Welcome! What an awful week news-wise. I’m still broken up about Robin Williams’ passing. You know how there’s a small handful of celebrities that feel like they’re “yours”? Like no one understands them or appreciates them like you do? Robin was one of those guys for me. He reminded me a bit of my brother, a bit of my father, and a bit of several favorite uncles all put together. I’ll miss him for a long long time.
Work in Progress News ~ Still working on Jackson. I didn’t get a whole lot done this week though. I think my muse is on an extended vacation. I have no excuse, so I won’t even bother trying to reason why. sigh At what point do I have to call myself a “Former Author”?
Favorite Song of the Week ~ AKNU. Three brothers. What do you guys think?
Tweet of the Week ~
If I did have a thigh gap, I’d probably just use it to sneak candy into the movie theater.

What I’m reading ~ A new Cameron Dane book!
Ex-con David Joyner returns home knowing he must atone for his past sins. Working at an animal shelter, David keeps his head down, desperate to prove to a hostile town he’s a new man. The one time David looks up, he spots fellow motel dweller Ben, and is terrified by his attraction to the man. David doesn’t want to feel anything. He can only damage what he loves.
On a forced vacation, PI Ben Evans accepts a job to tail a recently released prisoner. What begins as an easy gig turns complicated when Ben, a controlled man, can’t deny the pang of empathy he feels for his subject, David. Ben can’t suppress his aggressive sexual desires whenever he’s near David either.
Repeatedly crossing paths, David and Ben do their best to fight their growing attraction. When passion explodes, and secrets are revealed, both men have to conquer inner demons in order to accept the others love.
Someone has turned the tables on David, though, stalking him and leaving threatening notes. Will anyone believe David if he tells? And when David’s stalker raises the stakes, can Ben find the man who has become his world in time to save their love?
Today’s Tearjerker ~ Be sure to watch to the end.
“How do you feel?”
She stretched, then ran her hands down his arms until her fingers linked with his. “I feel great.”
“Not hungover at all?” He brought their hands tighter around her, hugging her against his front.
“My throat hurts, I must have been talking too loud. A bit of a headache, but not too bad.”
“That’s good, because I want to take you out.”
She was quiet for so long, he started to wonder if he’d blown it. No matter, he’d do it again in a heartbeat.
“Yeah, you know. We could start with lunch…maybe some putt-putt golf.” He stroked the soft skin of her stomach. “I have three days off from work, and I know that you’re…you know…unobligated.”
“I don’t know,” she rolled onto the mattress beside him and propped herself on her elbows. “My momma warned me about boys. They just want one thing.”
“Did she warn you about firemen?” He kissed the tip of her nose.
She giggled. “I know they handle some powerful hoses.”
