When everything happens Out of the Blue…
Lt Cameron Cooper has been with the San Francisco Fire Department for fifteen years. He’s seen and dealt with a lot of horrifying situations. He’s always considered himself mentally tough, but when he attends a multi-vehicle accident and sees a dead boy with features remarkably similar to his long-time boyfriend, his mental health takes a hit.
All Jake Montgomery wants is to propose to his boyfriend on their ten-year anniversary. He’s already bought the perfect rings, but when Cameron struggles to look at him after a tragic accident, he has doubts about their future. Cam is withdrawing, and Jake doesn’t know why.
With heated arguments and cold shoulders, Cam and Jake’s life starts to fall apart. Just when Cam thinks he can overcome his issues and finally talk to Jake, memories from Jake’s past threaten to push them apart forever.
It was late in the evening when we arrived at our apartment, and Cam was nervously licking his upper lip. He was obviously unsure about us and how to proceed, since up to that point we hadn’t shared more than a brief kiss in months. It was time to alleviate my Romeo’s fears.
I needed him. More than ever.
After closing the front door behind us, I grabbed his upper arms and turned him to me. Cradling his face in my hands, I looked into his warm amber eyes and saw all the love and affection that was always there, only magnified.
Bringing our lips together, I kissed him deeply. And it was everything. Every tangled emotion from the past six months, the anger, the hurt, the sense of betrayal, the overwhelming sadness, I poured all of it into that kiss, letting it go. But there was also a deep sense of adoration, happiness and a sense of completion that was just as present.
It was absolute. It was us.
We broke apart reluctantly when the need for air became too great, and I pulled back to see my tears reflected on Cam’s cheeks. Cam threw his arms around me and buried his face in my shoulder. He sobbed in silence.
I wrapped my arms around his shoulders and hugged him. “Take me to bed, Romeo.”
Cam lifted his head and looked at me, his glassy eyes full of questions.
“Take me to bed,” I stated again.
Cam took my hand and led me to our bedroom. He licked his lip as we stood next to the bed, feeling like teenagers about to embark on their first sexual experience. I grinned.
Cam cradled my cheek with one hand, rubbing his thumb over my stubble. I turned my face and I kissed his palm. “Are you sure?” he asked, his eyes searching mine.
“Never more sure.”
I brought our lips together and kissed him hard. I needed this. I needed him.
About the Author:
I started as a reader and eventually made the progression to reviewing. It wasn’t until two men pop into my thoughts, insisting on telling me their story that I started to write. It started with one scene. A hot and dirty one in the shower.
My initial thought was if I could write their scene then they’d shut up and allow me to concentrate on other aspects of my day. That shower scene was 3000 words long and three hours of work. But they didn’t shut up. They told me their entire story and I didn’t sleep for days. Sometimes I couldn’t keep up with what they were telling me and I had to keep a notebook by my bed.
Whilst I was writing their story a side character decided he needed his story told too. Then other characters followed suit.
You see the problem? If I ever want to sleep again then I need to write.
I’m a wife and a mother to two boys. Even my dog is a boy.
I am surrounded by males.
