Indy will do anything to prevent his mobster ex from finding him. Their last encounter left Indy recovering for months in the hospital, and ever since he’s become an expert at hiding in plain sight. Determined to stay under the radar, he takes on a new identity and moves from place to place. His life has no room for friendships, let alone love, so he keeps his heart firmly closed. After all, he has nothing to offer but a damaged body and a broken soul. Plus, he’s so done with men. Until he meets the man who breaks through all his defenses.
Former Army Medic Noah came back damaged from his last tour—in more than one way. Between supporting his best friend who’s struggling with PTSD, dealing with his own issues, and the stress of his job as a physician assistant, rebuilding his life seems impossible. There’s little time for what Noah needs, let alone for what he wants. When he meets Indy, Noah discovers what he wants more than anything: for Indy to stay.
Indy never expected the strong, confident Noah to be as damaged and broken as himself. But what will happen if he starts letting Noah in? Indy knows he should run to protect himself and Noah.
Noah needs Indy to stay more than anything. But will what little he has to offer be enough to make Indy trust him and stay?
No Filter is a steamy M/M romance that ends with a HFN, but with the promise of a HEA. It’s the first book in the No Shame Series, and is not a stand-alone novel. It contains hot sex, a hint of a ménage, lots of talk about hot sex, flashbacks of said hot sex, and…Oh well, you get the idea. Also: trigger warning for mentions of sexual abuse.
“I don’t have much experience, Indy, so you’ll have to tell me want you want,” Josh said. He was sporting an adorably serious expression, as if he was ready to take notes in order to pass a test.
“Same here,” Noah said. Indy’s eyes widened and Josh frowned. “What?” Noah asked defensively. “I enlisted when I was eighteen and thought I was straight, okay? Not a lot of available girls in the army. I only got to fuck some girls in the months before I enlisted, but I don’t remember much since I was drunk half the time. Plus, even then, me and Josh were pretty tight, and we hung out together most of the time. Most of my experience is with you, Josh, and you’re definitely the only guy I’ve ever fucked.”
“I know for a fact you banged what’s-her-name in your dad’s office. Lieutenant Dallas,” Josh said.
“First of all, her name was Meghan. You don’t call someone lieutenant when you’re banging her, as you put it so eloquently. But more importantly, what do you mean ‘know for a fact’? It happened only once, and I’m pretty sure I didn’t tell you.”
A devilish grin spread across Josh’s face. “I watched you. We had agreed to grab a movie, remember? I was supposed to meet you at your dad’s office, but I got confused on the time and was an hour early. Had quite the front-row seat there to your, erm, activities. She was limber.”
Indy hadn’t thought it was possible, but Noah blushed deeply. “Shit, I can’t believe you watched me, you perv. Probably got off on it too, right?”
Josh laughed. “Hell, yeah. You were pounding away, and I got to watch your gorgeous ass. Exquisite view. Spanked myself to that memory quite a few times.”
“Was she any good?” Indy asked, gladly adding fuel to Noah’s embarrassment.
“Oh, I’m sure she was. I was eighteen, and she was in her thirties, recently divorced. She came on so strong, and I didn’t have the heart to tell her no, since she clearly needed an ego boost, so I went along with it. It was nice, and I think she liked it, because she kept screaming my name, but I had no idea what I was doing. And like I said, my experience with guys is non-existent, except for Josh here.”
“Well, that’s reassuring,” Indy said, his eyes sparkling.
“Luckily, they taught me some stuff in medical training,” Noah said dryly.
Indy grinned. “One can only hope.”
“So the bottom-line is that none of us know what we’re doing, which means we’re fucked,” Josh said.
When she was a little tot, Nora’s mom got a library subscription for her. That, as they say, was that, and a lifelong love for books was born. Nora never stopped reading and doesn’t exaggerate when she says she devours books, rather than plain reads them. She started writing stories as soon as she could hold a pen, and wrote her first full book as a teen (on a typewriter!). It took her waaaay too long to follow her dream to become a romance author.
Nora writes M/M romance, because hello, sexy boys, and likes her men flawed, strong, and a tad broken. She appreciates a little kink, but insists on a happy ever after.
