“Naked Games” by Roe Horvat

about

Completely naked, Curtis is stumbling through a dark maze at a sex club while three strangers hunt him. Scary? Except he wants to get caught. The hottest game ever! One epic night turns into a weekend, and he keeps coming back for more. George, Jack, and Ethan. Each different, all of them blindingly perfect. He’s just their toy, but he loves it. He’s savoring every minute of the wild ride, scratching off items from his erotic bucket list one by one. There are no promises, no useless romance. Their casual arrangement suits him perfectly. So what’s the niggly, squirmy feeling in his chest when he sees George and Jack share a tender kiss, or when Ethan stares at him with those soulful, blue eyes? Ugh. Better ignore it.
Ethan loves his partners deeply. Their relationship builds on mutual respect and a great deal of desire. He doesn’t feel like he’s making any compromises, yet there’s something Jack and George were never able to give him. Then there’s this boy—face of an angel, sex appeal of a demon, and a fragile heart behind a wall of snark. Jack and George are smitten, too. Except Ethan wants more than a few nights of fun. Curtis stirs cravings in him that not even the hottest sex can soothe. He needs to convince his sweet boy to stay with them.

The war is over. The battle for love has just begun.

As Marines, Cal and Jim depended on each other to survive bloodshed and despair in the Pacific.

Knowing Jim could never return his forbidden feelings, Cal hoped time and an ocean between them would dull the yearning for his best friend.

But when Jim’s wife dies, Cal returns to help. He doesn’t know a thing about apple farming—or children—but he’s determined to be there for Jim, even as the painful torch he carries blazes back to life. Jim is grateful for his friend’s support as he struggles with buried emotions and dark wartime memories. Then Jim begins to see Cal in a new light, and their relationship deepens in ways neither expected. Can they build a life together as a family and find happiness in a world that would condemn them?
