Red Jack groaned and looked up into the night sky. Night. He’d fallen asleep on the beach. He grumbled beneath his breath as he slowly got up, only now realizing that he was naked. He looked around for his clothes, but they were nowhere to be found, so he rubbed his face and walked up to the big glass door on the patio of his beach house. But when he pulled on the handle, the door wouldn’t budge.
“What the--” he mumbled and tugged on the door again, blinking away the slight heaviness in his throbbing head. He remembered that one of the guys came into the clubhouse, said he was going to have a baby, and it ended up with an impromptu party. But that surely had been hours ago.
The light came on in the corridor on the other side of the house, and Jack exhaled in relief when Loki’s tall form came into view. He switched on the main lamp in the living room and casually walked toward Jack, shirtless, and with some kind of wood-and-string necklace dangling from his graceful neck. Red Jack would gladly lick up those collarbones and all the way to Loki’s Adam’s apple.
He smiled, but felt strangely self conscious and covered his dick with his hands. “Hey. What’s up?”
Loki leaned against the wall right next to the door and looked at Jack, wrinkling his nose. “You don’t remember anything, do you?”
Jack bit his lip. He probably fucked up some petty bullshit Loki cared about. “Come on, let me in and we can talk about it.”
Loki smirked but made no movement toward opening the damn door. “You will talk about it. Yeah, right.”
Red Jack groaned. “Come on, don’t be an asshole, I’m butt naked, and it’s getting cold. Unless you want to give me your asshole.” He wiggled his eyebrows. “I’m down with that.”
Loki pulled back his long hair, revealing more of his chest, and slowly popped open the button at the front of his pants. “It was on offer earlier. But you came home late and so drunk that Sam had to roll you into the house.”
Red Jack frowned. “So you kicked me out of my own house?” He took a deep breath and spread his arms to the sides. “You know you want to play with all of this.”
And there it was, that hungry gaze licking up Jack’s cock and balls. “You probably stink... of the sand,” muttered Loki from behind the glass, but he still opened his zipper, as if to taunt Jack.
“You’d need to open the door and smell me…” Jack ran his fingers over the glass at Loki’s groin level.
Loki’s chest rose and fell as he watched Jack through the glass, as if Jack were a wild tiger, just waiting for an opportunity to sink his teeth into that delicious flesh.
“What will I get in return?” asked Loki in the end.
“The moon and the stars, baby” Red Jack said and snorted. “And my dick.”
Loki burst out laughing and pressed a kiss to the glass. “You’re such a romantic.”
“That’s me.” Red Jack kissed him back on the other side. “You wanna check out the goods?” He turned around, bent over, showing off his ass, and then pushed his weight forward to stand on his hands.
A short laugh left his lips as he saw the door open, and Loki stepped outside, upside down. “Okay, that is impressive, considering how drunk you were,” he said, and his warm palm touched Jack’s cool stomach.
There was only so much endurance Red Jack had, so he got down in bit of a wobbly manner, but quickly got to his feet and pushed Loki inside, with his lips already on Loki’s.
“I don’t get drunk. Beers get drunk on me.”
K. A. Merikan is the pen name for Kat and Agnes Merikan, a team of writers, who are taken for sisters with surprising regularity. Kat’s the mean sergeant and survival specialist of the duo, never hesitating to kick Agnes’s ass when she’s slacking off. Her memory works like an easy-access catalogue, which allows her to keep up with both book details and social media. Also works as the emergency GPS. Agnes is the Merikan nitpicker, usually found busy with formatting and research. Her attention tends to be scattered, and despite pushing thirty, she needs to apply makeup to buy alcohol. Self-proclaimed queen of the roads.
They love the weird and wonderful, stepping out of the box, and bending stereotypes both in life and books. When you pick up a Merikan book, there’s one thing you can be sure of – it will be full of surprises.
--- Live fast. Die young. Fuck hard.---
Red Jack. Rude. Crude. Horny ginger mess. In love with… himself.
Loki. Deadbeat. Volatile. Stalker. Terminally ill. Fatally in love.
When it comes to men, Red Jack has three rules. The guy has to be hot, out of town, and not up for repeats. It’s a good way to keep the gay flings far away from the eyes of his brothers in the Coffin Nails Motorcycle Club, and he will make damn sure it stays that way. When a hookup takes an ominous turn, and the sexy stranger turns up at his house, the heat is on. Loki invades his life and just won’t leave, wreaking havoc wherever he follows Jack, but getting rid of him becomes harder with every kiss.
The world crumbles around Loki when he finds out he has cancer. As if his life wasn’t shit enough already. With only a few months left, he decides to live to the fullest and get every last wish on his bucket list fulfilled. One of those is fucking the hot bearded biker he meets the same night he got the bad news. Big, confident, and dangerous, Red Jack is all Loki ever wanted in a man. After all, he deserves one last shot at love. Who cares if Red Jack is a stubborn, closeted asshole? Loki knows what he wants, and he won’t settle for anything less. Even if it kills him.
