TRAPPING DRAKE

by Lee Brazil
coming 
May 4 from Breathless Press

BLURB

Drake Fallon's impulsive decision to stop and help a stranger change a tire leads to intriguing possibilities. What he doesn’t know is that there are two J. Cahils.
After miserable years looking for love in other places, Jesse and Jay Cahil have accepted that for them, illicit passion is the only one. They've built a life, a home together.
A chance encounter on a rainy night brings something Jesse never expected- an attraction for another man. Still, he's committed to the love he has for his twin, Jay, and he pushes Drake Fallon away.
Drake is intrigued by the vulnerable man he met in the downpour. Though Jesse claims to be involved, Drake is certain the relationship can't be fulfilling or Jesse wouldn't have returned his kiss with such passion.
Jay Cahil is devastated when his lover whispers another man's name in his dreams. When Drake calls, how can Jay resist meeting the man who's crept into his twin's dreams?


EXCERPT

Pulling into the drive, he turned to face Jesse, who had one hand on the door handle and an uncertain look on his face. Cautiously, sensing that Jesse wasn't immune to him, Drake gave in to his earlier temptation. He reached out and ran his hand down the side of that gorgeous face. When Jesse leaned into his touch, Drake's pulse sped up and he curled his finger around the back of Jesse's neck, threading his fingers into the still-damp blond locks. Tilting Jesse's head up, he leaned down, staring deep into the blue eyes, looking for any sign that his kiss was unwelcome. Jesse's eyes widened, and he expelled a sweet rush of air that hotly caressed Drake's lips. Drake sighed and brought their mouths together. Pausing, he again gave the skittish Jesse a chance to pull away. When no objection came, he tilted his head and caressed the full lower lip with his own, adoring the soft warmth, reveling in the delicate intimacy.
With a breathy whimper, Jesse's mouth opened slightly and Drake took full advantage. He swept his tongue inside, tracing hungrily over smooth velvety surfaces, teasing and massaging Jesse's timid tongue with his own. The sweet flavor and delicious heat, the residual taste of raspberry and dark chocolate intoxicated him, and he wanted more. He moaned loudly and pulled Jesse closer, pressing his mouth open wider, coaxing a response from the trembling man in his arms.
A sudden flash of bright light from a passing car startled him and Jesse shoved him away, breathing heavily. "Oh my God," he whispered, huge eyes locking on Drake's face. "I can't."
"Jesse? I'm sorry I got carried away. It's just...you're so damn sexy. I know I overstepped. Look. It's late. Can I see you again?"
"No. Not I can't sleep with you. I want to. But I can't. There's someone else."
Drake jerked back as if slapped. "Someone else? And you couldn't call him to help you, I suppose?"
"You assume it's a him?"
Drake snorted in response. He damn well knew the someone else was a him. No straight man wore three-inch heels in the rain, no matter how fucking short he was. Not to mention, he'd likely have been punched square in the jaw at the first touch if Jesse weren't gay.
"I know it's a him. Just like I know you can't be all that in love with him if you can kiss me like that."

  1. Depends on the stranger... Elder person? Yes. Younger person? Probably not. (I'm 51, they're probably more able than I am at hefting tires around). Really cute guys like on the cover of your book? Most definitely! ;-)

  3. As much as I'd say I'd love to stop a stranger and help them it would depend on who. A man probably not, because I wouldn't know if it is a setup or not. I know that sounds terrible but I've watched WAY too much TV. If it were a female or elderly and I could then I would or at least offer them my phone and a place to sit until help comes.
    Just being honest...

    1. lol that's nearly exactly what I was thinking when I read the question.
      My imagination runs away from me all too quickly and experiences in my life haven't helped with fearing the worst outcome.

  4. Well, since I have no clue how to chance a tire, probably not. LOL.

  5. Depends on if my kiddos were in the car with me or not. And the amount of traffic on the road also...

    Then again, my history with tires means it would probably be me on the side of the road...and yes, people have stopped to help me. lol

  6. In my mind I would totally stop to help. In reality, not so much. Not if I didn't know them.

    Looking forward to this story!

  7. I would want to, but I probably wouldn't. I'm small barely 5 foot I wouldn't take the risk unfortunately. I would call for assistance now that I have a cell phone :) The story sounds nice, can't wait.

