When sexy, kilt-wearing astronomy professor Greg MacIntyre moves in next door, Blake Theriot knows he's in trouble. Blake is a research librarian, and he likes things orderly and controlled. But in his secret fantasies, he craves a big, powerful man like Greg to stir up his life.
Every time Blake tries to talk to his erudite neighbor, his brain shuts down and his vocabulary is reduced to one-word utterances, but when Blake's niece challenges him to invite Greg to dinner, he does. A few shots of after-dinner whiskey loosen Blake's inhibitions, and the two men share a hot kiss and the promise of more. Can Blake relax enough to give himself a chance with Greg, or will his fear of letting go ruin his hopes for love?
Blake lives a nice quite life. He goes to work, helps his sister take care of his niece, and loves to cook and read. Then sexy astronomer Greg moves in next door and things are fine until Blake sees him in his kilt. DEAR GOD A KILT! Then he becomes a shy stuttering fool who can't complete a sentence.
Thankfully Blake has his sister Renee and niece Haley, who have decided that Blake has been alone long enough and they are going to help him.
Greg is drawn to Blake in spite of the stuttering and tripping but knows he has to take things slow and ease Blake into a relationship. But as soon as he gets the chance Greg is going to take it and Blake won't know what hit him.
This was such a fun, sexy read. I fell completely in love with Blake and Greg. This is a novella that reads much longer because of the writing and development of the characters. Not just the MC's but secondary characters as well. I for one couldn't wait for the next book in this series.
If you want a quick read about smart sexy men, and oh yeah one of them just happens to like to wear kilts then Astronomical needs to be in your library!
