Anxiety pulled at his chest. What in the hell was he thinking exactly when he agreed to not only stay on at the farm but transforming it into a viable and successful retail business? What did he know about what people wanted to buy when spending the weekend in the country? He hated the country, always had. Even as a child, he hated the constant rotation of allergies he suffered: hay fever, animal hair, leaf mold, ragweed; the list had been endless. But once he moved into the city, the constant pollution and smog seemed to be the solution to ridding him of all his childhood ailments, allowing him to actually breathe. Life was full of little ironies, and Ethan figured that this was one of them.

Gazing around the room, memories flooded him. Several of his mother’s watercolor paintings hung from the walls, brightening the musty room that needed a good airing out. He remembered when she had signed up for the class. Her excitement seemed to fill the entire house for a while, but like any mother with an overabundant workload, she had left her brushes behind when other things took precedence over painting. Only now did Ethan realize how much she had sacrificed for him, when it was too late to say thank you.

He sat on the edge of the bed, the sound of the running shower coming from the bathroom on the landing. He thought of Quinn, wet and soapy under the steady stream of warm water sluicing down his muscular body. He had grown from a cute teenager into an attractive and strong man. Ethan touched his fingertips to his lips, remembering the kiss they’d shared so long ago. It was warm, moist, and tender. It had also been his first kiss.

He shook his head—hard, attempting to clear his mind of the memory of that kiss. He was with Randall … kind of. Ethan was sure that his partner was going through a phase, and he intended to be there for him when Randall recovered from it. They had too much invested, emotionally and monetarily, to throw it all away. Randall would soon figure that out for himself and come back with a big bouquet of flowers and an even bigger apology—that, Ethan was sure of. They belonged together. It made sense. But until then, he planned to keep busy, and this was the place to do it.

While standing to open the window, he heard the shower shut off. Maybe a long hot shower was exactly what he needed, anything to wash away the anxiety of the last few months. Bending to feel the summer breeze against his face, Ethan closed his eyes and inhaled the sweet smell of honeysuckle.

“Shower’s all yours.”

Quinn’s baritone voice caused Ethan to knock his head against the windowsill. He spun, rubbing at the sore spot.

“I didn’t mean to scare you.”

Ethan blinked, focusing on Quinn’s tanned, sculpted chest with the perfect amount of chest hair, rivulets of water snaking down into his low-slung, terry towel. He felt dizzy, either from the half-naked body standing at his door or from the bang on his head, Ethan wasn’t sure which.

Treating Blake
By Alex Carreras

After a disastrous appearance on the hit reality TV show, Eye in the Sky, Justin Kilburn decided to open a bakery in his hometown of East Aurora, New York.

With all that behind him, he sunk his heart and soul into opening, Olivia’s, a bakery named after his mother who died of cancer when he was a boy.

Everything was going just as planned except for his escalating feelings—and libido—for Blake Williams, Jr., local hottie and Justin’s landlord. But Justin promised himself he would stay away from men, especially those who look like Blake.

Blake Williams, Jr. doesn’t intend to stay in East Aurora for too much longer. But before taking his rightful place at the company’s headquarters in New York City alongside his father, he has to prove he deserves the position first. With his numbers good and goals being met, Blake’s focus begins to blur due to the handsome baker from across the street. He was definitely not a part of Blake’s plan.

But like his tasty treats, Blake can’t resist taking a bite … then another … and then another.

Reader Caution: This story contains hot men and even hotter buns, some you can eat and some you just want to savor slowly. Consider this to be your only warning so don’t get burned!
