Former model and B-list actor (B meaning really bad) Isaac Seidel is now a NYC firefighter on special assignment in the one-horse town of Serenity, Pa. But all work and no play makes Isaac a dull boy, and when he hooks up with the most explosive one-night stand he’s ever had, it looks like country life might not be so boring after all.
Especially when the guy he thought he’d never see again turns out to be one of the volunteer firefighters he’s expected to train.
Levi Everett is a master at pleasing everyone—except himself. He’s spent his whole life hiding who he is and what he wants. It’s a lot more complicated now that he’s going to be seeing gorgeous Isaac Seidel every day. How is he supposed to pretend he’s straight when he and Isaac can’t keep their hands off each other?
Isaac has made it clear he’s only interested in friends with benefits, so when he returns home to NYC, Levi knows he’s gone forever.
Until he isn’t.
Trust doesn’t come easily to Isaac—he’s been hurt and used before. But Isaac is unable to forget the man he left behind, and in a shocking move, he makes Levi an offer that could change their lives forever. Now it’s up to Levi to put himself first, risking the love of his family, to go after his dreams—dreams that were unimaginable before Isaac but are now within his reach.
Because love is wherever Isaac is, and it’s the only place Levi wants to be.
 
Where You Are is a sweet and steamy, age-gap MM romance featuring two smoking hot firefighters who can’t seem to keep their hands off each other or their clothes on, whenever they’re together. It’s filled with found family, first time love, a swoony happily ever after and plenty of good old country fried chicken.
 
 
 
“I want to talk about why you’re ignoring me.” Without waiting for an invitation, he sat on the couch and stretched out his legs.

Admittedly, Isaac felt bad for Levi, who was pacing, growing more agitated by the moment.

“I’m not ignoring you. We spoke, but I work at Lucky’s. I’m not there to hang out and talk.”

“That’s not what I mean.” Sympathetic to Levi’s obvious distress, Isaac gentled his tone. “Can I assume you’re in the closet? That you haven’t come out to anyone?”

Levi’s face turned bright red. “Well…yeah. That’s part of it,” he mumbled. “You saw those guys. Can you imagine me telling them I’m gay?”

“I don’t know. Can you?”

“No.”

There was no hesitation, and Isaac knew he should get up and leave. He had no idea why he was there in the first place. Then he recalled Levi’s nervous smile when they first met and his wild abandon later that evening in bed, and knew he wasn’t ready to give that up. Not yet.

Having resumed his pacing of the small space, Levi reminded Isaac of a caged predator—all that coiled tension beneath the beautiful, sleek exterior. Without thinking, he left his seat and met Levi in the middle of the room. He took his arm, and Levi froze. Isaac slid his hand up Levi’s biceps and curved it around his nape. A deep shudder ran through Levi.

“It must be very hard to live like this.” Moving closer, he pressed his chest against Levi’s, and Isaac swore he could hear the frantic pounding of Levi’s heart.

“I-I’m used to it,” Levi whispered.

“Maybe so.” Isaac dipped his head and kissed Levi’s lips, his cheeks, and the flutter of his lashes. “But you shouldn’t have to be. You don’t have to be.” His fingers gripped Levi’s shoulders and pulled him nearer.

Spencer Brooks was the most attractive man I’d ever laid eyes on.

After all, What could one night really hurt?

 
The air suddenly felt thick as Spencer’s eyes met mine. My eyes burned as the nervous flutter in my stomach began again. The longer we stared at one another, the more the heat grew within me and the more intense it became. I was glad when a loud ring finally pulled his eyes from mine and he began checking something on his cell phone that sat on the table in front of him.

While he was reading, I couldn’t help but let my eyes roam over his muscular arms and broad, strong chest and shoulders. I was completely lost in thought as to what he must feel like when he cleared his throat and my eyes flashed to his face. I had no idea how long he had been watching me watch him, but the smirk he wore told me it had been long enough. I wanted to die. How embarrassing. I could feel the heat in my cheeks as I met his eyes.

“Here it is!” Dad said, coming back into the kitchen and placing the drill on the counter. He was completely oblivious to the way Spencer looked at me.

I cleared my throat and reached for something in the cupboard so my father couldn’t see my flushed cheeks. As I let out a breath and turned back to them, my father sat back down, grabbed his beer, and took a swig, and then began talking with Spencer again as if I weren’t even in the room.

