Dads of Stillwater, Book 1

One artist. One attorney. Two single dads.

Meeting at a bachelor auction for charity had trouble written all over it as far as I was concerned, especially when the guy that won the bid for me seemed to be after only one thing…a good time between the sheets.

Refusing Fletcher’s advances was easy the first time round. After all, we weren’t meant to see each other again.

Except I’ve just moved to Stillwater where Fletcher lives. Except both our kids are in the same class.

Now the kids are fighting and I’m ready to throw my own punches. If only Fletcher wasn’t as goddamn irresistible as he is irritating.

When the fight moves from the playground to the bedroom, who will come out on top?

Antagonist is book 1 in Ana Ashley’s new series, Dads of Stillwater. Single dads, sassy kids, Ana’s usual cast of intriguing secondary characters, Stillwater has it all.

“What the fuck is your problem?” he asks in an attempted whisper. “What do you mean?” It’s impossible to not look at him because he’s so close I can smell his cologne. Why does he smell so good when he looks like he’s just had a round in the paint section at the DIY store? He lets out a breath and runs his hands over his long hair. The gesture shouldn’t do anything for me, but fuck, it does. Fucking good-looking bastard. “Look, it’s clear the kids have some lessons to learn. Can you not put aside our differences and focus on them?” Great, and now I feel like a dick. “I’m sorry. I wasn’t expecting to see you again.” It’s the honest truth. Somehow he brings out the worst in me, but I can’t stop staring at his eyes and wondering what would have happened if I’d said yes to a date. That’s in the past. I’m angry with myself for even having these thoughts, but he’s right. We need to focus on the kids. “I wasn’t expecting to see you again either, Harrison. Or find out you’re married. But here we are.” “What?” “What. What?” “I’m not married,” I say. His smile changes in a heartbeat. “You’re not?” I shake my head. “I was at a bachelor auction. You do know the definition of a bachelor.” “You said your friend put you up to it.” “Why are we talking about this?” I ask. He takes a slow step back. “It doesn’t matter. Can I have your number?” he asks. He must see my confusion because he adds. “So we can arrange a playdate for the kids.” “Oh, right. Yeah, of course.” I pull out my phone and unlock it, giving it to him. He puts his number in and then calls his own cell. His finger brushes mine when hands me the phone back. Little hairs on the back of my neck stand to attention…and not in a bad way. Why do I feel like trouble is around the corner?

Forever After Cover

Finding Forever, Book 3

After a fire destroys his apartment, Diego has no choice but to move in with the person least likely to welcome him with open arms: Alex, the recently divorced, presumably straight guy who didn’t take kindly to Diego hitting on him at a friend’s wedding.

Unfortunately, Alex can’t exactly complain about the living arrangements. After his wife cheated, he moved across the country to San Francisco to start over. The place he’s living belongs to a friend, so when Jake also offers Diego a room, Alex needs to figure out how to deal with the exceptionally hot, sex-positive, queer youth counselor whose gaydar has picked up that Alex isn’t as straight as everyone thinks he is.

Forced to live in the same house, Alex and Diego are about as combustible as fire and gasoline. But when Alex’s thirteen-year-old comes out as trans masc and moves into the house with them, Alex begins to see another side of Diego, and Diego realizes this sullen, complicated man has a heart of gold that’s been stomped on a few too many times.

Once the walls start to come down, Alex and Diego realize they have a lot in common. Not to mention an attraction that blazes hotter the more they get to know each other.

Forever After is an enemies-to-lovers, forced proximity, bi-awakening story. It is Book Three in the Finding Forever series but can be read as a stand-alone novel.

“What the fuck are you doing?”

Diego spun, knife clenched in one hand, the tube of biscuits in the other, to find Alex glaring at him from the kitchen doorway. “What does it look like? I’m cooking.”

Alex strode into the room and took the knife from his hand, then almost lovingly slid it into the knife block before turning to face Diego. “One, don’t use my knives if you can’t handle them properly. Two, don’t ever, ever use the point of a knife to open something. And three, what the fuck are those things?” He pointed to the tube Diego still clutched in his hand.

“I told you, I’m cooking.”

“You are not cooking because that is not food.”

Diego shook his head in exasperation. “Dude. What is wrong with you?” He turned and rustled a butter knife out of the silverware drawer. “I assume you’re okay with me using this?”

“I’m not okay with what you’re planning on eating. That stuff is horrible.” Alex held out his hand, and Diego just stared at it, then raised his eyes to meet Alex’s gaze.

