Brett Rocha retired from pro-hockey while still at the top of his game. Co-owner of a chain of restaurants and an inherited ice skating academy, he seems to have it all. Despite his fame, wealth, and good fortune, though, Brett suddenly finds himself painfully alone.
Ex-Olympic figure skating star Rylan Hennessy transitioned to professional ice dancing with Celia, Brett’s sister and Rylan’s lifelong partner on the ice. Then tragedy strikes, and Rylan’s world is turned upside down, too.
With the unexpected death of Celia, Brett and Rylan are drawn together through their mutual grief. Their bond strengthens when Brett introduces Rylan to BDSM, a lifestyle Rylan has never experienced before. While the mystery of Celia’s murder still needs to be solved, a second tragedy threatens to tear them apart.
Will their relationship survive, or will love be enough to see them through this life altering, harrowing change?
Where to find Edge Jump:
And an exclusive excerpt:
Shrugging again Rylan stared past Brett at the wall. Oneof the many people who helped care for patients came in.
“Vitals,” he announced. “I’m Jack.”
Brett lost track of all their names and was surprised at how many different people there were, all doing different jobs to care for the patients. After Rylan’s blood pressure and whatever else they kept track of was recorded, Jack tried to get Rylan out of bed and to the bathroom.
“I can’t,” Rylan grumbled, turning his head so he wasn’t making eye contact.
“Oh, with a little help, I bet you can.” Jack grabbed a walker sitting against the wall and moved it closer to the bed.
“Walkers are much less wieldy than crutches and they have more stability. It takes a bit of practice to get the hang of one but you’ll find that—”
“I can’t.” Rylan shouted and sent the tray of food tumbling to the floor.
Jack apparently had dealt with this sort of reaction a lot. He didn’t seem flustered or insulted. He simply cleaned everything off the floor and said, “I’ll get you a new breakfast. In the meantime, I’ll help you with the bedpan.”
Rylan winced at the word ‘bedpan’, but didn’t refuse. Brett had watched the exchange from a spot near the window where he’d moved to give Jack room to work. Taking a few steps forward he asked Jack, “Would you mind if Rylan and I talked privately for a few minutes?”
Jack smiled. “It’ll take me fifteen minutes or so to get another tray of food.” He nodded at Brett then Rylan and left.
When the door was shut, Brett pointed to the bathroom.
“Get out of the bed and go in there,” he said in a soft, even voice.
“I can’t. I can’t walk, can’t skate, can’t do a fucking thing. I sit here and wonder how long will it be—?” Rylan shouted before glaring at the wall and clamping his lips shut.
“I’m not going anywhere, Rylan,” Brett said.
“Why not? It’s not as if I’m any good now.”
“If you want to insult me, do it to my face, not that goddamn wall!” Brett snapped. When Rylan didn’t respond, but continued to stare at the wall, Brett growled, “Look at me, boy.
When you talk to me and ask when I’m walking out on you, you will fucking look me in the eye! Boy.”
About Elizabeth Noble:
Mystery, action, chills and thrills spiced with romance and desire. Elizabeth Noble started telling stories before she actually knew how to write, and her family was very happy when she learned to put words on a page. Those words turned into books and fanfiction that turned into a genuine love of M/M romance fiction. Being able to share her works with Dreamspinner is really a dream come true. She has a real love for a good mystery complete with murder and twisty plots as well as all things sci-fi, futuristic, and supernatural and a bit of an unnatural interest in a super-volcano in Wyoming.
Elizabeth has three grown children and is now happily owned by an adorable mixed breed canine princess, a spunky Welsh Corgi and their sidekick, tabby cat. She lives in her native northeast Ohio, the perfect place for gardening and winter and summer sports (go Tribe and Cavs!) and stargazing all year long. When she’s not writing she’s working as a veterinary nurse, so don’t be surprised to see her men with a pet or three who are a very big part of their lives.
Elizabeth received several amateur writing awards. Since being published several of her novels have received Honorable Mentions in the Rainbow Awards. Jewel Cave was a runner up in the Gay Mystery/Thriller category in the 2015 Rainbow Awards. Ringed Love was a winner in the Gay Fantasy Romance category of the 2016 Rainbow Awards.
