Exclusive Excerpt from How to Deal
by T.M. Smith
Kory couldn’t speak, couldn’t find the words to say in response to Jon’s declaration. So he answered the question without words, sealing the deal with a kiss. The kiss started out chaste until their tongues got involved. Kory pulled back, breathless and shaking, his eyes still holding an ounce of pain, but the desire Jon saw in the depth of Kory’s eyes was what made his dick twitch.
“I’m scared Jon, and I hope you can understand how fucking hard it is for me to say that. I don’t want to trust anyone, but I trust you. I don’t want to care about anyone because it always ends in pain, but goddamn it, I care about you too. I want this…” Kory waved his hand back and forth between him and Jon. “…thing between us, whatever it is, I want it. I want you Jon. More than I’ve ever wanted anyone else. That scares me too,” Kory said the last few words as a whisper, as if he feared anyone else hearing him speak them.
Jon jerked Kory’s body close, covering his mouth and kissing him hard as he slowly walked him backwards until Kory’s back was up against the wall. Kory moaned and melted into the kiss, releasing all the pent up anguish and relinquishing himself to Jon. When Jon started grinding his hard cock into Kory’s hip, he broke the kiss and slammed his head back against the wall, groaning. Jon took the opportunity to lick a path along Kory’s neck, pulling the collar of his shirt aside and biting down on Kory’s shoulder.
About How to Deal
Jon Brennan comes from a long line of men in uniform; all born and bred to both bleed and wear blue. His family and the majority of his co-workers support him every step of the way, so he doesn’t need to hide the fact that he prefers men over women. Between the job and his larger than life, loud and rowdy half Irish, half Italian family, there isn’t much time for dating, much less finding a guy that can deal with the stress and demands placed on the shoulders of an NYPD Detective.
Kory White is cocky and abrasive with most people, but it is all a mirage, a façade he hides behind to keep his heart safe. As a child, Kory lost his mother to an act of violence. Soon after, he and his baby sister Kassandra were separated by the system. Kassandra was immediately adopted, but Kory spent the next ten years cycling through foster homes before moving to the Big Apple. In an effort to keep everyone at a distance, Kory has meticulously built himself an alter ego: Hayden Cox, All Cocks’ cockiest model.
These two strong willed men definitely prove opposites do attract. Both are stubborn and hard headed to a fault, Kory more so than Jon. But Jon is used to being in control, the one calling the shots, and Kory fights him at every turn. Just when it seems they have found a way to navigate the unchartered territory that is love, tragedy knocks on Kory’s door yet again. Volatile and strong, even in the face of adversity, both men refuse to give up on each other – or their love.
