Excerpt

“Seriously?” Rhett browsed the responses to his online ad about a one-nighter for Valentine’s Day and saw nothing that remotely interested him. “Geez, perhaps I should just−”

“Give it up, Rhett!” Matt yelled from across the room and threw a piece of paper at him. “I don’t know why you continuously look through those online personals. You won’t find love that way.”

Rhett turned up his lips in disgust and groaned inwardly. He loved his best friend and roomie like a brother but hated he was such a know-it-all. “And how do you know? Just because you went the traditional route and met Mr. Wonderful at the gym, doesn’t mean anything. Besides, I’m not looking for the perfect lover, just the perfect lay,” he laughed. “A date and a good sex partner for Valentine’s Day.”

“I get it, and I still don’t understand why you waste your time doing it online. You might as well advertise it on the street corner wearing nothing but an overcoat. When a good looking man walks by, flash ‘em and show off your best assets.”

“Shaddup,” Rhett tossed a pencil at him. “The internet is helpful when finding just about everything else. Why not this? I mean…” he propped his feet on top of the desk and leaned back in his chair. “Why shouldn’t I give it a shot? I’ve met nice guys online before−”

“And you’re still single.” Matt retorted, turning to face him from his Lazy Boy recliner.

“Because I want to be,” Rhett added with a smile. “I don’t want anyone at work to know until I’m ready to settle down. For now, I’m happy with the random hookups. It’s easier to keep it hidden that way, since I work at the firm.”

“Yeah, yeah, like they care about your orientation. I told you, I don’t know what you’re so worried about. You’re the IT guy, not the head of anything. You can get away with being gay. No one asks you anything other than how to fix their computer and get rid of viruses.”

“But what if the conversation turns into, who’s the person you’re seeing? Then I’m forced to answer questions. At least now I only say, ‘no one special’, which leaves it totally open. It means I’m available.”

“And they assume you’re straight, which you’re not.”

“That’s okay too, because I never get into specifics with them. If I start acting all giddy and stuff, they’ll suspect something. I can’t have that, Matt. I just want a temporary date for the night, someone I can bring home, eat breakfast with, and kick out in the morning.”

“Makes for a lonely night, Rhett. Very lonely. Valentine’s Day should be for lovers, or at least people who are seeking that. You can do the hook ups any time of the month.”

“Yeah, but−well, heck, I need something to do that night, okay? You’ll be out with your man, and I’ll be stuck here alone. I just want company, that’s all.”

“I get it,” Matt sighed and shook his head as if he pitied Rhett’s situation. He got up and clicked his teeth, while he grabbed his empty glass. “If you ask me, I think you need a full-time lover in your life. Deep down you want that relationship and perhaps you’re too scared, or too lazy, to look. Wanting a one-nighter is a cop out.”

“No it’s not. Like I said, I’m just not ready for the emotional hang-ups that come with a relationship. Putting my heart out there to get stepped on isn’t something I want to experience.”

Matt stopped a moment before walking out the room. “Have you ever been in love? I mean, we’ve only known one another since high school. Then, you were such a nerd and cared little to nothing about boys or girls. You only wanted to sit at home, play video games, or work on your computer.”

Rhett sat up straight and looked away a moment while drawing up his lips. He bit the bottom one until it hurt.

Rhett wanted to answer Matt’s question, but he knew it would sound really stupid. The first boy I ever saw, I fell in love with. Darren was his first name. The young boy’s last name escaped him, but he recalled that taut body that looked good even in seventh grade. The boy was an athlete with exceptional skills in almost every sport; he was smart and fine. Caramel colored skin just like his favorite candy bar, Twix, light brown eyes, bushy black eyebrows, and a perfectly chiseled face that resembled a movie star. Mmph. Was it wrong to get horny just thinking about a preteen boy he knew almost eleven years ago?

“I’m waiting, Rhett!” Matt stood there, arms crossed and tapping his feet, patiently awaiting Rhett’s response.

Rhett hesitated. “No.” He just couldn’t endure the ridicule from his best friend. He could hear it now. You fell in love with a boy in elementary school? Rhett knew it sounded silly too, but his heart was crushed that day at the Valentine’s Day party.  Boldly, Rhett gave Darren a Valentine’s Day card and when Darren saw it, he chuckled and made fun of it. Rhett would never forget the look on his face and the way the other kids laughed, teasing him about asking Darren on a date. Just one of the reasons he didn’t want to come out of the closet. Since then, he’d never taken teasing very well. “I haven’t. Like I said, I’m afraid of getting hurt.”

