Saugatuck Book 1
One summer can change everything…
Topher Carlisle’s always been the black sheep–literally–in his middle-class family. Biracial, gay, and genderfluid, his family doesn’t think he’ll amount to much, and he just might believe them.
After a bout of severe depression has put both his academic and financial prospects in danger, he accepts his best friend’s offer to stay in her family’s summer home while he works to make up the shortfall of his athletic scholarship. But his tendency for self-sabotage is strong and soon a terrible mistake in judgment leaves him homeless.
From the moment he sees Topher, artist Jace Sieger knows that this is someone he needs to capture on canvas. He’s no stranger to poor life choices, and he sees something in Topher worth nurturing.
The challenge, though, is chipping through Topher’s prickly defenses to reach the sensitive, traumatized soul beneath. With the help of his friends Geoff and Robin, maybe, just maybe, they can convince Topher he’s worth something after all, and that a few mistakes don’t make him irredeemable. What starts as a casual vacation fling grows into something that will change both of them forever.
