Stefan Baker, who used to be my best friend and bro, is a totally cocky bastard. And he knows it too. With his backwards cap, lopsided grin, and ripped bod gifted from the gods, he struts around town like he owns it. But I won't let him own me, no matter how hot he's gotten over the past eight years since he went off to become a pro baseball player in the major leagues - and since we had our brutal falling out and everything fell apart. And I definitely won't stare at him no matter how many times he parades in front of me wearing next to nothing. What a cock tease. But when a hard night lands him at my front doorstep - desperately in need of a place to stay - I get one look into those rich blue eyes of his ... and realize our story is far from over. My former "bro" and I are about to define a whole new term for the steamy, beautiful mess that's about to happen between the two of us. * This is a stand-alone, angsty, slow-burn M/M romance with a guaranteed HEA and no cheating.

From dating to mating, from scoring to snoring, and from catching his eye to capturing his heart and keeping it-his volume offers heaven-sent advice on finding love in today's gay world. Whether you're coming out or moving in, settling down or breaking up, raising kids or raising hell, GAY ASTROLOGY can help. With wit and warmth it describes the challenges and joys of seventy-eight possible sunsign combos. And it gives specifics on how to court, bed, and wed in a gamut of relationships. The great news is that anything can work. If all signs point to the perfect match but it's a queer romance, then this is the book for you. GOOD HEAVENS...IRRESISTIBLE FORCES ARE AT WORK! WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN HIS STARS MEET YOURS! ARIES/SAGITTARIUS What would it be like if Superman hooked up with Hercules? Cosmic love, cosmic fights, cosmic rescues in the skies over Metropolis. So what if a building gets leveled-neither of these guys meant any harm. It takes the embarrassment of putting their super feet in their super mouths to bring them back to earth. GEMINI/LEO Each member of this pair will always think the other is a little ditzy. To Gemini, Leo's single-mindedness and sincerity seem supremely unsavvy. Leo thinks that all of that Gemini flitting and manipulation are distractions from what really matters. So why would a Gemini and Leo come together? It is because they fulfill deep needs for each other. And because ditzy can be cute. SCORPIO/AQUARIUS This is a nervous romance. Two men, with little in common other than a mile-wide streak of stubbornness and an inability to color inside the lines, come together to frighten the bejesus out of each other between sudden uncontrollable attacks of sexual passion. If that isn't love...

Welcome to Clean Slate Ranch: home of tight jeans, cowboy boots, and rough trails. For some men, it’s a fantasy come true. Mack Garrett loves the rolling hills surrounding his Northern California dude ranch. Leading vacationers on horse trails with his two best friends is enough—romance is definitely not in the cards. When a sexy tourist shows up at Clean Slate, he’s as far from Mack’s type as can be. So why is the handsome city slicker so far under his skin in less than a day? Roughing it in the middle of nowhere isn’t anywhere near Wes Bentley’s idea of fun. Then he lays eyes on the gruffest, hottest papa bear he’s ever seen.

Until a campout gone wrong strands both men in the mountains with nothing to do but get to know each other. Mack intends to keep his closely guarded heart out of Wes’s very talented hands. But for a seven-day cowboy, Wes is packing some long-term possibility.

Reading the Bromance

Homosocial Relationships in Film and Television

In the middle of this century’s first decade, “bromance” emerged as a term denoting an emotionally intense bond between straight men. Yet bromance requires an expression of intimacy that always toys with being coded as something other than “straight” male behavior, even as it insists that such intimacy must never be misinterpreted. In Reading the Bromance: Homosocial Relationships in Film and Television, editor Michael DeAngelis has compiled a diverse group of essays that address the rise of this tricky phenomenon and explore the social and cultural functions it serves. Contributors consider selected contemporary film and television texts, as well as the genres that historically inspired them, in order to explore what needs bromance attempts to fulfill in relationships between men—straight or otherwise. Essays analyze films ranging from I Love You, Man to Superbad, Humpday, I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry, The Hangover, and the Jackass films, and include studies of representative examples in international cinema such as Y tu mama tambien and classic and contemporary films of the Bollywood genre. The volume also examines the increasingly prevalent appearance of the bromance phenomenon in television narratives, from the “male bonding” rituals of Friends and Seinfeld to more recent manifestations in House, The Wire, and the MTV reality series Bromance. From historical analysis to discourse analysis, sociological analysis, and queer theory, this volume provides a broad range of methodological and theoretical approaches to the phenomenon in the first booklength study of the bromance genre. Film and television scholars as well as readers interested in pop culture and queer studies will enjoy the insights of Reading the Bromance.

After spending ten years in the army, James Wharton enters civilian life and settles in the idyllic English countryside with his husband and two dogs, in what seems to be a perfect fairy-tale ending. But only a year later, separated from his husband, James finds himself trying to carve out a new life in London, frequenting the capital's gay clubbing scene in a search for potential friends and lovers. He is quick to discover the phenomenon known as 'chemsex' - a weekend world of drugs, partying and sex. Immediately hooked, James begins to spend hours, often days, with groups of total strangers, locked in drug-induced states of heightened sexual desire. Something for the Weekend compassionately explores the growing popularity of chemsex and considers the motivating factors that have lured people into this underworld. James interviews a variety of characters, from drug dealers and sexual health experts to other gay men who, like himself, became addicted to this often volatile culture, and reveals how chemsex has cemented its status as more than just a short-term craze, becoming a permanent feature in modern gay life.

I'm so used to spinning love stories in my head that I've lost track of the one in my heart. Doesn't she see that my strength begins and ends within the four corners of the page? I may be a writer, but with her, I'm a romantic. I want to pin her against every wall on this campus and devour her - lips to lips, skin to skin, hand to hand. I want to feel her heart race against mine and her body quake under my touch. I'm finished being a loveless prisoner to the page. Now I want the real thing - and I think she's it. ~ SAM ~ Everyone thinks I'm just a weirdo, the quiet girl, the music nerd. No one sees me for who I really am - except him. He watches me with those dark, sensitive eyes of his, melting me. He knows my pain. Maybe he shares it. He brushes the hair out of my eyes with his soft, skillful hand and it drives me insane. I think he's the music I've been looking for all along. You can't make harmony with just one voice. I need another - and I want it to be his.
