RELEASE DATE: 08.20.18
COVER DESIGN: JAY AHEER/
Surf and sand, beach and bar-tending, and practicing Taoism are the important things in Jeremy Ringer's life. Until a death in the family sends him across the state, and he realizes that it's not enough. By trusting the wrong people, he is pushed toward sexy police specialist, Oliver Mendosa.
Ollie Mendosa is only interested in one thing, the new police app he's developing. That is until he meets a victim of crime, surfer-boy, Jeremy Ringer. When his protective nature is brought out in full force, he can't resist the temptation of a summer fling.
Is it possible for these two men, from such different worlds, to overcome their differences and fears in order to find the love they both desire?
Ollie reached out across the table and grabbed Jeremy’s hand. “I like this. We seriously have to go out more. You know? Like a date. A real date. I’m gonna take you.” He rubbed Jeremy’s knuckles with his thumb, loving the feel of their strong hands combined.
“I don’t care about that sort of thing.”
“I only want to enjoy whatever we do. We get to make our own rules. Right?”
Ollie laughed. “Is that more of that Zen shit?”
“Tao.” Jeremy’s brows furrowed, making Ollie laugh until Jeremy smiled. “Shut up.”
“You keep telling me that.”
Before he could say anything, the guy from behind the counter showed up with the carafe of coffee. He was cute with big blue eyes and blond hair.
Jeremy pulled his hand away, scowling. “That was quick.”
The waiter cocked his hip to the side. “I only have one speed around here.”He snapped his fingers. “Fast!” Then he winked at Ollie.
The guy dashed off, and Ollie stared after him for a moment, before turning to Jeremy and lifting an eyebrow. “What?”
Jeremy busted out laughing.
Ollie chuckled. “Now, stop it...”They sipped coffee and talked until their food came.
Afterward, with a full belly, Ollie wondered about what was next. He didn’t want to end this time relaxing with Jeremy. “So, what? You’re hanging out at the beach all weekend, J?”
“Yep. I called work. I have more time before Sheila could work me back into the schedule, so that’s the plan. Hanging out in the sun doing nothing is so damned good sometimes. I think I need that right now. You know?”
“Yeah. I want to hang out with you. Is that okay?”
Jeremy nodded, his eyes sparkling with excitement. He fingered the shark tooth necklace he wore. “When do you have to go back?”
He shrugged. “Depends. I don’t have to report anywhere. If I catch a case, well...”He held a hand up. “But even that isn’t like immediate. I have a few other guys in the field with the app now to help.”
“Okay then. Let’s pay up and get out of here. There’s sand and surf calling!”
