Hard work and a bit of luck have brought recognition to goth band Gawth and hooked them up on a solid gig accompanying another more well known band for the next six weeks.

The band members are Cheitan or Chei and Giovanni or G who are quietly out of the closet while drummer Lilith or Lil is a transvestite.  The guys aren’t your average band members but they’ve been friends for years and accept their differences.

Chei and G have had an on/off sexual relationship for years but lately Chei has been wishing they could become exclusive.  But, when G announces he wants to be exclusive with old flame Geoffrey, Chei is completely floored.  He realizes that he’s waited too long to tell G how he truly feels.  Can Chei step back and go on without G in his bed or say something that could endanger their friendship and their band?  Either way Chei figures he’s screwed.

The Band is an emotional tour de force! From witty, sexy moments to dark and dangerous times and back again. In the beginning The Band is light, fun entertainment but once the layers are peeled back there is so much more going on below the surface. There are twists and turns galore on this emotional roller coaster.  The Band is well written from scorching hot sexual encounters to dealing with possible abuse although the climax is somewhat unexpected and abrupt before all the questions are answered.  Overall, The Band is sexy and tumultuous enjoyment sure to please readers.
