The Lure of Two Men by Cassandra Carr
Thanks for having me here today, Lucy! I appreciate it!
Hey everybody – I’m here to talk a little about my first male/male release, See the Light, It came out a few weeks ago from Loose Id, and I’m really excited about it. I’m both anxious and excited to see how my readers like it since it’s a new subgenre for me.
I’ve been asked several times why I chose to write a male/male story. Well, a lot of the reason lies with the fact that I love men. Even if they’re loving each other and not me. 😉 That’s something I’ve heard women saying when they read a male/male/female menage (meaning there’s sexual interaction between the men) – “Why would I want to be in a relationship like that? I want the guys focused on me, not each other.” I can understand that reasoning. but at the same time, I think it’s sort of selfish. What’s wrong with everybody loving everybody else? But I digress…
Men. Yes, that’s what I was talking about. I also love how different they are from women, aside from the obvious. Two men even fall in love differently (many times) than a man and a woman do. I was a psych major in college and exploring that dynamic is fascinating to me. That’s one of the reasons I like to write BDSM as well. I actually have a plot bunny for a m/m BDSM book I’m dying to write, but I’ve got to actually find a moment to breathe in order to do that. I’m not complaining – writing is the absolute best job in the world and I wouldn’t trade it for anything!
What do you think is the lure of male/male stories?
Jason stared at the other man, the lust burning him where he stood. He moved even closer, like a moth to a flame.
What the fuck am I doing?
Apparently Patrick didn’t know either, because his expression became alarmed. “What?”
I can’t stop.
“I need to do this.”
Not giving Patrick a chance to react to his words, Jason grabbed him, one hand palming the back of Patrick’s head as Jason’s other arm snaked around the man’s waist, pulling him into Patrick’s rock-hard body. It was obvious the man kept in shape, despite his playing days being over, and a tortured moan escaped before he could stop it. Jason dived into Patrick’s mouth as the passion flared, melting him from the inside out. He hadn’t kissed a man in years, and he realized how much he’d missed it as the kiss went on and on, neither man willing to let the other go.
He could feel Patrick’s cock as it lined up with his, and even through layers of clothing Jason felt the heat pouring off the other man. It made him want to submit to anything Patrick desired, which confused him. Honestly Jason couldn’t remember the last time he’d had a man’s dick in his mouth, but right now he’d give just about anything to suck Patrick off.
Patrick pushed them backward until they crashed into the wall, never letting their lips separate as he took control of the kiss. With a growl, the older man reached down and cupped Jason’s ass, pulling their cocks even closer and rubbing them together. Jason turned his head to the side with a gasp to break the kiss before he passed out, but Patrick kept at him, scoring his teeth down Jason’s neck to his pulse point.
“So fucking hot.”
Hockey player Jason Monroe lives a double life—star defenseman and soon-to-be Olympian on the ice and closeted gay man outside the rink. A serious relationship is out of the question, and Jason makes do with anonymous sex in barroom bathrooms, not willing to take the chance on coming out as gay in a decidedly macho sport.
Advisor to the US Olympic hockey team Patrick Parker knows a thing or two about being a professional hockey player who’s not out. He’s fifteen years older than Jason, and when he senses the sexy younger man is interested, he knows he shouldn’t give in to the attraction. The two men can’t keep their hands off each other, though, and with each heated encounter it gets harder to hide their relationship. Then their world blows up around them, forcing them into the limelight. Will their love survive or be put on ice?
