My story in the Goodreads Love Has No Boundaries event was posted this week. So excited, especially to see readers’ reactions. This one is definitely a little heavier and more emotional than Heaven. If you go by the reviews so far, you might want to have tissues handy before reading. 🙂
Eventually the story will be downloadable and I will post the link when it goes live. For now, if you are a member of the M/M Romance Group on Goodreads, you can read the story here:

The last time I saw him he was looking at me with that big silly grin on his face, his eyes lit up and shimmering like the lights on a Christmas tree. He laughed as he tilted his head back and he looked so free.
All Sam wanted was one night with his boyfriend Dustin where they could enjoy being together and being themselves. Where they didn’t have to hide from their devoutly Catholic parents.
One second—one split second is all it takes for life to turn completely upside down and shatter into a million pieces. One minute Sam and Dustin were together and happy. And the next, Sam wakes up to the news that Dustin is gone. As he tries to process this news, his disappointed parents force him to “find God and get normal again.” But all Sam wants is Dustin.
With a rescue from his sister, Sam slowly begins the fight back for a life of his own…a life without Dustin. One step, one minute, one day at a time.
It isn’t until he meets Nick—someone who has been where he has been—that he begins to climb out of the darkness of the past year. But can Sam make that final leap to let go of Dustin and allow his heart to love again?
“It’s time to let go… (it will be okay)”
