Welcome to Cedar Falls, a small North Carolina town nestled amongst the Smokey Mountains, where the people are friendly and the men are hot.

What he hasn’t planned for is Shane’s very pregnant ex-girlfriend showing up.

Jake wasn’t a prude, but he didn’t think he’d ever done anything remotely as slutty. He didn’t even know the man’s name. There had just been something about the aggressive way the sexy stranger had kissed that had Jake’s cock rock hard in seconds flat. Of course, it didn’t hurt that he was already plumping up while staring at the man’s tight ass as he followed him into the empty restaurant.
The whole encounter had screamed of a kind of sensual mystery that had Jake panting for more. Then to feel the man find his release with no more than a kiss and his finger just breaching his ass—damn. It was one of the hottest moments of his life, and other than a little rubbing, neither of their dicks had been touched.
He could only imagine what the stranger would be like in bed, something he hoped he’d find out just as soon as he learned the man’s name. The dazed look in those chocolate brown eyes explained why he hadn’t answered Jake’s question yet.
Smiling broadly, Jake took full advantage. Leaning over, he captured the sexy man’s mouth with his, loving how the stranger tasted—spicy and hot, just how Jake preferred his men.
Jake was bisexual. Around Cedar Falls he’d stuck with women to not cause waves. The people of his hometown may have been fairly accepting of gays, but Jake’s family wasn’t. They weren’t outspoken against gays, but they’d made their displeasure known in other ways.
When Pastor Powell had welcomed those who were gay with open arms into his congregation, Jake’s parents stopped attending, choosing to go to a church in Faylin, a nearby town, that didn’t have the same open-mindedness as Cedar Falls. In fact, they had been doing most of their shopping, eating out, and socializing in Faylin recently. Not that Jake would know. He hadn’t talked to either of them in months.
For this man, Jake was pretty sure he’d come out to his family and friends. He wasn’t sure what that would mean with his parents, but his friends would be fine with it. They might give him shit since he hadn’t been honest, especially after his best friend finally came out as being gay and Jake hadn’t spoken up about himself. But, in the end, they would have his back.
He knew he was getting ahead of himself when he didn’t know anything about this man, but how could he not when kissing the stranger was like coming home, comfortable, right, perfect. The man in his arms started to come out of his dazed state and kissed Jake back with equal intensity.
He loved that in his male lovers. He wasn’t into small men. He wanted them just as big as he was, and this man fit the bill perfectly. It was the first thing Jake noticed. The stranger was maybe an inch taller than Jake’s six foot two. As for overall size and muscle, they were equally matched.
Breaking the kiss, Jake sagged against the man, panting as he tried to catch his breath. “Are you ready to tell me your name now, sexy?” And he was sexy. His shaggy dark brown hair, equally dark smoldering eyes, and strong chin made Jake want to just stare for hours.
The feel of those thick fingers threading into Jake’s hair as his head was tilted back was erotic as hell, especially when dark eyes stared into his like he was special. “Shane Bartek, head chef of Euphoria and your new lover, Jake.”
He groaned, shuddering at the assertive voice. Some would have been taken aback by Shane’s forwardness, but he wasn’t. He liked that Shane wasn’t some weak-willed man wanting to be led. Jake wanted someone willing to be his equal in every way.
He gave himself a mental shake. He needed to stop getting ahead of himself. They had only just met thirty minutes ago and he was already talking about them being partners. For all he knew Shane was a narcissistic asshole.
Calm down and talk to Shane. Then he could start planning their future. Stop it. It was one of Jake’s biggest faults, his need to be in a relationship. Considering he hadn’t been in one for the last two years, it was no wonder he was jumping in with both feet.
He assumed Shane had learned Jake’s name when he accepted the award for best group, which meant he had no idea what else to say. “It’s nice to meet you, Shane.” Jake nearly groaned at how stiff and formal that had sounded.
Shane chuckled. “I must have done something wrong if it’s only nice.” He yanked Jake’s hair until their lips were just brushing against each other. “Let’s see if I can remedy that.”
With a little tug, Jake was pulled into Shane, their mouths fusing. Now that the edge had been taken off, Shane took his time, mapping every inch of Jake’s lips, first with sweet butterfly kisses, then with little nips, which he soothed with his tongue.
