Title: Sink or Swim
in Don’t Read in the Closet Volume Three anthology
Author: Lissa Kasey and Xara X. Xanakas
Genre: Contemporary / MM Erotica
Beau has always been the center of attention, the first responder, dive master, and all around life-saver. When he gets a job overseas, Abram feels that he has to follow his lover, but he still harbors doubts of his own worthiness.
Those doubts come to a head during the long flight to begin their new lives. How far is Abram willing to go to keep Beau to himself? Sometimes in matters of the heart, you just have to dive in and sink or swim.
This story was written as a part of the M/M Romance Group’s Hot Summer Days event. Group members were asked to write a story prompt inspired by a photo of their choice. Authors of the group selected a photo and prompt that spoke to them and wrote a short story.
Abram and Beau are dating for a while now, but Abram is afraid that Beau would leave him someday for someone better and he has doubts in Beau’s feelings for him. Honestly, I have no idea why, as it is totally obvious that Beau is head over heels for Abram.
Beau is amazing, caring and attentive. I see no reason for Abram to be that insecure and jealous of him.
The episodes from their life told in retrospect were lovely, and overall the story was sweet, maybe too sweet.
Pseudo-conflicted but sweet.
Nice and enough for a novella.
