Warner was first. Now it’s Nate’s turn to share the details about his first lover.
A military brat, an eighteen year old Nate moves with his family to a new base the summer before his senior year. Almost immediately he falls for his next-door neighbor—as well as—befriends the man’s youngest son. Nate knows there’s no chance he’d ever get his hands on Jay’s father, but that doesn’t stop him from fantasizing like crazy.
Two years and a few hundred miles later, Nate is called home from college when his father ends up in the hospital. While there, he finds Major Elijah Taylor now divorced with an empty nest next door. Nate knows this might be his one and only chance to get into the major’s pants, so inexperienced or not, he sets out to seduce the man.
Nate’s unprepared for the wave of emotion that hits him as he returns to his past and eventually has to confront the feelings he has for Eli. Ten years hasn’t taken the ache away. Nate’s not sure a lifetime will.
Nate lifted his gaze. “Just you?” He’d expected as much, but he wanted to hear confirmation the man was free and clear before he took the next step.
“Jay’s mother and I got a divorce. The boys stay with her when and if they come home. So now it’s time to downsize.”
“I’m sorry to hear that,” Nate said, lying just a little. He wasn’t upset the marriage was over, especially considering who the man had been married to. Their relationship had been a ticking time bomb as it was. But they’d been a family, unhappy or not, and it was sad that things hadn’t been able to work out for them.
The fact that the major was moving meant there was a shelf life on his little plan. It was now or never. “So that thing you said… about helping us out if we needed it…”
“Anything,” Eli said.
Nate took a deep breath and just let the words fly. “Can I be your coffee boy tomorrow morning?”
Eli was silent a few of Nate’s very rapid heartbeats. “My what?”
“I want to bring you coffee after your run… and do… whatever it is you want me to do.”
Eli stood there stunned, but Nate was almost sure he saw the man’s eyes darken with lust. After another moment of silence, Eli grabbed Nate’s arm and dragged him into the house, slamming the door shut. He was pushed up counter to the back of the closed door, Eli’s big body jammed against his.
“You watched me?” Eli growled.
He couldn’t tell if the major was angry… or horny as hell.
Nate lifted his head, trying not to show any fear. “And if I did?”
Eli rubbed his body closer, staring down at Nate. Nate could feel the man’s hard cock against him, answering his question. “I don’t appreciate being spied on.”
Nate swallowed, his tremor of fear buffeted by the man’s reaction to him. “I think you liked it,” Nate said, trying to sound more courageous than he was. “You wouldn’t be hard if you didn’t.”
Eli rolled his hips and rubbed up against Nate. The man’s eyes closed for a second, and he groaned. “Damn you, Nate.”
Eli glowered at him. “I shouldn’t want you.”
“I could say the same. We’re both consenting adults with a need that has to be fulfilled, so why not?”
Eli searched his face a moment. “You’re my son’s best friend.”
