Tyler is an up and coming movie star when a scandal of epic proportions hits. It’s a minor, or major, mishap from his youth when he was 16 come back to haunt him. He decides to leave town, let his lawyer brother take care of things, and go hideaway at the lake house.

Josh used to have a HUGE crush on Tyler’s brother Ryan (said lawyer). He’s been pining away for years and needs to stop. So he takes a much needed vacation to the lake.

What should be an fantastic “meet cute” of a reunion is a fumble of mishaps that eventually see Josh and Tyler playing at pretend boyfriends. Until they’re not playing anymore.

It’s time to see if sarcastic, in your face, takes no crap from anybody Tyler and slow down enough for Josh and if beige, low key, doormat, Josh can rise up for Tyler.

Shadows on My Soul by Leigh Jarrett Blurb:

 

Derek Lawrence is a player. There is no other way to phrase it. He’s been unstoppable since coming out in high school. Guy after guy, conquest after conquest. He isn’t looking for any kind of commitment from anyone. His life is perfect the way it is.

Except for one aspect. Derek has been in love with his best friend and business partner, Justin Leary, since the first day he set eyes on him over twenty years ago.

When an implication surfaces that Justin’s feelings for Derek might run far deeper than friendship, he considers approaching Justin about it. But before he can, one targeted act of violence followed by the aftermath of violation, challenges the depth of Derek’s love for Justin.

 

 

Leigh Jarrett is unabashedly queer, quirky, and passionate. Lover of antique stores, the smell of lye and oil as it turns to soap, and the sound of ocean breezes passing through the ancient Douglas firs of Vancouver Island’s Cathedral Grove. In her hometown of Kelowna, BC, Leigh is an advocate for the LGBTQ community, celebrating their diversity, and affirming their most basic of human rights—to love and be loved.
