When 19-year-old military veteran Brandon Hawkins is attacked on Venice Beach by a gang of frat boys, he is saved by Michelangelo Curtis, a passerby.

Michelangelo was roaming the boardwalk grieving the death of his twin brother six months earlier. The two men’s unexpected encounter forges a strong bond between the damaged and lonely men.

Inviting the homeless Bran to his place for some food and a shower, 25-year-old Michelangelo finds himself drawn to the younger man. Neither of the men is gay. But before long, their friendship morphs into something like love and takes them both by surprise.

And they have something else in common: The frat boys are out for revenge.

About the Author

Jan St. Marcus grew up in the suburbs of Washington, D.C., and has traveled all over the world during his military service. A professional photographer, he has lived in many places, and is proud to call the D.C. area home once again. This is the author's debut novel, which was inspired by his encounter with a young, homeless veteran in the suburbs of Washington, D.C. "He earned a Bronze Star in the Marines and I was shocked at how little help there was for him and the thousands of other homeless U.S. military veterans." He is currently working on two more novels in the Boys of Venice Beach Series, loosely based on people he met when he was living in Venice Beach, California.
