Exclusive Excerpt

“I love your fingers, but I want to taste the rest of you.”

Joshua responded with a grunt that thrilled Brandon. His beautiful pianist was close now, and he was going to push him over the edge. Brandon crawled over him, stopping to unbutton Joshua’s pants. Brandon couldn’t believe Joshua was still half-dressed, but maybe he was shy about his body. He had no reason to be, in Brandon’s opinion. He liked Joshua’s light build and rangy frame. Fuck, he just liked him in general. Better not to think about that now. He would just focus on giving the pianist the best head of his life.

Just as he was about to unzip Joshua’s pants, a hand stilled him.

“Wait,” Joshua said. Brandon looked up at him, suddenly worried that he offended the other man. He stopped, waiting for Joshua to explain. “I don’t think you’ve earned my cock yet.” Brandon looked back at him blankly, unsure if he had heard correctly.


“You heard me. I don’t think you’ve earned my cock.” Joshua smiled at Brandon now, that confident look blazing in his eyes. The wheels were turning in Brandon’s head. Shit, this guy was full of surprises. He was happy to play along and see where this game took him.

“So, that’s how you want to do this?” Brandon asked archly.

“Yes. Is that a problem?”

“No, I like it. What’s next?”

“That’s for me to decide, isn’t it?”


“And what if it’s something you don’t like?”

“I say stop.”

“Perfect. Now turn around and get on your knees.”

“Yes,” Brandon practically squeaked. He did his best to comply quickly, but he felt clumsy in his excitement. Once in place, he looked over his shoulder at Joshua, a question in his eyes.

“Now tell me what you want.” Joshua commanded.

Brandon could feel his limbs shaking now, like the force of his desire had overwhelmed his whole nervous system. Sensing his nerves, Joshua wrapped his hand around Brandon’s hip and pulled him back until they were pressed together. Brandon moaned in relief.

“I want to suck your cock,” He sighed.

“I know that. What else do you want?” Joshua asked again as he ran his hand over Brandon’s chest and stomach. Brandon felt Joshua’s erection press against his ass and pushed back so he could grind against it. Now Joshua let out an approving grunt that sent blood rushing to Brandon’s dick. He leaned further back so Joshua’s whole body was flush against him. He rubbed again and again, desperate to feel more.

“What do I want?” Brandon breathed. “I want to touch your body, all of it. And I want to suck you off.”

“Yes, you’ve said that repeatedly.” Joshua laughed.

“I’m sorry. I just really do.” Brandon whimpered as Joshua pinched his nipple.

“What a hungry mouth you have.” Joshua brushed his fingers over Brandon’s lips. “Show me how you’ll do it.”


one step forward two steps back coverBallet Boys Series, Book 1

A stuffy composer meets a flirty ballet dancer. Can these opposites make music together, or will their dreams pull them apart? This is a sweet and steamy MM romance set against the sun-soaked hills of Los Angeles.


I should be applying for grad school. Or looking for a job. Anything to get out of my awful rut. But instead, I’m obsessing about the dancer I hooked up with at the ballet studio. Who would have thought a gig playing the piano would lead to the hottest sex of my life? Before we got down to it, I think I promised to help out on a dance concert he’s producing. I was in such a lust haze, I barely remember. He’d better text soon. I wonder if he’s still interested in seeing me in a *very* unprofessional capacity.


I can barely focus on the upcoming dance concert or my move to New York. I’m thinking about that cute pianist instead. Did I tell him that I’m moving? Things happened so fast between us I can’t remember. I’ve never had an experience like that where I was totally unraveled by a stranger. If I wasn’t about to move across the country, I would definitely want to go another round. But I’m leaving, so no more hot domination games with Joshua. I’ve got to keep things professional and not fixate on the way his elegant fingers moved across my body.

One Step Forward, Two Steps Back is the first book in the Ballet Boys series. Each book is a standalone, but for maximum enjoyment, I suggest starting with book one.


My name is Cyd Sidney and I write queer, romantic tales with a lot of spice/steam/heat (let’s just call it sex). My stories are funny, surprising, and include lots of banter. I’m thrilled that you’re here and hope you’ll join me for the ride!
