Jared Leon doesn’t reminisce about his former career as an underwear model. The mechanic is still trying to get past his chaotic divorce. A trip is just what he needs to help him focus on his future, and who better to share it with than his best friend Aidan.

They travel to Alaska for some manly fun in the brisk weather, but Jared didn’t know just how manly the fun would get. Aidan believes he’s straight and that thought comes into question when Jared shows him just how good it could feel in his arms. But Jared isn’t ready to admit he’s gay.

With some help, Aidan and Jared soon decide to give their friendship a much needed overhaul.

A Big Hunk O' Love is part of the Working Stiffs series. Jared had me questioning just how deep his feelings for Aidan go a few times. His uncertainty pushed him to perform a few acts that seemed excessive and would have made a lesser man promptly book passage on the next thing smoking in a rush to get home.

Aidan isn’t a pushover and is willing to do whatever is necessary to get Jared to open his eyes and see him as more than just his best friend. Hunter Raines’ Alaskan setting is perfect for this story. It’s romantic and semi secluded. This short story was a nice read, and I’m looking forward to more of the tales in the series.