I slowly faded out of the conversation as I watched Spencer grip the neck of his beer bottle, bring it to his lips, and tip his head back, emptying the bottle’s contents. I couldn’t help but watch the taught muscles in his throat as he swallowed. Then my eyes traveled to his large, muscular hands once again. God he hand nice hands. A pulse of excitement ran through me as I wondered what it would feel like if they were on my body, touching me in places that I’d only ever imagined being touched in. Carly was right, this had to stop. There was no way I could spend my summer in this state, nor be like this while I worked under him, I mean beside him. Spencer placed the bottle on the table and his eyes wandered back over to me, and then he flashed that sexy smirk in my direction.

Title: Corrupted Pleasure

Author: Eva Winners
Genre: Age Gap Mafia Romance
Release Date: June 8, 2022
 
 
 
 
 
★★★★★ Intel Chicky Reads Romance (Kara Merideth) – “I’ve read all of Eva’s mafia books and this one was a bit of a departure from her usual tales, but what a totally fantastic ride!”
 
★★★★★ Karen_Lee_Reads – “Readers get humor, shenanigans, a couple whose hot and steamy relationship keeps readers happy and a truly nice Irish Mob leader.”
 
★★★★★ Jess and the Traveling Chair – “I CANT. GET. ENOUGH. Y’all this book is one that you stay up until 2AM to read because its mysterious, SPICY, and the perfect amount of possessive alpha male.”
 

The first time I saw him, I knew I’d never want another man the way I wanted him.

 

The second time, I drank a bottle of his most expensive cognac, which I’d never be able to afford on my own.

 

And the third time… well, he caught me stealing from him.

 

Stealing from the head of the Irish Mafia wasn’t smart. But then I never claimed to be.

 

Now I owed him a debt… a big one. And it couldn’t be settled with money, or favors.

 

He only wanted one thing…

 

Me. Submitting to his darkest demands. Once the debt is settled he’ll let me go.

 

Except he is forbidden to me. Because if I were smart… I’d figure out another way to repay my best friend’s father.

Spencer Brooks was the most attractive man I’d ever laid eyes on.
He was not only our neighbor and the father to the little girl I babysat for, but he was also my father’s best friend.
All of those reasons combined should have said he was totally off-limits, but my desire for him was too strong.
After all, What could one night really hurt?

I stared out of my bedroom window down into my next-door neighbor’s backyard and watched as he walked behind his mower, cutting his lawn. I looked forward to every Saturday morning, because that was the day that Spencer would appear shirtless and do all his yard work. Spencer and his little girl, Nikki, had moved in almost a year ago now, and from the time I’d laid eyes on him, I’d wanted him. Problem was, he was a good twenty years older, divorced, and a father, and I had only turned twenty a few months ago. Not that any of that mattered, except for the fact that he was also my father’s best friend.

“Still staring at your god?” Carly questioned.

“How did you guess?”

“Well, you were actually in mid-sentence, and you just stopped talking.” Carly giggled. “That was the only logical reason I could come up with. Unless, of course, you were having a stroke.”

I rolled my eyes. “I’m sorry, but how is it even possible that he can look just as sexy in grubby sweats, covered in sweat, as he does every weekday morning when he leaves for the office dressed to the nines in a suit and tie?” I questioned. “I mean, it doesn’t help that the man is beautiful. Thick, dark hair I’d love to run my fingers through, blue eyes anyone with half a pulse could get lost in, 6’2″ and a solid wall of pure muscle that I’d love to lay under. God, how I’d love to lay under him.” I grew quiet envisioning that image. “But in all seriousness, he looks dynamite dressed in a suit, and he looks just as amazing now.”

“God, I know what the man looks like, Ainsley. His picture is plastered on every bus stop and major billboard all over the damn city.” She sighed with irritation. The topic of Spencer Brooks had dominated every conversation we’d had for the past year.

“I think he makes the city look better. You can’t honestly tell me that you don’t agree?”

The phone was silent for a moment, and then I heard a huge sigh. “Is Spencer Brooks all we are going to talk about today?”

“I’m sorry…it’s just…”

“It’s just you’re obsessed with an older man,” Carly bit out. “One who just happens to be the same age as your father, which is just gross. He’s also, in case you’ve forgotten, your soon-to-be boss! Did you forget about that? It’s seriously quite a predicament you’ve gotten yourself into.”
