Reeling from a recent breakup with a boyfriend who said he’s ‘boring’, Benedict ‘Ben’ Lozier got a second jolt when he received word that the father who abandoned him and his mother when he was a baby left him half ownership in a gay bar.
Not expecting much Ben’s fears are justified when he gets his first look at the Square Peg. Everything about the place screams for improvements or at least a major cleaning session. The only real positive is the friendly staff which is balanced by the crusty Brit who owns the other half of the bar. Calling Shane Brant surly is the kindest word Ben can come up with.
Butting heads over making changes to the ramshackle bar is the least of Ben and Shane’s issues – their sexual chemistry is explosive and mind blowing. With nothing in common except the times they light up the sheets it’s a constant uphill battle to agree on anything where the bar is concerned. Trying to mesh their wants and needs will prove either blissful or combustible.
Sensual detonation begins when Ben and Shane meet for the first time in The Square Peg and it only keeps getting hotter as time go on. Unlikely lovers, the characters explore new depths in their personalities and there’s a role reversal in bed that gives the plotline an interesting twist. A hothead and an accountant make for strange bedfellows to say the least, yet it definitely works here and their sexual activity gets more erotic with each encounter. The Square Peg is addictive enjoyment.
