Book Description

They had this thing. When neither was in a relationship, they… visited. With sex. And booze or the big game, and laughing together. But mostly sex. There was something easy and safe about going to bed with a man you trusted with your back during the day, trusted to save your life and get you back out of a burning building no matter what.

But what happens when Colton and Ry start to realize maybe they're more serious than they thought? How do they handle the next step—and Colt's angry ex?

Genre: gay romance

Length: approx. 15,000 words

Heat level: low


They continued to razz each other through the meal, feeling better with every burn, insult, and laugh.

They were still hungry after they finished eating their burgers, so Colt made them each a second burger with melted blue cheese on top, and while he did that, Ry walked down the street to the bakery on the corner and bought two chunks of cheesecake. This time when they finished eating, they were full.

And then they got their shit ready for tomorrow, and went to bed for a horizontal mamba. Or two. Or three.

Despite all their tough talk, they stayed gentle with each other in bed. Maybe even a little gentler than normal. Colt touched Rylan like he was breakable.

And maybe he sort of was. He'd pretty much come out and admitted—to himself and to Colt—that his feelings for Colt went a little deeper than he'd maybe wanted to think about before. And when he thought about it too closely, it scared the crap out of him.

Colt was right; it changed everything. What were they supposed to do with this knowledge, if it was real—if they wanted a real relationship, not just a makeshift, make-do-and-mend intermediate thing?

Fortunately, it was hard to think too much with Colt in his bed, warm and giving and utterly present.

Sleep came easily that night, with them wrapped around each other, holding on tight. The comforting scent of Colt's sweat soothed him even in his sleep, and he didn't wake up till the alarm rang.

4.0 out of 5 stars A sweet little romance with emotional moments July 5, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The plot is familiar but this little romance has its emotional moments. For a short the emotional connection between the two guys is handled well with the right amount of angst. I like how it ended even without the epilogue but the epilogue does of course give a sweet closure to our two fire fighters.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Smokin' Hot Romance! February 4, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
How could you possibly ask for more than to have your best friend be the person you work with every day, turn to when times get tough, depend on the be there without being asked, and be the person who seems to know you better than you know yourself? When that friend is also incredibly sexy and does things to your body that make your head spin? It's not difficult to understand that, after five years, the once clearly defined lines between lust and love can start to get a little blurry.

Their sex life is comfortably free of complications; they are there to meet each other's needs when both are single. Their friendship has always been strong. When Colton leaves his current relationship after receiving an unexpected ultimatum, Ry is there to help him pick up the pieces, and when Colton's ex has second thoughts about the break-up, he suddenly finds himself questioning what it is that he really want's from life. The realization that his feelings for Ry may run deeper than he ever dreamed is unexpected.

How difficult could it be to find out if the man who has always been there for Colton in the past would want to be with him forever?

Find out the answer in this fiery romance that starts out with two men who are "just friends" and transforms their solid relationship into one that's so hot it burns.

Another wonderfully written short story from the expert pen of Hollis Shiloh. It's sure to appeal to readers of the M/M romance genera who crave a little heat along with the sweet!
