A holiday season neither will forget.
Stunt performer and self-declared badass, Tate Astbury returns to his hometown to spend another dreaded Thanksgiving with his dad. But his father forgets and makes other plans, resigning Tate to a quiet and depressing holiday alone unless he can find someplace else to celebrate.
When Tate’s mischievous friend learns about the unfortunate twist, he dares Tate to enter a radio contest to become a fake boyfriend for a desperate caller’s holiday dinner, and Tate never turns down a dare.
Endre Michel is a mess. His yoga business is on the cusp of ruin, and his moms are visiting from out of state for the holiday, intent on meeting his boyfriend, a person Endre invented. Through the contest, he meets Tate, a crude, tattooed older man who plays the role of doting boyfriend so well, Endre suspects and hopes it’s not all for show.
Neither man can deny the unintended connection, and they struggle to overcome the distance between Tate’s put-together Hollywood career and the chaos surrounding Endre’s unsteady future—a situation that intensifies when an unthinkable tragedy uncovers a dark and painful truth.

CW: suicide, substance abuse disorder, grief, mental illness
Julien Bouchard is tired of living a lie. He spent the past year exploring his sexuality in secret, enduring countless dates with women to appease his mother, and dodging his best friend, Draven, who knows everything there is to know about him, except the one thing that could change their friendship. Ready to face his friend, he meets him at a bar and is greeted by an unexpected marriage proposal. The dare isn’t surprising; it’s the scorching hot kiss that sends Julien’s head and heart in a tailspin—and gives him an idea for the perfect plan.
But his plan hits a bump when news of their fake engagement spreads to their families as fast as a wildfire, forcing them to confront their true feelings about each other and hope they don’t get burned.
You had my heart as a boy, and whether you realized it or not, you’ve kept it all these years.
Androgynous fashion model Quinn Bouchard knew this day was coming. Hours before one of the most important photo shoots of his career, his wife asks for a divorce—a divorce they had agreed upon before exchanging vows—causing upheaval in his otherwise happy queerplatonic relationship. As if the day wasn’t hard enough, Quinn learns Xander Engstrom, his childhood best friend now a movie star, is part of the photo shoot, and their reunion awakens something Quinn hasn’t felt in years, leaving him sure of only one thing: he needs Xander back in his life.
Movie star Xander Engstrom has regrets, and the epic fight spread across the tabloids between him and his ex-boyfriend—an addict that won’t leave him alone—is the biggest. To control the damage, Xander agrees to an interview and photo shoot with a well-respected publication where he meets Quinn, the first boy he had a crush on. Xander’s pathetic, romantic heart falls all over again for his long-lost friend. The only problem is the type of relationship he’s thinking of isn’t possible with the stunning model.
Living on opposite coasts and worlds apart, they navigate through months of coordinating schedules, the whims of a finicky film company, and nights in hotel rooms to spend time with each other until secrets force them to choose between a future together or letting their pasts tear them apart.
This friends-to-lovers, slow-burn romance contains implied sexual abuse, one photogenic gargoyle, and discussions about cannibalism.
Can be read as a stand-alone as Quinn’s story starts before Julien’s in Living on a Dare (Book 1) and ends a year later.
In Vegas, everything’s a gamble—even love.
Stone: A kiss in a hallway changed my life.
I plan on murdering my best friend. It’s his fault I’m at this party in Vegas, playing a stupid game of Seven Minutes in Heaven. After breaking up with my girlfriend a month ago, the last thing I want to do is make out with someone. But this stranger who is more attractive than any woman I have ever seen—and being a heavy metal singer, I’ve seen plenty of hot women—kisses like a dream and leaves me breathless.
The problem? I’ve never been with a guy before, and Devon’s scorching kiss sends my mind spinning. I end up drinking too much and saying the wrong thing to him. I have to apologize, to tell him how I really feel, only that’s not easy to do while traveling from city to city to perform.
Devon: Never fall for a straight guy.
Even if he is much older, famous, covered in tattoos, and basically my walking wet dream. I need to put Stone out of my mind, but when he unexpectedly shows up at the garage where I work, I’m powerless against him—I don’t let him know that, though—and it seems like he could use a friend to talk to as he comes to terms with his sexuality.
Okay, fine. So we’ll be friends. I’ve never been a gay mentor before, and I’m terrible at it, because the closer we become, the more I realize there’s something I need to tell him, something that jeopardizes the relationship we’re building.
