Happy Wednesday, and thanks again to the lovely Angelica Dawson for organizing the MidWeekTeases!
This week’s tease comes from my new release, the dark erotic gay crime ménage The Audition 🙂

His torso wet from a hot shower, hair drippling, Rico tied a towel around his waist and opened the bathroom door. A human figure waited outside, leaning against the side of a tall window in the white hall.
Rico startled, alarm coursing through him.
But it was only Jaden, who turned to him with a smile. The kid looked good and healthy in the sharp sunlight. He wore khaki shorts and a Rage Against the Machine t-shirt he’d found in Rico’s wardrobe.
Two cups of coffee sat on the windowsill, their steam dancing in the light. Rico relaxed and walked over to him. He picked up a cup and sniffed the lovely scent of rusted coffee beans. “You found out how to use the machine?” he teased.
Jaden gave a wry smile. “I’m not that stupid.”
Stupid enough to do drugs. But that subject needn’t be brought up. The kid had learned his lesson. He’d spent a week in Rico’s bed, shaking, sweating, and puking his guts out. During his worst moments, he’d sworn never to touch that shit again.
Rico had nursed him to the best of his ability. As a major cocaine supplier in SoCal, he was partly responsible for the young man’s condition. He’d overflowed the market with cheap poison for years and thus participated in destroying lives. Seeing one of his victims’ horrid struggles in person, in his own house, had made him vow to stop selling. He’d earned enough to live a hundred times over anyway. But he wanted to do more—he would donate some of his wealth to rehab centers. Payback.
He sipped the hot brew. “How are you feeling?”
“Good.” Jaden’s blue-green gaze dropped to Rico’s wet chest and lingered, noting details, then traveled farther down to his abs and…fuck, the towel.
Rico needed to divert his attention. “What are you going to do? I take it you don’t want to return to your parents’.”
Jaden looked up. “Can I stay here? That way, we can go to the film shootings and be together all the time.” Before Rico had time to answer, he pushed from the window and slid his arms around Rico’s waist, pulling him into a hug.
A hug! Rico hadn’t been hugged since he was a kid, when his sweet Mamá regularly took him on her lap, held him tight, and whispered words of motherly love. So many fucking years ago, he’d forgotten what it felt like.
Sizzling with heat and emotion, he put the coffee cup on the sill and circled the young man’s shoulders, pressing their chests together. Damn, how he relished having another person in his arms, and how he loved the way they breathed at the same time, as if one body.
Ruthless drug lord Ricardo “El Loco” Ferrer launders his black money by investing in movie productions. As a teen, he learned to enjoy blow jobs in jail. Now a man of power, his favorite pastime is checking out new acting talent…and convincing them to “please” the team of producers.
Young wannabe actor Jaden Moore comes to a shady side of town to audition for a movie part. He longs to shine, wants to walk the red carpet with cameras flashing and a crowd cheering. He assures the film director and the investors he’ll do anything to reach the top, but is he willing to comply with their dirty fantasies?
