When opposites attract, love blooms in unexpected places.
Buttoned-up botanist Stefan Albemarle has felt like an outsider his whole life. As a result, he mostly keeps to himself—makes it easier not to notice that no matter how he tries, people think he’s a know-it-all and a snob.
Freewheeling urban gardener Milo Rios has worked hard to get where he is, and he’s passionate about his job at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. He can get along with almost anyone, but no one has ever made him care enough to stick around.
When Stefan and Milo meet on Milo’s tour of the Botanic Garden, it’s hatred at first clash. But hatred quickly turns to lust as Milo shows Stefan how exquisite it can feel to lose the control he’s clung to for so long.
As Stefan’s mask begins to slip, Milo sees a deep vulnerability in the prim academic. Once he’s experienced Milo’s world, Stefan can admit that he wants more from life than professional success. If they can work together, Stefan and Milo just might be able to cultivate the future they both yearn for.
I slammed our mouths together, kissing Stefan deeply, feeling his taut body become pliable against mine. I bore him backward against the wall, and pressed us so close together we both gasped for breath.
His heartbeat pulsed against my lips as I sucked at the juncture of neck and shoulder, and there it was again—that sweet shiver, like his skin couldn’t contain him.
Stefan grabbed at my shirt and I opened my eyes for a moment to see that his eyes were squeezed tightly shut.
“This okay?” I murmured, sliding my hand down his flat stomach to his crotch. He was so fucking hard. He groaned his assent and I fumbled at his pants, the hidden hook and eye closure of his fancy trousers taking me a moment.
Finally, I dragged them down over his hips, revealing royal blue boxer briefs that glowed against his dark skin, and his straining hardness trying to escape from them. “Fuuuuck,” I muttered. “You’re so hot.”
He shook his head, but his eyes were ravenous where they rested on my hand cupping his cock. I slid my other hand around and squeezed his ass, the tight swell perfect in my palm. His cock jumped and he pressed his hips toward me.
“Mmm, can I suck you off?”
Stefan made a broken sound and nodded so vigorously I almost laughed. Stepping close one more time, I kissed him deep and long, rubbing his erection through the softest boxer briefs I’d ever felt. Clearly, Stefan liked nice things. He moaned into my mouth and his arms came around me, keeping me close.
A hedonist. Stiff and well-armored, he spread out in the warm sun and bloomed.
I kissed his cheek. Then I dropped to my knees and peeled that hot underwear down. His cock sprung out, gorgeous and rigid against his belly, and I licked it from base to head. Stefan slid a hand into my hair, his fingers so gentle. I looked up to find him watching me like I was a miracle. Like he’d never seen anything like this before.
