Squishy Crushy Something

Squishy Crushy Something

Happy Lucky Everything, Book One

Kieran Frank

Jayden never expected he’d be the type to develop a squish on a boy, never mind a full-blown crush.

It started with Kail, a boy with looks and popularity and all-around awesomeness. Developing a squish on Kail might’ve been natural for Jayden, of course, as anyone could fall for that boy. But it’s now three years later, the summer before senior year, and Jayden’s squish on Kail has grown into a crush that he can no longer ignore. And this crush is leading Jayden to make decisions he knows he’ll regret later.

But Kail isn’t the only one Jayden is having squishy crushy troubles with.

He used to be friends with Ollie, but when Ollie got too deep into religion, it drove Jayden away. Now, Ollie is back and he seems much more open-minded—not to mention much more attractive—and Jayden can’t help but develop a squish. But could it turn into a crush?

Jayden is caught between two squishy crushes—the crush on the boy that he knows is toxic, and the potential crush that could make or break a friendship—and he doesn’t know what to do. The right choice could bring him happiness, but if he makes the wrong choice he could lose everything.

Pieces of My Life

Pieces of My Life

Chris Bedell

Kevin should be living the life of every eighteen-year-old—applying to colleges, procrastinating on homework, and hanging with friends. Instead, he’s starting senior year at a new school, still struggling to cope with the sudden and tragic death of his secret boyfriend a mere two months ago.

He just wants to go to school, do the work, and go home…and not talk to anyone. But that plan is foiled by Wesley, an arrogant, talkative jock who just won’t leave Kevin alone. It gets even worse when they’re assigned to work together on a project. And it really hits rock bottom when Kevin realizes Wesley is flirting with him.

But maybe this could be a good thing—for both of them. With Wesley being closeted, maybe Kevin can help him make peace with who he is. And if he explores this flirtation with Wesley, this might be the thing to help Kevin work through the grief that clouds his days and find the light of happiness again.

My Boyfriend’s Teen Son

My Boyfriend's Teen Son

Marco May

Mark and Juan are deeply in love. But that doesn't mean their relationship is without troubles.

Together for five years, Mark has never once cheated on Juan...despite Juan no longer wanting any form of sex. Mark has been forced into a life of celibacy that he never asked for. It's worth it, though, because he loves Juan so much.

When Julio, Juan's eighteen-year-old son, is kicked out of his mom's house for being gay, he moves in with Mark and Juan. He immediately captures Mark's attention in a way Mark has never experienced before...and in a way Mark knows is deeply wrong. Julio was once a skinny little kid, but now he's a well-developed man with head-turning good looks and so much sex appeal, despite being a total virgin.

Mark does his best to ignore his burgeoning feelings for Julio, but this becomes nigh impossible when it seems that Julio is making the moves on him. It's suddenly clear this isn't just a one-way crush.

And with Mark’s lust for his boyfriend’s teen son on the rise, he fears it will soon be impossible to go back to how things used to be.

Saved Tonight

Saved Tonight

Colt Oakley

When Miles dog-sits for a friend, he settles in for a cozy stay with Maisy, expecting lots of walks and comfortable days spent on the couch. What he doesn’t expect is that the top name on the emergency contact list—his client’s neighbor—is Oliver Greystone. The Oliver Greystone. Creator of Saved Tonight, the one-season cult TV show that literally saved Miles’s life.

When Oliver meets Miles, the overzealous Saved Tonight fan standing on his front steps, all he wants to do is slam the door in the guy’s face. The last thing he needs is another fan of his failed TV show to remind him of how much he embarrassed himself with that whole debacle.

But there’s something about Miles that Oliver can’t shake. Maybe it’s the goofy nature, maybe it’s all the delicious baking…or maybe it’s because Miles is finally making Oliver feel like he's not a failure.

The Line of Succession 5: Royal Prerogative

The Line of Succession 5: Royal Prerogative

Harry F. Rey

The crisis facing the British monarchy is rushing headlong to catastrophe. To show the world that Britain is ready to embrace change, Prince James has embraced a royal referendum, to let the people decide who will be the next monarch.

Will the British people accept James, a gay man, as their soon-to-be king? Or will they break with centuries of tradition and sidestep him to embrace his sister Alexandra, a woman who promises great reform?

But the crisis extends much deeper than the tabloid headlines.

James and his fiance Andrew struggle to adjust to their newfound status in life and in the public while facing endless obstacles. With an indignant Church and affronted mothers trying to stand in their way and all of the drama in the palace regarding the new hot young servants, James is a tabloid headline away from losing it all.

Meanwhile, Alexandra and Faisal's shaky marriage is on the verge of crumbling. She's willing to sacrifice her marriage—there's no cost too high—if it means she can win the royal referendum and become the Queen she knows she's destined to be and secure a royal future for her children.

And in the background is Lizzie, the illegitimate daughter of Prince Richard and half-sister of James and Alexandra. She's all too happy to help if it means bringing her war against James to a bitter conclusion, and perhaps destroying the monarchy.

One thing is clear: The battle for the line of succession is far from over.

His Contrary Mate

His Contrary Mate

His Mate #6

Charli Mac

Janna knows what the shifters in her pack think of her. They say she’s difficult. Stubborn. Willful. They say she needs to find her mate and settle down. The only friend she has is a blood sucker, Kevin, the one who rescued her from the psycho vamp Julian when he kidnapped her. When her father arranges to foster her with another pack far away, she thinks about turning to Kevin, but what’s a single vampire supposed to do against an entire pack of shifters? She’s resigned to her fate, until the alpha from the new pack arrives and Janna overhears exactly what his plans for her are.

Kevin exists at the bottom of the pile. He’s the youngest and the weakest vampire in the seethe, and that makes him the dogsbody, the butt of the joke. The punching bag. Janna is the one light spot in his life…and now she’s leaving him. When Janna’s alpha storms into the seethe, hunting for his missing daughter, Kevin doesn’t care that finding her probably means handing her over to someone else. She’s out there, alone in the dark, and all he can think of is getting her safe.

They’ll worry about the rest, after.

His Contrary Mate is a 23,000-word novella and part six in a six-part series.

His Classy Mate

His Classy Mate

His Mate #5

Charli Mac

Evangeline occupies an extremely privileged place in the seethe, high in Master’s favor, and she’d be extremely happy with her lot in life if it wasn’t for Julian, the annoying vampire who wants her as his mate and who won’t take no for an answer. He’s too powerful for her to spurn him completely, but she’s running out of ways to put him off. A reckoning is coming, and when she saves an elderly man from being Julian’s next victim, she knows she brings that reckoning much closer.

The woman who drives Michael’s dad back from the restaurant after he took a strange funny turn is stunningly beautiful, graceful and ladylike. When she suddenly disappears, it’s not hard for Michael to convince himself that he imagined her. Bumping into her again on a routine construction job, he’s astonished when she asks him out on a date. What would a woman like her want with an average Joe like him?

When Master sends Evangeline in to investigate an unusual occurrence in Julian’s territory, she finds herself sticking her neck out for Michael—never a comfortable thing for a vampire—and protecting him from Julian…which paints a big red target on his back. She needs to find out exactly what Julian’s up to, and fast, to save them both.

His Classy Mate is a 21,000-word novella and part five in a six-part series.
