Excerpt: Jeremiah by Jayce Ellis

Hello, friends! Today I have the pleasure of sharing an exclusive excerpt from Jayce Ellis’s recently released book, Jeremiah, through A Novel Take PR’s blog tour.

Jeremiah CoverJeremiah Stewart’s sexuality is no one’s business. Not that he’s hiding it. When—if—he finds the right one, he’ll absolutely introduce him to Mom. But a late-night brush with a sexy stranger in too much lip gloss has him rethinking nearly everything…

To Collin Galloway, direction is a four-letter word. Sure, he hates his job, he hates living with his parents and he really hates watching everyone move on without him. But he doesn’t know what he wants to do, long-term, and he won’t figure it out by thirsting over Jeremiah, the superhot, superintense paramedic who is suddenly everywhere Collin looks.

When Jeremiah’s faced with losing all he’s worked so hard to build, he reluctantly accepts Collin’s help. They’re both determined to stay professional…which works about as well as either would imagine. But Collin only does closets with clothes, and Jeremiah has to decide if he’s finally found the one worth bringing home to Mom. (Goodreads) Goodreads

Without further ado, here is the excerpt of Jayce Ellis’s Jeremiah

The screen door opened and a rumpled Collin stepped out in boxer briefs and nothing else. Thank God for DC weather, because even though it was four in the morning, it was still in the sixties.

“You okay? I woke up and you were gone.” Collin stood by the door, like he was unsure of his welcome.

I reached out to him and his face relaxed. He sat next to me, and I dragged his chair closer. His presence was comforting in a way I couldn’t describe.

“My boss called and I didn’t want to wake you. Told me I didn’t need to come in today. So I guess I’m officially unemployed. Resigned. Whatever.” I tried to sound lighthearted about it, but I’m pretty sure I missed the mark.

Collin rolled his lips in. “So now what?”

I inhaled, letting the air fill my chest, before exhaling slowly and forcing my shoulders down from their hunched-up position. “Now I keep looking for jobs and—” I closed my eyes quick and just said it. “I think I take that vacation my friends have been on my ass about.”

“Vacation? Where?”

“No clue.” I laughed. “I haven’t been on a real vacation for years. I don’t even know what’s out there. If I had a job lined up I’d do Jamaica, but that’s not about to happen.”

“So where then?”

I shrugged. “Hell, I might stay here and just chill.” That’d definitely be the easiest option.

Collin shook his head rapidly. “If you stay here, you have to do a staycation or something. You can’t just stay here.”

I raised a brow. “I can’t, huh?”

“Nope. You have to get an Airbnb or a hotel or something and make touristy plans and relax.” He nodded as though this was a given.

I sat back and looked him up and down in that way that caused a blush to spread over him. “You offering to come with? I could use the company.”
