Rory Donovan’s life is a hot mess. His marriage is failing and he’s in intensive psychotherapy, working through the unfortunate side effects of memories from a childhood trauma. The only thing good in his life right now is his job—teaching photography to gifted high school students.
Harbor Patrol officer Bennett Foster is co-parenting his teenage daughter with his high school best friend Jessie. When he meets Addison’s teacher and realizes they’ve met before, he can’t get the sexy stranger out of his head.
Striking up a sexual-tension-filled friendship, together they must help an angsty teenager deal with a dying friend. Bennett must keep his little family from falling apart while Rory struggles to come to terms with his new reality. Somewhere along the way, most unexpectedly…love happens.
Ten songs to write Unbreak Broken to:
I think I choose this topic any time it’s given to me, because I keep extensive playlists during all of my books. Music is a huge part of my writing process, and many of my ideas have popped into my head after hearing a particular lyric. A few of the songs from the list will appear as epigraphs in the book.
In no particular order:
- Ed Sheeran – I’m a Mess
- You + Me – Break the Cycle
- Avicii/Aloe Blacc – Wake Me Up
- Bruno Mars – Gorilla
- OneRepublic – Burning Bridges
- Justin Timberlake – Let the Groove Get In
- Fort Atlantic – Let Your Heart Hold Fast
- Justin Nozuka – Soulless Man
- Johnny Cash – If You Could Read My Mind
- Nick Jonas – Chains
Fun fact: Even the name Unbreak Broken came from a song lyric. The full playlist is available on my website at http://jkhogan.com/ub_playlist/. There will be a special prize for the first person who can tell me what song it’s from. (Hint: it may or may not be listed here, but it’s definitely on the full playlist). Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you care to take a guess!
Dr. Conlan treated me to a rare fond smile, almost motherly in its warmth. “I’m pleased to see you happier than you have been.”
I grinned back, but then my brow furrowed. “Does this make me gay?”
“Does that matter?”
“I don’t know. Should it?”
“I’ll never understand the fascination with labeling things that our society seems to have. To me, sexuality is as intangible as the universe. There’s no way to truly know what’s out there, and how it all relates to everything else.
“As humans, we seek to know, to understand, and somehow we feel that putting things in boxes and labeling helps us do that. But some things are fluid, changing and developing with the tide of the evolution of life. Do me a favor, Rory. Don’t put yourself in a box.”
I was dumbfounded, stunned speechless. I knew I’d remember Dr. Conlan’s words for the rest of my life, and I would try to stay as true to them as I could. “I won’t,” I whispered.

About the Author
J.K. Hogan has been telling stories for as long as she can remember, beginning with writing cast lists and storylines for her toys growing up. When she finally decided to put pen to paper, magic happened. She is greatly inspired by all kinds of music and often creates a “soundtrack” for her stories as she writes them. J.K. is hoping to one day have a little something for everyone, so she’s branched out from m/f paranormal romance and added m/m contemporary romance. Who knows what’s next?
J.K. resides in North Carolina, where she was born and raised. A true southern girl at heart, she lives in the country with her husband and young son, a cat, and two champion agility dogs. If she isn’t on the agility field, J.K. can often be found chasing waterfalls in the mountains with her husband, or down in front at a blues concert. In addition to writing, she enjoys training and competing in dog sports, spending time with her large southern family, camping, boating and, of course, reading!
