Melt into the desert,
bleed into the dawn, follow the melody, the music knows the way.


Identical in appearance, twins Winter and Tripp are as

different as night and day when it comes to everything but the music they’ve spent the bulk
of their lifetimes composing. Now they’ve attained the fame they always hoped for, and it’s
as empty and meaningless as the remains of route 66, and about as broken too. Would help
if Winter could see it. Tripp’s sure he’ll lose his shit completely the next time some random
groupie leaps on the hood of his car and begs to take a selfie, but to Winter, every night is a
party, he lives for the crazy hookups, lives for the crazy, period.

Another place they differ.

Tripp would kill for one season to slow down. Just
three months where he and Zakk could melt into obscurity and be whomever they wanted,
together. Only Zakk’s band, Tattered Angel, is on fire too and it’s starting to seem like the
music he’s always loved is hell-bent on keeping him from exploring love of a different kind.
Last year’s Rocktoberfest was an amazing triumph, this year, it’s starting to feel like the road
to the desert is burning him alive.

Would be so easy to slip off across the sand, melt
into a dune on the back of some strange, psychedelic serpent, never to be heard from again.
If only there was a way to ensure Zakk took that last ride with him.

Bleeding Dawn is part of the multi-author The
Road to Rocktoberfest 2022 series. Each book can be read as a standalone, but why not read
them all and see who hits the stage next? Hot rockstars and the men who love them, what
more could you ask for? Kick back, load up your kindle and enjoy the men of


“Okay, I’m sitting, my supper will apparently have to remain
raw a little longer.”

“It’s all for a good cause, I assure you.”

“It better be, I skipped breakfast.”

“So nibble a graham cracker and open your ears. Don’t
try telling me you don’t have any when Winter said you have s’mores at least three times a
week when you’re home.”

Huffing, Tripp yanked the drawer open and snatched the
package from inside.

“Thank you. Now, they need small shows, we need some
soft runs on the new material, so I was thinking…”

“No, hell no. Fuck you for even thinking we should go back
on the road again. I just got a new couch. We haven’t even broken it in yet. Not a single

“Thought that’s what you and Winter would be writing
the new songs on.”

“We have, doesn’t mean we’ve made a suitable imprint

“Okay, guess we’ll put off working the kinks out. Too
bad. Jesse suggested we invite Riley and his crew to give them a chance to work on their
new material. I hear Dez and Zakk have almost two albums worth of material. It’s a good
idea, if you ask me. Oh, and get this, Saint’s Seduction reached out to Dez, again, and tried
to get him to come back and play for them. The way I heard it; he never took the call. James
gave them the flat ‘no’ Dez had conveyed to him the previous time and hung up on them.”

“Can’t say I blame them, the guy is talented.”

“If you think so, why do you two end up foaming at the
mouth every time you’re in proximity to one another? I can practically hear you snarling
from across the room.”

Tripp sighed, ‘cause he’d asked himself that for a couple of
months now and what he kept coming back to was a relationship he didn’t know what to do

He was jealous.

Not of anything musical when it came to Dez’s ability and
experience, but of the man himself and the time he spent with Zakk. Even the knowledge
that Dez was dating Riley didn’t dull the possessiveness he felt towards a man he was barely
lucky enough to see six times a year.


Something clicked in his brain, along with a voice telling
him to stay the fuck outta his own way before he fucked things up, again.

“Are you saying it would be us, Tattered Angel and Wild
Child?” Tripp asked, excitement beginning to surge through him.


“And who the hell would book that insanity?”

“James and Russ are raring to be unleashed on the
project, but there are a few hiccups to iron out.


“Who would headline?”

“We’ll rotate, everyone should be good with that.”

“Band members are, a few of the venues are not.”

Why did it sound like he was chewing? He’d better not be
eating anything good after the way this conversation had derailed Tripp’s meal.

“Hey, did you hear what I said about the

Tripp pulled the phone away from his ear, scowling at it for
several seconds before warily drawing it close again. “My ears were working just fine until
you bellowed in them!”

“Then pay attention, damn. Now, what do we do about
the venues.”

