Alex is falling in love with Michael, one of the gorgeous handymen who maintain his property. Can Alex trust the Fernando brothers or are they thieves?

After moving into his new house, Alex Sucre employs the three good-looking Fernando brothers as handymen to maintain his home and garden. He’s immediately attracted to Michael, the youngest, and enjoys watching his muscle-packed body through his study window as he works.

After a spate of burglaries in the area, one of Alex’s neighbors accuses the brothers of the thefts. Alex is reluctant to believe that any of them could be responsible, as their business is thriving and they appear to be honest men. But once that seed of doubt has been sown, Alex wonders whether they can be trusted.

Should Alex confront Michael with his suspicions and risk destroying their newly formed relationship?

I thought this was an interesting short story. I will admit that at the beginning, it was confusing because we were lead to believe that he was simply admiring the handyman, but then it turns out they’ve been on a few dates.
I’ll admit there is quite a bit of plot, but I felt like the closure was quite rushed after it dragging out so much.
I did like that the characters were imperfect and had normal doubts about a budding relationship, however, I did feel like the feelings were a bit rushed since it had only been a few weeks.
All in all a good little steamy read.
