I hadn’t meant to look at Luke when I said that, but I was thinking about Brisbane and I was nervous about someone following me around with a camera all day and I wanted to know what he thought about it.

“Aw man, I’m sorry. I didn’t mean anything by it. It’s your business to tell. I understand how having a camera shoved into your face when you’re in the closet would be…tough.”

I turned to Alex, who was in the middle of undressing like me, and told him not to worry.

“I know you didn’t mean anything by it.”

While I missed Graham and Grant, I was happy I had such supportive teammates again. Colton knew what I meant even though I had my mom’s support. I certainly knew how he felt regarding his family.

While I started opening my closet four years ago, I lost the desire to continue, and after a few months passed, I didn’t see the point of going public. My mom tried to get me to date again, but instead, I focused on bulking up and honing my skills. After all, gymnastics had Luke, and then Orion. I didn’t need to be a poster boy. They already had it covered.

“You boys got plans tonight?”

No one did.

“Well, how about we check out a gay bar or two?” Colton suggested.

“What if you’re recognized?” Alex asked.

“Well, no pressure, but if Luke and Orion go, then we’re just supporting our teammates, aren’t we?”

I forced myself not to look over at Luke. He was in the shower on Colton’s other side.

“I doubt Cassandra would let me go,” Luke said.

“I need my sleep. Maybe after the gala?” Alex said.

Orion chimed in. “I’d love to go, Colton, but I think Alex is right. After we’re done, we can definitely hit the bars. I’m legal here!”

“Maybe we stay in the village tonight? Do something there?” I offered.

“Alright, alright. I reckon I can sow my big gay oats another night.”

“Yeah. Sure.” I narrowed my eyes and gave him a look. His oats were being reserved for someone else, and he and I both knew that. He mouthed ‘What?’ at me and I shook my head and smiled.

“So, what do we want to do in the village?” Orion asked.

I tell myself I can do it all over again. And do it better. Even without a boyfriend.

I mean…who better to succeed at the Olympics than me? Though training this close to Cam again and seeing how his body has developed might be too much for me.

Plus, being naked in the locker room with him makes it even harder…to focus.

It doesn’t take long for my pining curiosity to turn into desperate hope.

Is it possible that Cam still has feelings for me?


I relied on Erika to survive my heartbreak. I even made a new friend, the tall glass of water known as Colton. Any normal gay dude would have thrown themselves at him and said, ‘Pick a hole.’

Not me, of course. While I was tempted, at least one part of me didn’t give the green light. My heart.

What was left of it still belonged to Luke.

Without answers for what happened in Brisbane, he’s my teammate again. If only my hormones would mind their own business, then maybe I could focus on the Olympics and worry about Luke after I win.

Piece of ass…I mean, piece of cake.

I’m so fucked.

Floored by Love is a full-length gay romance novel, the second in the Rings Trilogy, with no major triggers, but possibly a little angst. Within these pages, you’ll find notepad flirting, almost-sex in a hospital, freeballing, a wet superhero with a bare ass, five Olympians in a hot tub and muscles flexing beneath designer jockstraps. Oh. It’s also the Olympics again. And though there’s a third book coming, there is no cliffhanger this time.


finn dixon bio imageFinn Dixon is a full-time zookeeper in hot-as-balls Florida that writes hot-as-balls MM romance in his free time. A long-time fan of the genre, he is dipping his toe into the pool of sizzling and spicy writers already out there and hoping to score.

If you liked that opening paragraph, or the self-deprecating sense of humor that came with it, you’ll love his style of writing. When he isn’t being sarcastic or trying to make someone laugh, he spends his other free time annoying his boyfriend, snuggling with two kitties, and giving car-walks to his beloved dog.

Finn also likes watching gay films and shows with happy endings (giggity), playing Animal Crossing, re-watching Jurassic Park, and travelling when he can afford it.

And yes, I like jocks, but I promise all my books won’t be about them.

Or will they?