Grumbling beneath his breath, Tripp tried to figure out why
he was being asked to problem-solve for an issue he wasn’t completely on board with being
a part of yet. Still. It
would provide plenty of opportunities to spend time with Zakk. “Okay,
so, we give them what they want and schedule the rest of the rotations around it.”

“Good idea on the surface, but when you see the emails
I sent you about the locations, you’ll see why the issue came up.”

“Yea, okay, I’ll take a look. Next.”

relationship as soon as Dawson gets back.

wrong. Grady is devastated, and he’s throwing mixed signals about moving forward. Dawson

of death omens—which point to something stalking Grady. Can Dawson figure out who’s

What happens when friendship becomes love, and you’re
presented with seemingly impossible choices while the world is watching?



What happens when friendship becomes love, and you’re presented with seemingly
impossible choices while the world is watching?

Harvey, lead guitarist with Australian rock band,
HyperOctane, thought playing at Rocktoberfest would be the highlight of his career. He
didn’t expect a performance that would shape the rest of his life.


Admitting his feelings for Harvey was one of the hardest
things he’d ever done. Being rejected was crushing. He never thought he’d be living the
same heartbreak years later after finally finding love.


He broke Ravi’s heart but he couldn’t ignore the feelings he
had for Harvey. It wasn’t fair on Rav, and Bo knew it was for the best, but why did doing the
right thing have to hurt so much?


He wasn’t sure which was his biggest regret—hurting Ravi
all those years ago, or more recently giving in to temptation and having a one-night stand
with Bo. He’d always been close to his younger brother’s best friends, and now it seemed
he’d messed things up with both of them.

Now all three of them must confront their feelings for each
other. Why do things have to be so complicated?

Three of a Kind is a gay rock star romance featuring
second chances, friends to lovers, and menage.

Three of a Kind is part of the multi-author The Road to Rocktoberfest 2022 series.



“I think we need to talk.”

Oh God. Ravi hated the sound of those words.
They took him straight back to that night a year ago when Bo had said the very same thing
then proceeded to break his heart.

“Okkaay.” He crossed to the dresser and opened the drawer. He
fumbled with the contents as he willed his heart to slow down. Had Harvey sensed his
feelings for Bo? Or maybe Harvey just wasn’t ready for everything that had happened
between them. HyperOctane was knocking it out of the ballpark and there was so much
opportunity open to him. I’m probably holding him back.

“I can see your thoughts spinning from over here. Turn around,

He slowly turned and met Harvey’s eyes. Harvey patted the
bed beside him. “Come over here so we can talk properly. There’s something I need to tell

That little voice whispered in Ravi’s ear. He didn’t want to hear
whatever it was Harvey was going to say. Just the idea of it sent a wave of nausea through
him. Just when everything was going so well. Fuck, he’d been so happy lately.
Still, knowing he couldn’t put it off, he forced himself across the room.

The mattress sunk slightly under his weight, echoing his
equilibrium—he felt entirely off-balance.

“Why do I get a feeling this isn’t good news?” he finally

Harvey reached for his hand, his touch warm and familiar, but
Ravi didn’t take comfort. He couldn’t, not until he knew what this was about.

“I’m not really sure how to put this.” Harvey squeezed his
fingers, green eyes hooded, voice low. “I’ve never had to deal with anything like this before.
It’s about Bo.”

And there it was. Just like that Ravi’s heart plummeted. “I think
I know what you’re going to say. I’m sorry, Harvey.”

Harvey frowned. “I don’t think so. I—”

Ravi didn’t let him finish. He wanted to lay his cards on the
table—be the first one to air his feelings, not wait for Harvey to confront him with
accusations. “He’s such a great guy, and at first I was worried that our past would come
between us and I didn’t want the friendship to be destroyed. I mean you and me, and Bo
and Parker, we’ve been friends since forever and if Bo and I didn’t get along then it would
have tough for you and Parker. I wanted things to go back to how they were before Bo and I
hooked up.” Ravi sighed. “But when he moved in while you guys were playing up the coast, it
was just so natural to slip back into how things used to be—you know, hanging out after
work, doing household stuff.”

