This contemporary romance has been somewhat long in coming due to a number of deadlines—all of which seemed to fall around the same time. But despite the distractions and delays, I’m really happy to be releasing this now—pre-Valentine’s Day, that is.
Last year everything seemed to happen the night before or early on the day of any holiday—when they happened at all! 🙁 So I’m glad that this is out before the 14th of February.
To remind everybody: Side Effects appeared for several weeks on Six Sentence Sunday, and here is its shiny new blurb:
Max Caulfield is secretly attracted to his best friend, Damien. One night Max’s fantasy is presented to him on a silver platter and he eats it up with a spoon, only to be thrown for a loop when Damien confesses his love.
Cute and super intelligent, Damien Mackenzie is right down Max’s alley and has been in love with him ever since they won the school math contest last year. He’s thrilled when Max accepts his offer to hook up, then confused when Max rebuffs him afterward.
When their psychology research project takes an unexpected turn, Max is forced to confront his feelings about Damien. But the side effects have changed Damien’s mind. Can Max find a cure and heal the rift in their relationship?
Side Effects (16,652 words, $3.99) is available at all my regular etailers.
Thanks for all the support from everybody who read and commented throughout the writing and revisions!
