Losing nearly everything leaves room for the one thing they can't live without. A few excruciating minutes pinned in a burning building cost Ryan Ward his job as a firefighter, the easy camaraderie of his coworkers, his girlfriend, and damn near cost him his left leg. Giving up, though, isn't an option. Compared to the alternative, choosing a new profession, going back to school, and renting a room from the college groundskeeper are simple. Until he realizes he's falling in love with his housemate, and things take a turn for the complicated. John Barrett knows about loss. After moving twice to stay in touch with his kids, he could only watch as his ex-wife whisked them away to California. Offering Ryan a room seems better than rattling around the empty house, but as casual friendship moves to something more, and a firestorm of emotions ignites, the big old house feels like tight quarters. It's nothing they can't learn to navigate, though. But when dead bodies start turning up on campus-and one of the guys is a suspect-their first taste of real love could go up in smoke. Warning: Contains two hot men wrestling with a shift in their sexuality, as well as a few positions probably listed in the Gay Kama Sutra. But it's not all about the hot and sweaty-especially when your previously straight life knocks on the door and comes back to more

Review quote

"This was no 'gay for you' story. Instead, this is a moment of revelation, of understanding something so profound about themselves that it threatened to rock their very existence, and, indeed, it does." --Joyfully Jay on "The Rebuilding Year" "Friends to lovers, gay for you, out for you, and still a one sitting read." --Reviews by Jessewave on "The Rebuilding Year" "The plot of "Life Lessons" is engrossing, the characters complex and extremely well-written [...] From start to finish, I was completely taken in by this story." --Blackraven's Reviewsshow more

About Kaje Harper

Kaje Harper grew up in Montreal and spent her teen years writing stories about what guys like Starsky and Hutch really did on their days off. Serious authorship got sidetracked by ventures into psychology, teaching, a biomedical career, and the challenges of raising children. When Kaje took up writing again it was just for fun. Hours of fun. Lots of hours of fun. The stories began piling up, and her husband suggested it was time to try to publish. Kaje currently lives in Minnesota with a creative teenager, a crazy little omnivorous white dog, and a remarkably patient spouse. Visit her at her website: www.louharper.comshow more
