M/M Erotic Romance, Erotic Romantic Comedy

Karl “Mac” MacCarrick is an all-American boy. He’s a loyal friend, a loving son, and a dedicated student. On the surface, Mac has it all—a starting position on his Catholic college’s football team, the heart of his coach’s daughter. But Mac’s heart has never belonged to Kyauta, or any other girl, quite like he thinks it should.

After the Miracles training staff introduces alternative therapies to the team, Mac has wild dreams about his therapist, Kyauta's handsome brother Jalil. Mac feels torn. Although he doesn't want to hurt Kyauta, he doesn't think it would be right to lead her on if he can't provide her with the love she deserves.

The time has come for Mac to decide. He intends to liberate himself from his dilemma on the Fourth of July. Will he follow the path he feels is right for him, or will he adhere to the expectations of his church and society?

The following snippet is MUY CALIENTE! It is intended for adult readers only.

Jalil laughed, and I relaxed under his familiar and comforting touch. It was all perfectly clinical but friendly at the same time, until I had THE DREAM.

I woke up on the table. At least I thought I was awake. That’s how real what happened next felt.

“Mac, you’re really exhausted,” Jalil said. “I had to call your name three times. What kind of therapist would I be if I let you leave here with this much tension? Roll on your back and let me take care of it for you.”

I expected Jalil to work my arms or legs, but instead he pressed his lips to mine. I didn’t resist as his tongue slid into my mouth. I’ve never French kissed anyone before, and the sensation went right to my dick. I hungrily returned Jalil’s hot kiss, and my cock stood at attention as he slid first one, then two slick fingers into my ass. He pumped the fingers inside me as I groaned with pleasure, thrusting my hips.

“Oh, fuck, Jalil, I need this!” I snarled.

I pulled Jalil to me, biting his shoulder as I came with his fingers thrusting deep in my ass. I’ve never been this aroused in my entire life.

The next thing I knew, I was waking up for real. Jalil was at my side, gently shaking my shoulder.

About Lil

Lil DeVille is a former nurse who started writing erotica after becoming disabled in 2019. She enjoys imagining quirky characters involved in lusty encounters anywhere from a tropical paradise or a rustic mountain village in the present day to an all-male mining colony on an asteroid in the distant future. 

Lil likes to end her stories on a Happy for Now note with a promise of more good things to come. Although her writing sometimes addresses difficult subjects such as alcoholism or past abuse, she brings a note of love and support to scenes involving these issues.

Lil lives in a remote prairie town in Northeastern Colorado with her adult son and three cats. When she isn’t cooking up spicy stories, she enjoys baking and crafts.
