Full Description

Weddings are stressful under the best of circumstances, which this certainly isn’t. Following the release of his debut movie, No Apologies, Greg Falkner is working hard to be a better man to fiancé, Aaron Blake, despite his baser instincts. When their alma mater contacts Greg and asks him to serve as their celebrity master of ceremonies, for an upcoming charity event, he grudgingly accepts at Aaron’s urging.

Aaron admires the new man Greg has become, yet craves the old independence of his lover. He’d love to strike a compromise in the relationship and hopes that returning to their beginning will help Greg lay some personal demons to rest.

Neither man anticipates the violence that will befall one of them, potentially changing both lives in unimaginable ways. What emerges from the darkness, through frustrations and determination, is true deep love.

  • Note:Warning: This book contains explicit sexual situations, graphic language, and material that some readers may find objectionable: male/male sexual practices.
Excerpt
June 2003

The stairway to the second floor stretched up and away from Greg Falkner like his own personal Everest. Shouldering the carton of books he carried, he gritted his teeth against the burn in his calves and began the climb for what seemed like the thousandth time that afternoon.

“I still think the first floor is the place for a library,” Greg grumbled.

Not even winded, Aaron Blake pushed past him carrying an armful of hardware and tools for some floating shelves. Greg eyed Aaron’s jean-clad ass as he followed his lover up the stairs.

“Y’all’re not getting the best view all to yourself. The bedroom stays downstairs.” Aaron tossed the edict over his shoulder as he disappeared through the arched doorway across from the landing.

“It’s not like I’m the only one who’ll be in here,” Greg shot back, dropping the box to the floor just inside the door. He raked a hand through his sweaty hair and curled his lip as he eyed the jumbled piles littering the room. “We’d be done by now if we didn’t have to cart all this crap up here.”

Tools clattered into a growing pile, and Aaron turned to lean against the modern library table. A smolderingly slow sweep of his Pacific-blue eyes conveyed he liked what he saw. Greg’s hand fell to his side. Mesmerized, he stepped forward a pace as his lip recovered from its sneer.

When Aaron spoke, it was to issue a husky demand. “I want to lie in bed and watch you swimming. That’s why.”

Taking advantage of the flirty invitation in Aaron’s gaze, Greg took another step forward. With a quirk of his blond brow and a teasing lift of his lips, Aaron turned away and lifted the drill. The whine of the power tool cut through the silence. Perfunctory motion morphed into a seductive dance that inspired a lover’s wet dream.

Outside, high tide beckoned, the surf pounding hard and rhythmic, mimicking the awakening pulse of arousal. Greg stepped close and laid a hand on Aaron’s shoulder. The drilling stopped abruptly. Chest expanding on a whisper-soft sigh, Aaron dropped his head forward. Honey-streaked strands fell to the side with a brush of Greg’s fingers. Leaning in, he inhaled faint traces of cocoa butter sunblock as he ran the tip of his nose along silken skin. He breathed in deep, reveling in the scent of Aaron’s skin as memories of sun, sex, and sand made him hard—so hard his cock pulsed with sweetly aching need against the seam of his jeans. He savored the discomfort and pushed into it with a measured thrust against Aaron’s ass. Without stepping away, he took the drill from Aaron’s hand and placed it on the table.

It wasn’t often Greg topped Aaron. Got to watch his back arch and his body submit with wild abandon. Aaron always seemed so vigilant, so in control. It made breaking him down on those rare occasions all the sweeter. Sometimes, but not often, Aaron let him. Other times Aaron waited until the last second to turn the tables. Greg palmed the ridge of Aaron’s cock through his jeans, pressed their bodies closer, and idly wondered which it’d be today.

Teasing his fingertips over Aaron’s fly, Greg traced familiar ridges and outlines. Explored the rounded head of his lover’s cock and searched out the sweet spot close by. Discovery made, he pressed in a tight circular motion, creating friction and pressure. Aaron hummed his approval and let his head fall backward to rest on Greg’s shoulder.

On the other side of the window screen, the setting sun streaked the sky with orange hues. White sands stretched to cresting, white-frothed waters, but nature’s beauty couldn’t compare to the achingly intimate masterpiece of his lover’s face. Golden lashes fanned above exotic cheekbones. A blush painted a sunset glow across each tanned ridge. When Aaron opened his eyes, Greg found himself enraptured, caught in his own blue heaven.

Cheek to cheek they stood, the rasp of Aaron’s stubble heightening Greg’s senses. Anticipation built as he slowly popped buttons free to gain access to Aaron’s naked flesh. Sliding his fingers beneath the open placket of Aaron’s jeans, he grasped heated, silken skin and used his thumb to spread precum down the proud length of his lover’s cock.

