New Release! Finn (Single Dads of Gaynor Beach) by Jessie G

 

The second Single Dads of Gaynor Beach book is available! Fall in love with Finn & Nash!

Nash’s wanderlust sent him running once, but when he finds what he’s been searching for in Finn, can he convince the single dad he’s home for good?

At eighteen, Nash Galasso couldn’t get out of Gaynor Beach fast enough. The seaside town was too confining, too nosy, and came with too many expectations. Quick visits kept his sandy roots alive, but no matter how many times his brother asked, Nash refused to be guilted into moving back. Not until a boating accident left his niece and nephew orphaned, and he was the only family left to raise them.

Finn Brody loved everything about living in a small town. The quaint community was close-knit and accepting, and when he got the chance to go to a prestigious university, he happily turned them down for community college and fatherhood. All he wanted was to give his son Sawyer the same childhood he enjoyed, and though Finn never expected to raise his son alone, he could only do that in Gaynor Beach.

In high school, they were acquaintances passing in the hall. When they meet again, Finn is the man to help Nash settle the estate. Their easy friendship is a bonus they both welcome, but it’s their growing attraction that makes Nash realize that everything he’s been searching for is waiting in the place he left.

New Release–Jake (Single Dads of Gaynor Beach)

 

It’s finally here! Jake is out–in every sense of the word–and early readers are loving it!

A man isn’t defined by the worst moments in his past, but they can be hard as hell to leave behind.

Fresh starts are overrated. I’ve lived in Gaynor Beach my whole life, and I’m damn proud of it. I miss my wife like hell, and a grumpy mechanic may not make the best single dad, but the kids and I are doing okay right here. They’re not complaining—maybe because they’re never home. Teenagers.

Then a fresh start falls into my lap when the hottest man I’ve ever seen has his car quit on him. And if I can’t forget the feel of his arms around me when he rode on the back of my bike…well, nobody needs to know that except me.

But now Micah’s introducing me to worlds I’ve never been a part of before, or even imagined I could be. Worlds with ropes and explosive chemistry and adventures much bigger than our rides in the Southern California sunshine. Being with him feels like the biggest risk I’ve ever taken—and not everyone in town wants us to take this chance together.

I hope we can hang on when the ride gets bumpy.

JAKE is an angsty opposites-attract Romance in the Single Dads of Gaynor Beach world with a grumpy mechanic, a sunshiny high school teacher with a secret, size difference and a few first times, and three teenagers who are more perceptive than their parents bargained for.

Cover Reveal! (Yes, finally! *lol*)

The cover for JAKE: SINGLE DADS OF GAYNOR BEACH!

You might have already seen my new cover, because it’s been live on all the retailer sites for a few days now. I had a post all ready to go on cover reveal day…but somehow didn’t schedule it to publish! Sorry about that–I’ve been running as fast as I can to get everything ready for JAKE’s release, and that means trying to multi-task at 5:30 a.m. before logging on for the day job. I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m not good at multi-tasking while it’s still dark outside and before I’ve finished at least one cup of coffee. *lol*

Better late than never, right?

JAKE will release on March 29th, and launch a new shared-world, multi-author series featuring single dads! Gaynor Beach is a fictional small town on a Southern California beach, and for real I want to go live there!

Pick up your copy of JAKE at the special pre-order price through March 28th!

A back door snippet…

Hello Snippetteers!

This week’s snippet is from a brand new short erotic Romance that’s free through July 15th! Read to the end & find out how to get your copy!

Back Door Stories: Joey is first in a spin-off series of bite-sized erotic romances in the Buchanan House world centering on the back door hookup culture at the camp. Series readers might recognize Joey from Safe House, but will probably like him more here. ❤ The story is all from Joey’s point of view, and the first line is his.

 

“Can I bum one of those?”

He took a drag of his smoke, lighting up full smirking lips. I listened to him exhale as he slowly emerged from the shadows. The fairy lights caught on his white tank, illuminating a lusciously-muscled body. He leaned a bulky forearm on the railing, dangling his smoke from long graceful fingers and absently flicking ash into the flower bed.

“If that’s what you’re looking to put in your mouth, sure.” He scoffed, as though he knew what I was there for.

Back Door Stories: Joey

I’m a stone cold player. One night a week.

Six nights, I take care of the elderly residents of a care home. Thursdays, I crash welcome parties at a swanky LGBTQ hotel near my small town. My heart got broken once and it wrecked me. Now I get a happy ending every Thursday night.

