BLURB: Zeke Gulden is a ruthless Wall Street exec. His hard-edged, no-nonsense attitude has served him well in the cutthroat business world, but less so in his personal life. When he finds out his ex-boyfriend cheated on him with a coworker, Zeke can’t let go—not until he finds a way to get even. However, his meddlesome father has other ideas. The new hire at the family-owned bagel store is somewhat colorful, but his dad is sure he’s the perfect man for Zeke.

Benny Ruggieri is a fiercely proud New Yorker who dreams of making it big as a costume designer in the theater. In the meantime, he’s working two part-time jobs in the food biz. When his new boss sets him up with his successful son, Benny has zero expectations. If nothing else, he figures he can entertain himself by making the uptight businessman squirm. Instead, the two become unlikely friends with an inexplicable attraction they can’t ignore. Benny might be the one to help Zeke set aside his quest for revenge, if he’s willing to let go and forgive what he can’t forget… and give in to an unexpected kind of romance.
Excerpt

I watched their interaction, but in truth, Benny had my complete attention. I wished we were alone. I wanted to push him over that counter, pull his tight jeans over his ass, and bury myself inside him. I wanted to run my fingers down his back and hear those sexy noises he made the other night. I wanted—

“Whatcha thinking, Zeke?” His smile was slow. A lopsided upturn of his generous mouth that morphed into a wide, sunny grin.

I found myself returning the gesture with a somewhat lascivious twist. “I was thinking about the last time I saw you and how I loved fingering your ass. I can’t wait to do it again. How about you?”

Okay. That wasn’t what I’d rehearsed. I was supposed to be resetting expectations, not crudely attempting to finagle a redo of the other night.

“Uh.” Benny opened his mouth and then closed it like a fish out of water.

I chuckled softly and moved a little closer. It seemed silly to deny the obvious. I wanted him. Maybe I’d been thinking about this the wrong way. Why couldn’t we fool around? We didn’t have to pretend there was any chance of forever. We were too different to even entertain the possibility. However, we were grown men. A consensual arrangement of some sort might be a good idea, I mused.

“What are you doing tonight?”

“What?”

“You heard me.” I pointed toward my Dad, who was still engaged in conversation near the front of the store. “He’s gonna grill me for details about bowling and—”

“Are you going to tell him I kicked your ass?”

“Most definitely not. He won’t really want to know anything more than when I’m seeing you next. So….”

“So you’re asking me out for your dad’s sake? Or because you want to finger my—”

“Hey now! Keep it clean, mister. This is a family joint. Watch your fuckin’ language.”

“What?”

“You heard me.” I pointed toward my Dad, who was still engaged in conversation near the front of the store. “He’s gonna grill me for details about bowling and—”

“Are you going to tell him I kicked your ass?”

“Most definitely not. He won’t really want to know anything more than when I’m seeing you next. So….”

“So you’re asking me out for your dad’s sake? Or because you want to finger my—”

“Hey now! Keep it clean, mister. This is a family joint. Watch your fuckin’ language.”

Benny busted up laughing. “Oops. Sorry. I’m working tonight.”

“Oh. How about tomorrow night?”

“I’m busy, but we could always meet for coffee.”

“Huh?”

Whoa. There’s no way I was the only one feeling this incredible electric vibe. How did we go from nearly fucking in the backseat of my car to setting an innocent date to meet for coffee?