“It’s okay, Rav,” Harvey said, obviously hearing the panic in his

Ravi forced himself to take a deep breath. Harvey didn’t look
pissed which had to mean something, right? “But I want you to know, nothing happened
between us.” He’d never do the wrong thing by Harvey, and he needed him to know

“But you wanted it to,” Harvey said softly, not a question. A

Ravi felt his face flushing. He wanted to deny it, but he couldn’t
live with himself if he lied. He didn’t want to dishonour his true feelings for Bo, and Harvey
deserved the truth. “I would never cheat on you.”

Harvey lips turned up in a gentle smile. “I know you

“Are you mad?” Ravi asked, then held his breath, not sure if he
really wanted the answer.

Perfection comes in many
forms, and true courage is beautiful.


Preston Hawthorneonca-Stone is a warrior. In a fit of rage,
his father changed Preston’s life on a horrible day in 1994. Now a brain injury survivor,
Preston lives with his brother and their growing family. A recent addition to the Council of
Sorcery and Shifters, Preston has landed his dream job of working with animals.

Resurrected in 1995, Ridgely Walsh is dedicated to his job
and the tightknit group of friends he considers family. With his penchant for honesty, Ridgely

is the level-headed and sometimes hard-assed member of their little group. Ridgely doesn’t
play foolish games, and he accepts people at face value.

Although Ridgely yearns for a mate, nothing prepares him
for the moment he meets Preston. The beautiful jaguar-human hybrid with the big brown
eyes halts Ridgely in his tracks. Ridgely rapidly discovers his true purpose is to be a good
partner to his other half. Preston is equally taken with Ridgely but fears how the fallen knight
will handle his imperfections. Together, they must navigate the path Fate chose for them and
discover what it means to love unconditionally.


“That’s okay,” Ridgely said. “We’ll work around your
schedule. There are seven days in a week. We’ll work our dates into the nights you’re


The lack of enthusiasm in Preston’s voice had a chill running
through Ridgely. Although they hadn’t known each other long, they talked frequently, and
the man enchanted Ridgely. Until that moment, Ridgely had believed they were on the same
page, but perhaps he’d misjudged the situation. It was difficult to discuss it without being
able to see the emotions cross Preston’s face, and Ridgely wished he were with him.
However, there was no way Ridgely could wait until their date the following night to get the
answers he needed.

“Tell me what’s on your mind,” Ridgely prompted and
internally winced at the sharpness in his voice.

“I have challenges.”

“I know,” Ridgely responded softly. “That’s not a problem
for me.”

“Okay. I didn’t want to bombard you with them at the start

“Don’t worry so much. Talk to me.”

“I tire easily sometimes, and I also have insomnia. I’m
concerned that if I’m out most nights, I’ll get exhausted because I still have work and do my
therapies. I don’t want my schedule to overwhelm me, and it makes me sad because I want
to be with you. Maybe I should wait to do the school stuff.”

“Absolutely not, Dimples. There’s no reason we can’t
approach things casually. If we hung out and relaxed instead of dressing up for fancy
restaurants, would that make things easier for you? Because honestly, that sounds like more
fun anyway.”

“Maybe you could come to my house and have dinner with
my family.”

“And meet some cuddly kittens?”

“Yes. You could watch a movie with me in my room or take
a nap with me if you wanted. You wouldn’t even have to wear your clothes.”

Ridgely’s laughter was full-throated. “I’m going to need you
to repeat that when I can see your face.”

“I’m probably blushing, but I’ve already spent plenty of
time wondering what you look like naked.”

“I’ve used my imagination a lot lately too. Invite me to your
house for dinner.”

“Tomorrow, instead of you picking a restaurant?”

“All I need is an address.”

Snagging a pen from his desk drawer, Ridgely jotted down
the information he needed, then promised to call Preston later. After hanging up,
nervousness crept in. Although Ridgely loved the idea of a more relaxed avenue to get to
know Preston better, meeting a couple of Council leaders was intimidating.

“Okay, so I was curious before, but now I’m dying to meet
Preston,” Warner said.

