Blurb: Jonas needs Tate. He just doesn’t know it yet.
Or at least, he doesn't want to admit it. Because there is no way Jonas Ashcroft is gay. He’s a straight, carefree frat boy player, just like any good son of a conservative state senator. If only his struggle to convince everyone—especially himself—didn’t leave him so miserable. No matter how many girls or bottles he drowns himself in, Jonas can neither escape nor accept who he is.
Enter Tate. He’s smart, confident, and instantly sees right through Jonas’s surly exterior. Sure, he’s done things in life he’s not proud of, but he knows who he is and what he wants. And what he wants is Jonas. As their easy friendship intensifies into something more, Tate introduces Jonas to a life he’s never known. One filled with acceptance and sex and a love that terrifies and excites them both.
But some inner demons refuse to be shaken off so easily. When Jonas’s old life barges in, he faces a shattering choice, one that could destroy everything he and Tate have fought so hard for. Sometimes love just isn’t enough—and sometimes it’s exactly what you need.

Meet the author: A.M. Arthur was born and raised in the same kind of small town that she likes to write about, a stone's throw from both beach resorts and generational farmland. She's been creating stories in her head since she was a child and scribbling them down nearly as long, in a losing battle to make the fictional voices stop. She credits an early fascination with male friendships (bromance hadn't been coined yet back then) with her later discovery of and subsequent love affair with m/m romance stories. A.M. Arthur's work is available from Samhain Publishing, Carina Press, Dreamspinner Press, and SMP Swerve.
When not exorcising the voices in her head, she toils away in a retail job that tests her patience and gives her lots of story fodder. She can also be found in her kitchen, pretending she's an amateur chef and trying to not poison herself or others with her cuisine experiments.

"Hello! I’m an m/m romance author, who mostly writes contemporary but occasionally delves into paranormal. I live in Hicksville, USA with two rambunctious cats and a large collection of horror film DVDs.
My newest release, Come What May, is the first in a new NA romance series with Carina Press. Jonas Ashcroft is suspended from college after a fraternity prank goes wrong, and he’s stuck working in his aunt’s thrift store—his very first job ever. Tate Dawson runs an LGBT homeless shelter nearby, and when their paths cross, sparks fly. So do insults, misunderstandings, and smexy times.

List story ideas you hope to tackle in the future.
How much time do you have?
I don’t want to regurgitate my list of WIP’s or planned sequels, because I’ve posted those on my website. So instead, I’ll list some of the less defined ideas I want to work on at some point. All m/m, although not all necessarily romance….
A shifter book. I started writing one in April, and I have no idea where it’s going or when I’ll finish, but I adore shifters.
A haunted house book. I’ve done spooky (Prodigal, Frozen), but I want to do some sort of legit haunted house/slasher-style novel.
I’ve always been fascinated by the food truck culture. While I step into a little bit in the second All Saints book, Say It Right, I have notes for a series that uses multiple food trucks as the setting/the thing that ties all of the heroes together.
The insane chemistry between Danny and Doody in the recent FOX live musical version of “Grease” has me wanting to do an m/m in the 1950’s greaser world.
Romantic suspense. Just because I’ve never tried writing one.
Phew, that’s a list.
