Following Your Muse
In a lot of ways, CROSSROADS is the book that was never meant to be.
After COLLIDE I was nervous about writing another “gay for you” book. I think they’re really hard to pull off and make realistic. I was proud of Noah and Cooper’s story and wasn’t sure about tempting fate by trying a second gay for you. I finished the Blackcreek series and the Broken Pieces series. I wrote ROCK SOLID and then planned to write the second Rock Solid book. While writing ROCK SOLID, I was really excited to write the next book, and I still am, but when I tried to write it, I couldn’t. I started it three times, but it just wasn’t right. I knew it wasn’t right and then a funny thing happened…two men made their presence known to me. I didn’t know these guys. I hadn’t sat down to plan their story, and they hadn’t made appearances in another series. Nick and Bryce were suddenly just there and they demanded their story be told. They wouldn’t shut up until I wrote it.
If you’ve read CROSSROADs and met Bryce, the fact that he wouldn’t stop talking won’t surprise you.
I admit I was nervous about it. I’d promised the next Rock Solid book. I was nervous about writing another gay for you—and this book wasn’t only a gay for you on one side, neither man had ever been attracted to another man before, yet here they were, telling me how they met, showing me how they fell in love, and making me feel the connection that they felt for each other.
In some ways, this book is a little sexier than my others because Nick and Bryce are learning as they go along. They’re fumbling through and experimenting to find out what they like and don’t like when it comes to being with another man. That made me a little nervous too, but at this point, I realized I just had to follow Nick and Bryce’s lead. They wouldn’t let me do anything else.
I’m so glad I did. I loved writing their story. I fell in love right along with them, and the same way Nick and Bryce put their faith in each other, jumping head first into a relationship that they didn’t understand, I put my faith in them and wrote their story the way it came to me.
I hope you guys enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.
Crossroads by Riley Hart
Published ~ 28th July 2015
Genre ~ Contemporary M/M Romance
After divorcing the woman he’d been with since he was seventeen, Nick Fuller is starting over. He owns the restaurant of his dreams and he’s determined to meet new people, find new passions, and experience life to its fullest. Easier said than done—that is until he meets his new neighbor, Bryce Tanner…
Bryce is all about a good time. He plans to show Nick how it’s done, help him meet a few women, and enjoy the gift of the single life he’s been given. But things don’t go as planned, and soon they realize they’d rather be together than with anyone else.
Neither man has ever wanted another guy, but there’s a connection between them from the start—a spark they can’t deny. They find themselves navigating an unfamiliar new world and dealing with unforeseen obstacles. Physical desire isn’t enough, and now Nick and Bryce are at a crossroads. They have to decide which way to go: the easy path they’ve always followed, or the one that's determined to trip them up at every turn.
