Different rising times affect baking 2 loaves together?

Hello! I'm new here, and returning to bread baking after many years of absence. What got me back to baking was finding the book "Bread in Half the Time" by Eckhardt and Butts. The method the authors use produces a wonderful loaf of bread in just over an hour.

I have a question, though...I want to bake two loaves at once. To do this using the book's method, one loaf will have to rise/rest  6-7 minutes more than the other. Will the different rising/resting times affect the baking when I put the two loaves in the oven together?

Thank you for any help you can give me!
