I groaned but followed him willingly into the bedroom. I felt happier than I’d been in a long time. Happier than when we’d first gotten together. I’d never forgotten that first kiss. It had been a long time coming. I laughed at how hard we had tried to keep our lips off each other, not to mention our hands.
Touching your partner is normal in a volleyball match. A high five. A quick hug. A shoulder bump. You had to keep motivated and in the game, and that contact helped. But it became a different sort of game for Ace and me. Every touch sent zings of electricity through my body and woke my dick up. It was the same for Ace, and by the time that first kiss did actually happen, we knew two things. We had to have each other. And we couldn’t play together. As much as I’d fought it. Ace had been right, and I’d known it all along.
I picked Ace for my life. It had been more important than losing him on the sand. It was worth it.
I took his hand and slid against his tall, lean frame. “Remember those last few games we played together?”
“No, I’m not fighting anymore. Morgan is great. I’m talking about the electricity between us. I’m talking about how when you moved, I reacted. How every touch was like a promise...”
Ace grabbed my chin gently between his fingers. “I love you. I chose you. Always. You’re my forever.”
“Don’t say things like that unless you mean them.”
“I mean it.” He kissed me hard before I could answer him. Before I caught on, he had pushed me down onto the bed. I didn’t argue. “I love you.”
“I love you, too.”
Ace’s kisses trailed down my throat, and he licked inside the collar of my shirt. “This has to come off.” It didn’t take long for both of us to undress.
Our bodies rubbed together as we writhed against each other. I knew every inch of him. Knew what he liked. We’d been together long enough to use that as an advantage, but not long enough to get stale. I didn’t think Ace in my bed would ever grow stale, though.
I loved the way he touched me, rubbing over my shoulders and back.
I found the little divot in his lower back with my fingers.
He leaned up and flicked my nipple with the tip of his tongue.
This was our rhythm. How we played, every point between us.
“I want you,” Ace whispered.

So happy to stop by and answer a few questions today!
#1 What do you do when you’re not writing?
A: I like hanging out in my pool or going kayaking. The summer is my favorite time of year, so water activities are at the top of my favorites list. Of course, I’m a coffee-fiend. I drink way too much, and I have a growing mug collection. I like watching sci-fi movies and TV and reading as well. I read a lot, but not nearly as much as I did before I started publishing.
#2 How did you get started publishing?
A: I started out so many years ago...the first things I published were short speculative fiction. Then a paranormal romance (MF), that’s no longer available. But when I stared reading MM Romance, it was over. I moved into that space and never looked back. I do write a lot of paranormal romance to fill that love of genre fiction, fantasy, sci-fi, etc...I love urban fantasy, things like that, but I do a lot of contemporary stuff as well. The Holeshot series and my latest release, Volley, are sports romance.
#3 Who is your favorite author?
A: I don’t like that question. It’s too difficult. I have so many favorites, and honestly, whoever I’m currently reading normally takes that spot. Can I say myself?
#4 What’s next?
A: I’m currently working on a billionaire dom meets bratty tattoo artist. It’s called I DREW my Soulmate. I’m hoping to have that out in September. Also on the horizon is Book 3 of the Operation Elevate series. Then in October, there is going to be a First Time Shifter anthology that I’ll have one in. I’m also going to have another Susan Stoker world book out, Holden Offshore. That’s in the hands of beta readers now. Then the next Holeshot will be December or January – depending on if I actually do a Christmas story this year or not. So, I’m busy. Super-busy!
