Learning to love means a study in patience. Fresh out of the military, Ben Cooper is ready for a new start. He’s away from his domineering father, making his own choices... and out of the closet. On his first day of college, he meets David Powell, who’s just the kind of gorgeous man Ben’s dreamed of. Too bad he’s the teaching assistant—which makes him off-limits in Ben’s eyes. David is Ben’s age, but his life has taken a different path. He’s close with his family, who helped him deal with personal struggles after he came out. And while he’s staying away from any hint of scandal, Ben’s a kind of temptation he hasn’t faced in years. If only they’d met on more equal footing. As the semester progresses and their lives become more entwined, keeping their relationship platonic becomes more difficult. They just have to hold out until the end of the semester....
About the Author
Shae Connor lives in Atlanta, where she’s a lackadaisical government worker for a living and writes sweet-hot romance under the cover of night. She’s been making things up for as long as she can remember, but it took her a while to figure out that maybe she should try writing them down. A member of the Romance Writers of America, Shae was first published in 2010. She’s released a long list of short stories, novellas, and novels, and her work has appeared in a number of anthologies, most notably Playing Ball, which won the 2014 Rainbow Award for Best LGBT Anthology/Collection. Her novel Unfortunate Son was a 2015 Rainbow Award finalist for Best Gay Erotic Romance. Shae is part Jersey, part Irish, and all Southern, which explains why she never shuts up. When she’s not chained to her laptop, she enjoys cooking, traveling, watching baseball, reading voraciously, giving and receiving hugs, and wearing tiaras. She also volunteers as director and editor of the Dragon Con on-site publication, the Daily Dragon.
