Today, Paul and Eran share a sweet moment…

He chewed his lips as he eyed the couch against the wall bathed in the soft lights of the Christmas tree.
Color tinged Eran’s cheeks, but he met Paul’s gaze steadily as he picked up Paul’s hand and deliberately pressed his lips against his palm. Paul shivered with the soft contact.
“Come here, baby.” Paul slipped an arm around Eran’s waist and led him to the couch, sitting beside him. He stared in wonder at the full lips that had caressed his palm. Eran was really in his home. “Can I kiss you?” he asked, feeling breathless.

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.
