Winning my heart is easy! #MFRWauthor #blogchallenge #amwriting

 

First of all, I want to send well wishes, hopes and prayers to all that were affected by the hurricanes and wildfires. I hope you are all safe and damage is to a minimum. I missed you all last week since my computer crapped out on me. Luckily I have a techy son and he saved everything.  I don’t really have any advice on time-saving, as I am just a kitty that chases anything shiny! I did learn a few focus tricks.. Now to put them to use!

This is week 37 of the 52-week MFRW blog challenge. This weeks topic is Five Ways to Win My Heart. This is in no particular order.

Flowers. Not from a shop but potted plants, bags of bulbs potted rose bushes. These keep on giving year after year and not only a few days. I can always clip a few to bring inside.

Doing things without being asked. My daughter is spoiling me while she is here. she sweeps, unloads the dishwasher and keeps the laundry caught up daily. My Daughter in law also spoils me by helping me weed, driving me to the store and Dr and helping cook a few times a week.

Books. Last year I had an author send me her entire series I had helped promote, beta read and reviewed. I was surprised when that box arrived totally unexpected.  I have authors send me free books quite often, and the other day one sent me two audio codes to use for any book I wanted. I would have gotten one of hers but I had them all. so I let her recommend me some.

Charm and a kind smile.  bay’s giggles, cute kitties and There s nothing like a nice smile, and someone doing something kind like opening doors, passing on favors any act of kindness. I’m a goner! I guess that’s why I love cowboy books so much.

and of course CHOCOLATE!

Now let’s go see what wins the other author’s hearts.

I think I am going to like her.

My youngest Granddaughter turned Three Jan 22. Here she is with her mom.

I got to go visit for a while. We took her birthday gifts, a plastic stove, some plastic food and dishes, and a cute plastic waffle maker. She seemed to enjoy it all. We also got her Smurfs two but didn’t get a chance to watch with her.

Watching Papa put the stove together…..cuting the play fruit.

If you can dream it~~~~~You Can Do It!

Tease Tuesday

Welcome back to Teaser Tuesday. I am going to continue with Simon plus two ( working title only) the rest of this month.

Last week we had  Topher’s Mom drop a bomb on his plans. Will he be coming home? How will that affect Annie and TJ and Simon and Max? We will see soon. Today Simon gets a bomb dropped on him by Max too. Will this change how Simon sees Max?

 

This is very rough as it’s a first draft. please forgive any mistakes.  I am happy for any comments if you see glaring issues.   This is a MM romance and there is some mention of man-sex. If thats not your thing  This story may not be for you.

