Blurb(s):Love is a dangerous emotion that EMT Jared won’t risk. But it looks as though a sweet and sexy National Guardsman is about to make him wish for that—and much more.
EMT Jared Li loves his job, his friends and clubbing. There’s nothing like a night of fun getting glammed up, throwing on some heels and shaking his ass to the latest Britney tune. Life is all about having a good time with as many hot guys as possible.
Dan Harrison has been in the National Guard for about six months and out for not much longer than that. At twenty-two, he’s somewhat innocent, a little shy and not interested in meaningless hook-ups. One night at a karaoke bar changes everything for him when his fellow Guardsman Joseph introduces him to his friend Jared. Dan’s never met anyone like the luscious twink who’s filled with so much life and laughter.
A night of passion shakes them to their very cores. Jared really likes Dan, but doesn’t want to get caught up in any type of exclusive thing. Dan wishes there could be more between them, but is willing just to be friends in order to remain near the androgynous stunner.
Hanging out strictly as friends proves to be almost impossible for them both. Not only does Jared continuously lust after the muscular soldier, but he’s also falling for the caring and compassionate man. Dan’s every sex fantasy stars Jared in one of his daring club outfits, but his heart is what really matters and it’s already been lost to Jared.
A traumatic event breaks down the barriers between them and gives them the chance to be together the way they both want. But after Dan is called up by the Guard to assist at a natural disaster, the same bravery that Jared admires in Dan might be the final thing that separates them forever.
Dangerous Wish Fact: Fact #4 - EMT Jared Li loves karaoke, but can’t get the boring host to add Britney Spears’ Work Bitch on the system.
“Sam, I swear to all that is holy, don’t you ever get shot again. I thought I was going to faint.”
Sam smiled at him feebly, the painkillers the hospital had given him likely making him a bit groggy.
“It wasn’t exactly on my list of things to do yesterday. Plus, nothing in the field could ever make you faint. That’s something I can always count on.”
“Yeah, well, it’s a whole helluva lot different when it’s someone you care about. Which reminds me, ahem… When were you planning on sharing with me that you and Laura were having the romance of the century, hmmm?”
Jared had waited for almost an hour to give Sam and Laura some time alone. It was much more than obvious the two were an item.
“Don’t get all butt hurt, Jared. We didn’t want to start announcing it everywhere until we were sure we were in it for the long haul.”
Jared’s gut clenched unexpectedly. He frowned, not sure why Dan’s smile and the way he’d looked at him when they’d made love the night before would suddenly pop into his mind.
He shook his head, trying to avoid getting cranky. “So I guess this whole thing outed you guys?”
Sam gave a weak chuckle. “Yeah, I guess you could say that.”
Jared sighed in frustration. “And are we excited or what?”
A look passed over Sam’s face that reminded Jared of pure contentment. “Yeah. We are.”
Jared felt exposed, like someone had called ‘shenanigans’ on him. He decided he was cranky after all. One good fuck and a moony-eyed partner in love didn’t mean it was time for him to take a trip to the sentimental fairy.
I hardly even know the guy. And I don’t want to get all tied down into a situation anyway.
He was so distracted by his own internal arguing that he didn’t notice Sam was asking him something, until his partner poked at him with his finger.
“You could at least pay attention to me when you come and visit. I know I’m not the most fascinating thing around, but man, you were nowhere near here just then.”
Jared winced. “Sorry. I’m a little tired, too much drinking and dancing last night.”
Among other things.
“For the most part.” He cleared his throat a bit too loudly.
Sam raised his eyebrows. “Oh really? Now things are getting interesting. Who is this guy?”
“No one. Wait, that came out wrong. He’s someone, but I mean, we’re not… It’s nothing like that.”
“Nothing like what?”
Sam’s tone was teasing the way it normally was when they baited each other, but Jared wasn’t taking it the way he normally did. He was irritated. He didn’t want anyone to talk about Dan as if he were some casual hook-up that didn’t mean anything.

When not indulging in her obsession for books, she loves the outdoors, film and music. The Pacific Northwest is the ideal spot to enjoy both hiking and beachcombing. Once upon a time she was the singer in an indie rock band that toured the West Coast and charted on U.S. college radio. She now resides on the northern coast of Oregon, where the constant rain and fog remind her of visits to family in England and Scotland when she was a child.
