Love & Strength Excerpt

I’ve been up all night, waiting out in front of Jason and Teresa’s apartment ever since I got off work around midnight. Frank, the owner of the College Deli where Teresa works, gave me their address only because I lied and said I was supposed to pick Skylar up but misplaced the directions I had written down. If it had been anyone else, I know he wouldn’t have given that information so freely. Thank God he knows me.

Last night was such a blur, but when I start to put the pieces back together in my mind, I feel horrible for what poor Skylar must have felt. I’ve texted him on and off since last night and have not gotten a single reply. I’m worried and scared because I know I’ve hurt him deeply. As his husband, I should always be his first source of comfort, instead, I’m the one who's caused him so much pain.

Chaos & Hype (Dancer's #1)

Hip hop dancer, Skylar, is excited about a new job he’s gotten for the summer at a theme park near his home. This is his chance to show his family that he can make money doing what he loves. Skylar wasn’t counting on falling for Ryan, the hot, Australian dancer that he is paired up with, but the pull is too strong for him to fight. 

Ryan is set to go back home to Australia after the park closes at the end of the summer. He didn’t plan on falling in love with his gorgeous dancing partner, but his heart had other ideas. As he and Skylar get closer, their impending separation starts to affect the both of them. 

Will they do what it takes to be together?

Meet Grein Murray

When I'm not writing I like going to concerts. Music is a big part of my life, I've played bass guitar since I was a teen. I love nature and enjoy hiking and working with causes that help protect our planet and wild animals.

I have loved books all of my life and have always enjoyed escaping the ordinary world by getting lost in a good book. I read a lot of different genres of books but have fallen in love with MM. I support the gay community and hope one day people will see that love is love and that it is a beautiful thing no matter your gender, race or religion.

I am an avid animal lover and have quite a collection of pets in my home. I love ancient history and have studied Alexander the Great as well as Egypt and it’s pharaohs. I also am very interested in angels and have researched them and will put that to use in future books.

I hope that my readers continue to fall in love with my characters and that my stories touch their lives and bring them happiness.
