Losing love, real love, can break a man. The pain it causes cannot be taken away, but when that love walks back in, the possibilities of a second chance are too tempting to pass up. Brian Lauder lost a love, the love of his life, when Morgan Cherik walked out two years before. He wallowed in self-pity and alcohol until he tried to get past it, moving on to a new man, who came into his life as a rent boy but became much more.
Morgan’s rain drenched skin couldn’t contain the strawberry scent of him, or camouflage his tears of regret. As Nicolas Perez, Pez, steps aside, Brian takes Morgan back, wondering if he can regain all they’d lost.
It wouldn’t be easy for Morgan to earn his place back at his beloved Master’s feet. Brian was angry and hurt, and the sadist in him put Morgan through paces he’d never imagined. Still, there was a great love there between them, if only Brian could forget Pez.
A chance encounter at a club lets him see what Pez has been up to since walking away from Brian, and he comes back to the house, to the couple he’d allowed to get back together with his leaving. Right away, he and Morgan fight. The hatred and jealousy enrages them, but Brian realizes he wants them both and enlists help to make it happen.
Tensions do not abate easily. The two men are both passionately in love with Brian, but when their own desires for one another ignite, they begin to think that the threesome could work and they could be happy.
Morgan goes back to work, modeling kinky gear for Slutae and Pez’s dream also comes true when he is hired as the company’s marketing executive. With a huge launch at Chaps coming, where Pez has a contract with Travis Walton, the club’s owner, for his staff to wear the company’s products exclusively, Morgan is set to be the star of the show. Who thought anything could go wrong?
Tragedy strikes and strikes again. Brian starts to question his own sanity even as he attempts to help the clients at the women’s prison he works for as a psychologist. His boys feel helpless and alone, but a friend from Brian’s past comes to get him back to the old Brian, dominant and confident.
Twists and turns, this threesome is never sure they can work out. Watch as these men attempt to overcome jealousies, turmoil, pain and loss. Friends step in when needed, and their lifestyle of BDSM gets them through times when nothing else can.
“Each couple in the relationship must have a strong love. It’s a triangle. Brain and Morgan, Morgan and Pez and Pez and Brian being the corners; if they all aren’t strong, then the triangle itself isn’t strong. It’ll buckle.”
Morgan sat back, the cold porcelain of the tank shocking him. “I would have. Somehow, I think you’re stroking me.”
Brian was quiet, and then he wasn’t. “Goddamn it, Morgan. Stop projecting your shit onto me. You think you are less ambitious than I am because you found your career early in life and it’s been a satisfying and productive outcome, but now that you’re getting older, you see it coming to an end. Well, guess what, you idiot, all of our careers have expiration dates just as we do! My father is feeling his right now. Get to the gym as soon as Pez gets home, and work on your body. Not for your career, but for your health, because you being healthy and alive is about all I give a shit about. Besides the fact that your fucking career is not only on track, but is thriving, despite the advanced age you think you are. Now, is there anything else you want to whine about?”
Morgan was offended, then confused. Anger circled around but never quite landed. Finally, he smiled and said, “Sir, I’m good. Thank you.”
Purring, Brian said, “Good boy. I love you so much, baby.”
“I love you too, Sir.”
When Pez got home, he was bouncing he was so excited. “Morgan! Are you ready?”
Morgan ran down the stairs with his gym bag and called out, “Been ready for a half an hour! You’re late!”
Pez ran over to him at the bottom of the stairs, and Morgan couldn’t stay annoyed with him when he saw the sparkle in his eyes. “I fucking love this job. I owe you!”
“Good, you can pay me back, starting today.”
Pez stopped his happy wiggle and stared at him suspiciously. “Okay…how?”
“Train me. Be my personal trainer. You look, and yes I hate to admit this, but you look so fucking great naked. I need to look that good, get my confidence up for this shoot and all of those to come with Slutae.”
Pez relaxed and said, “Shit, Morgan, of course. I’d be happy to help. And by the way, the guys you are posing with are amazingly hot!”
Morgan groaned as he headed for the front door. “Not helping, Pez!”