“You can’t be serious.”

“Yeah. I am. Do you even know what’s in this shit? Give it to me.”

With another head shake, Diego turned his back to Alex and resumed his attempts to open the tube. “I don’t know what your problem is, dude, but leave me out of it. I’ll clean up the kitchen after…what the hell?” Diego clamped his hand around the tube just as Alex tried to grab it off the counter. He spun around, glaring at Alex, who was holding on to one side of the tube. Mierda! Was this guy for real?

“Look,” Alex said. He extended a finger without letting go and pointed to the ingredients list, which Diego knew was full of preservatives and artificial flavors, but, at the moment, he couldn’t care less. Alex was being an ass. Again. And Diego’s temper was up. He’d die on this biscuit hill, if he had to.

“So what?”

“When I make biscuits it’s flour, salt, baking powder, butter, and milk. That’s it.”

“These take fifteen minutes to make.” Diego tugged on the tube without success. “And I’m hungry.”

“I can make them from scratch in under twenty.”

Diego tugged on the tube again, but Alex wasn’t letting go. With a growl, Diego tightened his grip, and gave a yank. For a moment, he had Alex off balance, but then Alex found his feet and pulled back. They held for a moment, the tension they both exerted and their full weight equal as they glared at each other over the metallic blue tube. Alex’s eyes glinted, and the corners of his mouth turned up. Diego was struck by how gorgeous the man was, especially as anger colored his cheeks. When Alex narrowed his eyes and then licked his lips, Diego nearly groaned with frustration that all this physical perfection was wasted on such an arrogant cabrón.

“Give me the tube,” Alex said.

“No. If you want to make biscuits, go ahead. I won’t stop you.”

With a huff of air, Alex’s expression turned stony and he shifted on his feet, but Diego was ready. You didn’t grow up the youngest of five siblings and not know how to anticipate when someone was going to try and sweep your feet out from beneath you, which is exactly what Alex did. Diego sidestepped, pulling backward with his full weight. For a split second, everything was fine, and then the tube split as the pressurized contents expanded and the cardboard unraveled around the seam.

Book 1: A Kind of Forever


Ry and Cart were inseparable in college: two innocent kids in love who thought they could take on the world. But when a photograph of the two of them at an LGBTQ protest outed Ry to his conservative family, his parents forced him to leave college and convinced Cart their relationship was something Ry regretted.

Twelve years later, they’re given a second chance.

Since they last saw each other, Cart has moved on. Sort of. He relocated to San Francisco, became a human-rights lawyer, and fell in love again and got married, only to lose his husband to cancer. Still reeling from the loss, he’s devoted himself to the struggling LGBTQ youth center his late husband founded. Then Ry joins the law firm where Cart works. The moment they see each other, Cart can tell Ry’s changed. Gone is the sensuous and enthusiastic lover Cart remembers, and in his place is a man who looks at Cart with disgust. The last thing Cart needs is having to figure out what’s going on with his former lover, but he can’t ignore the strong emotions resurfacing between them.

When Ry returned to his hometown of San Francisco, he knew being near his parents again was going to be a challenge. For twelve years, they’ve been manipulating him with threats of being disinherited and losing his trust fund. It worked when he was younger, getting him to leave college and agree to conversion therapy in the hopes of getting away and returning to Cart. But the camp caused him so much trauma, he can’t even look at another man without experiencing a panic attack. Now his goal is to beat his parents at their own game by pretending to be the dutiful, straight son they want. Two more years, and he’ll succeed. Then he sees Cart again and realizes what really matters to him. He just needs to find a way for Cart to realize it too.

Trigger Warnings: This book contains references to attempted suicide, conversion therapy, depression, and self-harm, as well as depictions of PTSD and panic attacks.

Book 2: Nothing Like Forever


Jake and Micah met at eighteen and formed a deep connection the instant they saw each other. That was the easy part.

Nothing Like Forever is a soul mates-to-partners, can’t-live-with-him/can’t-live-without-him unconventional love story in which Jake doesn’t want romance or a happily-ever-after, and Micah wants it all. With Jake. For twenty years they’ve been in and out of each other’s lives trying to get it right. They fail, retreat, disappear from each other’s lives for years at a time, and then fate (or a friend’s wedding) brings them back together for another attempt at making it work. Their connection always runs deep, but no matter what it takes for them to stay together, one thing’s certain: these guys have a unique path to finding their HEA, and when they get there, it might not look the way either of them expect.

