It seems like only a few days ago that I had Shiloh and Eva over to showcase their new release, Perfect Ride. It's now heating up Amazon's M/M romance charts (I like to live vicariously through other authors), clearing the way for Shiloh's new release, Country Crush. This post is all about her book, but you can find out more about the author in my Saltwater Lover interview.
I'll let Shiloh take it from here.
In Country Crush, Will Conrad is caught between a rock and a hard place. He is country music singer. He makes a living cutting records for a primarily conservative audience and giving concerts to entertain crazed fans, especially women.
Loneliness can turn people desperate. Blake Bonner hasn’t had a real relationship since his leg was paralyzed in a car accident two years ago. Who would want to be topped by a cripple? Having moved on with his life in every way except for the love department Blake finally bites the bullet and agrees to meet with Cowboy66 in Las Vegas.
A disabled team roper and a country star must make the hard decision to risk their jobs and let their love grow. What will the consequences be?
Find out in Country Crush.
Country singer Will Conrad is afraid coming out will tank his career. Being a celebrity makes it difficult to pick up a man and keep things secret. A gay one night stand online dating site is his salvation. While he is performing in Las Vegas he agrees to meet the real cowboy with whom he has been corresponding.
A car accident left championship team roper Blake Bonner with a paralyzed leg and a wounded heart. Now fully recovered, he is ready for a relationship, but will his blind date want to be topped by a cripple and will he treat him like a whole man?
When Blake finds out his date is Will Conrad he can’t believe it. He’s been his country crush since he hit the country music scene. But when the paparazzi catch them together will their burgeoning relationship be able to brave the media storm?
“He is expecting you,” she said, and then disappeared around the corner without another word.
Heart hammering his rib cage, Blake rubbed his sweaty palms on the sides of his jeans. There was nothing to be nervous about. It wasn’t like his national title was on the line—just his pride. The young woman hadn’t said his date was waiting for him, but he could tell by the look in her eyes and her knowing smile he was. Finally he was going to meet the man he’d been emailing and texting and calling for months. His middle squeezed.
Accepting his disability online was one thing, in person it was a totally different matter. There were still days when Blake woke up and cussed out his useless leg. Here goes nothing.
Taking a deep breath, he opened the door wider and found himself face-to-face with Will Conrad.
Blake’s mouth dropped open, but no words came. There had to be some mistake. Maybe everyone with a backstage pass got to meet Mr. Conrad.
The country music singer’s gaze swept over him, and he stuck out his chest, his nipples stiffening under the scrutiny. Blake instantly felt the heat between them. Conrad’s eyes held appreciation, lust, and steamy sensuality with a hint of submissive. Dear God, his celebrity crush was gay.
Conrad’s gaze swept lower and Blake’s cock hardened all the way. Conrad eyed the bulge and licked his lips. After a second, his head snapped up and he met his eyes, offering his hand. “Name’s Will Conrad.” A playful grin spread across his face. “Of course, by the twinge of shock in your eyes I think you knew that.”
Blake gave his hand a firm shake. “You’re Cowboy66?” he choked out.
Conrad walked past him and shut the door. “I saw you sitting in the front row. You looked like just how you described.”
Blake’s cheeks burned. “Complete with crutches,” he muttered.
Conrad laughed. “You look all man to me.”
Blake’s blush spread down his neck. “Thank you, Mr. Conrad.”
“Call me Will.” He pressed his hand against Blake’s chest. “After tonight we’ll know each other intimately.”
A lump formed in Blake’s throat and had difficulty swallowing or finding words.
“Uh, and I’m Blake.”
Will pushed Blake’s hat back farther on his head. Their lips were close and for a moment Blake’s pulse skidded. Was he going to kiss him?
“I get ogled by women all the time,” Will said, “but I seldom get such a heated gaze from a man.”
Will stepped back, breaking contact with him.
Damn the man was a tease. The way his cock throbbed he didn’t need much foreplay to be ready.
“I gravitated to your side of the stage just so I could get a better look at you.”
“Your dark brown eyes roaming my body made me hot all over. I’m glad I was under the stage lights to hide my fever. The way you looked at me, Blake, I really liked it.”
