One of the things we occasionally do at work during lunch break is pass around our cell phones laughing hysterically at Pinterest fails. This got me thinking about some of the other epic failures in our lives and how we can now laugh at them. I’ve convinced a couple of my friends to expose their epic failures, all for your enjoyment.
Epic fail #1: So I was sixteen years old and working at the Six Flags amusement park as a ride operator. I had this complete and absolute crush on a co-worker. He was gorgeous, tall, blond, tan, and funny. All the qualities a teenager could ask for. So I overheard him talking about going to the Stone Temple Pilots concert with some friends. I was determined to get his attention. So I begged and pleaded with my dad to let me buy a ticket to the concert. Telling him of course that it was a bunch of girl friends who were going. Now at the time. I honestly couldn’t have told you one song STP sang. I was more of a classic rock girl, but the things we do for love are infinitely foolish.
So I got my ticket, and I even got my dad to agree to drop me off at the amphitheater saying I would catch a ride home from one of my friends. The object of my obsession, I mean affection, met me at the gate and said he was so glad I was able to join them. I of course was thrilled! The concert and underage drinking began. About halfway through I managed to convince my lovely co-worker to let me crash at his place since we both had to work the next day and he lived near the amusement park. He smiled, said sure no problem. Sweet! However after I managed to drunkenly weave my way back to our group after a restroom break I discovered my co-worker making out with a tall, leggy, equally gorgeous blond. Another guy from the group came up to me, put his arm around my shoulder and whispered, “I’m so glad Eric got you to agree to come tonight. I’ve been looking forward to our date all week.”
Epic Fail #2: So it’s one o’clock in the morning and time to hit the trailhead of Long’s Peak in Rocky Mountain National Park. Taking the Keyhole Route takes a good 10-15 hours for the 15 mile round trip climb to the 14,255 foot summit. Booking it up the trail in record time meant that this individual made it to the top in just under four hours. As he waited for the sun to rise it was time to answer the call of nature. However in his freezing, sleep and oxygen deprived brain he forgot it’s best not to piss Into the wind.
This is the newest addition to Totally Bound’s, Totally Five Star imprint.
Three very different men from three different countries look to build a love greater than any Wonder of the World.
Project manager Garrett Sloan builds majestic hotels for the rich and famous around the world, but when it comes to love, all his relationships seem to crumble. His latest project lands him in Istanbul, where the desire he’s held for a certain French architect heats up under the Middle Eastern sun, and his resolve never to mix business with pleasure melts beneath the added hot stare and skilled hands of a Turkish mason.
The three men discover they want to build a relationship to stand the test of time—much like Kyle LaFleure’s buildings and Emir Şahin’s stonework. As the bonds between Garrett and his partners grow stronger and more complex, they work to lay the perfect foundation on which to build a lasting relationship. Can the three men construct a relationship that will endure? Or will their love reach its zenith when their shared task of finishing the ultimate Ottoman luxury hotel reaches its completion?
Reader advisory: This book contains a scene of double penetration.
He leaned over and placed his lips against Garrett’s ear, making sure to brace his weight on his hands on either side of Kyle. “I’m going to fuck you, and you’re going to fuck Kyle.”
A soft whimper from beneath Garrett made Emir smile. Kyle lifted his knees until they rubbed the backside of Emir’s arms. He gave Kyle’s legs a caress as he moved back to his position behind Garrett. He couldn’t really reach much of his other lover, since Kyle was pinned beneath Garrett, but the two of them seemed to be getting along just fine. Emir pressed the tip of one finger inside Garrett. The man’s tight clench indicated that it had been some time since he’d had anything inside him. He pushed his finger deeper, and heard dual moans from the top of the bed.
Garrett pressed back against Emir and he knew his man was ready for more. One finger became two. Garrett growled as Emir stretched his channel, rubbing over Garrett’s gland in the process.
“Easy, mon cheri. We need to make sure you’re nice and open for him. You saw that monster between his legs. It was so heavy it couldn’t even stand up straight,” Kyle said while rubbing Garrett’s back. “Now me, I have a whole collection of toys I’ve been shoving up my ass, while fantasizing about the two of you. Just give me a little slick and we’ll get this beautiful cock where it belongs.”
Allah, for a man who made his living drawing complicated works of art, Kyle’s words had Emir thinking masterpiece. Emir reached between Garrett’s legs and rolled a condom down his length. The man’s flesh was tight and slick with evidence of his arousal. As per Kyle’s instructions, he applied some lube to Kyle’s hole, but gave the opening a quick check for compliance. He didn’t want anyone getting hurt in their eagerness. Emir squeezed a generous amount of lube out on his hand then wrapped it around Garrett’s cock, coating it in the cool gel.
“Bugger and blast!” Garrett gave a couple of quick hard thrusts in Emir’s grip, then looked down at Kyle, his breathing heavy. “How?”
“Like this. Want to see you.”

If you look up the word conundrum in the dictionary, there should be a photo of Trina Lane. Her personality is so multifaceted that her friends have spent countless hours scratching their heads in wonder. A scientist with a passion for history, music and photography she loves to travel and experience new places but is terminally shy around people she doesn’t know.
Trina has been devouring romance novels since her tender teenage years, although only began writing in 2007. When her debut novel was met with resounding success, she said “Hey I can do that again”. The rest as they say is history.
Her choices in reading and writing material are as diverse as her iTunes library, which contains music from Mozart to Metallica. Her one concession is all stories must have a happily ever after ending-did we mention she’s incurably romantic?
She lives in Missouri with her loving and indulgent husband, and orange tabby cat—affectionately referred to as ‘Houdini’ for his stealthy escape attempts.