Ridgely nearly jumped at the sound of Warner’s voice. So
swept up in talking to Preston, Ridgely had forgotten he wasn’t alone, which was nuts since
he’d shared an office with Warner for nearly two decades.


“Your voice and body language completely changed when
you spoke with your mate. I’ve never seen that side of you. You were practically

“Clearly, I was not, but I won’t pretend I don’t like him

“I feel so good about this now. I was nervous you’d over-
analyze every aspect of your relationship and drive your man crazy.”

“Glad to hear it because, clearly, your opinion of the
situation is what matters most,” Ridgely deadpanned.

“Seriously, I must meet this beautiful dimpled

“Find some patience, Warner. Or better yet, find your other

“I wish,” Warner replied, and Ridgely did too.

Ridgely wanted everyone to have Fate pair them with
someone as wonderful as Preston was turning out to be. And the fact that Preston was
pursuing a dream pleased Ridgely. It wasn’t enough for Preston to have only pieces of what
he wanted; Ridgely intended to ensure that his mate had everything.

down. The chaos messes with his game and sends his team headlong into a losing streak.
The last person he expects to pull him through it is Dante.

This season isn’t going the way Dante thought it would.
Gabe’s sexuality doesn’t faze him, but his own does. Dante’s always been a “what you see is
what you get” kind of guy, and having to hide his attraction to Gabe sucks. But so does
losing, and his teammate needs him, so he puts in the effort to snap Gabe out of his

He doesn’t mean to fall in love with the guy.

Getting involved with a teammate is a bad idea, but Dante
is shameless, funny, and brilliant at hockey. Gabe can’t resist. Unfortunately, he struggles to
share part of himself that he’s hidden for years, and Dante chafes at hiding their
relationship. Can they find their feet before the ice slips out from under them?

You miss 100 percent of
the shots you don’t take.


Ryan Wright’s new hockey team is a dumpster fire. He expects to lose games—not his heart.

Ryan’s laid-back attitude should be an advantage in
Indianapolis. Even if he doesn’t accomplish much on the ice, he can help his burned-out
teammates off it. And no one needs a friend—or a hug—more than Nico Kirschbaum, the
team’s struggling would-be superstar.

Nico doesn’t appreciate that management traded for
another openly gay player and told them to make friends. Maybe he doesn’t know what his
problem is, but he’ll solve it with hard work, not by bonding with the class clown.

It’s obvious to Ryan that Nico’s lonely, gifted, and cracking
under pressure. No amount of physical practice will fix his mental game. But convincing Nico
to let Ryan help means getting closer than is wise for Ryan’s heart—especially once he
unearths Nico’s sense of humor.

Will Nico and Ryan risk making a pass, or will they keep
missing 100 percent of the shots they don’t take?

Excerpt from WINGING IT

Dante waited in the lobby, curled into a chair that wasn’t
quite big enough to be comfortable. He kept his back to the flow of people and his nose
buried in his phone. Any other night, sure, he would be happy to sign autographs. Tonight…
his brain was going to endlessly replay the scene he’d just walked in on.

How had he not known Gabe was into men? It seemed
obvious now. Of course he never picked women up in bars or brought a girlfriend to a team
event. Dante felt stupid for not noticing.

Somehow Dante had stumbled onto a huge secret.

And now he had to work out what to do about it.

First, though, apparently he was going to think about
Gabe’s broad palm on his partner’s chest. Gabe was a big guy—two inches taller than Dante,
even if Dante was more solidly built. His partner had been clinging to Gabe’s muscular

He should stop thinking about it, but his brain was trying to
fill in details. Where had Gabe’s other hand been? Had it been placed on his partner’s thigh?
Had he been putting his weight on it to steady himself? Or maybe he’d used it to tilt the
man’s face to the right angle.

Dante exhaled sharply. This was really, really not his
business. Dwelling on it would not do him any favors. He needed to pretend everything was
normal. And obsessing about your teammate feeling up some guy—and kissing, can’t forget
the kissing—was not that.

