Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The most dangerous lies are the ones you tell yourself.

Dylan Williams is not gay. Sometimes he gets off with other guys, but so what? He plans to get married someday-really married, like with a wife and kids. And he's determined that his future family's life will be the normal one he and his brothers never had.

Mike Aurietta is gay, but his job keeps him in the closet. He doesn't usually risk frequenting infamous cruising places like Webber Park. But when he's cutting through one night, he finds himself defending a victim from gay bashers.

It's all Dylan can do to process the shock that anyone would want to hurt his quiet twin brother. At first he needs Mike's eyewitness report to satisfy the gut-wrenching desire for revenge. Then he finds himself needing Mike's solid, comforting presence...and the heat that unexpectedly flares between them.

In the aftermath, Mike quickly learns not to expect too much from his conflicted lover. Though he never thought his good deed would come back to bite him in the ass. Or that hanging on to the possibility of love could force too many secrets out of the closet-and cost them both everything.

Warning: Contains more denial than you can float a barge on, bigger issues than a special end-of-the-year compilation of your favorite magazine, and better sex than most people deserve. After all, it takes place in Texas.

Review:

"Mitchell (Bad Boyfriend) explores homophobia, both societal and internalized, in this dramatic and erotic interracial gay romance. Dylan Williams enjoys cruising for men in the park, but can't admit he's gay. Mike Aurietta is out and proud — except when it might risk his job as a physical trainer for the Texas Longhorns. After Dylan's twin brother, Darryl, is beset by gay-bashers, Mike chases them off and takes Darryl to the hospital, where he meets Dylan. Soon Mike and Dylan are drawn into a sexually charged, emotionally raw series of intense physical encounters. As Dylan comes to terms with his sexuality and the depths of his feelings for his new friend with benefits, Mike weighs the job he loves against the importance of testifying against Darryl's attackers. With friends and family repeatedly pointing out the obvious, it's only a matter of time before Dylan overcomes his self-hatred and accepts himself. There's more passion than plot, but fans of angsty hurt/comfort romance and athletic gay sex won't mind. (Aug.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