Aaron pushed forward, encouraging a rhythm Greg easily found. Stroking. Gripping. Squeezing. Until Aaron’s thrusts became more insistent. Harsher. Moans escaped his lover’s lips with unconscious abandon as he rolled his head side to side. Enthralled with Aaron’s ecstasy, Greg almost ceased to notice the heaviness of his own erection. The only things that mattered were Aaron and Aaron’s pleasure.

Another squeeze and twist over the crown and down the shaft brought Aaron’s head up with a snap.

Opening his palm to ease the pressure, Greg whispered, “Not yet.”

“You’re a sadist.” Aaron’s breathless accusation brought a lazy smile to Greg’s lips.

He slid his gaze to the table where he’d tossed a bunch of Velcro strips earlier for bundling the computer wires. Smile broadening into a grin, one hand on Aaron’s belly pressing him backward, Greg used the other to scooch one of the longer strips closer until he had it in his fingers.

“Hands behind your back. Cross your wrists.” Greg’s sharp order jerked Aaron’s spine straight, but he complied.

The faint schripp of the tightening fabric elicited a gasp, followed by a breathless, “One.”

Coded threats wouldn’t stop Greg now. Not when they both knew Aaron could have stopped him at any time. He wanted this. They both wanted this.

“You’ll have to wait a while to exact your revenge, my friend,” Greg answered, curling his fingers around the fuzzy restraint to double-check its hold.

“Two.” The word came out on a growl as Aaron struggled against the Velcro.

“Shh.” Greg ran a soothing hand down Aaron’s back. “You’re all right. I’ve got you.”

Aaron drew in a deep, shuddering breath. Then another.

Vigilant to his lover’s struggle, Greg tensed. If Aaron showed any more signs of freaking, he’d let him go. He waited to see what Aaron would do. After a minute of steadying breaths, Aaron relaxed broad shoulders and rested his head against Greg’s shoulder once more.

“Now where was I?” Greg murmured.

Aaron flexed his fingers against Greg’s torso. “Racking up points for an ass ki—”

Greg clamped a hand over Aaron’s mouth and grabbed his cock at the same time.

“Relax and enjoy it.” Greg hooked a thumb in Aaron’s waistband and encouraged his jeans lower as he teased. “Who knows when I’ll feel like letting you get all the attention again?”

The expletive Aaron issued from beneath Greg’s hand sounded suspiciously like, “Fuck you.”

“No,” Greg murmured, baring Aaron’s ass with a tug at the denim. “My turn.”

Aaron bucked backward. Surprised, Greg fell on his ass, tugging Aaron with him. They landed in a panting heap on the floor. A jerk of Aaron’s shoulder and hips brought him around so they sat face to face. Eyes blazing, he canted toward Greg and bit his earlobe. Hard.

“Motherfucker!” Greg jerked Aaron away by his shoulders.

He touched his ear and came away with a pink smear on his fingertips. Gaped first at the blood and then at Aaron. The sparks in Aaron’s gaze said he was furious, but something just underneath gave Greg pause. Memories from their teenage years surfaced. He recalled struggling against Aaron in a field near school. One of the few times he’d gained the upper hand, and he’d had to fight for it. Fight hard. Greg narrowed his eyes. Aaron wanted a fight.

He launched himself forward, knocked Aaron backward, and pinned him to the floor. With one hand, he found the crotch of Aaron’s jeans. Shoved them lower. Hobbled, Aaron could only flail like a fish.

Greg grabbed a handful of cock and yanked.

Aaron yelped.

Greg squeezed harder. Tugged upward, compelling Aaron into an arch. His back left the floor, and Greg wedged a knee underneath to flip him over. Face-first, ass in the air, Aaron heaved and struggled to right himself. Greg pinned him with a hard grip on the back of his neck and a knee to his tangled jeans. Cheek pressed into the floor, Aaron turned beet red. Greg had no doubt he’d pay for this later, but right now it felt good to be on top. Full lips wuffling with each blown breath, Aaron struggled while Greg waited him out.

Tiring, Greg leaned low and mimicked Aaron’s New Orleans drawl. “Keep on and y’all’re headed for a reamin’ over the deck rail.”

Aaron stilled. Exhaled.

Greg grinned and fished inside Aaron’s pocket, knowing what he’d find there. A leather cock ring and a bubble packet of lube. He chuckled, low and dark. Leave it to Aaron. The man had perfect timing, and he always traveled prepared.

“You’re going to come so hard,” Greg said with a sympathetic sound. “Even with the ring.”

Eyes squeezed shut, Aaron tugged his bottom lip between his teeth in an exquisite display of submission all the more beautiful for its rarity. With efficient motions, Greg gathered Aaron’s balls to his cock and snapped the leather restraint around what had to be achingly hard flesh. Aaron breathed through his arousal and accepted his fate. Apparently the threat about public exhibition worked. God knew it always did the trick with him when Aaron used it.

“Feel good?” Greg asked to be certain.

Eyes still closed, Aaron swallowed. Nodded.

“Good.” Greg pressed a kiss against the tip of Aaron’s ear.

