When layoffs hit Jim LaRue’s company, his first concern isn’t for his own job, it’s for his friend and coworker, Tommy Graves. Tommy’s going through a bitter divorce, and he’s closing on a new home. Losing his job would mean losing the house—and the fresh start he desperately needs. Jim can’t let that happen to the man he’s secretly in love with, so he proposes a swap: his job for Tommy’s.
Now out of work, Jim reluctantly agrees to help Tommy remodel. He needs the income, but he can’t stand being a charity case—especially not when things between them start heading in a direction he hardly dared hope for. The strain drives a wedge between them, and a confrontation might spell the end of their relationship.
Tommy really couldn't afford to lose his job. It would absolutely be the end of his hopes and dreams. He's been going through so much and everything is starting to look up for him. So when Jim loses his job in place of Tommy's so Tommy won't lose everything it's huge!
With Jim now being out of work you see him helping Tommy out with his new house and with that their friendship grows and changes into something else.
I loved Tommy. He was so adorable and his stuttering when he was nervous was endearing. Jim and Tommy's friendship is a solid thing so when there's the thought of romance it's a bit scary and I get that. You don't want to ruin an already amazing thing.
I liked this short story it's fun, beyond sweet, and it's a quick read. This is what you read when you need a pick me up. Well done.
