Port In A Storm is an M/M erotic romance novel released in October 2014 by Loose Id Publishing.
Port In A Storm follows Alex, a recent university graduate who finds his life turned upside down after a chance encounter with a mysterious traveller.
Alex’s world changes forever the day he meets Jake. It should be simple. Jake wants Alex. Alex wants Jake, but for Alex there’s this little thing called life that seems determined to get in the way.
Alex is stuck in a rut. He’s facing a big decision about his future, namely, what to do with it and so far he hasn’t managed to come up with an answer.
Until he meets Jake.
Jake blows through Alex’s world like a hurricane and Alex falls hard and fast for the perpetual traveller with a penchant for secrets and a perfect smile. Jake wants Alex, but life isn’t as simple as that.
Jake never settles in one place for long and already their long-distance relationship is driving a wedge between Alex and his family. With no compromises on offer, Alex’s decision about his future becomes a decision about Jake.
For Alex, the idea of losing Jake doesn’t even bear thinking about, but choosing him looks like it will mean throwing away everything Alex knows, including his relationship with his parents. And so, Alex finds himself with another question to answer.
How much would you be willing to give up, to be happy?
In the staff room, Alex changed into jeans and a tight black jumper before removing his wallet, phone, and car keys from his locker. He tossed his work clothes in their place and prepared to leave, as usual, without saying good-bye to anyone. As he headed for the exit, he started flicking through his phone, checking for messages. There were none. He was just scrolling through the traffic reports for his journey home when he passed through the employees’ entrance and smacked straight into something that felt a lot like a brick wall.
Alex went flying. Someone grabbed him just before he hit the deck. He looked up into those dark brown eyes once more. The brick wall turned out to be his traveler’s chest, and even though Alex was back on his feet, the man’s hands maintained their firm, almost too firm, grip on Alex’s arms.
Alex attempted to speak, but he couldn’t think of anything to say. Up close, with their faces almost touching, Alex was convinced his initial assessment—that this man easily topped the list of most handsome men he had ever seen—had been on the money. His cock, which had been subsiding in disappointment, jumped straight back to attention under the look of pure, unadulterated sex in those eyes.
“Those things are dangerous, you know. Cause loads of accidents when people are too busy living through them and not in the moment.”
“Huh?” Alex glanced down at his phone. “Oh right. Yeah. I’ll, eh…bear that in mind. Thanks.”
“Good. Wouldn’t want any damage to come to that perfect body of yours, would we?”
The man crowded him. Alex didn’t object. Despite not being much taller than Alex, he looked a lot stronger and held himself more confidently. He must have stashed his heavy duffel bag somewhere, and without it, his hands were free. He maintained his grip on Alex’s left arm while raising his other hand to brush the hair from Alex’s eyes.
“Not unless you like a little pain. A little damage.”
It sounded a lot like a question and was delivered with a smirk that came in just the right side of cocky. Alex swallowed hard. When the man pushed their crotches together and walked them backward, Alex thought he knew what his answer would have been. When he felt the wall against his back, Alex was sure of it, and he was more than grateful to be out of the sight of prying eyes.
