This is the scene where they meet. Freddie is Saoirse's Man of Honor for the wedding. John is Diego's Best Man. After 2 nights spent partying it up, Freddie-style, the bachelorette party is over, and Diego and John arrive, while the guests are also arriving in the hotels.
The next morning Saoirse's family started to check into the two hotels that had offered group rates. Saoirse, Jerene, Monique and Freddie grabbed a taxi and went to one of the hotels after breakfast, so Jerene and Monique could check into their rooms, while Saoirse checked into the Honeymoon Suite. She and Freddie checked out all of the amenities, laughing at the size of the California King four-poster bed. Freddie nicknamed it the gymnasium, while making suggestions for how to indulge in some light bondage using neck ties. Suddenly the door opened and Diego called out, "Where's my woman?"
Saoirse ran over to him and she jumped into his arms, wrapping her legs around him. He held her ass with both hands as they kissed as if they'd been separated for years, both completely oblivious that they were being watched.
Freddie shook his head, grinning at their display, before turning to talk to the man who had followed Diego into the room. Suddenly Freddie felt like all of the air had been sucked out of the room, and he stopped breathing, to stare open-mouthed at the most gorgeous man he had ever seen.
John approached him with a casual smile, extending his hand for a shake.
"Hi, I'm John Johnson, the best man."
Freddie held out his hand, while trying to stop his arm from shaking. When their palms met, John looked into his eyes sharply, in surprise, while Freddie felt the tingle race through his whole body, to end up centered in his groin, making his jeans suddenly way too tight.
"I'll say you are," he stammered, blushing as he recovered himself quickly." I mean--hello, I'm Freddie Landon. I'm the maid, I mean, man of honor."
"So you're Saoirse's best friend from back when you were little kids?"
He nodded, "Yup."
And you're the man she told me was closeted so tightly the door had never been opened? Sam, we're not even any more. I owe you big time for this gorgeous man that I'm going to seduce as quickly as possible!
Freddie waved at the wedding couple, and said, "Maybe we should give them a little privacy?"
John glanced at them and nodded.
Both men made for the door, and Freddie announced as they passed, "You guys really need to come up for air or you're going to pass out from lack of oxygen. John and I are heading down to the bar in the lobby.You can meet us down there when you're--um--done."
Note: I write lots of inter-racial romances, because that's the way the world looks to me. In the same way, I also know that love is love, no matter whom you desire. So I may be a day late with my post, but I celebrate love of many permutations every day in my books. Enjoy!
