For paramedic Adam Carson, his world is lights and sirens and saving lives.

#manlovesunday Up To Code Sunday

Welcome to another ManLoveSunday !


I sent Taylor a quick text to let him know that the interview was over, if it could even be called that.

He texted me back telling him to meet him at Swany’s, a local pub that served the best fried mushrooms. I checked my watch. It was close to five, must be he was cutting out of work early.

I got to the bar before him and ordered a round. I was celebrating, right? I could totally have a beer at five on a Wednesday.

Taylor arrived, I could hear the click of his cowboy boots on the hardwood floor before I even saw him. Cowboy boots were the typical apparel for the small town in southeast Colorado.

“So, when do you start?” Taylor pulled up a barstool and sat beside me, flagging down the bar tender to get him a beer.

“Tomorrow.” I took a sip and set the beer back on the counter. “You could have told me that the interview was more of a formality. He never even asked me about my work or anything, just gave me the job.”

Taylor shrugged. “Yeah, I figured he wouldn’t spend much time asking questions. But I wasn’t sure if it was a sure thing or not, so I didn’t want to get your hopes up.” Taylor turned towards me and grinned. “So, what did you think of Brandon?”

I took a long pull form my beer this time. Just thinking about Brandon had my nerves on edge. I sucked in a deep breath. “He’s something else.” I paused. “You could have fucking told me he was built like a Greek God. I had no idea I was interviewing with the Mayor of Hunksville.”

Taylor laughed so hard beer shot out of his nose. “What?”

Okay. So Mayor of Hunksville was a little silly. And I immediately regretted saying it. But the point remained. “You never told me he was gay or that he was drop dead gorgeous. It took me fifteen minutes before I could even speak a coherent sentence in front of him.” Actually, I still wasn’t sure that I could form rational thoughts when Brandon Surlin was within five feet of me.

And then they lived happily ever after…

Sometimes Joshua Stone thinks he’s died and gone to heaven. How else can he explain Michael’s love for him? And now they’re living together… in a real relationship. This is the stuff of fairy tales, a love like other people take for granted.

Sure, they have their moments, what couple doesn’t? But a small doubt lingers in Joshua’s heart. Can this really be true? Can a gorgeous man like Michael really love someone like Joshua—the guy with cerebral palsy, who’s helpless without his walker or his tricycle to get him around?

Michael senses Joshua’s worries, but there’s nothing he can do to dispel them because that would mean revealing his secret—and he’s not ready for that. Their mutual secrets hang between them like time bombs waiting to explode. They might not survive the inevitable blast.

From Chapter One:

“I’m awake! I’m awake, really!” Joshua panted.

“Really? I don’t want to take advantage of you, you know.”

“Michael! Excuse me for being tired. I keep going to bed later than I should because someone… namely you”—Joshua poked a finger into Michael’s chest—“works overtime all freaking week, and when said someone comes home, he still expects me to spend time with him.”

A guilty feeling settled in the pit of Michael’s gut. He inspected Joshua’s face more thoroughly, difficult as it was with only a small sliver of moonlight illuminating their bedroom, and noticed blue smudges under his eyes that hadn’t been there weeks ago. Furrowing his brows, Michael slid his gaze over Joshua’s face. Joshua had always been slim—too slim in Michael’s opinion, but that was a sore topic with Joshua—but now his cheeks were hollowed, accentuating his sharp cheekbones even more.

“Michael, do not freak out on me now, okay? It’s all fine.”

“You can go to bed if you’re tired; you don’t need to wait for me.” Michael tried not to wince when he mentally added, especially not on Tuesdays and Thursdays because on those days, I’ll always be late.

“Then we’d most likely only see each other on the weekends.” Joshua pressed a kiss to Michael’s lips, licking along the seam and demanding entrance. Joshua’s boldness had only developed recently, but wow, what a total turn-on it was for Michael.

Michael opened his mouth for Joshua’s exploration, quashing the urge to apologize to Joshua—again. It wasn’t his fault he currently had to drive up to Philadelphia each day for work, and he certainly couldn’t afford to say no to this job.

He’d finally managed to score a real job with some benefits. A couple more months and they could look for a new car… one Joshua could climb into on his own.

Joshua unlocked their lips, sighing. “I… I don’t think I can… I mean….”

Michael tilted his head, still reeling from the intense sensations Joshua’s tongue had evoked. Joshua’s left hand flopped next to his side and his right hand moved restlessly. Smiling, he said, “Bad muscle control?”

Joshua seemed to force his gaze up before he nodded. Michael captured his lips in a searing kiss. “Can I ride you?”
