❄️ Misadventures in Skiing

The grad student, the jock, and some winter fun…

Drew

My new job at the bistro is fun. The owners are good guys, and the staff is made up primarily of boisterous water polo players. I know nothing about the sport except there’s a Speedo involved, and Liam likes to wear his everywhere. Yes…Liam—the chatty, handsome, utterly charming waiter I can’t seem to stop thinking about. Ugh. Note to self—do not fall for another younger man.

Liam

Getting Drew to notice me hasn’t been easy. He’s a little intense, and he knows how to keep his distance. Something tells me he’s not immune—he’s just stubborn. Maybe a weekend of bonding on the ski slopes will win him over. And if I can get him to come out in winter, I might be able to convince him that we have a chance at something special.

Out in Winter is a low-angst MM, bisexual romance starring an oh so serious grad student, a goofball water polo player, and a little winter magic. This story is part of the Out in College series, but each book can be read as a stand-alone.

OUT IN WINTER and the Winter Wonderland Giveaway!

LEANING INTO SERIES-THE COMPLETE BOX SET is LIVE Now on Amazon KU!

The Leaning Into Series is a full-circle reading experience in that it begins and ends with the same couple. Eric and Zane start us off in back-to-back novellas, Leaning Into Love and Leaning Into Always.

The boys have known each other since middle school but didn’t become friends until college. Zane is a cool dude…a surfer turned elite sailor while Eric is the bookworm with a geeky side who started a successful tech company. They’re opposites in every way possible. But lately something feels different between them. And when they lean into love, they realize what they’d each been looking for had been there all along. Cue dreamy sigh…

A journey through the lives of their closest friends through stories of coming out, friends to lovers, second chances, and hurt and comfort leads us back to Eric and Zane in the short story, Leaning Into the Holidays as they embark on the ultimate adventure together…parenthood. And yes, there is a brand new spanking new chapter you won’t want to miss. So even if you’ve read all the books, be sure to check out the final installment to find out what happens!

It’s a thrill for me to be able to offer this entire collection, including four full-length novels, three novellas, and two previously unpublished short stories. That’s a grand total of over 430k words or 1,400 pages. That’s a lot of reading material! Since we’re officially in the season, I should note that there are two holiday stories in the set…Leaning Into a Wish and Leaning Into the Holidays.

The box set will be available for a limited time only on Amazon KU.

Happy Reading and Happy Holidays!

FREE SHORT STORY ALERT! Starting From Home- Part 1

Surprise!

Just a couple of days away! To get ready for the big day, I wrote a tiny two-part short story featuring Tegan and Declan (from Starting From Here) called Starting From Home.

This can be read as a stand-alone Emoji  I’ll post part 2 (NSFW) on Friday just in time for Starting From Somewhere! You can access Part 1 here.

The guitarist and the geek…

Bobby J-

What can I say? I’m a man of many tastes. I know what I like, and I’m not afraid to go for it. And I like the adorable geek from the bar. A lot. He’s smart and sassy…and he doesn’t seem to know or care that I’m in a hot up-and-coming band. However, I just found out he’s the new intern at Scratch Records. Uh-oh, this could get tricky.

Cody-

Confession…I’ve flubbed my mission. My quest is to research cool things and interesting people before I start my job as aerospace analyst—not fall for a rock star. My internship won’t last long if I can’t control this infatuation. Bobby J might look like a bear, but he’s fun and sweet and…oh boy, I think I’m in over my head. But maybe that’s not such a bad thing. After all, you’ve got to start somewhere.

Starting From Somewhere is a MM, bisexual romance with some rock and roll and a little nerdiness! Each book in the Starting From series can be read as a stand-alone.

 

STARTING FROM SOMEWHERE is One Week Away!

Yes! Just 7 days and counting till STARTING FROM SOMEWHERE is live!I can’t wait for you to meet Bobby J and Cody. The guitarist and the geek! I love opposites-attract stories and I have a soft spot for nerds. There’s something kind of special about finding common ground with someone who seems to come from a different world. Bobby J is a big mountain of a man who knows what he wants and is finally on the path to achieving his goals. And Cody is the younger brainiac who unwittingly gives fresh perspective with a dose of humor.

Preorder is LIVE now! Be sure to mark your Goodreads pages too!

Book 4 is a novella in the STARTING FROM SERIES, but can be read as a standalone. Look for a sexy short story info here next week, starring Tegan and Dec from Starting From Here!
