Lee trades country ballads for show tunes in the next standalone book of her M/M series, Roadmap to Your Heart.
After licking his wounds from a painful relationship, Tate Sullivan is ready to move back home. He picks up where he left off as drag queen extraordinaire Frieda Love in a West Village bar in New York City. He doesn't expect to be drawn to the mysterious man with the dark eyes who shows up to every single performance-flirtatiously eyeing Tate one second and disappearing on him the next. Why mess around with a guy who is clearly giving him mixed signals?
Sebastian Clark is on a mission the first night he shows up at Ruby Redd's. He doesn't anticipate his plan being flipped on its head by the charismatic drag queen and even more so by the mesmerizing man beneath the makeup. But the more he learns about the vibrant and brash Tate Sullivan the more intrigued he becomes. So he pushes aside his guilt about why he sought out the bar in the first place in order to get to know the guy behind the stilettos.
They're opposites on many levels, but as Tate spends time volunteering with Sebastian at the shelter, he begins to feel good about himself in ways he hadn't before. For Sebastian, Tate represents a sense of fun and freedom that is completely fresh and invigorating. Before they know it, their easy companionship catches fire, and Sebastian is kissing a man for the first time, while Tate is opening his heart to new possibilities. But Sebastian is still keeping a secret, and Tate will have to decide if he can trust again, or if the betrayal he feels from Sebastian's confession is too much to overcome.

This is my first book by Christina Lee and I really enjoyed it. I will definitely be reading more of her work. This has a good blend of emotion, sex and good old fashioned romance. I highly recommend.
“You never cease to amaze me, Baz.” ~Tate ★¸¸.•*¨*•★Minor spoilers alert!!!★•*¨*•.¸¸★ Writing style: Dual 1st person POV •*¨*• Cover design: I seriously love every single thing about this cover! The model's purple-tipped hair is a seriously cool tie-in to Tate's penchant for trying bold colors. •*¨*• Lead Characters: Tate Sullivan aka Frieda Love - drag queen extraordinaire and funny slogan T-shirt designer Sebastian Clark - owner of Rosie's Repair Shop and a Safe Harbor advocate •*¨*• Supporting characters: Tori - Tate's fantastic roommate who came up with the YouTube tutorial idea and always gave him a reality check on his behavior Annie - Sebastian's employee at Rosie's Repair Shop and his oldest family friend Alan - a douche canoe to the nth degree and Tate's former secret lover Safe Harbor - the staff and homeless visitors collectively •*¨*• This novel proved yet again why author Christina Lee is one of my go-to, top favorite authors to date. It goes without saying that Tate and Sebastian's love story had great character development, a lot of sexy build-up and steamy moments galore. Below are 5 great elements that also stood out to me: 5 Greats 1. Tate’s sense of ridiculousness 2. Baz’s introspective nature 3. Safe Harbor volunteering and donation ideas 4. Tate’s YouTube tutorials - that last one was so brave, bold, adorable and totally swoon worthy! 5. Tate and Baz working together but on separate things at Rosie’s Repair shop •*¨*• A FEW FAVORITE QUOTES: ‘I have never been pulled so strongly into another human being’s orbit. I’m not sorry I met you–because you opened up a part of me that had apparently been on lockdown. Thank you for that.’ ~Sebastian •*¨*• “I guess you could say that I’m newly out. Bisexual. Used to exclusively date women.” “Yeah?” I asked playing along. But hearing him own it did something funny to my chest. “Figured out that you like boys?” “Something like that.” He glanced briefly at me. “I certainly like one boy. One gorgeous boy.” •*¨*• ‘As our lips fused and held, everything faded away. The phone, the room, and the sounds of the city outside our window. Just a boy loving a boy and wanting everything with him.’ ~Tate
