Heart
Some people might look down on being a porn star, but this job has been my salvation. It’s the only one that didn’t turn me away when learning about my criminal record. After being screwed over by my ex, I vowed to never let another man close, but when my sweet, nerdy friend Mason asks for my help improving his skills in the bedroom, I can’t resist. And then there’s my gorgeous yet grumpy parole officer who has made it his mission to save me. They both seem determined to test my resolve, and it’s getting harder and harder to remind myself why it’s so dangerous to trust.

Mason
When it comes to me, awkward nerd is an understatement. I’d rather spend my nights and weekends gaming and coding than socializing. When I somehow stumble into not only a friends with benefits situation with a freaking porn star, but also land a date with a drool-worthy parole officer, I’m certain I’m in over my head. Can I manage to keep from getting my heart shattered if these two figure out they’re better off together than with a klutzy dork like me in the middle?

Lucky
I’ve always had a weakness for nerds, so when I score a date with uber-cute Mason, I’m over the moon. The only problem is that I can’t seem to get a certain bad boy porn star out of my head…and he’s a freaking client. Dating him is against all the rules, but when I discover that Mason and Heart know each other, I find myself in an unexpected threesome. My predictable life turns to chaos, but in the end, it may just be worth it.

Excerpt:

He grins. “Not a chance. Though the name fits you.” Then his face sobers. “Mason told me you’re off my case now. Is that true?”

“Yeah. I didn’t have a chance to tell you yet, but I requested your case be transferred to a coworker.” I won’t mention to Heart just yet what an ass Patrick is, but to be honest, I don’t feel much loyalty toward him.

“Why?”

“Because as long as I was your PO, I couldn’t hang out with you socially. And I want to.”

“You want to hang out with me socially,” Heart repeats. “Is that some fucked up code for sex that I’m unaware of?”

“No. It means exactly what it says: hanging out with you socially. Getting to know you. Dating, would be another term, I suppose.”

His eyes grow big. “Dude, you don’t wanna date me. You want to fuck me. Big difference.”

READ MORE

I’m one second away from getting angry at his reaction, when I realize that he means it. He’s fully convinced I only want him for sex. And to be fair, I have given him little reason to believe otherwise.

“That’s not true,” Mason says with indignance. “That’s not like Lucky.”

His defense of me warms my heart. “Heart’s got a point,” I admit. “My first attraction to him was sexual. It’s grown into more, but I haven’t done a good job of expressing that. Granted, I couldn’t act on anything until a few days ago, but I haven’t given you much indication that I wanted you for more than sex.” I aim my last words at Heart, who shrugs.

“I don’t care about the sex part. I’m fine with you wanting me… Hell, I’d love to let you fuck me. Just don’t bullshit me about it being more than that.”

My heart sinks. He doesn’t believe me. He doesn’t believe I want more than mere sex. “I’m not lying. It’s not about sex for me. If that was all I wanted, I could score at any gay club.”

Mason cringes at my rather crude assessment, and I mentally shake my head at how badly I’m fucking this up. I’ve got one guy who doesn’t believe I could want him for anything else but sex and another who believes I’d rather have anyone else but him for sex. Talk about a fucked-up situation. How do I prove to both of them that I mean what I say? How do I make Mason believe he’s sexually desirable, for lack of a better term, and Heart that I want him for more than his body?

The idea hits me so fast, I mentally stagger. It’s the perfect solution, but will they go for it? It’s crazy… and yet I believe with all my heart it will be good for all three of us. I don’t know what’s going on between us, but I want a chance to figure it out. For me, but also for Mason and Heart. We deserve this, all three of us.

“I have an idea,” I say. “An idea that will help all three of us navigate whatever this is… whatever we are to each other.”

Heart meets my eyes over Mason’s puppy eyes, which are full of hope. “I’m listening.”

“Heart, you and me, we take sex out of the equation. Until you and I are both convinced what we have is more than sexual attraction, we won’t have sex. We can kiss, but all clothes are staying on. At least when it’s the two of us.”

Heart’s eyes widen, but he keeps listening.

“Mason, Heart and I will do our best to make you believe we like you as much for your personality and who you are as for the undeniable sexual attraction. That means we’ll make sure you know what you do to us every time we see you.”

My words hang in the room as Mason’s mouth drops open a little, and Heart looks like he discovered unicorns are real. “You’re serious,” he finally manages.
