Release Date: July 6, 2019
When Damon spots a stunning redhead on his plane, the pilot’s determined to get to know her better. It’s been a long time since he’s experienced an instant connection with anyone. The last time was with his former lover, who left without an explanation over five years ago, devastating him. Though now cautious when it comes to relationships, MacKenzie just might be everything he’s looking for and more.
Not expecting to meet the tall, dark and handsome captain on her flight home, Mac finds Damon’s domineering persistence a turn-on. She decides to take a chance on him, which, in the end, might be a mistake when a person from his past returns. A man Damon loved and still does.
The last five years had been dark journey for Trevor, and he’s now ready to return to the light. He’s back in Boston to not only ask for forgiveness but to reconnect with Damon, since he still loves the man. However, there’s a complication. Damon is seeing someone else and Trevor might be too late.
Audio: coming soon
Trevor stood on the stoop staring at the dark blue painted front door. The house was a modest two-story, the yard well-maintained, the landscaping professionally done. The paved driveway was empty, and he only hoped that the two-car garage held Damon’s car as he knocked on the door.
After the other night at the bar, it had taken every bit of strength and determination he had to show up at the man’s home. But he couldn’t give up so easily. He understood Damon’s anger. In fact, Trevor embraced it.
Simply because he deserved every drop of it.
But he couldn’t move forward unless Damon forgave him. Even if his former lover wouldn’t accept him back, wouldn’t give him a second chance, his soul might settle a little with forgiveness.
Even so, Damon didn’t owe him anything.
What Trevor did was wrong. Awful, in fact. To hurt the one person in the whole world that loved you completely was…
Trevor closed his eyes and pressed his fists to the sides of his thighs.
He should leave. But seeing Damon the other night had wrecked him. Especially when he saw that this “Mac” Damon had a date with was a woman.
Truthfully, it probably would have bothered him just as much if Mac had been another man.
He hadn’t pushed it, he let Damon leave with his date without another incident. Instead, Trevor had sat at the bar and did something he normally didn’t do anymore, drank until some of the sharp edges of the pain had dulled.
Then he went home.
Or back to his apartment, more like it. He had only moved in a few weeks ago so it still didn’t feel like home.
Truthfully, nothing felt like home since the day he left Damon all those years ago.
It had taken too long to realize Damon was “home” to him. Not being with him made Trevor homeless.
No matter what, he couldn’t keep standing in front of Damon’s home pitying himself.
But he struggled to pull himself from that darkness caused by missing a man so deeply that it was crippling. Damon had always been his light that kept that restlessness at bay, until Trevor had done something stupid and extinguished it.
As he lifted his hand to knock again, a car pulling into the driveway had him turning his head. The garage door lifted as the black Lexus sedan with tinted windows remained in the driveway, even after the door was open.
Trevor waited. The car waited.
Trevor’s heart thumped heavily in his chest, but he couldn’t make himself unfreeze his feet from the concrete stoop.
Then the engine revved slightly as the car pulled into the garage. Before Trevor could force himself to move, the garage door closed.
He remained at the front door, willing it to open.
Fifteen minutes later, he nodded, whispered, “I’m sorry,” turned on his heels and went back to his car.
Damon wasn’t ready to forgive him.
Quite possibly, he might never be.
