Book Excerpt: Haka Ever After

 

“Will you stop laughing? How am I supposed to keep an erection when you’re giggling like a mad hyena?” Taine Afoa sounded serious for all of five seconds before he broke out laughing along with his lover, Freddie Whittle. “Shite. Untie me before I hurt myself.”

The two men had been together for a while now. They were opposites in size; Taine was practically a giant compared to the slight Freddie, a young nurse who’d fallen head over heels in lust and then love with the Māori-Scottish former rugby player.

Freddie tried. He really did. If he could’ve stopped laughing, he might’ve managed to do more than lie on the floor trying to recall how to breathe normally. “Coc y gath.

“Don’t say I told you so—and stop calling me a sheep’s willy.” Taine ground out the words after several minutes of breathless mirth. “Bollocks.”

It had been his idea.

Why don’t you try tying me up?

Aren’t you curious?

Truth be told, Freddie wasn’t all that curious to have the restrained shoe on the other foot, but no matter how much he tried to convince Taine, they still wound up trying it anyway. A memorable mistake that he wished he’d gotten a video of it.

It started fine. Taine got up on the bed and rested on his knees. With quite a bit of fumbling, Freddie managed to get the larger man’s wrists and ankles secured. He’d stepped back to survey his work, and the fit of giggles had hit him almost instantly.

Why is this so funny?

Freddie had no idea what set him off. The giggling eventually morphed into full belly-shaking laughter. He ended up on the floor with his arm clutching his waist.

“Are you going to untie me?” Taine asked patiently. “Can you manage the knots?”

Freddie dragged himself up off the floor and began to slowly undo the knots to release Taine. “Uhm.

“What’ve you done?” Taine craned his head around as far as the position would allow. “You bollocksed up the knots, didn’t you?”

I am sad the series has come to an end, and unbelievably elated to one more glimpse at my favorite rugby men! What the Author has created here is unbelievable. Such heart, love and silliness that make up the great relationships, theses men have. These characters and the small sea side town will forever stay with me.5 Stars from Socially Awkward Book Nerd

Book Reviews: Haka Ever After

“There comes along, once in a rare while, a book that leaves you feeling all warm and fuzzie inside. A book that is far too stinking cute for its own good. A book that wraps up an ENTIRE series in so few pages. A book that is simply, brilliant.” 5 Stars from Debbie A at Archaeolibrarian
