Grayson Black has never forgiven himself for not saving his identical twin brother, Jet, from a savage beating at their father’s hands ten years ago. Jet’s near-death never would have happened if Gray hadn’t been so focused on his boyfriend at the time. He has sworn to take care of his brother ever since. Gray can’t afford a distraction from his self-imposed mission, the type of distraction presented by the gorgeous blond showing up at their gigs.
Kris Larson is a firefighter with the San Francisco Fire Department. Since splitting from his girlfriend, his favorite way to spend nights off is watching the Black Brothers play in the bars of the Bay Area, especially the guitarist. But it’s not until the brothers are left homeless after a fire at their apartment building that Kris has the opportunity to know the real person behind the brooding façade.
Gray fights his attraction to Kris, but with a meddlesome twin who just wants him to be happy, it’s a losing battle. Before Gray and Kris can have a lasting relationship, though, Gray must learn to forgive himself, let go of the past, and lay more than one demon to rest. EXCLUSIVE EXCERPT:
Our eyes locked, and I was lost. I fell into Gray’s inky black stare as everything around me went silent, drowned out by the roar of blood rushing through my ears. With my heart hammering in my throat and my mouth as dry as the desert, I had difficulty swallowing. I watched as Gray’s gaze followed the bob of my Adam’s apple, then made its way up to my mouth. I licked my bottom lip, just to make sure what I was seeing wasn’t my imagination, and sure enough, Gray’s breath hitched as his eyes followed the movement of my tongue.
I moved slowly, not wanting to startle him, as I placed my hands gently on his cheeks, cupping his face. Our gazes locked once more, and I knew this was going to make or break us. Gray’s eyes were full of desire and want, but there was a little bit of fear in them too. I just hoped the desire and want were more powerful.
I rubbed the pad of my thumb over Gray’s cheek, stopping his words. Moving my face closer, our lips inches apart, our breath mingled. Gray wasn’t moving toward me, but he wasn’t moving away either. If I wanted to kiss him, and god knew I did, he wasn’t going to meet me halfway—I’d have to take what I wanted.
Gray closed his eyes as I pressed my lips to his. The kiss was chaste and sweet, but Gray stiffened, his muscles turning rigid.
Maybe he didn’t want this after all. Maybe I read him wrong. My heart shrunk within my tightening chest. I’d fucked it all up, pushing Gray for something he either wasn’t ready for or didn’t want at all.
Dropping my hands, I let out a quiet sigh. “I’m sor—” Before I could finish my apology, I had a lap full of Gray. He launched himself at me and took my mouth in the hottest kiss I’d ever had. It was dominant and forceful as his tongue danced with mine, yet it was also tender and sweet. It felt like he was pouring himself into me, as though all the words he couldn’t say, he said with that kiss.
RJ started as a reader and eventually made the progression to reviewing. It wasn't until two men popped into her thoughts, insisting on telling her their story that she started to write. It started with one scene. A hot and dirty one in the shower.
RJ's initial thought was if she could write their scene then they'd shut up and allow her to concentrate on other aspects of the day. That shower scene was 3000 words long and three hours of work. But they didn't shut up. They told her their entire story and she didn't sleep for days. Sometimes she couldn't keep up with what they were telling her and she had to keep a notebook by the bed.
Whilst RJ was writing their story a side character decided he needed his story told too. Then other characters followed suit.
You see the problem? If RJ ever wants to sleep again then she needs to write.
RJ is a wife and a mother to two boys. Even her dog is a boy.
She is surrounded by males.
RJ writes emotionally charged, character driven romances. Her guys will always get their HEA, but it will never be easy.
