Motorcycle shop owner Ben Makowski offers a three-day class for new riders. When he finds out one of his students doesn’t even like motorcycles, he’s irritated but drawn to the man at the same time. Though he can clearly see the new student is dealing with something difficult, Ben sets out to get to know what that might be and if he can help in any way.
Writer Angus Winter’s publisher has insisted he learn about motorcycles for an upcoming book, which is the last thing he wants to do. His fear of motorcycles stems from a tragedy in his past. But something about his sexy new teacher makes him want to open up to the man. Can Angus trust Ben with the burden he’s carried for so long?
You could have knocked him over with one finger when he opened the door and found Ben standing there, his hands braced on the doorjamb. He knew he was staring, but damn, what was he doing there?
“I was worried about you,” Ben told him.
Crap. Had he spoken aloud?
“You going to let me in?” Ben’s eyebrow raised as his gaze slowly traveled down Angus’s body.
Angus stepped back, still unable to speak, pulling the door wider. Ben stepped through the doorway and glanced around the tidy living room. Angus closed the door, but remained silent.
Ben smiled at him. “I guess I woke you up.”
Angus nodded, still not understanding what the hell was happening.
Ben pulled his jacket off and set it on top of the black leather recliner before turning his attention back to Angus. Something in the way he stared made Angus shiver and it had nothing to do with being cold.
Angus swallowed hard and tried to calm his growing nerves. “W-what are you….?” His voice trailed off as he swung his arm out to the side, gesturing to the living room.
“What am I doing in your apartment?”
“I told you. I was worried about you, Angus.” Ben took a step toward him.
“I-I’m fine,” Angus lied.
Ben looked like he didn’t believe him. “Really?” Big brown eyes stared him down.
Angus’s shoulders slumped and he shook his head. “No,” he whispered. What was it about Ben that made him want to reveal everything?
Ben moved quickly and before Angus could even process what was happening, he was wrapped in Ben’s arms, pulled tight against his broad chest, their hips and thighs pressed together. He breathed in and smiled, remembering just a few hours he’d thought he’d never see the man again. Angus wasn’t sure why he’d been wrong, but he wasn’t going to argue while feeling so incredibly secure in Ben’s embrace.
“I shouldn’t have let you leave,” Ben murmured, his lips so close, Angus felt his hot breath against his ear.
Angus pulled back a little and looked into his eyes. “Of course you should have. You had a class to teach. And why would you chase after me? You barely know me.”
A small smile played on Ben’s lips and his eyes flashed when he looked at Angus. “You’re right. I barely know you. But Angus? Getting to know you is my new goal in life.”
