Publisher: Cool Dudes Publishing
Cover Artist: Louis C. Harris


Strutting his stuff on the catwalk in black patent leather pumps and a snug orange tuxedo as this year’s Miss (ter) Harvest Moon feels so very right to Chance César, and yet he knows it should feel so very wrong.

As far back as he can remember, Chance has been “caught between genders.” (It’s quite a touchy subject; so don’t ask him about it.) However, he does not question his sexual orientation. Chance has no doubt about his gayness—he is very much out of the closet at his rural New Hampshire high school, where the other students avoid the kid they refer to as “girl-boy.”

But at the local Harvest Moon Festival, when Chance, the Pumpkin Pageant Queen, meets Jasper Donahue, the Pumpkin Carving King, sparks fly. So Chance sets out, with the help of his BFF, Emily, to make “Jazz” Donahue his man.

An article in an online women’s magazine, Ten Scientifically Proven Ways to Make a Man Fall in Love with You (with a bonus love spell thrown in for good measure), becomes the basis of their strategy to capture Jazz’s heart.

Quirky, comical, definitely flamboyant, and with an inner core of poignancy, Love Spell celebrates the diversity of a gender-fluid teen.

Not to say that I kept my phone basically right beneath my chin for the next four days, but I kept my phone basically right beneath my chin for the next four days. Yes, I was oh-so-pathetically waiting for his call, which I am aware fully explains the need for the phrase “get a life.” But Jazz hadn’t been at school on the Thursday or Friday after he had called and cancelled our playdate, and now it’s Sunday night, and I still haven’t heard from him. And although I’m frustrated that all of my elaborate plans to make him fall head over heels in love with moi have apparently tanked, I’m also growing genuinely concerned.
That’s when my cell phone, which I placed on my chest before I lay down on my now “love-spell-pink” wrapped mattress, starts singing Express Yourself.
“Yo.” I don’t check the number. It’s Emmy—who else would it be?
“Hi, Chance.” The deep voice is so not Emmy’s.
Yaaassss!!! This is what ninety-nine percent of my insides shout. One percent says quietly, “It’s about frigging time you called, asshole.”
But my voice is calm. “Jasper,” I say blandly. In my opinion, he hasn’t earned the right to be called Jazz any longer.
“Um, sorry, no. It’s Jazz.”
I try not to roll my eyes even though I know he won’t see, but it’s an epic fail. “Whatever.”
“I’m sorry I haven’t been in touch for a couple days. My mom’s been real sick. I was lookin’ after her, gettin’ her to the doctor, goin’ to the pharmacy, bringing JoJo back and forth to school, and stuff.”
“Mom caught JoJo’s strep throat and had to go to the ER because she couldn’t even swallow.” He stops talking for a second and then clears his voice. “Alls she could do was spit into a rag whenever she needed to swallow.”
Well, that’s definitely TMI, but I get the fucker-nelly revolting picture. “I’m sorry.”
“Not your fault, dude.”
And then there’s silence.
“Gonna take JoJo to the library after school tomorrow. But first I gotta stop by the cable company and pay up or we’re gonna lose our TV and internet at home. They already warned us like twice.”
“Want me to pick up Yolo at school and take her to the library?” I’m so freaking pissed off at him. Why am I offering to save his ass again?
“That’s cool of you to offer, but there’s a bus she can take to the library from her school. Could ya be waiting for her at the library, in case I get held up?”
“Of course.” I’m a Class A sucker.
“You’re such a cool pal.” Ugh—so not what I’m going for.
“I’m not gonna be at lunch tomorrow seein’ as I’ll probably be collecting my makeup work. So, I’ll see ya at the library. ‘Kay?”
I don’t say kkkk cuz it’s not even slightly cool. “Sure. The libes after school, it is.”
“Thank you, bro,” Jazz offers.
One more silence, and then I say, “Later.”
I have research to do.

Author Guest Post:
We have the pleasure to have Mia here to talk to us today about what inspired her to write about this subject matter. This is a very powerful and utterly sad guest post, so curl up with your tissues and give it a read.

