About the Author
Writer of romance, believer in love. Part Jersey, part Irish, and all Southern, which means I talk a LOT. Shae Connor lives in Atlanta, where she’s a lackadaisical government worker for a living and writes sweet-hot romance under the cover of night. She’s been making things up for as long as she can remember, but it took her a long time to figure out that maybe she should try writing them down. She’s conned several companies into publishing her work and adds a new notch on her bedpost each time another story is unleashed onto an unsuspecting universe. A member of the Romance Writers of America and the Rainbow Writers chapter, Shae was first published in 2010 and has a lineup of short stories, novellas, and novels available. When she’s not chained to her laptop, she enjoys cooking, traveling, watching baseball, and reading voraciously. She's also an unapologetic geek girl and an annual volunteer for the Dragon Con on-site publication, the Daily Dragon.

When it comes to relationships, college roommates Greg and Keith are polar opposites. A recovering addict, Greg avoids sex because it’s too closely tied in his mind with the alcohol and drugs he gave up. In contrast, Keith protects his heart by limiting sex to one-night stands and weekend flings.

As the two get to know each other better, they feel drawn together, and slowly they take tentative steps toward something real. Their attraction soon flares hot, but Greg’s fears overwhelm him, sending him running. It’s up to Keith to help Greg learn to trust in himself—and in the way they feel about each other.

Tension sweet tension

The beginning is great, so I'm right into this book. 

Greg and Keith... Both young and already lived a life. 
Both hesitant to start a relationship, therefore, sex is for both an issue, but for completely different reasons. 
Greg struggles with addictions and Keith is protecting his heart.
They both have triggers.... and.....they live in the same room.

Keith is trying to seduce Greg for another of his one (or two) night stand.
The tension between them is strong...I love it.....the more, the better
All the feelings between them I felt it.....all the body language...the faltering, the drooping, the flushed faces, the hitched breath, all those little signals. I loved the bubble.

Finally, they get to know each other a bit, and they really appreciate each other 

The feelings....the build up, the tension and than...

"It might as well have been a firebomb dropped into a drought-stricken forest."

If only it could be that simple...or could it.....they already lived a life

I think Shae Conner did a good job in this short story; it had a good overview, and the feelings like I said before were keenly felt. I personally would have loved some more struggle, I know, I know it's a short.  Overall a good read.
Because of the short, it left me also wanted to know more about them.
