Andy and Cory both find themselves heading toward love.
Andy will gladly become the partner of his boss’s son, consequences be damned. He knows he has to be patient with Cody, who is only beginning to accept being gay—which means no sex. The way Cody makes him ache with desire it’s going to be damn tough playing the waiting game.
Cody wants Andy, but it’s too soon. Anyone can pretend to be kind for a few months. He doesn’t want to take chances only to find himself without either family or mate. Still, his heart tells him Andy’s the one. At least, he thinks it’s his heart. It’s hard to tell when all his blood seems to rush from his brain to another part of his body whenever he even thinks about the man.
As the summer progresses, both will find the heat becoming intolerable. At some point, Cody will have to take a leap of faith. If he doesn’t, he might not only lose Andy, but his very self. A man can only masquerade so long.

The drama of humanity. We live, die, love, hate, win and lose in a never-ending variety of ways. Often those ways are heart-wrenching. Other times they are not.
Why do people make the choices they do? Why do some abuse power? How do the powerless learn to survive? Why do a few dare to be different, while others conform—and why are so many disturbed by those who don’t?These are the questions that have always haunted author Caddy Rowland. Those questions keep her pounding away at her keyboard, creating novels showcasing the sublime joy and bitter tragedy of being human.
Caddy has always been a nonconformist. She likes to push the proverbial envelope when it comes to characterization and world building. Heroes have warts; villains have soft spots. Main characters don’t always learn their lessons because all too often we don’t, either. There isn’t always a happy ending, but sometimes there is. Otherwise she’d be predictable.
She writes for readers who like to think and feel; who like their stories to be raw, graphic, unpredictable, “real” and sometimes brutal. For readers who like their boundaries challenged; to be shown how rarely life decisions are truly black and white, but instead shades of grey.
Think of a carnival midway with books instead of rides. She asks you make sure you’re the minimum height if you plan on riding alone. You must also leave prejudices and inhibitions behind the entry gate. If you can’t, Rowland’s reads might be a tad much for you. Don’t worry. There are plenty of safer reads out there. Just step out of the line and find a more appropriate book for your reading enjoyment.
No, Caddy Rowland’s novels aren’t for everyone. But then again, they just might be for you.
