BLURB

On the flight back home to San Diego, Chance Emerson meets an intriguing older man. They flirt, and Chance hopes for more, but the man never calls. Months later, they meet again at a charity auction. Chance decides this time he isn’t walking away.

Darren Walsh can’t stop thinking about the gorgeous grad student who almost had him joining the mile-high club. When Chance suggests they hook up, Darren says the only thing he can—yes.

From their first moments together, Chance and Darren know there’s more between them than lust, but their differences in age and income make a real relationship challenging. They decide to keep things secret, yet as they learn more about each other, Darren realizes he wants something real and open. To have that, he’ll need to convince Chance that he has a place in Darren’s world, and Darren will have to take some risks of his own.

Jenn Review

3.5 Stars

I enjoyed this story, it definitely started out fun when these two oh so very different guys meet on a plane! I really did like them both right from the start! There’s Chance, a grad student from Texas and Darren, who was born into wealth and there’s 17 years between them!

These two share a great connection right from the start, chemistry on the plane but once they land, it seems like that may be the end. Chance slips Darren his contact information but he doesn’t use it and isn’t until a chance meeting a few months later for these two to finally act on the attraction that is still there. I loved these two together – they are clearly good for each other, especially Darren, even if they are very different. It’s easy to see how quickly they fall for each other too. It wasn’t supposed to happen, it was supposed to be a quiet, private thing, but these two just can’t deny what they have.

It’s not all easy though, Silvia Violet slips some drama in there to test these two! I think the age difference is handled pretty well between Chance and Darren, both men have their insecurities about it, but these two are too good together! Overall, this was a fun, sweet read with light angst and just makes you smile!

EXCERPT

Chance touched Darren’s arm again, and Darren felt an honest-to-God jolt of electricity zip through him. “Thank you for distracting me.”

Their gazes met, and Chance licked his lips, a provocative move that made Darren wonder if he really wanted to say goodbye.

“Are you getting a cab or something?” Darren asked. Was he really going to ask Chance to share a ride with him?

Chance shook his head. “A friend is picking me up.”

“Right. That’s easier, I guess.” Darren hated how disappointed he was.

“But…” Chance pulled something from the outer pocket of his bag. “Here’s my card. Give me a call if you want to play cards again or just talk or…something else.”

Darren took the card. Was it already warm from Chance’s touch, or was that his imagination?

Chance didn’t seem like the type to carry business cards around. He glanced down at it and realized the front was simply an artistic rendering of a DNA double helix. He flipped it over and saw Chance’s number and his email.

When he looked back up, Chance had a wary look on his face. “No pressure or anything if you don’t—”

The plane hit the tarmac then, jolting them. Darren hadn’t realized they were so close to the ground.

“I gotta text my friend,” Chance said, pulling out his phone.

Darren forced himself to focus on arranging a Lyft for himself rather than staring at Chance. By the time he finished, they were pulling up to the gate. Darren tucked Chance’s card into his leather iPad case and then slipped the device in the pocket of his briefcase.

For the first time since Darren had been startled by the young man holding a giant container of cheese balls, an awkward silence fell between them. He considered assuring Chance he’d call just to make him feel better, but he’d be lying.

He’d be tempted to, especially on nights when he was lonely. Going out or using an app to find a hookup often seemed like far too much trouble. But if he saw Chance again, it wouldn’t be the same. In the real world, Darren and this exuberant, young grad student had nothing in common.

Are you sure? You talked to him more easily than with anyone else you’ve encountered in months, maybe years.

Jack, Gray, and Mason have accepted that loves comes in many flavors and settled into a three-way relationship. Things haven’t been easy, and now that Mason has gone back to school and Gray is interested in a detective position, Jack is feeling lonely. His lovers aren’t around very often, and he misses lying around in bed, enjoying the benefits of living with two hot men. But Jack has secrets. He’s uncomfortable every time he puts his uniform on. He’s never recovered from seeing Mason held hostage, and he’s no longer sure he was meant to be a cop.