This novel is about learning what you can and can’t expect from your partner and what you can and can’t accept for yourself in a relationship, what lines you’re willing to cross, what compromises you’re willing to make, and where you have to stay true to who you are no matter how you feel about the other person. It features an aromantic MC and a guaranteed HEA that’s as unique as these two men and the journey it takes them to find forever.

Trigger warning: this novel has mentions of alcoholism and dementia. It also features MCs who are consensually non-monogamous, but there are no on-page depictions of Jake and Micah with anyone except each other.

Sawyer and Royce: Matrimony and Mayhem, Book 2

Spring is in full bloom, love is in the air, and Cupid has taken deadly aim in Savannah.

Newly engaged, Royce Locke and Sawyer Key are ready to set the date and charge full-steam ahead into their happily ever after, but homicides and unresolved conflicts keep getting in their way. Neither detective has met a case they couldn’t solve, but their latest investigations will push their limits and challenge their faith when the line between friend and foe becomes blurred. And if that weren’t enough, a random encounter with a stranger will trigger a series of events that could either make or break the couple.

Love—often a thriller, sometimes a killer, but always worth the battle.

Marriage is Murder is book two in the Matrimony and Mayhem trilogy, the second story arc for Royce Locke and Sawyer Key. ** New readers should start with the Zero Hour trilogy before reading Matrimony and Mayhem. ** Marriage is Murder is a continuation of Royce and Sawyer’s happily ever after as they move into the next phase of their lives—professionally and personally. Though some storylines span the trilogy, this book does not end in a cliffhanger. Heat, humor, heart, and homicide abound. You have been warned. 18+

“I hate to interrupt a master at work…” Sawyer said hesitantly.

Royce responded with a grunt. “Almost there. Just trying to fit it in the hole. It requires finesse, not brute strength, you know.” Another grunt echoed from behind the dryer and a savage curse quickly followed.

Sawyer bit back a chuckle as he stared down at the superb, jean-clad ass sticking up in the air. Royce had somehow managed to wedge himself under the laundry room sink to reach the back of the dryer. “You don’t say,” Sawyer remarked casually.

He glanced over at Bones, who sat on top of the washing machine looking mighty pissed Royce had moved his litter box from its usual spot to reattach the dryer hose to the exterior vent. The metal ring securing it had broken at some point, which Royce had discovered when he’d attempted to clean the vent with the new shop vac he’d purchased that morning on his weekly hardware store run. They had a Saturday morning routine that started with rambunctious sex, followed by a hearty breakfast, and ended with Royce finding some excuse to visit Sal’s while Sawyer worked on newspaper puzzles and listened to audiobooks.

Royce’s most recent mission was to assemble a tool kit for when Dru and the boys moved into their new place the following weekend. He’d come home from Sal’s flushed with excitement because he’d put together a kickass toolbox and found a high-powered shop vac to rival all others. Royce enthusiastically extolled all the vacuum’s features and boasted it had the strongest suction power on the market. He’d unboxed the shop vac like a little kid on Christmas morning. Sawyer had found it quite endearing until Royce had gazed at the chrome and red machine like it was the most beautiful thing in the world. He’d felt a momentary pang of jealousy until he recalled where he’d been in his audiobook before Royce had come bounding through the door with his new toy.

Royce had kissed him passionately before wheeling the assembled beast into the garage to test it out. Moments later, the loud whirring sound of the machine came through the door. Bones had darted for safety while Sawyer pushed Play to resume his book and returned his attention to his crossword puzzle.

Sawyer smiled when he’d read the next clue. The absence of matter. “Six letters. Gee, I wonder what it could be.” He filled in the boxes with vacuum and moved on to the next clue.

“When was the last time you cleaned out the dryer vent?” Royce had asked Sawyer after he’d cleaned both vehicles.

Sawyer rolled his eyes toward the ceiling as if he were thinking hard about the answer.

Royce had laughed, seeing through Sawyer’s antics, and said, “Doesn’t matter. I’ll take care of it now.”

“We’re supposed to meet my mom for lunch at the Hummingbird Café in an hour,” Sawyer had reminded him.

“No problem.”

Famous last words.

Narrated by Amanda Meuwissen

Daren Montgomery is a fisherman in his small hometown off Nova Scotia. His heart is as empty as the waters in winter—until he meets Lilo, a beautiful creature of the ocean depths that Daren never believed could be real. Their courtship may be a fairy tale, but the gentle curl of a tentacle or wet kiss in magically warm waters has him dreaming of summer and a storybook ending.

