The Summer Heat by +Elodie Parkes 
Genre: contemporary erotic menage romance novella



Blurb
When lifelong friends Nate and Evan watch the arrival of a new neighbor, they never expect to find their friendship
rocked by the lovely Annabel.
As they all grow close, will she be forced to choose between these gorgeous men?








The inspiration came from a tree being cut down in the communal gardens where I currently live. I didn’t even see it felled, but I was immensely saddened as this was a healthy young tree. In my story, the gorgeous guys are cutting down a diseased tree in their garden, and that’s how they see Annabel move in next door.

General rating

The Saturday morning sun blazed in
the June sky. Heat shimmered off the sidewalk. Nate and Evan were the only
people out in their front yards. The noise of their work tools were the only
sounds, as not even the seagulls that often wheeled overhead ventured from the
cool of the ocean yet.
Nate and Evan’s house was one of the
largest in the rows of three story houses built along the river in a modern
development unimaginatively called Riverside Mews. Narrow lanes that led to the
river path separated the rows. Somehow, patches of white sand always settled on
the paths, though the nearest beach was a mile away. Each house had its own
river access, through a gate at the end of the back yard to a riverbank public
path, but there was no boat access, no jetties. The public path wound along by the
river from the seaside town close by and on into the countryside. The house to
the right of Nate and Evan’s place was occupied by a small family, but the
house to the left had been empty and for sale all year.
The roar of a large van engine broke
the hot, morning silence as it turned into the street and thumped over each
speed hump in the road, until it drew up in front of the empty house next door.
Nate gave the van a cursory glance,
but Evan leaned on his spade and watched as two men leapt out of each side of
the van. He read the name of a removal firm and their logo emblazoned across
the side of the vehicle and discovered it was from a city in the north of the
state. It piqued his interest, so he continued with his unashamed staring.
The men who’d alighted from the cab
walked to the back of the van and opened its double doors, just as a pale blue,
old model Mustang drove up and parked a short distance away.
A young woman got out of the Mustang.
