Be Warned: m/m sex
Aspiring chef, Taylor Gershwin, needs a new place to live and someone in his friend’s apartment building is advertising for a roommate.
It sounds perfect. He’d be close to his best friend and it’s not too far from his job as a short order cook and the chef school he attends. Sure the guy he’d be roommates with, Mike Hanovan, is something of a Neanderthal. A big brawny guy with a snake tattoo who also happens to be a Vice Cop…and hot as hell.
Tim Olfander escapes his busy, hectic life in LA at his ten-year high school reunion in the city he left behind years ago, Lincoln Hill. There, at the resort the reunion has booked, his gaze falls almost instantly on the sexy, pretty guy behind the check-in counter. He chats up the guy only to learn he is the assistant manager, Brandon Collins.
Tim instantly sets in motion his plan to spend the week at the resort with Brandon's sweet body under his. He has no clue Brandon knows him from their high school days.
Back then, Brandon was a shy, closeted nerd who had a big crush on Tim, following him around at school. Now it seems fate has thrown Brandon's former crush at him in the form of the now-hotter-than-ever Tim, who also seems to have sex with Brandon on the brain. Brandon gives in to his baser needs--not to mention his old fantasies--for a week-long smoldering affair with the crush he never dreamed he'd revisit.

Sean doesn’t believe Archie really wants the friends with benefits arrangement he proposes, but Archie has vowed to go elsewhere if Sean won’t accommodate him. Sean can’t let someone else have Archie, so he gives in to the cute twink. Wild, animalistic sex may just be hiding love.
