Will Aaron’s insistence on labeling their relationship drive Jordan away? Giving It a Name by Elizabella Gold, available from Dreamspinner Press.
When his divorced father remarries, twenty-one-year-old Aaron Wood suddenly finds himself adjusting to living with a stepmom and younger sister. Then his smokin’ hot stepbrother moves in too. A recent college grad, Jordan seems adrift—but Aaron’s sure Jordan feels the same attraction toward Aaron as Aaron does toward him.
Aaron and Jordan begin with teasing, which turns to flirting, which leads to more. Jordan seems happy to fool around with him, but when Aaron insists they put a name to what they’re doing, Jordan pulls away: He’s not gay. He’s not bi. Why is Aaron being so pushy?
Aaron’s still in the closet, and he’s never had a real boyfriend. He knows they could be good together if Jordan could face the truth—but if he keeps pushing, he risks losing Jordan for good.
