Fitting In

Volume 1 of Fitting In

Mason is tending bar when two police offers come to investigate several robberies in the neighborhood of the pub. Jack and Gray are both stunning in Mason's eyes, and their appearance is enough to fuel several fantasies. The cops return several times over the next few weeks, but Mason is too afraid to do any more than stare at them when he thinks they're not looking. Finally Gray and Jack make a move and eventually get Mason back to the house they share, where the sex is even more mind blowing that Mason's fantasies. It isn't just a one night stand, either, but as Mason is drawn in he feels very conflicted. He was involved with a couple once before, and it didn't end well. As much as he craves what Jack and Gray do to him, he also cares too much for them to risk coming between them. More
