About the Author

Marie Sexton is the author of over thirty published works. She’s written contemporary romance, science fiction, fantasy, dystopian fiction, historical short stories, and a few odd genre mash-ups. The one thing they all have in common? They all feature men falling in love with other men. Her first novel, Promises, was published in January 2010 and is considered a classic in the gay romance genre.
Marie is the recipient of multiple Rainbow Awards, as well as the CRW Award of Excellence in 2012. She was also a finalist for a Lambda Literary Award in 2017. Her books have been translated into seven languages.
Marie lives in Colorado. She’s a fan of just about anything that involves muscular young men piling on top of each other. In particular, she loves the Denver Broncos and enjoys going to the games with her husband. Her imaginary friends often tag along. Marie has one daughter, two cats, and one dog, all of whom seem bent on destroying what remains of her sanity. She loves them anyway.
Marie also writes dark dystopian fantasy under the name A.M. Sexton. You can find her at mariesexton.net, and on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

I LOVE THIS BOOK! I just finished reading it, and I already want to start on her next one! The relationship between Jared and Matt starts so innocently at first, and then evolves into one of trust, sacrifice, love, and commitment. If you're looking for a book all about sex...this isn't it. There are some steamy scenes, however it doesn't get overly graphic. Trust me, you WON'T be disappointed.

I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS BOOK!!! Matt and Jared have a beautiful story and you won't regret reading it. Definitely recommended!

This is an easy going story, with good dialogue and a engaging plot. It's short but nothing seems missing from the story and the romance is sweet and takes it's time to development. Nothing seems rushed. It's simple but it's entertaining. If you're a fan of GLBT I'd recommend it.

I've read a glut of m/m books lately and I have to say this is so much better than most of them. Lots rely on tricks - he's an assassin or a werewolf or so other and strange... but here, it's just two guys, people you meet in your day to day life, one a cop, one works in the family store. They live in a regular small town, not full of charming and twee characters, or mad eccentrics. But their story, their personal drama, it's gripping. The risk that Matt takes, the love that Jared has, it feels real and palpable. They meet some homophobia, but it's their inner demons that they really have to conquer. I really enjoyed Marie Sexton's writing, I liked her town, her descriptions of the mountains, her descriptions of extended family but mainly I really liked spending time with her protagonists, and showing how love made them grow. It's a keeper and she's a writer to look out for.

Adorable, cute, sexy m/m romance

So well written. The characters were realistic as well as their actions and emotions. Sometimes m/m stories tend to be too fast pass with instant love and characters coming to terms with life altering events and changes without much struggle. Sometimes that's nice & works depending on the type of story, but for a contemporary story like this a slow burn & struggle is so much more satisfying . I look forward to reading more in the series.

this is a terrific romance of two strong characters. both are hiding from their own sexuality in the ways that we have of being terrified or ashamed and it affects their relationship more than once, even as they move towards recognizing how deep the relationship could grow. it's a believable story, with passion, sex, and characters who actually make mistakes and live with the consequences. strongly recommend this book and its companion. wish this author would put out more.