Falling backwards onto the deck, Daren nearly lost the net completely. Seeing a head floating in the water was not a calming experience.

He slowly stood, wondering what poor soul had drowned out here, only to realize the eyes looking back at him were blinking.

“Are you okay?” Daren called. “Are you lost? You’re not swimming in that water?”

The head bobbed higher, revealing the tops of bare shoulders. The man was beautiful, even if Daren had to wonder about his sanity. His skin had a bluish-purple tint to it, so he had to be freezing, but he was still gorgeous, with eyes so dark, they looked black, and short black hair plastered to his forehead and around what appeared to be slightly pointed ears.

He almost looked like a pixie, or an elf, or…


“Hello?” Daren tried again before he could allow that thought to enter his mind. Maybe he’d been out here too long on his own and was starting to see things, because he couldn’t possibly be looking at a… mermaid?

Well, merman.

The beautiful head dove back under the water, and the next thought Daren had was that whether this was man or sea creature, he might be about to capsize Daren’s boat. Only, before Daren could think to react or even move, with his hands still clutching his net that was only half pulled up onto the deck, the rest of the net and all the fish in it pushed up as if by itself and spilled at his feet.

Daren blinked.

The next moment, the man’s beautiful face peered at him from over the side of the boat.

“Uh… thanks.” Daren dropped his hold on the net, unsure what to do. “You’re not… gonna drag me to a watery grave now, are you?”

The man’s—merman’s—eyes really were black with hardly any whites and no discernable pupils. His skin was bluish-purple, his ears were pointed, and when he tilted his head and smiled at Daren, his mouth was full of dangerously sharp teeth.

He disappeared beneath the water again.

Daren was being toyed with, and soon, the merman would capsize his boat. But, as he waited, once again, that didn’t happen.

A fish popped up out of the water and landed right in the boat.

Then another joined the first. And another. And another. In minutes, Daren had two-dozen more fish than what had been in his net, and he had to cry out to the water, “Stop! My boat can’t take much more! This is plenty!”

He couldn’t be sure if the merman understood him, but the head popped up again with another curious tilt.

“This is plenty,” Daren said again, gesturing at the fish, and then held out both hands in a stopping gesture.

The merman smiled like before, and though his teeth should have made it a frightening image, he was truly stunning. He didn’t want to capsize Daren. He was trying to help. Maybe he was why Daren had caught so many fish yesterday.

“Thank you,” Daren said. He had more than enough to return to shore for the day. “I’m, um…” He placed a hand on his chest. “Daren.” Then he gestured at his guest.

The merman’s brow scrunched.

Why would Daren even think a sea creature could speak, let alone understand English? He tried again anyway, patting his chest. “Daren.” Then he gestured at the merman again.

Hands came up to rest on the side of the boat, and Daren could see that the fingers were webbed. The merman used the leverage to lift out of the water enough to press one of his hands to his chest where Daren could see it.

“Liloki,” he said, and it was a strange voice, both low and higher pitched at once that Daren imagined could be understood even underwater.

“Liloki,” Daren repeated. “Kinda makes me think of Lilo and Stitch.” He chuckled.

“Lilo.” Liloki nodded, patting his chest again, as if to say Daren could call him that, or it was a nickname he was already used to.

“Lilo,” Daren said.

“Daren,” Lilo said back to him.

“Thank you for the fish,” Daren said again, pointing at the catch.

Lilo smiled wider, so Daren thought he understood.

Love in the Pacific Northwest, Book 2


After a nasty breakup with my manipulative ex, I returned home to Seattle to lick my wounds. I’m done with relationships. From now on I’m focusing on my career.

There are just a few problems with this.

One, it’s not that easy for a Deaf man to succeed in a Hearing world, even with the right degree and experience.

Two, Quinn MacDougall. He’s my co-worker. He’s also incredibly talented, driven, and distractingly handsome.

Three, he’s hearing. And that’s the biggest problem of all. Can someone who isn’t Deaf ever truly understand and accept me?



Nothing is more important to me than family, and someday I’ll have my own. Well, I will, If I can ever find the right guy. Sadly, I can’t seem to make family and romance mesh. So for now, I’m concentrating on my career and getting a promotion at work. That is until my company hires a hot-shot architect with all the right credentials to easily snag the position.

