Em was coming to their house. Should he be thrilled or scared shitless? He'd
wanted her to visit much sooner but he'd always chickened out. Of course,
chickening was still an option. They could play the charming hosts, wine and
dine her, and nothing else. A lot depended on Roan's reaction and Jake's own
courage. Even more depended on Em. He hit the speed dial on his cell phone.
sleepy, silky voice he loved answered. "Are you hurrying home to me, love?
'Cause man have I got a big thing waiting for you."
big was no joke. Blood rushed to Jake's groin, and he was instantly hard. The
man was sex on a stick. He still couldn't believe he'd walked into that hotel
bar just when Roan had been hiding out from his hounds. "Hi, darling. Don't let
that big thing go to sleep before I get there. I'm about twenty minutes away."
heard a lascivious chuckle. "No chance of sleep. I'm keeping it warm for you."
moaned on purpose while Roan laughed.
I have to pull over and jerk off, let me tell you what just happened."
Something sexy, I hope."
mind. Yes, potentially sexy. Emmaline is taking you and me to the Belden Award
dinner on Friday and…wait for it…she's coming home to spend the weekend with
shit! Does she know who 'us' is?"
she knows you're a man, if that's what you mean."
finally. How did this all happen?"
tell you all the details when I get home."
baby, you're not going to be doing any talking when you get home, 'cause your
mouth will be full. So tell me now."
laughed. "Yeah, you're right. Well, short version, she started insisting that I
had to come to the awards dinner and bring my girlfriend."
call me Angelina."
figured, what the hell? I might as well tell her."
know." It had been a huge deal between him and Roan, but he just hadn't been
able to get up the nerve to introduce his lover to his boss. For him it had
been the final statement. Tell her, and he'd have to admit he was gay. It was
easy to do with everyone else. His parents had said they'd already known he was
bisexual, and women hadn't really done it for him for a couple of years when he
met Roan. It had been easy giving up women. All women but one.
purr broke into his reverie. "Awfully quiet, love."
Just thinking. Is it my wishful imagination that she might want more than a
professional partnership with me?"
say for sure, love. But when I meet her I should get some insight."
know it's up to you, right, baby? Just because I think you'll love her doesn't
mean it's true. I know not many women do it for you."
it's some up to me and more up to her."
can't tell you what it means to me that you're open to this. I was pretty
shitty about Alexandra."
chuckled, and the sound shivered right up Jake's spine. "I loved that my
fucking Alex made you green, baby, but I didn't love her. I want you to have
what you love."
feel the same way about you. Nothing gets in the way of us no matter what."
heard the tightness in his lover's voice. "That means everything to me, Jake."
There was a sigh. "But she still turns you on, right?"
laughed. "Like a raging horndog."
the chances are damned good I'll feel the same way. Now, get home here, baby,
and let me show you where you can put that horn."
Jesus, his cock was pressing out of his jeans as his foot slammed the
