Best-selling gay erotica author J. M. Snyder delivers four stories about men who find love and lust while ‘hard’ at work. From a hotel employee putting in overtime during a comic book convention, to a pair of coworkers who finally hook up while on a business trip, from a supervisor who hires a new salesman in the hopes of taking their working relationship beyond its professional level, to a tattoo aficionado whose crush on his tattoo artist keeps him returning to the parlor for more ink, each story explores the dynamics between men in the workplace. Included in this collection: Carey’d Away – It’s comic convention weekend at the Omni Hotel where Carey Thornton works, and while checking in the vendors before the crowd arrives, he meets the sexy Pat Dix, setting up the booth for Kryptonite Comics. Patrick has never dreamt an outgoing guy like Carey would ever find him attractive. He’s surprised when Carey asks him to hang out after the convention hall closes, and he surprises himself by saying yes. A late night in the hotel pool with his new friend might just be what Patrick needs to get ‘Carey’d away.’ Double Standard – Jeff Wallace has lusted after Evan since the moment his new employee first stepped into his office, and he knows Evan is just as interested. The only problem? The little paragraph in the employee handbook that states they can’t get together just because Jeff’s the boss. Jeff has pleaded with his own supervisor to change the rules. But it’s a no go…until Jeff finds himself working late one evening with no one left in the office but Evan, who decides to take matters into his own hands regardless of what the employee manual might say. On Company Time – Since his first day at his new job, Jimmy has had a horrible crush on a sexy coworker named Scott. When the two men are scheduled to attend a business trip, Jimmy hopes it’s the perfect opportunity to make his move. Unless Scott makes one first. The Tattooed Heart – Chris rents a booth at Tattoo 804 where he makes a living as a tattoo artist. To satisfy his artistic cravings, he coerces his friend Lee to stop by after hours for free tattoos in exchange for letting Chris design whatever he wants. Lee’s body is a shrine to Chris’s artwork. Every tattoo he has is a custom creation from his friend, whom Lee has loved for years. Though both men are gay, Lee has never had the courage to let Chris know how he feels. What will it take for Chris to realize the lover he’s looking for has been sitting in his tattoo chair all along?
