Opposites attract doesn't explain why the construction worker can't stop thinking about the flamboyant actor.
Instant attraction maybe a thing, but Tom is most definitely male, which isn't opposite enough for Ben, who'd always considered himself very straight.
Shaken by the news that two of his colleagues are married - to each other - Ben can't stop thinking about it.
Macho construction workers aren't gay. They just aren't. Ben knows he's being ridiculous, but he can't control his thoughts.
And he can't stop thinking about the cute guy he met in their home.
Ben considers himself liberal and broadminded but also straight. And he's not a kid, he's a grown man with a job, responsibilities, and an ex-wife. As a single dad, he shouldn't be obsessing over gay men.
But if he did fall in love with A MAN how would he tell his family, his friends, and his young son?
Working his way through casual hookups raises Tom's spirits after a long dark period of depression and grief. He is slowly getting over the heartache of his past and coming to accept that he'll never find a love like that again.
So, he doesn't expect to be swept away by a straight-acting, flirty scaffolder.
Tom has enough baggage of his own. Should he spend more time with Ben?
And Is it time for Tom to ditch the low-paid work, pick up the threads of his life, and resume his own professional acting career?
This standalone romance novel shares overlapping characters with Our Secret Wedding.
