Chapter 1

“So, we’re heading to my place for a very special night of fun.” The blonde little sprite trailed her finger down his arm. “I thought you might like to join us.”

Us? Please let it be another girl just as hot as this one. The tiny thing standing in front of him was nothing like the curvy, voluptuous women he usually went for, but she definitely held his interest. Damn, those brown eyes were like pools of chocolate. If her friend is as cute as this one, I’ll be in heaven all night long. But when she gestured toward the door where an attractive man waited with hungry eyes, Kendrick Jordan had to shake his head in an attempt to understand the invitation.

He blinked once, twice, in hopes of focusing his eyes. He knew he shouldn’t have ordered that last drink; he’d gone from really buzzed to pretty much drunk in the last fifteen minutes. The little imp standing beside him continued to trace her finger up and down his arm and looked up at him with a challenging, sexy smile.

She didn’t have the look of trashy bar-fly, but she also didn’t come across as a fake-ass bimbo. Truly, she spoke like a girl just looking to have a good time. But, of course, that could be his vodka-ized brain talking.

“Come on, sexy. You look like you’ve had enough. Tony and I were watching you, we think you’d be a great addition to our plans for tonight. No rules, no pressure, no strings, just a good time had by all. Whatdya say?” She batted her lashes and bit her lip while waiting on him to answer.

Well, hell. Not long ago he’d mentioned to his cousins that he may be bi-curious or some shit like that. Guess he was about to find out if he was still interested in sex with a man.

Throwing some money on the bar, he stood, perhaps a bit too quickly because he had to close his eyes to steady himself before walking toward the door. The cell phone he held in his hand buzzed as he walked. Glancing down at it, he saw his cousin, Decker, was calling. Again. He let it go to voicemail. So far, he had twenty-seven texts from various family members, and thirteen voicemails.

He knew he eventually had to go back home, had to face what had haunted him for several years and finally sent him into a downward spiral. He also knew he had the most supportive family in Torey Hope and surrounding areas, there was no way they’d expect him to go through any of this by himself. But, he had a sick feeling that things were going to get much worse before they got better, and the thought of that scared the ever-loving shit out of him.

So, for the time being, he’d see where the tiny little blonde wanted to take him. He’d keep blocking out the bad, laughing it off, fucking it away, and pretending that his heart wasn’t broken and hidden behind a complete and total façade. Whatever she had planned had to be better than the exhaustion, the nightmares, the blanket of darkness he felt had started to suffocate him recently.

When they reached the door, Tony gave a subtle nod of his head before reaching out a hand. “Tony.”

Kendrick took his hand, “Kendrick.”

“Okay, so my two sexy men for the evening have met. I’m Jay. Let’s go have some fun, boys.”

He’d never left a bar with both a man and a woman. What the hell are you doing, man?

I have absofuckinglutely no clue.

But if it keeps my mind off other things for the night, it’s got to be worth it.
