I'm going to do these as I can. Hopefully I'll be able to keep up daily/mostly daily posts for Smutty Advent. Who can believe it's already December?
Neal walked in the door and stopped, his mouth dropping open. It looked like Christmas has exploded all over the place. There were lights everywhere, hanging from the railings of the loft, of the stairs, and hanging like waterfalls of color along the walls. There were santas and elves and various other little Christmas knick knacks on every flat surface. The coffee table now boasted several seasonal bowls full of various candies.
The only thing in the room not decorated was the eight foot fir. It was green and bare of anything but it's needles.
"Did you run out of steam?" Neal asked as he finally shut the door behind him and walked into the place.
"No, I thought we should do the tree together."
"Oh, that's a great thought. Thank you."
"What about the rest of it, do you like it?" Way asked, biting his lower lip.
"I do - it's kind of like the North Pole exploded all over the place." There was even a free-standing sign in one corner with "north pole" written on it.
"It's not too much, is it? We only ever had a tree with lights when I was growing up and I've always wanted to have lots of decorations."
Neal drew his boy to him and held him. "No it's not too much at all. I think it's just right. Like you."
Way beamed up at him and Neal brought their mouths together, wanting - as always - to taste Way's joy.
He would have to make sure there were lots of brightly wrapped gifts under the tree this year for Way, but as far as he was concerned, the best gift of all was already in his arms.
Neal and Way are from The Closet Boy and The Dom's Way, both of the Iron Eagle Gym series.
Neal McPherson is an unattached Dom in his midtwenties and a member of the gym. One evening after working out, he notices Way’ra on the stairs and he’s immediately attracted and intrigued, so he asks Way’ra out. Unable to come up with a reason to refuse and also interested in Neal, Way’ra accepts.
There are a lot of obstacles to the relationship they attempt to build after their date, not least of which is Way’ra’s upbringing and his lingering doubts about the kinky sex Neal enjoys. But with patience and persistence, Neal might convince Way’ra not only to accept himself, but to loosen his inhibitions enough to explore and find a happy ending together.
The Closet Boy is available at Dreamspinner Press.
As they learn what works best for them both, Way has trouble obeying some of the rules Neal imposes. Like the no touching himself rule. Neal wants Way to learn control, but Way, after so long holding back, has trouble not indulging. The two men must work together to find the balance that brings them each the most satisfaction and happiness.
