Jeremy worked his ass off from Halloween to the 23rd of December, making hundreds of custom iron tools and decorations. The 24th he went home, showered, and slept.
A soft kiss was what woke him, a gentle touch fluttering over his belly. He kept his eyes closed, not wanting to be up yet. That’s when Simon’s hands began to work the tops of his legs, not afraid to touch his stumps as Simon brought amazing ease to his overworked muscles.
“Beautiful.” He had to smile. Had to. This was heaven. His master, his bed, home.
“Merry Christmas, boy,” Simon said softly, pressing a kiss to the end of his left leg. Then the massage began again, Simon knowing just how to ease him.
“Merry Christmas, Master. Love.” Jeremy let his legs spread.
Simon groaned, hands sliding up to his hips. “You’ve been so busy, it’s wonderful to have you to laze in bed with, and more.”
“More. I like more with you.” He stretched up, his back popping.
“Are you sure you’re up to some Christmas nookie? It will keep if necessary.” Simon kept stroking his skin.
“I live for Christmas orgasms, beautiful.”
“Then I will make sure you have as many as we can pack in.” Simon leaned against him and brought their mouths together, kissing him, long and deep, the beloved body resting on him.
This was why he worked so hard -- to deserve this.
Simon lay next to his snoring lover, grinning. Every part of his body was melted and limp. Every part. Of course a half dozen orgasms and getting out of bed for no more than grabbing the food they'd ordered would do that to a man.
He'd be sleeping as hard as Jeremy was, except he hadn't had the luxury of watching his boy in far too long, so he simply relaxed and looked. A very Merry Christmas to him.
Simon and Jeremy are a Hammer couple. Their book is Forged.
Simon is not sure he'll ever find the right sub for him. His last relationship ended badly, but he's determined not to let it rule his life, so he heads for the Hammer, his favorite members-only club. A man never knows what will come his way at the Hammer, and at least his friends there know and love him.
Big, buff cowboy Jeremy just got a job as a bouncer at the Hammer, and he thinks Simon is the hottest thing he's seen in a long time. He's never found a Dom who suits him, but Simon might just be the thing to cure his bedroom blues.
Their relationship heats up fast, but just as things seem to be as good as they can get, tragedy strikes. All of their friends from the Hammer gather to support Jeremy and Simon, but all of the support in the world might not be enough to make Jeremy let Simon in again. Can Simon hold it together long enough to convince Jeremy they're worth the effort, no matter what?
