I am liking the dynamics of the characters and the little bits of levity...makes the story that more real to me...Another wonderful read from an A+ author."--Erotic Horizon, Blogspot.com
"4 STARS!...an achingly heartfelt story. Scott and Preston struggle to deal with their relationship. Their love for each other is strong, but problems arise when Scott can't accept Preston's fears of taking their relationship public...Preston is slightly aggressive in bed and Scott is charmingly genuine. UNTIL THE END OF TIME is a sensual and tender romance."--Nikki, Rainbow Reviews
"5 ANGELS!...the much awaited sequel to AT LONG LAST...I definitely couldn't wait to find out how Scotty and Preston were getting along in their relationship. UNTIL THE END OF TIME is absolutely as good as the first one in the set...The conflict starts at the beginning and seems to roll the plot and characters where it wants them to go, all the way until the end...like visiting old friends!"--April, Fallen Angel Reviews
Preston Reynolds pulled a suitcase out of his walk-in closet and flung it on the bed.
"Do we need to bring suits?" Scott asked, his hands full of shampoo and conditioner bottles. He'd just come out of the bathroom.
"Yeah, probably." He went back into the closet and grabbed a garment bag. "We can fit both of our suits in here."
Scott set the shampoo and conditioner on the nightstand and went into the closet.
Preston didn't like Scott's quiet mood. The blond man was usually much more animated than he was tonight. He didn't think it was because of the heat. Not any longer.
Damn, he hated this insecure feeling. He'd never loved anyone like he loved Scott, but he was in constant fear of wrecking things between them. Saying or doing the wrong thing. Maybe it was unfair, but he couldn't help feeling like Scott judged his every action and found it lacking.
Scott came back out of the closet with his suitcase and a navy suit He laid the suit on the garment bag. "I should call my mom."
Preston nodded and went into the bathroom for the lube. They'd both been tested so they didn't bother with condoms anymore. He reached under the sink and wondered, really, if they would need it for the trip. He always wanted to be with Scott, but a trip to Marilyn's wedding with both his kids and parents there wasn't exactly a romantic weekend getaway.
"Hello, may I speak to Mom, please?"
Preston winced at the edge in Scott's voice. Obviously Scott's father had answered the phone. Scott still hadn't forgiven the man for the way he acted just as he and Preston were getting together. He'd said he would eventually, but Preston wasn't sure his lover would ever have anything but a tense, awkward relationship with his father.
"I'd prefer to speak with her," Scott said from the other room. "When will she be back?" A heavy sigh. "Fine. Can you please tell her I'm going out of town for a few days and I'll call her when I get back on Sunday?"
And therein was the biggest reason Preston didn't want to tell his own parents about being gay and living with Scott. He feared their reaction. Sure, maybe he was a damn coward. But he'd grown up with loving parents. He had a great relationship with his dad and it would just about kill him if it became like Scott's relationship with his dad.
In his head, Preston knew Scott and Kenneth Trask had never had the closeness he'd had with his dad, so he shouldn't judge his own situation by their strained relationship. But his heart didn't want to listen.
In his family no one had ever been gay or different in anyway. They hadn't been happy when he and Marilyn divorced. No one in his family ended their marriage. He couldn't even begin to fathom how they would react to him being gay and in love with another man. One thing he did know was that if he had to choose between his parents and Scott, he'd choose Scott. That didn't mean the choice would be easy.
