Excerpt Two: The drive to Cade’s parents’ house took nearly thirty minutes. When Braden realized what area they were driving toward, he got even more nervous, if that was possible. These people were out of his league. “Your parents live in Sea Cliff, don’t they?” “Braden, you make it sound appalling. I promise you, my family members are not pretentious douchebags.” “I feel out of my element. This is so beyond what I’m used to, Zavier.” Cade smirked at him. “You’re really feeling that uncomfortable? Enough to use my full name?” “Stop teasing me! Seriously, am I even going to use the right fork?” Cade laughed in disbelief. “The right fork? What is this, Pretty Woman? I promise that there isn’t a dour majordomo named Jeeves waiting to open their door and a French chef named Pierre cooking a seven course meal with five forks! It’s a simple family meal.” Braden snickered, he couldn’t help it. “You’ve seen Pretty Woman?” Cade heaved a put upon sigh. “Who hasn’t? I have a sister, don’t I?” “Ugh, fine! But if I embarrass you or something, don’t blame me!” “Braden, I love you. I’m going to assume you’re teasing me right now, because if you’re seriously thinking that you could ever embarrass me, you’re going to piss me the fuck off and I don’t want you to meet my family when I’m feeling angry.” Braden made a frustrated sound and turned in his seat to face Cade. “I’m sorry. I know I’m being ridiculous. I don’t know why I’m so nervous! I just feel like you’re my forever and if I don’t make a good impression on your family tonight, I could lose you.” Cade had pulled into his parents’ driveway, and Braden, so caught up in his confession, didn’t know they were there. He put the car in park and turned in his seat toward Braden. “Baby, I’m your forever, just as you’re mine. That’s the only thing they’re concerned about. I promise they aren’t the type of people to pass judgement like that. Now, are you ready to do this?” “Ready as I’ll ever be, I suppose.” “Good. Brace yourself.” Braden looked alarmed and then jumped in his seat when his door was opened behind his back.
