2015 Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: Chasing Death Metal Dreams by Kaje Harper

Chasing Death Metal Dreams by Kaje Harper
Transgender Contemporary Romance
ebook, 265 pages
Published August 2nd 2015 by MMRomanceGroup.com
edition language English

Carlos Medina has spent years of sweat, pain, effort, and money becoming the man he is. He writes original songs, plays lead guitar, and wears his death metal front-man persona like armor. With an excellent drummer and a talented bassist, his band, KnifeSwitch, has what it takes to succeed, if they can just catch a break. But it’s been a long road already, and there’s still a mountain left to climb. Carlos isn’t looking for anything more in his personal life than an occasional hook-up with a hot guy, preferably outside the less-than-gay-friendly metal scene.

Nate Goldstein has no intention of dating a musician. His twin brother fronts a band, and he knows band guys are all busy, broke, and obsessed with their music. But Carlos catches his artist’s eye. Nate is wary - he has a history of picking the wrong guys. Still, he might be willing to break some personal rules to find out what’s behind Carlos’s dark gaze and imaginative lyrics.

Getting together the first time is easy and fun. The second time is more complicated. And when music, ambition, and personalities clash, the guys will have to decide if they have a future worth fighting for.


What a wonderful story! This year I chose „transgender” category in addition to the „gay” one I usually read to expand my horizons and leave my comfort zone a little. What can I say? I loved the characters and I really feel like I can sympathize with them, especially Carlos. He was a very likeable guy, despite his difficult childhood. And he was definitely a MAN, the author did a great job portraying him as such.
