His Instant Family (Stories of Us #2)
Shy and awkward Teo Wright, a brilliant young author, has met the man of his dreams in much older Michael, a widower, and father of three. The man has fired up his fantasies and refuses to let go. Discovering they are both single sets them on the road to forever.
“I want to wake up to this every morning.”
Dr. Michael Ashworth has been focused on his work for too many years and although now he is one of the best doctors in his field, it has been to the detriment of his family. But when Teo comes into his life, Michael knows the young man is his future. Teo has made him feel alive and whole again. However, Michael’s in-laws are not thrilled to find their ‘straight’ son-in-law, is in fact bisexual.
Dating a man is not the only issue threatening the life he and Teo are building together. Michael’s teenage son is also not a fan of his father having a boyfriend that is so much younger.
A rebellious teenager and bigoted relatives are hurdles Michael and Teo must overcome before they can find their forever, but nothing good ever comes easy… especially when there are kids to consider.
This man looked so sexy, too sexy, and Teo’s breath caught in his throat. He took a small step forward as Michael reached out, stepping right into his body.
“I hope coffee is code for getting to the nearest flat surface as quickly as possible,” Teo whispered breathily to Michael, trying to get even closer to his body.
He wasn’t usually so forward, but Michael had all his inhibitions on pause. Teo was five seconds away from going down on all fours, taking the position and begging Michael to mount him. He wasn’t sure where this was coming from, honestly. He so wasn’t that guy. He never hooked up on a first date. Not that he had an issue with anyone who did. It just wasn’t him, but with Michael, all the rules went out the window. The man had fried all his brain cells and kicked his libido up two hundred notches.
Michael took a step back, breath ragged. “Don’t think I don’t want to take you up on that offer, but that’s not why I wanted you here.”
“I know, Doc. If it was, I wouldn’t be here, and I wouldn’t be offering,” Teo replied. “I know it’s what everyone says, but I don’t do this. Ever… like, not at all. But it feels different with you.”
“I agree. It feels different because it is, but this part isn’t different for me,” Michael replied, a shameful look stealing across his face. “This is what I do. I don’t date… haven’t since my wife died. But I have slept with a few… okay, more than a few people. This isn’t that, and I want to start the right way. Whatever this is, happening here between us… I can honestly say I have never experienced such a depth of feeling before, and I don’t want to screw things up by skipping steps.”
Teo was tempted to ask if he was including his late wife when he said he had never experienced this depth of feeling, But he didn’t. He wasn’t sure if it was because it was not proper to ask or because he was worried he wouldn’t get the answer he hoped for.
“I understand, but like you said, this is different, so we both know that going in. Plus, in case you didn’t know. . . there are a lot of things we can do that wouldn’t be going all the way.” Teo emphasized the “going all the way” with air quotes.
“Oh! Now, do tell?” Michael practically purred.
“Well,” Teo said, moving back against Michael’s body, “we could.” As Michael leaned in to listen to what Teo was about to say, he took advantage and fused their lips together. Fuck. It got better every time. It was like having the perfect first kiss over and over—knowing what to expect but still being surprised.
Teo broke the kiss, breath ragged. “If you don’t want this to happen in your living room, I suggest you show me the way to your bedroom now before things become positively indecent.”
Michael gazed at him with what Teo wanted to describe as an adoring look, but hesitated in case he was seeing things with the haze of lust clouding everything. “Are you sure? I don’t want you to regret this tomorrow.”
“I’m very sure, Doc. I would like to see what those million-dollar hands are capable of.”
Michael looked at him with amusement written all over his face. “Million-dollar hands, huh?”
“I will admit I may have done some internet stalking.” Teo felt his face heat and ducked his head shyly. “What can I say, Doc? I was smitten from our first meeting, even when I thought you were unattainable. Made for some pretty vivid dreams, I might add.”
“Well, now. How about you tell me about these dreams, and I’ll see what I can do about making them a reality,” Michael replied, nipping Teo playfully on his neck. Teo groaned and purred at the same time. Michael couldn’t have been aware, but his neck was one of the most sensitive parts of his body. Teo loved when his partner kissed and nipped and grazed him. If he left marks behind, even better. It was like there was a straight line connecting his neck to his cock.
