Blurb(s):

Actors Ethan Grey and Alex Haynes are gay, but in Hollywood, they can’t be open unless they’re willing to be typecast in future movies or they’re dating prominent gay producers. Since neither are willing to become stereotypes, and neither have studio boyfriends, they take another path -- hiding their relationship under the cover of a pretend girlfriend.

What works for Ethan, though, doesn’t work for Alex, who screws up to the point of losing his job and the chance to get another. His manager finally finds him another job across the pond, where he meets Nathan Wells.

Nathan can be the prominent producer Alex needs to further his career, but there’s something Alex doesn’t know about the man. Soon Wells grows obsessed with Alex, and he’ll do anything to keep Alex from getting away.

Though Nathan wants Alex for himself, there’s still Ethan to think about. Is the love story between Alex and Ethan really over? Or will Ethan find a way to get his boyfriend back?

Excerpt:

“So what’s wrong about that?”
“What’s wrong about that? Dude, we’re too obvious. We don’t have to say anything, to declare anything, yet they can see it already.”
“Ethan,” Alex said slowly, “are you so ashamed of me, of our relationship, that you want to hide it? Is that what you really mean?”
“I don’t—I’m not—damn it, Alex, I’m not ashamed.” Ethan took a deep breath. “Look. Just see what my brother and sister have done. They know about us, and do they sound happy with that? No. They tease us. They’ll keep doing that. I know both our parents are very understanding. But imagine this.” Alex glanced at him tiredly. “Just imagine this. Aaron and Megan might only tease us, but what will people out there do to us once they know we’re really a couple?”
“I didn’t see any negative remarks on the net. I could even tell that they were excited about our being together.”
Ethan looked at him as if he were the most brainless person he knew.
“Alex, the environment where we work isn’t exactly friendly territory for gay actors. Have you ever thought what would happen if you came out?”
“Then I’ll never come out.” Alex shrugged.

Author Bio:

Iyana writes M/M short stories and novellas. Her works have been published by Evernight Publishing, JMS Books, Books to Go Now, Torquere Press, Bitten Press, Leap of Faith Publishing, Breathless Press, and Alfie Dog Fiction.
Iyana lives in Jakarta, a city famous for its traffic jams, a lot of cars and motorcycles, and people selling stuff on the roads. You can spend two hours on the road going to a place you can reach in half an hour in a normal situation. Thanks to the traffic jams, though, Iyana can come up with a lot of stories, mostly shorties, as she prefers to spend the time during her trips writing into her cell phone rather than sleeping.
Another thing Iyana loves is kitties. Right now she has three of them. Their names are Cil, Horus, and Betsy, and one kitten. When she doesn’t write, she plays with them, or they would play with her when she writes.
