What Love Means Preview

Max is a thrill-seeker on the road but doesn’t take chances with his heart. He has a loving (and annoying) family, a part-time job, and his motorcycle. He doesn’t need anything or anyone else. Certainly not a blonde rich kid who’s never had to work for anything in his life.

Cal might not have a job, but he’s always busy. Getting into a good college takes work and it’s worth it even if he doesn’t have any time for himself. He doesn’t need a rugged dark-haired boy distracting him.

When Max and Cal’s siblings start competing in spelling bees, these opposites are thrown together. They have nothing in common. Except for their attraction to each other. Max and Cal know how to spell love, but they’re about to find out what it means.


Entirely Too Gay

If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em. Then beat ‘em.
The days of being bullied are over for Alfonso Flores. A transformative summer leaves the junior bigger and buffer, but why does he join the wrestling team? A guy, of course.

To get closer to Dallas, Alfonso will brave the testosterone-filled macho world of groping other guys for sport. At least wrestling seems easier than dealing with his overprotective father. Or grappling with his newfound feelings for his former tormentor.

As the year progresses, Alfonso realizes his physical changes were only the beginning. And he doesn’t recognize or like the person he’s becoming. Can he win the battles ahead and get the guy without losing himself?