So. Normal. He’d been sexiled by a roommate. That was
fine! It had happened before. Today, actually. He hoped Yorkie was having a better night
than Gabe.

Most importantly, sexiling was normal.

Was it hot in here?

Footsteps jarred him out of his spiral, and he looked up to
see Gabe walking toward him, head down, shoulders hunched. He didn’t exactly have the
look of the freshly laid about him.


Or, like, probably not.

Gabe dropped into the chair across from him. He was
loudly projecting that he would rather stand in front of fifty of Kitty’s slap shots than have
this conversation.

At least they were on even footing in that respect.

Dante put his phone away. “So, uh, sorry for cockblocking
Even if it’s kind of your fault. Who doesn’t
use the Do Not Disturb sign? Why didn’t you tell me to pound rocks when I asked to

Considering the circumstances, he kept a lid on these
criticisms. He could bring them up later, when Gabe didn’t look like he was about to puke all
over the hotel lobby.

“I wasn’t expecting it to be a problem,” Gabe said. He
slumped farther, but Dante thought his shoulders were relaxing too. “Did you strike out or

“Sort of. We passed her ex on the way back to her place
and she made it like ten more feet before she burst into tears. So we stopped at Dairy Queen
for ice cream, and then she went to the bathroom and fixed her makeup and we took a selfie
for her Instagram, and I came back here.”

The color returned to Gabe’s face and he met Dante’s gaze
for the first time since that hideously awkward moment upstairs. “Guess neither of us is
getting laid tonight,” he said, a little tentatively, like he wasn’t sure Dante would

“I won’t tell if you won’t.”

“Deal,” Gabe said. The lines of tension in his face
disappeared under a relieved half smile.

Good. Dante was glad they’d settled that. “Great.” He
yawned. “So can we go upstairs now? I’ve had just enough booze and ice cream to make me

When they got up to the hotel room, Dante said, “I wish
you’d told me you liked guys.” His shoes
thunked dully against the wall as he
kicked them off. “I wouldn’t have tried so hard to hook you up with chicks last season.” Or
last week.

Gabe stared at Dante’s shoes. Then he lined his own up
neatly under the desk. “It’s not something I advertise.”

“No shit.” Dante shimmied out of his jeans.

After a beat, Gabe said, “You’re being really cool about

Dante sat in the desk chair. He had a habit of saying the first
thing that came to mind, and right now that was
Actually, I’m kind of freaking out. He
needed to take his time. “I mean, obviously I’m not mad or upset or whatever.
I’m—accepting? Ugh, that’s a garbage word.” He huffed, frustrated with himself. “Look,
you’re… gay?”

The muscle at the hinge of Gabe’s jaw bunched. “Yeah.”

“Cool.” He drummed the fingers of his left hand on the
desktop, realized he was doing it, and forced himself to stop. “And obviously if you haven’t
told the team, you’re expecting some of them to be assholes. And that sucks. Because as far
as I’m concerned, my reaction? Is, like, a pretty low bar.”

Gabe rubbed the back of his neck. “I mean, it’s not like you
could come in and introduce yourself.”

If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em. Dante was losing his grip on reality. “Yeah, maybe not. You mind
if I shower now? I stink like dance club.”

“Sure. I’m just gonna….” Gabe picked up the television

The television came on, and a moment later Dante closed
the bathroom door behind him and started the water. Mechanically, he removed his clothes
and stepped under the spray. The hot water sluiced over him, washing away the sweat and
club grime and what had maybe been just a little too much hair gel.

But the image of Gabe kissing another man on the bed in
their hotel room stuck with him, and now, in relative privacy and naked, alone with his
thoughts, Dante was forced to confront the truth of his own semi.

“I did not see this coming,” he muttered as he reached for
his shampoo.

Tired of being lonely,
Hayden decides to take his music and his identity back. Will these transformations be worth
the risk, or will they destroy everything he’s ever worked for?


Hayden Koal’s life has been… different. He was just a boy
living on his grandpa’s Iowa farm when his parents whisked him off to LA and thrust him into
teenage stardom. Now that he’s an adult, he’s ready to make his own choices about his life,

his career, and his lovelife.

