This series of blog posts was motivated by a comment from one of the book’s reviewers, Bethany at Rainbow Gold Reviews, who made the comment that she wished the flashback scenes had been from Sam’s POV instead of from Henry’s.
This week’s scene is from the 6th flashback in the book, found at the beginning of Chapter 7:
Sam came awake as Henry’s arm snaked across his body to silence the alarm on Sam’s bedside table. Once the noise was stopped, Henry flopped back on his pillow and moaned.
“Why on earth did you set the alarm for six A.M.?”
Sam turned onto his side and reached across Henry’s chest. He nuzzled Henry’s neck and whispered in his ear, “Maybe I have plans for you. I need to thank you properly for meeting my family last night.”
Henry stilled. He’d been so nervous about meeting Sam’s family. Needlessly, of course. Sam had always known they would accept Henry with open arms, but Henry’s experience with his own family had left him unreasonably worried.
Henry turned his face and captured Sam’s mouth with his own, and his arm encircled Sam. There was nothing subtle about Henry’s hand prodding Sam, encouraging him to slide his body on top of Henry’s. Sam didn’t need much coaxing. He shifted into place and gently rutted.
Henry’s movements were slow and sensual, grinding his hips upward, dragging his fingertips along Sam’s back, before firmly settling his hands on Sam’s cheeks, pulling him in tighter and gradually increasing both pace and intensity until they soared, gasping, in each other’s embrace.
