When things at home get even worse than they’ve been, he’s ready and willing for a road trip with Grant, regardless of the reason. Grant Faraday thinks Wylie could be the guy for him. When Grant’s mother passes away just before Christmas and leaves him with the mysterious task of accessing the contents of a safety deposit box in a distant town, Wylie’s the only one Grant wants with him for the trip. Some secrets are easy for them to accept, but can their brand new relationship survive as past and present collide?
LOCKED IN THE CLOSET... Not long ago, Truman Durant was outed to his parents, disowned, and forced to live in his battered pickup truck. Only knowing he was already accepted to the local university kept Truman from giving up completely. Now he fiercely guards his sexuality from everyone who knows him, wanting only to achieve financial stability through a degree and a job. He refuses to be homeless again, so not even his fraternity brothers know who he really is...or why he has a trunk full of lingerie and dresses. Truman won't risk any kind of exposure, not even for love. Stasi Manolis is only a few steps out of the closet himself, but it's been a good so far. His large Greek family is trying, and he's grateful for every effort they make to modernize their thinking. He's out on campus and living in the gay fraternity, making friends and sharing benefits. The one guy who keeps catching Stas's attention is a gorgeous long-haired blond who plays baseball, wears reading glasses, and seems very lonely. While his tactics aren't the smoothest, Stasi doesn't hold back when he's after something he wants...and he wants Truman. ...SLOWLY COMING OUT Neither guy is truly prepared to deal with the other, but with a little open-mindedness and patience, they're going to try to make a secret relationship work. But secrets have a way of coming out and some people aren't willing to tolerate let alone accept what they don't understand. Will Truman lose everything for a second time, or will he have the strength to stand up for his rights now that Stasi's by his side?
