The town of Heartsville means something different to everyone who lives there. For Aaron Forester, it’s a gay-friendly buffer between himself and the rest of the world. After being outed in high school and bullied to the point of violence, his family uprooted their lives and relocated to the small hamlet. He’s moved on from all that and now owns a popular café in the bustling shopping district. But after twenty years of happy living, Aaron’s past creeps up on him in the most unexpected way.

Brad Collins only has one regret and he’s carried it with him since he was a teenager. When he moves to Heartsville and gets set up on a blind date with the most adorable, engaging man he’s met in a long time, he couldn’t be happier. But Brad didn’t expect the guy to be the person he outed in high school—who he’s now falling in love with.

Aaron and Brad hit it off instantly—in and out of the bedroom. But after a long overdue apology and a small serving of resentment, is their fledgling relationship worth another shot?

Another Shot is the delightful story of two men, Aaron, and Brad, who are set up on a blind date and actually hit it off. Unfortunately, past events threaten to unravel their new relationship.

Now this is how you write a novella!


It was sweet, fun, sexy, with a tinge angst, and lovely epilogue. It was the perfect read for my Friday night after a stressful work week.

What I loved:

    *Great cast of characters, main and secondary.
    *Light on the angst, high on the feel good vibes.
    *Great story flow.
    *Nice steam.
    *And a lovely ending that will leave you with a smile on your face.

If you’re in the mood for an endearing story that will leave you with the warm fuzzies then you need not look any further! 4.5 Stars.
