“Wow, I’m kinda lost for words, I loved this book and can’t recommend it highly enough. Set amongst the mountains of Gatlinburg, Christopher lives alone in his Grandmother’s house having been shunned by his religious mother and stepfather. He settled there after failing to make it big in Nashville and now works as a singer on stage at a theme park. Jesse has been a long time fan of Christopher’s, admiring him from afar. The two meet when Christopher commissions him to make a locket for his grandmother. Jesse grew up in that town and is surprised to discover that Christopher doesn’t know about his baggage. He not only has two young children but also has a wife who is brain dead and being kept alive by machines – a decision he wants overturned. The story follows these men as they embark on a relationship and find themselves struggling to cope with the present and the past and not knowing how a future together would be possible. The chemistry between them is palpable and their story’s heart breaking. I was hooked from the first page and will certainly be checking out other works by this author.”

via Goodreads | Cheryl Scotland, The United Kingdom’s review of Smoky Mountain Dreams.

Sometimes holding on means letting go Christopher Ryder and Jesse Birch are two men hanging on to the past. While Christopher has let go of his failure as a country singer in Nashville, he's still trying to please his narrow-minded, non-accepting family. His beloved Gran loves him the way he is, but Christopher feels painfully invisible to everyone else. He’s happy enough performing at the Smoky Mountain Dreams theme park in Tennessee, but even when Christopher is center stage he aches for someone to see the real him. There's more than meets the eye when it comes to bisexual Jesse. He's raising two kids and fighting with family after a tragic accident took his children’s mother. There's no room in his life for dating, his kids are his priority, and he doesn't want more than an occasional hook-up. He sure as hell doesn't want to fall hard for his favorite local singer, but when Christopher walks into his jewelry studio, Jesse hears a new song in his heart.
