When twenty-two-year-old Emilio Sanchez sees handsome Spencer Derdinger walking by his construction site, Emilio makes it his goal to seduce the shy professor. Getting Spencer into bed isn’t difficult, but Emilio soon learns that earning the trust of a man deeply hurt will take time and patience. With a prize like brilliant, sweet Spencer on the line, Emilio decides he is strong enough to face the challenge.
Spencer is surprised when he’s approached by the gorgeous construction worker he’s admired from the safety of his office window. Acting spontaneously for the first time in his thirty-eight years, Spencer takes Emilio home. When the casual hookup turns into the potential for love, Spencer realizes that if he wants to build a life with Emilio, he’ll need to be strong enough to slay his personal demons and learn to trust again.
OMH I love, love, love Emilio! But seriously what's not to love about the hunky construction worker...he's got a hot bod, he can fix things around the house and the way that he treats Spencer is the way everyone wants to be treated in a relationship.
Spencer is wounded...I don't think there is a better word to describe him. He is fully confidant in his job and place in life but when it comes to love and sex he has been hurt and can't trust. I loved how he is completely flabbergasted by Emilio's attraction to him and the way that Emilio just kind of steamrolls into his life.
Watching these two men come together and work to find a way to trust and love was incredibly beautiful and completely fed my romantic soul.
Beautiful, romantic and wonderfully written! This author excels at writing compelling characters that you want to know in real life.
