(Moonlit Skies Book Two)
Reed and Taz are still adjusting to their new lives together when a medical emergency sends them flying down to Florida on short notice. Not quite the way Reed pictured introducing Taz to his family. Reed’s sister, Rene, welcomes the outgoing Taz with open arms, and the kittenish alien charms Reed’s parents.
But someone isn’t quite so enamored of Reed’s boyfriend—his homophobic older brother Jacob seems determined to be as unpleasant as possible, and he’s making their visit very uncomfortable. The sudden appearance of Reed’s controlling ex releases a flood of insecurity and bad memories.
Reed begins to doubt himself, and his ability to love and be loved in return. When strange items begin appearing as if out of nowhere, he wonders if he’s being stalked, or is he just paranoid? What can Taz do to prove to Reed that he’s more than enough man for this alien?
Reed had Taz pressed against the door of their apartment, kissing him for all he was worth, when his cell went off. He recognized the little jangle that blared out of his phone as his mom’s ring tone. Talk about being cockblocked in a major way.
“Need to answer that,” Reed panted into Taz’s mouth.
“Okay.” Taz rubbed his body against Reed’s, clutching at him.
“Shit, babe.” Reed grabbed Taz’s hands. He barely managed to stop Taz from shredding one of his better silk shirts. Those claws of his boyfriend’s were something else.
The phone stopped ringing. Reed shrugged. Some things were more important than a phone conversation, right? Just as he resumed his exploration of Taz, the same damn song rang out again.
“Fuck!” Reed squirmed as he dug his cell out of his pants. “Just hold that thought, babe. This won’t take long.”
“I need,” Taz whimpered.
“God, Taz, I know. Five minutes, tops. Promise. Let’s sit down. Maybe that’ll help.”
He decided this was going to be the fastest conversation in recorded history. Reed answered the phone with high hopes, but slumped into a chair as he heard his mother launch into the same old same old. Did he say five minutes? What was he thinking?
“Mom, you know I miss you and Dad too.” Reed switched his cell phone from one ear to the other, pushing back strands of his dirty blond hair as he did. He stretched out one long leg before him, wincing.
“What’s wrong?” Taz flopped at his feet, gazing up in consternation.
Reed sighed, trying to calm his emotions. He’d never known a day could last so fucking long. Okay, part of that was his fault. Around lunchtime, he’d gotten the bright idea of plugging Taz with a remote controlled butt plug. Just a little bit of foreplay that would get them both in the mood for a fun night. A quick trip to the bathroom and the deed was done.
Little did he know what he’d just unleashed.
To say Taz had been hyped up all day was like saying it was mildly cold in the Arctic Circle. Reed’s normally exuberant boyfriend had been flying high ever since, which meant he’d had his hands full of excited alien.
