Starting with Making It Fit, all the way through Making It Legal, love always wins in this gay romance collection.
Making It Fit
When my best friend on the force Federico was killed in the line of duty, I swore to him as he died in my arms, I would take care of his baby brother, Victor.
I never went back on my word.
Victor moved back to our hometown after college, and he needed a place to stay. The kid was going to live next door to a crack house in a bad part of town, but I knew his older brother would haunt me if I allowed that to happen, so I demanded he move into my spare bedroom.
When he showed up on my doorstep, his transformation from an awkward teenager to a striking young man floored me. Victor was everything I had ever wanted—smart, smoking hot, and innocent—but there was no way he could handle a rough around the edges cop like me.
I kept my paws to myself, until one day Victor told me he had never been with another man before. He wanted advice on how to get a boyfriend, and how to keep him.
That broke me.
I’d show Victor how to please a man, all right.
Making It Spark
Aaron had tormented me all through high school. He was the athlete who always had a girl on his arm, and another in the backseat of his convertible. I was the sensitive theater geek and knew I was different, while he was the jock determined to make my life a living hell. Years later, he put out a fire in my building and ignited one inside of me.
Of course, he was straight. Every man I fell for preferred skirts to me. But something was different about Aaron now. He wanted to be my friend, and straight guys normally didn’t hang out with me. So, I dragged him to a gay bar, hoping to scare him away. Instead, when a drunk guy got handsy with me, Aaron kissed me. Like, tongue in mouth full-on kissed me.
Straight guys didn’t kiss gay guys, right?
Making It Spark
Landon Smith has a problem. He’s socially awkward, prefers coding over cocktails, and occasionally wears mismatched socks. His life is full, working as an adjunct professor at the local college, and volunteering as a tutor for underprivileged youths. Then his worst nightmare moves in next door to him, a macho ex-marine who just won’t leave him alone. They have nothing in common until the brawny man begs Landon to tutor him. He agrees, but only after Angel promises to keep his paws to himself.
Angel Perez is the devil, or at least that’s what Landon thinks. But, there’s something about how he fills his skin-tight jeans that Landon can’t get out of his head. And to make matters worse, he’s feeling emotions he never has before. The domineering man is determined to claim Landon, who is terrified of giving in to his urges.
Making It Glitter
Blake Anderson will do anything to survive, even taking a seasonal gig as a Christmas elf at the local shopping mall. Embarrassing, yes, but if that’s what he must do to pay the rent, he’ll wear the skintight green hose and the silly wig.
At first it is almost unbearable, but then he’s reunited with his teenage crush, who’s having his own string of bad luck.
Eddie Garza is the last person you expect to don a Santa costume, but when his business is nearly destroyed, he only has two options, either start turning tricks for cash, or put on the red suit and ignore the screaming of tiny little tots.
What makes it worthwhile is working with his friend from years ago. Eddie hasn’t ever thought of Blake romantically, but now he wants to shove the snotty kids off his lap and replace them with the cute redhead. Will Santa find true love with his glittery elf?
Making It Legal
Diesel has a problem. He’s been a highly paid escort for years, but he’s nearing his fortieth birthday. In the world of prostitution, that’s when you hang up your jockstrap and find a real job. Unfortunately for him, he has no other skills to fall back on, and he’s spent most of his earnings living beyond his means. He wants to go legit, but when a wealthy man from Brazil makes him the offer of a lifetime, he decides to turn one last trick.
Santiago Bolsonaro moves to the United States in order to escape his arch-conservative political family in Brazil. The first few months are a dream come true, and when his visa is about to expire, he decides to do something extreme in order to stay in the states. He hires an attractive escort to marry him, so he can get his green card. At first it is a simple legal arrangement. But, like most business deals, it becomes complicated. Like, really, really complicated.
