♡ Excerpt ♡
Water ran freely from the bathroom sink faucet. Jace brushed his teeth and splashed water once again over his face, trying to sober up. What the hell was Colt doing here? For a minute on the beach he thought his drunken mind played tricks on him. It was the reason he’d forced himself on Colt. Surely to God his mind couldn’t have created the spicy, sweet musk of Colt’s delicious scent or those spine tingling feelings when their bodies touched. Right?
Apparently, Jace’s raging hard-on sure thought this was all very real. And he splashed his face again with cold water before reaching for a towel.
Looking himself over in the mirror, Jace picked up the brush and pushed it through the tangles of his hair and away from his face. The long ends fell forward again, until he shoved them behind his ears. Jace stared at himself in the mirror. “Sober up. Sober up now. You need your wits about you. What the fuck is he doing here and not with his wife? Sober up, now! He’s married. Colton is a married to a woman! Sober up, Jace Montgomery!”
Jace racked his brain, but still couldn’t come up with anything to help make sense of this. This couldn’t be possible. And hiding in the bathroom wasn’t going to make Colt go away. Unless he dreamed this and Colt hadn’t really come here. Could Jace have finally snapped? Maybe Colt and the all too real kiss only happened inside the confines of his alcohol-clouded mind?
Opening the door to the bathroom, Jace looked out and saw nothing. Poking his head around the door, he listened and heard nothing. A small amount of relief filled him, but the yearning for Colt gripped his heart, and the ache of that loss followed quickly behind. Could he be so past the point of normal behavior that he could have imagined touching Colt? Walking slowly down the hall, he caught a shadow and his heart did a small leap. Taking the corner into the living room, Jace stopped mid-step. Colt was there, hands tucked into the pockets of his shorts, his feet spread apart, and his gaze focused directly at him. They both simply remained frozen in place, staring at one another. Neither said a word. Jace’s heart began to race in his chest. He could feel the tears threatening to fall. Colt was everything he remembered and so much more.
Ten years ago, Colt stood in that very same position, waiting for him to go swim in the ocean. Jace desperately wanted to relive that moment. Not moving, afraid his legs would fail him, he finally spoke. His voice cracked at the emotion pouring through him, but he forced the entire sentence out.
“Why are you here?”
“I couldn’t keep living this lie for a minute more. I’ve been sober for two hundred and eighty-three days. My sobriety requires me to apologize to you, but my heart can’t take another day without you knowing how much I still love you, and how deeply sorry I am for the pain I’ve caused you.” Colt didn’t move as he spoke, his deep blue eyes pinned and held Jace where he stood. Hope and longing rushed through his body stealing Jace’s breath and voice.
Jace managed to lift a hand to steady himself against the doorframe. He thought about what Colt said, and after replaying the words in his mind, things didn’t add up. “You’re a married man, Colton. I’m not sure what you want from me. You can’t come here and say things like this. It isn’t fair.”
