Can love be found in seven minutes?

Heavy metal singer Stone Manson never acknowledged his attraction to men. But when he meets sexy cross-dresser Devon at a party and spends Seven Minutes in Heaven with him, he can’t deny his reaction. His confusion leads him to mess up—big time—with Devon, but after some soul-searching, Stone decides to do whatever it takes to show Devon he’s worth the risk.

Devon’s got a thing for hot, tattooed rock stars—just not the sexually conflicted and closeted ones. Stone’s persistence has Devon warming up to the idea of the singer in his bed, and maybe even in his life, until a threat emerges from Devon’s past. Now it’s Devon’s turn to trust Stone or both their lives could be in jeopardy.

This is a short story that packs in some serious issues in a short amount of pages. Even though it was a short story with some heavy issues, it was not overwhelming.

Stone has always denied a part of himself. He has always been with just women but the part of himself that likes men he buried a long time ago and hides even from himself. Well that is until he met Devon. Seven minutes in Heaven is when they had their first kiss. Because of seven minutes Stone’s eyes are now open and he knows exactly what and who he wants. The only question that h has is how does he make up for the hurtful things that he said to Devon after he got drunk later that night.?

Devon normally would have blown Stone off after the hurtful things that he said after Stone came back around and apologized but Stone ticked off all the things on Devon’s box so he decided when Stone asked him to come to his concert that he was going to go and going to give Stone a second chance.

That second chance is all Stone needed because he was not going to let himself screw up the best thing to ever happen to him again. Things was going great but Devon still had the fear of his mothers ex boyfriend stalking and finding him hanging over his head. When things come to head and his past catches up to him, it is either going to be fight or flight and the question is which will Devon choose.

Like I said early on this is a short story with some major issues covered in it but the story was written beautifully m. I love how Devon did not let his past ruin his future and instead of cowering away in fear Devon did what he needed to do and fought back. The other thing I loved about this book was even though Stone had always mjust been with women, he did not berate himself when he realized how he was feeling about Devon. This was definitely a god story.

Hello, I am an avid reader of male/male books. I do not have a favorite genre when it comes to male/male books because I love all of them from romance, dark reads, paranormal, shifter, threesome, whatever I see that catches my eye at the time. I read books about rock stars, CEOs, military, cops, and just the original plain old good boy types of books. Basically when it comes to a book, I read whatever I am in the mood for at the time. So my tastes varies from day to day and sometimes even hour to hour.
