Friends. Enemies. Lovers.
For these bad boys and geeks, the fire gets a second chance to burn.
I thought I was finally ready for my first boyfriend. I was twenty-four years old, and I dreamed about something sweet and easy with a fellow geek. But somehow, I ended up on a date with Mars instead.
He was a total playboy. Sure, he loved science-fiction as much as I did, but he had tattoos up his arms and no interest in a boyfriend. I wanted to run away, but every time he smiled, I ended up sticking around.
The real problem was, Mars didn’t move to Seattle alone. He moved with his best friend and occasional hookup buddy, a guy just as rough and tumble as Mars was, but with a mean glare, too. A glare that was seared into my memory many years ago.
Back when Mars’s badass, sexy roommate was my high school bully.
Not only was Rip Cirillo back in Seattle, but now, he was an out gay man, too. I was still the awkward geek with no dating experience, but Rip had seduced more men and broken more hearts than I could begin to imagine.
A love triangle with my high school bully? Not exactly the first love I was looking for.
