A man discovers that love can show up when you least expect it—and in a much different form—in this piping-hot romance from the author of Due Diligence and Just Business.
Brian Keppler, owner of Ground N’At, the coffee shop beneath SR Anderson Consulting, doesn’t have time for a relationship. His most recent girlfriend broke up with him because he’d become married to his shop, which is falling apart without his favorite barista, Justin
As he struggles to stay afloat, the arrival of handsome British high-tech whiz Robert Ancroft becomes another complication. Rob quickly becomes a fixture at the shop with his sharp wit and easy charm, and Brian soon finds himself looking forward more and more to Rob’s visits—to the point where his heart skips a beat when he walks in.
But will Brian be able to come to terms with his previously unexplored sexual identity and find happiness now that he has a chance?
Anna Zabo is here to talk about her upcoming book Daily Grind and she has brought an excerpt to share with us and a little background on how Brian ended up with his own book! Welcome Anna!!
I didn’t intend for Brian to have a book. He was in Just Business to be Justin’s coffee shop boss, nothing more. A minor character. Then he saw Justin in his suit after Justin’s fateful interview that landed him the job with Sam, and I realized Brian was a bit like I used to be—seemingly straight on the outside but so so so so so not on the inside, with a ton of uncertainty and self-doubt to break through.
Sometimes, what it takes is getting to the age where you stop caring about what other people think because life’s too short. Sometimes it takes meeting the person who takes your breath away and makes your heart soar. Sometimes, you get both at the same time.
That’s what happened to me, and that’s what happens to Brian.
Daily Grind is still in editing, so fair warning that this excerpt will probably change a bit before the final version, but here’s the opening to the novel…and the meet cute between
