Angela will have a review for Graveyard Shift on Tuesday. Until then, here is a Sexcerpt from the book :)
Wes and Hudson are back in Graveyard Shift, this time trying to figure out why shifters are dying in Toronto from drug overdoses, when drugs shouldn’t affect them like that, and worrying about signs a horde of newbie vampires might be plaguing the city too. Add in the European paranormal police, a threat from Hudson’s past, a runaway shifter, and…yeah, things are getting hairy. In more ways than one.
It might be a cliché, but reconnecting after a life-threatening event is a cliché for a reason. In this scene, Wes and Hudson find more than one type of much-needed release.
Gently—and carefully, since we were in a shower with a slippery tile floor—Hudson guided me until I was pressed up against the back wall. The tiles were cold against my butt, but the shiver that ran through me had nothing to do with the change in temperature.
“This okay?” His eyes were already dilated, a thin ring of glowing yellow.
“Better than okay.”
His lips descended to the crook of my neck and he licked the water off my skin. He nosed my beard and a hum of appreciation resonated over the rush of the water behind us. “I want to suck you off.” I almost didn’t hear him, his voice was so low. “But I need— I have to—”
“Whatever you want.” I leaned my head back against the wall.
His big hand wrapped around both our dicks. Mine had decided that yes indeedy, sex would be awesome, thank you very much. The feel of his rough skin—warmer than I was used to, thanks to the heat of the shower—made me groan.
“God, yeah. Love your sounds.”
He began a steady stroke with a fantastic twist as he reached the crowns—which was enough to pull a whimper from me. “More,” I begged, arching up onto my toes to chase that amazing touch.
He mouthed my neck, not biting yet, but his teeth scraped my skin in time with every stroke. The sensation drove me higher, until I was teetering on the brink, needing that one more thing to tip me over.
“Hudson!” I whined.
His name wasn’t fully past my lips when his fangs pierced my neck.
Stars exploded behind my eyes as I came, and came, and came. He grunted, his muscles stiffening, but as always, there was no evidence of our climax but mine splattered across our abs. Time grew fuzzy, hazy, until he lifted his head and licked the wounds. They’d probably be little more than nasty bruises by the time I managed to haul my wrecked ass out of the shower.
He leaned his forehead against my shoulder, still shuddering a little. “So good.”
“It’s a good thing I’m already dead. Just saying.”
He chuckled and kissed my shoulder.
“Much. Thank you.”
“Good. I think we’ve wasted enough water to—”
“Oh, shit!” He turned around and slapped the lever shut. “Damn, there goes the water bill this month.”
I stared at him, then broke out laughing.
“Perspective. In the past twenty-four hours, we’ve fought an army of vampires, the head of that army and a paranormal police troop.”
“So? Water conservation is important.”
I slid down the wall, still laughing even as Hudson muttered to himself and sought a towel. I caught something about orgasms frying my brain, which made me laugh harder.
Until all of those battles I’d referred to—and what had happened, what I’d done, what we lost—came crashing down on me, and the laughter turned to tears.
Hudson held me, and I didn’t remember much after that.
About the book: Graveyard Shift, Not Dead Yet, #3 by Jenn Burke
Book Description: Shifting Into High Fear
Ghost/god Wes Cooper and his not-life partner, vampire Hudson Rojas, have settled into cohabitation in an upscale part of Toronto. So what if their hoity-toity new neighbors haven’t exactly rolled out the welcome mat for the paranormal pair? Their PI business is booming, and when a suspect they’ve been tailing winds up in the morgue, it’s alongside a rash of other shifters in apparent drug-related fatalities.
Now Wes and Hudson must connect the dots between the shifter deaths and an uptick in brutal vampire attacks across the city. Throw in a surprise visit from Hudson’s niece—who may or may not be on the run from European paranormal police (who may or may not exist)—and guardianship of a teen shifter who might be the key to solving the whole mystery (if only she could recover her memory), and Wes and Hudson have never been busier…or happier.
But when a nightmare from Hudson’s past comes back to haunt him, their weird, little found family is pushed to the brink. Mucking this up would mean Hudson and Wes missing their second chance at happily-forever-afterlife…
