The last place Theo wants to be is his best friend's New Year's Eve party watching his secret crush fall in love. Lucky for him, fate has other plans, in the form of a hot mechanic with a mouth made for sin. Now Theo has to choose: play it safe, or jump?

Danny Moretti's got nowhere better to be on New Year's Eve than hauling some trust-fund douche-bag's Lexus to the shop,

Opposites attract!

Short and steamy hot.
I love stories with mechanics LOL.
The Celtic Rebel (Richard)
Hot and steamy quick read. This is the first thing I have read from Ms. Moray and I really liked it. I liked both characters and loved the differences in both; a true example of opposites attract. I liked the happy for now ending, but wouldn't mind visiting these characters again in the future. ...more

Short snippet. Too short for real satisfaction but I hope for the best for Danny and Theo.

Another win!

RJ Moray definitely delivers each and every time. This was more vanilla than the others but I think it was fun just as it is ☺️

Good story, smoking hot, but I'm not sure how Theo and Danny would work in the long run. BUT I'm perfectly happy to read more of them if Ms. Moray would like to tell more of their story! (hint hint!) ...more

2.5 stars because choices were made and none of them particularly good

So I adore his boy next door. I'm on season 2 and I'm loving every single thing about it. I don't know why, I just do and I've accepted this about myself. I'm still a good person. This was nothing I was hoping for.

It feels wrong to call it bad because it's not, it's just a choice. From the writing style, to the odd but not incorrect grammar usage, even the way Theo's character is written is a choice. He's not a terrible char

This is a short story about two men who are looking for more but don't think they will find what they need. In this book we get more to Danny's story and we get Theo's story. Theo is hung up on a straight man who is in love with his woman. So when he get's invited to his best friends New Years Eve party he knows the man he really wants will be there with his girlfriend and doesn't want to go. Along the way his car dies and he is forced to call his best friend Dallas. Dallas offers him his mechan ...more

This is my first time reading R.J. Moray but it will not be the last. Especially if there is more to come for Theo & Danny's story. This was such a quick, hot read I can't wait for more. There's nothing lacking in this short work; does a great job of developing the scene & characters in an interesting & satisfying way. An addictive way, too, making me want to read more because I loved it not because I thought it needs more fleshing out. This is just the kind of first, new read that I needed for ...more

3.5 stars

The book is just too short. Things were just getting started between Theo and Danny when it ended. I would definitely love to read more about them. *Only after reading the author's note at the end did I realize that I had encountered Danny before very briefly in one of the Channon and Jack stories.*

Enjoyable short story. Danny and Theo meet on New Years Eve as Danny picks up Theo's car and hauls it back to his family garage for repair. A mutual interest sets off a spark between them with potential for more.

For the page count, I was quickly invested in the characters, but wished it was longer as I would really like to see them work out as a couple.

Heartening end.

An enjoyable fast read

While a quick read, the story was enjoyable and the characters were well defined. I was left wanting more as their future together is unclear, as are the issues Theo is facing that may or may not allow him to ultimately accept Danny on a permanent basis. So, a HFN but by no means a clear HEA
3.5 rounded up. Short & sexy read!

Mostly just a PWP, but I felt like we got enough of the characters for me to care about them, and the ending was positive and HFN, which is realistic given they'd literally just met! Plus, I'm assuming this Danny is the same one who had a cameo in Moray's Boy Next Door Series, which was fun. :)

The Mechanic!

Very short story about Danny a character from another series with Jack and Channon.
Danny helped his friend Jack out by going over to his place to visit Channon while Jack was in Japan.
There Jack allowed Channon to pleasure Danny on Jack's behalf. Now he may have found his own man/boy, I hope Danny gets a full story.

My one complaint, this novella was too short, I want more of Theo and Danny's story.

Fingers crossed, cos they are hot together, well, assuming you like m/m kink.

If you are a fan of the author's His Boy Next Door series then you may recognise Danny from a cameo he had there keeping Channon company when Jack was away.

Danny meets Theo

Theo is a rich man who is in love with his straight friend but no one knows he's gay. Danny is a mechanic who picks up Theo and his broken down car. Danny sees something in Theo that no one sees.

Something short comes this way

This was short story of the beginning of a relationship. A bit of a dramatic start but a start all the same. It was a classic Moray work with the yin yang pairing of the couples and steamy scenes 😎

Too short

Cute but too short. Can't wait for another i hope it will be longer. Not too bad for the first book.

I remember Danny. I would love to find out how these guys are doing. I wonder what Danny has shown Theo so far.
Dec 31, 2018 rated it really liked it
A hot and steamy short for New Year's. I liked how Danny saw right through Theo to the man underneath. He knew what Theo needed and gave it to him. I'm glad Theo wasn't a total stuck-up snob and was able to let go for Danny. I'd be interesting to see them long-term. ...more

I need more of Danny & Theo


I’ve been rereading His Boy next door series and this one as well. I love that Danny found someone for himself, because he was so good and sweet to Channon and helping Jack out.
I really need to read more of these two though, I’m super curious how this story will evolve in time.
So please continue as a mini series or as a start for a new complete series.
