Gabe Ashby has given up much for love, but harbors no regrets. Moving in to a new home with his lover, Rafe Soto, the men couldn’t be more in love. Until a chance discovery puts a damper on their bliss.
In the middle of the night, Rafe Soto opens a drawer in hopes of waking his lover with pleasure. What he finds instead throws his faith in Gabe off track and threatens the new life they’ve begun to create. It appears that before the two men have their HEA, there’s much more fighting to be done.
Please note: The events is Always a Sinner take place after Angel appears in the Poconos and before the epilogue of Love the Sinner.
The events of this short story take place after Gabe and Angelo (now Rafe) move in their dream house in North Carolina and before the epilogue of Love the Sinner.
It’s about mistakes, forgiveness, and everything between. It highlights two serious arguments between Gabe and Rafe.
“Love isn’t enough, not if you can turn tail and run so quickly. So easily. Our love maybe it’s not what we thought it to be.”
They make mistakes, throw tantrums, and handle problems in an immature way. Especially Gabe. I hated his behavior and how much pain he caused to Rafe. His mistake seems irreparable.
“You made promises to me, they’re now broken. You promised a future, that’s now in doubt. You broke us,” Angel’s voice trembled, “and I don’t know if we can still be fixed, if we can still work.”
Reading about two sweet characters making stupid things and jeopardizing their relationship is not my favorite thing, but it is what it is. They make it up, of course, but it is not easy.
“Nothing and no one, not even you, can stop me from loving the shit outta you.”
All in all, both Gabe and Rafe need to improve their relationship skills, but they are still smokin’ hot together.