Guests enter through the front door of Buchanan House and a hookup culture thrives around back.

Partially thanks to me.

When the weekly welcome party doesn’t pan out, I knock on the back door of a second-floor room. Sometimes I’m disappointed, but most of the time the door opens on the kind of anonymous encounter I live for.

One Thursday night I meet a man who changes everything.

My Year: 2020

I’m taking a break from editing to reflect on 2020 and think about what I want to accomplish writing-wise in 2021, so I thought I’d share a little of it!

2020 wasn’t an easy year, but I got more done than I thought! I re-released my M/M Romance with a side of kink with a sexy new cover and a new title, and a boxset of the Buchanan House series with an amazing set of covers by the talented LC Chase.

The boxset includes a bonus epilogue, which was also the first new story I wrote and published since my car accident in 2017. It was so much fun to visit the Buchanan House family again. I love those guys!

I had a few ideas for paranormals and Dark Romances, so I indulged my inner horror-fan and wrote those. Upwardly Mobile is a story in The Devil’s in the Details & Other Stories that I’d started a while ago and finally finished this year. It was an especially cathartic story for me and I hope you enjoy it. The titular story in that collection was inspired by the cover, which was a new experience for me and one I’ve repeated.

Obviously I got the darkness out of my system, because my 2020 Christmas story is probably the lowest-angst I’ve ever written! Handspun is a short and sweet story I’d been wanting to write for a while. I wasn’t sure it was on brand, though, so I held back. It’s not super angsty like most of my writing, but I think that’s okay. 😊

In November I drafted a new novella during NaNoWriMo and am almost ready to send it to betas and have it edited. I’m super proud of it, and am looking forward to getting it out into the world! It’s book two in a new series—more on that as it gets closer to release!

I also have plans for a book three in that series, and a new series of three novellas. Those stories should take me through the first half of 2021. Once I know what I want to accomplish after that, I’ll let you know.

Happy Holidays! I hope you have a wonderful holiday and a happy and prosperous 2021!

Holiday Weekend, Buchanan House: Book Four

Ryan Orchard moved from small-town Idaho to Portland almost two years ago and still feels like a hick. When Paulie Nesbitt dumped him, he wasn’t even surprised. Despite losing twenty-five pounds since then, Ryan’s confidence is nonexistent and his life has stalled. Not only is he convinced the career he wants is beyond his reach, he’s given up on relationships. A new job at a familiar restaurant—and his gorgeous coworker—could be just what Ryan needs to believe in himself again.

Glenn Hernandez might be the only nineteen-year-old in Portland who dreads his days off. Between his horrible housing situation and the ever-present temptation to crawl back into the bottle, Glenn prefers to keep busy. He volunteers at the Elliott Foundation House, a homeless shelter helping LGBTQ sex workers. As an alum of the shelter, Glenn finds it hard to leave his past behind. But when the new server at the trendy restaurant where he works catches Glenn’s eye and works his way into his heart, Glenn finally has a reason to start a new life.

New Release (a little late!): A Buchanan House Love Stories Collection

 

Hello folx! I just realized I never announced the release of the Buchanan House boxset on my own website!

Release day was June 23rd, and the boxset is available on Amazon and Kindle Unlimited. The set includes the entire series plus a bonus epilogue written for the collection—3 novels, 2 novellas, and 2 short stories in all, over 1,600 pages of romance!

Except for a couple of shorts that are going to be freebies (read to the end to learn how you can get copies!), all of my former Dreamspinner titles have now been re-released. I’ve self-published them under my own label, CeeTwo Publishing. (If you see them out there under any other name, please give me a heads-up. <3)

To be honest, I never wanted to go indie. I would rather have found a new publisher. But, after six years of less-than-stellar experiences at every press I worked with, it will take a while to rebuild my trust in small presses. In the meantime, I’m working to recapture the love of writing for its own sake—and to find the courage to keep putting new stories out into the world. It’s not easy to do everything on my own—there’s always something besides writing that needs to be done, and I’m sure many things have fallen through the cracks. I appreciate the patience and support of my fans and fellow authors alike—you are the reason I’m trying to get new stories finished. You are the reason I keep showing up on social media, even when it’s difficult and feels like I’m typing in invisible ink or shouting into the void.

So, if you like beach reads, created families, and hard-earned happy endings, please give A Buchanan House Love Stories Collection a try!
