Blurb:

When starting over means taking chances.

Luke Anderson was in love once. It didn’t end well. In fact, it ended terribly when he discovered his boyfriend indulging in a quick hook-up on New Year’s Eve. Since then, he’s gotten affection from trivial gay bar hook-ups with no strings attached. It’s safe. It’s easy. It’s fun. Now graduated from Arizona State University and beginning a new job in a Tempe, Arizona, high-tech company, he feels like his life is starting over.

Jax Meyer is not completely happy with his current relationship. After attending a class with Luke in the fall of their senior year, he now finds himself attending the new college grad bootcamp class at the same high-tech company as Luke. He’s been given a second chance. It’s time to take charge and do what he didn’t have the guts to do at college.

Jax has Luke’s full attention from the moment they see each other in the lobby on their first day at work. Luke finds Jax incredibly hot, after all. When Jax sits next to Luke in class and dominates his time with flirtatious comments and suggestive touching, Luke believes Jax is interested in more than a friendly relationship. But when Jax admits to having a girlfriend, Luke’s confusion with the situation grows. In order to have what they both want, Jax has to first figure himself out and Luke has to be willing to take a chance.

New Yaoi, M/M Romance Book Cover – Secrets

Yaoi, M/M Romance Character, Christian from Secrets

Okay, so it’s in the very early stages, but I’m working on the cover for my new Yaoi, M/M Romance book, Secrets. The first round of edits are done!

So far, all I’ve got is Christian’s face (because that’s always what I like to draw first). Here’s a picture, minus a few things I still need to add:)

So, who is Christian? He’s a bad boy rocker, who can be incredibly loving if you win his heart. He is charismatic on the outside and appears  confident and even a bit cocky, when in fact, he’s a broken soul struggling to become the man he should have been.

Girls swoon over him, especially when he’s onstage, but as he tells Logan, they’ve never quite held his attention.  He’s living a hard life of fast women, motorcycles and booze.

The Christian Logan fell in love with in high school was smart and studious, Logan’s best friend and next-door neighbor. But Christian lost his way after his father died. Logan’s not sure what to make of him now…

Live Action Yaoi

Tuakumi X Gii Kiss - Takumi-KunSo I’ve noticed lately on YouTube, much to my delight, some Japanese films that appear to be what I’d refer to as “Live Action Yaoi”. Now maybe I’m coming into this phenomenon really late and all you other fangirl and fanboy types have already drooled all over these things, but I’m hoping to see them on Netflix or even Crunchyroll sometime soon;) (If they’re already there, tell me!)

I’ve started watching one called, Soshite, Harukaze ni Sasayaite, or maybe Takumi-Kun Series, I can’t tell what the name is by the video title;) And I’m very intrigued. Sure, it’s a bit mushy as gay movies go, but it’s also very sweet. And if we like yaoi, that’s what we’re looking for, right? This story in particular is based off this shy dude who was molested, I think, by his older brother and is the love interest for your typical very popular dude. They’re in college and share a room – how convenient:) Gee, I think I’ve seen that somewhere before (like in my own book The Obsession, LOL). And so the popular guy, Gii, makes his feelings known and protects Takumi in true yaoi, seme fashion.

It looks like the guys don’t do too much in terms of sex except for a stolen kiss here or there and lots of gushy “I love you’s”. Of course, I can always hope. And as I peruse YouTube, I think I’m seeing a few of these things with a bit more racy content. There’s one called, Pure, that seems to go a bit, ahem, deeper.

Let’s get some discussion going about this – do you like these or yaoi anime better? Where are these coming from – please enlighten me a bit more:) And what’s up with this? Can we petition Netflix and Crunchyroll to show them if they don’t already? If I seem a bit daft with respect to these things, give me a break – I just found them!

And so, here’s the first part of the Takumi-Kun Series (if that’s what it’s called):
