It’s the summer before college, and I’ve received an invitation to the Radcliff estate—a place my dad took us from and swore he’d never revisit.
I accept my aunt’s peace offering because I want to see my cousin again.
However, upon my arrival, I realize he’s changed.
Reid is cold and distant.
When he does open up, it creates something forbidden between us.
I remind him at every attempt that we’re “cousins.”
But slowly, those desires become too hard to fight.
Seven years ago, my best friend left, and it shattered my heart.
Even worse, she never reached out.
I was adamant about guarding myself around Cassie.
But the closer we get, the more difficult it is to keep my hands off her.
Now that she’s in my grasp, I won’t ever let her go.
She’s mine.
No matter what our family or anyone thinks.

Behind These Eyes 

A Slow Burn | Coming Out | College MM Romance


By Jen Samson

Hosted by DS Book Promotions






Available on Kindle Unlimited


“If this is a sin, then I’ll burn in hell for all eternity. I’ll never deny you, not in this life and not in the next.”


When Chase Batton’s wild ways land him six months away from failing to graduate from college, he is forced into a remedial program with the university’s academic star, Jaxon Lee. Either that or answer to the heads of the third richest family in the world: his parents. The latter is no choice at all.

Jaxon is distant and cold, and unimpressed by Chase’s social and economic rank. On the other hand, Chase couldn’t be bothered by the opinions of the supposedly hottest gay guy on campus. He was, after all, a long way up the food chain, not to mention straight as an arrow on the bullseye.

But something happens during a vicious argument, and everything changes.

Chase is left reeling, and he soon learns that Jaxon is keeping secrets too…
