Something in Harley’s voice made Quinn look at him more closely. He took in the line between Harley’s eyebrows, the quiver of those lush lips.
“You’re going to be okay,” he whispered and raised his hand to wipe the tears from Harley’s eyes. He thought he’d merely meant it as a comforting gesture, but when Harley tilted his head into the touch, Quinn realized it was the invitation he’d been hoping for all along. Leaning in, he trailed the moist line a tear had left with his lips, kissing it away as he followed it right to where it had pooled in the corner of Harley’s mouth.
The kiss was nothing but a tentative brush of skin at first, but Harley’s lips yielded willingly to allow Quinn’s tongue into the sweet warmth. The salt of Harley’s tears still lingered between them but was soon replaced by a different taste. A taste that had once been so wonderfully familiar. Harley loved kissing and was extremely good at it. Letting Quinn reacquaint himself with his mouth, his own tongue appeared occasionally to play, stroking and caressing Quinn’s in the most sensual way. Quinn’s husky groan was echoed by an equally aroused sound from Harley, one that went straight to Quinn’s groin.

It had been too long since he’d been with anybody, and his self-control around Harley had never been that good anyway. He’d be lucky to last more than a few minutes if Harley kept going at that pace, which he seemed to intend doing. Harley’s hips flexed, moving to create the friction they both needed while his hands roamed over Quinn’s body...

They're an unlikely couple—Harley Sinclair, pilot and openly gay, likes fast cars, easy boys, and late nights.
