Logan Moore is finally ready to come out of the closet. His days of playing
football are far behind him, he has graduated from the Culinary Institute of
America (CIA), and his bakery Moore Delicious is finally in the black. Although
he spends more time talking to his cats than he does people, he technically
has time for a social life now that he has hired two new employees. In short,
Logan is completely out of excuses to stay in the closet, where it is warm and
cozy and he never has to worry about how to dress, what to say, or who is
watching. So he turns to his older brother’s friend for guidance. And if that
friend just happens to be his long-time crush and if one thing might lead to
another… well, that would just be icing on the cake.
Chance Blevins is a math geek through-and- through, who is more than happy
to spend his nights curled up with his dog Luna. With a few toxic relationships
in his past, Chance contents himself with friends-with- benefits and fantasies
involving his best friend’s very straight soon-to- be brother-in- law, Logan.
Because of a verbal slip the day they met and a teasingly-demanded vow of
secrecy, he believes that Logan actually works for the C.I.A., making him even
farther out of his league. When Logan comes to him for help with what he can
only assume is a cover identity, he is more than happy to oblige.
The spy-confusion is soon cleared up (with much embarrassment by all
involved) and the two men are ecstatic to discover their feelings are mutual,
but several hurdles stand between them and Happily-Ever- After. Logan is still
terrified of being out, Chance is convinced that theirs could only ever be a
“starter relationship” for Logan, and a stalker is lashing out at Chance.
Xander Griffith was mesmerized by Julian the moment he laid eyes on him in
a club; he's gorgeous, brilliant, and unabashedly himself. But when he
discovers Julian is his good friend's, off-limits, baby brother, he promptly drops
Julian off at his parents' house with a promise to call. Unfortunately, his life
took a left-hand turn that night, and Xander was unable to keep that promise.
When they meet again months later, they can't be in the same room without
bickering like small children, and both men wonder whether the person they'd
fallen for that night was an illusion.
Julian Moore is at loose ends after getting his Master's: he can't start his
government cybersecurity job until he gets high-level clearance, his boyfriend
and best friend are far away, and even his dojo closed down. All the sparkly,
snarky white-hat hacker does these days is read M/M romance novels and
hang out with his brothers' friends. Of course, that means bumping into that
over-privileged, condescending jerk, Xander, at every freaking turn; the man
would be completely insufferable if it wasn't for his sweet, hat-loving dog,
When Xander discovers Julian is deeply depressed, his protective instincts
kick in and he puts together a plan to help his friend's brother fight his way
through the murky gloom. The first step? Move the brat into his condo! It
seems like the perfect solution: he certainly has plenty of room, it gets Julian
out of his parents' house, his boxer is head-over- paws in love with Julian, and
someone has to keep their friend's pug from destroying all of Xander's left
From the day Julian moves in, his and Xander's lives fit seamlessly together
and both men soon realize their initial attraction may have been stronger, and
deeper, than they thought.
“Our family will always have room for a few more Moores.”
The Moore family is growing exponentially this year! All three brothers are
enjoying their Happily-Ever- Afters. Julian and Xander only have four weeks to
plan their dream wedding and are waiting impatiently to welcome two
homeless teens into their family. Amidst all the merriment, Chance discovers
that he has siblings, and they need his help. He’s forced to confront his past,
but he won’t have to face it alone.
