Out of the Frying Pan - Elouise East
Can a tentative friendship wipe away years of loneliness?
When Dean was unwittingly outed as gay at his previous fire station, things became uncomfortable. So when he heard rumours of a station that welcomed everyone without exclusion, he jumped at the chance of a transfer. The trouble with moving was that he didn't know anyone, and he refused to become a pest by accepting daily invites from his Chief. Finding Nourris Moi was a stroke of luck, and soon became his haven.
Oliver's dream of owning his own restaurant had come true, and after three years, he was finally turning a profit. Nourris Moi was his life, and he had no time for anything else. Until a certain firefighter became a firm fixture at one of his tables. The quiet and reserved newcomer caught his attention despite his determination to focus on his business.
Can Oliver and Dean find a balance between their career needs and what their hearts are crying out for?

Wrath - Ella James
My new stepbrother is insufferable. You'd think it wouldn't matter since I won't be here for long, but this guy gets under my skin like no one ever has. All-American, baby-faced, blue-eyed band dork and star soccer player. Everything about him is the picture of perfection—unlike me.
I don't think Do Gooder knows I'm starting senior year late. And he definitely doesn't know why. I've got secrets I'm taking with me to the grave. Everyone thinks I moved to my dad's small town to play varsity football, but I've got other plans, and DG's trying to thwart them all. He's making my life worse than it already is. Having him around is a damn plague.
But I can fight back. I found out a little secret about Mr. Perfect. He plays for the "other" team. That ball bat he's got stuffed into his gray sweatpants—it swings "that" way. The best part about this twisted game is when I find out it gets hard for me.
