It was a few minutes to midnight, almost Christmas Day. And Dex knew that come oh, probably four am, three overexcited two year olds were going to be screaming with excitement.
Right now, though, it was quiet. A beautiful peace that he knew well enough to enjoy for as long as they had it.
This hadn’t been the life he asked for. It hadn’t been the life he wanted.
But it was his.
Kent turned from where he’d been putting presents under the tree, the lights twinkling on the tree behind him shining through his wild curls and turning them into a halo. Kent beamed at him and Dex beamed right back.
Nope. Not the life he’d asked for or wanted, but it was the life he wouldn’t give up for the world.
“Merry Christmas,” Kent told him.
Dex nodded. “The merriest.”
Dex and Kent are from Of Love.
Then, into Kent’s life comes triathlete Dex Lochland, who also happens to be a successful app designer, and the two of them hit it off. They soon begin a relationship full of fun, sex, laughter, and love. But when Kent learns his attempt at fatherhood with the surrogate has succeeded, Dex is shocked. Unknown to Kent until that moment, Dex has never wanted children.
Kent's decision before he met Dex might cost him the man of his dreams.
