Title: Along Comes a Man
Author Name: G.A. Hauser
Publication Date & Length: December 15, 2015 – 255 pgs
Forty year old Freddie Oli and his longtime buddy, thirty-five year old, Barron Isaac, worked in the IT business together for years. When their company was bought out, Freddie and Barron decided to alter their career direction, and open their own landscaping business.
The two older men hire an ex-marine, Dirk Jameson, to help out. At twenty-eight, Dirk was eager to work, strong, and not to mention, gorgeous.
Although Freddie and Barron were gay, they never felt any chemistry between them, but their bond of friendship was powerful.
As Dirk begins to flirt with both men, Freddie worries that Dirk will be the demise of a good friendship and a budding business.
A strong partnership is tested as the men are faced with a handsome stud who seems to want it all.
Will this trio have a happy ending? Or will jealousy and doubt creep into their lives?
For Barron and Freddie, things were smooth sailing, until, along comes a man…
I like how they were able to grow in to their relationship, but there was so much going on with the back and forth, I just couldn’t really get in to a flow while reading.
With that being said, they did have some OK chemistry when it came to it. But, their connection was so strange – you had a friendship – business relationship, hurts coming through from the past and then a budding relationship all wrapped in to a messy bow.
I don’t think I would read this again, if given the chance.
Dirk drank his hot coffee, resting a leg on each man, since it was tight for the three of them on the bench seat. He liked the idea of working outdoors, and even though he had a degree in engineering, the thought of being cooped up in an office didn’t appeal.
The two men who interviewed him, however, did appeal to him.
Barron Isaac, a fit, handsome man, who Dirk figured was in his early thirties, had incredible blue eyes. He wasn’t very tall, but his arms were sculpted and he had designer stubble and conservatively cut brown hair. On his initial interview, Dirk had met both men. They’d told him they had been cut loose from an IT company that had been bought out, so immediately Dirk knew they were bright and eager to start their own business.
Since the IT world had become a clutter of winners and losers, landscaping in southern California was a good alternative. And in December, the rains had come, and plants needed tending, and lawns mowing. And in the summer drought, many residents were opting for drought-resistant plants or removing sod for rocks.
Sipping his coffee, Dirk glanced at Freddie Oli as he drove. Dirk imagined Freddie was slightly older than Barron, but was, in Dirk’s opinion, the perfect older man fantasy. He had slightly graying temples, some laugh lines near his eyes when he smiled, and was also fit, and well built. Dirk couldn’t help but see the friendship these two men shared, and even when they teased each other, it was good-natured and fun.
Dirk liked them on sight.
And would love to fuck them. Both.
Neither man wore a wedding ring, no one spoke of wives or children, and up until this morning, Dirk assumed the men lived together. He wasn’t so sure about it now, now that Freddie had told Barron to let Dirk park his motorcycle in the garage. If Barron lived there, wouldn’t he have just done it?
Dirk had thought he had a read on these men when he first met them. Now he wasn’t so sure. It didn’t matter.
He could certainly work for two straight buddies.
Dirk took a look at each man’s crotch, seeing the bulge in their pants.
But it sure would be fun if they were gay.
Dirk relaxed in the bench seat, letting his knees touch each man’s leg, and smiled.