 

Rhett3 Here is my Flashback this week. I Love You Rhett Vorhees! I love this cute little story.

Oldie but Goodie The Odd Couple by BL

BLMorticia Erotica With Snark

OC And now an excerpt!

Blurb:

Unlike the popular bank, Chase Whittaker has no money. However, living on the northwest side of Chicago in a rundown building with no car, and no savings hasn’t made him totally undesirable. His good looks and charm make up for everything he seems to lack. Still, it’s not enough to stop his landlord from threatening to sell the building where he owns the store his grandfather opened.

Micah Strickland is the child of famous football player Thomas Strickland and a ghostwriter. Though he’s never hurting for money, He can’t seem to find a man who wants the same things he does. Insecurities about being accepted as a gay and black man also prohibit him from being happy. He does everything to prove he fits in and even after all that, Micah hasn’t found anyone who’s interested in a committed relationship.

When Micah visits Chase’s…

Overall Blurb:

Love sees through all differences and no matter what the situation it can strike the heart of any soul at any given time.

Simple delicacies like donuts and coffee can bring two people together no matter what their differences and when love comes into play, it can make for a very satisfying experience.

In these two stories, Cupid shoots his arrows at four men, drawing them to one another through chance encounters that instantly grow into something more.

Smooth Like Latte

Blurb:

Brendan Walsh likes money and because of this, he is willing to deal with his irrational, homophobic dad who has threatened to disown him if he comes out gay to the world. This puts Brendan on edge and alert at all times, leaving little to no time for him to build a steady relationship with anyone.

Davori “Latte” Jenkins is a happy go lucky barista working in the Walsh building. Born and raised in North Carolina, Latte possesses extremely good looks and charms the pants off anyone in his path using his Southern boy attitude.

When Brendan visits the shop Latte works in, they’re immediately drawn to one another. Latte makes him a caramel latte with something extra and because Brendan isn’t out of the closet, they keep their thoughts and flirtations silent. Once they start dating, Brendan gets the courage to come out publicly and the relationship goes into overdrive. Still, Latte desires something more to define their relationship.

Excerpt

“You have a good one.” Latte placed another coffee on the top and smiled at the next. “Miss Laura, is it? Tall caramel latte, extra sugar, no cream.”

“You got it.” She laughed. “How the hell do you memorize all these orders?”

Latte shrugged. “Just doing my job, ma’am.” He wrote her name on the cup and filled it with hot water. While he grabbed the milk, he looked over at Brendan Walsh, still giving him the side eye.

Baby.

“Where have you been all my life,” he mouthed to himself and clapped his hands. “Mr. Owens, having the same today? Tall hazelnut, no sugar, three creams?”

“I sure am.”

Pleased his memory still worked through distractions, Latte moved to the back and finished the other customer’s drink.

Derrick came up beside him and nudged his side. “Well, Latte, looks like you got an admirer. I still don’t get how you’re into hairy chests and balls with all this good-looking women practically giving you their panties, but what do I know?”

“Exactly. Nothing.” He chuckled and finished grabbing cream from the fridge. “Come on, Derrick, you gotta admit he’s gorgeous. Look at him. Tall, reddish brown hair, beautiful hazel eyes, and I can tell even from under that coat, the man takes good care of himself.”

“Yuck, just go after him already.” Derrick made a face and turned away.

Latte laughed. “I wish I could.” He headed back up to the counter, finishing Mr. Owens’s coffee. “Here you go, Mr. Owens. You have a nice one.” Latte placed it in front of him and shifted his focus back to Brendan who was still talking with Cathy but eyeing Latte, too.

Much to his delight, Latte noticed the line was a lot shorter now, but a few of his regulars still needed their beverages. “Um, Miss Lisa, give me a sec, alright?” Latte wiped his apron and headed over to where Cathy and Brendan were standing. “Everything good with the drink?”

“Oh yeah, he was just…” Cathy blushed.

“It’s excellent, Latte. The best macchiato I’ve had in a long time, thank you.” Brendan’s slim lips curled into a smile.

Latte wished they were alone because he could tell Brendan didn’t like flirting in public. “Um, good. Thanks for the tip, too. Perhaps you should come down and see us more often.”

“I should and I will. Promise me you’ll be here to make it every morning, and I’ll make a regular appearance.” Brendan held up his cup in toast. “Come visit me,” Brendan mouthed and handed him a card.

