Hudson West is the enemy. Nico Shah is trouble. However, when they’re forced to collaborate on a town project, they can’t stop the passion from burning. 
Hudson West is the enemy.
The calm, arrogant, stupidly hot owner of the rival restaurant in town never fails to push Nico Shah’s buttons. So when he and Hudson are invited to collaborate to cater the Chesapeake Days festival, he wants to say hell no. But with his mother’s upcoming transplant, he needs that money.
Nico Shah is trouble.
Hudson’s noticed the gorgeous, witty flirt and has veered far away. He’s looking for commitment while Nico’s looking for his next flavor of the night. Except now that they’re working together, neither can ignore the chemistry that’s one spark away from burning down a forest. And when they finally collide, the connection is beyond anything either has experienced. 
But with Nico still terrified of the word “boyfriend” and Hudson needing someone who belongs to him, this can only end in heartbreak. 
The footsteps stopped behind him, and a shadow fell. Not like Nico needed any other signals that Hudson stood there when he could feel the man’s presence a mile away. His fingers settled on the butter-soft fabric of the tee, finally one in the right size.
“Here,” Nico said, plucking the shirt from the box. He rose from his crouch and pivoted around.
Hudson waited inches away, tugging his Henley over his head in a fluid motion. This close, Nico got an eyeful of just how defined Hudson West’s chest was—droolworthy abs, smooth alabaster skin, and a few freckles in all the right places, including one right next to his left nipple. Nico caught a whiff of his cologne, all bay rum and spice, the scent sending a shiver through him. His cock stiffened in his tight jeans as his veins sparked with desire. Fuck. The man had no right looking like that.
Hudson’s eyes landed on his, those blues dancing with amusement. “Are you going to pass me a shirt, or are you going to stand there staring?”
