Rian Falwell has a problem.

And his name is Damon Louis.

Rian’s life as the art teacher to a gaggle of displaced boys at Albin Academy should be smooth sailing—until the stubborn, grouchy football coach comes into his world like a lightning strike and ignites a heated conflict that would leave them sworn enemies if not for a common goal.

A student in peril. A troubling secret. And two men who are polar opposites but must work together to protect their charges.

They shouldn’t want each other. They shouldn’t even like each other.

Yet as they fight to save a young man from the edge, they discover more than they thought possible about each other—and about themselves.

In the space between hatred, they find love.

And the lives they have always wanted…

Just like this.

“The romantic longing, themes of bravery and confidence, and moments of cozy domesticity shine.” — Publishers Weekly on Just Like That

About The Author

Cole McCade is a New Orleans-born Southern boy without the Southern accent, currently residing somewhere in Seattle. He spends his days as a suit-and-tie corporate consultant and business writer, and his nights writing contemporary romance and erotica that flirts with the edge of taboo—when he’s not being tackled by two hyperactive cats.

He also writes genre-bending science fiction and fantasy tinged with a touch of horror and flavored by the influences of his multiethnic, multicultural, multilingual background as Xen. He wavers between calling himself bisexual, calling himself queer, and trying to figure out where “demi” fits into the whole mess—but no matter what word he uses he’s a staunch advocate of LGBTQIA and POC representation and visibility in genre fiction.

And while he spends more time than is healthy hiding in his writing cave instead of hanging around social media, you can generally find him in these usual haunts.

Dominic Hurst is a man who’s always up for a challenge. Step in as director of the world’s second-largest theme park complex? No problem. Clean up the mess the previous director left behind? Sure. Have his seventeen-year-old daughter move in with him in a last-minute custody change? Bring it on.

Face off with a town full of matchmakers? Uh… what?

Oliver Jeffries is a man more than comfortable with his life. Teach teenagers to fall in love with literature? Absolutely. Tackle mindboggling tasks as head of the English department? Pass him the whip. Placate parents convinced their perfect children can do no wrong? Pfft. Child’s play.

Agree to a friends-with-benefits arrangement with the most talked-about man in Joyville? Uhm… maybe in secret?

When Dom and Oliver meet, there’s no question that friendship won’t be enough. But the citizens of Joyville don’t know the meaning of “private,” and dating the director puts Oliver firmly in the spotlight.

With the whole town watching and laying bets, is their fledgling relationship doomed to fail?

Excerpt

“What are you doing?” He sounds amused.

“Trying to choose. Which do you prefer?”

He makes a scoffing sound. “Choose? We don’t choose in this house. We take it all.”

I’m still processing that when he sweeps both containers from my hands, opens them, and proceeds to scoop some of each into both bowls. “There. The perfect solution.”

I stare at the bowls while he puts the ice cream away. “It does seem like it,” I agree. “Although I’ll admit that your house motto of ‘we take it all’ does concern me a little. What happens when you and Cara both want ice cream and there’s only a tiny bit left?”

His grin lights his whole face as he turns back to me. “Pitched battles. She used to win because she’d play the little girl card and start to cry crocodile tears, but now that she’s older, that doesn’t work. Now it’s my turn to win, because I’m the parent and I have the power to ground her.”

I can’t help the laugh that bubbles up. I grab my bowl and head back toward the living room, shaking my head. “That would definitely be interesting to watch. Ridiculous, but interesting.”

He follows me, and as we settle back onto the couch, a little closer to each other this time, he says, “Taste the ice cream first, and then tell me it’s ridiculous for me to fight my daughter for it.”

Rolling my eyes at the challenge in his stare, I scoop up a little bit of each flavor and put the spoon in my mouth. Sweet, creamy deliciousness explodes over my tongue, and I moan.

Yes. I actually moan over ice cream.

Dom smirks. “See?” He digs into his, and for a moment, there’s silence as we concentrate on scarfing down this incredible treat. I have to find out where he gets it from—the cartons didn’t look like mass-produced store stuff.

