Sure, it started out as a challenge. That twink was so determined not to date an infamous playboy like myself that there was no way for me to resist proving him wrong. However, I didn’t expect to actually fall in love with him. How can I make him mine? How do I make him believe I really want him and for him to stop pushing me away?
* This story was written as a part of the M/M Romance Group’s “Love Has No Boundaries” 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.
Silver Reese has a three-and-a-half-year-long crush on Knox Thurston aka the God of Ice. Knox is a real playboy, his motto is “love ‘em and leave ‘em”. Though Silver is head over heels with him, he wants to stay on safe ground: he knows Knox can’t be trusted and getting involved with him would result in a serious heartbreak.
So when Knox asks him out, he says no. And when Knox pulls him into a pantry, and kisses him, Silver kicks him on the leg.
But Knox is persistent, and the little challenge to change Silver’s mind about him turns into something exceptional.
I loved the writing, the dialogues were witty and funny, so I’m even willing to overlook the cliché character of the overprotective best friend, Tina.
I wish it was longer with more explicit erotic scenes. Sweet story.
