Overview

Todd Burton has had enough of small-town Buckman. His abusive stepfather calls him a fag; his friend Austin makes him realize he may be gay, but Todd doesn’t want to admit his stepfather is right; and he dreams of being a chef. Three good reasons to flee his hometown and pursue greener pastures. But when Todd reaches the big city, his luck runs dry. Soon he can’t pay his rent and gets evicted. In the middle of a snowstorm.

Gabe Richards is a wealthy businessman with enough wounds of his own to make him afraid of ever being intimate again. But when he sees Todd outside his building, freezing to death, he takes pity on him and takes him in from the cold.

To their mutual surprise, Todd and Gabe find themselves drawn to each other. “One night” turns into a week. Maybe letting a man in from the cold can melt the ice around Gabe’s heart—and maybe getting evicted will turn Todd’s luck around.

    Just Right

    Great read. Just the right amount of steam and romance. These types of novels are rare. The attraction and romance build.

    If you have ever walked by someone in need and thought, "I really want to help that person," you will totally understand Gabe.

    He's been helped, so he wants to help someone else.

    Todd needs help. His dreams have been crushed, his life feels like it is falling apart, and he's stuck outside in a blizzard.

    Isn't it amazing what an open door, a sandwich, a cup of coffee, and a little empathy can start.

    These two characters need each other.

    Step by step, Todd and Gabriel are able to find their way to each other. They grow together, learn each other's pasts, help to heal old hurts, and finally--finally--build their home together.

    The characters are rich and real. They compliment each other so well.

    As a secondary character, Peter is absolutely amazing. He's funny, honest, lighthearted, and just a little bit sneaky. I beyond fell in love with him.

    This book is on my favorites list. Without a doubt, it's worth the read!

    Great read

    An excellent read. Very entertaining, unique characters and some hot sex mixed in to an intetesting story.

    Bianca, from "Bianca's plan" makes a brief appearance. Both stories are fun and can definitely be read as stand alones.

    An outstanding read and B. G. Thomas is now one of my favorite authors. As the other reviewers have said I couldn't stop reading the novel and fell in love with both of the main characters. The characters are well developed and a strong storyline led to a thoroughly enjoyable read. It is one that I will reread every few months like I do with Harper Fox's and J L Langley's Englor series. Thank you B. G. Thomas and I look forward to additional novels in the future.
