Sexual energy buzzed through K9 officer Dusk Command’s body as he sat in the passenger side of Shane’s unmarked vehicle. He’d been doing ride alongs with Detective Sargent Shane Saxton for the last few weeks. As a new transfer to District Two, Dusk was still learning the ropes and how the department ran.
From the first moment he’d met Shane, he’d been held captive by the man. Muscular, tall, handsome, and really intelligent, Shane was everything Dusk wanted in a man. Too bad nothing would be happening between them anytime soon. Still, that didn’t stop Dusk from jerking off every night and morning to the thought of Shane taking control of him.
The unmarked police vehicle pulled to a stop on the darkened street in the shitty part of downtown. They were serving a warrant to a known drug dealer.
A shiver raced down Dusk’s spine as the deep guttural tenor whispered across the small space that separated them. They locked eyes within the darkness of the car. For the briefest of seconds, Dusk thought he saw Shane’s eyes move down to his lips. That move made his heart hammer.
Shane’s guarded eyes suddenly narrowed. “You solid?”
With his thoughts racing away about the naked heat they could ignite in this car, Dusk licked his lips. God, he wanted him so fucking bad. He wanted the deep, raw, passionate heat of finding new love. “Getting there.”
And he was. His prick was filling fast and hard behind the zipper of his tactical pants. Within the safety of the darkened car, Dusk moved his hand over his throbbing prick, adjusting his dick as he mentally adjusted his balls. He needed to get his head back into the game.
At that moment, a truck zoomed by the car, snapping him out of his thoughts. Shane’s gaze moved down his body, catching his hand still adjusting his painfully hard shaft.
The scorching path of those beautiful eyes made Dusk’s junk contract hard, sending a shot of spunk into his tactical pants. In the back seat, Colt whimpered. His K9 partner was anxious to get out. He knew they were working.
Shane leaned across the seat, getting in his face the way a trainer would push around a trainee. “We’ll deal with this later. This is not acceptable.”
Dusk swallowed hard, unable to pull his gaze away from those brilliant blue eyes. Shane’s dark black hair fell forward over his face. There was a five o’clock shadow on his strong, broad jaw. Temptation had Dusk letting his eyelids go heavy, even allowing them to drift down to those full lips he was so desperate to kiss. They were inches away.
“Fuck.” The word snapped out of Shane’s mouth like gunfire. “This is going to be a problem.”
Shane frowned hard, edging back a little. “We have a job to do. Get Colt leashed up and let’s go. We’ll talk about this later.”
Fear sliced down his spine when he caught the cool edge of Shane’s voice. Relieved to have his work to hide behind, Dusk got out of the passenger side. He opened the back door and whistled low for Colt to get out. His German Shepherd jumped out of the backseat and sat at his feet on the sidewalk. Dusk snapped on his leash, determined to make it look like he was just out for an early evening stroll.
Shane circled around the back of the unmarked car and came in close. He had a good four inches of height on Dusk and that made Dusk’s submissive side want to swoon at Shane’s feet.
Shane took the lead as they headed down the block to the red brick apartment building. “Let’s do this.”
The echo of a shot fired out into the night. At first, Dusk thought it had been a car backfiring. He was wrong. Another round of gunfire cracked out.
“Get down!” Dusk yelled.
It wasn’t Shane he should have been worried about.
Dusk felt the burning sting of the bullet strike him, causing him to take a step back. Blood flowed down over his face. He didn’t understand how it had happened or why.
He looked down, seeing his uniform stained with blood, and he swayed forward, falling to his knees with his hands hitting the pavement hard. At his side, Colt whimpered, licking his face.
Darkness teased his peripheral vision as he tried to stay conscious. Everything around him started to go black and there was nothing he could do to stop it from happening. The cool pavement hugged his face. How had he gotten there?
He was flipped over. Shane hovered above him. When had he raced to his side? From far away, he could hear Shane calling to him, begging him to stay. He wasn’t sure if he could. Right then, he wasn’t sure if he wanted to.
Life had gotten so far out of whack and so far out of reach. He wasn’t happy with the life he had or the life he was living. He was a closeted gay man and there was nothing he could do to step out and be happy. Now that he lost the chance, there was nothing he could do to get it back.
Shane was above him, pleading. “Stay with me. Help is coming!”
Then there was nothing but dark, starry sky. He was lost and there was nothing he could do to find his way back. A strong hand gripped his and for a moment he focused his eyes. They locked in the swirling depths of the deepest blue he’d ever seen.
