Nothing in my life is really mine. I take care of my mama, work three jobs, I'm there when anyone needs me. Something about the beautiful, lonely man on my mail route interests me. He's different in my world, where everything's the same. I think he hates me, but that doesn't stop me from hand-delivering every package and trying to find ways to make him smile.
Then Emerson makes me an offer: he'll pay me to spend the weekends with him, losing ourselves in each other's bodies, no feelings or pasts involved.
Friday through Sunday become mine, the one thing I do for me. Soon it's not just the weekends I want, but Emerson. He's got secrets, though, and won't let me in.
I landed in the small town of Ryland, hoping to disappear. Finding your boyfriend's body and being accused of his murder will do that to a guy. The deal with Sam is supposed to be strictly physical, but it doesn't take long for the adorable, sweet man to get under my skin.
I look forward to his corny jokes, get addicted to the feel of his body against mine. He's got the biggest heart I've ever seen, and with each day, each conversation we have, every laugh we share, Sam brings me back to life.
There are a million reasons I should stay away: I'm broken, fifteen years older, too sad, too angry, and can't let my past get out. But Sam makes me want to fight for my happiness if the reward is him. Because having Sam only for the weekend will never be enough.
Only for the Weekend is a grumpy/sunshine, hurt/comfort, age-gap romance with two scarred characters who find comfort in each other. There are themes of alcoholism involving a secondary character.
Jasper’s been my best friend my whole life. From losing my family when I was young, to living together and running our business, it’s always been me and Jasp. I feel more for him than I should, but confessing the truth would be the first step to losing him.
Our lives are so entwined, it’s hard to tell where one of us ends and the other begins. It’s killing me more each day to be this close to him and not be able to call him mine, so when it hurts too much, the only choice is to walk away.
My life is perfect. I have my family, my business, and my best friend. But when Sutton starts pulling away, everything changes, and it’s ripping me apart, forcing me to admit hard truths—that I feel different when he touches me; that I need him always by my side.
The thing is, I’m in love with Sutton, and apparently he feels the same. Loving Sutton is as easy as breathing, yet knowing my parents won’t accept us, not with all the backward things they raised me to believe, makes each day a struggle.
But one thing I know for sure—the world doesn’t make sense if Sutton and I aren’t together. We’ve had a million little moments to prove it. And to be the man he deserves, I have to fight for him, for us, and maybe that means fighting for myself too.
A Million Little Moments is a double bi-awakening, friends-to-lovers romance filled with first times, self-discovery, and two men destined to be together.
*A Million Little Moments deals with themes of homophobia and contains homophobic language.

I have a great family, a successful career, and never struggle to find the company of a man when I want it, and I do—often. The loss of my brother years ago is the one dark spot in an otherwise perfect life. But at forty-three, my world suddenly feels emptier than it should. Something’s missing. I don’t know what it is…or how I think I’ll find it spending a summer in a small town in North Carolina.
I’ve spent my life in love with the woman who married my brother. When they passed, I raised their son, living with the guilt of my feelings. Now, at forty-eight, I’m used to being alone. Until I meet Charles.
I’ve never known someone like him—a wealthy, confident city man I shouldn’t have anything in common with. He’s determined to be friends. We play music together, spend our nights talking in ways I’ve never done. I look forward to seeing him—and to those innocent touches that make me crave more.
I don’t experience attraction the way most folks do, but as our friendship grows, I can’t deny I want him. It’s my first time with a man. Every brush of his skin against mine makes me feel things I hadn’t thought possible. I didn’t know intimacy could be like this. I could spend a lifetime kissing him, but for us to have any chance at a future, we’ll both have to face truths we’ve tried to ignore for too long.
A Lifetime Kissing You is a small-town, opposites-attract romance with first times, lots of touch, and a love of music.
