Liam is not a family man. He’s learned to avoid the entanglement and its mire of expectations; expectations he’s destined to crush. Unfortunately, his usually placid boyfriend is pushing him into the arms of his new family and he’s fighting every step. When a person he never expected to see again reappears, Liam finds a reason to make a few concessions for the sake of real love and the only man he is willing to call family.

Excerpt:

Optimism and anxiety sparred in his head, pulling his eyebrows into a knot while he transferred clothes from his suitcase to one of the drawers in the dresser.

“What?” Justin sat on the edge of the bed while Liam grabbed a pile of socks for the second trip.

“Nothing.”

“Baby.”

He looked at Justin. “This isn’t going to work.” He stuffed the socks in a drawer.

“What isn’t?”

“Avoiding the truth all weekend.”

“What truth?” Confusion wrinkled Justin’s brow.

“That I’ll be wearing more clothes in the next two days than I do in a week and a half at home.”

Justin took his hand when he was in reach, using it to pull Liam into his lap. “Nobody’s avoiding anything.” Justin wrapped arms around him. “It’s not that big a deal. So, you dance for people. I’ll admit, it’s an unusual career choice but, they’d treat you the same way if you were still waiting tables.”

He nodded at a speech he’d heard before and scowled at the carpet unconvinced. Fingers touched the side of his chin and turned Liam’s head leaving him no choice but to meet Justin’s eyes.

“If you plan to spend all weekend anticipating judgmental bullshit you’ll be disappointed.” Justin caressed his chin with a thumb. “They don’t blame you for something that wasn’t your fault.”

He stared into warm brown eyes and read the rest of the speech. This wasn’t his house or even his town. The hateful people he expected to confront lived one province over and they weren’t coming to dinner. Justin pulled him closer by the fingers on his chin and kissed him.

“Once they get to know you they’re going to love you just like I do. Okay, maybe not just like I do but you know what I mean.”

He smiled at the attempted humor and draped an arm around Justin’s shoulders.

“That’s probably for the best,” he said.

“Probably. Let’s finish unpacking before they wonder what we’re doing in here.”

“I could bounce on the bed a little to answer the question.”

“Always the tease.” Justin pushed him from his lap. “None of that this weekend, okay?”

“It’s not like we can’t be quiet about it.”

Their first apartment had taught them about muting the volume during sex.

“I doubt anything you do could inspire an erection with my parents in the next room.”

Liam cocked an eyebrow at the challenge.

“No.” Justin shook his head and opened his own suitcase. “If you want to get your rocks off you can do it when I’m not in the room.”

“Not even a little of this?” He raised his arms over his head and rolled his hips to an imaginary beat.

“Not even a lot of that.” Justin carried shirts to the closet and swatted his ass on the way by. “Behave yourself.”
