.Yeah.Sign him up.But as long as he’s stuck here, he might as well make the best of it, so he discreetly checks out the local gay scene.Shane nearly drops his drink when the gorgeous, cocky-looking guy strolls into Palace Habu.He buys him a drink, and before long, they’re making out in a booth.Eric is a straight-to-the-point kind of guy and doesn’t want to play games.Since Eric’s idea of not playing games is getting the hell out of there and going back to one of their apartments, Shane is more than happy to go along with it.What starts as a scorching-hot one-night stand leaves both of them wanting more…until Eric finds out Shane doesn’t just outrank him, he’s an officer.DADT may be repealed, but an officer getting involved with an enlisted man falls under conduct unbecoming.Still, they can’t resist their mutual desire.There’s no reason anyone has to find out.But secrets have a way of outing themselves.Warning: Contains two military boys who keep forgetting they’re not supposed to be together.Probably because they never have their uniforms on for any length of time…Enjoy the following excerpt for Conduct Unbecoming:I couldn’t say if it was Shane’s breath warming my skin, his hand over my erection or the blatant acknowledgment this night wasn’t ending until we fucked, but as soon as he suggested leaving, I damn near came.The hot guys were never aggressive enough for my taste, but Shane was both sexy and brazen.And for tonight? Mine.I kissed him harder.He gripped my hair tighter and pulled me closer.This wasn’t like me.Not even close.I could be almost businesslike in my pursuit of a one-night stand.Buy a drink, exchange some small talk, flirt enough to test the water, then get the fuck out of there.That all went to hell right about the time I found out what Shane’s kiss tasted like, and I couldn’t let him go even while my mind tried to tell me the only way I’d get him naked was if I pried myself off him long enough to get the fuck out of here.Just…just one more kiss.One more minute.Maybe two.It must have been at least ten minutes before we finally pulled ourselves apart enough to make an effort to leave the club.Maybe longer than that.The ice had melted in my neglected drink, but for all I knew, that was just from being in such close proximity to the two of us.Panting just as much as I was, he asked, “Ready to get out of here?”“Definitely.”We stayed at the booth for a couple more minutes, catching our breath and calming down so we could walk out of here without being too obvious about where we were going or why.My drink was appallingly watered down, thanks to the melted ice, but I didn’t care.At least it was cool.Sort of.We’d already paid our tabs, so we shouldered our way through the crowd and the fog to the exit.We stepped out of the club into the hallway that would take us to the stairwell.Before we reached the stairs, Shane stopped and pulled out his phone.“I’ll get us a cab,” he said and speed-dialed a number that presumably connected to a taxi company.He spoke to the person on the other end in impressively fluent Japanese, and a moment later hung up and slid his phone into his back pocket.“Ready?”“Very.”We started down the stairs, but another thought crossed my mind: if we got into a cab on Gate Two Street, someone might see us.It was way too visible out there.“Wait.” I touched his arm.He stopped and looked back at me, eyebrows up.I gestured down the stairs past us.“We, um… Isn’t Gate Two Street a little out in the open for us to leave together?”He smiled.“Don’t worry about it.We’re not going out that way.”I hesitated.“Which way are we going?”“There are tons of back roads and alleys through here.No one will see us.” He put a hand on the railing and pushed himself up to kiss me lightly.“Trust me.I’ve done this before, and I don’t want to be seen any more than you do.”After another moment’s hesitation, I nodded.“All right, let’s go.”At the bottom of the stairwell, we stepped out into the muggy evening air.Instead of turning right to go back to Gate Two Street, we went left.The alley narrowed and zigzagged between oddly shaped buildings.“I guess before we get in the cab,” he said as we walked, his voice low even though the alley was pretty much a ghost town.“We should figure out where we’re going.”I glanced at him in the low light.“Well, your place or mine?”“I’m only a few clicks from here,” he said.“Maybe ten or fifteen minutes by cab.”“I live out by Awase and White Beach,” I said.“Which is…” I hesitated.“Um, well, I guess you’d know better than I would.I’m still learning the area, but, twenty or thirty minutes, maybe?”He smiled.“My place, then.If that’s all right with you?”“Fine by me.”My heart beat faster.We both walked a little faster.Christ, we couldn’t get to his place fast enough.Some of the shadowy corners in this alley were starting to look really tempting, and to hell with the consequences if someone caught us.Tempting.Very tempting.As we walked, I struggled to keep my feet under me and not steal too many glances at him.I’d hoped to find someone for a night, but he was more than I’d bargained for.Thank God I’d had the bar to casually lean on earlier when the bartender had pointed out the guy who’d bought my drink, because Shane was fucking gorgeous.His hard, angular features made my mouth water, the cockiness in his posture screamed the kind of confident boldness that melted me in bed, and his piercing green eyes weakened my knees.Good thing he’d bought me a drink, because my mouth went dry the instant I looked his direction.So I’d taken a drink just to moisten my tongue and started toward him.Then, of course, another jackass had stepped in between us.The room was just crowded enough, I couldn’t body-swerve him as easily as I would have liked, and he was insistent as all hell in spite of my polite attempts to exit the conversation [ Pobierz całość w formacie PDF ]
