Chapter One

Chase Rivers

I’ve always told people to trust their gut. Go with their instincts. So why didn’t I follow my own advice, you ask? I was lonely and horny.

I met Devon Bellows while tending bar at Bottoms Up. He was a great mix of sexy and sweet with a heaping side of flirty. My lonely heart revved up every time he came in. It took him months to talk me into going out with him, because I just had a niggling suspicion he was involved in a relationship. It wasn’t anything obvious like a tan line on his ring finger; it was more subtle like the randomness of his visits to the bar, as if they coincided with his partner being out of town.

 Don’t think I didn’t share my observations with Devon, because I did. He was adamant that he wasn’t in a relationship and his visits coincided with his traveling for work, not a phantom lover. So, I finally agreed to go on a date with him, even though I wasn’t convinced.

Again, you ask why didn’t I listen to my gut, follow my instincts? I already told you I was lonely and horny, and I was, but there’s so much more to the story. Buckle your seatbelts, because it’s a bumpy ride. 

I looked across the table at Devon Bellows, my eyes taking in every lovely feature of his face. He really was a very good looking man. I didn’t normally find myself attracted to the preppy type, but there was something about Devon that got to me. Maybe it was his lively, pale blue eyes that shined when he smiled.

He brought me to a swank, new restaurant called Olivia’s, where the wait staff treated us like royalty. The wine was amazing, the food was out of this world, but the company…not so great. He spent most of the evening on his cellphone and quite honestly I’d had enough. This was the guy who pursued me relentlessly for over four months, never wanting to accept “no” for an answer. I finally relented and agreed to go out with him and for what? To be ignored?

I removed my linen napkin from my lap and set it on the table beside my plate. I took one last sip of the delicious wine before I scooted my chair back and rose to my feet. That got his attention. I reached into my pant pocket and pulled out my wallet.

“What are you doing?” He asked while I started pulling enough bills out to cover my portion of the dinner.

“I’m going home.”

“No,” he said, reaching across the table to grab my hand. “I’m so sorry about all of the interruptions, Chase. I’ve been terribly neglectful. Please stay.”

He looked sincere and contrite, but my gut told me to walk out the door and not look back. “Tell me one good reason why I should stay?”

“It’s my birthday.”

“Oh,” I said, not expecting that answer. “I didn’t know or I would have bought you a gift.”

“You are my gift.” This was said in a low, seductive voice. Those twinkling, devilish eyes did very funny things to my stomach. “All those interruptions were text messages and Facebook notifications from friends and family wishing me a happy birthday.” Devon released my hand to turn off his phone. “I’m all yours now. No more interruptions. Please stay and have some dessert and coffee.”

Those eyes. That voice. I caved.

Shawna prefers fantasy books for the most part, but will read pretty much any type of fiction with LGBT characters. She prefers books with great secondary characters as well as main characters. And, she is really tired of lesbian romance novels where one character is/was straight and/or married to a guy. Despite that, she recently enjoyed Clare Ashton’s That Certain Something.