I should resent him, but Tadhg Byrne is supremely talented and incredibly sweet. He’s also drop-dead gorgeous. And even though we have a ton in common I can’t ask him out. Why? We work together, and that’s just a disaster waiting to happen.

Plus, there’s the communication issue. He’s Deaf, my ASL is rusty as hell, and he’s just been through a really bad breakup. How could I possibly convince him to take a chance again with me?

To say it had surprised me to see the hot guy from the coffee shop at my new job is an understatement. Quinn. His name is Quinn. And he’s adorable. Wait, no. He isn’t adorable. The way he’d concentrated on signing had been adorable. Okay, not adorable. It had been nice. Or fine, even. Yeah, definitely just fine. And there’s nothing wrong with professional interest. Which obviously is all this is. My heart is racing because of first-day nerves. That’s totally understandable and has nothing to do with the almost frightening level of attraction I’m feeling. Fuck. Fuck fuck fuck. Fine. He’s attractive. But under no circumstances will I do anything about it. I don’t need that complication. No hookups, no dating, no relationship. I’m fine just as things are. Plus Quinn doesn’t know ASL. Okay, he seems to know the basics, but I have no interest in playing instructor. Not with ASL, anyway. Wait! Jesus, what is wrong with me? Even thinking about that with a coworker, especially one I just met, is supremely stupid. I watch Quinn leave and remind myself he’s a distraction, no matter how hot he is. But damn, Quinn MacDougall is very hot. In fact, he ticks all my boxes. Tall? Check. He’s at least six-feet. Blue eyes? Check. They are a beautiful deep blue, and I could lose myself in their velvety depths. Even his dark red hair and smattering of freckles work for me. And Fit? Dear god, check. Quinn has the broad chest, back, and seriously wide shoulders of a swimmer. I’ll bet he’s a breaststroke man. I very purposely do not imagine him in a competition speedo. Walking around the office with a hard-on would not be a good idea.

Forever, Con Amor
By A.M. Johnson


For Him, Book 4


I never in a million years thought I would want a guy who smells like a tree and probably hugs them on the daily, but alas, you’ve somehow snuck your sexy, khaki-covered ass into my life. It doesn’t help that we’re stuck living in this apartment together for God knows how long, but I can’t stop thinking about that kiss. I know I said it was one and done, and maybe that’s the smart thing to do since I’m not convinced of your emotional availability. Maybe I’m a masochist. Or, maybe I might kind of like you. I said what I said.

No regrets, Marcos~



Your ability to simultaneously compliment and insult me is probably one of my favorite things about you. I think it’s part of your charm. Does that make me a masochist as well? I definitely like to torture myself. The night I kissed you, I knew it had the potential to push you away, but I couldn’t stop myself from wanting you. I still can’t. You can flirt and bully me all you like. I’m not going anywhere. I’ve finally found my home, and it’s here. And just in case you need me to be more specific, I like you too.

Forever, con amor…

FCA 1 Teaser 3


I scrolled through the app feed, looking at pictures of well-placed books, and poses, and puckered, bored expressions. Why were all my friends so pretentious? I flipped to my profile. God, why was I so pretentious? I snapped a quick selfie and stared at it. My dark curls were wayward at best, my face was makeup free, the bridge of freckles, marching over my nose were on full display. I looked like shit. Hungover and tired. I didn’t think a twenty-four-year-old was supposed to look haggard.

“No more booze,” I whispered to myself and posted the picture to my feed with the hashtags late night and worth it.

The last one was a lie. The club scene, as fun as it could be, had started to wear out its welcome. I set my phone on the mattress and got out of bed. My bones ached as I stretched them over my head and yawned. Definitely not worth it. Swearing when I caught a look at the clock on the nightstand, I rummaged through my closet faster than I liked and decided on cut-off shorts and a vintage Suzanne Vega t-shirt. Slipping my feet into my Bella Lou gladiator sandals, I thought I looked decent enough for the halls of my shitty little state college.

I grabbed my phone and was about to put it into my back pocket when I remembered why I’d opened Instagram in the first place. My thumb swiped over the smooth glass, the screen lighting up as I flipped to the account I had checked every morning since last November. It was an addiction, at least that sounded better than calling myself a stalker. It wasn’t my fault his feed was aesthetically pleasing and that the random shit he posted made me want to unravel him even more. His personality was a mystery. It by no means meant I wanted him.


