Just Drive

Anchor Point Series, Book 1
by L.A. Witt
Borrow Borrow Borrow Borrow Borrow Borrow

For Sean Wright, driving a cab in the tiny Navy town of Anchor Point isn't an exciting job...until he picks up just-dumped Paul Richards. A drive turns into a walk on the pier, which turns into the hottest hookup Sean's had in ages.

After a long overdue breakup, Paul can't believe his luck. Of all the drivers, he's picked up by the gorgeous, gay, and very willing Sean. Younger guys aren't usually his thing, but Paul can't resist.

One taste and neither man can get enough...right up until they realize that Paul is Sean's father's commanding officer and the last man Sean should be involved with.

With two careers on the line, their only option is to back off. It's not easy, though; the sex and the emotional connection are exactly what both men have been craving for a long time. But Paul has devoted twenty-four years to his career and his dream of making admiral. If he's caught with Sean, that's all over. He has to choose — stay the course, or trade it all for the man who drove off with his heart.

    Chapter One

    Sean

    "Just drive."

    The voice from the backseat was quiet and flat. Not rude, not demanding, but not all that friendly either. Which was fine — people called the company for a cab, not conversation.

    I didn't move, though. Tapping my thumbs on the wheel, I looked in the rearview. I couldn't see him very well; he'd taken the seat directly behind mine, and he was staring out the window toward the strip mall across the street. What little of his face made it to the mirror was heavily shadowed thanks to the bright lights from the hotel's reception area.

    "Um." I cleared my throat. "I need an address. Or the name of a place." I glanced at the screen with the message from dispatch. My passenger had specifically requested someone with base access. "Do you want to go to the base?"

    He released a long breath, and clothes and upholstery rustled as he shifted behind me. "You get paid by time or distance?"

    Dude, what the hell? You want to go somewhere or not?

    "Distance. Unless I'm waiting for you."

    He turned toward me. Shadows slipped far enough off his face to give me a glimpse of tired eyes and prominent, angular features. "Whatever the meter says at the end of the night, I'll double it." He faced the window again. "Just drive."

    I bit back my frustration. "Where?"

    "Anywhere." He seemed to be focused on something outside. All I could see was the outline of the back of his head and neck, and the top of his jacket collar. In a voice so low I wondered if he was speaking to me or himself, he added, "I'm not ready to go home, and I sure as fuck can't stay here."

    I glanced at the hotel he'd come out of. Message received. I put the car in drive, pulled out of the reception area, and turned onto the road. Maybe he'd be more willing to cough up a destination once this place had disappeared into the rearview.

    Suit yourself, dude. I'm holding you to that double fare.

    Admittedly, I was curious. If this was a walk of shame, he wouldn't be the first. I'd picked up plenty of people who were slinking out after a one-night stand they obviously regretted, and a few who needed to make a quick exit before they were busted by a partner who wouldn't be pleased. Then there were the people who'd obviously had an amazing night — maybe with a stranger, maybe not — and grinned all the way back to their own places. Hotel pickups in this town were nothing if not interesting.

    This guy hadn't been carrying a bag when he'd come out. Eyes down, hands in his jacket pockets, he'd walked like he was on autopilot. Maybe he'd been kicked out by someone who was still in a room with his luggage? Or he and someone else had rented a room for a short time, and things hadn't gone as planned?

    I wasn't clairvoyant, so I wasn't going to figure it out.

    For a solid ten minutes, the only sounds in my car were the AC and the road noise as I followed the gritty highway toward town. I didn't even have the radio on — I never did when I had a passenger — but I was tempted right then to find some music. With my luck, though, I'd probably put on some song that would annoy him, or would strike some nerve. Like the time a guy had gotten into my car and, when a particularly sad country song came on, started bawling about the woman who'd just dumped him. That had been one long, awkward ride.

    So yeah. Radio off.

    I subtly tapped my thumbs on the wheel, keeping the beat of the song that had been stuck in my head all night. It was something to do, anyway.

    From time to time, I caught a glimpse of pale light hinting at his features. He must've been...
