eBook Description: He said: "So what if I thought he was gorgeous? He was also kind of a jerk. But then our kids decided to be best buddies, and I kept having to see the guy, and...well, keeping him strictly as fantasy material who never opened his mouth got a little harder after that..."
And he said: "I don't have time for a personal life. I have a son whose medical history requires my full attention and a company I need to keep afloat in this awful economy. Making friends just isn't a priority. At least until the choice got taken away from me..."
On the surface, the only things single dads Peter Irving and Aaron Hardison have in common are their eight-year-old loner sons, who strike up a friendship. But the continued play dates with the boys and meetings in the park force the men to re-evaluate that position. When Peter discovers Aaron isn't as straight as he thinks, they agree to a "friends with benefits" arrangement. Sex for the sake of sex.
But the men soon find out, even those appearances can be deceiving...

Part of me was a little embarrassed about how I'd acted at his apartment. As soon as he'd mentioned ice cream, I'd turned into some kid who was never allowed treats. But honestly, I've spent a lot of my life denying myself what I wanted. In high school, I had to watch what I ate and work out like a maniac to keep my place on the varsity football team. In college, I could have rattled off half a dozen missed opportunities for dates at any one time. Since Ellie's death, I'd put all my personal desires on the back burner to focus on Sam. The thought of having ice cream--my favorite food in the whole world--before dinner, without reason to celebrate or anything like that made me, well ... giddy.
Hence, the embarrassment.
I wanted to make up for it. I had this overwhelming urge to prove to Peter I was a good father. Parenting obviously meant a great deal to him, especially in light of his custody agreement, and if our kids were going to spend a lot of time together--something that seemed inevitable at this point--I wanted him to respect me.
Seeing him smile was just an added bonus. Albeit, a secret one.
The distant ring of the phone drifted from downstairs.
"I'll be back in five minutes to make sure you're still working," I warned Sam.
He nodded without looking up at me. Guiltily, I jogged down the hall and took the stairs two at a time to get to the phone in time.
"Hi, Aaron?" Peter's voice was instantly recognizable, but he still helpfully introduced himself. "It's Peter, uh, Irving."
I grinned, in spite of myself. Funny that he'd call when I'd just been thinking of him. Not that I'd tell him that, of course.
