    Summary

    Ben Solo thought he was an average guy with an average life, until Poe Dameron crashes at his parents' place for the summer with his friends. Suddenly Ben's life just got a whole lot more interesting as the object of his desire seems hell-bent on breaking down his patience, one flirtatious dimpled smile at a time. A light-hearted summer piece, because I'm not ready for summer to be over yet.

    Summary

    '"This is a tea house, you know." The plummy, ultra-posh voice startled Rey Kenobi from her day-dreaming, almost spilling the scalding hot coffee over her chest.'

    Rey, an American former hacker, turned cyber security expert, has been commissioned by Oxford University to protect their systems from hackers. Unfortunately, she has to work closely with Professor Ben Solo, Merton Professor of English Literature who also happens to be Lord Ben Solo, member of the English peerage. And an unmitigated snob.

    She drinks coffee. He drinks tea. He only reads classic literature. She reads Marvel comics. He is nobility. She is a nobody.

    Things should go swimmingly, shouldn't it?

    Summary

    Really, he should try to be nice to this person. They’re going to be roommates for the summer. Of a sort, anyway. Rey hasn’t done anything wrong, and doesn’t deserve to bear the brunt of his irritation.

    It’s with this thought in mind that Ben gets out of his chair and opens the front door to his parents’ house.

    When he sees Rey, the exchange student staying with this them this summer, standing on the other side of it--when he smells her--he nearly chokes on his tongue.

    ------
    (In which Ben Solo is an Omega, and Rey, the British exchange student staying with his family for the summer is--to everyone’s surprise--an Alpha.)

    Summary

    Rey has been doing fine on her own for years. Her job isn’t fulfilling but it keeps her fed. Her house isn't perfect but it keeps her safe. But after a few things start to change, she slowly starts to realize that she wants more out of her life and maybe even... herself.

    Also, what the hell is up with that hot customer who says she smells obscene? Rude.
