From the blurb:

I'll admit I've never had grandiose plans for my future. I'm really more of a "take it as it comes" sort of dude. But making minimum wage at a small-town sandwich shop wasn't exactly what I had in mind after college graduation either. It may not be an exciting life, but it isn't so bad. At least I have my amazing coworkers and friends who always try to make the workday fun.

Everyone, that is, except the new guy, Simon.

That guy is not fun. He's broody and silent, but I can tell that something interesting is brewing just under his surface. Day after day I try to get his attention, try to coax him out of his shell. He won't even look at me, let alone talk. It's making me a little crazy, if I'm honest.

I don't even know why I care—I'm not gay. But there's just something about him that draws me in. He's become this mystery that I need to unravel.

Until one night I get a small peek behind Simon's mask—a shared kiss, just a minute in time, and then it's gone.

I don't even know what to think. All I know is I need more.

I want all the hidden parts of him.

I don't understand this obsession, this need.

And I'm afraid that there isn't much I wouldn't do for just a minute more.


He’s quiet and reserved, and I can’t ever imagine that dude having sex. It’s probably silent and soft and boring. The thought of him naked and rutting up against someone sets my skin on fire, and I push the thought away, not liking how it makes me feel. Yeah, I’m not thinking about dudes naked. That’s not something I do.  

The rest of our shift, any words lobbed his way are tossed aside, discarded like the garbage I carry out right before closing. It makes me fucking insecure, the way he just ignores me. I usually can get anyone to open up to me, to at least make idle chatter, but not him. He’s as silent as silent can be. Makes me squirm. 

“You have any plans tonight?” I ask him, trying once more to get him to open up. I don’t know why I torture myself like this. Seems I like the pain of rejection. 

Simon just stares at me, blinking a few times, and then swivels his eyes away. Well, I guess that’s a no then. 

“Right, cool,” I say, shoving my hands in my pockets before pulling them out again. Don’t know why I did that when there’s nothing in there that I need. Seems to be a nervous habit this guy brings out in me. “Okay, well I guess we should lock up,” I say, and he just moves past me, brushing against my arm as he does it. Something shifts inside of me and I feel a flutter in my stomach, like I’ve just been swept down the incline of a rollercoaster.
