Alex Fletcher waits for life.
One more year and he can move away, stop wearing hoodies to hide the bruises, self-inflicted scars, and his sexuality.
No one knows him, no one sees him, until Chris Bacon shows him how to laugh, dance, live life in the moment, out and proud.
The lesson that life is too short hits harder than one of his dad's punches.
Living the dream, being visible, is a step too far without chemical help.
Doctor, paramedic, drug counselor, Nate Cooper is haunted by the brother he failed to save.
Bringing Alex back to life on the floor of a gay nightclub is only the first step.
Peeling away the layers to find the real Alex means blurring the lines between age, upbringing, social position, and the patient/doctor relationship.
Is Alex worth wrecking his career and giving up his addiction of saving lives?
Contains possible triggers for drug use, domestic abuse, self-harm and social anxiety.
About the Author
I’m a prolific, almost obsessive, reader/reviewer and author. My stories contain angst ridden, lusty and wonderfully imperfect characters with less than traditional attitudes to relationships. I always have a HFN or HEA ending but I do sometimes tease with a cliffhanger ending within a series. If you like sweet, perfect m/f couples, look elsewhere. My muse has taken me from scifi, and dark paranormal to contemporary romance, with relationship dynamics from m/f to ménage and m/m.
Before finding out how much fun writing fiction is, I had various jobs including tropical fish farmer, nursery teacher and cat breeder (all involve rounding up small beings). I’ve collected degrees in applied biology, psychology, sociology and special needs education. Along the way, I’ve picked up a husband and had four sons who are mortified that mum writes about S.E.X. Husband doesn’t seem to mind…
I love hearing from readers and always reply.
