Coaching the Neighborhood

by Jaylen Florian

Their first touch is destined to change everything…

Toby, brand new in town, isn’t expecting to become mesmerized by any handsome men quite yet. He just wants to earn a spot on the adult league swim team and make some fun-loving friends who share his passion for the sport.

Lucas, the aquatic center coach, is Toby’s polar opposite in many ways. Intense and brooding, with a fiery spirit rumbling under an unflappable exterior, the coach isn’t the type Toby has ever been attracted to before.

Raw magnetic power, beyond either man’s full understanding, seems to pull them closer together. But differences in personality and age aren’t the only things keeping them apart. A one night stand from Toby’s past comes back to haunt him and Lucas isn’t about to compromise his responsibilities as a coach to play favorites with any of the swimmers, no matter how charming or gorgeous Toby may be.

Read now to discover if these men can overcome their challenges and open themselves up to one another. “Coaching the Neighborhood” is steamy gay fiction, a novella, featuring mature romantic themes. It is the eighth book in the Men of Rugged Heights series and it can be read as a stand alone story.
