Saturday Seductive Studs: Adam 1

I'm taking part in the Saturday Seductive Studs, where I'll be posting a max 200-word snippet from my books. I've decided to dedicate each month to a character, except for the short stories where I'll be dedicating each month to a story.

Last month, A Life Without You had its first year anniversary, so I'm dedicating this month to Adam Maxwell. I hope to share a bit of his character through these snippets. 

This one is from A Life Without You. Adam has just given Jesse a nasty scare with his humor, and came out to him as well in a very unusual way. Jesse's still deep in the closet and in denial in this first chapter of the story. Adam's humor is pretty crude, sarcastic, even:

“What, I see yours all the time but you can‘t see mine? That‘s a little unfair, isn't it?” I say in a calm voice that, in no way, mirrors my aching guts. I‘m scared shitless that he‘ll leave. This was not how I was going to reveal my sexuality to him.
“Pants,” he repeats.
I lift my hands in defeat. “All right, all right.”
I put on a pair of blue boxer briefs and help him up. I have to put my arm around his back to lift him because his injury is causing him so much pain, but the firm press of his shoulder blades against my chest sends a jolt down my underwear and my dick does a little throb.
“Dude! Don‘t stand so close to me,” Jesse shouts, trying not to let his lower back touch my front. As a result there is no way he can shield himself when the sheet rolls off his body and pools around his feet. I see that his penis is still erect. He sees it, too.
“Morning wood. Don‘t get any ideas,” he groans out while we make our way to our en suite bathroom.

You can read the entire excerpt here. The book is available from most online retailers ($6.99). Here are direct links to a few: MLR Press, All Romance eBooks, Amazon, Barnes & Noble. It's also available in paperback from Amazon and B&N ($12.99).

Please visit the Saturday Seductive Studs headquarters to find the other authors sharing snippets from their own works ^.^ 

Until next Saturday!


  1. I loved reading the snippet so much that I continued reading the longer excerpt and well... it's now on my TBR list.

    Btw, I found your post because I went through the links on my blog one by one but I think that most participants use the FB group to locate posts that are on that week.

    1. Yes! I forgot about this yet again, but fortunately I had already scheduled the post ^.^

  2. Very nice! At this rate, I'll never put a dent in my TBR list! :)

    1. Oh I feel your pain! For every book I manage to read from my list, two new pop up.

  3. Definitely a TBR add!

    Great piece, Erica!
