On a Different Mission: A Bisexual Awakening MM Romance Releases!

I’ll tell you all a little something about the inspiration behind Devin’s character and the story. It’s something that’s mentioned a bit in the first chapter as well. I started watching the new Queer Eye show about a year ago (it’s so uplifting!) and they did an episode on Jonathon Van Ness, who is nonbinary (goes by they/he/she according to their Instagram profile).
In the episode, the show went back to their high school, where they were a cheerleader. I was surprised when they talked about the bullying they suffered. JVN is such an uplifting person on the show and the fact that they were able to be so positive in spite of all that really moved me. So, there you go😁

And Now, the Teaser:

“He’s been talking about wearing a skirt or a dress forever, you know.” She threw a look toward the stage. “I think Axel is helping him be himself finally.”

“I’m right here, you know.” He rolled his eyes. “It wasn’t all Axel. It was time.” He focused on me. “I’ve been daring myself to be me since I came down here freshman year and now that my senior year is almost over, I figured it’s now or never, you know?”

I nodded. “Yeah, I know. Senior year sort of makes the real world and what you want to do and be the rest of your life real.” Boy, did I know that. Graduation couldn’t some soon enough.

Layla stepped through the bar and stopped at us, her cropped blonde hair held off her forehead by a pair of black barrettes. “Hey, everyone.” With a grin, she held her hand up.

“Layla, good you’re here.” Olivia wrapped her up in a quick hug, then freed her. “What do you think of Devin?” She stepped back and held her hand out to him.

“Oh my. I hardly recognized you.” Layla gave him the once over. “Stand up for me.”

With his cheeks flushing, he slid off his barstool and turned around.

“You are hot. If I didn’t know what equipment you had under that skirt, I might be jealous of my boy Brandon here.” She sniggered.

“Don’t even think about it.” I shook my head, chuckling.

Axel hopped off the stage and strode to us. “Hey, Dev, it’s time, man. Let’s do this.” He patted Devin’s arm.

“Yeah, okay.” Devin planted a quick kiss on my cheek, then jogged up to the stage.

“So, are you nervous for him?” Layla bumped her shoulder on mine, then ordered herself a beer from the bartender.

“Yeah, a little.” I kept my focus on the stage, on Devin snatching the mic and flipping his longs bangs to the side. Something happened to him when he got behind a mic. It was like he became someone else with more confidence and the slightly awkward Devin disappeared. I wasn’t sure which one I liked more. Did I have to choose? Hell no, I could have them both.
