Tease and Denial, Book 1
by Joseph Lance Tonlet
Blurb: Grif believes he’ll live his life as a virgin. After all, who would want him? How could anyone find him, a guy who came with less than man-sized equipment, worthy of their love?
What he hadn’t counted on were the two amazing men who entered his life. Tate, a fun-loving, wealthy college kid and Wes, a handsome, rugged ex-marine who runs his own security firm.
Both men lead Grif through a twisted mesh of pleasure, pain, and denial, as they force him to see his value, despite his size and insecurities.
And the moment you’ve been waiting for! Grif’s Toy cover reveal…
An Excerpt from Grif’s Toy
Unsteadily, I finally asked, “Why are you naked, Tate?”
His reply came from farther away than I’d expected. He’d gone back to leaning against the door frame.
“Has something changed, Grif? Do you not like seeing me naked anymore?”
Was he serious? I turned around to respond but was once again struck speechless as I took in his fit body. God, he was ideal; textbook chest and arms, a flawless stomach, a thick patch of black hair right above a picture-perfect, uncut cock which lay heavily against one thigh.
I gulped with difficulty.
“From the expression on your face,” he began easily, “I can see you do still like looking at me.”
He unhurriedly uncoiled one arm and ran a hand lazily down his stomach. As it slid down past the top of his thigh, he extended his thumb and it slid along his cock from base to tip as his hand continued its downward trek.
I gasped and whispered, “Tate.”
“I’m naked because it’s been three weeks. I understand you’re new to all this, Grif, and I didn’t want to push…but, three weeks, dude?”
“I know.” I quietly sighed.
“Why haven’t you asked? We have an understanding, right? All you have to do is ask.”
“Tate, I… I can’t think with you standing there naked…I just can’t.”
I watched him straighten a bit and then calmly ask, “Would you do me a favor, Grif?”
Completely unsure of where this was going the only response I could manage was a slight, “Huh?”
“Just look at me.”
“B-but I am looking at you, Tate.”
He shook his head slightly. “No, I mean, look at me the way you’d look at me if I weren’t watching you. Look at me the way you really want to, not the way you do when you know I can see you. Just let me see what you’re feeling. Don’t hide.”
I nodded, tried to relax, and ran my eyes over his body—toes to face—and ended looking into his eyes.
He grinned broadly and whispered. “Ah, there it is…I see now.”
I swallowed and asked, “You see what?”
Fire lit his eyes and he said firmly, “On your knees, Grif.”
On my what?
It sounded suspiciously close to an order and I wasn’t at all sure how I felt about that.
“Um, yeah…I don’t think….”
Softer he said, “Grif, trust me, okay? Kneel down…please.”
I nodded and, fucking inexplicably, went down.
“Does that feel better? Make you more at ease, maybe?”
“It makes me feel somewhat humiliated, Tate.” I sucked in a deep breath, “And I’d really like to put a shirt on. But—oddly—I have to admit it does seem more relaxing.”
“Good, I had a feeling it might.” He paused and then continued, “And, to reassure you of something you already know, I can’t see your small dick just because you’re shirtless, Grif.
