Overall Blurb:

Love sees through all differences and no matter what the situation it can strike the heart of any soul at any given time.

Simple delicacies like donuts and coffee can bring two people together no matter what their differences and when love comes into play, it can make for a very satisfying experience.

In these two stories, Cupid shoots his arrows at four men, drawing them to one another through chance encounters that instantly grow into something more.

Smooth Like Latte

Blurb:

Brendan Walsh likes money and because of this, he is willing to deal with his irrational, homophobic dad who has threatened to disown him if he comes out gay to the world. This puts Brendan on edge and alert at all times, leaving little to no time for him to build a steady relationship with anyone.

Davori “Latte” Jenkins is a happy go lucky barista working in the Walsh building. Born and raised in North Carolina, Latte possesses extremely good looks and charms the pants off anyone in his path using his Southern boy attitude.

When Brendan visits the shop Latte works in, they’re immediately drawn to one another. Latte makes him a caramel latte with something extra and because Brendan isn’t out of the closet, they keep their thoughts and flirtations silent. Once they start dating, Brendan gets the courage to come out publicly and the relationship goes into overdrive. Still, Latte desires something more to define their relationship.

Excerpt

“You have a good one.” Latte placed another coffee on the top and smiled at the next. “Miss Laura, is it? Tall caramel latte, extra sugar, no cream.”

“You got it.” She laughed. “How the hell do you memorize all these orders?”

Latte shrugged. “Just doing my job, ma’am.” He wrote her name on the cup and filled it with hot water. While he grabbed the milk, he looked over at Brendan Walsh, still giving him the side eye.

Baby.

“Where have you been all my life,” he mouthed to himself and clapped his hands. “Mr. Owens, having the same today? Tall hazelnut, no sugar, three creams?”

“I sure am.”

Pleased his memory still worked through distractions, Latte moved to the back and finished the other customer’s drink.

Derrick came up beside him and nudged his side. “Well, Latte, looks like you got an admirer. I still don’t get how you’re into hairy chests and balls with all this good-looking women practically giving you their panties, but what do I know?”

“Exactly. Nothing.” He chuckled and finished grabbing cream from the fridge. “Come on, Derrick, you gotta admit he’s gorgeous. Look at him. Tall, reddish brown hair, beautiful hazel eyes, and I can tell even from under that coat, the man takes good care of himself.”

“Yuck, just go after him already.” Derrick made a face and turned away.

Latte laughed. “I wish I could.” He headed back up to the counter, finishing Mr. Owens’s coffee. “Here you go, Mr. Owens. You have a nice one.” Latte placed it in front of him and shifted his focus back to Brendan who was still talking with Cathy but eyeing Latte, too.

Much to his delight, Latte noticed the line was a lot shorter now, but a few of his regulars still needed their beverages. “Um, Miss Lisa, give me a sec, alright?” Latte wiped his apron and headed over to where Cathy and Brendan were standing. “Everything good with the drink?”

“Oh yeah, he was just…” Cathy blushed.

“It’s excellent, Latte. The best macchiato I’ve had in a long time, thank you.” Brendan’s slim lips curled into a smile.

Latte wished they were alone because he could tell Brendan didn’t like flirting in public. “Um, good. Thanks for the tip, too. Perhaps you should come down and see us more often.”

“I should and I will. Promise me you’ll be here to make it every morning, and I’ll make a regular appearance.” Brendan held up his cup in toast. “Come visit me,” Brendan mouthed and handed him a card.

“I hope so and I’ll see you around then.” Latte backed away and went back to his customers, trying to forget the hot man standing there staring him down.

Regardless, he got the message. Brendan was indeed interested in talking to him, but wasn’t keen on making his personal business public. Latte could certainly understand, being from the South where he had to hide in the shadows almost every day of his life.

Now that he moved up to Chicago, he expected to live life outside of the closet and wanted a partner willing to do the same thing.
