After divorcing the woman he’d been with since he was seventeen, Nick Fuller is starting over. He owns the restaurant of his dreams and he’s determined to meet new people, find new passions, and experience life to its fullest. Easier said than done—that is until he meets his new neighbor, Bryce Tanner… 

Bryce is all about a good time. He plans to show Nick how it’s done, help him meet a few women, and enjoy the gift of the single life he’s been given. But things don’t go as planned, and soon they realize they’d rather be together than with anyone else. 

Neither man has ever wanted another guy, but there’s a connection between them from the start—a spark they can’t deny. They find themselves navigating an unfamiliar new world and dealing with unforeseen obstacles. Physical desire isn’t enough, and now Nick and Bryce are at a crossroads. They have to decide which way to go: the easy path they’ve always followed, or the one that's determined to trip them up at every turn.


Okay, this book was one of my first MM books and definitely the one that made me start searching out more books in this genre. I –quote- simply LOVE this book.

Nick Fuller is in a transition period in his life, he’s coming out of a divorce and has just bought a house on his own. He owns a restaurant and works a lot of hours and lost most of his friends in the divorce. He needs a fresh start and to start living a life of his own. When his new next-door neighbor, that he shares a backyard with, moves in....maybe he’ll get a chance at a new friend.

Bryce Tanner is a good time, he loves having fun and riding motorcycles. He’s found the career of his dreams in his shop, repairing and rebuilding motorcycles. When he moves in next door to Nick and learns that Nick has had a very sheltered life and has little experience with women, he’s determined to change that. Bryce makes it his mission to help Nick meet some women and to teach him how to enjoy the single life. Nick and Bryce become best friends and spend almost all of their free time together, they may be out looking for women, but neither seems to be really looking. They enjoy talking, eating and just hanging out together, more with each other than anyone else. These two don’t realize that the connection they have is something different than either has ever felt or wanted from another man. When the depth of that connection is pointed out....sparks fly!! 

This is one of my most favorite books, it’s a happy place, comfort food type of read. I can quote so much dialogue from this book, I’ve probably read it 10 times. If you have never read this book, you owe it to yourself to read it. These characters stole a piece of my heart and have held onto it and I happily leave it with them.
