“He's waiting for me to ask, and I'm afraid.”
“I'm just one more gay guy here.”
Moving to the suburbs of L.A. was supposed to give Nic Montero a fresh start. After escaping his family, coming out as a gay trans man, and excelling in computer programming out of desperation to get financially stable or die, everything should be easy. But joining gay culture now, post-transition, feels impossible... until he runs into the force of nature that is Kyle. Everything Nic isn't, Kyle embodies. Green hair, garters and cut-off shorts, sports jerseys, and all, brash Kyle is the most gorgeous man he's ever laid eyes on, and he pulls Nic headlong into the center of his world. If only Nic felt like enough for a man like Kyle.
“One-night stands are my only option.”
Loud, loving, and too much for most men to handle, Kyle Everett catches eyes and occasionally scorn... even at his job at the local HIV charity, Plus. His days and nights are spent at work, his precious spare moments spent with his son, Kevin, when it's his turn to co-parent, or his best friend, drag queen River. He only has money or time for cheap flings, but the lanky otter who walks into his life makes Kyle want to hold him for longer than a night. He knows what it's like for Nic to be without a family, but he isn't brave enough to let this man into his life... until his charity is targeted by bigots, and Nic's there for him.
“I'll stay with you if you're brave enough to be you.”
Nic spent his twenties avoiding family and even his own femininity, but his yearning is impossible to ignore. Kyle's used to flying solo, but Nic offers him safety and fills gaps in his life he never realized existed and now can't stand. Living in close proximity, they can't run from their attraction, but they're each used to being rejected, with the emotional scars to prove it. Can two men who feel like they're not enough and too much find something just right?
Flaunt is a steamy, stand-alone gay romance novel with a HEA ending and no cliffhanger.
EXCERPT
“Excuse me,” he said as he approached the counter, jerking his chin up in a friendly nod at the attendant. “I’m a little lost.”
“You’re not the only one. You hit the 4G black hole around here?” The guy was young, reddened pock marks dotting his cheeks, and his hair was pulled back in a… man-bun, did they call them? Had to be in his early twenties.
He eyed Nic up and down, and not in a friendly way— maybe taking in his business clothes. He looked slightly more friendly when he looked up again. No wonder. Gas stations were dangerous places to work.
“Yeah, man. My phone just won’t help,” Nic shrugged. “I’m looking for Plus.”
The attendant squinted and leaned on the counter. “The what?”
“The…” Nic tried not to let his cheeks redden. Nothing to be ashamed of. “Gay men’s HIV foundation. The charity nearby.”
“You want to find that, you wanna be down south of State.” The attendant smirked at him, turning to his register. He reached out for something and Nic flinched, tensing up instinctively and checking the exit.
The guy was only grabbing his water bottle. He crinkled it obnoxiously, popping his lips and chugging a few sips.
Fucking relax, Nic told himself, squaring his shoulders again. “South of—?”
“That’s where the street kids curb-crawl. You’ll get it fast enough there. I hear they give them free shit so they don’t get the rest of us normals sick.”

Nic’s jaw dropped. Did he just…?

About the Author
e-davies-profile-pic
E. Davies was proficient in real estate ad shorthand (the old-fashioned newspaper kind) by the age of nine. Growing up moving constantly taught him what people have in common, the ways relationships are formed, and the dangers of “miscellaneous” boxes.
As a teen, he tore through a stack of found romance novels, wishing someone had written similar for M/M, though he could never find anything at Chapters or the library. Just after graduating university in 2013, semi-out and clutching his English B.A. for dear life, he stumbled on an Amazon M/M short story. It was a whole new... phrase he dares not repeat for fear of lawyers. It shone and shimmered splendidly, though.
After failing forty times to avoid crafting happily-ever-after endings for steamy short stories, he plunged into romance novels and hasn't looked back. As a young gay author whose formative gay fictional role models were characters punished for their sexuality, Ed prefers his stories lightly dramatic, full of optimism and hope.
Now out and proud, he writes full-time, goes on long nature walks, tries to fill his passport, drinks piƱa coladas on the beach, flees from cute guys, coos over fuzzy animals (especially bees), and is liable to tilt his head and click his tongue if you don't use your turn signal.