Erik Anderson has it all. A great job, friends that he loves
like family, and a love life that’s… well, okay maybe it isn’t perfect… but finding the right guy
isn’t easy. All that changes when he unexpectedly meets his celebrity crush, Hayden

Their love affair is fraught with trouble from the moment
they come together and both Hayden and Erik have tough decisions to make. Will they
choose to upend their lives or sacrifice their love?

#rockstar #first love #coming out


“What will you have?” he asked.

“Um, I usually get a Chocolate Mocha Supreme here, ’cause
you know… chocolate store.”

“Then I’ll have the same.”

He turned and waved at a woman who I assumed was the
manager, ordered our drinks, and asked for extra whipped cream.

Luckily, the way the store was designed, there was a small
alcove at the back where we could sit and talk in private without the staff staring at us. I was
already so self-conscious I thought I could break.

We sat in silence as the coffees were made and brought to our
table. “Thank you, Angela,” Hayden said, and I looked up in surprise that he actually knew
the woman’s name.

She blushed–a common reaction to Hayden, apparently–and
did a little curtsy before disappearing back around the corner. “I think she might have a little
crush,” I whispered, making him smile.

“She’s not who I want to impress,” he said, and then cringed.
“Sorry, that was cheesy.”

It was then I noticed he appeared to be nervous too. That
helped me feel a little better. I took a deep breath and let it out before asking what I really
needed to know if I was going to be able to settle down long enough to hang out with

“Why me?” I asked.

He smiled and answered, “Why not you?”

“’Cause I’m a nobody, and you’re Hayden Koal.”

He shook his head and took a drink of his coffee before
responding. When he pulled back, a mustache of whipped cream clung to his lip. “Everyone
thinks just ’cause I’m a pop star that I’m not a normal human being. I like you, or like what I
know about you. I just thought it’d be fun to go out and get to know someone, you know,

As he talked, the whipped cream began to run down the side
of his mouth, and I didn’t think he realized it was there until he went to touch where the
drip was. I laughed as he quickly wiped his face with his hand, then frantically began looking
for a napkin.

By the time he found one, his face was red as a beet. “So much
for first impressions.”

“Trust me,” I said, “that’s probably the best thing to happen.” I
took a drink and forced myself to get a mustache too, and when I drew back, he

“Is that what I looked like? God, I’m happy no one got a picture
of that. I’d never live it down.”

I used my tongue to lick the whipped cream off and laughed,
saying, “I thought it was cute. It could probably go a long way in improving your image.”

When I looked back at him, he was staring hungrily at me.
“Oh,” I said, realizing licking my lip like that probably seemed sexually suggestive.

Hayden shook his head as if trying to clear his thoughts. “Wow,
so, um, I’m… I think you’re very handsome, Erik, but I have to admit, this is the first real date
I’ve ever been on, well, with a guy. I mean, I’ve been on publicity dates, but you know, not
with someone I like. So…” He paused, then quickly added, “I’m not sure how to do this
without looking like a total loser.”

At that moment, he looked so vulnerable that I couldn’t help
but reach out and put my hand over his. “You’re doing fine. Not that I’m an expert or
anything, but the mustache thing could’ve been staged ’cause it was so cute. So, don’t sell
yourself short, at least not yet,” I said, laughing. That seemed to put him at ease.

He turned his hand over, letting our palms rest together, and I
felt a happy, warm zing shoot up my arm at the intimate contact. “Okay, then,” he said, and
his nervousness morphed into a confident smile. “Tell me about yourself.”

When we no longer have
the kids to keep us glued together, will there be enough left to make us


This is not a romance. This is what happens when life goes on, when
people grow and fall out of sync. Not out of love; some people are just meant to be.

Thomas at least hopes that is the case, even though he sometimes feels
like he’s clinging to his marriage by a brittle thread.

Frank clutches to the scraps that are left, knowing he’s the root cause of
Thomas’ grey hairs, their kids being hormonal monsters and his own sanity being
questionable at the best of times.