“I hope so and I’ll see you around then.” Latte backed away and went back to his customers, trying to forget the hot man standing there staring him down.

Regardless, he got the message. Brendan was indeed interested in talking to him, but wasn’t keen on making his personal business public. Latte could certainly understand, being from the South where he had to hide in the shadows almost every day of his life.

Now that he moved up to Chicago, he expected to live life outside of the closet and wanted a partner willing to do the same thing.

MochacoverHere’s a snippet from Time to Make the Donuts

Overall Blurb:

Love sees through all differences and no matter what the situation it can strike the heart of any soul at any given time.

Simple delicacies like donuts and coffee can bring two people together no matter what their differences and when love comes into play, it can make for a very satisfying experience.

In these two stories, Cupid shoots his arrows at four men, drawing them to one another through chance encounters that instantly grow into something more.

Time to Make the Donuts

Blurb: Christopher Wettlon has inherited his grandfather’s Donuts to Go shop. He’s young, degreed, pretty well off, but still there is something missing from his life.

Enter Andre Bentley who seems to have everything going for him and Chris notices this right away. The two exchange smiles when Andre walks into his shop, but little does Christopher know Andre is out for more than his fresh, strawberry creams.

The two men are getting along well until Chris confronts Andre about his job, but instead of getting overly upset, Christopher makes his new man “work” to gain back his trust.

Excerpt

Andre studied the little shop that Latasha and Rick had their eyes on. Donuts to Go was cozy, intimate, a spot for people who liked old-fashioned goodness instead of stuffy, corporate restaurants. The long off-white laminate counter with black stools reminded Andre of one of those places in old movies.

There was an open space at the end where people picked up their donuts and coffee, leading out to the small dining room lined with picturesque windows, flanked by small booths. If anything, it held an alternative feel, which the trendy people living in and around Lakeview seemed to love.

“Sir, excuse me, what would you like today?” A female voice interrupted his line of thinking.

“Um, hi, I’ll take three chocolate, three glazed, two jelly…” Andre tried to remember exactly how many people were working in the office today. “Oh, and the strawberry—”

“A fresh batch is ready right now, sir. Would you like a carton of coffee with that, too?”

Andre looked up, meeting the owner’s light hazel eyes. “Um, yeah, I’d love some hazelnut? And thanks for offering a fresh batch. Boss lady loves strawberry.”

“Yeah? And which one do you love?”

Andre swiped his tongue over his lips, ogling the hottest man he’d seen in quite some time. The picture of Chris Wettlon did him no justice. He chuckled, “I prefer bagels myself.”

“Oh yeah? Cinnamon raisin, egg…”

“I love a plain bagel with cream cheese.”

“Booring…” Chris turned around, grabbing a couple and throwing them in a bag.

Andre nibbled on his bottom lip, watching Chris’s plump ass through the khaki pants.

“Damn.” He looked away just before Chris turned back around to meet his gaze.

“What kind of cream cheese?”

“Plain…”

“Again, so boring.”

“What can I say, I’m a simpleton.” Andre laughed, rubbing his hands together.

“You don’t appear to be that simple, but you know what they say, looks can be deceiving. Anything else I can get you?”

Since the flirtation was on, Andre decided to play along. “Your name and maybe even your phone number?”

Chris grinned and offered his hand. “I’m Chris Wettlon, and I don’t give out my phone number to just anyone.”

The other two people behind the counter giggled while bagging Andre’s order.

Andre accepted the gesture. The warmth of Chris’s hands gave him goose bumps. “Andre Bentley, and I can give you mine, then.”

“Wonderful.” Chris placed the bags in front of him and grabbed his phone from his side.

Andre let go of his hand and took the cell phone. He punched in his numbers and handed it back. “There. Call me?”

“Sure. Would this evening be good?”

“Yes, it would be. I’ll be home around six, waiting for the phone to ring.”

Chris smiled and put his phone up to his ear.

Andre’s phone rang and he picked it up. “Cool. I’ll talk to you tonight, Mr. Wettlon.”

“Chris works. We don’t have to be so formal.”

“No, I suppose we don’t. Call me Dre then.”

“All right. Thanks for stopping in.”

“Okay, enough drooling over each other. Chris, we got a line forming.” A bulky redhead woman interrupted then, slapping Chris on the back.

“Yes, we do. You take care of yourself.” Chris winked.

“You too.” Andre returned the gesture and picked up his bags, leaving with a big grin on his face.
