Characters: Aron Costa, Malachi and Julian Costa
Sub-Genre coming our/romance
Aron Costa’s summer was all planned. Despite having to remodel the family lake house, it would be a vacation of sorts, and he had every intention of enjoying it—until the friend who was supposed to help him got injured and left him in a lurch. He decides to take the opportunity to bond with his son and hires Julian and his roommate, Malachi, to assist.
As a broke college student, Malachi could use the money, and spending the summer with Aaron for eye candy sounds like a dream. “Look but don’t touch” becomes his motto. But when Julian starts flaking on his responsibilities and Malachi and Aaron are forced to spend long hours alone together, their mutual attraction is impossible to resist.
Aaron can’t fight the temptation sexy Malachi presents. But more than their age difference stands in their way, not the least of which is Aaron’s semi-closeted status and the fact that he’s never openly discussed his sexuality with his son. He has no idea how Julian will react when he learns his father is not only gay, he’s also dating his best friend.
What a fun story to read. Aron is a hardworking man that has made his living as a contractor. Working with strong heterosexual men every day doesn’t come without consequences though. He has been in the closet for a little over 20 years now. But its all worth it because he is able to raise his son and give him everything he has ever wanted. Including a college education. When he needs help to renovate his parents’ home and his best friend gets hurt he is forced to call Julian (his son) to see if he would help him over the summer. He hopes this will give him time to bond father and son. When Julian brings his college roommate to help them out everything changes for Aron. /the attraction between Aron and Malachi is immediate but both men know its not a good idea. With so many hurdles to get over the men start the daunting taste of getting to know each other..
I would recommend this story to anyone looking for an easy fun read.
