 People deserve a second chance, right? How about a third or fourth?



But what if I can’t even admit to myself who I am? I was truthful once before. I came out to one other person, and he left me broken and scarred. He destroyed the boy I was. I don’t even use the same name anymore; I go by Trent now. But I survived the streets. I got lucky and I made something of myself. I’m happy, sort of.



It’s Angelo who lights up my life. He’s my world. My rock and my family. He’s always there for me. But I keep hurting him. I say stupid things, and I always keep him at a distance. Still, he knows me better than anyone.



And I want him. But I can’t let myself go there. Not again.



I’ve lived in denial for so long and it’s killing me. In my weakest moments, I reach for Angelo and when he slips into my arms, I can breathe. He’s my solace. Selflessly, he’s there and he never expects anything in return. No judgment, not even an explanation. Having him in my arms is everything, and it’s getting harder to push him away. I’m not sure I want to anymore.



He doesn’t date, but he deserves to be loved. Cherished. Then he drops a bombshell—he’s found The One. I wish he’d fallen for me. I need that second chance to tell him. I need to risk it all because in his arms, I’m safe. I’m me.

I stumbled through the door and closed it as quietly as I could. I had no idea what time it was, but it was late. There were no lights on in any of the houses I’d passed, and even the barking dogs were fast asleep. I wasn’t sure if I’d blacked out or not, but I didn’t remember getting tossed down the front steps of Ryan’s house. When I’d woken up, my head throbbed like a bitch and every muscle in my body ached. I was cold, my shivering so bad that my teeth were chattering. I couldn’t feel my fingers or toes. I was sticky, from what I wasn’t sure but at least some of it was my own blood—my nose? My eyebrow? There were other places I couldn’t think about that were sticky too. My skin crawled. I wanted nothing more than to scrub myself down with a steel brush, to remove every particle, every cell of his off me. I shuddered.
I was dirty. Exposed. Weak.
After I’d woken, I had to get out of there. I had to leave before I vomited all over his front lawn, and there was no way I’d let him see how much he’d destroyed by doing that. So I’d crawled along the path to the brick letterbox and used it to pull myself upright. The world spun around me and I’d breathed through my swollen nose, groaning from the pain. Stepping away tentatively, I’d stumbled down the street. I fell, grazing my hands and knees on the pebbled drives and the tarmac roads. It was hard to keep upright but the fences helped. The streetlights had hurt my eyes. I’d shied away from them.
I was numb. Distant. Far away.
The walls supported my weight as I stumbled through the house to the bathroom. Leaving the light off, I closed and locked the door, propping the washing basket behind it—as if that would stop anyone getting in there. I looked in the mirror, but it was dark enough that I couldn’t see myself. Thank God. I reached behind the curtain and turned the hot water on, not even bothering with the cold. My socks were wet. Did they get wet when I toed my shoes off outside? I didn’t know why, but it seemed important in that moment. I needed to figure it out, to know exactly what had happened to get them that way. I dropped one in my fumbling and reached down to pick it up. A piercing pain sliced through my head, fireworks lighting up behind my eyelids. The throb behind my eyes pounded. My head swam, the pain so visceral that my stomach heaved. My knees hit the floor, and I reached for the lid on the toilet. I retched into the bowl, over and over until I was spent, purging myself of everything I’d eaten. If only I could do the same to my memories. To my body.

By day Ann Grech lives in the corporate world and can be found sitting behind a desk typing away at reports and papers or lecturing to a room full of students. She graduated with a PhD in 2016 and is now an over-qualified nerd. Glasses, briefcase, high heels and a pencil skirt, she’s got the librarian look nailed too. If only they knew! She swears like a sailor, so that’s got to be a hint. The other one was “the look” from her tattoo artist when she told him that she wanted her kids initials “B” and “J” tattooed on her foot. It took a second to register that it might be a bad idea.

