Today, Eran finds his courage…

Then Eran pressed his lips together as if gathering his courage and stood as well. Paul sucked in a breath. Their bodies nearly touched and he watched the tremor that passed over the lean body as Eran stood his ground, permitting the intimacy.
Fuck. Eran’s blue eyes were wide-open, vulnerable, exposing fear and dawning wonder. No one had ever looked at him with such eyes before. Thick lashes fluttered down and Eran turned his head, shying away, but not before Paul had caught the flicker of desire in the sky-blue depths.

Paul’s falling in love with the barista at the new-to-him coffee shop. He can’t help it. Eran’s shy smiles and heated gaze across the room is driving him wild. Now to convince the beautiful, intelligent guy to go out with him.
But Eran’s shyness has been painfully earned. Physically and emotionally abused by his Father and then again by his sister’s brutish boyfriend, he’s wary of intimacy. He jumps at shadows, expecting violence, and is convinced he’s undeserving of anyone’s love.
Paul is determined to show him otherwise. In fact, his friend Shelton agrees that Eran is lovely enough to be a model, and that with a little confidence, he believes Eran can be anything he desires. With the help of a counselor and attending self-defense classes, Eran is making progress, but it just might take Paul’s love to uncover the bold, sexy man hiding inside him.
