Garrett Steiner loves his grandmother.
But when she rents a billboard in the middle of Times Square, hoping to find him a husband, he isn’t so sure anymore. Bad enough everyone at the “Crossroads of the World” thinks he’s a joke—now his face is plastered all over the news. He’s already in enough trouble with the principal of his school, who isn’t thrilled to have a gay teacher. It might be two dateless years since his divorce, but no way is he going to answer any of the thousand emails he’s received.
Except….maybe one. The long-haired man with the soulful eyes.
After the devastating loss of his husband, rock star Remi Angel has hit rock bottom. His career is in shambles and he’s spiraling. Fast.
With the media ready for the next juicy scandal, he leaves the limelight behind to return to his roots and spend time with his beloved grandfather. Seeing Garrett’s billboard ad, Remi sends him an email, figuring nothing will come of it, but hey. At least he’s trying.
Except Garrett does answer, and when they meet, both feel that special spark. It’s terrifying yet wondrous, a combination of desire and hope mixed with fear.
The fear of loving again.
Of coming alive again.
This wasn’t supposed to happen.
But anything can happen in a New York minute…even love.
In a New York Minute is a slow burn, rock star, M/M romance filled with longing, doubt and swoony moments. There are love songs, a secret identity, a wise, bagel-loving grandpa, and an unrepentant bubbe who knows what’s best for her grandson.
It answers the question: once in a lifetime can’t happen twice…or can it?
“I always worried about you when you told us you wanted to be a famous rock star, that you’d change from the loving young man you were brought up to be. I’m glad to see you haven’t.”
Remi bit off the end of his sandwich. “I have. I’ve done lots of things I’m not proud of.” He chewed without tasting it. “Sometimes I don’t recognize myself.”
“I do.” A surprisingly strong hand gripped his wrist. “You might be older and carry scars around your heart, but you’ll always be that little boy who didn’t mind spending time with me. In your grief, you might see only darkness trapping you in a world that knows you as Remi Angel, famous rock star, but to me, you’re my Jeremiah. My shining light. All I want is for you to be happy so I can see that light shine for someone else.”
