Xander, best friend of Aaron’s older brother Eddie, left small town Cedar City for New York as soon as he possibly could after leaving school. All he remembered of Eddie’s kid brother was a scrawny little kid who tagged along behind them wherever they went. Ten years later, when Aaron runs into the firehouse shower room to let them know the heavens had opened up, the man that gives him the news is no longer little or scrawny.


Aaron has never left Cedar City, and while he is not living the life he would have liked, he makes the best of his situation. He has family, friends, a job and his second love, firefighting. When his first love, Xander, not only returns, but confesses to being attracted to him, he quickly accepts whatever he can get of the little time that he has left in Cedar City.

Things progress better than either anticipates, but the road to true love is never smooth, and the fly in the ointment comes in the shape of Aaron’s brother and Xander’s ex-best friend.

CALENDAR BOYS - AUGUST: SCORCHED is as hot as August is, and from the beginning of this book the sexual tension holds you and never lets you go.

This is a beautifully penned story that deals with small town living and its prejudices. Both Xander and Aaron know that determination and sacrifices are needed in abundance in order to make the relationship work; not only do they have irate family members to deal with, but they also know they cannot continue to live in small town Cedar City.

Jamie Craig has once again given us two men who find the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, but not before the long lonely journey of getting there.
