Andrew ‘Duff’ Wagner goes straight to the gods to get his love match made. He relies on Men Wanted, the matchmaking service run by Apollo, Artemis, and Eros to find his perfect match. He’s in love with a certain lawyer, but there can’t be enough magic in the cosmos to get them together, right?
Christian Foley knows exactly who he wants as his match, but he works with Men Wanted to find the perfect partner. He’s got a thing for Duff Wagner and won’t rest until he gets a date. Christian and Duff might have a chance if only Duff’s ex would stop butting in. When he finally hooks up with the sexy shop owner, they have to decide if their passion will go up in flames or start the fire to last forever.
“Why don’t we walk to the library? I’ve always loved the courtyard.”
“Sure.” Duff fell into step beside Christian, but said nothing until they’d walked the two blocks to the library.
The silence gave Christian time to think. He wanted Duff. Had since the quiet man walked into his law office. Back then, he’d told himself Duff wouldn’t want him. He was a lawyer. Who wanted to be with a lawyer? Not his ex-boyfriends.
Duff wasn’t his ex. He wasn’t anything yet. Just a match.
He gestured to one of the tables. “Have a seat.” He sat across from Duff. “First, I did contact Men Wanted. I told them I wanted a date and filled out the application. I answered those questions and told them I wanted this.”
“You did? This?” Duff stared at him. “Us? Or a date?”
Duff had the right to ask all the questions and want answers. The only time they’d been completely honest with each other had been concerning the will. Anything else personal hadn’t been discussed. He’d refused to let it happen. Now, he wanted to be with Duff. “I wanted to see you, yes. I wanted a date, but it seemed unwise to date someone who was a client. It was unethical.”
“But I never forgot how I felt when you walked into the room. I felt normal. I felt like you heard me.” He reached across the table. “When Men Wanted asked me about my regrets, I told them I regretted not trying to see you.”
“You told them that?”
“I did.” With no regrets. “Duff, you might have been my client then, but you’re not now.”
“I guess not.” Duff sighed. “Did you know Men Wanted would put us together?”
“No. I hoped they might, but no guarantees.” He squeezed Duff’s hand. “We were put together for a reason. Why not give us a chance? Why not try?”
