Exclusive Excerpt from Give Me a Hand
by Gwen Martin
“Want another?” Jude asked from in front of the fridge, raising an eyebrow. Cam’s brain was still fuzzy from the exam he had taken an hour before. He tilted his head up from the couch and blinked owlishly at Jude.
Jude chuckled softly and nodded. “That’s a yes.”
Cam watched Jude shuffle through the small number of drawers in their dorm kitchen, muttering something to himself, the back of his shirt scrunching up as he scratched the base of his spine. Cam chewed on the side of his lip as he remembered the way Jude looked without any clothing.
He’d never seen Jude naked before, but now Cam had that mental picture with the bonus of how Jude looked when he was coming.
He took a deep breath and shook his head. He can’t be sporting a boner when they’re supposed to be having movie night, Jesus.
Cam rolled his head to face the paused movie on the small, flat-screen TV. It was a Christmas gift from Cam’s parents, and with the impressive backlog of Vudu movies that Jude had collected between himself and his older brother, they have a legit set up.
“Dude, Brie Larson is so hot in that suit,” Jude said, handing Cam a beer bottle as he settled to his left onto the too-squishy loveseat.
The dorms seemed to have cheaped out on furniture despite the monstrous amount they charged for rent. Most of the items looked like they came out of an abandoned house that was used two decades before.
About Give Me a Hand
THEIR WORLD COLLIDED. EVERYTHING CHANGED.
Cam and Jude had been college roommates for two years, fitting into each other’s lives with ease.
That is, until Cam walked in on Jude getting off alone in their shared dorm bathroom.
Everything shifted between the two of them, awakening feelings Cam hadn’t felt for anyone in a long time. Feelings Cam believed had shriveled up after surviving a near fatal car accident to then suffer a disastrous breakup with his first love.
Since then, Cam kept his heart sealed tight in a fortress, keeping himself busy with a lot of mindless hookups and a steadfast refusal to ever commit.
Cam’s life had been predictable. He knew what he wanted.
Until that impromptu mutual orgasm with Jude.
Cam didn’t want a boyfriend, and he certainly didn’t need a relationship.
But he knew one thing he did crave and that was more of Jude Ellison.
Will Cam be able to work through his painful past if Jude offered him a chance at more?
