BLURB: 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?Excerpt
“So, does this count as our first date?” Ryan’s face flushes slightly.
His question takes me off guard. His expression looks like he’s uncertain if he should have said what he did.
Instead of answering him, I lean forward, put my hand gently on the back of his neck, and kiss his soft lips. It was probably a stupid thing to do, but my heart seems to be doing the thinking for me.

Skylar has just landed his dream job dancing hip hop during the summer at his favorite theme park, what he didn't count on was in Ryan, his new, very hot, Australian dancing partner or his attraction towards him. 
Ryan has a job waiting for him as soon as he goes back to Australia after the summer, but the closer he gets to Skylar, the less he wants to leave. Would they be able to maintain a long distance relationship?
This was a very cute book. Both Skylar and Ryan were likable characters, if a bit immature at times, which considering their ages, was realistic enough. They had great chemistry and I just adored how sweet and caring they both were. 
The writing was a bit awkward at first, but it got better as we moved forward with the book. The love story was very enjoyable, with some angst and misunderstandings to keep things interesting. Recommendable!
Rating: 4 Stars!!!

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.
