It takes a wealth of collected experiences, emotions, successes and failures to craft the personality of a true Alpha Male.
Jack Gordon, real estate broker, licensed builder, Juris Doctorate, has had his fair share of strife. His ability to cope, to fall down and pick himself back up has lead him to a place where he believes he has it all. Friends, money, cars, more women than he can count, and a club in Detroit where he can exorcise his inner demons, fill his days and his nights.
When he walks up to a penthouse door on a hot Ann Arbor summer afternoon, frustrated, exasperated and ready to call it quits after hours of condo shopping with a wealthy couple, the last thing on his mind is meeting his destiny.
House Rules: The Jack Gordon Story. A prequel novella of the Stewart Realty Series. Recommended 18+
Détente existed once more between Jack and his father, although Jack could hardly look at the man without remembering his words, what he said about Mindy, the woman he’d paid to fuck his own son.
A soft hand on his arm startled him. He turned, smiled, and accepted the cup the blonde girl held out.
“Thanks, gorgeous.” He leaned into her. “What a scene, huh?” He sipped, not looking at her but sensing her gaze on him. He knew he looked great. Between the pure physical labor he put in daily on the job sites, lugging drywall, holding up trusses, hammering, and carrying every manner of tools around, he also ran every morning without fail, and did three hundred sit-ups and push-ups no matter how tired he was. The routine of it soothed him, helped him forget, for a moment, his fucked-up family life and that he had but a few more weeks before he could escape to college.
Worry about leaving his sister behind tickled at his conscience but Mo seemed at ease with her relationship with their father for now. She was a tough cookie and had a solid set of friends around.
The discipline Jack imposed on himself felt great. The punishing exercise coupled with the long hours of work and determined study so he could achieve beyond what his asshole father expected of him centered him, gave him purpose. Well, that and what he was about to do with the lovely female now under his arm, giggling and running her hand up his thigh.
He tugged her inside, down to the basement, needing a connection so badly his teeth ached. She sighed as he eased her down on the couch, kissing her gently but with purpose, increasing his pressure slowly as his cock sprang to attention under his swim trunks.
“Mmm…this feels promising,” she declared, reaching into his shorts.
He smiled into her mouth. He’d found one with a little experience—a pleasant change of pace. She brushed her thumb across his head, making him shiver. “Hope you’re prepared, big boy,” the girl said with a touch of awe in her voice when she looked down at what she had in her hand.
Jack sighed and leaned over to snag a condom from the supply he kept in the drawer of a rarely-used table in the corner. “Like a Boy Scout, sweetheart,” he said, handing it to her.
She grinned and stood, slipping out of her barely-there bikini and standing in front of him in all her curvy glory. He licked his lips, sat up, and yanked her hips close so he could bury his face between her legs. She gripped his hair then pushed back, forcing him to flop over onto the couch so she could straddle his face.
He groaned and flicked at the tender button of flesh. He loved pussy, loved looking at it, licking it, watching it come to life under his careful attention. The girl was moist, her folds were soft, and she tasted like the sweetest honey.
He sucked her clit, slid a finger inside, and moaned as she gripped him hard. The knee-jerk girls were the best, he had discovered. They came fast and typically had no clue that they were among the rarest of women—the multi-orgasmic—and his favorite.
He looked up, watched her cup her own breasts and tug her nipples. Perfect, just perfect. He reached in at an angle, seeking that bundle of nerves most women possessed, right behind her pubic bone.
“Jesus,” he yelped, nearly coming out of his skin when a soft set of lips encircled his dick and a finger traced down his balls and lower. “Baby, I didn’t know this was gonna be a party,” he whispered.
The girl looked down at him and smiled, angling her hips so he kept going as the other girl sucked his cock like a pro, until he couldn’t hold back another minute. The girl on his face came again too, completing the moment. The other girl still palming his balls moaned and jerked forward again, and again. Girl number one climbed off him, and Jack put his arms under his head and watched girl number two get fucked by his friend from behind. “Nice,” he said, admiring the way her tits bounced.
“Her idea,” Brandis ground out then closed his eyes and pounded harder. Jack reached down to fondle girl number two’s clit, making her eyes fly open at the last minute. Her lips were so full. He had to kiss them. So he did, and all was well for everyone in the room

What You Will Love About Jack
By Liz Crowe
House Rules is a prequel that I wrote as I was just getting started on the final novel of my epic, top selling and award winning Stewart Realty series. And I do mean the “final novel.” Good Faith will give every reader a bit of “full circle” that I think will make the ending, when it comes, not quite so hard to take.
But as I was coming up with a way to allow my characters to not only age, but to experience all that goes with trying to guide precocious youngsters through precarious young-adulthood, I realized that Jack, the main character throughout the series, had been done a disservice. I had not allowed him to share his entire back story with current and future fans.
He’s been through a fair bit to get him to the place he is in his mid-thirties when you first meet him at the beginning of Floor Time, which is book one of the series. The first 3 books (Floor Time/Sweat Equity/Closing Costs) are the “Jack and Sara trilogy” and comprise the foundation for the rest of the secondary characters and their stories. Mutual Release is the 7th book and could easily be read as a stand alone and would allow you a glimpse into Jack, as friend of Evan in law school and beyond. But to really get to know the guy, you gotta read those first three books.
Jack is, of course, the quintessential Alpha Hero in many ways. He has the looks and the outward demeanor of a winner. He is wildly successful at pretty much everything he does: his real estate career, running his father’s construction company, and, of course, wooing and bedding a whole host of eager women. As we say, “he has a black book men envy.” He is, however, seeking something although he doesn’t even realize it until he finds it. And that inner vulnerability is what many readers have latched onto, and what they enjoy about him in the first 3 books. He is a jerk, a real a**hole many times, but the woman he meets in the first pages of Floor Time (and the last pages of House Rules) is his match on many levels, including the “reader frustration” one – as in I have readers who make no bones about hating her guts for a while, until they learn to love her.
Jack is loyal. If he is your friend, he will do anything for you anytime. He’s committed to the happiness of the people he loves and makes no bones about liking to shower his woman with gifts although, at times, they are not-so-well-received. Jack has an irreverent sense of humor, a thoroughly dirty mind and is, as we say, a sexual Dominant. But I let him grow through this to become the mature husband and father he so very much wants to be—but not without bumps in his personal road.
I hope that, if you are a current fan, you will love Jack’s back story. And if you are new to this series that you will come of love Jack Gordon as the rest of us do!