Chance Davenport aka @a_twist_0f_fate and conveniently the new director at Pride House, the youth shelter where I happened to volunteer my time. This was all Parker’s fault, if I were being honest. He worked at Pride House, too, and every year the staff and residents put together and performed a play for charity. Last year I helped Parker out with the annual production, designing costumes and lending my makeup expertise. I’d thought I’d do my part and be done, working with kids wasn’t my thing. I was a design major, for fuck’s sake. But once I’d started and met the residents, I’d never admit it to a single soul, but I was smitten. The kids reminded me so much of myself at their age. Like me, these kids had been forced into the system and onto the streets by families who’d rather disown their blood than have a kid in the alphabet mafia. Every experience was different, every life unique, but I saw myself in their eyes. The hunger. The fear. The things we’d had to do to survive. Shit like that bruised you in places no one would ever see.

Chance hadn’t posted any hashtags, just a picture and his usual quote of the day. Today it was something from Aristotle.

One swallow does not make a summer, neither does one fine day; similarly one day or brief time of happiness does not make a person entirely happy.”

I stared at the simple snapshot of a river, the Spanish moss hung low from the branches of a tree, skimming the surface of the water. The sun hadn’t quite fully risen, the air steaming along the bank. I wondered if he’d taken the picture today. Had he woken up early with the intention of capturing this moment? Did he live near the river? Had he camped there overnight? Was he alone? And more importantly, why in the hell would anyone get up that early on purpose? The man was a riddle, and goddammit, I was going to figure him out.

“Are you stalking my boss again?” Parker asked and I almost dropped my phone.

¡Dios mío! You’re lucky I didn’t hit you and spill that coffee all over your frat boy gym shorts.” I put my phone in my pocket and he handed me a paper to-go cup, the sides almost too hot to hold. “Haven’t I taught you how to knock?”

“You mean like the time you didn’t knock when I was taking a shit last week, or when you didn’t knock and caught Van giving me head, or the time when—”

“I got it. You really should learn to lock a door. I’ve become way too familiar with your dick.”

“You’re welcome.” He smirked and sipped from his own cup. “What did he post today?”

“I don’t know?” I lied and snuck past him, heading for the bathroom to brush my teeth.

Right on my heels, Parker followed me, and I started to regret how I used to do the same shit to him. And by used to, I meant that I still did, almost every day, pester him incessantly, but whatever. I set my cup on the counter and grabbed my toothbrush. He leaned in the doorway, running a hand through his short blond hair, and watched me with his shrewd blue eyes.


“What?” I mumbled around my toothbrush before spitting into the sink.

“Chance. What did he post today?”

“God, you’re annoying.”

He smiled at me as I turned back to the sink. “You like him.”

“I don’t like anyone.”

“You like me.”


He laughed and took a sip of coffee before he spoke again. “You like him. He’s got the whole quiet, introverted, more than meets the eye, big lumberjack vibe. It’s hot. I get it.”

“Lumberjack? You mean tree-hugging hippy vibe.”

“I don’t think hippies have muscles like that, Basulto.”

I rolled my eyes and wiped my mouth. “He probably lives in a tent and eats kale.”

“You eat kale.”

“Never. Take that back.”

Cracking up, he held his stomach as I tapped my toothbrush against the sink with more aggression than necessary and put it away. “You look at his Instagram every day and don’t even lie. I’ve seen you do it in class. You tease him like it’s your life goal to make the man feel insecure about everything he wears. Which, by the way, the fact he hasn’t fired me for originally asking you to volunteer in the first place is a testament to his loyalty.”

“I don’t like him.” I pushed past him, almost spilling my coffee. “He’s like forty.”

He chuckled and followed me into the living room. “He’s thirty-five, I think, only a couple of years older than Van. Thank you very much. God, you’re basically the gay equivalent of that boy everyone warns their daughters about. The one who pulls pigtails because he has a crush.”

“Do not lump me into some toxically masculine, heteronormative urban legend.” Annoyed, I grabbed my bag from the floor and hauled it over my shoulder.

Smiling, he said, “You’re a bully.”

“I hate you.”

“I speak the truth.” His grin was jubilant, and dammit I hated how right he was.

