Book Blurb

Jacob Stine, one of the owners of the town’s bakery, has wanted Race Carroway since the moment they first met. Despite the obvious tension between them, he’d always assumed that the hunky mechanic would never be interested in him. Jacob had resigned himself to admiring Race from a distance until the day he’s forced to call him for help.

When the encounter turns steamy and then abruptly ends, Jacob is torn between hurt and confusion. He has to make the decision between finally moving on and trusting Race with one more chance. Will the baker have what it takes to get his man?

Book Review

Sweet, hot, and full of longing, this is the story of Jacob, the baker, who has a serious crush on Race, the mechanic who opened up shop across from the bakery. Both work hard at their jobs and, as it turns out, both are very interested in doing more than ogle each other through their respective shop windows.

Jacob cannot believe that the hot mechanic would be interested in him. The man is always distant, too good-looking to be true, and hasn’t indicated he's interested at all. Jacob has tons of fantasies about him, but lacks the courage to do something about them and approach the man. And when they do finally have a private encounter when Jacob's car breaks down and Race comes to rescue him? The man up and runs!

Race is a tightly wound guy, and while we don’t get to see the story from his point of view, it becomes pretty clear he is a man of action. Only, he also wants to romance Jacob, he just doesn’t know how. With social graces not exactly his strength, he still manages to tie Jacob into knots of desire and anticipation.

When these guys finally do get together they are passionate, hot, and just tender enough to reassure each other that they want more than a one-time encounter. If you like stories about hot guys falling for each other without too many words, if you enjoy reading about men who like to get physical, and if you’re looking for a sweet, sexy read, you will probably like this short story.
