(Balls to the Wall Series, Book #2)
By Tara Lain
Renowned artist Rodney Mansfield stands five foot six, has pink hair, six earrings, a black belt in karate—and a desperate yearning for firefighter Hunter Fallon. But Rod, the Runtback of Notre Dame, knows he’ll never land the beautiful “straight gay” guy, so Rod musters his altruism and helps his more masculine friend Jerry attract Hunter. As if a broken heart wasn’t enough, Rod saves Hunter from a firehouse homophobe—humiliating Hunter in front of his dad!
Hunter lives a dream life—his father’s dream. While he’d like to teach literature in college, read poetry in the sun, and find a strong guy to top him, he fights fires for his dad. Hunter hates flamboyant guys like Rodney. So why can’t he resist him? Maybe it’s time to admit this is one flame he has no desire to put out.

Rod glanced over to see how his model was doing. Total heart stop and brain malfunction. Perfect. Every line and curve. Every angle. Hunter’s body was so lean that each muscle stood out against his tan skin like a piece of sculpture. The pose twisted his torso just enough to make his narrow waist seem even slimmer against the breadth of his shoulders and his hard, curved pecs. His legs were long and looked carved from marble. Even his feet arched perfectly. Oh God. Rod wanted to suck each toe in homage.
In the middle of all this art, surrounded by light tan skin and at the end of a happy trail of silken dark hair, rested a magnificent c*ck, lying relaxed against Hunter’s right leg. He was a low hanger, a real shower. Long and graceful, framed by loose balls and a soft pubic nest, this was a penis of the gods. Rod wanted to paint it all alone in every possible posture. Yeah, preferably erect. Sh*t, he had to quit staring, or at least pretend the staring was professional and not prurient. Sure, right.
Hunter’s c*ck might be relaxed, but the rest of his body was vibrating with tension. Rod tried not to think how much he would like that to be reversed. Had to put the guy at ease before he had a coronary.