Did I like Chance’s perpetual state of khaki, utility pockets, and faded Earth Day t-shirts? Fuck no. The man had zero style. He literally smelled like clay. Or maybe it was rain. Mixed with sweat and sandalwood, or maybe pine, fuck, it was some type of wood.  I had no idea. But Madre de Díos it smelled amazing. And no, I would never ever speak those words out loud to a single soul. Not even to my best friend because it would give him a lifetime supply of bullshit to throw my way, and my complexion couldn’t handle that many frown lines. And maybe he was built like a god and had blue eyes that saw right through me. And yeah, he had weathered-looking hands I might’ve had fantasies about, and sure, he’d spent the majority of his adult life working in other countries, donating his time to service, helping humanity like the hippy he’d been born to be, but that didn’t mean I had to fuck the guy. He was sure in his skin. Maybe I found all of that attractive. It didn’t mean I had a crush. Besides, no one was perfect. He had to have flaws beyond his sad wardrobe. I just had to find them.

Not A Boy
By Elle Keaton

Not A Boy Elle Keaton

All American Boy Series, Book 9

Henry should have kept on walking by when he spotted the younger man sitting alone on the beach. He should never have stopped, never sat down, and certainly never kissed him. Because now Henry is experiencing feelings. And he doesn’t like it one bit.

Things happen for a reason, even random hook-ups. Ben was supposed to get off work early that night. It was no accident the sexy stranger stumbled on his beach hiding spot. The Kiss was destined, as well as what happened afterward. It wasn’t as if Ben believed in love at first sight, but this was damn close.

It’s a good thing Henry lives three-thousand miles away or he might do something stupid, like ask for Ben’s phone number.

Ben’s hometown boss begs him to return and he agrees, only regretting not being able to say goodbye to his snarky divorce lawyer. But all the wanting in the universe isn’t going to bring them together again, he doesn’t even know Henry’s last name. Besides, home is on the west coast, not Maine.

Sometimes the universe is a funny place.

“Would you like to join me?” The young man waggled the bottle of wine he held in his hand—white, it looked like.

He shouldn’t. Henry knew he shouldn’t. He should keep walking back to the bed and breakfast where he was staying. The one he and his parents had always stayed in when they visited. And yet, without conscious thought, Henry found himself accepting the invitation and lowering himself down onto the sand and rocks, next to the handsome, faintly roguish-looking stranger.

“Sorry, I only have one cup. My name’s Ben, by the way.”

“Hi, Ben-by-the-way, my name’s Henry.” Henry took the bottle from Ben.

Lifting his wine, Ben said, “A toast. To sunsets, and smart asses.”

The lawyer, the diva, and a new adventure…


Life is good. A few years ago, I met someone special, came out as bi, fell head over heels, and married the love of my life. A man. But not just any man.

Aaron is a confident, unapologetically fabulous diva who isn’t afraid to take chances. I love that about him. New state, new career path…no problem.

Except things don’t always go according to plan. That’s okay. It might be the perfect time to get back to basics and check off a few items on our original list…like buy a house and start a family. Whoa! House first.

However, house hunting isn’t glamorous at all, and with my partnership at the law firm in the balance, it’s kind of stressful. Everything we’ve dreamed of is within reach—if we can just find a place that feels like home, we’ll be better than good.

Better Than Home is a sweet and sexy novella featuring Matt and Aaron from my International Bestselling book, Better Than Good. The lawyer, the diva, and the happy ever after of a lifetime. For readers who know the real love story happens after the first “I love you.”

“To new adventures.”

“To us.”

We went quiet for a while, lost in our thoughts as we people-watched and shared occasional commentary on random things like the playful Lab trotting after his person with a Frisbee in his mouth or the college-age film students setting up their cameras under the trees behind us.

“We can try again, you know,” I said softly.

“Yes.” Aaron rested his head on my shoulder, then glanced up. “But I think you’re right. It’s time to move on and make new plans. Let’s start house hunting tomorrow.”

Screech. Halt. What?


“Or soon. Like next week. There’s a lot to consider. We have to narrow down neighborhoods we like and look into school districts, proximity to the city and our friends and family. I love Jay and Peter’s hood. And I’d love to be close to the twins, but we may want to be closer to my folks. Mom will want to babysit and—”

“We don’t have kids.”

“But we will! Come along, love of my life. We have so much to discuss!”

He jumped from the bench and tugged at my hand, slipping his arm through mine as he pulled me toward the sidewalk, continuing excitedly about houses and dogs and babies and future things that had seemed impossibly far away an hour ago.

Yes, it was overwhelming as hell. But forward-thinking optimism was the best way to move past disappointment. And we were definitely going to do everything on that list.
