Cameron Pearce loves to work hard and play hard. Living in New York City, means lots of men and lots of variety. He isn’t looking for love.
When he goes to his small hometown Dickensville for Christmas, food friends, family and seeing his best friend Levi are what’s on the agenda. He also hopes for some friends-with-benefits enjoyment.
Levi Jones owns and runs his own café in Dickensville. He loves the Christmas season and all that comes with it. Decorating, baking, and snow among other things.
Another perk is when Cameron visits home and he gets him all to himself.
What will happen when true feelings are revealed and everything is put on the line? Will their friendship survive?
Can best friends go from hooking up to a real relationship? Do they even want to?
This book contains delicious cinnamon buns, a cute westie and sexy hot men to warm up your holidays. 


As I pulled Levi on top of me, I shuffled up into him. He kissed me and I loved the feel of his beard scratching against mine. We fell into an easy rhythm and I could feel his erection through his jeans, hard against mine. I slid my hands down his pants and squeezed. His fingers trailed leisurely through my hair and it felt amazing. He thrusted against me as his tongue slid along my lips, requesting entry. I let him in and he explored, tangling our tongues. He tasted of cinnamon and sugar. Delicious.
Just as I was getting into it and wanting to take off more clothes, a beep interrupted us. Rory barked like crazy and I let my head fall back in frustration.
He jumped up. "That'll be the cinnamon buns!"
"You are picking your baking over me?” I called through to the kitchen.  This really was like a sweet-pain-pleasure-torture or something. Sex or cinnamon rolls? I laughed to myself and got up. “Wait, don't answer that, I'd probably do the same."
"All in good time, my friend," he said. "I do have to get these ready for the Christmas bake sale at the LGBT center." Levi would donate anything he could to that center. He was incredible. I made a monetary donation each year, but his gift seemed that much more earnest. I gave him my puppy dog eyes look in hopes of snagging one. "Pleeease..."
"You are incorrigible," he said as he pushed my fingers away.

Damn, I had almost swiped some of the delectable icing. He told me they need time to cool down anyways. Them and me both, I thought. I was hot and horny from a few minutes with him on the sofa earlier. There would be time for more later.
