By the time I got to the airport to catch my flight home, the snow had started falling heavily. The news said it was going to be a raging storm. I settled in to wait. Flight after flight had been delayed and then canceled. I sat there in the airport, alone amidst hundreds of travelers. I thought about home, and I missed Martin. The two things were beginning to blend in my head and heart. I sighed and pulled out a sketch pad and stared at it. I was afraid that after everything I’d said, Martin would pull away. I left the pad unused in my lap and dug out my cell. Martin answered before it barely had a chance to ring. “Daltrey! I was about to call you.” “Yeah? I’m snowed in.” “God, that sucks. I could have been there with you, you know?” “Wouldn’t have made it stop snowing.” “Damn, Daltrey! I swear you do not get it.” “What?” “If you don’t get the image of us curled up together under blankets in a hotel while the snowstorm passes, we’re not on the same page. We have a serious issue here.” His tone kept rising. “Don’t be pissed, Martin. I’m stuck at the airport.” He huffed. “Still.” I understood why he was upset. It upset me, too. We weren’t on the same page, but not because I didn’t want to be. Ultimately, I still wanted to be with him. “Martin—”
Lines on the Mirror
Love on the Line Book 1
Martin has always done everything his parents ever asked, never making waves, but never learning how to say no either. Then his new partying neighbors introduce him to a different lifestyle that pushes his limits.
The only thing keeping him grounded is getting back in touch with his first love, Daltrey, who moved across the country when they were still teenagers. Now, he's a successful artist and plays by his own rules. He wants Martin but won't compromise his morals.
When Martin lets his new friends drag him down until he hits bottom, can he ever find his way back to Daltrey and take control of his life?

I woke up late and rolled over, throwing my pillow on the floor. I didn't have a headache, but my brain still felt foggy. Nothing a good cup of coffee couldn't cure. I staggered into my kitchen to start up my pot, thankful that I had milk and sugar this time. Running my fingers through my hair, I thought about the party and Alec kissing me. It had been nice. Alec made me feel wanted. Wendy had too. She had danced with me, even after Alec had put his arm around my shoulder and kept it there. I liked them and should have...should have what? Shaking my head, I poured my coffee, adding the coveted milk and sugar, and sipped it, walking back into the dining room and sitting at the table. I opened my laptop, and Daltrey's profile picture popped up on the screen, right where I'd left it.
Daltrey. His number was still in the pocket of my slept-in jeans. He had been everything to me. There wasn't really a decision to be made. I needed to rule my own life and do the things I wanted to do and to hell with anyone else. I picked up my cell and dialed the number. A female voice answered on the third ring. "Daltrey Boxbaum's office. How can I help you?" Girlfriend? No way. Daltrey was gay like me. Wasn't he? "Uh... Yes. I'd like to speak with Daltrey." My voice shook with fear. "Sorry, he's unavailable. Can I help you?" she sang back at me lyrically. "No, uh, it's personal." What was I going to say? I should have taken more time to think things out. "I'm Jenny Heathers, his personal assistant. I may be able to help." Her voice sounded a little flatter this time, frustrated. I let out a long breath that I hadn't realized I'd been holding. "Can you give him a message? Tell him I called?" "Sure. Name?" "Martin Hannan. H-a-n-n-a-n, Hannan." I spelled my name, maybe out of habit. Then gave her my cell number. "Okay, Martin. I'll tell him. Have a great day." Well, at least I didn't think she was his girlfriend. Maybe.
