It's another Christmas alone in Atlanta, and Alvin is starting to reevaluate his life choices.
Moving back home, his current job, they were meant to be part of a temporary stopping point to deal with some family issues. But now, five years later, he's still here. In the midst of this inner turmoil, Alvin's world is shaken when an unexpected visitor comes to stay at the hotel in which he works. His childhood friend Tim, now known as world-famous R&B singer Tee Mills, is visiting for the holiday. Is this a fated chance to rekindle the first love of his life? Or have their paths diverged so much that they can never reconnect?
Alvin wants to know but isn't sure he's brave enough to find out. Before the night ends, however, he'll have his answer - especially if Tee Mills has anything to say about it.
Special Release Excerpt
“Hey, Ang? You still here?”
Tee Mills emerged from the bedroom, and all the air left Alvin’s lungs.
Tee Mills was wearing nothing but a skin-tight pair of briefs that barely seemed to contain all of him, and a chain around his neck. There was a bauble at the end of the chain, but when Tee Mills saw them there, he grasped it and flung it around so that the bauble fell over his back. His eyes met Alvin’s from across the room and he went silent, their gazes locked.
He was breathtaking in his beauty. As he always had been, thought Alvin. He stood there in his six-foot-plus glory, his former high school track star body morphed into an ode to perfection. His skin was luminous and radiant, glowing with health and the most expensive products one could buy. How many times, Alvin wondered, had he imagined that skin, velvety brown like his, under his fingertips, touched by his lips, pressing against him in a tight embrace? High-paid celebrity trainers and a micro-managed diet had chiseled him into an artist's rendering of manliness. His broad shoulders, tapered waist, thick thighs, and, Alvin cleared his throat as Tee Mills turned to his side to grab a shirt thrown over a nearby chair, his deliciously round ass.
“Ang, I think we’re gonna have to cut the last interview.”
Tee Mills seemed to make a show of studying the shirt.
"Angie left," Alvin replied, his tone flat.
Tee Mills looked at him again. Again, that same moment of eyes locking, but he said nothing. The silence felt awkward and seemed to stretch on.
