Grayson Black has never forgiven himself for not saving his identical twin brother, Jet, from a savage beating at their father’s hands ten years ago. Jet’s near-death never would have happened if Gray hadn’t been so focused on his boyfriend at the time. He has sworn to take care of his brother ever since. Gray can’t afford a distraction from his self-imposed mission, the type of distraction presented by the gorgeous blond showing up at their gigs.
Kris Larson is a firefighter with the San Francisco Fire Department. Since splitting from his girlfriend, his favorite way to spend nights off is watching the Black Brothers play in the bars of the Bay Area, especially the guitarist. But it’s not until the brothers are left homeless after a fire at their apartment building that Kris has the opportunity to know the real person behind the brooding façade.
Gray fights his attraction to Kris, but with a meddlesome twin who just wants him to be happy, it’s a losing battle. Before Gray and Kris can have a lasting relationship, though, Gray must learn to forgive himself, let go of the past, and lay more than one demon to rest.
“AH SHIT,” I sighed, spotting the blond beefcake who seemed to show up at every single gig. My tolerance was at an all-time low and I couldn’t concentrate on the music when he was around. Blondie got under my skin, and I couldn’t say why. Well, I could, but I wasn’t going to.
Jet looked around the crowded bar. “What?”
We’d finished the first of two sets for the night and were headed to the bar for a much-needed drink and a short break.
Playing as The Black Brothers—Jet on vocals, me on acoustic guitar—we had a small following around the bars of San Francisco. Jet played because he loved performing. I played because Jet loved it and it made me feel just a little closer to Mom.
Performing in small places didn’t pay all that well—especially midweek—but we got free drinks. The size of the audience didn’t matter. We weren’t there for fame or glory.
“Blondie’s back.” I nodded toward the bar where the large blond stood nursing a beer, his gaze flitting between us and the crowd. Tall, maybe an inch over my six-foot-one height, with honey-colored hair that was a little long on top and ice-blue eyes I could get lost in for days. Well-formed muscles rippled under his black shirt, and his jeans hugged his hips in a way that made me want to rip them off to reveal the treasure beneath.
There was something rough yet soft about him that had my heart in my throat and my brain spinning every time I saw him.
I hated him on sight.

About the Author
RJ started as a reader and eventually made the progression to reviewing. It wasn’t until two men popped into her thoughts, insisting on telling her their story that she started to write. It started with one scene. A hot and dirty one in the shower.
RJ’s initial thought was if she could write their scene then they’d shut up and allow her to concentrate on other aspects of the day. That shower scene was 3000 words long and three hours of work. But they didn’t shut up. They told her their entire story and she didn’t sleep for days. Sometimes she couldn’t keep up with what they were telling her and she had to keep a notebook by the bed.
Whilst RJ was writing their story a side character decided he needed his story told too. Then other characters followed suit.
You see the problem? If RJ ever wants to sleep again then she needs to write.
RJ is a wife and a mother to two boys. Even her dog is a boy. She is surrounded by males.
RJ writes emotionally charged, character driven romances. Her guys will always get their HEA, but it will never be easy.