Gabriel needs to stop worrying and take control of his life, but with
young kids and a body that refuses to do what it’s supposed to do—to sustain and nourish
and build muscle to keep bones in place—his feels like a traitor, laughing in his face when he
struggles to keep it together. He knows he is loved. His kids are everything. But his marriage
feels like a distant memory, and he’s tumbling from one disaster into another. It’s

Bruno thought this holiday would bring them closer together as a
family. Isn’t that what a trip abroad is supposed to do? Four weeks in the Swedish mosquito-
infested countryside, sharing a farm with strangers. He should have known better.

Life is good. But the rest? Lies. All lies.

This is the first of two books following a lifelong friendship between two families. A slice of
life from two established M/M couples, children galore, stray sheep, heat, sizzle and
laughter, this is what happens after the HEA.

The second book, Life is Right Here, will be published in December 2022.


“You know, Thomas, there’s no need to feel jealous,” Bruno
said softly.

“I’m not.” Thomas laughed again, but it sounded fake.

“Well, I am.” Bruno admitted with a touch of
cockiness. “I’m fucking raging that he can talk to Frank, this dude he’s just met, about things
he struggles to talk to me about. He should be talking to me. Shouldn’t

“You just said I shouldn’t feel jealous!” Thomas almost
shrieked, gripping the worktop until the wood creaked under his knuckles.

Bruno grinned. Classic psychology. Worked every time.

“You are jealous, and that’s the way it should be.
You have a very, very handsome husband who loves you to the point that he can barely see
through the love haze the two of you have going on. Frank adores you. You just don’t always
see it, but that doesn’t mean he can’t talk to other people, have close friends, talk about
things that he might not be able to talk to you about. It’s healthy and normal.”

“Bloody doctors, you’re all the same, talking a load of crap.”
Thomas was smiling underneath the stiff pose he was still holding. Thank God.

“Yup, it’s all textbook doctor bullshit, mate.” Bruno laughed.
“And I wasn’t lying about being jealous. But why would Gabriel even look twice at some
random Norwegian dude when he has all this prime Italian quality stud at home?” He
slapped his chest like some ridiculous alpha male, and Thomas chuckled and shook his

“You’re such an idiot.”

“I know.” Bruno smiled, taking a step forward so he could pat
Thomas’s shoulder. “I wouldn’t make it a week without Gabriel. He keeps me going, sorts me
out. Puts me to bed at night and gets me up in the morning. Without him, I would probably
be dead.”

“Did you ever suffer from…you know. Stuff? Do you get it all?
Like, do you understand Gabriel?”

“Let me tell you something.” He took a deep breath because
this wasn’t something he’d ever talked about, and he didn’t know why he suddenly felt like
sharing. “I don’t understand much, and let me tell you, I’ve spent years specialising in the
human body and mind. Personally, I’ve made some horrible mistakes, huge mistakes, and
there are things I’ve done that I will always, always regret. I still struggle to grasp how the
human brain works. I learn new stuff every day. But I understand depression. I understand
losing control of your mind, and you do too. I bet you’ve stood at the edge of a cliff in your
head and wondered what it would be like to jump. I know I have. I’ve wobbled and struggled
and bloody lost my mind more than once, but the difference between you and me and Frank
and Gabriel…”


“There is no difference. We’re all human. It’s just our brains are
wired differently. We still live, eat, sleep, fall in love, have families and die when our time is
complete. Some of us have to try a little harder. Some of us struggle a little more. Fall a little
harder and cry a little longer. Struggle to swim against the undercurrent, while the rest of
the world seems to go with the flow. It doesn’t make us less human or worth less than
anyone else.”

It was nice to see Thomas smile, despite his shoulders sagging
and the way he shook his head like Bruno was talking nonsense.

“Seriously, dude. Don’t be jealous. Don’t create drama where
there is none. Let Frank and Gabriel have this. They need it. Well, I hardly know Frank, but
Gabriel does. We’re just a bunch of messed-up gay men on holiday. Take it for what it is.
Nothing more.”

