What could be more naughty and delicious than hot sex in the company sauna with a gorgeous stranger?

Dr. Parker Crowe is a straitlaced forensic scientist who works long hours and lacks social skills. He works out at the company gym to tone up his lean body and for three weeks, has his eyes set on Dallas Austin. His physical presence is sturdy and imposing, his body is scarred, and he carries himself with quiet authority and sharp intelligence. Parker knows he wo

Just a fun little erotica throwaway about two men who know each other only through having worked out together in the company gym for three weeks. One of them finally makes a move when they're in the sauna. This is an extended sex scene but a well written one with intriguing characters and hot chemistry.
Holy shit, Batman.
Okay, so this is seriously... *guzzles some more ice cold water, fans self* - seriously hot. And cute. I actually giggled when Dallas called Parker cute and he started acting all offended! :)
Nevermind that I read this all in, like, ten seconds.
Well, this is gonna work fine if you're cold and don't have hot chocolate on hand ;P

Slippery When Wet works just fine as a quick smut-fix, but as a story it feels like

In my opinion, writing a truly good short story is a challenge even for the best of authors. To create solid characters that interact in a meaningful and realistic way in just a few pages requires a deft hand and a master storyteller that knows how to exercise restraint while letting the imagination run wild. Laura Baumbach is just such a writer and her story does not disappoint. Her mastery of creative imagery and in depth characters never fails to light up the page.

The only criticism I have of

I really enjoyed Slippery When Wet - the only quibble I have is that I wish it was longer. I would love to see a sequel that explores Parker and Dallas' budding relationship.
