Genj is a cinnamon roll alpha. Even as one of the circuit’s best space racers, he’s shy and rather clumsy. Not qualities anyone wants in a mate, especially the omega he’s crushed on for years. But when Genj invites Utahn on a whim to visit him for a weekend, the omega agrees.
Utahn never expected his best friend’s older brother to reciprocate his feelings. Genj is a space racer, and everyone in the universe knows they rarely commit. When the two get together, sparks fly. And what once seemed impossible becomes a dream come true.
But situations change. And past relationships have a way of interfering with new ones. Can Genj and Utahn work through past traumas, or were they never meant to be more than a childhood crush?
“How was the trip here?” I hoped small talk would help ease some of the awkwardness. I didn’t want the entire weekend to be like this.
“It was good.” He shrugged. “Pretty boring, really. The Olarian beside me slept the whole time, but I couldn’t. I was too anxious, I guess.”
“Were you afraid something would happen on the flight?” Because why else would he be anxious? He’d flown on the spacecraft many times before.
Utahn nudged his shoulder against mine. “No, I was anxious to see you. I like you, and I really want this weekend to go well.”
“I want it to go well, too.” My cheeks warmed, along with my groin. He’d finally admitted something my younger brother had told me a while ago. The guy I’d been crushing on for most of my life liked me, too. But did he mean as more than a friend? Or was I getting too far ahead of myself?
After finding Utahn’s case, we caught a hovercab to the hotel where I’d made reservations for him. It wasn’t too far from my dorm and had many amenities for when he needed time away from me.
I carried his case inside and stayed in the lobby to make sure he checked in okay. The concern etched in the wrinkles around the nose of the Eureblian front desk clerk, and the way their spines rose on the top of their head had me worried. I leaned on the desk. “Is there a problem?”
“Um…” They chewed on their top lip as they tapped several buttons on the screen in front of them. “It seems your room was double-booked, and there are no more vacancies left this weekend.” They wiped their forehead with one of their tentacles. “I can call around and see if there are rooms available at other hotels.”
My stomach sank. “I don’t get how this could happen.” How could they double-book a room and not notice until now? And why did it have to happen to us? “Yes, please find another room.”
“No.” Utahn pulled me away from the desk. “Don’t worry about it. I’ll simply—”
“I don’t want you to return to Orez already. You just got here.”
“No.” Utahn chuckled as he cupped my elbow in his palm. “I thought maybe I could stay at your dorm. You can find room for me, right?”
My tongue felt heavy in my mouth. I couldn’t talk, couldn’t respond, and couldn’t understand why Utahn would want to spend his weekend in a smelly dorm. I’m sure Vawn had warned him about the place.
Utahn took a step forward, reducing the space between us, along with the air in my lungs. “I’m sure you have a couch I can sleep on.”
“No. No couch.” Wait, what was I saying? “I mean, I’ll sleep on the couch. You can sleep in my room.” It was cleaner than the common area. I took pride in keeping my room tidy. And that way he’d have some privacy. I never knew what state of dress my teammates would be in when leaving their quarters. Especially Ret. Our omega teammate, Ilam, didn’t seem bothered by my older brother, but I couldn’t do that to Utahn.
“Whatever.” He winked then stepped away from me. “Let’s go to your dorm.”
Pulling his case along again, I followed him out the door and down the street. He didn’t stop to let me catch up but kept marching with determination. I didn’t understand why he wasn’t upset by the situation.
At the main door to my dorm, I waved my wrist in front of the scanner lock. Once inside, we took the lift to the third floor. The whole time, I tried not to think about what it would be like to have Utahn in my bed. Even if I wasn’t in it. Did he sleep naked? Oh stars, I didn’t know how I was going to sleep with that image in my head.
