2015 Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: What you are by Erin E. Keller

What you are by Erin E. Keller
Gay Contemporary Romance
Publisher: JMS Books LLC (February 8, 2015)
Amazon Kindle: What you are

Alex walks down the road of his life, apparently without any detours. He has a job, friends, a nice apartment and a girlfriend who meets his needs. A smooth life lived on a smooth road.

But when Daniel shows up at his door, Alex meets the first bump in road -- which turns out to be more like a boulder -- in his way.

Daniel is a gorgeous, warm, affectionate man, one who will force Alex to deal with something that happened years ago, something that made him take the safe route through life. With Daniel, he finally realizes that he'd shut down his true self, he begins the most difficult part of his journey -- the one that could take him to Daniel and to happiness.


Alex is hostile and difficult towards Daniel with no apparent reasons.  A little bit more background patching his transition would be better.  Alex was such a sulky bully at first, I almost wondered if this is really a romance. The story picked up pace and eventually the romance started to make more sense in readers eyes.  I still find Alex's earlier behavior odd and Daniel's attraction to him unfounded.
