Twice In A Lifetime
By R.M Neill
Sheltered Connections, Book 1
One is suffering through a fog of grief. The other crushing feelings of inadequacy. Fate knew they needed each other.
For the longest time, I believed we get one shot at true love. A single person that sets our soul on fire. I had that with my wife until she died, then I was lost in a dark sea of grief. In need of companionship, I decided to adopt a dog.
What I found at the shelter was so much more. Micha, the volunteer, is insanely cute and ridiculously funny. He awakens feelings within me I never knew existed. Is it possible I may get a second chance at real love?
Love just isn’t in the cards for some people. And I’m among those unfortunate few destined to be alone. I trusted the wrong man with my heart once and had it shattered into a million pieces. I won’t make that mistake twice.
Instead, I pour every ounce of my energy into building my business and trying to convince myself I’m not lonely. But Dominic could be the one to tear down the walls I hide behind. He’s the most handsome man I ever met and unbelievably kind. I know he experienced a horrible loss. Is that what’s behind his attraction to me? Or has the connection between us led to his bisexual awakening?
Twice in a Lifetime is the first book in the Sheltered Connections Series. This book involves themes of hurt/comfort, bisexual awakening, and an age gap. Swoon-worthy moments, laugh-out-loud humor, and scorching chemistry make up this 70k word story. Oh, and don’t forget the cherry flavored icing.
I bounce down the stairs and Dominic follows. It’s surreal having him in my little chunk of home, but when he sees Tux come running and scoops him up without a second thought my heart turns into a pile of goo as he snuggles with my little man.
“Hi there, fella. You must be Tux. Aren’t you handsome? You’ve got pretty eyes just like your daddy.”
The world just stopped spinning or I just started. Either way, when the words cross Dominic’s lips, reality has warped. Two compliments in one night, neither of them provoked. My heart is hammering behind my ribcage, and I fear it might throw itself across the room at any moment. Our eyes meet and neither of us looks away. He continues to scratch Tux under the chin. His voice is gruff. “I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to make things awkward.”
Awkward? The only thing that’s going to make this awkward is if he didn’t mean it. I step closer and pet Tux while he still snuggles into Dominic, and I’ve never been more jealous of a pet. Wait, not true. When he hugged Maggie and told her he couldn’t wait to make her his girl, I was jealous then too. Man, I have more issues than I thought if I’m jealous of animals.
