Time Out by Alison Hendricks

He was my best friend. My first love. The man I wanted to give everything to. But he didn't want me. He chose a life in the closet, a life governed by his bigoted family over a life with me. And I don't really blame him. I'm not an easy guy to deal with. Since Brendan's been gone from my life, I've become the biggest Grindr sl*t in town. Even my friends think I'm an a**hole.

Now Brendan's back, and thanks to my own stupidity and a freak zip-line accident, he has a professional reason to put his hands all over me twice a week.

After all this time, I still want him. But he's not some random hookup. If I give my body to him, I know I'll end up giving my heart, too.


I never thought I'd see Keith again. I was such a coward when we were younger. Too afraid to tell him how I really felt, too concerned with my father's opinion of me to reject the path he set me on. I knew I'd been in love with Keith from the time I was old enough to understand that part of myself. I just never expected the chance to fix the mistakes I made so long ago.

Somehow we've managed to avoid each other all this time, but fate -- and a faulty zip-line -- has thrown us back into each other's lives. I can't waste this chance. Even if Keith doesn't feel the same, I have to tell him I love him. That I've always loved him, and no one else.

Fifteen years is a long time, though, and that amount of betrayal may be something I can never overcome. But I have to try.
