Chapter 2: Lachlan

“How do you want to handle things downstairs?” Alessandro asked as we redressed after our incredible shower.

Maybe it was the satisfaction dulling my mind, but his words didn’t connect for me. It also might have been because I was trying to sneak one last peek at his ass before he covered it with his shorts. “Huh?”

He couldn’t hold back his grin. “What should we tell Callahan and Baxley? They think I came up here to suck your dick.”

“But you did come up here to do that.” I tried not to remember how good it felt as I finished putting on my clothes.

Alessandro laughed hard. “Yeah, but do you want them to know that?”

“They would assume that even if it wasn’t true.” It was an unfortunate consequence of all of us being gutter-dwellers about sex.

“Are you okay with that?”

I started to make a cavalier retort, but I stopped myself. If I wanted another chance at experiencing the incredible joys Alessandro’s mouth offered and maybe more, I needed to give him a genuine answer and not laugh it off. I held his gaze as I told him, “I’m not ashamed of what we just did.”

It was cute watching him fight back a pleased smile. “That’s good to know.”

Closing the distance between us, I didn’t resist my strange urge to reach out and caress the outline of his jaw. “Nothing that amazing can be embarrassing.” Something in me urged me to kiss him again, so I did. In a calmer state of mind, I could appreciate how soft his lips were as they parted for me, inviting me to delve deeper for a taste. Even without passionate need fueling my desires, it felt so damn good that I never wanted to stop. “Especially because it would be a lie to say that I don’t want more.”

His flirty smile stirred me up inside in unexpected ways. “If you keep kissing me, you’ll definitely get more. We’ll also be in danger of not making it downstairs.”

Since I was still tapped out after two back-to-back orgasms, I needed a little more time to recover. “I’ll save it for later. Let’s get the heckling part over with first.”

He laughed as he led the way out of my bedroom, his shorts hugging his ass. How had I never noticed how perfect it was?

Because you were scared you might like it, the voice in the back of my mind answered.

That may have been true in the past, but after such an intense experience together in the shower, it definitely wasn’t now. I couldn’t wait to have another chance to enjoy Alessandro.

After another disappointing breakup, Lachlan is tired of dating all the wrong women. Even though he’s straight, his curiosity starts to get the better of him. What would it be like to be with his gay best friend, Alessandro?


I’m sick of wasting my time with women who love my money more than me. The only person who has ever cared about me and not my fortune is my flirtatious best friend, Alessandro. We always joke about me switching teams when I get bored with being straight, but lately, I’ve stopped laughing it off and started considering it as a very tempting possibility.

After breaking up with another gold-digging girlfriend, why shouldn’t I cheer myself up by having a little sexy fun with Alessandro? After all, it might be hot, right?


I’ve always had to joke about my attraction to Lachlan because I know he’ll never take my feelings seriously when he’s straight. But he shockingly asks me to show him what he’s been missing by only being with women. This is my big chance to convince him that there could be more between us than just friendship. How can I say no if it will make my dreams come true?

If he wants me to show him a good time, I’m more than happy to teach him a lesson about why I can be more to him than the women who don’t deserve him. But can I make him fall in love with me for real?

It Might Be Hot is the first book in the Suntastic Fun duet. This novella features a friends to lovers, bisexual awakening, no angst romance. If you love cute sweetness, sexy fun, and scorching-hot banter that will make you laugh and swoon, you’ll adore this satisfying HEA without cliffhangers. Each book can be read as a standalone but is best enjoyed in order.

It Might Be Hot was originally published as Like It’s Hot for the Red Hot Summer M/M giveaway. A new epilogue has been added for publication.
