Blurb:  Everyone deserves a second chance. Or do they? Sean and Martim fell in love at Harvard. Things broke apart when Martim fell into a downward spiral of addiction after his father died. Sean kicked him out but has regretted it ever since. He’s never gotten over losing Martim. But then, not many aspects of his life have lived up to his collegiate dreams.

When he’s sent to evaluate Martim’s family hotel for foreclosure, Sean is once again in the position to put Martim out on the street. In the time since they parted, Martim has pulled himself together, although both health and financial problems linger as a result of his years as an addict.

Exclusive Excerpt from Learning from Isaac

by Dev Bentham


“Isaac, what are you doing here?” I asked once the door was closed.

He let go of my hand and stood close. “I work here. You paid for a block dance so you have half an hour. Do you want to talk or get what you paid for?”

I touched his cheek. “Your bruise is gone.”

Tears formed in his eyes. “It’s your call, Professor. We’re not at school now. What do you want?”

I looked at him, our eyes almost at the same height. My alcohol-addled brain slogged from thought to thought. One shocked part of my brain screamed that I should bolt and forget I’d ever been here. But the man I dreamed about every night was there in front of me, mine to take. Touching him would shift where we stood with each other and we’d never get our delicate balance back. On the other hand, simply knowing what Isaac did for a living changed everything, and whatever else we did wouldn’t make me forget. As if reading my mind, he whispered, “Whatever happens here stays here.” Continue reading

Blurb:  Money can’t buy happiness. Jacob Nussbaum knows this better than anyone. He’s a corporate lawyer deep inside a huge New York firm, where he works overtime, sacrifices any chance at a personal life, and has been selling his soul for years. With a secretary as his only friend, he trudges on, until his whole world is blown apart by a manila envelope of photos—evidence that one of the firm’s partners is the dirtiest lawyer in one hell of a filthy business.

In search of the truth, Jacob travels to a small northern Wisconsin fishing resort. There he meets Ben Anderson, a brutally lonely man, who knocks him off his feet. Ben prompts Jacob to reevaluate his life. He’s a dozen years older than Jacob, still recovering from the death of his long time love, and doesn’t want to leave anyone a widower. But a jaded New Yorker on a soul-searching mission might be just the man to convince the grieving Ben that it’s never too late to begin again.