So happy to see the "real" Greg & Aaron! Review by Slick Reads
Quality
I’m always such an emotional basket case when I finish one of Tibby’s books and that’s not a bad thing, it just proves what an absolutely gifted writer she is. She makes me feel and she makes me think and most of all she reminds me why I love to read. Full Disclosure is a novella in her Hollywood series. If you haven’t read No Apologies and Acting Out you won’t understand what a huge deal this book is. In this story, we finally get to see a lot of the “real” relationship between Aaron and Greg from the first two books. I say real because in the first book (No Apologies) we mainly saw the Hollywood film version of their adolescent relationship, in book two (Acting Out) we saw little snippets of their grown up relationship which just had me (and I’m sure other readers) wanting more. In this book, she delivers that and so much more!

This book picks up after the release of the movie No Apologies and after the Academy Awards, Aaron and Greg are settling in to their shared home. Since Greg finally “came out” at the Academy Awards obviously their lives have changed. It was good to see that Aaron has helped Greg learn to deal with a lot of his anger and remains supportive in all ways.

When Aaron accepts an invitation for Greg to speak at their old high school alma mater, where their relationship started and where they suffered for it, Greg is not happy to say the least. But, he realizes that this is something they must do together. Taking them back to Lawson to confront their past is a brilliant move on Tibby’s part because so much of who they are today as men was shaped by the years they spent there. Because I don’t want to give too much away so, I’ll just say that while there they run into some people who bullied them in the past and things haven’t changed. When Greg is severely injured, this story takes on a whole new life and I can’t even begin to explain how gut wrenching and emotional these scenes are. One thing is for certain after this book, I have no doubt these two will forever be together.

In addition to Aaron and Greg, we are treated to a few moments with Jeremy and Kit from Acting Out. It was interesting to see Jeremy riding high on his new found fame and Kit struggling which just brings to light how fickle fame can be. I’m looking forward to see more of them in Out Takes. A student at Lawson, Scott, was introduced and made quite a statement. I hope to see more of his character as well.

Full Disclosure is a perfect addition to Tibby Armstrong’s Hollywood series. It was satisfying to finally get to see the real Aaron and Greg and watch their commitment to each other come full circle. Most of all she makes the point that tolerance, love and acceptance makes all the difference in the world and that’s a lesson everyone needs to learn.

You shouldn't miss this one. Review by Thommie
Quality
Oh my, what a book! I knew it, I knew Tibby would deliver yet another fantastic novel, but still, what a book! I don’t know where to begin and where to end. The protagonists, yes, Aaron and Greg. We met them through “No Apologies”, we saw glimpses of them on “Acting Out” and we see them bloom on “Full Disclosure”.
With their wedding approaching Aaron needs to see both himself and Greg letting go of the past and the shadows that still lurk in the corner. Both he and Greg decide to go back to the place where it all started, the place that held their best and worse memories of their life. Aaron in an attempt to reconcile his relationship with his family and Greg in a last attempt to let go his fears and darkness for his hatred Lawson. Ten years have passed and although a lot seemed to have changed the pair soon learned that a lot still remained the same, if not a tad more dangerous. Prejudice once again proved to be their worst enemy, an enemy making a strong attempt to take even Greg’s life.

This book highlights the scars and the trauma that is left from bullying so strongly it makes your hear tighten at the wrongness and the unfairness of it all. The emotions generated are strong and tug at your heart, making you want to swap at the ugliness and wipe it off of the face of the earth. The proverb “Live and let live” has constantly been present on my mind while reading this book. Is it so hard for people to do at least that? Tibby Armstrong makes quite the statement through her story and she doesn’t sugar coat it, no, rather let it slip bluntly through her text.

There are also those great moments in this book that makes your heartbeat go faster. Sensual, sexy and playful the sex between Aaron and Greg is almost painfully stimulating. Enwrapped in humor the light dominion/submission games are hard to resist and not dive in the feeling that the author so artfully created. The chemistry of these two characters is amazing, lacking no strength, sensuality or intimacy. It is deep and profound and you can sense it in every word and line. You can clearly see that, through their stupid display of sacrifice too. Greg, being the self-loathing bastard that he is, with that slight tendency toward self-destruction, nearly blows it all condemning both him and Aaron to misery. Yes, the display of how love makes us too blind to see the obvious isn’t missing from this story and although at times it seems that this won’t have a happy ending, one must be expected as this certain author has a love for happily ever after’s even through the darkest of the stories, which is the reason why I like her so much.

I do recommend this book to anyone who has even a slight tendency for romance. Even if you haven’t read the previous books you will enjoy it. The flashbacks to the past make it easy for someone that is reading this book as a standalone to understand the pair’s connection, their whole existence. You don’t feel the need to read the previous books in order to understand, rather to feel and live this great romance to its full extent.

So take a nice and long breath and make sure you have hours ahead of you because I can guarantee you will not put this down until it’s over. Enjoy!
