    Summary

    Neil Josten works as a math professor and lives a comfortable life in a neighborhood that happens to house all of his closest friends. He meets Andrew Minyard, the owner of the quaint bookstore down the street, at a barbeque and makes the mistake of agreeing to go to his book club.
    Lots of Andrew being an obviously lovesick fool, Neil being oblivious, and their friends loving them unconditionally.

    Summary

    It's summer at the Hatford Beach House, a cushy spot that Neil and his cousin Katelyn take over every year for summer break with their friends. Katelyn invites her boyfriend this year - and her boyfriend's twin brother.

    (His hotter, tattooed, more interesting twin brother.)

    In which Neil likes someone, Andrew makes an assumption, and Kevin is a really good friend.

    Summary

    Neil is a successful author with a stalker who seems to know a little too much about his past. He needs a bodyguard for his upcoming book tour. Enter: Andrew Minyard.

    I've marked this as Graphic Descriptions of Violence out of an abundance of caution, but I don't even come near the source material here.

     

    “Kevin Day told me about you.” The corners of Neil’s mouth lift the barest degree. It should be an unassuming, polite smile. Should be.

     

    Andrew isn’t convinced. He hums and leans back in his seat. “You know Kevin.”

     

    “We go way back,” Neil explains. He’s not giving any signs that indicate he’s lying, but still. Kevin usually holds his liquor better than he holds his secrets but Andrew thought he knew everyone Kevin has known since Palmetto State and he’d remember if this guy had been in the Nest.

     

    “He’s never mentioned you,” Andrew says.

     

    “I rarely mention him,” Neil replies easily.

    Summary

    Neil hurriedly pulls out his sketchbook and crosses the street. “Excuse me,” he says in fluid German, waving his hand to catch the short blonde's attention. He’s soundly ignored right up until he’s next to the man’s table. “Hi, sorry to bother you,” he smiles politely, “But I was wondering if I could sketch your portrait?”
