Love is in the air. And Dominic Ballard wants to gag. A hard break-up made Dominic disgusted with love and relationships. So, when that stupid holiday called Valentine’s Day rolls around, he’d rather do anything but join the masses celebrating. When a fellow co-worker dressed as Cupid delivers a Valentine from a secret admirer, Dominic announces to the entire office what he thinks about all that lovey-dovey stuff.
Casper Marello has a crush. On his boss. There is no way he’d ever act on it because dating your boss? That’s a big fat no-no in the employee handbook. But what harm could it be to invite Dominic out to dinner with Cas and his best friend on Valentine’s Day? Even if that boss just proclaimed his undying hatred for the emotion called love. It’s only a friend thing, right?
When dawn arrives, the two men wake-up, cuddled in the same bed. Naked. Swearing it was a one-time thing thanks to too much wine, they go their separate ways, with Dominic determined the relationship remain strictly friend zoned. Except, they can’t keep their hands off each other and the office heats up behind closed doors. Dominic finds himself unable to walk away from Casper as the walls around his heart melt. And Casper’s crush blooms into something much deeper than he ever expected.
Will Dominic and Casper fall to Cupid’s arrow or will they miss their chance to discover a love that can last for always?
