Former mercenary Bull Krebbs now heads up security at his nightclub in Harrisburg, PA. Working the door night after night, he's seen it all. Though tough on the outside, he's a little hurt that people find him unapproachable. Then he pulls a cute twink out of line to perform a random search, and he's surprised when the guy giggles and squirms.
Zach Spencer, graphic artist, twink, and seriously ticklish, isn't intimidated by Bull. He's in awe, and when Bull saves Zach from being trampled on the dance floor, Zach finds his inspiration for the superhero in his graphic novel.
Soon Zach wants more and makes his move by asking Bull on a date. Though small, he has a backbone of steel. He'll need it—their happily ever after is thwarted at every turn, including by Bull's interloping mother showing up unannounced and enemies from Bull's past threatening to pull him to the other side of the world.
Inside out is a light, cute story about two seemingly opposite men falling in love.
Zach is such an adorable cutie <3 I'm pretty he fits the description of a twink perfectly, plus a virgin at that. And he ain't afraid of the big bad Bull! He manages to see past Bull's tough, big and scary front and see the kind and amazing person he is inside. Zach is cute, feisty and witty! What's there not to love <3 I love Zach's outlook on life, despite being through tough times, he knows what he wants and deserves. He wants love, and he will never be anyone's one night stand.
And then we have Bull. Bull is an older alpha male (but of course). He is gruff and intimidating, pushing away everyone that comes near him. But he ain't a match for our cutie Zach who bulldozes his way into Bull's life bringing down his walls along the way.