Simon Plus Two copyright 2016

I never factored in a relationship when I came here. This was supposed to be a summer thing only. Practice, Play baseball and help Annie on her farm while learning about the animals. I will be able to put this on a résumé in the future. Now add in the little league team and Max, and I am confused about my future now. I had it planned out since high-school get my degree intern as a veterinarian assistant and someday have my animal hospital and shelter to rescue abused and abandoned animals. Now I don’t want to leave Max or Annie. I’m pretty sure if Annie asks TJ to stay he will then that will make my decision harder.
This week has been crazy.Everyone seems moody. Annie has spent a lot of time at Vicki’s and the farmer’s market working. TJ is unhappy because he hasn’t got to see Annie more than an hour or so at night. Annie is still upset over the phone call with her son, and Caleb as well. I don’t like Caleb, but I hope the three of them can come to an understanding soon.
Max has been moody I am not sure why. Maybe he is tired of me. I have a date tonight so that I will see. Next week is the big 4th of July celebration, and we have four away games. TJ and I arrive at practice for the little guys.I have an overnight bag packed. Hopefully, I can ease Max’s mood by what I am offering tonight. We have messed around mostly handjobs, and I have had and given my first blow-job. We haven’t gotten close to lovemaking. I’m scared to death.
When Tj and I arrive at the field Max is already there. My stomach roils.Is he going to tell me I’m too young? Is he going to tell me he met someone else? I relax a little as Max grabs me and pulls me into a deep passionate kiss.
“Damn I’ve missed you.” he breathes against my lips.
“We talk every day.”
“I know. Last week was tough not having our date on Monday and me having to work doubles most of the previous week. I hate filling in for vacations.”
“You’re not here to break up with me?”
“Why would you think that?”
“You’re here before us.”
“I wanted to get here early enough for that kiss. I felt like a starving wolf not having a kiss in over a week.”
TJ clears his throat. “OK, guys break up the embrace here come the kids.”
Max swoops in for a last quick kiss. The bus pulls up, and pandemonium ensues as the Hellions push, shove, and scream clambering out of the van. TJ shakes his head and laughs as he darts off after a Hellion. We picked the perfect name. I chuckle as TJ carries back the giggling boy that looks so much like him. TJ will make an excellent father some day.
“Max and Simon standing on the Green K.I S.S.I.N.G.” Becca chants.
I blush. Max grins at her.” Isn’t that supposed to be sitting in a tree?”
“That’s’ just silly.” She rolls her eyes.
There are whoops and Tj hollers. I glance over and see him on the ground with two more boys all over him.
“Why is it silly Becca.” Max squats so the two are at eye level. I can’t help but wonder if he wants kids some day. He is older than I am. I’ve never thought of children, being an only child. I know my parents, even though they support me, were disappointed their bloodline would stop.
“There are no trees nearby. Besides, two grown men sitting in a tree is weird.” She takes off to join the boys on the TJ pile up.
“We better go rescue him and get this show on the road.I’m ready to spend some alone time with you.” He wiggles his brows at me.
We herd the kids to the dugout, give them the morning pep-talk waiting for the other team. Today is a home game. The Blue Devils arrive, and we finally win. The kids were ecstatic when we took them for Pizza to celebrate. By the time we got back to the field.We were all exhausted. All of us grownups that is.
‘What do you want to do now? My plans of taking you out for lunch backfired on me. I didn’t plan on 14 kids and three more adults.”
“I thought maybe we could go to your place relax, horseback ride, have dinner there.” I find my feet fascinating.
“Yeah. I’d love that. What’s wrong?” He lifts my chin.
“I thought I would stay the night. That is if you want me too?” my voice is barely audible
“Oh yes! I want you too! What about TJ? You both came in one car.”
“He is going to drive mine home. He wanted to go into town and work with Annie at the booth. She rode in with Vicki. He is hoping to talk her into a dinner date.”
“Great.I can take you home in the morning.”
“D’quan is covering my chores, so I don’t have to rush. You can drop me here if you want on your way to work.”
Max’s face lights up. “Sounds great to me.”
I meet TJ at my car where he went to give us privacy to talk. He is texting away on his phone.
I grab my overnight bag.
“Hey.” TJ grins.”I take it your man is happy about your plans.”
“He doesn’t know everything. I’m gonna surprise him with that closer to bedtime.”
“Be careful Simon. He is a lot older and more experienced. Let him know he is your first.”
“I’m pretty sure he knows. You and Annie have fun too.”
“Thanks. Do I need to come get you tomorrow afternoon?”
“Nah. Max said he would bring me to the field on his way to work.”
“If you need me for anything, text or call and I’ll be there in a heartbeat.”
“You better not! It’s a half hour drive to his place from the farm. Don’t get in any rushes and wreck my car.” I tease. I know TJ is very careful.
He gets out and gives me a brotherly hug. I jog over to Max and climb into his awaiting vehicle.
“Do you mind if we stop at the farmer’s Market and pick up some fresh veggies and the supermarket?”
