Out of the Frying Pan
One night doesn't seem to be enough…
Dean has finally found a workplace where he's welcomed with open arms. Starting fresh in a new city was the only downside, and he refused to become a burden to his new colleagues by accepting too many dinner invites.
Oliver's restaurant is finally making a profit, and his loss of social life is no concern for him. Anyway, an overweight workaholic is hardly considered a catch from what he's been told. But when the new firefighter sends heated glances his way, he can't help but react. One night won't hurt.
But one night becomes more, and Oliver and Dean become inseparable. Until Oliver's restaurant is burnt down.
Their relationship is tested to the limits during the investigation, but Oliver took a chance with Dean and he refuses to take it back.
This is an MM romance, featuring a firefighter who wants to believe in love, a chef who learns that a work/life balance is essential, and the reminder that when someone finds "the one," it doesn't matter whether it was only supposed to be one night. Love is love.
