Khloe Knight ~ Guest post and Giveaway

 I would like to thank Khloe Knight for talking to us and giving you a chance to win her book, as well as congratulate her on her debut! Thank you for sharing your story with us! 😉











First, let me start by saying thank you to Marc, who has been so sweet to me and

invited me to post this. Also, I’d like to say thank you to all of you who’ve read Always.

Never did I think anyone would love Damon and Jason as much as I did, but you guys

are wonderful!


I’m a 25 year old mother and wife from Mississippi. I’m now also a writer and for me

to say that somewhere public makes me so happy I could burst. I was a late bloomer

when it came to reading novels, but after my first I started devouring every book in sight.

I’ve had a love for writing ever since I was a little girl, although most of it was poetry.

My mother used to read me Dorothy Parker poems as a kid and soon after I discovered

Frost, Whitman, Browning, and Rilke. I was a weird kid, but hey I had a sense of

humor. Fast forward to my late teens after I discovered how much I love books as well

and I was starting to feel like might enjoy trying to write a story. I had this amazing

friend, who shall remain nameless, who happened to be the friend that got me reading

all these great books. Anyway I was shy, always have been, and I expressed this deep

desire for writing something to my friend. I remember her telling me to go for it, to just

sit down and write whatever comes to mind and she would read it. So I did.

My first attempt at writing was both successful and unsuccessful. What started out as

a need to create turned into something so much deeper. I once read something by

Tim O’Brien that said writing is just “Redefining truth,” and that was what my first book

did for me. It redefined some truths that I had to learn to face. This first work is still

unpublished and I’m not sure if I’ll ever be ready to share it, but it will forever be my

baby because it was what lead me to starting this journey.

My mom was actually the one who got me reading M/M romances. She’s not the

typical ‘bless your heart’, go to church every Sunday, let’s not curse in front of the

children kind of mom, but she’s absolutely the coolest. Right away I was hooked on

boys in love. There’s something so honest and rare about M/M romances that you

just don’t get in a lot of other books. It’s not the only genre I love, but it’s probably the

top of the list. Plus, let’s face it, guys are HOT together. I’ve had plenty of gay male

and female friends over the years and I’ve had them from all over the spectrum: in the

closet, WAY out of the closet and proud of it, and those who were out, but still didn’t

kiss and tell. So when I first sat down to write Always, I had plenty of stories to draw

inspiration from. Bullying was also a big issue I wanted to address in Always as I’ve

had friends and family members seriously affected by it. Once I was done, even though

it was short, I was ready to share it with the world and self-published.

I sometimes worry that me being a married mom might deflect some readers of this

genre, but I still think I did okay for my first time. After all love is love, it’s all the same


Never, the much longer sequel to Always, will be available on Amazon late March 2014.

I cannot wait to share Dean’s story with you all.

Jason has had a crush on Damon Nixon ever since he figured

out he liked boys. After one fateful day at summer camp Jason’s dream finally comes true as he and

Damon begin meeting in secret. But the waters of this new relationship are tested when school

comes around and the weight of this secret becomes heavier than either boy expects.

Enter Dean Hardy. When the new openly gay bad boy takes an interest in Jason the stakes rise and

it seems like there is no way to keep Damon’s secret and be happy at the same time. Will Jason

and Damon overcome the pressure of being together? Or will Jason decide he doesn’t want to be

someone’s secret any longer?



“Jason turned to face him as cooly as he could, leaning against his dresser.

Damon’s eyes were tracking his every move. He looked furious and something

else Jason had never thought he’d see, he looked possessive. “There a reason

you’re here Damon? Because whatever it is, I’m sure you can get close if not

more of the same thing from one of your cheerleaders.”

Then Damon was in his face, his bigger body crowding Jason’s, his muscled

arms caging him in. “What the fuck was that in the hallway today,” he snarled.

Jason puffed out his chest some, getting more pissed by the second. “What the

hell did it look like to you? And why do you care?”