Thanks so much for being here, Mia!

You say in your blurb this is a very touchy subject, and that is so true. What inspired you to write a story featuring this subject matter. 

Hello to my friends at Bayou Book Junkie! Thank you very much for welcoming me to your blog to discuss my upcoming YA LGBTQ contemporary fiction release, Love Spell that features a gender fluid teenage boy. Today I will tell you why I chose to write a novel that deals with such a difficult subject.

“As far back as he can remember, Chance has been ‘caught between genders.’ (It’s quite a touchy subject; so don’t ask him about it.)” 

This is a quotation from Love Spell’s blurb, which points out that Chance César’s gender identity is quite fluid. Some days, sixteen-year-old Chance feels as if his inner identity is male, which is in line with the sex he was born as, and other days he feels as if his true self is female. His uncertainty confuses him. In fact, it haunts him. And he is not alone in feeling haunted by his uncertainty with regard to his gender identity. Many transgender and gender non-conforming people experience pain and confusion, leading an over proportionate percentage of this population to attempt suicide.

I recently read some information in an article from the Los Angeles Times (January 28, 2014) that I think you’ll agree is disturbing.  “A whopping 41% of people who are transgender or gender-nonconforming have attempted suicide sometime in their lives, nearly nine times the national average….” This piece of information was gathered in a study several years ago. The LA Times article went on to explain that in a new study, there is more startling information.  “Researchers from the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and the Williams Institute at UCLA School of Law found that the risk of attempting suicide was especially severe for transgender or gender nonconforming people who had suffered discrimination or violence, such as being physically or sexually assaulted at work or school.
Among transgender people who became homeless because of bias against their gender identity, 69% said they had tried to kill themselves. Out of those who had been turned away by a doctor because they were transgender or gender-nonconforming, 60% had attempted suicide sometime in their lives, the survey found.”

These statistics are horrifying and unacceptable.

I am sure that you are aware of the recent news stories about transgender teenagers who have commit suicide.

Leelah’s story.

When Leelah (Joshua Alcorn) informed her parents that she wanted to live as a girl, they refused to accept it on religious grounds. Although they told her they loved “him” unconditionally, conditions were clearly imposed by her conservative Christian parents.

Leelah was struck by a tractor-trailer on the interstate highway four miles from her home in an apparent suicide. Included in Leelah’s suicide note was this message, "Please don't be sad, it's for the better. The life I would've lived isn't worth living in ... because I'm transgender. I could go into detail explaining why I feel that way, but this note is probably going to be lengthy enough as it is. To put it simply, I feel like a girl trapped in a boy's body, and I've felt that way ever since I was 4. I never knew there was a word for that feeling, nor was it possible for a boy to become a girl, so I never told anyone and I just continued to do traditionally 'boyish' things to try to fit in."

Leelah suffered needlessly. She suffered alone. She believed, as do so many others in her shoes, that life as a transgender person isn’t worth living. And she ended her life before she had a chance to find out.

Let’s look at another story in the news….

Taylor’s story.

Taylor was also a transgender high school girl, driven to suicide by bullying at school and online. “I’ve lost tons of friends, tons. And it’s been hell. I go to school every day, and I get my lunch and I sit down alone.” ( Feeling isolated and hopeless, she felt suicide was the only solution.

Blake’s story.

Blake Brockington, a transgender activist, also found the solution to his troubles by ending his life.

Blake was a fighter who had seemingly pushed through his pain, past the disapproval of family and friends, to the point that he was a role model. In fact, Blake was South Carolina’s first transgender high school homecoming king. As an activist he was interviewed in by the Charlotte Observer, and he detailed the difficulty he had in coming out to his family and friends, many of whom he had lost contact with.  Blake was open about his struggles, which could have been a contributing factor to his vulnerability.

He also ended his young life.

Ash has a tragic story that ends with his suicide.

As does Zander.

And Melonie.

