When he arrived in front of Walters Antiques, he thought of his mom predicting he’d come—she’d have a laugh when she found out she’d been right.

Hunter pulled open the door and went inside. He looked around for Brooks, and when he spotted the man his breath caught. All he could see of Brooks was his perfect bubble butt as he bent over what looked to be a huge trunk of some kind. Hunter stepped closer, then to the side. The top half of Brooks’ body was out of view inside the trunk. Suddenly, Brooks jerked upright and turned his head towards Hunter. Brooks studied him—his green-eyed gaze was impassive, then that smirk Hunter hated curled his lips. Then dimples appeared on each side of Brooks’ mouth.

Brooks turned fully, and involuntarily Hunter’s gaze dropped, taking in Brooks’ usual clothing. His T-shirt was a dark grey, his jacket pale cream and his jeans black. Each item fit his lean frame perfectly. Hunter looked away from temptation and to his face. Brooks was too attractive for Hunter’s own good. Brooks was what one would call classically handsome, with features that melded to make him interesting to look at. Brooks lifted a hand, pushing back his blond hair that was in wild disarray, then moved towards Hunter. Whenever he saw Brooks move, Hunter was reminded of a predator. His movements looked casual, but there was a restrained power, which could at any moment become deadly. From the little Hunter knew about Brooks’ background, he was quite capable of violence. During a previous case, he’d discovered that Brooks was ex-military, retired for about ten years. As for what he had done in the military, all they had been told was that it was classified. It was aggravating not to know more—just as aggravating as the man himself.

It’s not that ‘A’ word. Try attractive. Come on, admit it. You’re attracted to the pain in the ass. Hunter ignored the voice in his head, as he had for months.

No way was he even going there. He might be drawn sexually to Brooks, but he could see just from looking at him that Brooks wasn’t one for anything long-term. At this stage in his life, that was all Hunter was looking for. He’d done the casual sex thing, and it didn’t work for him. He wanted what his parents had had. Brooks might be a temptation, but Hunter wasn’t ruled by his libido. Everything he had seen from being around Brooks confirmed his impressions of the man—Brooks flirted with almost everyone. Thankfully, Hunter had been spared from it. If Brooks had tried, he might have decked him. That was also the problem. Hunter was attracted to Brooks, but equally, he wanted to hit him. Brooks pushed his buttons, and Hunter didn’t like it one bit.

“Detective, to what do I owe this most unexpected visit?”

Brooks’ baritone was smooth, but packed the punch of whisky, straight, taken in one gulp.  

How would he sound with me buried deep within his body? Hunter wondered, as he had so many times.
