Kind, caring, and protective. Those are the three qualities I’m looking for when it comes to my dream man. In a city as big as Chicago, you wouldn’t think he would be that hard to find, right?


Sure, my boss found a super-sexy detective and my best friend fell madly in love with the most eligible bachelor around. But the only person I’ve met recently is a broody bad boy who saved me at a sketchy pub.

He’s grumpy, rude, and honestly, not that likeable at all. Hardly my “dream” guy.

So why can’t I stop thinking about him?


I don’t do friendships. I don’t do relationships either. The very last thing I’m looking for in life is to fall in love and live happily ever after.

So saving some rich guy from losing his wallet is the last thing I want to do on a Friday night. Especially when he looks like someone who just stepped off the cover of GQ.

Fate seems to have other ideas, though, and every time I turn around, he’s there.

A wicked heat simmers between us, threatening to ignite, and though I’ve been trained to put out the flames, I can’t help but think: What’s the worst that could happen if I let this desire burn out of control?


I haven't read a M/M book in a while so I grabbed this from the KU Library to try.

This starts with Ryan and his friend going to the sketchier side of town so his friend could meet up with his date for the evening, leaving Ryan to drink by himself. He's pestered by one of the bars regulars until Jameson comes to his rescue, whisking him out of there but leaving him on the sidewalk - alone. Fast forward a few days and Ryan's boss wants him to head down to the local fire station to take some shots of the crew and trucks and bumps into Jameson there. He's one of the firemen. They end up bumping into each other again when Jameson gets evicted and needs a place to stay - and Ryan is looking for a roommate. Fate seems determined to push these two together, they just need to figure things out themselves.

I did like this but I wasn't entirely invested in their relationship. I think Jameson is too busy pushing everyone away after the stuff he's suffered through in the past to even attempt to try a romantic connection to Ryan - though he does try for a little while. Ryan I liked from the start. Yeah, he may dress nicer than Jameson and be from the "right" side of the tracks but he just seemed more open, more willing to be there for Jameson and whatever he needed.

I knew going into this that it was going to be a duet so their story wouldn't finish with this one but I don't think I enjoyed it enough to find out what else happens with these two.
