I’m going to give you the line from the books I’ve read that make my mind crave the rest like chocolate & Coke.
Shep took several steps back and fell into one of the brown leather club chairs. “I knew you were too young to know what you wanted. I’m just next in line for you.” Shep buried his face in his hands. “I tried to wait. I wanted you to get every other man out of your system before committing to me.”

Out of the Shadow by Carol Lynne
(Cattle Valley #6)
First Published August 2008 by totally bound
When Shepard Black left the rodeo circuit, he thought his days of lusting after young cowboys were over. Now owner of the Backbreaker Ranch, Shep raises mean spirited bulls like the ones that used to toss him around the arena. It's a challenge, but he never imagined his best friend's son, Jeremy, would prove to be his toughest one yet. Watching Jeremy's long legs wrap around a bucking bull gives Shep too many ideas for comfort. Even worse, Jeremy seems to know exactly the affect he's having on his boss and teacher.
When Jeremy asks Shep to help him train for the upcoming Cattle Valley Rodeo Days, he has two goals in mind. To spend time with the man he's lusted after since he was a teenager and to beat his father. He's been through hell as the son of the reigning National Champion, and he wants his dad to have a taste of his own medicine. He might just get a taste of what he's longed for all this time, too.