*More than 50% of Transgender youth will have had at least one suicide attempt by their 20th birthday.
(Youth Suicide Prevention Program)

Some of these trans teens experienced no acceptance of their gender identity by family and friends in their short lives. Others experienced a degree of acceptance from either family or friends, but often not from both. These kids have grown up suffering with the deep confusion of being intrinsically  “wrong”. This underlying feeling of being in conflict with society due to their very nature—in conflict with their religious beliefs, societal expectations, family values, and more—is not something that every teen can endure. Despite the fact that a transgender teen appears to have accepted him or herself, the pain of being somehow unnatural or immoral is too great to endure. And it seems like a perilous moment arrives for many of them during which the pain cannot be tolerated.

Chance César, the main character in my new release Love Spell, is a 17-year-old boy who has struggled with gender confusion for as long as he can remember. Driven to conduct online research to find a label for his gender identity, Chance has come to the conclusion that, despite the fact that he feels like a girl as often as he feels like a boy, he does not want to physically transition to become a woman, nor does he want to fully live his life as a woman. Nonetheless, he experiences an urge to define himself—an urge that causes further turmoil in his mind, as he is unable to categorize his gender into one of the two predetermined binary genders. Despite his inability to draw a conclusion of “what he is” in terms of gender, he finds that building a relationship with Jazz Donahue, and learning to focus on the less surface issues in his life, leads him in the direction of self-acceptance.

Chance is sassy and snarky but he is as vulnerable as a teenage boy can be. With few friends and apathetic parents, his gender identity issues wreak havoc with his sense of security in life.

Could a series of negative circumstances cause Chance to seek refuge the same way that Leelah and Taylor and Blake did? By ending a life of confusion and ridicule and shame? Societal awareness of this situation is the first step in preventing this kind of tragedy. And that is why I wrote a story about what is a touchy subject.

Mari's review:

*copy provided by author/publisher via Pride Promotions in exchange for an honest review*

This was such a heartwarming story. If anything I wish the last part would've been longer, though, as we don't get all that much of Chance and Jazz together as a couple, but it was good, really good. And really, Mia Kerick does a superb job at capturing all of Chance's feelings of inadequacy because he doesn't fit in a 'label'.

Chance is sassy and strong and stands for himself, even if it causes him trouble. And considering where he lives, a little rural town in NH, he's constantly bullied. He just has one friend, Emily, who is awesome btw, and then meets Jasper, who tells him he admires Chance and finds him pretty, and he just falls head over heels for him. How could he not, when no one ever said that to him before?

Of course the fact that Jazz is sweet and kind and loyal and handsome to boot, helps. So Chance with the help of his inseparable friend Emily, decide to follow a few rules to get Jazz to fall in love with Chance. Only it won't be that easy since Jasper is going through quite a bit with his mother and his sister and work and school. So yeah, not an easy path. 

The story was engaging and fun. I wasn't too sure about Chance at the start, but he won me over and by the end, I was so happy for him.  A fabulous book all around!

Spotlight: Michael's Awakening by Jaclyn Osborn ~ (Cover, Blurb + Excerpt)

Spotlight: Michael's Awakening by Jaclyn Osborn ~ (Cover, Blurb + Excerpt) 

Book Information:
Author Name: Jaclyn Osborn
Book Title: Michael's Awakening
Tagline: Who could ever love a beast?
Published by: Encompass Ink
Release Date June 20th


One moment…that’s all it takes for life as you once knew it to change irrevocably. For Michael Kingston, that moment was when he first laid eyes on Gabriel. In his life, Michael had only known darkness, leaving behind a broken shell of a man. Unspeakable memories of his childhood constantly plagued him, causing him to disconnect emotionally from the world. No one had ever shown him love; therefore, he believed that he was unworthy of it. And then everything changed.
Gabriel Greyson had always been different. Growing up in a small, Bible thumping town, his preferences for men, make-up, and fashion made him an outcast. But, with the support and love of his family, he overcame obstacles that were thrown his way and rose above the intolerance. He danced to the beat of his own glammed-out drum and refused to believe that he was anything other than ultra-fabulous. Working as a beautician, he had a job he adored and felt that everything was perfect in his life. Everything except for true love.
When these two unlikely men meet, sparks fly. For the first time in Michael’s life, he feels like he can overcome the darkness inside him. Gabriel gives him hope and slowly brings him out of the shadows, showing him that even the darkest of souls can be redeemed. But there are secrets that Michael keeps locked away. Will Gabriel see past the torments of Michael’s past, or will he turn away from him when he discovers the truth? After all, who could ever love a beast?

