Understanding Steve [Available in Paperback and KindleUnlimited on November 1st] This is the sad tale of true love and coping with the confusion of gender identity and sexual preference. The death of someone close throws Chris’ life into a tailspin of confusion and depression. Feeling alone, he finds comfort in mutual friends, Henry and Laney, who try to help, only to lead Chris on a new journey that he is not really prepared for. Chris and his friends build enough trust in each other and together they help him cope with his loss and more importantly get him past the confusion by teaching him how his late friend lived his life. This is not a typical erotic story, nor is it a romance novel. This is a serious story that deals with the search for hope and the consequences if hope is lost. There are passages that are more explicit than others that center around transgendered and homosexual situations. STRONGLY RECOMMENDED FOR ADULT AUDIENCES ONLY!
Don’t Tell Anyone was FANTASTIC!!! 4 STARS The initial premise of the story had a bit too much math for me and the idea of the party seemed a bit desperate, which I think was intentional.

I wished the ending was a little more on the humiliating side, but it might have taken away from the premise of the story of young love. Pick up your copy on Amazon

Many stories of this type can be very predictable, and this one generally does as well, but the details of the story will keep you interested and aroused. The common situation of distance between siblings added to the suspense of the initial reaction during the reunion, and the story being told by the roommate helped maintain some small mystery throughout. The long conversation between Carl and Alice might turn off some who are just looking to “get off” but I found it very enjoyable and more than that believable. The story did have some peaks and valleys, and the conflict lasted longer than it probably should have, but it was a still a really good distraction and…
