Rule #1: Keep running.

Jag’s rules have kept him safe and free since he escaped conversion therapy, but that was before he walked into Heaven and Hell. A no-strings fling with the club owner, Michael, turns into so much more as Jag finds himself breaking one rule after another.

Michael hasn’t been able to commit to anyone since his partner died, until Jag walks into his club. Falling in lust with the elfin young dancer is easy, and his heart is quick to follow.

Michael gives Jag a reason to stay, but fear rules Jag’s heart more than love. Despite his deepening feelings for Michael, Jag knows he can’t stay. Can he?

**Contains adult themes, content, and language.**


“I need to say a few things,” Michael said, pausing as he felt Jag stiffen. “I need to be honest with you.”

“No.” Jag’s hand pressed against Michael’s mouth, no doubt transferring silver smudges to his lips. “I’m happy with the lie you told me last night.”

Well, at least Michael knew he definitely hadn’t fooled Jag. Gently, he moved Jag’s hand away from his mouth. His hand became coated in a sparkling silver sheen.

“I’m not.”

Jag clenched his teeth.

“I care about you,” Michael said. “And I can’t pretend otherwise.”

“You don’t know me,” Jag hissed.

“Don’t I?”

Jag became even more rigid, his muscles so hard beneath Michael’s fingers he felt like a statue as well as looking like one.

“I don’t have to know about your past to know who you are now.”

Today I’m delighted to welcome C. J. Baty on her Blog Tour with an exclusive excerpt from her latest release

Exclusive Excerpt

Starting Over | The Knights Club #1

“We’ve narrowed the field of suspects down to two. Both employees. We’ve also noted a known prostitute meeting a client here. I’m warning you, if he’s caught exchanging money in here, I’ll close this place down quicker than you can shit.”

“What the hell,” Xavier exclaimed. “You are casing my place?”Xavier lunged, but Seb pulled him back.“Xavier. No!”“Ah, I’m not that stupid, but I sure as hell want to,” Xavier felt blood rushing through his body at the smug smile on Zach’s face.

“Just police procedure, boys.” Zach said as he walked away.

After the club closed for the night, Xavier double checked the locks before he set the alarm. He found Seb in his office stretched out on the sofa, arms behind his head, staring at the ceiling.

“Why won’t he just leave me the fuck alone? Write me off for being a faggot and get on with his life?” He asked when Xavier had settled in the chair behind his desk.

“I don’t know,” Xavier answered, then added. “Maybe he really does care. Maybe he really believes he is doing the right thing.” Seb glanced at Xavier. Eyebrows arched.

“You must be as crazy as he is. He doesn’t care about me. It’s all about him. All about his reputation. He doesn’t want me to be out for the same reason my dad didn’t. How would it look for other cops to know he had a faggot for a son or a brother?”

Xavier let Seb carry on and when he got quiet he asked him a question.“Are you really happy working and living here?” Xavier needed to know if it was true.

Seb sat up, crossed to Xavier’s desk, and sat on the edge.“I meant every word I told Zach. I’ve never been happier. This place is the home I never had. No pretending or hiding away from disapproving eyes, nobody to prove anything to.”

Seb reached out and stroked Xavier’s cheek with his fingertips.

Leaning still closer, he kissed Xavier sweetly. “I don’t know what this is between us, but I’m willing to stick around long enough to see where it goes,” Seb said.

“What about you?” Xavier thought it over and realized he’d been thinking about it for days now. He wanted to find out, too, good or bad. No one had made him feel this way in a long time.

“Stay with me tonight,” Seb whispered against Xavier’s lips. “Only if I get to taste you this time,” Xavier smiled.

Seb’s face flushed and his eyes sparkled. “That can be arranged.”

Length: 25,000 words approx.


Xavier Knight was starting his life over. A new city. A new club. The past was gone, and he had everything to look forward to… except… love.


That ship had sailed, never to return. He was too old to play the games or stack up the one night stands. Until an old enemy’s son walked into his club and his heart.

Sebastian Brady was through. Through with hiding who he was. Through letting his brother officers dictate his life. And completely through, with his family telling him who he was. He turned his back on his badge and his family’s heritage in the Atlanta police force.

But, he never imagined that he’d be serving drinks in a gay bar and working for the hottest silver fox he had ever seen in his life.

Xavier and Seb have a lot to learn from each other. Hopefully, their growing love will survive Xavier’s past, Seb’s family, and a host of characters with secrets of their own, who all work at the Knights Club.

 C. J. Baty lives in southwest Ohio. Her heart, however, lives in the mountains of Tennessee where she hopes to retire someday. The mountains have always provided her with inspiration and a soothing balm to the stresses of everyday life.

The dream of writing her own stories started in high school but was left on the back burner of life until her son introduced her to fan fiction and encouraged her to give it a try. She found that her passion for telling a story was still there and writing them down to share with others was much more thrilling than she had ever expected.

She has a loving and supportive family who don’t mind fixing their own meals when she is in the middle of a story, and a network of friends who have encouraged and cheered her on in her quest of being an author.

One thing she has learned from life and she is often heard to say is: “You are never too old to follow your dream!”

Great intro to this new series from C. J. Baty

Copy of Copy of STARTING OVER Final CoverStarting Over by C.J. Baty

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is quite short but pretty full of detail.

It’s a really nice May to December romance between an older guy who’s looking to start over with his new club and a cop who’s sick of the homophobia he encounters from his family and his fellow officers.

There’s not much angst, it’s medium steam but both Xavier and Seb were nicely drawn characters and their on page chemistry came across well.

There’s also a whole host of other fascinating secondary characters in and around the club which will make up the other novels in the series.

#ARC kindly received from the author in return for an honest and unbiased review.
