Successful fashion model Denver Carlisle is finally living on his own. He’s got a new apartment, a neighbor who has a problem shutting his blinds, and a local bakery with an owner who makes his knees weak. It’s raining men, and Denver hasn’t gotten any in a long time. Going out on a limb, he asks Ethan Monahan out and resorts to a little exhibitionism for his neighbor. Only to be turned down by both. That’s a first.
Ethan Monahan runs his own bakery and has a new neighbor who walks around naked. The latter is a little too distracting. When his naked neighbor turns out to be none other than model Denver Carlisle—and the customer who asked him out—Ethan tries to make amends. In a purely friendly way.
Friendship leads to more, and both men find themselves in over their heads with emotions and compromises. Denver has trust issues that could span the Sahara, and Ethan is a product of the foster system with a chip on his shoulder and a serious wariness of those with money. There’s only one way to reconcile their issues: work together.
Denver Carlisle is the last member of the Carlisle family who is single. The last brother to fall in love was his twin Dorian, who fell in love with professional hockey player Eric Belanger.
After Dorian moved in with Eric, Denver decided to move into a smaller place of his own. While he’s painting, Denver looks out of his window and sees the perfect bare butt from an apartment in the next building over. Because Denver is afraid of being seen he turns his back every time the man goes to turn around. After discussing the perfect butt with his brothers, Denver decides to see if he can advance the flirtation a bit further by reciprocating. So, for the next several weeks Denver walks around his apartment naked, he does practically everything naked right up until the day the blinds are pulled and he doesn’t get to see the bare butt again.
Ethan Monahan is a bakery owner who has become so dedicated to making his bakery a success he has let all relationships outside of his staff go by the wayside. He knows he’s lonely but he also knows that he will never fall in love because Besides that, Ethan now has someone in the building next door who has started doing practically everything naked. Ethan is certain anyone he falls in love with will surely die and leave him. Ethan has no problem believing this right up until he meets Denver Carlisle. There’s just something about Denver that gets under his skin.
Denver likes the fact that Ethan has no idea who he is so he has no preconceived notions about him just because he’s a model. It’s an adjustment on both their parts but both Ethan and Denver make the decision to at least try dating. They get along exceptionally well and before you know it, they’re falling in love with each other. +Denver’s not certain but he’s pretty sure it’s because he’s a Carlisle but things rarely ever run smoothly for either himself or his brothers and his relationship with Ethan is no different, they have some major ups and severe downs.
If you want to know if Denver and Ethan make it out the other side of their rollercoaster relationship you’ll have to get yourself a copy of Shifting Views to find out, you won’t be sorry!!
