A sweet short story about love developing if you just add water.

Two co-workers in a lake after AC failure on a hot night wearing only boxers.

A 12 pack of beer.

A blanket.

No towels.

One large and friendly fish.

Some hugging for support.

Some kissing over fear.

Your imagination should be working by now. If not buy the book. It is worth getting your hands both Alex and Jayden.

The fish gets away. The boys don't.

Even short I really liked it

very short but it was really good. I liked that they both had crushes on the other but we're to afraid to act on it. Jayden was all for makings things happen between him and Alex. Alex having had a bad past experience was really afraid to hope. They both get what they want, to be together.

This was OK. The writing wasn't bad but it was just too short. There wasn't really any time for the two MCs to get to know each other before it ended. This won't stop me from reading the author's other books. I have my eye on a couple that are a little longer. ...more