While stressing over his own future and facing pressure from Gray and Mason to bring their relationship out of the closet, Jack is severely wounded in the line of duty. His recovery, both physical and emotional might be more than their unconventional relationship can bear. Jack is going to need all the courage and support his lovers can give him if he’s going to bring himself back from the dead and create the life he wants to live.

review
3.5 – 4 Stars
I was definitely looking forward to more of Gray, Mason and Jack and I have to say that I really liked getting Jack’s POV this time! He was definitely a favorite of mine while reading Fitting In.
In this book, Gray, Mason and Jack are in an established relationship, all three of them. It’s not always easy and they are still hiding their relationship status out in the world. Things take a turn for the three men though, once Gray is up for a promotion that means they can come out publically, but then Jack is seriously injured in the line of duty. These events certainly put everything in perspective for these guys.
Overall I enjoyed this story quite a bit! I loved that this book seemed to focus some more on the emotional side than the physical side (not there isn’t a lot of naughty-times, it’s there!). I felt like I really got to know Jack and get in touch with his feelings, about Gray and Mason and their future. I loved seeing that side of Jack as well as seeing how he figured things out. I loved seeing him work with the youth as well, and Henry is a loveable guy too!
I listened to the audio book of Sorting Out and definitely enjoyed the narration of this book. Greg Boudreaux does a good job capturing the different characters and portraying the emotions of the story. I am looking forward to see what happens next with this group!
Jack heard the door open as he pulled a pan of hot caramel popcorn from the oven. Perfect timing. Mason was home and hopefully Gray had been able to get most of his paperwork finished, so the three of them could curl up together and continue their third run through the fourteen brilliant episodes of Firefly. Why oh why had it been cancelled and how had he not known about its awesomeness until Mason came into his life?

 

Their schedules had kept them apart for the last few nights and Jack had been looking forward to this all day, the three of them snuggled on the couch, watching TV until they started to doze off like an old married threesome. Who would need to go out with two amazing men at home? He could happily hole up for weeks just cuddling, fucking, and cooking for them.

 

Mason dropped his bag on the table and came up behind him. He kissed Jack’s neck as he grabbed a handful of popcorn that he immediately threw back into the pan, yelling, “Hot!”

 

“Of course it’s hot. It just came out of the oven.” Laughing, Jack grabbed Mason’s hand and kissed his palm. “Is that better?”

 

“No, but this will fix it.” Mason kissed him, sliding his tongue along the seam of Jack’s lips until he opened for his lover, letting him get a taste. Desire rose swiftly, and he clutched at Mason’s hips, pulling him in tight, letting him feel his cock, which was now hard and needy. Maybe Captain Mal would have to wait after all.

 

The sound of Gray clearing his throat brought them up for air. Mason stepped back, grinning at Jack. “That was a delicious hello.” He turned toward Gray, but when Jack saw the expression on their lover’s face, he knew they weren’t getting the same kind of greeting from him. He looked serious and…scared? Jack’s stomach knotted.

 

 

“What is it?”

 

 

“I need to talk to you. I waited until Mason was home, but I… Maybe you should sit down.”

 

 

“Gray, what’s wrong?” Jack asked, the caramel he’d tasted as he coated the popcorn lying heavy in his stomach.

 

 

Mason laid a hand on his arm. “Are you okay? You’re really pale.”

 

 

Jack ignored the question. “Don’t make us wait.”

 

 

“Thornton, the lieutenant from Major Crimes that I told you about—”

 

 

He glanced at Mason. “He’s been encouraging me to take the detective exam. He wants me in his unit.”

 

 

“But—”

 

 

Gray held up a hand. “Yes, it would mean we wouldn’t be partners anymore, but it would also mean we could be out if we wanted to. We’ve been talking about making a change, and you’ve known I was thinking about going for a promotion.”

 

 

“Yeah, but, I…” Nausea tightened Jack’s throat.

