New Release – Glad You Came (Geek Kink #4)

It’s release day! The last of the Geek Kink series, Glad You Came, is now available. Because of some changes taking place with the publisher, I don’t have a timeline for when the book will be available at places like Amazon, Barnes & Noble, All Romance eBooks, etc. I apologize for that, but I simply don’t have that information at this time. As soon as it does though, I will post links on the book’s page here on the website.

Glad You Came was a long time coming (ha! *ahem*). Dade, Genevieve and Tony lived in my head for a long time before I was finally able to get to their story. And even though I thought I knew it several years ago, the trio surprised me several times. As happy as I am that I got to give them their story (and close the loop on a few other characters, not to mention the warehouse!), I’m a little sad the story with the gang from Sanctuary is over. But a new set of geeks have taken up residence in my head already and they’re all clamoring to get out.

I realized I normally share my playlist for a book and I hadn’t done that with Glad You Came yet. So I thought I’d share that today. This book, in fact the whole series, is definitely a story about family, learning about yourself and redemption. The playlist for this book certainly reflects those things.

Breaking Inside ~ Shinedown
Break My Fall ~ Breaking Benjamin
Adrenaline ~ Shinedown
Madness In Me ~ Skillet
Edge of Heaven ~ Breathe Carolina
Waiting (Save Your Life) ~ Omnisoul
Bleeding Out ~ Imagine Dragons
Not Strong Enough ~ Apocalyptica feat. Brent Smith
3 ~ Disturbed
A New Way to Bleed ~ Evanescence
Dirty Mind (Bonus Version) ~ Halestorm
Breath ~ Breaking Benjamin
Hands All Over ~ Maroon 5
When The Heartache Ends ~ Rob Thomas
Penance ~ Device
Live to Rise ~ Soundgarden

As always, one song usually stands out among the group. Though each of the trio have their own personal struggles to deal with during the course of the book, Dade’s conflict is clear from the first page. Almost the first paragraph, in fact. Even though he knows he’s not supposed to want them, he goes ahead and does it anyway. Which is excellent for us!

glad-you-came (3)“No one has ever stood up for me like you did. Laid everything out on the line so unapologetically. Like you didn’t give a rat’s ass what anyone in the room thought. About what you had to say. About you.”

“I’m not most people.”

“You certainly aren’t.” Tony stroked the side of Dade’s jaw, the quiet rasp of a day’s growth filling the space between them. “I always thought I’d have to be the one who stood up for Genevieve. Didn’t much care about myself. But it’s nice to know how someone else feels without any guards in place.”

Dade licked his lips. “Just protecting what’s mine.”

“As much as I would have liked to have said those same things, I know enough to accept what happened for what it was. To take what you said at face value.” Dade met Tony halfway, a building heat suppressing the cold night air as their lips touched.

Dade continued his forward momentum until he’d caged Tony against the car. He set his piss-water coffee and Tony’s glasses on the roof, darting his tongue between Tony’s lips as cars zipped past on the interstate. Dade sank into the heat and raw passion pouring from Tony and arched against him. He sensed Tony’s need to be claimed. Hauling Tony into one of the bathroom stalls to sate the need to brand him as his would satisfy them physically. But a quick fuck wasn’t the kind of mark Dade wanted to give Tony at the moment.

Breaking away, Dade kissed Tony’s collarbone, giving him the barest edge of his teeth before dipping his tongue into the hollow of his throat. Tony shivered. “I meant every word. You and Genevieve are my family. I couldn’t care less what anyone else thinks now because I’m not going to lose the best damn thing I’ve ever had.” Dade slid his hand around the back of Tony’s neck. With a lover’s touch, he pressed a soft kiss against Tony’s lips, using the faintest hint of tongue. “I let that happen for too long. And I will fight until there’s nothing left of me for you two.”

A quiet growl rolled from Tony as he tugged on Dade’s waist. Dade inhaled deeply, opening his mouth to take more of Tony in. An overwhelming wave of love pushed through him, the floodgate springing a leak seconds before a rush of emotion overtook him. “I’m at my best when I’m around you. With you and her. The need for your presence in my life isn’t something I can describe. I just know how I feel. How alive I am when you’re near—“

Tony stopped him with a loving kiss. “You don’t have to explain.”
