Simon Cowen’s life is as neatly tailored as his bespoke suits, everything and everyone in a particular place. Just because a person works on the shadier side of legality, doesn’t mean they have to be uncivilized. It’s this control that has made Simon good at his job.
His parents were soulmates, but Simon decided a long time ago that he had no desire to ever be so weak to another person. Weakness didn’t fit into his neatly framed life. He certainly had no interest in falling in love with the sloppy, flirtatious Luc Allard. Or at least, that’s what he told himself.
When an accident on a con job causes Simon to bond to Luc, he must relearn what it means to put his life in someone else’s hands.
Joshua Simpson has just finished four years at Purdue University, but that’s not why he’s buzzing with excitement. Once they’ve said goodbye to their families, Josh and his best friend Alex are taking off to discover America in an old but reliable VW van, planning on not seeing snow for an entire year.
Josh has always considered himself straight—except for that one time in college—so when he and Alex are living in such close proximity on the road, he’s unsure what these new feelings mean. Is it because they’re spending 24/7 together, or is it something deeper? And does it really matter since Josh has only ever seen Alex with women?
While in Oregon, Josh meets Johnno, a sexy but confusing Aussie surfer. While having an impromptu surfing lesson, Johnno helps Josh realize who he is and what he wants—but Alex’s reaction leaves Josh confused.
From a Montana ranch to the bright lights and dangerous streets of Los Angeles, to a dark and lonely deserted highway in Alabama, join Josh and Alex as they drive around the US, discovering not only who they are, but who they can be together.

Kade doesn’t mean to offend. He tries to say the right thing, but it comes out wrong—as though he’s caught in a game where no one will tell him the rules. He’s thrilled when Danny offers to mentor him.
But he can’t help noticing the beauty in Danny’s dark eyes. If Kade is straight, why does Danny tie his stomach in knots like a pretty girl does?
In the eye of the storm…
As their friendship becomes more, Danny wonders if his heart is safe. Kade’s conservative Southern background doesn’t make it easy for him to come out as bi. Hunkered down during a hurricane, a misunderstanding blows up into something more serious. Now Kade’s missing, and Danny’s frantic. Will they—and their relationship—survive in one piece?
