SLOW SHIFT by Nazarea Andrews
A Standalone Paranormal M/M Romance - Coming December 6!
One angry, grieving boy.
Chase DeWitt is fourteen when his mother dies and he stumbles into the woods beyond his home, angry and heartbroken. He didn’t know that it would change the course of his life.
Two broken, lonely men.
Tyler Reid is twenty three, grumpy and angry, trying to take care of a injured brother, and rebuilding a life blind hatred destroyed in one night. But he understands the boy who stumbles out of the woods and into his life, understands the grief in his eyes and the rage that makes him shake. And there is something in that familiar grief that makes Tyler trust Chase, when trusting humans has only ever lead to disaster.
And a falling down house they make a home.
As the summer passes and the years turn, Chase cares for Tyler’s brother, helps him rebuilding the house in the woods, as they help each other rebuild a life beyond the little house, Chase realizes two important things: these men matter to him, could be family. And they are not nearly as human as they seem.
He hears the sound of hammering before he reaches the house, and if it had been a slightly better day, he might have turned around at the sound of them, might have said nevermind, but his stomach aches and his face is throbbing from where a kid at school hit him, and he’s so angry he almost wants to fight with the dark haired scowly man.
He trudges forward with dogged determination.
The guy in the wheelchair is parked in the shade near a radio and a folding chair, a blanket tossed over his legs to keep him warm in the cool October air. The younger man—and Chase has decided Scowly Grump is younger—is on the roof ripping shingles off, banging around with dogged determination. Chase doesn’t think he’s actually getting much done, but keeps his mouth shut.
Chase watches for a second, and then Scowly Grump flicks a glance at him. “You,” he says, not surprised.
“Me,” Chase agrees sourly.
“This gonna be a regular thing?”
“Maybe,” Chase snaps.
The guy nods, his scowl deepening. “You got a name?”
He hesitates and then answers, “Chase.”
That earns him a hum of acknowledgement. “I’m Tyler. That’s my brother, Lucas.”
And then he goes back to work, seemingly uninterested in Chase at all, certainly not in the bruise blooming on his cheek. After he watches Tyler for a few minutes, Chase drags his bookbag around and starts his homework. He hears Tyler make another hum of approval from the roof.
When he’s finished his homework, he twitches, anxious and restless. He gets up and hesitates for a moment, expecting some dismissal from the roof, but when nothing comes, he grins to himself and sets about gathering the discarded shingles with real intent.
“You don’t have to do that,” Tyler calls from above him, sounding almost angry.
Chase shrugs and gathers up a few more shingles, tossing them into the back of the pickup with a grunt. “Might as well.”
Tyler falls quiet and then goes back to work, careful to avoid where Chase is picking up shingles when he tosses them down.
Later, when he climbs down from the roof, Chase collapses near Lucas, panting, and he grins a thank you when Tyler hands him an orange and a bottle of water.
“Gonna be dark soon,” Tyler says eventually.
Chase gives him sidelong look. “That you’re way of telling me to go home?”
Tyler nods and Chase blinks hard. He dusts his hands off and stands up.
“Are you coming back tomorrow?” Tyler asks. “I’m gonna keep working on the roof, then.”
Chase blinks at him again, then nods, a tiny pleased smile on his lips.
