Strong Enough

by Melanie Harlow & David Romanov

Genre: Contemporary MM Romance

Publication Date: June 19, 2017

SYNOPSIS:

I wasn’t looking for Derek Wolfe.

I wasn’t looking for anybody. All I wanted was to start a new life in America. But when I

found myself stranded here with no place to go, he came to my rescue, offering me a

place to stay.

He’s smart, successful, and sexy as hell—I can barely sleep knowing he’s right down

the hall. And when the chemistry between us explodes one night with fierce, fiery

passion, it’s hard to deny there’s something real between us.

But he does.

He says he was drunk. He says it was a one-time thing. He says he’s not into guys and

what we did meant nothing.

He’s lying. Because it happened again, and again, and again. And it’s better every time.

I know we could be good together, and I want the chance to try, but I’m done hiding. If

he’s not strong enough to admit the truth, I’ll have to be strong enough to walk away.

Excerpt:

Figuring I’d had enough booze to blunt his effect on me, I rolled up the sleeves of my black

button-down shirt and moved next to him. “I’ll help you.”

“Okay.”

I caught him trying to not to look at my wrists and forearms, and it made me smile. How does it

feel to want someone and have to hide it? “You wash, I’ll dry?”

“Sounds good.”

We worked in silence, shoulder to shoulder, and I found myself increasingly—and

disturbingly—pleased at the thought of him being attracted to me and being forced to conceal it.

It was fucking horrible of me to take pleasure in his discomfort, but I liked being secretly

wanted. Being illicitly desired. Being the object of his covert glances and maybe even his

darkest, dirtiest thoughts. I let our arms touch more than necessary, as thrilled by the physical

contact as I was by the thought of what it might be doing to him.

For there is no man who does not sin.

My dick started to get hard, clearly unbothered by the whiskey that was breaking down my

inhibitions, pushing past all my defenses, and letting my imagination run wild.

What’s in that gorgeous head of yours, Maxim? What’s behind those cobalt eyes? What would

you do to me, if I let you? What would you let me do to you?

“Carolyn is so nice,” he said, handing me the last serving dish left to be dried.

What? He was thinking about Carolyn right now? He wasn’t supposed to be thinking about

Carolyn—I was, goddammit!

But I wasn’t. “Yeah.”

He turned off the water. Rested his wet hands on the edge of the sink. “I didn’t realize you had a

girlfriend.”

And I heard it in his voice—the slightest edge of jealousy, so faint I might never have noticed it

had I not been so hyperaware of everything about him right now. I fucking loved it.

“She’s not my girlfriend.”

“Oh.” Now there was confusion. “I guess I misunderstood.”

“She wants to be my girlfriend.”

Silence.

Of course there was silence. Maxim would never ask what the problem was. But I wanted to tell

him. I wanted him to know. I wanted to share the impossible longing I felt with one person who

might understand it.

“The problem is me.”

He was completely still. Before I could stop myself, I covered his right hand with my left.

“Sometimes I don’t know what I want.”

He yanked his hand from beneath mine and we faced each other.

For the first time tonight, I looked him right in the eye. Nothing around us existed for me

anymore. I heard only his breath. Smelled only his skin. Saw only his guarded expression.

I had to have him.

About David:

For David Romanov, STRONG ENOUGH is to a great extent autobiographical. Born in

Russia and raised in Europe, he landed in the United States at the age of 24, where he

learned a lot about cultural differences between East and West. David firmly believes in

‘The One’ and learning through love. When he isn’t traveling or educating Melanie in

Russian culture, he enjoys books and the company of his husband and dog in Los Angeles.
