MENDING A BROKEN HEART
JAMES LEE HARD
After having his heart broken by his boyfriend, David buys a plane ticket and runs away from New York to the farthest place possible. He finds himself on the other side of the Atlantic, in a small country that’s as beautiful as it is frozen in time.
David’s successful career as a writer has stalled. His muse seems to have abandoned him; all he can think of is Steven’s harsh words about him and his neediness. So he retreats to a house in the middle of a beautiful mountain range, perched on a bay of crystalline, blue-green waters — the same one where he and Steven had planned to go and spend a romantic getaway together.
Maybe Steven is right. Maybe David is pitiful and can’t do anything right.
Still jet lagged and questioning himself, David meets Manuel, a Portuguese hunk whose body looks like Michelangelo himself chiseled it. He’s handsome, easygoing, and exudes an aura of self-confidence that makes David want to know more about him. Manuel is everything David is not, and he finds himself drawn to him, his charisma pulling him ever closer.
But is Manuel enough to make him forget about his heartbreak and insecurities?
Can David let go of his past?
“He leaned in and placed his hand on David’s cheek, almost covering his whole face in the process. Time seemed to slow down as David saw Manuel lean in for a kiss and felt his own heartbeat against Manuel’s warm hand.
Before he could realize what was happening, Manuel kissed him, his soft lips touching his, the taste of coffee invading him. David thought to protest and explain to Manuel things couldn’t be like that.
He wasn’t an easy man who slept with the first guy that winked at him. His reasoning, however, was washed away by the lust that took a hold of his body, as Manuel’s tongue began to explore his.
His slow exploration quickly transformed into a passionate kiss. Manuel moved in closer to David. His hands slid to his torso and grabbed firmly, pulling David closer to him.
David marveled at the ease with which Manuel pulled him in, as if he was light as a feather, but quickly forgot it as their chests bumped into each other. Manuel’s heart thumped wildly underneath his flannel shirt and his body heat enveloped David in an erotic embrace.
Suddenly, David realized this was his chance to see what hid underneath Manuel’s clothes. He wouldn’t need to depend on his imagination anymore.”