Short Excerpt:

It was then that I knew: Gabriel would either be my ultimate salvation or my utter downfall.
Only he could affect me in such a way. From the moment I had first laid eyes on him, something had clicked in my head, as if all the moving gears had clanked and stopped right before starting up again, this time in perfect synchronization. I brushed my thumb across his bottom lip as my heart went wild in my chest.
Gabriel’s lips were like that metaphorical cliff that appeared in our minds when we were faced with a decision that would ultimately alter our lives, a decision that would forever change who we are. I had suspected from the beginning that he possessed a power that would tie me to him forever if I were to get too close. His beauty and grace had first caught my eye, but now his inner fire had scorched my soul.
If I were to claim Gabriel’s lips with mine, I would never be the same again.

Blog Tour: Suit Yourself by Susan Mac Nicol ~ (ARC Review, Excerpt + Giveaway)

Blog Tour: Suit Yourself by Susan Mac Nicol ~ (ARC Review, Excerpt + Giveaway)


Scarred both physically and emotionally after a motorcycle accident, twenty-five year old ex fashion model and porn star Oliver Brown is about to be stripped bare by flamboyant twink Leslie Scott—and they’ll rebuild love from the bottom up. 


Twenty-five year old Oliver Brown is addicted. Two years ago, he was at the height of his career as “Nicky Starr,” fashion model, porn actor, partier without peer. Then came the accident. Hiding his scars, both emotional and physical, he’s gone into hiding. But fine clothing is some solace. A new suit by Debussy? Better even than a ride on his motorcycle Hulk or all the things he used to give and take on camera. 

Enter Leslie Scott, the flamboyant, dark-haired, heel-and-tiny-short-wearing twink sent to deliver Oliver’s newest fix. A firecracker, Leslie is dapper, generous, in touch with his feminine side but all man, and as gorgeous as any garment ever made. He makes Oliver dream of ending his reclusion, of recapturing a future forever denied him. But for that to happen, Leslie would have to strip him to the bone. Only then will they rebuild life from the bottom up.

Excerpt 3
Oliver’s arrived home horny and needs to relieve the tension…

The film, titled The War Whore, started and Oliver wondered if he was a narcissist watching his own movie. However, he wanted to see Adam in action, imagine it was Leslie above him, see those cobalt blue eyes staring into his as he fucked him. His cock rose and Oliver sighed in satisfaction as his hands got busy. There was something to be said about living alone and having the privacy to jack off in your own living room using the lube that was scattered around the place.
Through lazy eyes, he watched himself lying on a medieval divan, dressed in an opened leather waistcoat, chest hair showing. He remembered that those pants had been the most uncomfortable leather ones he’d ever worn. They were opened to show his cock upright and purpled, already glistening and definitely ready for the slave who stood in front of him. Adam smiled invitingly on screen and dropped his tunic to reveal an impressive dick and a slim, muscled body. He also had a backside that you could bounce coins off. The man’s arse had been bite-worthy, and Oliver’s mouth filled with saliva as he imagined what Leslie’s would be like. From what he’d seen today, the man had a tight, bubble arse and Oliver really wanted in.
Languid strokes to his cock made his pulse race; his mouth opened and his heavy breaths echoed in the room. He watched the events playing out on screen, as Adam straddled him and then rammed down on his cock with a fierce battle cry and began to bounce up and down like a yo-yo. Oliver closed his eyes and imagined that scene, but with Leslie in the slave role. Black bangs over blue eyes framed a face that was pale and delicate, yet with the strength of a man’s jaw and square cheekbones that made no mistake about the gender of the person currently riding Oliver’s cock.

