Kimber “Kim” Donlyn

Mistakes… I can’t say I’ve made any. I couldn’t have imagined some of the things that came my way, but I wouldn’t change them for anything because if I did, I wouldn’t be the man I am, nor would I have the people I love. I live my life without regrets because life is too short… That’s a lesson I would prefer to skip, but that’s not possible.

I’m a drag queen—Gimme Dong—and I co-own a drag club, Ben Dover’s Dragtime Cabaret. I’ve had men come and go in my life, but one stuck around—in a most peculiar way. Our relationship isn’t for everyone, but it works for us. I’ll never find another man like mine. Here’s how my grand love affair started…

##

Stephen “Skip” Mitchell

I’m a baseball scout for the Miami Sharks, and I’m a cliché—I find a boy in every port. One night I get some life changing news, and I don’t want to be alone with it. Down the block from my apartment, there’s a bar, and lo-and-behold—there’s a stool that fits me well. The bartender is just the eye candy I need, but he becomes much more than I can imagine I’d want… or need.

Finding the person who is made for me is a blessing. I find my priorities change in ways I’d have never believed. This is the beginning of a story I never thought I’d tell.

Excerpt

There was a cute guy—about five-eight with light brown hair and a bubble butt that deserved an award—pouring drinks. He had a big smile and exuded positivity, based on his body language.

He had some meat on his bones, which I liked a lot, and the five guys at the bar were laughing at whatever story he was telling. I decided his jocularity was just the pick-me-up I needed, so I walked over and took a seat in an empty chair to listen.

“So, I had my wetsuit around my waist while I was checking the equipment before we got on the boat. I’d seen him giving me the once over a couple of times, so I just smiled and went about my work. Unfortunately, his girlfriend didn’t miss him checking me out either.

“After everyone was settled and we were headed out to open water, I started organizing things for the dive.” I could see the other guys at the bar were intrigued by his story, and I was looking for any fucking thing to take my mind off the news I’d just received. The bartender seemed to notice me and nodded before he turned to his friends.

“Hang on, y’all.” The good-looking guy held up a finger and headed in my direction. “Hello and welcome. I’m Kim, and I pour the booze. What can I get for you?” He had the most incredible brown eyes and a killer grin.

“Uh… I’ll have a Jack on the rocks, please. Actually, make it a double.” The guy—Kim—nodded and stepped away to pour my drink, returning to where I sat before he tossed a pink napkin on the bar, along with a fresh bowl of snack mix and my drink.

“‘S this about the size of a Tuesday night crowd? I live in the neighborhood and travel a lot. Been meaning to come in, but I’m usually too tired by the time I get home.” I was shit at chit-chat with a cute guy.

He grinned, thankfully. “It was busy earlier—Queen Karaoke semi-finals were tonight. We’ve been having a contest since the beginning of the year for the best drag karaoke performer in Miami. Next Tuesday we’ll have the finals from eight until eleven. What’s your name?”

I took a sip of the mind-numbing elixir that was the dream-child of Jasper Newton “Jack” Daniel. It burned all the way down, but it didn’t burn away my broken heart.

I placed the glass on the napkin and looked into sparkling eyes. He was a damn attractive guy, and his smile was uplifting to my shitty state of mind. “I’m Stephen, but someone as handsome as you better call me Skip, as in ‘let’s Skip the small talk’.” The bartender released a raucous laugh, and I immediately liked the guy.

About The Author

I grew up in the rural Midwest before moving to the East Coast with a dashing young man who swept me off my feet, and we’ve now settled in the desert of Nevada. I write M/M contemporary romance, subgenres: sweet low angst, age-gap, cowboys, mysteries, and military/mercenary to name a few.

I am a firm believer in “Love is Love” regardless of how it presents itself, and I’m a staunch ally of the LGBTQIA+ community.

I have a loving, supportive family, and I feel blessed by the universe and thankful every day for all I have been given. I’m old enough to know how to have fun, but too old to care what others think about my definition of a good time. In my heart and soul, I believe I hit the cosmic jackpot. Cheers!

We never should’ve been anything more than roommates.

DREW: Life dealing me a hard blow is nothing new. What’s one more sucker punch?

When my uncle offers me a job working at his MMA training center, I jump at the chance to turn my life around…not upside down and questioning everything I know about myself.

Light Heavyweight Champion Asher Ramsey is the definition of a ladies’ man. His stormy gray eyes and inked skin call to the artist in me and make me itch for my pencils and sketch pad so I can capture every detail. If I’m honest, they make me itch to touch every detail too, which confuses me.

After he offers to let me stay in his guest room, I discover there’s more to Asher than he allows the world to see.

ASHER: My life is a lie. A play written and directed by my PR manager.

With the biggest fight of my career only weeks away, my focus is on securing my title. Losing my belt to some new up-and-comer isn’t an option, and I can’t afford any distractions. Or an unwanted attraction.

When Drew begins working at the gym where I train, my priorities waver. To make things worse, I offer to let him stay with me until he finds a place of his own. It’ll be fine. Sure, I’m attracted to him, but I’m an expert at hiding behind the mask of a straight man. Besides, he’s completely off-limits. Not that it matters–we don’t even play for the same team.

What’s the worst that can happen?

Bios are challenging. I don’t have a clue how to write about myself. Fictional characters, sure! Me? Not so much. Lol. It’s the reason my author bio stayed practically blank until after I finished my second novel.

Who am I? Well, I live in Texas where the heat and I don’t get along. One day I hope to call Northeast USA home. I’m a wife and mother of 2 ridiculously cute kids. I have 2 dogs and 1 cat, the latter of which is a spoiled brat, but she’s my spoiled brat. ❤

I fell in love with writing during elementary school with my first “bare book”. And only within the last few years have I been able to try my hand at it as a career (which I have high hopes for btw!).

Spending the day under a fluffy blanket reading or writing away on my laptop with a mountain of coffee is my idea of time well spent. I get to live so many lives through books that I consider myself genuinely lucky to call myself an avid reader.

That’s me in a nutshell. I hope I’m finding my place among like-minded people. ❤❤❤ And I hope you’ll enjoy reading the stories I write.
