Within her walls are stories. Love. Laughter. Tears. Lives lived to the fullest, and sometimes cut short before they really get started. She’s seen it all, from homelessness to super-stardom, boys dressed as girls, girls dressed as lamps, and boy, does she have secrets she could tell. Her one truth is that everyone who darkens her doors is accepted with open arms and a song.
Her name is Queers, and for one of L.A.’s few dueling piano bars, she has a lot of heart. On her stage, the beautiful voice of Duff McKinley rings so true he captures the shattered heart of his boss, Brad Mosely, who checked out of life three years ago. But even lifelong dreams have untold consequences.
Duff came to L.A. to chase his musical aspirations, but his best friend Garrett Slater accompanied him to chase a wish of his own: finding The One, his white knight. He believes Landon Kennedy fits the bill. Suave, handsome, and powerful in the music industry, Landon can show Garrett a life he's only seen in movies. But even as Landon helps Duff realize his dreams, he brings Garrett into a nightmare he may never leave, one from which Garrett's roommate, Jackson Moriarty, is determined to rescue him. If Garrett repays Jackson by seeing his own charms, so much the better.
Yes, within her walls, Queers has long history. Unrequited love, sinister intentions, fame, fortune, and a group of friends and lovers who would do anything for each other no matter the cost.

There really aren't enough adjectives to due this story justice. Phenomenal, magnificent, breathtaking, gripping, intriguing ... and about a million more and STILL they wouldn't come close to describing the experience of reading this book. I love AJ Rose's work, he has a way of pulling you right into his world with the first word and you don't want to leave until you get to the last ... you don't want to eat or sleep or even breathe for that matter. This book is full of well-developed, complex characters, the multiple story lines will keep you turning page after page, and the emotions you feel: joy, fear, anger, sadness, love, and hope will keep you on a roller coaster of emotions you won't want to ever end. Give this amazing book a try (and be sure to check out his other work if you haven't done so already) and be prepared for an incredible experience! I can't say enough about this book.