Tingles raced down his spine. Dusk was going to use Shane as a lifeline to hold on for just a few minutes longer. Movement blurred around him and he felt that hand slip away.
“Look, I’m going to make one thing very clear. Nothing is going to happen between us until I say it happens, do you understand?”
Dusk nodded his head as though he did, but it was clear he wasn’t hearing him.
“I’m telling you like it is. If you want me, you have to work for it.”
“I get it.”
“We have to get you back to your life and until I think you’re strong enough, nothing will be happening between us.”
A flare of anger raced through Dusk’s eyes before he closed it off. It was clear this situation was not fun, but Shane was only doing this to make sure he was okay. “You almost passed out on me. If we had sex, you wouldn’t be able to walk for a week and you know it.”
Dusk’s mouth dropped open. He finally understood what was going on between them. If they were going to make this happen then Dusk needed to recognize all the parameters. Was now a good time to tell Dusk he was a Dom? Shane wasn’t so sure but he needed the conversation to happen sooner rather than later. It just couldn’t happen tonight. He did not want to scare the man away—not before he had him tied to his bed, ready and wanting.
“You don’t need to stay here. I’m fine.”
“Chief Rask asked that I stick around for a little longer. Honestly, I would rather be here for you than anywhere else.”
“Fine. Just stay out of my way.”
As Shane stood up, Dusk started to move away. Shane reached out, stopping him with a hand on his arm. Their eyes locked. He was crossing a line, but he needed to make a point. Shane backed Dusk up until he was standing against the wall.
Blocked in with no place to go, Shane leaned down and kissed him hard, brushing and teasing his lips over Dusk’s. A sigh escaped his parted lips.
It wasn’t long before the kiss became a deep hunger he unleashed upon Shane. Forced to take control, Shane threaded his fingers into his hair, taking the kiss deeper and setting the pace. His heart was thundering in his ears. His cock flexed out, flipping between the break in the towel to brush up against Dusk’s body.
Things were spinning out faster than he wanted it to happen. Reluctantly, Shane broke away. His lips were wet and humming with need, and so was his cock. Shane slipped his hand down, brushing it up against Dusk’s dick.
“This can’t happen yet. I want you completely healthy and ready to be taken. And that’s not going to happen until you’re back on your feet.”
A moan of disappointment rushed through his parted lips. “Please.”
The simple word was nearly Shane’s undoing but he had to keep control. Dusk stroked his own cock several times, slipping his thumb over his tip, letting it ride and skim the head. Shane gripped his cock hard and leaned his lips down against his ear.
“Come for me. Come for me now.”
The simple words were enough to bring Dusk over the edge, shooting his spunk into Shane’s palm. Dusk was breathing hard—they both were. Slumped against his chest, weakened and shaken. Shane stepped back, picking Dusk up into his arms. He carried him to the master bedroom and laid him down on the bed. He kissed him softly.
“You need to get some rest. I don’t want to see you out of bed until you’re completely ready.”
“I need to get back to my life. I need my strength to return and the only way that’s going to happen is if you let me and help me do what I need to do.”
“Then don’t do it alone.”
Temptation had Shane wanting to slip down into bed with Dusk but he couldn’t. His cock was rock hard and ready behind the towel. Shane wanted to feel those soft lips caress his dick and suck it hard. That was not going to happen, not now.
“Where are you going?”
Tension vibrated through Shane’s broad shoulders as he moved back from the man he desperately wanted to make his submissive. “I need to leave.”
He needed to take care of things or Shane wouldn’t be able to sleep for the next five hours.
“We both know that’s not the right thing to happen tonight.”
A gasp of surprise whispered from Dusk’s parted lips. Shane could see he was still hungry and wanting for more. As Shane slipped out of the bedroom, he shut the door behind him, trying to will his legs to walk away.
As Shane strode back to the guest bedroom, he shut the door behind him, locking the door. He needed a few minutes alone and away from the man he so desperately needed. Shane headed for the shower, flipping it back on. He let the towel drop to the floor and looked down at his throbbing, disobedient cock.
Bastard wanted sex and it wanted it now. He got into the shower and gripped his cock painfully hard. He thrust hard into his palm, pushing his hips upward as he stroked his cock roughly. He braced his left hand against the tile as he stroked, imagining thumping his prick in and out of Dusk’s hungry mouth.
The thought of ramming his cock into Dusk’s ass broke him. Shane’s orgasm raced through his dick, sending his spunk flying against the tile. All he could think about was stroking his dick in and out of his submissive’s ass. He wanted to take Dusk on as his sub but it was going to be a long time before that could happen.