“I see that asshole lay one more finger on you, I’ll. . . “

“You’ll what,” Jason yelled. “Not like you could do much more than sit and

glower at us. And I swear to god if you ever push me again like you did today, I

will push right back. I may take that shit off a lot of the assholes around here and

I might have been in love with you for four damn years, but I refuse to take that

from you!”

Damon pulled back, his dark eyes wide. “What do you mean you’ve been in love

with me?”

Jason rolled his eyes. “What do you think it means? I’ve had a crush on you

forever and never thought in a million years I’d get to have you, but when I do, I

have to share you with half the female population at our school. You didn’t like

seeing the way Dean touched me today? Try having that shoved in your face

every single day. The only difference is that it’s by your damn choice, not mine.”

“What do you mean it’s by my damn choice and not yours,” Damon yelled back,

their faces mere inches apart. “You chose this too! You chose to be with me too


“And I guess I’m just getting a good look at what exactly that means.” The cool

convicted tone of Jason’s words had Damon breathing harder.

Damon’s nostrils flared. “I mean it Jason. You’re mine. He needs to stay away

from you if he knows what’s best for him.”

“I don’t belong to you,” Jason declared heatedly.

“You belong with me!”

Damon grabbed him by the scruff of his neck and claimed his lips in a possessive




“I tried to concentrate on helping Jax get some more coffee in him when the music

starts. The lights all around dim until the only light in the room is from the little votive

candles sitting all about. When the first strums of the guitar begin, I don’t look up, but at

the first words that pour from the microphone, my eyes snap up to the guy on the stage.

“Give me love, like her. Cause lately I’ve been waking up alone. Paint splattered tear

drops on my shirt. Told you I’d let them go.”

His voice was like warm honey and whiskey; sweet but a little rough, something that

envelops and warms you, but keeps you coming back for more. I know that might

sound like an awful lot to catch from just a few chords of a song, but I was transfixed.

He was a lot cuter the closer I looked. His jet black hair was styled in the obvious yet

loveable fohawk and in the dim light I could make out the strong inked muscles of his

arms as he strummed the guitar. A lip ring winked at me from movements of his full

lips as he sang and even though I’d never thought facial jewelry particularly hot before,

he seemed to make it an exception. His eyes seemed trained on me and I felt my face

grow warm at the intensity of his gaze. I couldn’t tell what exactly his eye color was, but

they were light enough for me to drown in. I sat there, drunk friend forgotten, openly

staring at this guy as he begged someone to give him love. I’d never heard the song

before, but it was beautiful, even as he stopped playing and started patting his guitar

in a beat while he continued to sing. If his eyes strayed from me they didn’t stay gone

for long and I found myself holding my breath every time they found their way back.

Every chord, every word from his lips seemed to flow over me in an almost physical

caress, until I was so turned on I was ready to drag him off stage and break in the new

apartment. When the song ended and the lights came back on singer hottie stood and

thanked the audience before sitting down the guitar and making his way toward me.

I kept running over and over things in my head that I wanted to say to this beautiful,

talented man that would not make me sound like either an idiot or some kind of fan girl

which would also make me an idiot, but I was drawing a blank. He stopped once he

stood before me and I quietly gasped at his eyes which were so light green they almost

appeared gray. I fiddled with my fingers as we stared each other down, not wanting to

be the first to say something. Did he want to hook up? Did he want to hit me for staring

at him like I wanted to fuck him in front of god and everyone because I was pretty sure

that was the face I was making. Finally he spoke and his eyes narrowed the littlest bit

as he did. “I don’t believe I know you.”

Huh? Did he know everyone in Denver or something? What the hell was that suppose

to mean?

“Big brroder,” I heard Jax slur behind me as he started to stir. “You singded good


My head snapped up to meet hottie’s gaze again. “Did he say brother?” Please god tell

me he did not just try to say brother.

“I believe he did. I’m Riker.” He held his hand out to me, suddenly all business like.

“You’re Dean right?” I nodded dumbly. How the hell did I just find the hottest guy in

Denver and he turns out to be my best friend’s brother?”
