Blurb

Leo and Caleb have been through hell—addiction, destruction, and even a five year separation—but they’ve come through on the other side with their love stronger than ever.

Caleb knows he’s earned Leo’s forgiveness. He wants to believe he deserves it, but just when Leo needs him more than ever, a voice in his head insists that maybe he doesn’t. It’s so loud, he can’t block it out. So loud, he’d do anything to silence it.

Including risking everything he and Leo, and the rest of Star Shadow, have built together.

Extraordinary Things is a continuation of Leo and Caleb’s love story from Terrible Things.

Excerpt

“If you don’t want to buy another house, you just need to tell me,” Leo said, and then wiggled out of Caleb’s grasp, walking over to their big oversized walk-in closet. “Then I’ll tell the realtor,” he said, his voice muffled. “But I feel stupid going to look at all these great places, when you end up hating all of them.”

“I don’t hate them,” Caleb said quietly. That was true. He didn’t hate them. There wasn’t even anything really wrong with them, but there was this voice that kept telling him it was a mistake to move. A mistake to buy a new house, even though they had enough cash they could buy ten houses. “I just like this one.”

“I do too.” Leo walked out of the closet, wearing only a pair of skintight briefs, leaving nothing to the imagination and sending Caleb’s pulse through the stratosphere. His voice and expression had softened, and Caleb thought if he kissed Leo, he wouldn’t push him away. Not now. “I just wouldn’t mind having some additional space.”

“Maybe,” Caleb said, clearing his throat as he began to unbutton his own shirt, “maybe we could look into an addition.”

Leo gave him a soft, chiding look, like he could see right through Caleb, straight into him, into all those ugly places that he tried to hide, and tried to hide from. “Maybe,” he said. Even though they both knew perfectly well that there was no extra room on their small, beachfront lot for an addition. If they wanted a bigger house, they would need to buy one. But for right now, Leo seemed to have let the problem go, and so Caleb decided that now when they had so much to celebrate, what was the point of continuing to argue about it? They’d figure it out—someday, anyway, Caleb reasoned.

“Hey,” Caleb said, shucking his shirt and reaching for Leo again, his hands sliding up his soft curves, reveling in the way his skin felt against his hands. “Hey, let’s go to bed.”

Leo gave him a sly, lopsided smile, reaching up and intertwining his fingers through his curls, pulling Caleb down so their lips were nearly touching. “And what do you think I was trying to do, this whole damn time?”

“Torture me?”

“Maybe just a little,” Leo acknowledged, raising himself up so their eyes were nearly level. That deep, endless blue was something that Caleb had gotten lost in for the first time at the age of sixteen, and he’d never ever gotten over it—and the truth was, he never ever wanted to. Leo was as much a part of him as his red hair or his too-big hands or his mediocre ability to play the bass. Even when they’d been separated, and it had been years since he’d seen Leo, there’d always been a part of him yearning to be with him again, to feel that hot wild blue gaze wash over him, calming and exciting him, somehow all at the same time.

“I love you,” Caleb said, even though the words didn’t feel like enough to possibly explain the feelings surging through him. Love and lust and tenderness and winding through all of that, a golden thread of abject gratitude.

Leo was the toughest person Caleb knew—the most relentless, and possibly the least forgiving person on the planet. So if he’d forgiven Caleb, and they’d moved on, that must mean Caleb deserved that forgiveness.

“You look,” Leo said thoughtfully, tapping a finger on Caleb’s bottom lip, “you look like you’re not thinking of what you should be thinking about.”

Excerpt

Lucas nodded and stood, ready to follow Nick just about anywhere. The guy was hot, with his husky voice and his muscular arms, and his confidence was magnetic, drawing Lucas in. The way he’d touched Lucas’s thigh made his whole body scream out for more. Lucas didn’t see any red flags or hear any warning bells. He’d had a handful of hookups with varying degrees of satisfaction, though usually not with strangers. Something about this guy felt right. And just like moving to LA, just like taking off to find the bar, when something felt right, Lucas felt compelled to go with it.

Outside of the bar, Nick led the way, guiding Lucas several blocks farther into the city. They soon arrived at a hotel that was … well, not what Lucas had expected. He’d figured Nick would guide him to a cheap, anonymous motel with questionable cleanliness. That’s what usually happened with his one-night stands, right? Instead, they’d arrived at a shiny new building, several stories high, the front modern glass and metal, everything very angular. Lucas raised his eyebrows, mentally reassessing the situation. Who are you, Nick, to take a stranger to such a nice hotel for a hook-up?

Nick didn’t hesitate when they entered the brightly lit lobby. He led Lucas over to the elevator and hit the button firmly. The moment they were inside, Nick was on Lucas, placing his strong hands on either side of Lucas’s face. He pressed their bodies together and then their mouths. He had Lucas pinned against the wall, and Lucas’s heart pounded, his dick getting harder with every passing second. Nick’s hands gripped him firmly, rough fingers stroking his jawline as his hot mouth captured Lucas’s, tasting of gin.

They kissed frantically, Lucas tugging at Nick’s clothes, already desperate for the feel of skin, which he was rewarded with briefly before the elevator dinged softly and the doors slid open. Nick pulled away, cleared his throat, and adjusted his shirt, standing straighter in an effort to look composed. Lucas couldn’t help but grin. Luckily, there was nobody waiting to board.

Nick grabbed Lucas’s hand. “This way.” The hall branched in several directions and Nick put a hand on Lucas’s lower back. The touch sent sparks up Lucas’s spine as Nick guided Lucas to a room a few doors down.

The beep of the door lock sent a twist through Lucas’s stomach and he licked his lips to moisten his suddenly dry mouth. I’m really doing this—hooking up with a sexy stranger my first night in LA. He fought to suppress a bubble of laughter. What a cliché.

But really, Nick was sexy. As they entered the room, the dimly lit lamp in the corner illuminated Nick’s strong, square jaw and the high cheekbones that made him look like a model. Broad shoulders stretched his t-shirt to its limits. Lucas could hardly wait to be wrapped in Nick’s muscular arms.

Excerpt

“Sounds like you’d rather be anywhere else.”

Lucas took a sip of his drink and let the gin slide past his mouth in a way that made Nicky wonder what else his mouth could do. “I’m happy where I am.” His smile was slow and deliberate.

“So am I.” The liquor warmed Nicky’s throat, and that warmth traveled through his body. He finished his drink and slid the glass towards the bartender.

“Thirsty?” Lucas nodded towards the empty glass.

Nicky laughed and ran a hand through his blond hair. “Not particularly, but you’re a whole drink ahead of me, and that’s just not fair.” He leaned forward, as if he were going to flag down the bartender, but instead put a hand on Lucas’s knee. He dropped his voice to a slow murmur and let a smile tease at the corner of his mouth. “Are you judging me?”

Lucas shook his head, hair falling in his eyes. “I would never.” He polished off his own drink and dropped his hand to Nicky’s. His fingers slid across the back of Nicky’s hand and trailed up his arm a few inches, Nicky’s skin burning.

Nicky curled his fingers, tightening his grip on Lucas’s thigh. Well, shit. It was definitely going to happen. “That’s good.” His throat was thick, voice quiet. “I’m not sure if we could be friends if you were judging me.”

Lucas parted his lips and exhaled, eyes fluttering closed for a second, and Nicky’s dick began to stiffen. “Is that what we’re going to be, Nick? Friends?”

Nicky cracked a grin. “That remains to be seen, doesn’t it?”
