My new book, Beach Balls releases this coming Friday at Amazon and ARe. It's the third book in the Balls to the Wall Series after Volley Balls and Fire Balls but it is a stand-alone book. An enemies to lovers story, Beach Balls is another side of life in Laguna Beach and the area around it. Here's just a tiny nibble to give you a feel for the book:
Adam James is so far in the closet he could find Narnia. But coming out would threaten all he’s built as the lead attorney for WMA Development, and the million dollars he can get when he finishes pushing a big land remediation project through the City Council. Then on an early morning scuba dive, Adam meets a tall, lean rebreather diver named Sky who makes him want to live a different life. But Adam’s dreams are shattered when he walks into the council meeting and finds the fire-breathing environmentalist who’s screwing up his chances of winning is none other than that same beautiful man. Sky Sea Mickeljohn doesn’t compromise, so how could he find himself lusting after a damned developer? And what happens when somebody open’s Adam’s closet door? These two better start telling the truth if they’re ever going to find world peace.
Adam walked up behind him. “Here ya go. As promised.”
Sky sat up and reached for a glass. “Thanks.” He took a sip. “Wow, good. Fancy too.” He lifted the cut crystal glass, clearly admiring it. Yeah, maybe that hadn’t been the best choice for the beach, but Adam had been in a hurry. A big hurry.
He grinned back, sat on the sand beside Sky, and sipped his juice. It really was delicious, with that tart-sweet flavor that only grapefruit had. He nodded toward the spot up the beach where they’d met. “Are you doing underwater research?”
“Yeah. That’s one of my locations.”
“Do you specialize in octopuses or something?”
“Among other things. Until you came along.”
Adam eyed Sky, who was smiling. Sky jerked his head toward the house. “Do you live there? It’s quite a house.”
“No. It’s just a friend’s house. I’m here for a weekend house party.”
Sky looked back toward the sprawling beach “cottage” spread out around its patio and lawn, which verged on the sand. Carly and two of his late-arrival guests were sitting in chairs on the patio eating breakfast. Adam didn’t see Gary, who was probably doing his vacuum cleaner imitation on someone else.
Sky stared back at the ocean and took another drink. “I don’t see any women.”
OK, so why had the guy made that observation? “That’s because there aren’t any.” Sky took two more sips. He seemed to be savoring every mouthful. He glanced toward Adam and then away so fast his eyes seemed to bounce. “You gay?”
Two could play that game. Adam took a slow sip of his juice. Was he going to share his carefully guarded secret with a stranger? Hell, why not? He was James today. He could be gay. “Yep.”
They both drank simultaneously. Apparently Sky was digesting the information with the citrus. Only the waves broke the silence.
. A standoff. So Adam would ask the obvious because, frankly, he was dying to know. “You gay?”