  9. I'd love to say yes but since I've never changed a tire in my life I'd be no help at all. Looking forward to reading this story.

  10. If I knew how, yes. Mostly in thanks to the gentleman who stopped to help me several years ago.

  11. Congrats on your upcoming release, and it sounds so very, very good!
    Absolutely. When I was still living in eastern Washington I was driving home from my college classes one early summer afternoon when the fires were burning south of Spokane in the early 90's. The smoke was thick drifting across the highway and there was a guy with a book backpack walking and coughing alongside the highway, and I could see he was struggling and pulled right over and picked him up to get him out the of dry smoking air. It was hard enough to drive through the smoke, how could anyone be waling through it? He was a real nice guy who was a fellow student at the SCC campus, and his car was out of gas parked back at the campus. I knew who he was the second he walked up to my truck and looked in the passenger window. I had walked past him on many occasions in the hallways on campus, so I had little fear that he was a complete stranger and I was older than he was by at least 10 years...lol It was months later that we actually ended up in a couple of literature classes together. A very nice guy...*S*
    Thanks for the giveaway as I love your Truth or Dare series!

  12. I have to say yes...even if I could not change it I would at least let them call for help. Thanks for the giveaway and the great books. Marie melisk1966@yahoo.com

  13. No, because I'd be totally useless lol The only time I tried to change one of my own ended badly. I got the car on the jack, took the tire off, and went to the trunk to pull out the spare. While I was there, the car started to slide toward me, and my first instinct was to try to catch it lol The car jammed on the jack, and I had to call someone to get it off and change the tire. Not worth me helping.

    Good luck on your book, sounds great, I'd love to win it. So, does that mean BP takes incest? Good to know for future reference.

  14. I'm embarrassed to say that probably not, mostly because I have no strength, and I am terrible with tools.

  15. I would like to think that I would but it would depend on the circumstances. I'm a terrible judge of character though.

  16. I would stop if the person was older. If its someone young then they probably have a cell phone and can call someone themselves.

    Looking forward to this one!

  17. Yes I would stop to help, even if only to call someone.
    The blurb sounds very interesting. I really enjoyed the Truth or Dare stories. In fact, you have never given me a bad read. I am looking forward to your latest book.

  18. I have stopped to help people but my husband was with me. And, I was very fortunate to have someone stop to help me when I had a flat. But, if it was just me and my kids in the car I probably would just use my phone to call for help. Thanks for the contest. This sounds great!

  20. Hi, yes i would stop if person on own, either to help or check they ok for help. Live on a small island so generally no worries about who they are, what may happen etc.
    Used to do local rallies so had to be able to change a wheel quick in order to stay inside maximum lateness so def able to help!

  22. Hi, Lee. This sounds like a hot story, but in reality for me...it depends, but for one flat tire in a well-travelled location I likely wouldn't stop. I'm small and usually call my insurance company's roadside assistanced to change my own tires because it's easier. In a difficult location, and if the person looked distressed and not capable of helping themselves, I might roll down my window and ask if they needed me to call someone for them. I'm not ending up abducted and raped because someone I don't know has a flat tire!

  23. That sounds so great!!
    And well, in all honesty, I probably wouldn't. The most important fact being that I actually do not drive, never learned never want to, but other than that, What use would I be? I know for a fact that I cannot for shit change a tire. I'm a short girl, the only useful thing I'd be on a rainy day with a flat tire, is to call a tow truck or hold a newspaper over the person trying to change the tire...
    BUT if I did drive and it was a crap ass rainy day, and if I knew what it was like to be stranded somewhere with a stupid flat on any regular day, I would pull over and see if the person was all right and If he/she didn't have tow service number, I would could call. Other than that.... I'd be no use at all and I'd feel bad for aggravating the person more with my uselessness. :/ you know? LOL...


    Thank you for the contest!!

  24. I was browsing on the BP site and almost pre-ordered the book today. I'm new to your writing and this one sounded like fun. As for the tire change - it depends. dilokeith at gmail

  25. Nope. But I'd call roadside assistance for them and hang out until someone came. In my car. Doors locked.
