Lessons Learned - A 'Hitman' Story
Coming, August 25th from Silver Publishing
When his former boyfriend disappears, small-town cop Joey and his older, ex-hitman lover Glenn set to work to discover what happened to him. In the process they decide Nate has been abducted by a hitman who may be looking for Glenn. Now they must find Nate and stop the hitman before he can succeed in killing Glenn. In the process they must learn to trust in each other’s abilities if Glenn, and their love for each other, are to survive.
"You need a haircut." Glenn twisted a strand of Joey's hair around his finger and tugged lightly.
Joey looked up from what he was doing, rolling his eyes. "You're thinking about my hair? I must be doing something wrong here."
"Oh no, you're doing everything just…" Glenn groaned as Joey's mouth engulfed his cock again.
It had been six months since Glenn had finally succumbed and admitted to himself, and to his much younger lover, that age really did not matter in the grand scheme of things. Since then Joey had moved into Glenn's home, and his life, fulltime.
"You're driving me…"
Joey sat back on his heels. "Crazy, around the bend, up a wall?"
"All of the above?" Glenn gripped Joey's arms, pulling him down and into a heated kiss. Their cocks rubbed together and he knew he wouldn't be able to hold back much longer.
And then the phone rang. In point of fact, both of theirs did.
"You are so kidding me," Joey growled against Glenn's lips. "I know I turned mine off."
"You thought you did." Glenn reached blindly for the bedside table where his sat. He'd have ignored it if the ring wasn't the one he'd set up for emergency calls. Finding it, he answered, trying to keep the frustration out of his voice as he felt Joey slide off him so he could get to his phone.
Glenn heard the edge of panic in Joey's voice even as he tried to focus on what Mary, Joey's sister, was saying. Then he understood the panic when Mary told him what was going on. Eck, her boyfriend and one of the town's deputies, had called to let her know Nate was missing.
"Missing how?" Glenn asked, sitting up, all thoughts of what he and Joey had been doing forgotten as he listened to Mary.
"Missing?" Joey's voice echoed in the background. "How can he be missing? I just saw him a couple of hours ago as I was getting off my shift. He said he was on his way to the coffeehouse to meet Rory. He seemed fine."
The two men listened to their respective callers, Glenn snagging the pen and paper from the table on his side of the bed to take notes. When the conversations ended he turned his gaze to Joey only to see he was back on the phone again.
"Chief, it's me. Mom just called to say Nate…" Joey paused, listening, then said, "All right, I'll be there as soon as I'm dressed," and hung up.
"Anything?" Glenn asked as he headed to the closet.
"Just that he didn't show up at mom's place and Rory is frantic. Mom called Eck who of course told Mary, which is why she called you, I guess."
"Since your phone was busy," Glenn agreed. He took out a pair of jeans, grabbed another pair for Joey and tossed them to him.
Glenn had discovered he liked Nate, once he'd gotten past the fact that Joey and Nate had been almost but not quite lovers before he'd come back into Joey's life. The young man was nice and very down-to-earth. Not the type to just vanish on a whim. He was somewhat less enthusiastic about Nate's choice of a new boyfriend but it wasn't his place to say anything.
"You planning on going barefoot?" Glenn asked a couple of minutes later when they were dressed, or almost dressed in Joey's case.
"Ugh. Yeah." He sat down to put on his shoes then bounced to his feet again. "Now I'm ready."
