Beach Balls
(Balls to the Wall Series, #3)
By Tara Lain

Adam James is so far in the closet he could find Narnia. As an attorney for the homophobic WMA Development, he can’t come out without risking the million-dollar paycheck waiting for him once they push their big land development deal through the city council—money that will finally allow Adam to live according to his own terms. Then, on an early morning scuba dive, Adam meets a tall, lean rebreather diver named Sky who makes him want to hug a tree.

Sky Sea Mickeljohn stands for the environment, world peace, and being openly gay. He won’t compromise his principles for anyone—even the damned lying developer lawyer he can’t help lusting after. True, the WMA land development deal could put thousands of people at risk, but Sky still wants to risk his heart. In the fight between freedom and integrity, is there a place for love?

“Ms Lain pens a thoughtful and sensual tale and I look forward to reading more in the series.”

“The character growth they undergo during the story is phenomenal and adds a lot of zing, along with the ‘off the chart’ hotness of their sexual encounters.” ~ Rainbow Book Reviews


He tipped up his chin and leaned in. If Sky didn’t want to, all he had to do was lean back, but he didn’t.
Sweet. Sky’s lips were so soft. Like a girl’s, almost. But that tongue was pure male, pushing hot and hard between Adam’s lips. Sky grabbed Adam’s head with both hands. He almost toppled over backward, but Sky held him and plundered his mouth. Man, his c*ck was throbbing again. On fire. He wanted to climb into the back seat and ride Sky all the way to oblivion.
Sky ripped his mouth away and looked at Adam fiercely. “Crap. I was so nice and satisfied, and now I’m crazy to f*ck you.”
“Don’t know how I’m going to last until Friday, but I guess we gotta. My life’s not my own for a few days.”
“How about the middle of the night?” Adam was only half kidding.
“I can’t even predict my nights until the weekend.”
“I understand. I have a pretty busy week too.” That was an understatement.
“You in business?”
“Lawyer.” His heart was thumping. That’s the most he’d ever told any guy he f*cked.
Sky grinned. “Oh, like the ones at the bottom of the Mariana Trench?”
“Yeah, a good start.”
Sky leaned forward and gave him a quick peck on the lips, then pulled his legs into the car. Adam stood, and Sky closed the door, pushed a button on the dash, and the car hummed to life. Whir. Ping. Jesus, those cars made weird noises.
Sky reached a hand out the window. Adam touched his fingers to Sky’s, and Sky smiled. “See you Friday.”
“I miss you already.” He drove off, the Prius weirdly silent.
Adam could barely catch his breath. Miss you already. Sh*t. That guy was the most dangerous combination of deadly honest and completely irresistible.
Adam was about to risk everything for a guy. That sounded way too much like high school. If he had one ounce of f*cking sense, he’d cancel the date and never see Sky again.
But that feeling in Adam’s chest was not fear. That throbbing in his c*ck seemed unlikely to stop any time soon. Chances of walking away from Sky? Zero.
