Jack The Lad
by C.J. Sneere
About: James attends his sister's wedding reception, where he tries to avoid
the father he hasn't spoken to in six years by ducking outside. Behind a
restaurant, he meets chaos in gaudy plaid pants and platform boots. A
wild boy who goes by the name of Jack. Up against a brick wall, Jack
takes James on a feral ride he'll never forget.
Excerpt: I'd kicked cigarettes three years ago, but I needed an excuse to get
away from Dad. It always escalated into an argument with him, and I
refused to spoil my sister's wedding reception. So when I spotted the
short, portly bastard headed my way, I faked a nic fit then slipped out
the back door of the restaurant.
I sighed as my ass hit the cool
sidewalk. A spring breeze drifted by, and I inhaled deeply of the city
scents it carried. Hot dogs from street vendors, fuel exhaust, and a
potpourri of freshly served food coming from the restaurant. Soaking
this in relaxed me.
Until I looked to my left and saw a gorgeous
blond man walking toward me. His hair was a mess of spikes. He was about
six foot. Dressed in gaudy plaid pants and a t-shirt far too tight. But
I wasn't complaining. Though he wore a leather jacket over top, I could
still make out well defined pecs, a toned stomach. I looked up from
where his tight pants bunched in an impressive bulge and our gazes met.
had doe eyes and a crooked grin. My mouth went dry, and I tried to look
away, but failed on the first try. Normally, the attention of a
handsome male lifted a crappy mood, but not today. Today, I just wanted
solitude. Dealing with my overbearing father was stress enough.
was never much of a punk fan, but something about my unexpected guest
intrigued me. Still, he seemed to spell trouble, so I forced myself to
stare at my shoes instead.
He sat close beside me. I kept
focusing on my shoes, hoping if I ignored him long enough he'd go away.
Instead, he stretched his legs out, propped one black, three-inch
platform on top of the other, and slid a cigarette from a pack tucked in
his jacket pocket.
