Jay Moran felt something good was about to occur in his life
and knew Simon Chase was it the moment he walked into the
rundown bar Jay owns .
Jay also knew his big premonition had to be more than
a quickie in his tiny office in less then 20 minutes of
knowing each other, Jay felt that Simon was about to become
important to him.
Jay was like no one Simon has ever encountered before, Jay
had him wanting more and that scared Simon.
There were vast differences between Jay and Simon
such as race and their place in society.
African American and from a well to do family that
have prominent ties in society, Simon had no issue with
Jayís Irish-American blue collar up bringing.
What unsettled Simon and awed him was Jayís openness
with his sexuality and his insistence that others accept it.
Simon wants Jay like he has never wanted anyone else,
he knew being in the closet could destroy their fragile
relationship, but Simon wasnít ready to come out.
doesnít just meet my expectations, it surpasses them!
Bonnie Dee wrote a wonderful interracial romance novel that
doesnít sugarcoat the big issues or over dramatize them.
The characters are very real, Simon and Jay are

Jay is awesome.
Heís open, honest and caring but heís not as confident as he
would like people to believe.
Heís afraid of losing his family and Simon so he
fights for them by not allowing them to push him away.
Simonís vulnerability is much more transparent and
his coping mechanism is to hide his true self.
As he allows Jay deeper into his life, we see Simon
slowly become more comfortable in his own skin.

I do, I see this as being constantly re-read. I Joyfully
