Boys Don't Cry
Hey guys! Hopefully you’ve seen the cover for my upcoming m/m romance Boys Don’t Cry on the blogs who hosted my cover reveal:
But just in case you haven’t, I’ll post it here too! My projected release date is May 25th! We’ll be finishing up edits in the next few days, so that should be pretty on target.
This book is a little bit left of center from my previous work. While my previous work is sometimes dark, and usually deals with mental illness and haunted pasts, this book is more light-hearted and fun. Though I will say it’s not without a little angst. My editor did say I owed her tissues. I hope you like the cover!
Mackenzie Pratt is having the worst luck of his life. His apartment building is being torn down, and since he’s jobless and just weeks away from graduating college, he can’t find anywhere else he can afford to live that isn’t a critter-infested dump. As he’s lamenting the very real possibility of job hunting while couch-surfing, he gets an offer from the coworker of his best friend.
An in-demand mobile app developer and heir to his parents’ fortune, Laurent Beaudry is literally an eccentric billionaire. Even though Mackenzie realizes he’s basically living the plot of a cheesy romance novel, he takes the proffered room in Laurent’s Baltimore mansion. He finds his new housemate to be grumpy, brooding, and, at times, incredibly kind and endearing.
Raised by his brother after their father’s death, Mackenzie spent his formative years plowing headlong through school, focusing on little else beyond earning his teaching certification. He’s never taken the time to explore love and relationships, much less sexuality, so when he finds himself being courted by another man, he has no idea what to do. And when he realizes he might actually return those feelings, his life takes a whole new direction.
