Author/Writer of Book/Novel:
A double shot of devastating news turns Justin Evanson’s life upside down. When he learns his father has cancer, and he has siblings he never knew existed, he leaves everything behind and moves to Virginia to support his dad as he tries to make amends with his family—a family Justin’s not sure he has a place in. Things go from bad to worse when he discovers his recent hookup is his newfound sister’s brother-in-law.
Drew Sinclair never expected to see Justin after their night at the club or to discover their family connection. If anyone found out, it would give Drew’s brother another reason to hate him. But there’s something about Justin that draws him in, and it’s not only because they burn up the sheets together.
One meeting leads to another, and before Justin realizes it, Drew has become the only thing in his world he feels is his. And for the first time in his life, Drew knows what it means to be needed. Being there for Justin and supporting him when things spiral out of control feels right. But with so much happening so quickly, it’s hard to trust their feelings. Is this thing between them real? Or just a test drive before life forces them down two separate roads?

Justin Evanson sat in the busy club and eyed the guy seated down the bar from him. He hadn’t kept his eyes off Justin all night, and Justin hadn’t been inclined to take his eyes off him either.
His dad, who had been the picture-perfect father from the moment he’d come into Justin’s life at eight years old was dying—and his vision of that man was shattered. He’d discovered that his dad wasn’t who he thought he was. When he’d finally made his way into Justin’s life, he’d done so on the heels of abandoning a son and daughter, and until he realized he didn’t have much time left, had pretended they didn’t exist.
Now, Justin was in a new town, in a new fucking state, waiting for his father to find a way back into the lives of the kids he’d abandoned, and he had no idea how he really fit into that equation. How would he fit in with his father’s new family, which was really his original family?
His older sister, Shanen, had gotten married today. His older brother, Landon, had walked her down the aisle to give her away. Justin had spent the day playing cards and watching television at a piece of crap, yellow table with his depressed father, who was upset he couldn’t be there. They didn’t know their father was back.
They didn’t know Justin existed at all.
Talk about a shitty fucking hand to be dealt. He figured he deserved an anonymous hookup with a sexy guy he met in a club, and the blond with the strong jawline and hooded eyes just might be exactly what he was looking for.
Sex was a whole lot more fun than dealing with the other shit.
Justin couldn’t imagine how Shanen and Landon would feel when they found out about him—and more importantly, when they found out about their father. His chest felt hollowed out just thinking about the situation, thinking about the family he didn’t know. The things they’d missed—holidays and summer vacations. Fights and laughs and all the things that came with family. Basically, he was feeling really fucking sorry for himself. Hence the reason he sat in a club hoping to fuck the night away. It was the least he deserved.
After finishing his drink, Justin stood up and walked toward the sexy blond. For a brief second, he thought the guy was going to bolt, but he didn’t move, just continued to follow Justin with his eyes as he made his way to him.
“Hey.” Justin looked down at the guy as he swished whatever he was drinking around in his glass. His blond hair was short, buzzed closer around the edges and slightly longer on top. Every now and then his face would change colors—blue, red, green, as the strobe light shined around the room.
The blond nodded. “Drew.” He had a deep, sexy voice. All gravelly and…almost commanding, but somehow a little unsure at the same time. It got his dick hard, but then again, he hadn’t had sex in a while, so he wasn’t sure that was a difficult feat.
“You looking?” Justin asked. There was no reason to beat around the bush. Drew would say yes or no. They’d fuck or not. He wouldn’t pretend this was anything other than what it was.
He watched as Drew’s steel-blue eyes darted around the club—toward the door and then back at Justin again. Had he read the guy wrong and he wasn’t interested? Or hell, maybe he just wasn’t into hooking up with someone he didn’t know. Some people were and some weren’t. He didn’t judge one way or the other.
After bringing his glass to his lips, Drew downed the rest of his drink in three long swallows. He set the glass down a little hard on the counter and then flinched. “Let’s dance,” he finally said, a slight quiver to his voice.
Fuck. Was he in the closet? The thought made Justin’s gut cramp. He hated it when people had to live like that. Luckily, it had never been a problem for him but he knew it was for too many people.
Whether Drew was in the closet or not, there was one thing he had to confirm. “You married? Man or woman, it doesn’t matter. Are you in any kind of relationship at all?” He didn’t fuck around with a man who was with someone else. That’s how he’d been born. His dad had cheated on Landon and Shanen’s mom, and then gone back to her. Justin’s mom didn’t know how to get a hold of him, so she raised Justin alone until he was eight and she found out where his dad was. He’d gained a father around the same time Landon and Shanen had lost theirs. It didn’t matter to him that pregnancy obviously wasn’t an issue here, he didn’t touch someone who was cheating. He made damn sure he asked any time he hooked up.