I shake my head.
“What would you like for dinner?”
“I don’t care. Whatever you are in the mood for.”
“That would be you.” He grins. ‘ Steak, chicken, pork chops, lamb chops?”
“I’ve never had lamb.”
“That settles it. Lamb it is. We will make Gyros.”
We stop at the market for greens, go by Annie’s booth for goat cheese and mint jelly. Our next stop is a butcher’s shop. He gets ground beef for lunch tomorrow, some fresh bacon and smoked ham for breakfast and the lamb. Our last stop is the bakery. He wants fresh gyro bread, and we get a Carrot cake that looks decadent. I’m gonna gain 20 pounds this month alone the way Max likes to cook. I can’t believe he is in such good shape the way he eats.
When we get to his place, he puts away the food, and we head out to saddle the horses. Despite the heat, the ride is pleasant. The closer to dark the more nervous I get.
Back at the ranch we wash down the horses, have a water fight that ends up with us on the ground tussling, kissing and both of us hard as granite.
We head inside, take a shower and the edge off. After long kisses, jacking each other off under the shower we dress in nothing but shorts. This feels good. I could get used to it. I forget all about what I had planned while we sat on the deck grilling the lamb, chopping the ingredients for the Gyros and talk. I was afraid I wouldn’t like the gyros, but I was wrong. They were delicious, and so was the cake. We filled rest of the evening playing a Video game Max lied. He beat me quickly. The sun had set long ago. Max gave me a longing look. Again I find my feet interesting. It’s a nervous habit. I decide it’s now or never. I get up, unzip my bag and pull out a slip of paper handing it to Max. I study my bare feet once again while he reads.
“Is this what I think it is.” He looks up wide-eyed.
“Yes,” I whisper. My voice is so shaky I hope he could understand the one word.
“You got tested? You haven’t been sick have you?”
“No. I’m fine.”
“I don’t understand why you got tested then. You said you have never been all the way.”
“I don’t want any barriers for my first time. I wanted you to see the paper to know.”
Still looking down I see the paper float to the floor landing not far from my feet. Strong arms envelop me.
“We don”t have to do any more than we have.”
“I want to. I want to experience it all with you.”
“Wow. I don’t know what to say. I didn’t expect this.”
I get more nervous. “Don’t you want me.”
“Yes. He takes my hand leading me to the bedroom.”
“We need to talk first. There is something you need to know about me.”
“You told me before you were clean, you have to get tested regularly for work.” I toy with the hem of my shirt getting more nervous by the minute.
“Yes, babe.It’s more personal. I think you need to understand before I take your precious gift.”
I gaze at him, a worried expression on my face.
“I don’t know how to begin.”
“Tell me.”
“Um. In relationships before we met, I found most of my hookups online or in exclusive clubs. Regular boyfriends usually left once they found this out.”
“Spit it out Max, you’re scaring me.”
“One man has never been enough for me.”
I suck in a deep breath. I feel my eyes widen. I don’t know how to take this. Why hasn’t he told me this before he asked me to date? Has he been cheating?
“Breathe Simon. I can see you are full of questions so ask.”
“Why didn’t you tell me this when you invited me to date?”
“I don’t want to scare you away. I wanted to make sure we had something solid before I sprung this on you.”
“Are you seeing someone or someones else?”
“No. I told you it was just you and I would never take another to bed without telling you first.”
“Have you been to this club you mentioned since we started seeing each other.”
“No Simon. I haven’t felt the need for another man. Maybe meeting the one right one will be enough. I only thought it fair before taking your virginity to let you know. In case, later on, something comes up.”
“If something comes up, then what.”
“I would ask you if you wanted to let the other man into our bed.”
“If I say no then what.”
“We discuss it. It would depend on how I feel or why I had the need.”
“In other words if I am not enough you may need to find someone to fill in the blank spots.”
“That’s not how it works at all Simon. Not for me. I find I am attracted to two very different types of men. I like a gentle, sweet , innocent man, but at times I like—how should I put this—Taming a tiger.”
“I think I understand. I’m not sure how I feel about sharing or having sex with another man I don’t know or not involved with.”
“I would never ask you to do something you won’t enjoy. There are lots of ways to start. At first you may only want to watch. Since we are committed to each other I would never play or have sex with the other man without you there.”
“If I say no?”
“We would have to deal with it when it comes up. Sometimes my need is too much for me.”
“I see.”
“If you want to leave, I will take you home. I know you must be in shock and want to think about this bomb I dropped. It may never come up. I’ve never felt so devoted to one man as I do you. I wanted to tprepare you for when the need aroused”
“Thank you for being so honest.I don’t want to go home.”
“What do you want Simon?”
“I want you to make love to me”

 

 

I hope you are enjoying the story. I know there is a lot going on and a lot of build up. you will soon see why.  Do you like MMM stoires? what do you  like most about them? what do you not like about them?
