Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now

When they finally find love, can it survive the scrutiny?



Vincent’s days at work are spent admiring a hot hunk of man flesh named Jason. Unfortunately, Jason is straight—or so Vincent believes. When Jason asks Vincent out to a sporting event, he confesses he’s interested, and Vince has no problem exploring these feelings with Jason. After a night of passion, they decide they’ve held back their true feelings for too long and want to try a committed relationship.

Just as things start to work for them, their boss finds out that they’re gay. He turns them in for on-the-clock PDA and tells their co-workers. Can Vincent and Jason’s relationship hold up against that kind of hatred?


A knock came on the door. I walked over and unlocked the deadbolt. Jason smiled as I opened it. He stepped on the threshold, his brows furrowing the way they always had at work. Something was bothering him.

“We good?” I asked.

He hesitated before answering. “Yeah. Can I talk to you about something?”

“Sure.” I stepped aside to allow him to come in farther. After closing the door, I asked, “What’s up?”

He waited a few seconds, concern warping his gaze. I began to worry.

Jason said, “Look, Vincent, I know you’re gay.”

My teeth chattered while my stomach dropped between my knees. How did he find out? I’d been so careful, always watching my back. My hands shook, my knees wanted to knock so I leaned on one foot, trying to play it cool. “How did … you … umm. Well you see—”

Jason held up his hands in defense. Smiling, he said, “Look, I’m not mad. Actually, I think you’re cute.” He paused. “I’ve always thought something was wrong with me. I love sex, but mostly anal. Women turn me on, but not the way men seem to. Maybe I’m bi? I don’t know. But I want to find out.”

And did I ever want to pull him to my side. I smiled at him, my hands quivering and whispered, “I’ll help you.”

Jason took a step closer. He wrapped his fingers in my hair and pulled me in for a kiss. At first he puckered, unsure of what to do. I led him, kissing his bottom lip gently. He molded his lips to mine, following my lead.

“Want me to help you figure that out?” I opened his mouth with my own, sliding my tongue in. He massaged mine back, licking and playing with it. My body, and my cock, reacted to his touch. I wanted to break away and hug him, maybe jump for joy. But no, I couldn’t. I didn’t want the kiss to end.

Jason let out a small moan and I wanted him even more. Fuck the game, we could do this all night. I slid my hand up to the back of his neck. His hair stood on end. What did this mean? Could he be turned on, too? Or was he mortified?

Jason pulled back, gazing into my eyes. His were wide. He hated it, I could tell. He didn’t want it.

“That was … weird,” he said.

“I’m sorry.”

He smirked. “I didn’t say I didn’t like it.”

My cock twitched with his words. Wow. “That did just happen, didn’t it?”

I’m over at Joyfully Jay!


Today, I’m over at Joyfully Jay’s as part of the Joyful Approach countdown to GayRomLit. I’m talking about tropes and how I like to use and twiiiist them all up.

If you comment (over there), there’s a chance to win a $15 gift card to Amazon or All Romance Ebooks, too!

Whew. I have been very busy in real life, which is why I’ve been so absent on my blog. Short form, the small company I work for was acquired by a huge huge company (I went from having 70 co-workers to more than 50,000), so things have been a bit busy at the day job.

I am just about finished with a M/M contemporary novella, which (ironically) has the working title of Acquisition and Merger and I’ve started overhauling a fantasy novel, based on my agent’s feedback. Then it’s back to more Close Quarter books! (I do promise there’s more!)

I have some great guest posts and give-aways coming up this weekend, and more posts from me later this coming week, so please stick around.

WIP Wednesday: Need to Think

*taps mic* This thing still on? *cough*

A glance at the alarm clock told Michael they still had a while before they needed to be up, even if they were to go fetch good coffee. He pulled back the covers a bit. “Come back to bed.”

Sam’s expression was akin to the rest of him, relaxed and sleepy, but he shook his head. “Need to think.”

The ice that had melted away returned to grip Michael’s heart harder. “About what?” He already knew the answer.

Sam didn’t frown, not quite, but his posture, the whole of his body seemed to twist then still, but not into relaxation. “This,” he whispered. “Us.”
