Today I am so pleased to welcome Aimee Nicole Walker to Joyfully Jay. Aimee has come to talk to us about her latest release, Saints Like Him. She has also brought along a great giveaway. Please join me in giving her a big welcome!
Cash reached the car before Nick thought to shut off the engine. He killed the sleek beast and reached across his body for the handle. Cash opened the door as soon as the locks disengaged. “This is a surprise.” The deep, gruff voice sent a shiver of excitement down his spine.
“A pleasant one I hope.” Nick plastered a smile on his face, but his voice betrayed his exhaustion. His words sounded thick like the molasses his mother had put in her gingerbread cookies, reminding him of why he’d made the trek. He’d needed the comfort of home to heal and recharge. His professionally decorated but impersonal condo just wouldn’t do. There was no warmth or Cash to be found there.
Cash’s beautiful smile faltered with concern, and Nick knew he’d heard the weariness too. “Of course I’m pleased to see you.” His gaze fell to the sling, and Nick knew Cash was seconds away from pulling him from the car and making a fuss.
Nick hadn’t latched his seat belt after opening the gate, so he swung his legs around and placed his feet on the graveled driveway. Bracing the hand of his good arm on the dashboard, Nick levered himself out of the car. Cash hadn’t stepped back, so they were nearly touching when Nick stood up. The scent of Cash’s aftershave tickled his nose, and his body heat drew Nick even closer as if an invisible rope pulled them together. The urge to hug Cash was too intense to ignore, but he needed closer contact than his sling would permit. Nick slid a hand inside Cash’s open shirt and settled his hand on the bare skin above the waistband of his jeans. Intelligent, sky-blue eyes widened, and Cash’s mouth parted in surprise. Before Nick’s brain could even process his next move, he leaned in and kissed Cash. It was just a mere brush of flesh, but it felt like someone had hooked Nick’s heart to a set of jumper cables. His chin tingled from the brief rasp of beard bristles, and the sharp lines drew Nick’s gaze to the mouth he longed to kiss again.
“Oh.” Cash’s eyelashes fluttered before he lowered his eyelids to half-mast, making it impossible to tell if he felt the spark too or if Nick’s gesture had just caught him off guard. Cash was a pro at shuttering his thoughts from others. Except for the weekend when I’d kept him naked and sated. The pink tip of Cash’s tongue appeared and made a quick swipe over his lips. An act of nervousness, or was he seeking Nick’s taste? The urge to push his luck and swoop in for another kiss was strong, but he suppressed it.
Redemption Ridge, Book 3
From ex-con to self-made millionaire, there’s no challenge too tough for Cash Sweeney to conquer. So why has he spent twelve years pining for his best friend instead of doing something about it? Because losing Nick would be like existing with half of his heart. Is it better to settle for what he can have or battle for what he wants?
Banged up and burned out, FBI Agent Nick Scott arrives at Redemption Ridge with a trunkful of luggage and a yearning heart. Cash is easy to love but hard to read, and Nick fears his epiphany has come too late. Does he tuck his tail and run or fight for the man who’s become his home?
Tender gestures and heartfelt conversations lead to thrilling revelations neither man can ignore. No more what-ifs or maybes. Cash and Nick are all in. And they’ll need each other more than ever when a devious enemy emerges from the shadows to put their promising future at risk. With the stakes so high, will the guys double down or fold to pressure?
Saints Like Him is book three in the Redemption Ridge series. Though each story features a different couple, reading the series in order is essential. Saints Like Him contains mature themes and is intended for adults.
Content Warning: homophobia, abuse, and conversion therapy are briefly discussed in this book, though no graphic descriptions are used.
