Exclusive Excerpt

He leans back against the door and slides his hands into his pockets, like he’s admiring a painting he just finished. “Alright. Tell me what you want.”

Heat spreads up my neck as I stare at him. Seriously? He has to be fucking with me. “You already know, or you wouldn’t be here.” I straighten my back with as much dignity as I can find in this position and wait for him to do his job.

Instead, he starts to leave.

“Wait,” I yelp. If I waste this chance, I’ll never be brave or stupid enough to try again. “I want to know what it’s like to fuck around with another guy. Whether it feels the same as when I’m with a girl.”

The corner of his mouth curls up at that, a dangerous glint in his eyes. “In that case, let’s be specific. Tell me exactly what you think I should do to you.”

“You’re kidding,” I breathe. Of course he’s not. Goddamn it. I could have gone to some club in New York City and had a cute boy buy me a drink.

He checks the heavy silver watch hanging loose on his wrist. “I don’t have forever.”

“I don’t know what to say.” I study my dirty sneakers between his polished black Oxfords.

That’s not true.

Everything comes crowding to the tip of my tongue like he opened some kind of gate. Everything dark and hidden and hungry and shameful, everything that made me bawl into my pillow because I just don’t understand why I can’t be the son my parents proudly believe I am.

When I look up, he’s watching me with a challenge in the sun-dappled river of his eyes.

“I want…” I swallow painfully and try again. “I have these dreams sometimes. Can I just tell you about one of those?”

He tips his head expectantly.

“There’s this guy. And I’m there too, obviously. He, uh, I guess he unzips my pants.” I cringe, closing my eyes partly so I can remember better and mostly so I don’t have to look at him. “He starts touching me, and I get hard. He pushes my underwear down and strokes me, fast, not gentle.” There’s an ache behind my fly, leaking and swelling. I lick my dry lips. “And he asks, does a girl get you this hard? And when I’m like stop, please, I’m gonna come, he doesn’t, uh, stop.”

“Do you come?”

I open my eyes. “Yeah, but please don’t be offended if you can’t…you know. You’re very attractive. It’s just that I’m pretty sure I’m—”

“Straight?” he finishes for me. His eyes work their way down my body, then back up to my face, and his brows furrow. Paired with his glasses it’s kind of cute, like a perplexed nerd. “I’ll be honest; you’re not selling it.”

“The point,” I grumble, “is that I’m going to hate every minute of this.”

Both of us look down at the monster erection straining the zipper of my jeans. “Oh, God,” I whimper, my stomach twisting in panic.

You can’t fly without falling, so close your eyes and let go.

People ask me if I’m human. If I have feelings. If I’ve ever loved anyone. I’m the lawyer who has never lost a case because I have nothing else to live for.

Until Jonah.

He’s my complete opposite: a reckless boy twelve years younger than me, made of sunshine and wicked smiles, pure and breathtaking.

It all starts with a secret. He wants to find out if he’s bi, and he begs me to teach him because we’ll never see each other again.

Until he shows up on my doorstep with nowhere else to go. I can’t draw lines faster than we blur them. He’s the unstoppable force; I’m the immovable object. When we collide, things get filthy. Complicated. More beautiful than I ever could have imagined.

He’s the only person ever to learn the truth: I’ve always been human. I’ve always had feelings. I’ve been so, so afraid to lose.

Because the moment we find enough trust to jump is the moment we realize our wings might be too broken to fly.

A heartfelt, emotional story of two lonely souls searching for meaning, featuring a bi awakening, grumpy/sunshine opposites attract, an age gap, and a main character with a disability.

The books in this series take place in the same universe and have recurring characters, but each book is a standalone that can be read separately or in any order!


Riley Nash, based in the rainy PNW, writes M/M romances about boys who fall hard, face the darkness, and never give up on each other.

Fueled by cute dogs, those weird Coke with Coffee drinks, and projecting my personal issues onto handsome men and making them fall in love.
