Love is a dangerous emotion that EMT Jared won’t risk. But it looks as though a sweet and sexy National Guardsman is about to make him wish for that—and much more.
EMT Jared Li loves his job, his friends and clubbing. There’s nothing like a night of fun getting glammed up, throwing on some heels and shaking his ass to the latest Britney tune. Life is all about having a good time with as many hot guys as possible.
Dan Harrison has been in the National Guard for about six months and out for not much longer than that. At twenty-two, he’s somewhat innocent, a little shy and not interested in meaningless hook-ups. One night at a karaoke bar changes everything for him when his fellow Guardsman Joseph introduces him to his friend Jared. Dan’s never met anyone like the luscious twink who’s filled with so much life and laughter.
A night of passion shakes them to their very cores. Jared really likes Dan, but doesn’t want to get caught up in any type of exclusive thing. Dan wishes there could be more between them, but is willing just to be friends in order to remain near the androgynous stunner.
Hanging out strictly as friends proves to be almost impossible for them both. Not only does Jared continuously lust after the muscular soldier, but he’s also falling for the caring and compassionate man. Dan’s every sex fantasy stars Jared in one of his daring club outfits, but his heart is what really matters and it’s already been lost to Jared.
A traumatic event breaks down the barriers between them and gives them the chance to be together the way they both want. But after Dan is called up by the Guard to assist at a natural disaster, the same bravery that Jared admires in Dan might be the final thing that separates them forever.
They ground into one another, the rough fabric of their jeans a frustrating obstacle to what he sought. Jared broke their kiss, gulping in air. Dan missed the candy of his mouth immediately. He yanked Jared’s head back, baring his throat, nipping and sucking at his skin. He licked his way up to the sensitive spot behind Jared’s ear then suckled that lobe of flesh into his mouth, scraping it with his teeth then soothing it with his tongue. His angel moaned—made noises Dan had never heard before but only wanted to hear from then on.
Everything about Jared sounded, felt, tasted and smelled right. It was exactly what he’d fantasized about once he’d let himself wish for a man of his own. The heat building between their bodies had Dan sweating, wanting his clothes off, needing Jared’s off. He reluctantly disentangled himself from Jared’s hair to push at the man’s blazer, trying to get it off his shoulders. Jared grabbed his arm, bringing Dan’s wrist to his mouth, kissing the inside of it and peering at him through his long lashes.
“We’re going to need what I have in my pocket.” He paused as if waiting for Dan’s reaction. “Unless you have supplies?”
It hit him what Jared meant and served as a reminder as to how inexperienced he was. Thankfully, his tremendous longing seemed to be guiding him well otherwise.
“Uh, no. I mean, that’s great. You, uh…”
Jared took Dan’s face between his hands and kissed him deeply again. There was less desperation, but the hunger between them was still sharp. When he pulled away, his hand dropped to Dan’s, and he clasped their fingers together. An expression of unconcealed lust radiated from Jared’s eyes and for the first time Dan felt wanted. Desired.
“Is that your bedroom through there?”
Pssttt scavenger hunt hint:
Fact #2 - Even though EMT Jared Li is in his late twenties, he’d rather go to the club than settle down with one guy.

When not indulging in her obsession for books, she loves the outdoors, film and music. The Pacific Northwest is the ideal spot to enjoy both hiking and beachcombing. Once upon a time she was the singer in an indie rock band that toured the West Coast and charted on U.S. college radio. She now resides on the northern coast of Oregon, where the constant rain and fog remind her of visits to family in England and Scotland when she was a child.
She is currently working on a new series about men in uniform entitled Sin City Uniforms and a BDSM spin-off to the Gin & Jazz series entitled The Hampton Road Club.
