If you like contemporary romance and/or fantasy, this is your month. Sadly, I didn't run into anything in the way of frock coats or sword canes (though some of the fantasies do get into armor.)
Shotgun (Coda #7) by Marie Sexton
As a young man, Dominic Jacobsen already suspects he’s gay, and he gets all the confirmation he needs when a rich boy from out of town climbs into the back seat of Dominic’s GTO. One night with Lamar Franklin is all it takes to convince Dominic he’s found the man of his dreams. Unfortunately, that one night is all he'll get before Lamar returns to Tucson.
Fifteen years later Lamar returns to Coda, Colorado, after ending the latest in a string of bad relationships. He’s alone, depressed, and plagued by late-night phone calls from an unidentified caller. Lamar's ready to give up when he comes face-to-face with his past.
Since he was seventeen, Dominic has dreamed of a reunion with Lamar, but that doesn't mean he’s ready for it now. Facing small-town rumors and big-family drama is bad enough, but Dominic won’t risk losing custody of his teenage daughter, Naomi. The only solution is to make sure he and Lamar remain friends and nothing more. Clothes stay on, no matter what.
It seems simple enough. But for better or worse, Lamar has other ideas.
After 9 novels and short stories about the same three couples, it's interesting to see this small town series branching out. Some previous Coda favorites make an appearance, but this can be read as a stand alone. (Although considering the series contains Promises and Strawberries for Dessert, why would you want to?)
