Meet the Author

Drake Braxton is an avid reader of M/M fiction and wanted to offer a multi-genre voice in the GLBT arena with this debut novel. He loves authors that can mix romance with erotic scenes and still be great story tellers. He is the author of the short piece Living for an Obsessed Life and is working on a M/M romance that deals with time-travel, train wrecks, and trapeze artists that he hopes readers will enjoy sometime in 2013.

    Blaine Harrington wasn¿t one of the popular kids at school, but

    Blaine Harrington wasn’t one of the popular kids at school, but that doesn’t stop him from returning to the small Alabama town he grew up in and bringing his husband along. His Brazilian husband hits two hot buttons within that town- gay and foreign and so Blaine rethinks the wisdom of this decision when he notices that his beloved has disappeared and he finds his cell phone discarded in a potted plant and a homphobic doodle with a chilling implication scribbled upon a crumpled napkin left upon a table. When it becomes apparent that something untoward has happened and the police are being less than helpful, Blaine’s real friends rally round him, but is it going to be enough as his world comes to a crashing end?



    Drake Braxton takes a nightmare scenario and turns it into a suspenseful page turner with twists and turns that I couldn’t see coming at all. He did it so deftly that when the story took an unexpected turn at a fork in the road, I was left breathless from the sheer emotional punch he delivered so deftly. I have to admit I myself have a real terror of something happening to my other half and being left alone in this world, and Blaine’s fear, pain, and mind tearing grief were so well portrayed that I felt actual pangs of anxiety right alongside him.



    The very palpable grief itself became a major plot point, and it is how Blaine and their friends dealt with it that made this story so very special. Braxton’s handling of the subject matter was done with a real finesse that showed true mastery over the raw forces of emotions contained within the pages of this novel. It is an astonishing debut for a very promising writer. A must read for fans of romantic fiction of ANY genre and a jewel in the crown for this year’s LGBTQ fiction.
