Description: Dr. Ray Carmichael is a wealthy African-American doctor and political activist running for office on the platform that the brutality and corruption of the local police force is out of control. Nick Sorenson is a white cop who grew up poor and almost lost his life in gangs and crime before turning his life around by joining the police force. When Ray's brother is beaten by a couple of police officers after a traffic stop, Nick is the Internal Affairs detective put in charge of investigating the incident. Dr. Carmichael's obvious distrust of the police force rubs Nick the wrong way, and the man becomes a pain in his neck. Too bad, because neither of them can deny their attraction to each other. Ray has Nick removed from the case when he decides he'd rather date the man than fight with him. In spite of their differences, they begin an affair and grow closer. Until an explosive incident at a family gathering puts nagging doubts in Nick's head--he's not sure if they can overcome the differences that separate them. When Nick is about to lose everything important to him, will he realize his budding relationship with Ray is worth trying to see the other side?

Ray supposed he ought to ask Nick who would be topping. For some reason, Ray had assumed he would be fucking Nick, but it was entirely possible Nick had the same assumption about him. He pulled the sheet and blanket down to the foot of the bed.
Nick came up behind him and wrapped his arms around Ray's middle. "You smell really good." Nick's lips scorched across Ray's throat, his teeth grazing his pulse.
Ray shivered, tilting his head to the side, pushing back against Nick's lips. "God, I can't wait to get you onto that bed."
Nick's breath hitched and he handed a foil wrapper to Ray. Pre-lubed, Ray noted, though as he turned in Nick's arms he saw the man also had a bottle in his hand.
Ray tossed the items on the bed. He lowered his mouth to Nick's. He quaked with need when the other man's tongue slid inside, hot and wet. Slowly, he maneuvered them until they fell onto the bed, Nick pinned under him.
"Wow," Nick murmured, when Ray allowed him a moment to breathe. "Are you as horny as I am?"
"More." Ray's fingers itched to caress Nick everywhere. His tongue dipped to stroke at Nick's right nipple, then his left. Nick jumped. "Like that, huh?"
Nick swallowed. "Uh-huh"
Ray's hands spanned across Nick's abs, tracing the muscles. "You are fucking gorgeous."
Nick's laugh turned into a moan when Ray continued kissing him. He grabbed Nick's wrists and held them over his head, assaulting him with kisses and nibbles everywhere. He was on fire, more turned on than he'd been in a hell of a long time.
"Want you," he whispered in Nick's ear. He felt the other man shake, watched as goose bumps appeared on his flesh. The contrast of his dark skin next to Nick's pale, flushed skin excited him even more. He'd never paid that much attention to the difference of his skin with his lover's before. But for some reason with Nick it fascinated him.
Nick made a little soft sighing noise, and Ray released Nick's wrists to reach for the foil packet. He tore it open and rolled the condom onto his own hard cock. Nick didn't protest, so Ray decided they were likeminded.
Nick grabbed his neck and brought Ray's lips to his again in a crushing, deep kiss. When they came up for air, he rolled onto his stomach presenting his fabulous ass to Ray.
