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.

Abhorrence

Marco May

Art is a spineless Christian who's been bullied at school for being a dork and treated poorly by his devout parents for being gay. He can't seem to defend himself no matter how hard he tries, especially because he believes God wouldn't like it. He's relieved to graduate high school, and he plans to move out of his parents' house to a toxic-free environment. It's the one escape route he clings to.

In what first seems like a stroke of good luck for once, Art meets Cole at a restaurant while Cole waits his table, and they hit it off rather quickly. They swap numbers and plan to meet up later on, only for it to be the last that they see each other.

Soon after, Art encounters someone he knows very well who changes his life for the worst, and Art tries to end his life after the incident. His parents don't believe him when he tells them what happened, nor do they support his mental health. Therefore, he feels he has no choice but to leave as soon as possible. Little does he know, Cole—the one guy he thought he'd never see again—could end up becoming more important than he ever imagined.

But will Art open up and give Cole a chance?

Publisher's note: This novel contains "off-page" sexual assault, suicidal ideation, and a suicide attempt.

Struck: The Lightning Project

Struck: The Lightning Project

The Lightning Project #1

Victoria Kinnaird

Ethan Thorn is a lot of things. The heroic type isn’t one of them.

A hacker with a tendency to self-isolate too much, Ethan is desperate for something different in life, something more exciting than the sleepy town of Orchard Side. Being “Struck” and waking up in a secret government facility in a New York skyscraper certainly wasn’t what he had in mind.

Against his will, he’s now part of The Lightning Project, a government program to turn average teens into crime-fighting superheroes. As much as Ethan hates it, there’s one thing he secretly loves about it: Adam, the project leader. He’s a sweet, shy, boy-next-door type, certainly not someone Ethan should be interested in. Nonetheless, Ethan finds himself drawn to Adam.

Faced with a devastating secret from The Lightning Project’s past, Ethan comes up against the most difficult choice of his entire life. Does he take his place as a member of the team, accept his destiny as a superhero, and bury the part of him that questions authority at every turn? Or does he go back to the life he hated in Orchard Side?
