Sex, drugs, and rock and roll. Coming out and coming of age in the days of AIDS, MTV, Reaganomics, and Just Say No.
Daron Marks is a young guitar player with a dream, make it big like the guys he grew up idolizing in New Jersey--or at least escape his dysfunctional family. He makes it as far as music school in Rhode Island, and the rock clubs of Boston beckon him. But it's hard to succeed from the closet.
A story of how finding one's self is key to finding love, and loving one's self is key to loving another.
Winner of the Rose and Bay Award!
"Daron is one of those rare fictional characters that I have a hard time believing does not actually exist... He is just too real. Daron is an extremely well written character. He grows and changes and engages." —Gay Book Reviews

A mystery man appears in Wrens dreams, dealing pain and pleasure. Is Wren's subconscious warning her away from Derek, or longing for him? When the search for Abby leads to a secret sex club, it seems fate is pulling Wren into Derek's arms, whether she is ready or not.
