Sleepwalking…in fiction and in real life, by Devon Rhodes

May 9, 2010

They say write what you know, and thus my short story in the Necking anthology, Neighbors By Day, Naughty By Night, was launched. It’s amazing what the subconscious can do, and I brought a lot of my own past experiences with sleepwalking into my story. Some readers may think: there’s no way someone could do that while asleep, but I’m living proof…check it out and decide for yourself!

Here is the blurb and an excerpt. Enjoy!

Normally, finding the hot neighbor in bed with your boyfriend would be the end, not the beginning, of a wonderful relationship.

Jason wakes up to find Marty in their bed, and it makes him wonder whether he’s made a big mistake in committing to Kevin. Marty’s mortified; he’s loved Jason from afar for years, but never had the courage to act on it. And Kevin is plotting something naughty that will give all three men what they’ve wanted all along….


Dawn gave way to morning, gradually and imperceptibly lightening the room. Jason rolled blindly toward still-sleeping Kevin to spoon up behind him, pressing his morning wood up against that perfect, unbelievably rounded ass as he ran a hand slowly down Kevin’s smooth flank. Kevin shifted in his sleep, mumbling something incoherent, arching back against Jason with a sexy subconscious rub. Jason stifled a groan as the counter-pressure had him bucking forward, his lassitude instantly evaporating. Feeling a slight prick of guilt for waking his night owl partner so early, he justified the green light to himself: since it was the weekend, they could go back to sleep afterwards.

He slid his hand around to search for Kevin’s cock. But instead of that gorgeous, stiff prick he was expecting to find, his hand hit….

Jason’s eyes flew open as adrenaline jolted through him.

Another ass?

What the fuck?



His name being hissed urgently and way too loudly in his ear brought Kevin swimming up into a semblance of awareness.

He attempted to respond but only managed to make a slightly inquiring noise buried in the back of his throat.

He must’ve drifted right back to sleep again, because an increasingly pissed sounding, “Kevin, wake the fuck up right now,” speared through an amazingly vivid dream he couldnt quite remember, something about a truck….

“Kev, the phone. If we go skiing…”

“Mmm hmm. Go to sleep, Marty.”


Marty wiggled and settled back into sleep in front of him, but behind him, Jase wasn’t being nearly as cooperative, puffing and panting like the bull on that Bugs Bunny matador episode, and sending off palpable waves of upset. He really needed to relax. Chill out, babe. Sleeping here.

Jason’s voice was taut as a bow string. “Chill out?” Oops, must’ve said that out loud. Jason’s next whisper was just this side of a shout. “What is Marty doing in our bed?”

“Sleeping.” Duh. Kevin had a dreamy smile curving his lips, thoroughly enjoying finally being the melty stuff in the middle of a Marty/Jason sandwich. Seriously hot thought, that. Marty should put it on the menu, it’d be an instant best-seller. If only Jase would just settle down and let him savor it….

“Okay, that’s it.”

Tidal waves of jerky movement behind him finally brought Kevin up to speed. Oh shit, I forgot to warn him. “Jase, babe. Shoot.” He scrambled to get the necessary information across. “I forgot to tell you.”

“Tell me what?” Jase was already yanking on discarded jeans from last night, forgoing the whispers as he continued at normal volume. “I can’t wait to hear this one.”

“Shhh!” Kevin stage-whispered. “You’ll wake him up.”

Jason froze with his pants just below his crotch, and his jaw literally dropped. It wouldve been a comical look on him if Kevin didn’t know how upset Jase was right now. Mental snapshot for later. He could see how damning it looked to have Marty in their bed, but it was a truly blameless situation.

“You did not just tell me to shhh…”