About the Authors

Sophia Soames should be
old enough to know better but has barely grown up. She has been known to fangirl over TV
shows, has fallen in and out of love with more popstars than she dares to remember, and
has a ridiculously high-flying (un-)glamourous real-life job. Her long-suffering husband just
laughs at her antics. Their children are feral. The dogs are too. She lives in a creaky old house
in rural London, although her heart is still in her native Scandinavia. Discovering that the
stories in her head make sense when written down has been part of the most hilarious
midlife crisis ever, and she hopes it may long continue.

Larson Monroe is not a rockstar. Not by any stretch of the
imagination. He’s a newly promoted middle manager for the marketing department of a
sports apparel company…and he’s content. Mostly. But when Pitch, his identical twin
brother, calls and begs for help, Lars can’t resist indulging in the childhood game of
pretending to be his brother.

Reed likes being hired by stuffed suits and high
society types just fine. But when he gets the chance to work security for
Rocktoberfest, the
biggest rock festival in the country, he’s eager to take the job. It’ll be a nice change of pace
and a fat bonus for being on-site during the event. What he doesn’t expect is the change of
pace of his heart when he spots Pitch Monroe, lead singer for a newbie band he’s never
even heard of.

The sparks are instant and quickly burn hotter than
either of them have ever felt before. But when Larson’s real identity is exposed, it doesn’t
exactly go as planned…

Feel The Noise is part of the multi-author
The Road to Rocktoberfest 2022 series. Each book can be read as a standalone, but why not read them all and see
who hits the stage next? Hot rockstars and the men who love them, what more could you
ask for? Kick back, load up your kindle, and enjoy the men of Rocktoberfest!


After a somewhat inappropriate pat down and near-probing, I’m allowed to
grab my carry-on and shoes off the conveyor belt and head toward my gate.

For the thousandth time in twenty-four hours, I curse my idiot brother for
putting me in this situation. As usual, Pitch is fucking up his life and expects me to bail him
out. And as usual, I’m the bigger idiot who is running to his rescue.

A part of me knows he’ll never stop relying on me if I always fix shit for him, but
a bigger part of me likes being relied on. And this is something only I can help with.

Most twins aren’t as identical as Pitch and I are. If we have the same clothes on
and our hair looks similar, even our parents have trouble telling us apart. That was fun when
we were twelve. But as grown-ass men, I didn’t ever expect to get the call from my brother
asking me to pretend to be him.

In public.

On stage in front of thousands of people.

But I guess I was giving him too much credit.

When my rockstar brother texted two days ago and asked me to be him at the
biggest music festival of his career, I thought he was joking.

Like, legit out of his mind on some serious psychedelics. Sadly, he wasn’t.

Pitch spent the past week in Vegas, partying like the next few days weren’t the
most important of his entire career, and now, as anyone could have predicted, he’s fucked up
his voice and has laryngitis. According to his doctor, he won’t be able to speak above a
whisper for at least a few weeks, and there’s no way he can perform for at least a month,
maybe longer.

This means he can’t lead his band during Rocktoberfest, a huge music festival in
the middle of the desert. A music festival that officially starts tomorrow. And because his
band is already pissed at him for all the other times he’s messed up significant opportunities
for them, he can’t tell them the truth.

Enter me.

The gullible brother who can be talked into anything because my own life is so
damn boring that I need to live vicariously through my brother now and then.

Usually, that means watching his band play and pretending I have his kind of

I never, in my wildest nightmares, imagined I’d end up on stage in front of a
crowd of tens of thousands of people…singing. Pitch is the attention whore. I’m the guy in
the background, not a frontman. And yet, I’m about to get on a plane and be the lead vocals
for one of the hottest up-and-coming rock bands in the country.

A sheen of sweat erupts on my brow and temples as the oxygen seems to ease
out of the busy airport terminal. Trying to maintain as much composure as possible, I slowly
count to ten and suck in a deep breath as I walk toward my gate.

I will not have a panic attack in the middle of the airport.

Not only will it cause a mortifying amount of embarrassment for me, but it
would also ruin this crazy little plan that Pitch and I have cooked up for me to sneak into the
festival, pretend to be him, and sneak out without anyone realizing he wasn’t actually
