieved to find out what is wrong, that is until Gregory kisses him. After the kiss, the idea that his friend wants him when he is not gay bothers Braden. He’s not going to be drawn in by a man who is only gay for him—it is myth and will only lead to heartbreak.
Gregory’s next action is something Braden never expected and he has to face the fact that Gregory is serious. Braden has a man who he can see in his life forever but does Gregory think it’s an experiment? Attraction builds in a slow burn that will last forever.

Review: This is book five in this series and they should be read in order. However they can be read alone also, it would just make it better to read book one first. Talia always gives me a wonderful book to read. There is always humor that can be found in them. Even when it is serious, you can always see the humor in it. I love the characters that she comes up with. They are people who you can fall in love with and want to see them get everything they deserve and desire.
Gregory has always dated women, never even wanted a man. That is till Braden came into his life. They work for the same men and it always made Gregory curious about certain things. However, the feelings he has for Braden is getting stronger, he is just not sure how to tell Braden that he has feelings for him. That it is not just a phase or curious about being gay. The problem was he just didn’t know how to tell him. So he did something better, he kissed him.
At first Braden avoids him, but Gregory shows him that he wants a life with him. Now all he has to do is get Braden to agree. To understand that what he is feeling is just for him and that it is strong. I did feel bad when Gregory told his father, but in the end his father shows him that it doesn’t matter who you love, just that you love them deeply.
I am amazed with this story and I hope there are many more to come after this one. I would recommend reading this because it will show you that love proves to be right no matter who you are with. That with love all things can be won. It caught my attention from the start and kept it all the way to the end.
