Overview

Amos thinks he's gotten away from it all, heading off to the wilderness after the wild life in the city leads him right into an early retirement. Dave thinks he's gotten over Amos, moving on with his life and driving himself to success at all costs. They've gone their separate ways, and think they're happy with what they've made of their lives.

So what happens when these two meet up on Dave's long overdue vacation, forced on him by his personal assistant? Sparks fly, that's what, and the two of them set about learning that maybe they hadn't gotten over each other as well as they thought. Moving from the rugged Colorado mountains to the bright lights of the big city and back again, Stress Relief follows Dave and Amos as they learn that they can balance two very different lives as long as they're willing to compromise a little. And with these two hard headed guys? That's quite a balancing act.

Sexy, fast-paced and full of love and life, Stress Relief has it all. Danger, pain, separation and reconciliation.

BA Tortuga is the author of Rain and Whiskey, Racing the Moon and Timeless Hunger.

Read an Excerpt

He took about two steps forward before he got a good look at the man and his heart stopped. Just stopped.

There were things that were never supposed to happen in a man's life. You should never have to see your parents naked, you should never have to lose your balls, you should never have to meet the man who left you and the rat race behind to get back to nature. Never.

"Amos."

The dearly held hope that he was wrong died a quick death when Amos stopped as if hit with a brick. "Well, I'll be damned. Dave."

"David." The correction was immediate, instinctive. "Jesus. I didn't expect to see you."

Not now. Hell, not ever.

"Yeah." Amos looked him over, green eyes bright and curious. Noting the changes, no doubt, but that was only fair, as Amos had changed as well. There was a short beard now, neatly trimmed, and the brown hair was streaked liberally with blonde. "You look good."

"Thank you." It was amazing what an eye tuck and a diet of bagels and uppers could do for a man. "You do, too. The years have been good to you."

His heart was pounding and he simply didn't know what to do. He wasn't ready. He wasn't ever going to be ready for this, but why couldn't he have been in a suit? Been in a classy joint sipping a martini and able to just smile coolly and escape?

Amos snapped out of the shock first, or at least it appeared so, and reached out to take his bag from the old man, nodding. "Thanks, Bob. I'll see you and Bob tomorrow night. You take good care of Noodle, okay? Oh, and he ate a wrapper."
