Exclusive Excerpt

Once the door was closed behind us, Bennett turned to face me.


I raised my eyebrows. “Yes?”

He took a small step forward, closing the space between us, and pressed his lips to mine. I made a noise of surprise in the back of my throat and Bennett pulled away quickly.

“I’m sorry. Was that not okay?”

My hands went to his waist and pulled him back toward me, closer, until our bodies were touching. “It was perfect. I just wasn’t expecting it. Give me a chance, you know, to prepare myself.”

“Oh.” His voice was quiet, and it sent a shiver through me. “Are you prepared now?”

I nodded. “Something like that.” I dipped down and kissed him. He exhaled sharply through his nose as our mouths opened to one another, our tongues sliding together as I pulled him even closer. He draped his arms over my shoulders, loosely holding the back of my neck, and I buried my fingers in the t-shirt he was wearing, bunching it in my hands as I gripped him tight.

Everything seemed to disappear in that moment as we kissed. There was nothing but the sound of our breaths coming quickly, the crack of the bat against the ball outside of the box, and the thundering of my pulse in my ears. After several endless moments of kissing, Bennett pulled away, just enough to meet my gaze, and looked directly into my eyes. His pupils were wide and his lips were pink and a little swollen from my stubble. The sight of him made my cock twitch.

“Everything okay?”

He nodded slowly. “Better than okay.”

“Then why’d you stop?”

He looked down and chuckled, which is when I noticed he was hard, too, his erection pressing into my hip. His voice was barely more than a whisper when he spoke. “I think I’ve had enough baseball for today. How about you?”

One grew up pinching pennies. The other with a silver spoon in his mouth. Can they find a way to meet in the middle?

Bennett has spent his life scraping to get by. When he learns his mom has cancer, he hustles to find a trial treatment she’s eligible for to get her the care she deserves thanks to a charitable foundation.

It’s at the grant awards dinner when Bennett locks eyes with Dex, a strikingly handsome older man. Their attraction is immediate. Their chemistry electric. In the following days, they can’t bear to be apart.

It doesn’t take long for Bennett to discover Dex is harboring a huge secret. When he finds out that Dex is the benefactor of the charitable foundation, will he be able to look past Dex’s riches and see him for the man he truly is? Or will Bennett be too blinded by his own pride to allow himself to be seen as a charity case?
