Roommate Not Wanted

I’m a forty-year-old homeowner and former detective. My friends think a roommate is the solution to my recent funk, but I know that’s the last thing I need.

And even if they’re right, sharing my home with Cal is a bad idea. The prickly SEAL rescue diver has muscles for miles, haunted eyes, a wounded soul, and wandering feet that won’t be happy for long in Safe Harbor. Yet those fathoms-deep blue eyes have me making an offer I’ll surely regret.

Our arrangement may be doomed, but Cal is an amazing roommate. We’re soon cooking my mom’s favorite recipes, watching terrible TV, accidentally cuddling, and trying not to cross the line from friendship to fling.
Until I discover Cal’s sexy secret.

Boundaries blur, and I forget I’m not supposed to fall for Cal. Every kiss, touch, and discovery we make together pulls us deeper until there’s no denying our feelings.

I want nothing more than to keep Cal in town, in my bed, and in my heart, but Cal seems destined to swim back to his solo ways.

Can I bear to let him go, or will our love make him stay forever?

MAKE ME STAY is a hurt/comfort roommates-to-lovers MM romance. It features two mature, wounded heroes, disability rep, a proud pansexual, a SEAL having a demisexual awakening, and sexy discoveries involving rope. Deep feels, dual point-of-view, and big fluffy HEA guaranteed.

Kara's Review

5 out of 5 stars

Make Me Stay is the second book in the Safe Harbor series by Annabeth Albert. I love Annabeth and her books and I’m loving this series. We already know and love Holden and I couldn’t love his story more if I tried! He’s the class clown, the friend quick with a joke. He was also injured on the job and is in a wheelchair. He’s a professor with a popular podcast and an all-around nice freaking guy! Cal, and ex SEAL is called in to help with the case. He’s an expert diver and a grumpy, broody man. Holden and Cal don’t get off on the right foot, but after a small accident, Cal needs a place to stay and Holden has an extra room. They couldn’t be more opposite, but sometime between sharing a meal and a bad reality TV dating show, they get closer. One chance encounter with some rope (hottest scene I’ve read in a long time) and they strike a deal. Cal needs a certain something in the bedroom and Holden is the perfect man to help him with his desires. Cal never thought he like being told what to do so much. He just wants out of his own head. His past is haunting him and Holden makes him forget. Holden can’t believe his luck. The sexiest man he’s ever met wants him for him. Sees past the chair and the jokes and wants just the man. Cal’s just in town temporarily, but desperately wants a home and family but doesn’t know how to ask for it. Holden wants Cal to stay, but is afraid to ask in case he says no. Will they both admit how they feel before it’s too late? I freaking loved this story! It’s funny, sexy, and sweet. Full of real emotions, friendship, pain, sadness, hope and love. I’ve really connected to Monroe, Knox, Holden and Call and I can’t wait for Sam and Worth’s story!
