Tuesday Guest Tickle: Touch Me Not by Genna Donaghy
I had the great privilege of reading this book, first in draft chapters, and later in beta.
Best $6 you’ll ever spend. (Unless you want to buy Bite Me Tender, too. Then it’s the second-best $6.)
Here’s a tidbit to whet your appetite:
Luckily the room wasn’t far away. His shoulders burned from the weight of the man. He almost dropped him while opening the door and accidentally bumped the man’s head on the way in. Fancy Suit swore and woke with a start, hands and feet flailing. It was too much, and they both fell in a tangle of limbs as the door closed behind them.
“What?” Fancy Suit looked around blearily. “Where…”
“You’re drunk.” Jake had had about enough of this. He pushed him away and stood. “I got you a room for the night. Stay put and sleep it off.”
“What’s goin’ on? I don’t…”
Jake sighed and pulled him back to his feet with every intention of propelling him to the bed.
“Wait,” the man said. Before Jake could stop him, he reached out to place a hand on the back of Jake’s neck. His ungloved hand.
A tingle of warmth went through Jake, from the point of contact, through his skin, and down to pool in his heart. He looked into the man’s—Henry’s—smoky black, confused eyes, and deep affection stole over him.
Henry’s face broke into a wide, drunken smile, and Jake felt himself returning it.
“Stay,” Henry told him and pulled Jake to the bed. “Stay.” It was a direct order, and Jake couldn’t have refused it, even if he’d wanted to.
