The streets didn't feel like his escape anymore, not like him. Cerulean skies gave way to pale blue eyes and bus routes to pink pouts. Evan didn't paint people until he painted Jackson.

Male/Male


Seth King - 2017
    All I did in the end was fall in love with him..." Talon Cooper is a struggling young writer who decides to enter the male/male, or gay romance, genre to expand his horizons. Alexander Mendes is an established gay fiction author who takes Talon under his (muscled) wing to introduce him to the vibrant LGBT+ world and ensure he approaches the subject respectfully. As two old friends get closer and long-repressed feelings start rising into the light, life starts imitating art in a way Talon never expected – because he is not just writing his first gay love story anymore. He is living it in real life. “All I wanted to do was write about Alexander and his world. All I wanted was to capture his unique magic and hope to do it some justice on the page – but now I have been taken prisoner by that magic. My muse has become my master, and I have no idea what to do about it…” *Warning: lately I have come across many “warning labels” accompanying books about two men who love each other. Consider this an un-warning label. The fact that these “warnings” exist at all is why I have dedicated my adult life to pushing diverse stories out into a world that is still so judgmental and puritanical, it requires disclaimers for stories containing love between two humans who do not happen to be male and female. To “warn” of something is to indicate that it is somehow wrong or shocking or taboo, and that mindset is frankly dangerous. We don’t need to be warned about love. In nations only a plane ride away, gay men are being rounded up and killed – please do not contribute to this notion that associates homosexuality with shame and scandal. Love is never wrong or shocking. It is just love.

    Jake’s sexy as hell and a firecracker in bed.

Feelings he’s denied for eight years, because Cris is his employee and therefore off limits—not to mention two decades younger than Charles. Cris admits he has feelings for Charles, too, but he’s still getting over Jake and both men agree nothing can happen between them while Charles is still Cris’s boss.Jake Bowden knows he doesn’t have anything to offer a guy. He’s a go-go dancer with no degree and no real career aspirations. He’s also used to everyone who loves him leaving, so it makes sense to cut Cris loose before things get too serious. Cris is kind, passionate and totally deserves a guy like Charles—wealthy, owns a home, successful businessman. Jake can’t compete so why bother? They’re better off together. But when Jake has a serious personal crisis, Cris and Charles unite to pull him back together, and the three men discover it’s possible—maybe even inevitable—to fall in love with more than one person at a time.
