Under the Gun was re-released last July and I just released Under the Gun 2. This is an M/M novella series with former Marine Malik Day and Private Investigator Camdyn Hardy. The books were originally written in 2013, so I kept the timeline there, but revised and re-edited both books! Both are $0.99 or FREE with KU!
Blurb: Pre DADT Repeal…
Jaded by his lover leaving him for a woman, Camdyn Hardy is looking for love and partnership. When he goes to the local shooting range, he only wants to let off a little steam, but meeting Malik Day, a discharged army serviceman is a welcome surprise.
Malik’s issues go farther than just a lack of love. Discharged for defending a fellow gay soldier got him kicked out of the Army and back at home with his bible thumping parents. When Malik meets Camdyn, the sparks are there, but both of them are too afraid to make their desires known to each other.
After several conversations and dates, Camdyn and Malik are hot for one another and ready to take the next step. When they do, they discover they have a lot more in common than just a need for a committed relationship.

Blurb: With Hardy and Day PI agency fully operational, Malik and Camdyn get their first case; a millionaire checking out a potential man for his daughter. He wants him followed, everything checked to the letter before he allows them to marry, but just before they deem him squeaky clean, the young man has a secret that could conflict with their work as independent investigators.
Malik and Camdyn have to do what’s right for them as well as they’re clients, but how will they satisfy everyone without compromising their personal beliefs?
Admiring his handiwork, Camdyn stepped back and wiped the sweat from his brow.
“Not bad for an amateur,” he joked and threw the paint brush onto the tarp. “Damn, I’m starving. Where’s that man of mine?”
Camdyn wanted to give Malik another call to see how far away he was, but he didn’t want to appear too needy.
Glancing at the clock, Camdyn moved the ladder and picked up his supplies, placing them onto his work cart.
Another reason to hire a pro – cleaning up would be someone else’s responsibility.
Although he loved doing the improvements, Camdyn hated doing the cleanup. Not only that, he needed a shower badly, but he decided that could wait until Malik returned.
We’ll soap each other up this afternoon!
And why not? Seemed like a good idea since he wasn’t that busy with clients today.
Continuing his job of tidying up, he lifted the tarp and rolled it up into a ball just as the door behind him opened.
“Hey, babe.” The heavy footsteps from behind caused his cock to jolt in his coveralls.
Camdyn met Malik’s wild, brown gaze and tossed the covering aside.
“Hiya sexy, missed ya.”
Malik dropped his duffel and sauntered over, settling into his embrace. “Missed you too, Cam.”
He bear hugged him tightly and stroked Camdyn’s back through his clothing.
Smelling Malik’s aftershave and his natural musk, Camdyn smiled to himself and buried his face into his man’s neck. Malik’s cock met his through the material of their clothes, wreaking havoc on Camdyn’s body.
“Mmm, you smell divine. Wanna shower with me, sugah?”
“Sure, why not. Gotta wash the hatred off me.”
Camdyn exhaled deeply and rocked with him. “I’m sorry you gotta go through that. It’s like your parents can’t be happy with the strides you’re making, huh?”
“Yeah, they can’t. They were happy when I joined the Army and graduated from high school, but other than that, no. I’m not married to a woman with kids and they got a serious problem with that.”
“Ah well, too damn bad,” Camdyn retorted and kissed him lightly on the lips. “I ain’t no woman and I’m not trying to be. They should accept you as you are and move on with their own damn lives.”
“Yeah, they should. I wish I could tell them to do that.” Malik backed up and ran his long hands over Camdyn’s chest. “Ooh, you smell like hard work. Driving me crazy!”
Camdyn hissed from Malik’s soft touches and inched in closer. “Hard work is right. I didn’t know I could do so much damage to a damn wall. Jeezus. Anyways, your folks need to get a grip and you can tell them.”
“Naw, naw. One thing I never do is talk back to my folks. They might be a couple of annoying bible thumpers, but I refuse to treat them badly. They are my parents, after all.”
“It’s not considered treating them badly when you’re telling them to piss off in a nice way,” Camdyn answered. Although he was horny as hell right now, he couldn’t get the thought of Mr. And Mrs. Day’s sour attitudes out of his mind.
“Well, in their mind it is. C’mon, let’s not worry about this now, hmm? How about a shower and then you can help me study for the exams. Are you done?”
Camdyn responded with a nod, frowning. “Yeah, I am. Just cleaning up, that’s all. Didn’t take as long as I expected it to either.”
As he turned around and faced the wall, Camdyn felt Malik’s arms encircle his waist, obviously attempting to get Camdyn’s mind off Malik’s parents. When the conversation about Malik’s folks came up, all of Camdyn’s arousal quickly faded away.
Camdyn really wished he could give the both of them a piece of his mind.
