If you can't take the heat…

James Lassiter has had a crush on fellow culinary student Ethan Martin for three years, but has never had the guts to make a move. Putting himself out there is hard, especially when under the thumb—and wallet—of his overbearing parents. Now that bad boy chef Ethan—who is always vying with Jamie for best in class—is struggling with the pastry course, Jamie suddenly has a reason to reach out.

Ethan doesn't mean to be an ass—okay, so mostly he does—but even though he's secretly hot for Jamie, he sure as hell doesn't want help with pastry. Ever since his dad walked out, Ethan has been the one to hold things together and he's done fine on his own. Except that he can't get his cake to rise.

Jamie could be the answer to what Ethan's been missing his whole life—someone to depend on. But with the two competing for the same scholarship, things suddenly get too hot to handle. And if Jamie finds the strength to go for what he wants, he isn't about to settle for what he needs.

In the Raw is the first book in the In the Kitchen series. Stay tuned for book two, In the Fire, available in November 2014 from Carina Press.

 Opposites attract and when the macho construction worker meets the sexy guy from the supermarket it changes both their lives.
Kevin is bisexual. 
He knows the truth: He’s had girlfriends and craves experience with men. He'd never tell anyone his sexy or romantic fantasies. And could never imagine coming out to his dad or his mates. They are all blue collar workers like him. He's a super romantic and sweet guy who just hadn't found anyone to fall in love with until...

Opposites attract.
Out, loud, and proud: Perry is at a stage in his life when he doesn’t need a boyfriend just casual fun. He avoids hookup apps. Luckily, there are plenty of other ways to meet guys. Some of those are not things you’d admit to your coworkers in the supermarket.
When you don’t want a boyfriend, fate will send along the perfect candidate. Sometimes several to choose from. This time lady luck has sent a couple of guys for Perry to choose from: Kevin and Kevin's brother.

Unlikely circumstances bring Kevin and Perry together. The chemistry between them inevitable means they can’t keep their clothes on. And they must make physical connections involving hands and mouths.

There is a great deal of kissing and man loving man in this story.

Kevin & Perry's story is another low angst, feel-good, gay romance in the Sky High Scaffolders (Our Secret Wedding) series.