 

 

Mason reached for Jack’s hand and squeezed. “This could be good for all of us. Let’s think about it.”

 

 

Jack looked at Mason. He had known this would happen sooner or later. Gray was right about it being for the best, but Jack had continually pushed it to the back of his mind.

 

 

“I just want us to—” he started, but Gray interrupted him.

 

 

“I told him I’d take the exam.” Gray looked at the floor as he spoke.

 

 

“What?” Jack roared, fear replaced by anger that threatened to scorch him. “How dare you do that without talking to us!”

 

 

“I shouldn’t have, but he’d already asked me before, and I’d put him off. He told me I had to let him know today, and you said you’d support whatever I wanted so—”

 

 

“I didn’t mean for you not to even tell me. Couldn’t you have mentioned this when he asked you the first time?”

 

 

“I—” Gray ran a hand over his ruthlessly short hair. “I should have. I’m sorry, but—”

 

 

“But what?” Mason asked after Gray was silent for several seconds. Jack was glad he’d spoken up, because he wasn’t capable of saying anything nice.

 

 

Gray sighed. “I knew Jack would react just like this.”

 

 

Fuck you. “When it was still something to actually discuss instead of something dictated to me, I would have talked to you. Now that you’ve kept it from me and decided to just walk away—”

 

 

“I’m not walking away.”

 

 

Jack snarled at him. “We’re partners, Gray, and now we won’t be.”

 

 

“We’ll still be partners in the way that really counts.”

 

 

Would they? “What about Mason? Didn’t you think maybe he wanted a say in this?”

 

 

Mason glanced at Gray, and suddenly, Jack knew. “You told him, didn’t you? When Thornton first asked you, you fucking told Mason and not me.”

 

 

Gray closed his eyes and took a long, slow breath. “He told me to tell you, told me I shouldn’t wait, but I wanted to think about it. I didn’t want to upset you if I was just going to turn it down.”

 

 

“Newsflash. I’m upset.”

 

 

“Jack—”

 

 

Mason started to interject, but Jack held up his hand. “There’s no point in talking anymore. Gray’s made his decision. Thank you for actually trying to bring me into it.”

 

 

“I made up my mind to take the exam. That doesn’t mean I’ll take the position. That’s why I wanted to talk.”

 

 

Jack shook his head. “You’ve made up your mind. I can tell. If you get the job, you’ll take it.”

 

 

“I want to stop hiding,” Gray said. “But I want this to be a decision we all three make.”

 

 

“No, you just want me and Mason to agree with you,” Jack said, venom in his tone.

 

 

“That’s not true. I…fuck, Jack. I love you.”

 

 

Jack’s anger deflated, leaving him feeling wrung out and hurt. “I can’t imagine being a cop without you.”

 

 

Gray took a step toward Jack. “I’ll still be here.”

 

 

“We’ll all be together.” Mason spoke at almost the same time. He sounded scared, desperate. Fuck Gray for putting Mason in the middle like this, for going to him when they’d sworn they’d keep everything out in the open.

 

 

Like the time you talked to Mason about Gray seeming depressed, and he encouraged you to talk to Gray, but you didn’t. Is that what you mean by out in the open?

 

 

God, Jack hated that sanctimonious voice in his head.

 

 

He held up his hand, knowing he’d cave if Gray touched him. He’d let Gray have his way and forget how angry and hurt he was until it simmered long enough to explode again. “If you really wanted to discuss it, you would have talked with me the minute you started seriously considering taking the exam.”

 

 

“Would you have listened? Really listened?”

 

 

Jack wanted to scream that he would always listen to Gray, always consider what was best for his lover without being selfish. He wanted to stop being scared he couldn’t hold it together as a cop if Gray weren’t by his side, but he couldn’t make the words come.

 

 

Instead, he grabbed the pan of caramel popcorn and flung it across the kitchen, enjoying the ear-splitting clatter as the pan bounced on the tile. Then he stomped to their bedroom and slammed the door.

 

 

Seconds later, he heard the front door bang shut.
