He wanted to talk about what he’d done. He wanted to do it again.
A surge of lust caught tight in my chest, wrapped itself around my guilt so I couldn’t breathe.
“Huh?” Coherency had fled.
“First, I wanted to apologize again, because—”
“Jesus Christ!” I snapped because I’d heard it all, about how I was a means to an end, that he was sorry, blah, blah. “Stop fucking apologizing for fucking me! I’m not some innocent who you fucking defiled. I don’t need sympathy or apology. I need more.” I slammed a hand over my mouth as my temper spilled out of me. I didn’t swear. I was the calm one in the room; I was the one who people looked to for how to be calm. I’d been so buttoned up and proper my entire life, but one night of being fucked and suddenly I was cursing and snapping and losing my shit and telling him i needed more sex like some kid who couldn’t keep it in his pant. I needed perspective on this, and I needed it stat.
“It’s okay.” Ethan placed a hand over mine as he spoke, then released it when I stepped away from him. “I won’t apologize again, although you have to know how bad I feel that…” he scrubbed at his hair and twisted his fingers in the length. Yeah, I knew. I knew how sorry he was to have touched me because he kept freaking telling me. Who would want a serious accountant who’d kept his sexual identity a secret for so long that sometimes thought he imagined he wanted sex at all, let alone with men?

Driven by a combination of alcohol-induced recklessness and an overwhelming desire for something real, Josh ventures into a dark and seedy bar and lusts after a sexy, enigmatic hooker. When Josh negotiates a price for one night of pleasure he can’t know that when his time with Ethan is over, he'll be left shattered and forever changed by the encounter. Fleeing with his son is the only means of ensuring their survival amidst the chaos of what comes next, and there’s only one man he can trust to keep them safe.
