Dare to Hope
an All Cocks Story book 4
Virtual book tour
Tristan is the second oldest of the Brennan brothers and the odd man out. Most of the Brennan men have careers in law enforcement, but as a psychiatrist, Tristan chooses to help people in a different way. Quiet and restrained, he is content to hover in the background of his more gregarious brothers. Then he meets two men, each broken and damaged from losses beyond their control.
Gabriel Simenson is mourning his lover’s death. The random act of violence that took Gio’s life has left everyone at All Cocks reeling. The only thing keeping Gabe from drowning in misery is the friendship he’s forged with Micah, the newest model at All Cocks. He continues to struggle, and at the urging of his All Cocks family Gabe agrees to counseling with Tristan under one condition: Micah must go with him.
Micah Solo can relate to unbearable loss, having lost his leg and so much more in Iraq. The past two years he has been alone, adrift and vulnerable — the memories of war haunting his dreams, spilling over into his daily life. At All Cocks, Micah has found the acceptance he craves and the family he lost, but still he yearns for happiness and peace within.
The friendship between the three is instant, the mutual attraction evident. They circle each other, wanting more, yet unsure if it is truly possible. Is life the mundane reality they’ve each come to accept for themselves or do they dare to hope?
The All Cocks Stories is a series set within the world of online gay porn.
*Warning* Micah’s PTSD is told in detail, including flashbacks to his time in Iraq.
Gabe sat on the small couch in the family room with Tristan across from him in Victor’s large black leather recliner. He took a few minutes to really look at Tristan while his attention was on the folder and stack of papers in his lap. Black hair, blue eyes and an ever present five o’clock shadow were the frame for Tristan’s handsome and expressive face. When he smiled his eyes lit up and the little laugh lines around his mouth and eyes crinkled. He carried the blend of Italian and Irish heritage in his features: fierce and commanding when he was angry or frustrated, light and beautiful when he was happy or amused. And those hands — Tristan had large hands with long, nimble fingers. Gabe wondered briefly how it would feel to walk into a room with Tristan guiding him, his hand resting in the middle of his back, laying claim with just a touch.
When Gio died, Gabe didn’t think he would ever look at another man again, much less be drawn to one. Now he was in the uncomfortable position of being drawn to two: Tristan and Micah. Both men had unknowingly played a large role in bringing Gabe back from the brink of insanity after the shooting. Now he found himself relying on them far more than he liked. Micah had been dealt a much heavier blow than Gabe by life, what with the war and the scars it left on his mind, body and soul. But he was ever-present and strong for Gabe.
Then there was Tristan. From the first time they met and Tristan challenged him to face the pain in the wake of losing his lover head on, Gabe had been not only drawn to but dependent on him. Tristan dropped the file folder on the coffee table in front of him with a loud thwack, making Gabe jump.
