Overview

Sometimes, it's better to be friends than lovers...or is it? Onstage, AJ Mobley is smart, clever, and commands attention. Offstage, he's shy and lost to everything but his music. The reason for the difference? Tyrone Dahl. For the past two years, AJ and Tyrone have been the star attraction at the Reno bar, Heat Wave. Their "dueling pianos" act is fast and funny, but their camaraderie isn't just under the spotlight. They're best friends away from the show, too. An opportunity to take their act to Las Vegas seems like the perfect next step in their careers. There's only one problem--AJ's been in love with Tyrone almost from the moment they met. He's hidden it well; after all, Tyrone might be bisexual, but he's also never lacked for company. AJ would rather be his friend than another notch on his bedpost. But Vegas beckons. And Tyrone wants to take the leap. The last thing AJ can ever do is deny his best friend... Genres: Gay / Contemporary / The Arts / Interracial / Multicultural

Read an Excerpt

It was impossible to stay annoyed at Tyrone when he did that, even worse when he looked like that. Against his better judgment, AJ relaxed and shifted in order to make both of them more comfortable.

"So you had a good time tonight?" he asked. If Tyrone wanted to tell his stories, AJ would listen. He might put up a fuss at first, but honestly, it was better than Tyrone leaving him alone again.

"Not for the reason you think I did. I didn't sleep with her. You know I said that to mess with you."

"Because I think so clearly when I'm woken up at four-thirty in the morning."

"You're going to remind me of that until the day we die, aren't you?"

"No, just until the next time you pull a stunt like this again."

Tyrone chuckled. "Kira loves us." Back to the earlier subject, it looked like. "She's been scouting around, trying to find something that'll mesh with the vibe of this new restaurant, and she thinks we're perfect for it."

"She thinks we're perfect after one show?"

"Nah, this was the fourth one she saw. You never saw her watching before?"

AJ shook his head. Unless they were right up by his piano, he rarely remembered anybody in the audience. All his attention was fixed on Tyrone.

"Anyway, we'd get a three-month probationary contract, twice what we're making now, plus tips. In Vegas. You just know those are going to be sweet."

"But we live here, Ty. You really want to up and move like that?"

A frown replaced Tyrone's smile. "What's wrong? This is our dream."

"No, it's your dream. I'm perfectly happy here."

"You call this happy?" He gestured around the dark apartment, the silence echoing back at them. "You live thequietest life of anyone I know. I can't even remember the last time I saw you go out on a date."

"Because it sucks being gay in Reno," AJ countered. He might have had to hide his feelings for Tyrone all this time, but at least he hadn't had to worry about disguising the truth about his sexuality. That had been blurted out the very first time he saw Tyrone kissing a guy. His hopes had soared for precious seconds until Tyrone laughed it off and explained he was bi. Which in AJ's book meant straight, but horny enough to take it anywhere he could.

Tyrone made a face, brushing him off. "That's no excuse. Plenty of guys come through who look at you twice. You're just too much in love with your piano to notice them checking you out."

No, I'm just too much in love with you to want anyone else. He wondered how things would change if he ever found the nerve to tell Tyrone the truth. But almost as quickly as he wondered, he laughed at the idea. It was ridiculous to even contemplate because he and Tyrone weren't cut from the same cut of cloth at all.

"I'm not interested in one-night stands," AJ said. "I can't dissociate like you can."

Dark, liquid eyes searched his, long enough for AJ to start getting lost in them. "Which is even more reason for you to move to Vegas with me. If there's anyone I know who deserves to find someone, it's you."
