Four Days With Jack
When David invited his best friend along on vacation, he never expected them to fall in love…
Spending four days in a tropical paradise with Jack is a dream come true. For years, David lived a lie and denied his attraction to Jack. Now that they're together in an isolated Caribbean resort, he finally sheds his denial and admits what he really wants-to be Jack's lover.
Jack is more than willing to introduce David to the life he has always fantasized about. Their sizzling nighttime encounters confirm David's long-hidden desires.
But what will happen when they leave the resort? Will David sacrifice everything to start a new life with Jack? Or will he go back to his old ways and risk losing the best friend he ever had?
Two Excerpts from Four Days With Jack
David jolted awake. Someone was shaking his leg. He blinked a few times, trying to orient himself. He was sitting, yet it felt like he was moving. After a second, he remembered. The plane. Vacation. Jack.
"You okay? You were talking in your sleep," Jack said.
David shook his head and the dream faded. Jack's left hand rested on his thigh. He made no attempt to move it. The heat from Jack's palm pulsed through his cargo shorts.
"I was dreaming."
Jack chuckled and gestured at his crotch. "Must have been a good one.
He glanced down. His shorts bulged out in front, his erection obvious. Shit! He pulled the cheap airline blanket across his lap. "How long before we land?"
"About a half hour." He relaxed back in the seat. Soon, they would be on a sunny Caribbean island, far away from rainy, gray Philadelphia and everyone they knew. They could do whatever they wanted for the next four days and three nights. He smiled. Four days with Jack. His secret love-his secret shame.
"I'm sorry about Christmas," he blurted out.
Jack's blue eyes locked on to his. "Christmas? That was three months ago. You had to go to dinner at Allison's parents' place. It was no big deal."
"I don't mean dinner." He took a deep breath. Say it. Get it out in the open. "What you wanted…your present." He looked out the window, afraid to face Jack. Confessing this would open the door to everything. "You know, you asked me for that and I…didn't give it to you."
David popped open the champagne and poured them each a glass. "A toast. To us. To our new beginning."
"To us," he said, clinking David's glass and taking a sip of champagne. The bubbles tickled his nose. "This is excellent, nice and sweet."
"Like you." David set his glass on the cart and gathered him into his arms. "I want to prove how much I love you. How much I've always loved you."
Jack closed his eyes as David kissed him. It was gentle, tender, and made his skin tingle. David really did love him, and he was thrilled that he was opening up about it. David kissed him a few more times, then picked up the bowl of strawberries. "Hungry?"
He opened his mouth as David fed him the sweet fruit. His taste buds came alive, and he sucked on David's fingertips as he pulled away.
"My turn," David said. He took a strawberry and ran it along David's lips. David's tongue darted out and licked a droplet of juice off the end of the strawberry. He wrapped his lips around it and sucked it from his fingers.
Jack grinned. "Lovely."
They took turns feeding each other the tangy fruit and washing it down with champagne. After their third glass, his head started to buzz. "I think I'm getting drunk."
"Good," David said, drawing him into his arms for a kiss.
They kissed tenderly at first, then gave in to their passion. He groaned and kissed David deeper, aching and yearning for more. David's hot mouth tasted like strawberries and champagne.
David bent his head and kissed the soft spot on the side of his neck. "Tell me what you like," he said, grinding his erection against him. "Let me know it's right."
"You're doing fine," he replied, yanking David closer. He kissed him hard and plunged his tongue into his mouth. Kissing was fine, but he wanted more.
"Why don't we go to bed?"
"No. Not yet." David stepped back. "Tonight will be different. Tonight I plan on seducing you."
He closed his eyes. "Go right ahead. I'm all yours."

an emotional, yet sexy coming-out story
"I thought that (Kelli) Wilkins did a very good job portraying the confused David and the wary, but hopeful, Jack. David's inner turmoil and fears about outing himself were so heartbreaking. I definitely felt for him. Overall, I believe that FOUR DAYS WITH JACK is a strong romance with very likeable characters. I'm quite glad that I went ahead and read this story.
