For Jack Lewis love comes from unexpected places…so does tragedy. When David arrived on Vancouver Island, he was just another tourist looking to charter a boat. A few hours on the water together proves he is more than that. As a world traveler, David is a man of mystery who has been everywhere and seen everything.
Attraction draws them together but an attempt at a meaningless fling fails one touch at a time when Jack feels more than he thought he would. The love affair sparks fear in David and jealousy in Emerson, the man who frequents Jack’s bed in a relationship that is all sex and no soul.
At odds with the men in his life Jack tries to talk David into staying and Emerson into going. The attempt sends things spinning out of control and he struggles with the consequences that could leave him empty handed.
Emerson aimed for alluring and innocent as he lay stretched out on the bed with that look and a pout on his lips. He missed it by several yards but Jack saw no reason to tell him that. He just pulled on his boxers and let that make the statement for him. He could beg if he wanted but it wasn’t going to work.
“Fine,” Emerson huffed and pillowed his head in his arms, turning his face to the wall. “If you’re going to treat me like a whore then I’m not going to bother getting up to make you coffee.”
“I can make my own coffee,” he stepped into his jeans and zipped them. “And I’m not treating you like a whore,” he crouched beside the bed and slid fingers into Emerson’s hair, gripping the strands to tug his head back and kiss the pout.
Emerson tried to turn it into something more but he broke it before he had a chance. He knew that game and like a lot of things, it didn’t work anymore. Over the past year, he’d grown immune to Emerson, to a certain extent, most of the time.
“One of these days I’m going to put my foot down, Jack,” Emerson called after him as he headed for the door. “None of this coming and going whenever you please, bullshit. I deserve better than that.”
“Funny, but I’ve never heard you complain about the coming part,” he tossed him a smile, stepped outside and pulled the door closed on the rest of the argument.
