Hip hop dancer, Skylar, is excited about a new job he’s gotten for the summer at a theme park near his home. This is his chance to show his family that he can make money doing what he loves. Skylar wasn’t counting on falling for Ryan, the hot, Australian dancer that he is paired up with, but the pull is too strong for him to fight.
Ryan is set to go back home to Australia after the park closes at the end of the summer. He didn’t plan on falling in love with his gorgeous dancing partner, but his heart had other ideas. As he and Skylar get closer, their impending separation starts to affect the both of them. Will they do what it takes to be together?

Exclusive Excerpt

I run my finger across the nameplate that has Skylar engraved into it. I slowly open the locker and instantly, I've fallen in love with all the clothes hanging inside of it. The pants are black, skinny jeans with some cuts and fraying up and down the legs. The shirt is made out of black denim and has silver zippers, rivets, and safety pins in different locations. They’re going for a punk-goth type of feel which I think is very cool.

I take off my clothes and fold them, placing them in my locker. I squeeze into the tight, black jeans, careful not to zip an important part of my body in the process.  Thankfully, these jeans have spandex in them and stretch to fit me more comfortably. 

There’s a black cotton t-shirt for me to wear underneath the denim one. After I put them both on, I find fingerless, black leather gloves sitting on the shelf.  I slide my hands into the cool leather and fasten the Velcro on each wrist. 

My attention turns to the boots just under the bench. I inspect them and notice there are a couple of pairs in my size. I pick the ones that have buckles, studs, and laces that stop right above the ankle, and try them on. Even though they fit perfectly, it’s going to feel different dancing in this heavy of a boot.

I glance at the locker next to mine which has Ryan’s name on it.  I’m nervous to meet the guy I’m being paired up with; I hope he’s cute and not an asshole. I meet plenty of dancers who think they’re better than everyone else, always feeling the need to outshine their competition.

As I’m lacing my other boot, a quiet knock on the door gets my attention. 

“It’s open and I’m not naked,” I call out.

I hear laughing that’s too deep to be Rachel’s. A gorgeous guy opens the door and peeks his head inside. As soon as he sees me and our eyes meet, my heart skips a beat. His hair is brown with blond highlights. His nose is somewhat straight and it looks good on him. His deep brown eyes have a sparkle to them. I notice that he has tons of piercings in his ears. He’s just my type.

“Hi, I’m Ryan. I’m guessing we’re partners,” he says with a strong accent.

Oh my gosh! He’s Australian. I’m doomed.

Meet Grein Murray

When I'm not writing I like going to concerts. Music is a big part of my life, I've played bass guitar since I was a teen. I love nature and enjoy hiking and working with causes that help protect our planet and wild animals.

I have loved books all of my life and have always enjoyed escaping the ordinary world by getting lost in a good book. I read a lot of different genres of books but have fallen in love with MM. I support the gay community and hope one day people will see that love is love and that it is a beautiful thing no matter your gender, race or religion.

I am an avid animal lover and have quite a collection of pets in my home. I love ancient history and have studied Alexander the Great as well as Egypt and it's pharaohs. I also am very interested in angels and have researched them and will put that to use in future books.

I hope that my readers continue to fall in love with my characters and that my stories touch their lives and bring them happiness.
