Publication Date & Length: June 27, 2016 – 117 pgs
Greg Dwyer and Kyrie Li are living the glorious couple life in New York City. Or are they? When struggling actor Kyrie lands a modeling job, he’s ecstatic to have extra cash to spend on his best-friend-turned-boyfriend.
Of course, Greg is suspicious Anders Berglund, the gorgeous and androgynous Swedish cover model the designers love to pair with Kyrie, is after his man. And maybe Kyrie encourages a growing closeness with the guy?
Greg is probably to blame if Kyrie is drawn to the openly gay and seriously beautiful Andy. With Andy, Kyrie can be himself, as loud and proud as he’s always been. But Greg’s sexuality stays firmly locked in the closest except when he’s with Kyrie’s supportive family or alone with the man he loves.
To make matters worse, Greg’s out-of-touch mom meets with financial ruin and moves in with the couple, forcing him into the closet in his own home.
Can Greg find a way to stand up to Mommy Dearest and win back a love he fought so hard to reach? He discovers the road to pride begins at home and with accepting oneself first. Otherwise, it’s just a dead-end street.
This is book four in this series and it is a run on from book three. Or maybe I should say continuous of book three.
Kyrie and Greg are back together again but only a year and a half after they got together. You would think they had surpassed all of the rough areas in their relationship when they finally admitted their feelings and came out and told Kyrie’s family and ex wife but that is not the case.
Greg cannot get over his fear of coming out to others so he hides his relationship with Kyrie behind closed doors and does not let the outside world in, including his own mother. This is the cause of all the drama that follows these two men.
In this book Kyrie and Greg both have to learn that their is give and take in relationships. Greg needs to learn to that is ok to be himself and love who he loves regardless of what anyone else thinks and Kyrie needs to learn that people come out when they are ready and not on his time table. They both need to learn patience and trust. The question is will they learn it time or will they wait till it is too late, in more ways then one.
I cannot wait for book five too come out and find out what happens with Ander’s. It should be another exciting read. Great job on another amazing book K Vale.

K. Vale is a pseudonym/pen name for Goodreads author Kimber Vale for her M/M genre books.
Kimber Vale is an avid reader, writer and gardener. She worked as an RN once upon a time, but is currently a stay-at-home mom to three busy hobbits. She is fortunate to have an understanding husband who never refuses to help with her “writing research.” He answers questions like, “What do you think eyeballs taste like?” and, “Does the term ‘Cock-Rockets’ sound more like a joke or an explosively good time?” with equal consideration and without batting an eye.
Kimber enjoys crafting in a number of genres, including both gay (under K. Vale) and straight erotic romance, horror, bizarro, and sci/fi. Dark themes frequently creep their way into her stories, but she loves a good romance and is sure to give her MCs their much-deserved happily-ever-after once she is done abusing them