She’s never entirely fit in and loves escaping into a book—whether it’s reading or writing one. But she’s found her tribe now and loves her MM book world family. She dislikes cooking, but loves eating, can’t figure out technology, but is addicted to it, and her guilty pleasure is Byron Bay Cookies. Oh and shoes. And lingerie. And maybe handbags too. Well, if we’re being honest, we’d probably have to add her library too given the state of her credit card every month (what can she say, she’s a bookworm at heart)!

Last Night by Kim Deister


Title: Last Night
Author: Kim Deister
Genre: Thriller/Suspense
Release Date: September 21, 2019
Cover Designer: Claire Smith

 Available now! 
Terrifying visions torment Starra. Lost moments of time and flashes of images too horrific to accept fill her with icy fear so complete she can’t escape it. With too many unanswered questions, she needs answers. Now. It’s her only hope if she wants to save what’s left of her shattered mind and soul.



Unlike Starra, Mina cares nothing for her soul. Damned long ago, she’s too scarred for redemption. There are people meant to enjoy lives of love and family and friends. Mina isn’t one of these people. Her life is in the shadows, unafraid of the dark... until she realizes that something lurks in those shadows, something that wants to tear her apart.



One never knows what the darkness hides...








The night energy was different, more frenetic, more anxious. It crawled along my skin and fed my soul. I wanted more. I needed more. I wanted to take what I wanted and to hell with the rules. 

But I couldn’t. Not yet.

I knew what passersby saw when they looked at me. A slim, fit woman in her midtwenties with blonde hair that fell just below her shoulders. Just like thousands of other women in the city, easily dismissed from their memory. Some of them looked at me for a little longer. Sometimes, it was with the concern that one stranger has for another as they wondered why I didn’t seem to sense the danger they unconsciously did. Those people looked at me and saw a victim waiting to happen. Men looked at me for baser reasons, seeing a woman they wanted to fuck and toss aside when they were finished. 

No matter what they saw when they looked at me, none of them saw danger in my face. They didn’t look at me and see someone they should fear. 

Maybe that was their mistake.



Kim Deister was born and raised in a tiny town in the wilds of northern New York that is less than six hours from the Arctic Circle, a pretty college town called Potsdam. She grew up in a family of lawyers and teachers and bucked all the traditions to run off and wear combat boots in the US Army as a Signals Intelligence Analyst (no jokes!) and a linguist. She also worked as a tech writer for Corning Glass Works, which was an entirely different kind of writing. 

Living the Army life has allowed Kim to travel all over and much of that has seeped into her books. She has a love of strong female characters, tropical places, and flipping traditional themes on end. She loves that words can take one out of the existing world and let the unimaginable become imaginable. When she’s not writing, she’s probably on the beach, with her nose deep in a book.

I've Got This by Louisa Masters

"A great story of love, friendship, letting go and letting someone in."
Title: I've Got This
Series: Joy Universe, #1
Publisher: Dreamspinner Press
Release: Sept 24th
Genre: M/M Romance
Tropes: Enemies to Lovers
Word count: 72k
"If you are looking for a medium burn romance with more emotionally intimate moments than explicitly intimate ones, with a host of relatable characters, and a HEA that makes you look forward to book #2, this is for YOU!" -- 5 Stars, Amazon Reviewer
Derek Bryer loves his life. His job as an assistant director at Joy Universe, the second-largest theme park complex on the planet, makes him indirectly responsible for bringing joy (pun intended) to millions of people. So what if none of his relationships are that close? Everyone he meets loves him.



Except Trav Jones. For some reason, the visiting Broadway performer would rather Derek just go away. He appreciates Derek’s work ethic, though, and after Trav steps up when Derek desperately needs someone to fill in for his sick staff, Derek seizes the chance to convince Trav he’s not such a bad guy.



Falling in love while distracted by a murder at the park, food poisoning, and colleagues laying bets on their relationship won’t be easy, but between the two of them and with the magic of Joy Universe, they’ve got this.
