2015 Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: Breaking the Habit by J.P. Bowie

Breaking the Habit by J.P. Bowie
Gay Erotic Romance
Publisher: Wilde City Press (February 24, 2015)
Amazon Kindle: Breaking the Habit

Mike Peterson is determined to break the gambling habit that resulted in two failed marriages, no money, no job, plus almost getting himself and his brother killed when loan sharks came looking for their money. In addition, he’s recently been having some doubts about his own sexuality. When his gay brother suggests he get in touch with an old friend, recently out police officer Larry Bertoli, Mike is at first leery of the idea, and their first meeting isn’t exactly ideal.

They decide to meet again and this time more of what they are and what they could mean to one another is revealed during their time together. They begin a tentative friendship that graduates to a first, fumbling attempt at romance. Can they find the secure relationship they both want, or will Mike’s addiction and lack of self-esteem hinder what could possibly be salvation for both men?

The story moved forward enough to keep me invested and I liked the characters, flaws and all.  I can imagine that a lot of men who discover themselves later in life can relate to stories like this one.

Beautifully written story. The author touches all emotions.