Jake melted. He knew it wasn’t considered a manly thing to do, but he couldn’t help it. Shane knew exactly how to kiss and took full advantage of that knowledge. Already Jake’s dick was trying to get hard, and he’d be damned if he’d fuck this man in some empty restaurant at the casino. It may have sounded lame, but he wanted a bed, not a hard floor.
Unhurriedly, Shane climbed onto the bed. He crawled over Jake until Shane hovered over him. Shane’s chest and arm muscles bulged and strained as he slowly lowered himself until his weight was fully on Jake.
They both let out low needy moans at the full-body contact. Then Shane’s mouth came down, just barely brushing across Jake’s. Flames of desire burned in Shane’s dark eyes, taking Jake’s breath away.
“Please,” Jake finally managed to get out, not caring that it was high-pitched and whiney.
That one word seemed to be all it took to break the rigid control Shane had managed to maintain. The flames in Shane’s eyes exploded into an inferno. Shane’s mouth crashed into his, devouring him with tongue, teeth, and lips.
He wasn’t sure how he was going to survive this as Shane pinned him to the bed, forcing Jake to accept whatever Shane gave him, not that he was complaining because his lover seemed to know just what Jake needed.
Jake gasped into Shane’s mouth as pure steel wrapped in satin glided along Jake’s dick when Shane rotated his hips. Jake’s hole clenched as he imagined that big cock deep inside him. Wildly Jake thrust up against Shane, needing to find more friction for his aching cock, but Shane had him effectively pinned.
Frustrated, he growled into Shane’s mouth, but the sound was swallowed by the kiss. He was completely at Shane’s mercy and loving every minute of it. Jake just hoped he’d be able to hold back his orgasm until Shane was buried in his ass.
Shane touched, stroked, and kneaded just about every inch. Jake did his best to return the touches, but the kiss had his head reeling. He had no idea anyone could kiss like Shane. It was intense, intimate, like the man’s entire focus was on the one act. Jake wasn’t sure, but he thought he might be able to come just from Shane’s kiss. One day he hoped they’d be able to test the idea.
Shane traced his fingers along his crack, brushing over Jake’s pucker, and everything inside him zeroed in on that one touch. Jake forgot how to breathe and had to rip his mouth away from the greatest kiss he’d ever had as he waited to see what those fingers would do. It had been a while since he’d found anyone to fuck him, and Jake had to admit to being excited. That it was Shane made it that much better.
Disappointed when Shane pulled away from him, Jake was ready to cry. Then he saw Shane yank open the drawer next to the bed and pull out lube along with a strip of condoms.
The snick as Shane opened the lube had Jake’s hole clenching and unclenching in anticipation. Then those lips were back, eating at his mouth. A slick finger slid along his crack and massaged around his entrance before slipping inside.
One finger became two, which morphed seamlessly into three, and Jake thought he was going to lose his mind. Then his hole was empty, and to his surprise he whimpered in dismay.
“Don’t you worry, love. I’ll fill you up.” Just as Shane promised, Jake felt the tip of the man’s cock at his entrance pushing past his ring of muscles.
Jake grunted at the burn. It was delicious, ending nearly as quickly as it had begun. Pure pleasure took its place as Jake felt Shane’s dick stretching his channel, filling him completely.
Shane didn’t stop moving until he was balls deep. Chocolate brown eyes burned into his. The barely leashed restraint Shane held over his need to thrust in and out was there in his clenched jaw and the hard lines of his face and neck.
With his own body demanding to feel Shane’s thick cock pounding into his ass, Jake didn’t make Shane wait. “Move, please.” Once again, his voice became higher and more breathy than he’d intended but in the next instant, none of that mattered.
The drag of Shane’s dick along his channel as he pulled his hips back sent Jake’s muscles fluttering. Shane’s groan was music to Jake’s ears. He loved knowing he was giving this man pleasure.
With one hard thrust, Shane found Jake’s prostate. Keeping up a hard steady rhythm, Shane had Jake hovering right on the edge, ready to tip over. Only his need to make this last gave Jake the ability to hold back, but all too soon he felt his balls pull up. White-hot lightning shot up and down his spine to spill out the tip of his cock.