This is a website intended for over eighteens only and if you are easily offended, we suggest you stay away.

What a fabulous story! I hadn't read a book by Susan Mac Nicol before, but I plan to remedy that ASAP. I loved her writing, it was just about as captivating as Oliver and Leslie. Although I have to admit I have a soft spot for Oliver, despite wanting to slap some sense into him a couple (or more) times. *g*

Leslie was every bit the diva, but at the same time so down to earth, loving and sweet and so loyal to those he cared about. Oliver was the silent and not so strong, hiding so many insecurities left by his scars and his accident. I just wanted to cuddle him and tell him it would be alright.

I just adored the way Leslie and Oliver's relationship blossomed and with the incredible chemistry between them, how could it not? Although the path of true love is not without obstacles, it's more than worth the journey.

Definitely a story to be savored and cherished and be read again and again.

                                          MEN OF LONDON SERIES PREVIOUS BOOKS

One of London’s up-and-coming chefs, Eddie Tripp has just the right recipe to drive tragedy from the mind of Gideon Kent—and leave him senseless with desire. 

From Soho to Norwich, there’s no escaping love. 

An award-winning chef with his own restaurant and an inexhaustible passion, Gideon Kent once had everything. Then came tragedy. It stole more than Gideon’s home. He hasn’t cooked since. 

Until Eddie Tripp. Fun-loving and vivacious, the Norfolk redhead’s a real up-and-comer in Gideon’s kitchen—and other places. Slim where Gideon’s broad, easy-going where Gideon is growly, he and Gideon seem polar opposites, and yet Eddie conjures flavors that would tempt anyone with a taste for perfection. The sauce of love is already simmering, and this pair is about to dine on the most delicious dish they’ve ever prepared. Because Eddie’s been Gideon’s missing ingredient all along.

The murder of a shared friend leads a high-profile investigator and a psychic into a mystery involving lies, blackmail, BDSM—and into each other’s arms. 


From Charing Cross to Waterloo, there’s no escaping love. 


28-year-old Draven Samuels has a tragic past, but as an investigator with a high-profile London company he now gets what he wants. Tough, sarcastic, and sceptical, he has no patience for lies and even less for people who waste his time. Even if they’re as beautiful as the wild and dark-haired Taylor Abelard. Especially when they’re talking over the body of a murder victim. 


Psychic Taylor Abelard is used to people calling him a freak. He can see past events and feel the ghostly vibrations of people close to him who’ve passed on. It’s why he doesn’t get too close to the living. But this time, against his better judgment, despite Draven’s mocking rejoinders, Taylor will get closer than ever before. The mystery of a dead friend will lead the two men down a dark and seedy trail of blackmail and lies. Add in the heartbreak of a family tragedy, and events lead them straight into each other’s arms. By the end of this night, all their demons will have risen—and been banished with the dawn.

Susan Mac Nicol is a self confessed bookaholic, an avid watcher of videos of sexy pole dancing men, self confessed geek and nerd and in love with her Smartphone. This little treasure is called ‘the boyfriend’ by her long suffering husband, who says if it vibrated, there’d be no need for him. Susan hasn’t had the heart to tell him there’s an app for that…

She is never happier than when sitting in the confines of her living room/study/on a cold station platform scribbling down words and making two men fall in love. She is a romantic at heart and believes that everything happens (for the most part) for a reason.  She likes to think of herself as a ‘half full’ kinda gal, although sometimes that philosophy is sorely tested.

Lover of walks in the forest, theatre productions, dabbling her toes in the cold North Sea and the vibrant city of London where you can experience all four seasons in a day , she is a hater of pantomime (so please don’t tar and feather her), duplicitous people, bigotry and self righteous idiots. 

In an ideal world, Susan Mac Nicol would be Queen of England and banish all the bad people to the Never Never Lands of Wherever -Who Cares. As that’s never going to happen, she contents herself with writing her HEA stories and pretending, that just for a little while, good things happen to good
