Jordan Callahan is disillusioned about dating since he caught yet another boyfriend cheating. He’s tired of giving his heart to men who only want his body. At his five-year high school reunion, he meets up with old flame Rick Ferguson. Tall, dark, and bisexual, Rick has been his dream guy since sophomore year. But Rick is in the closet and has dated a string of women since high school. If he gives in to the temptation of Rick’s kisses, his lost love could be his future—or just another in a string of men to break his heart.
Rick has tried to live up to other people’s expectations. Everyone in his small home town is waiting for the former captain of the football team to settle down with a nice girl. Well, girls aren’t in the cards for him, and he’s done trying. He wants Jordan, his best friend since first grade. But a relationship with Jordan means coming out—disappointing his family and inviting ridicule from friends. His golden boy reputation will be shattered if he follows his heart to the only love he’s ever wanted.
Jordan’s muscles slackened, and cold anticipation formed a lump in his stomach. Rick isn’t really jealous?
But the feral look in Rick’s eyes said he was.
The hand on his shoulder nudged him toward the ballroom. Did Rick want him? Was that why he’d agreed to come stag?
Rick’s fingers idly tapped the small of Jordan’s back as they walked. The whisper of contact was odd and possessive, and it sent Jordan’s blood surging to all the wrong places. He shouldn’t have had that second scotch. He was relaxed and horny, especially with Rick so close, when he needed to keep his wits about him. Rick would never forgive him if he let something slip about their past together in front of their high school friends.
The tapping continued, revving his nerves into high gear. His fly pressed painfully against his flesh. He turned to Rick. “Will you stop touching me?”
Rick’s easy smile fled. “Why?”
He grabbed the collar of Rick’s shirt and said in his ear, “Because, dumbass, you’re making me hard.”
Rick raised his brows and smirked. They moved forward again. The tapping slowed but didn’t stop.

Tempting Jordan is the next installment in the Second Chances series, one I’ve been highly anticipating! It all started with Jordan and Rick hooking up after a weekend at a cabin after high school and before setting off to college. There, Rick seduced Jordan into bed; a dream come true for both of them. Their lives took them in separate directions and now, five years later, they’re at a school reunion and the internal flames are igniting once again. The last installment walked through Cynthia and Trent finally taking a chance and getting together. Cynthia was Rick’s high-school girlfriend but they broke up amicably after graduation. Secretly Cynthia has longed to be with Trent. At this reunion Cynthia and Trent were working out their issues and desires all the while, Rick was lusting after Jordan again.
That lusting works both ways. Neither man has found any satisfaction since that weekend in the cabin. Rick thought he was bisexual, but it’s apparent he’s gay and only has eyes, and desires, for Jordan.
The biggest obstacle is Rick being closeted. Now that he’s accepted he’s been more interested in men, specifically Jordan, he must come to terms with being gay. He fears his life will change. He fears losing business partners, friends and possibly his parents love. The choice to have the same life or Jordan is daunting. Jordan is tired of being the second choice and starts setting limits and ultimatums. Of course everyone’s coming out should be at their own pace and on their terms. All these things Jordan and Rick must navigate over this weekend of the reunion.
Difficult choices, discoveries, faith and letting go all shape the potential for Rick and Jordan’s relationship. Will they rise above or crack under the pressure? Have they waited long enough to finally wrap each other in loving arms and declare their love or will they never find the peace needed to live as they want, together as a couple.
