    Summary

    There's a really hot male omega living in the apartment above Steve's, and Steve would really like to get to know him but admittedly he's not the smoothest alpha on the block.

    Then after an incident that leaves Bucky dodging the cops, Steve lets him crash on his couch and suddenly finds himself in a surprise room-mate situation.

    Which is totally, totally fine. Steve can be a good room-mate and not let his enormous crush on Bucky get in the way. Right?

    Summary

    Bucky has found the perfect apartment that is a) close to his bakery, b) within his budget if he gets a roommate, and c) in a less crime-ridden neighborhood than he lives in now. Now he only has two problems. One, his search for a roommate has been unsuccessful thus far. Two, the landlady insists that she will only rent it to a married couple.

    He’s about ready to give up hope, until his most annoying regular from the bakery answers his ad.

    Summary

    Steve Rogers is one of the most sought after Close Protection Agents in the world, with a list of happy and grateful clients longer than his arm. He's smart, professional, and he prides himself on his ability to work with even the most unruly clients. Enter one James Barnes aka The Winter Soldier, a ruthless and merciless hitman whose name is synonymous with fucking your shit up. By the end of his first day Steve's been shot, stabbed, throw out of a window and run over by a very expensive car. It's enough to make anyone want to quit. But Steve has a perfect record and he's not letting anyone, not the mob, not terrorists, not a black helicopter organization bent on recapturing their former operative, fuck with that. He's saving Barnes's life whether the bastard likes it or not.

    Summary

    Bucky has had a rough couple of days, and his mom repeatedly reminding him that he’s destined for spinster-hood (now that he’s 30 and single) is certainly not helping.

    It’s not his fault; he’s clearly waiting for Mr. Right...

    At least that’s what he tells himself every time his mom reminds him to, “Find a nice Beta and settle down.”

    Dating is hard. Dating as an Omega is a little bit harder.
