Always Forward! Never Straight by Charley Descoteaux

Contemporary MM Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R (Four Flames, explicit scenes for mature readers only.)
Love isn’t a sprint, it’s a marathon.
Baxter Bryan is the nerdy half of BaxCo, a start-up in Portland’s Silicon Forest creating cutting-edge high-tech toys. He’s also a hermit. When BaxCo sponsors the Portland Rock and Roll Half Marathon, Bryan decides to break out of his comfort zone and do more than listen to the music with a beer in hand. The race has barely started when he bumps into a fit, handsome man, causing sparks to fly. But the long hours needed to make BaxCo a success aren’t the only reason Bryan spends most of his time alone in his apartment.
Cay Nissen runs every day to stay in shape. He would love to run away from his job in a Silicon Forest cube farm, but keeps returning to support his teenaged daughter. His true love is music. Cay writes songs for the band he helped form in high school but doesn’t see any way to turn music into a career. The half marathon seemed like a decent way to pass a Saturday, make his boss happy, and catch a performance of his old band all at the same time. When he meets a man who sparks his interest, the safety of his cubicle isn’t the only part of his life that’s in jeopardy of changing.
What is your go-to meal when you dine out?
Breakfast. I love breakfast food and am happy to eat it for any meal or even a midnight snack! My favorite breakfast when I’m out is two eggs over medium, extra crispy hash browns, bacon, and sourdough toast with real butter. Mmmmmm… Not the most inspired meal, but it’s comfort food.
What’s your favorite hashtag to watch on Twitter?
I watch a lot of writing and LGBTQIA+ related hashtags, and I think my favorite of them all is #1linewed. Every Wednesday a bunch of writers and poets in all genres drop lines based on a theme (or not, whatever they want to do) and it’s so much fun to get a tiny peek into what everyone is working on! I try to play every week—I look at my words differently when one line is all I get. Plus, it’s free and pre-registration isn’t required, so I can procrastinate!
Describe the perfect vacation.
So many vacations are on my list, but I think my overall favorite is to go to the beach. I’m lucky and will be heading to the Oregon coast over MLK weekend for a writer’s retreat. This will be the second year a group of us are renting a beach house to write, edit, share tips, and eat, drink, and laugh a lot! Writing can be such a solitary pursuit, it’s so wonderful to be able to spend time with other writers. I’m really looking forward to it!
What are your hobbies?
Besides reading I love to knit. I tend to have a few projects going at once, usually at least one I would call a “mindless knit” so I can sit and ponder a story while my hands are engaged, and one that’s more challenging. The intricate patterns are great for getting my mind off a stressful day at work, or just learning a new stitch pattern for its own sake. I’m not a huge fan of lacy things but those patterns are some of the most complex and fun so I’ve made a few.
When you read for pleasure, what kind of books do you choose?
This may sound odd, but I love YA. Especially Urban Fantasy or Contemporary Paranormal written for the upper age-range of the YA genre. I started reading it for research and have stayed for the imaginative plots and the relationships that aren’t romantic. Don’t get me wrong, I read a lot of YA UF Romances, and even those seem to pay more attention to friendships and family relationships than a lot of adult books I’ve come across.

Survival is a Dying Art by Neil S Plakcy

Genre Thriller
Book heat level (based on movie ratings) PG
When a special agent finds a stolen painting, he uncovers a smuggling ring that saves lives. No matter what he does, it’s going to cost him his heart.

Special Agent Angus Green is still in his twenties, and his red hair and good looks often make people underestimate him, but he’s a smart, fearless cop who believes in the FBI motto: Fidelity, Bravery, Integrity.
Fort Lauderdale retiree Frank Sena is working with pawn shop owner Jesse Venable to retrieve a painting stolen from Frank’s uncle, a gay Venetian killed during the Holocaust. Angus volunteers to help Frank, and discovers Venable is the subject of a task force looking into smuggling immigrants out of war-torn countries in the Middle East.
Angus, who knows nothing about art and speaks no Italian, may be in over his head as he is assigned to befriend, and ultimately betray, Venable. But with the help of his Italian-speaking brother and his art-loving boyfriend, he may be able not only to retrieve the painting, but solve a smuggling case and potentially save thousands of lives.
The investigation will take him from the sun-drenched rooftops of Venice to a private yacht speeding down Fort Lauderdale’s New River. Along the way, he’ll learn the true meaning of survival.
