Release Date: March 25, 2016
Dan watched the people in his life settle down, get married, and have kids, while he cycled through a seemingly endless string of break-ups and disappointing relationship fails. From time to time, he thought about the one that got away: Ian. The college boyfriend he’d never quite forgotten.
So when Ian comes back to town and wants to get together, Dan jumps at the chance to see his first real boyfriend again. And despite his track record, he holds out hope that he and Ian might make it work the second time around.
While Ian is still just as sweet and sexy as he was back in college, he’s also harder, slicker, and more secretive than Dan remembers. As much as Dan wants to fall head first into their new relationship, he fears those secrets, and worries what Ian might be hiding. Left unchecked, Dan’s doubt and mistrust could threaten his second chance at happiness with Ian.
Sometimes, what destroys us are not the things we fear, but our fears themselves.

“Yep. Unless you want to skip it and go right back to your place. I could definitely be persuaded.” Ian raked his gaze over Dan slowly, then unlocked the car and ducked into the driver’s seat with a sexy grin.
“And how am I supposed to persuade you?” Dan buckled his seat belt as they pulled out of the lot.
“Use your imagination, it’s a half hour ride.” Ian shifted in his seat, pivoting his hips and drawing Dan’s attention to the bulge at his groin.
In the car, free from prying eyes and liberated by the cocktails he’d downed at dinner, Dan let his mouth do what it wanted. He licked Ian’s jaw, dragged his tongue down Ian’s neck, and sucked the hollow at his throat while running a hand over the front of Ian’s khakis.
“Careful, any more persuasive and I’ll run off the road.” Ian chuckled and leaned in to Dan’s mouth, a low rumble of approval vibrating in his throat.
“Mmm. I’m trained for that. We’ll be fine.”
Ian laughed and took one hand off the wheel, wrapping it around Dan’s head, holding him to his neck. “That feels great. God, I’ve missed you.”
Dan sucked up the skin under his mouth, not hard enough to leave a mark, but just until Ian moaned. He’d missed this, too. Somehow, no one had ever made him feel as sexy as Ian did, no one ever had given him the same thrill. For years after college, he’d tried to re-enact the frotting he’d enjoyed with Ian, but it never felt as fulfilling with anyone else. Most other guys expected penetration, which Dan was happy enough to partake in, yet somehow, even burying himself in someone else and pounding away wasn’t as satisfying as simply rubbing against Ian.
He was hard and Ian’s neck was damp when they finally reached his neighborhood. He managed to walk up the drive and into his house with some dignity, and even locked the door behind them. As soon as that was done, though, he went back to kissing Ian. Now he could freely take Ian’s mouth, which he did, and reached down to cup his ass for emphasis. Fuck, he felt good, all muscle and wiry strength.
Ian pulled back and pressed his forehead to Dan’s. “I want to be naked with you.”
Dan laughed at the blunt request, but he couldn’t deny he wanted the same thing. “This way.” He led Ian down the hall to his bedroom and undressed, throwing his clothes on the floor.
Ian did the same, and in moments they were both nude, standing by the bed. Dan was just drunk enough to not care about the slight padding around his middle, and Ian was sober enough to respond to Dan’s attention.
“Damn, you’re sexy.”
Dan burst out laughing. “Man, I’ve put on at least thirty pounds since college.”
“So fucking sexy.” Ian repeated, and punctuated his words with a two-handed caress down Dan’s torso.
A spike of lust shot through Dan at the words and the attention, and he urged Ian onto the mattress.

Have you ever got to the stage where you just can't work in the space that's always been your preferred workspace? I've been there for a while.
Some background information:
Finally, I'd had enough, but I still didn't know where to start. Luckily, I have friends who have lots of skills I don't. I enlisted help.
Yesterday, I spent the day in my office, alternatively flitting from one end of the room to the other saying, "I don't know where to start", throwing things out I haven't used in ten years (am I ever going to use these pens that ran out of ink three years ago?), and gasping at the colour of my desk (I haven't seen it in a while).
My friend was ruthless. The first time I held something I liked but had never used and didn't know what to do with it, she smiled, patted me on the back and held out her hand. "Don't worry," she said. "I'll find somewhere safe for it." I handed it over.
And she tossed it into the charity bag.
Once I'd finished hyperventilating, we got back to work. We're not finished yet. I have homework - things I need to sort through in the next two weeks. Then she'll come back and we'll impose more order onto this part of my life.
I'm not comfortable with it yet but I can see the potential. Already, walking into my office isn't something I need to build up to. This is going to be a good thing.

Seth finds himself alone at an abandoned train station, with no idea what happened, or how he got there. He boards a train, only to discover it’s a special express transporting the recently deceased to their final destination. The conductor tells him he’s having a near-death experience. Seth wonders if it has something to do with his violent boyfriend, but that doesn't matter. All that matters is getting the hell off the train before he actually dies. But when he spots his best friend and secret crush among the traveling dead, the urge to leave fades…

For a minute, they sat in silence with only the rumbling of the train disturbing the quiet. When it became apparent that Seth wasn’t going to start speaking, Carter asked, “Still want to go on that road trip?”
“Not without you.”
“Mhm… If we could go together?” It wasn’t possible, of course, but Carter wasn’t interested in reality right now. One reason he hadn’t told Seth he was dying was because he’d enjoyed making all those unrealistic plans, after all, and he still did.
“I would go anywhere with you.”
“Yeah?” Carter let go of Seth’s neck and tightened his grip around his shoulder. “Where would you like to go first?”
Seth looked at him with that certain shine in his eyes he got when he talked about technology and space and all that. “The Science Fiction Museum and Hall of Fame,” he said, predictably.
“God, you are such a geek.”
“Geeks rule the world.”
“Yeah? I don’t know about that.”
“It’s true, though! We created the Internet and launched mankind into space. What did zombie fanatics ever do?”
“Uh… we make good movies?”
Seth scoffed. “We have Star Wars and Star Trek and—”
“Aren’t those the same thing?”
“Oh no, you didn’t!”
Carter laughed. He’d rarely seen Seth look so offended. But whatever it was Seth had been worrying about earlier, he wasn’t thinking about it now, and that was a win.

One of my beta readers asked me what purpose one of the chapters had in the story I've been rewriting. I spent a lot of time justifying why those 3000 words were integral to the story and had to be there:
So I conducted an experiment:
I couldn't tell that the original chapter had ever existed. There was no gap in the plot, the story-line moved smoothly forward.
All that work. All that fun imagining the entire valley and the fire and the dead man and how he died and how he was discovered.
None of it was needed.
So it's gone.
I'm hoping I write another story sometime that needs a scene just like that one, so all that beautiful description can find a home.
