Sometimes you need to go back to your past, in order to move on to your future.
Jax Hunter has spent the last ten years trying to forget his first love Nathan Steele—and the brutal betrayal that derailed everything he’d worked so hard for. Jax has finally gotten his life back together, when Nathan returns to deliver another blow – his company is set to bulldoze the bar he’s built from nothing.
Ever since that summer in high school, Nathan has been denying his feelings for Jax—the only person he’s ever loved. Nathan knows Jax might never forgive him, but when Nathan’s uncle is murdered and Nathan might be next on the hit-list, Jax is the only one he can turn to.
Jax still doesn’t trust Nathan—not with his bar, and for damn sure, not with his heart. But the more time they spend together, the harder it is to resist the undeniable passion between them. Can they overcome their past hurts and learn to trust each other again? Or will another betrayal tear them apart forever?
5 meows 5 purrs
Jax and Nate were best friends, but at the young age of 17 Nates father caught them together and set Jax up to get him expelled from the prestigious school they were attending, thus ruining Jax’s dreams of going to college. Instead, he fought his way( literally through the MMA) to earn enough to open a bar. The Goat is his dream but also a place where the community knows they can come and be themselves. Now once again the Steele’s are out to ruin him by buying the Goat and all the businesses in the area to tear down and make apartments for the wealthy.
Nate decides to be the one to talk to him, hoping he could make things right from the past. The chemistry is still there and though Nate is straight he can’t help his feelings for Jax…the only person he has truly loved. He goes to his Uncle to try to talk them out of taking the goat from Jax and find his uncle dead, with Jax standing over him.( read the excerpt below. You get a taste fo what happens here. It may shock you.) Jax swears he isn’t the murderer and when they find Nate’s apartment ransacked they fear Nate may be next.
I loved both Jax and Nate. I liked the struggle between them and the chemistry. You could feel it crackle every time you read it. The mystery was OK. But I think the main purpose of it was to push Jax and Nate together. I like gay for you stories and this one was awesome and hot.
If you like, millionaires, bartenders, opposites attract, second chances, some mystery/suspense and some scorching man-sex this is for you. I cannot wait for the next book.
Can’t say I was surprised that he was still angry at me after what had happened between us in high school. I had no clue if he’d killed my uncle, but at the moment I’d do and say pretty much anything to get out of here alive. And giving Jax a blow job? I might be telling myself it was to try to earn his trust so I could keep him from killing me, but deep down I knew the truth, even if I refused to really accept it. I wanted this. Wanted him. Just like I’d wanted him all those years ago.
I might not be into any guy but Jax, but blowing him wasn’t exactly a hardship. Hell, it wasn’t like I hadn’t fantasized about it often enough over the last decade. We may not have had very many intimate moments, but they’d been enough to haunt my every need. I’d loved sucking him off—playing with his smooth, hard cock. Jax had made me want things I’d never wanted before—and he made me feel things that had since remained elusive.
But now, with his rigid cock brushing against my lips, I felt myself go hard, and I wanted him with a need I’d never felt for any other man or woman.
And then I reminded myself that I was duct-taped to a fucking chair, and he’d held a gun to me, just moments earlier. Yet none of it mattered, because I was going to give him a fucking stellar blow job, and maybe with a bit of luck, I’d be able to convince him to do the right thing and let me go.
“Fuck, Jax…you taste so good,” I whispered, leaning forward to suck the tip of his hungry erection. “I want you. I’ve always wanted you.”
Jax’s expression was hard to read—always had been. And yet the needy groan that rumbled at his throat was telling enough. He eased his hips forward, thrusting his cock past my lips, as he reached down to cup my face. “Nathan…”
The feel of his hand against my cheek soothed me, reminded me of what had once been between us, before my father put an end to it, and made sure I’d never see Jax again. But as my erection pressed against my jeans, searching Jax out, I pushed away any pleasure I was getting from this. He was my kidnapper, for fuck’s sake, and I needed to find a way out of here before I ended up like my uncle. “I want more, Jax…please…untie me.”
