For today’s #TeaserTuesday here’s a peek of what I’m currently working. I’m self-editing as I get it ready for submission. This is an unedited sneak peek. Also since this is sneak peek it might not make it into final submission of book.

Series: Bonds of Justice – Book 5
“One day your mouth will get you in trouble,” Dominic said between clenched teeth.
“God I hope it does.” Isaac replied reverently.
Dominic rubbed his fingers along the bridge of his nose. “You’re giving me a headache.”
“Want me to rub it and make it better.”
The words were innocent enough but in that tone Isaac used Dominic knew it was anything but. The damn man could read a menu an make it sound like sex. Dominic lowered his hand and glared at Isaac. He pivoted and walked away from the pain in his butt that was Isaac. The sound of Isaac’s unhurried footsteps behind him made him grit his teeth. Dominic knew he was doing what he’d caught him doing so many times before.
“Stop watching my ass.”
“Nope. It’s a lovely specimen. Although it’s a shame your jacket is covering it.” Isaac said.
And Dominic didn’t need to look at him to know he was smirking.
“Get a better look then.” Dominic flipped up his jacket and showed him his ass.
Isaac whistled long and low. “Get naked so I can see better.”
Dominic stopped turned his head and stared at him. Isaac grinned and Dominic could see where Craig got his irreverent behavior.
“What.” Isaac shrugged. “I figured it was worth a shot since you showed me your ass. It’s covered by your pants so I don’t have the whole picture of how it looks.” H stopped before him. “And I’m curious if it is as good as I imagine it to be.”
His tone was low husky with a silken promise of so many things that needed a flat surface. Dominic narrowed his eyes. This was the first time Isaac was so blatant with his desire. He’d seen it in his gaze before and heard it in his passing comments. But this was as good as a declaration. A declaration that he wanted Dominic and Dominic wasn’t sure if he was ready for that.
Liar, you want him too. Hell yeah he did but on his terms. Dominic was not about to give into his baser urges until they came to an agreement of who was in charge—him.
“So much better.” Dominic dropped his voice letting the need coursing through him seep into his tone.
Isaac partially lowered his lids over his compelling gaze. “Don’t make promises unless you plan on doing somehow about it.”
“Ditto. You’ve been playing a game and messing with my head for months.” Dominic crowded him. “I don’t like games.”
Isaac didn’t back up standing his ground. “I don’t play.” The disdain was plain at the thought was in his voice then it went deeper. “I’m very serious, Dominic Rossi.” He started at him then turned and walked away.
Dominic watched him go and couldn’t help but wonder why he all of a sudden felt like prey. Prey that was hunted by a master hunter. He lowered his gaze and appreciated Isaac’s long legged stride and swagger. The damn man looked good and knew it. Isaac paused before the open door and flipped up his jacket. Dominic’s mouth went dry as he saw his ass in his slacks. Yeah he wanted to see Isacc naked. Dominic lifted his head and met Isaac gaze as he looked over his shoulder.
“Returning the favor.” He winked “It looks even more awesome naked.”
“You’re shameless.” Dominic muttered and hell if he wasn’t turned on.
“You have no idea.” Isaac laughed and went through the door.
I’m in so much trouble.
Isaac grinned as he thought of the expression on Dominic’s face. He wad turning out to be much more than he thought. Isaac had never been an ass man but yet couldn’t stop looking at Dominic’s. The man was smart, confident and could match wits with him. It was going to be fun making the detective lose his cool. Isaac had made it his mission to get under his skin.
