Smile, wiggle, lie, apologise, and run for the hills.

That’s the formula Chris has used all his life, but this time, he has something he’s never had to lose before, a family that cares. The problem is, his new brother’s very edible friend isn’t fooled by his act. If his secrets are revealed, they won’t want him and he has nowhere else to go.

Thanks to a suicide bomber, ex-military police sergeant Jase Rosewood is back in the English countryside. His plans for quiet recuperation are ruined by the effervescent, go-go dancing twink who has everyone wrapped around his little finger. Luckily for the gullible Matt, Jase can smell a liar a mile away, and Chris Bacon, if that’s even his name, stinks to high heaven. Assigned ‘Chris-sitting’ duty while Matt’s on honeymoon, Jase has a week to discover what is hidden beneath the bright camouflage. It’s a job, just like any other, so why does it feel so different?
Unfortunately, Jase isn’t the only one drawn to the boy who can’t stay still, but instead of wanting to reveal his true colours; they want to dull them forever.

Contains issues of physical abuse, but not between the central couple.


“Go slow dance with your wife Mathew, or I’m stripping to ‘I’m holding out for a hero,’ right in the middle of the dance floor.”
Chris held up a finger and put an exaggerated thoughtful expression on his face. “Actually, that’s not a bad idea. It’ll exhaust all the old folks, the parents will take their kids away, which will leave us to have some proper fun. I think it’s about time I taught you provincial types how to go-go dance. This place would be seriously improved with some extra bump and grind.” He started to get up.
Matt got to his feet rapidly, using Chris’s shoulder to lever himself up. “Sit and stay.”
Chris grinned, then stuck his tongue out, moved his hands into a sit up and beg position and panted.
“Would you behave?” Matt growled but Chris’s grin only got wider.
“You’d better hurry up before I start humping your leg.” Then he looked over at Jase. “Actually, his leg looks far more interesting, well one of them does anyway.”
Putting his chin in his hand and his elbow on the table he stared at Jase while completely ignoring his brother who looked to the polystyrene ceiling for help.
“Love the red hat by the way, it definitely adds a certain something. So what’s your story soldier boy? Apart from the fact you used to fancy the pants off my brother. And what self-respecting rim-raider wouldn’t? He’s gorgeous, just like me.”
Still muttering to himself, Matt beat a hasty retreat as Jase sat and watched the Chris Show. This youngster might be able to wrap everyone else around his little finger, but he had interrogated all sorts of emotional young men over the last decade. This one was hiding something behind the bravado. He’d always found chatty prisoners easier to question, eventually they always felt the need to fill the silence.
“Strong and silent type, huh? I can work with that. Hopefully you’ll get so pissed off, that you’ll do something to shut me up. Personally I prefer being pinned down and silenced with a hot mouth. Or a dick. How about you? I’d guess you’re a dedicated top, which certainly floats my boat, although if you like switching, I can-”
“I’m not buying the act.”
Chris cocked his head to one side, making his dark curls bounce. His grin appearing forced for the first time.
“See? I knew I’d get you to talk, but I’ll take a rain-check on the smile, it could take all night and I can’t let any one fan monopolise the star of the event. I’m off to make some grannies blush, but you, Eddie Bull, are firmly on my ‘to-do’ list. See ya.”
