I adore the love my characters exhibit, whether it is with each other or their families. In this little snippet from Breathe Each Other In, Logan is expecting to surprise his boyfriend…only to be surprised in return.
*****
With the high school he was doing his student teaching at being so close to his apartment, he rarely drove to and from so he jogged home, his mind going over the things he had packed the night before to make sure he had everything he needed. Reaching his building, he hit the stairs at a run. Excitement bloomed in his stomach. In just a few hours he would see Christian, they would have all night to be with just each other, and then tomorrow his boyfriend would get a birthday party to remember. Whistling, he reached the top step, already turning toward his apartment when he was jolted out of his thoughts by the man standing at his door.

“What’re you doing here?”

A low chuckle reached his ears even as two strong arms pulled him in for a hug. “Surprise, gorgeous.”

“Fuck,” Logan whispered, hugging him back tightly. “Sorry about that. I was just… my mind was on other things and you surprised me. Let’s go inside.” They opened the door and as soon as the door was shut, Christian pulled him close again, kissing him until thinking was almost an impossibility. What that man could do with his tongue should be illegal.

“Now, that’s a better greeting,” Christian teased. “Sorry to surprise you. I know you said you had some studying to do this weekend but I wanted to see you. I figured with me coming up here you could still study.”

Snorting, Logan shook his head. “Study? Unless it’s your body, baby, nuh-uh.” As he leaned in and inhaled, reveling in Christian’s wonderful scent, he remembered. “Ah, fuck!”

“What?”

“Shit,” Logan said, laughing as he stepped backward. “There’s going to be a house full of people tomorrow waiting to surprise you for your birthday. If you aren’t there, they’ll be the ones surprised.”

Grinning, Christian shook his head. “Actually, the surprise is on you.”

“Huh?” Shaking his head, Logan sat down in his one armchair and pulled Christian onto his lap. Much better.

“I told our mothers after you surprised me last time that I would surprise you next. It was Kimberly who suggested my birthday.”

“Mom suggested—” Logan shook his head as realization dawned. “Devious. That woman is sneaky! I’ve been trading texts with her all week long to make sure things were in order.”

Chuckling, Christian stood up and then straddled Logan’s legs. Ooh, even better. “Well, now, does that mean you don’t have to study all weekend?” he asked, emphasizing the drawl that made Logan go weak in the knees.

“Nope. I planned to stay all weekend if I could, so I finished my assignments that are due last night.”

“Good to know,” Christian murmured, unbuttoning Logan’s shirt. “How much longer till you come home for good, love?”

While the outside world might try to undermine them, Logan and Christian’s relationship just grows stronger. In this, the final part of the All They Ever Needed trilogy, their lives take an unexpected turn.
Christian takes to heart everything he learns from Logan’s father and as he and Logan go forward in their DD relationship, he finds that he is willing to not just take on the mantle of Head of House, but to embrace it. With Logan graduating from college, Christian takes the next logical step and asks his boyfriend to move in.
Even with the stress of student teaching and trying to figure out what to do after graduation, Logan leaps at the chance to live with the man he loves. As the pressure of graduation begins to get to him, the only thing to keep him grounded is the amazing man at his side.
Those closest to them make huge changes in their own lives and when an unexpected job offer lands in Logan’s lap, the two have to make a life altering decision. No matter which way they go, they need to give something up. Play it safe and stay home or accept the job and move away from their families? When it comes to decision time, there is one thing they are not willing to part with. That one thing makes all the difference in the world.
