Piper Welborn has created a warm, welcoming space for all in her queer-inclusive coffee shop, even if the long hours came at the cost of her love life. But she’s not ready to welcome one man in particular—a grumpy, muscular former hockey player. His smoldering presence is a temptation and a challenge to her long-standing vow not to date cis men.

Gavin Williams has no business starting a relationship, least of all with a woman he’s not sure even likes him. He can’t resist the Friendly Bean’s hot, pink-haired owner, but a casual fling is all he can commit to. He’s hoping to leave town for the next stage in his career… if he ever gets the call with the job offer.

A friends-with-benefits arrangement is perfect for them both—but neither is ready for the feelings that hit. When the post-hockey life Gavin always dreamed of is suddenly within his grasp, they’ll both have to make a choice: hold tight to what they thought life should look like, or work together to build something new.

CW: Off-page past death of heroine’s parents and hero’s past career-ending knee injury; on-page explicit sex, alcohol use, and heroine’s experience of bi-erasure.

TOO HOT TO TOUCH – Coming 2022

Tyler Valentine’s hockey career has had its ups and downs—including that time his lover and teammate outed him as bisexual in the locker room. But playing in Philadelphia has gotten him back on track. Still, he can’t play hockey forever, so he gives going back to school a shot one summer. He just didn’t expect his teacher to be his new team captain’s sister. Or for the attraction between them to be so… irresistible. PhD student Murray Silva has two jobs and a mountain of research to complete. She doesn’t need the distraction of Tyler Valentine in her classroom, or in her dreams. When summer turns to fall, class is over, and the hockey season starts again, they both have to decide if they have room in their lives for what is between them.
