Exclusive Excerpt from My Anti-Marriage
by DJ Jamison
Chris gulped two glasses of water, took a leak, and got in the shower. Before he could start the spray, Ant walked in.
“Don’t even think of joining me,” Chris warned. “Whatever happened last night will never happen again.”
“Oh, relax,” Ant said. “I’m here to piss.”
He proceeded to do just that. His bladder obviously wasn’t shy. Chris turned on the shower to block out the noise.
“We didn’t fuck,” Ant said, his voice carrying over the sound of the water. “You’d be feeling me if we did, and you don’t feel me. Do you?”
Chris clenched his jaw, annoyed by Ant’s ego. Then he clenched his ass. Ant was right. No one had been inside him in far too long; he’d feel it if he’d been fucked.
“Maybe I fucked you.”
He didn’t know why he said that. He felt contrary, waking up with a huge mistake in his bed. Didn’t help that all his friends had coupled up while he failed again and again to meet a nice — or even normal — guy.
Ant laughed. “Yeah, right. That’s a good one.”
Chris poked his head around the shower curtain, getting a nice view of Ant’s muscular back and ass as he stood at the toilet.
“I wasn’t joking!”
“Nothing happened,” Ant insisted. “We got drunk; we crashed. End of story.”
Ant was tan, a nice toasted brown, everywhere. Chris stared until Ant flushed the toilet, then jerked his head back into the shower, hissing as his water turned scalding hot.
Finally alone, Chris hurried to finish washing and dry off. After wrapping a towel around his waist, he returned to the bedroom, hoping Ant would be gone.
Ant stood next to the bed, distractingly naked. Pecs. Abs. Thighs. DICK. Chris’s gaze flitted over him. How could he not look with all that in front of his face? It took a minute for him to notice that Ant was tugging on his finger.
More precisely, tugging at a ring on his finger. His ring finger.
“What’s that?” Chris asked.
“A fucking ring, what’s it look like?”
“Is this some kind of joke?”
“Yeah, I love shackling myself in jewelry that doesn’t fit,” Ant muttered. Then he did a double-take and snatched Chris’s left hand, raising it between them. “Fuck, is that …”
Chris stared at the matching gold band.
“Oh my God. It’s a wedding ring.”
About My Anti-Marriage
Can one drunken night in Vegas and a pair of wedding rings lead to a happily ever after?
Love has never been a good bet for Chris, so going on a Vegas wedding trip for his friends is bittersweet. Especially when Ant, the last man to break his trust, is suddenly along for the ride. Which explains why Chris wakes up in his hotel room with the mother of all hangovers. Not so much why Ant is in his bed … or worse, wearing a matching wedding band.
Ant invited himself on a Vegas trip, gambling on a second chance with the man who got away. He never dreamt he’d be the one with a wedding ring on his finger, but if their predicament gets Chris talking to him again, he’ll make the most of it.
Between keeping their secret from friends and trying to figure out what really happened that first crazy night in Vegas, passions ignite. If they can hold on to their fresh start, maybe the Vegas motto doesn’t have to hold true: What happens in Vegas doesn’t have to stay there.
