As told by me. So, take that as you will.
Still available at Dreamspinner Press and I hope to have third-party links soon.
There’s been a bit of question about the cover….mostly, hot guy but what’s with the colour? I wanted something that conveyed Jake’s world changing, pulling him out of the greys and into a vibrant, colourful world. Dallas walks with him as Jake makes that emotional journey, and that’s pretty much what the book is about.
So, watch for it on March 17, 2017! And I’ll let you all know if it goes on sale at any time between then and now.
There’s This Guy
How do you save a drowning man when that drowning man is you?
Jake Moore’s world fits too tightly around him. Every penny he makes as a welder goes to care for his dying father, an abusive, controlling man who’s the only family Jake has left. Because of a promise to his dead mother, Jake resists his desire for other men, but it leaves him consumed by darkness.
It takes all of Dallas Yates’s imagination to see the possibilities in the fatigued art deco building on WeHo’s outskirts, but what seals the deal is a shy smile from the handsome metal worker across the street. Their friendship deepens while Dallas peels back the hardened layers strangling Jake’s soul. It’s easy to love the sweet, artistic man hidden behind Jake’s shattered exterior, but Dallas knows Jake needs to first learn to love himself.
When Jake’s world crumbles, he reaches for Dallas, the man he’s learned to lean on. It’s only a matter of time before he’s left to drift in a life he never wanted to lead and while he wants more, Jake’s past haunts him, making him doubt he’s worth the love Dallas is so desperate to give him.
