Sometimes the only thing that will make a date better is dino nuggets and superheroes.

After one spectacularly disastrous date, all Robyn wants is to ignore the way he’s drawn to the confusing man who leaves him with more questions than answers. However, it seems that fate has other plans when the enigmatic cutie keeps popping up in unexpected places, leaving Robyn with one pressing question…what’s Loki’s real name?
When a first date doesn’t go quite as planned, sometimes a do-over is the next best thing.
There’s more than one reason Hunter is known as Loki at the local coffee shop, and it’s not just because of his love for his favorite cinematic universe. With teasing in his blood and drama as his middle name, Hunter has just one question… is Robyn as uptight as he seems or has Hunter finally met the Daddy of his dreams?
When a teasing flirt meets a confused Daddy, it’s going to take more than just a frustrated barista to bring them together.

Chapter 1


(aka Robyn)

“I don't care if he's an alien or has the most boring kink on the planet. The snark will stop.” Skyler’s stern words ripped through the room, bringing everyone to a standstill.

I'd seen the explosion coming, but I'd thought it would take something worse than Loki ironically calling me riffraff to set Skyler off.

However, as his eyes narrowed and he leaned toward the counter, everyone in the store sucked in a breath. “The only one that gets to insult my customers is me.”

He was fucking serious.

This place got weirder and weirder.

Eventually, I was going to move out to the suburbs where everyone hid their kinks like they had when I’d been living in the country. But since it seemed like the city had to do everything differently, I waited to see what would happen.

Loki—I really wished I could remember his real name—stepped back as his eyes widened.

His voice dropped the flirty edge it usually carried. I hated to admit it, but I liked the soft, warm tone of his natural voice. “He's wearing a suit, Skyler. An expensive one. He fucking knows I was just messing with him.”

I had…and I looked damned good, too. There was no way his comment had been anything but teasing…and maybe an awkward attempt to apologize? So in this situation, I was on the side of the trickster god, not the high-heeled drama queen.

When said drama queen turned to me, I wasn't sure how to defuse the situation. There was a reason I didn't date dramatic anything. I was too boring for that and I knew it. Of course, I forgot that rule every few years, which was how I'd ended up having one too many drinks and going home with the snarky god wannabe.

When Skyler started tapping his foot, I realized I was done with drama for the day.

Maybe for the century.

First politicians and now Loki and Skyler.

I needed a drink, and it was only ten in the morning.

Raising one eyebrow, I crossed my arms over my chest and waited silently until he stopped the annoying, noisy gesture. I might not be the most aggressive Dom, but I wasn’t going to take that much sass from someone who I wasn’t working for or sleeping with.

He must’ve realized he’d crossed the line because he huffed but straightened, and the insanity filling his eyes faded. “I apologize. That was unseemly.”

Fucking right.

“Thank you.” Something about the exchange had Loki going bug-eyed, but I stayed focused on Skyler.

He was clearly the more dangerous predator.

“I’m finding the constant snark and…” He waved his hand between us, searching for the word. “Whatever there is between you two frustrating.”

I agreed.

Clearly I was going to have to move…because it was either that or admit to the snarky trickster god that I couldn’t remember his name, but that I was sorry the one-night stand we’d endured had been so tragically bad.

I’d never gotten in bed with anyone and not managed to make them orgasm.

I’d even managed to get the first girl I’d ever slept with off and I’d been an idiot teenager trying to figure out his sexuality.

Loki’s it’s not you, it’s me speech hadn’t made me feel any better about the whole situation, but he’d seemed sincere in the moment. However, after seeing him in his natural form, full of snark and drama, I was starting to question what I remembered from that night.

Maybe it had been me?

Yep, I was going to move.

There were a few cute small towns within driving distance; it’d be okay. But for now, I had to handle Skyler. “That is understandable. This is your place of business. You get to set the rules and appropriate behaviors, but there are limits to that.”

When he nodded and I was confident I’d made myself clear, I glanced toward the overly complicated coffee machine on the counter. “I’ll get my order to go, please. I should probably work at home today. How much do I owe you?”