“You’ve got a little…”

I look up to see him gesture to my face. Oh, crap… am I wearing my food in my beard? How embarrassing. I wipe my chin, but he shakes his head and scoots closer.

“Almost, but… let me.” His thumb swipes slowly at the corner of my mouth, and my breath hitches. He presses his thumb against my lips. “Fudge,” he whispers. “Don’t waste it.”

I’m not thinking when my tongue strokes along his flesh, tasting the tiny hint of chocolate fudge and the warm, salty-sweet flavor of Dom’s skin.

I swallow hard. His eyes are intent on my face.

So I suck his thumb into my mouth. “Mmm.”

A tiny smile quirks his lips. “Want something else to suck on?”

I grin, releasing his thumb, and by unplanned mutual agreement, we lean in for a kiss. His mouth tastes even better than his thumb—probably because of the ice cream, but I like to think part of it is just him.

About the Author

Louisa Masters started reading romance much earlier than her mother thought she should. While other teenagers were sneaking out of the house, Louisa was sneaking romance novels in and working out how to read them without being discovered.

As an adult, she feeds her addiction in every spare second, only occasionally tearing herself away to do things like answer the phone and pay bills. She spent years trying to build a “sensible” career, working in bookstores, recruitment, resource management, administration, and as a travel agent, before finally conceding defeat and devoting herself to the world of romance novels.

Louisa has a long list of places first discovered in books that she wants to visit, and every so often she overcomes her loathing of jet lag and takes a trip that charges her imagination. She lives in Melbourne, Australia, where she whines about the weather for most of the year while secretly admitting she’ll probably never move.

CORRECT SIZE ARTWORK

Blurb

Nic Moretti teaches kindergarten at Bridges Elementary, a private school in LA’s Santa Monica Mountains. He likes being a teacher, but he misses playing and writing music.

Since he basically gave up on pursuing music as a career a year ago, he hasn’t been able to write anything decent, and it’s driving him crazy. Add to that the pressure he’s getting from his family and friends to find someone to date, and Nic’s feeling pretty frustrated.

Kim Junseo owns two Korean fusion restaurants he built from the ground up, and he keeps himself busy running it and taking care of his 5-year-old daughter, Hee-Young. Though on the surface he seems successful and happy, he’s also lonely – and terrified of relationships, since his marriage to his ex-husband Noah ended in disaster three years ago.

When Junseo comes to Nic’s classroom to throw Hee-Young a birthday party, sparks fly. Nic thinks Junseo is impossibly handsome, funny and sweet. Junseo’s drawn to Nic’s goofy, gentle spirit and thinks he’s beautiful. Junseo doesn’t even think twice about volunteering to teach Nic’s class about food and cooking. One thing leads to another, and soon they’re bonding over kimchi fried rice at Junseo’s restaurant and salami and cheese sandwiches at the Getty Villa as the heat builds between them.

Nic can feel himself opening up to Junseo, even telling him about his abusive father, a part of his past that he never shares with anyone. Nic’s writing music again, and Junseo is finally letting down his guard. Then Junseo’s abusive ex-husband Noah re-appears in his life, claiming good intentions, but Nic’s afraid that Noah’s going to try to worm his way back into Junseo’s life and hurt him.

Junseo, struggling to deal with old demons he thought he’d buried, pushes Nic away. He doesn’t like anyone telling him how to live his life, whether it’s Noah or Nic.

Excerpt

Was it physically possible for someone to be as beautiful as Junseo was? If Nic had known he was going to be graced by the presence of a male model holding a tray of meticulously prepared bite-sized snacks and another tray of cupcakes, he might have tried to at least be clean. Instead he’d been paint-splattered, sweaty, and he was pretty sure Aiden had wiped his nose on his sleeve right before Junseo had come in. The little bastard.

God. Junseo was…wow. Those elegantly shaped dark eyes, those soft lips, that sharp jawline, his black hair falling across his forehead, emphasizing his high cheekbones…Nic needed to stop. He was still at work. This was terrible.
