Want by Ann Mayburn

Construction foreman Cody McPherson always considered himself as straight as they come. That is until he finds himself falling for the handsome stonemason, Sam Denham, that constantly occupies his thoughts. He wants Sam, badly, and can’t get the man out of his mind. Worse yet, he isn’t even sure if Sam is gay. When he finds out that Sam has signed up with a dating service searching for a guy who looks exactly like him Cody is even more eager, and confused than before.

Sam can’t believe that he’s developed a huge crush on his obviously straight co-worker. Even worse, the job that allowed him to see Cody on an almost daily basis has ended and he desperately misses his buddy in a way that goes far beyond just friendship. In an effort to soothe his aching heart and body, he tries to get a blind date with someone like Cody so he can pretend for just one night that he holds Cody in his arms.

When Cody himself shows up as Sam’s blind date, he is at once elated and afraid of having his heart broken by just another straight guy looking to sample the gay life. He wants to be so much more than Cody’s 1Night Stand and if he’s given the chance, Sam will do anything to prove that love doesn’t discriminate based on gender.

There was one man who haunted Cody McPherson's dreams that was Sam Denham, a stonemason who worked on the same construction site where Cody worked as a foreman. Sam was an owner of a successful marble and stone business. While working on the same construction site Sam and Cody developed a simple friendship, while hiding their secret feelings and admiration for each other.

To finally admit his attraction to Sam, Cody arranged a 1Night Stand at the same matchmaking service Sam was a member of. As soon they found each other at the same roulette table, they proceed into a hotel room.

Their 1Night Stand in a hotel room was romantic and sweet, but as as characters they were too undeveloped. As both of them expressed the true emotions they felt for each other, the love between them won. The epilogue at the end was classic and sweet.

This short story was an enjoyable mix of sweet desire, romance between two coworkers, and a HOT sexy one night stand. I enjoyed this short story, of course, but for my taste it was too easy and fast developed. I'm giving it 3.5 stars.
