Thank you for joining me to celebrate the release of my newest m/m sports romance, The Nature of the Game, and thank you to Erotica for All for having me!
The Nature of the Game is a second chance romance. Six years ago, the main characters—Ash and Dan—were in a relationship that didn’t end well. They haven’t spoken since then and now, all of a sudden, they’re back in each other’s lives.
Today, I’m sharing a NSFW exclusive excerpt. Check it out below!
“Feel like kissing me again?” Dan asked, and he moved in, anticipating Ash’s response.
“Uh-huh.” Ash kissed him once, fast and hard, and stood in one smooth motion, hands going to Dan’s ass. “Feel like doing more than that.”
They were shirtless by the time they reached the bedroom.
Pantsless by the time Dan shoved Ash onto the bed.
Completely nude four seconds later.
Ash lay down and Dan straddled him, bringing their mouths together again. Ash had surprisingly fine chest hair between his pecs and a trail that led to his crotch.
“How is it,” Dan said, trailing his lips down Ash’s throat to the vulnerable area between his neck and shoulder, “that your chest hair is still brown?”
Ash hissed when Dan bit his nipple, hands clamping onto Dan’s butt. “I don’t really think about the logistics of it.”
They shouldn’t do this. Nothing had been resolved between them. But Ash flipped them over, spreading Dan’s legs apart and settling between them, licking a fiery path from Dan’s navel to his crotch, winding his tongue around the tip of Dan’s cock, and—
“Fuck, Ash. Please.”
Dan fisted the bedcover and held on for the ride.
It took all of his strength to keep his hips from gyrating, from fucking himself into Ash’s mouth when Ash swallowed him, sucking and sucking, and it had been so long, so long between them, that Dan was close to coming but he didn’t want to, not yet.
“Ash.” He tugged on Ash’s hair. “Ash, please. Please.”
“So impatient,” Ash said, crawling back up Dan’s body, hands running up Dan’s sides, making Dan giggle helplessly. “Still ticklish.”
Dan scowled at Ash’s smirk. “Don’t even think about it. Tell me you have stuff.”
“I have stuff.”
Ash reached into the nightstand and Dan groaned at the full-body contact. Ash was hard and built and hard and so warm and hard and his skin was damp with sweat. Did he mention hard? Dan was six years starved for Ash’s touch, Ash’s attention. The small niggle at the back of his mind that warned him that this was going to blow up in his face wouldn’t go away, but as Ash found the lube and a condom and started to prep him, Dan found himself uncaring of anything that might happen past this moment.
He was a sobbing mess, hips unable to remain still, flushed and overheated, by the time Ash finished prepping him and was putting on a condom.
“Now, Ash, now, now.”
Ash’s hands trembled as he widened Dan’s thighs and lined himself up, pushing in slowly, so slowly. Fully seated, Dan held his arms out and Ash fell on top of him, bracing himself on his arms.
Gazes met. There was desire in Ash’s eyes and pleasure and . . . fear? Before Dan could decipher it, Ash ducked his head, bit Dan’s collarbone, and said, “Can I?”
And then he moved.
He’d forgotten. Dan had completely forgotten what being with Ash was like. Or, if not forgotten, then he’d muted the knowledge. Being with Ash was equal parts amazing and terrifying.
Amazing—it felt like his entire body was going to come apart, his belly clenching, his heart pummeling his ribs, his hands urging Ash faster and faster, his skin hypersensitive, his nerves tingling . . . he was consumed with Ash.
Terrifying—the past collided with the present, and for one moment, one overwhelming moment, he couldn’t tell where he was, when he was. It didn’t matter, though. None of it mattered. Ash was finally opening up to him—if only with his body—and Dan gave him everything in return.
“I love you. I love you.”
Ash didn’t appear to have heard. He kept pumping, swearing against Dan’s neck, straining. Dan carded his fingers through his hair. “Come inside me,” he whispered in Ash’s ear.
“Fuck, Dan, gotta…”
“Yes, do it.”
Dan grabbed his own cock as Ash went rigid above him and groaned, limbs shaking. Watching Ash fly off the handle was better than any external stimulation, and Dan came right behind Ash.
I hope you enjoyed this sneak peek! The Nature of the Game is out now and is available for purchase at Amazon, iBooks, B&N, and Kobo.
Six years ago, an ultimatum forced Dan Greyson to make a choice that cost him everything he loved most. One of those things? His boyfriend, hockey player Ashton Yager. Now that they’ve crossed paths again, Dan isn’t about to let the opportunity slip away. Ash’s reappearance in his life is just the catalyst Dan needs to escape the rut he’s fallen into…and win back Ash’s trust and love.
Ashton Yager, once burned and now a little bit shy, didn’t mean to publicly come out as bisexual. But now that he has, he’s got to deal with the consequences, including the fact that it might’ve cost him his NHL contract. With his job on the line, he needs to keep his head down, work hard, and play the best hockey of his life. Rekindling things with Dan? That’s not exactly keeping a low profile. It’s also never going to happen, not after Dan walked away once without an explanation.
When a hurricane forces Ash to seek shelter out-of-state, he and Dan find themselves in the same B&B, where old feelings resurface. But with everything Ash has on the line, does he dare play with fire again?
