Inseparable

(Port Java 01)
by

Sloan Johnson

Trevor and Gabe never knew life without the other. As only children, they grew up as close as brothers, but their love grew to something more. Something they couldn’t talk about because their parents wouldn’t understand.

Gabe is gay and unapologetic about his sexuality. He refuses to live his life in the shadows, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t harboring secrets.

Trevor is his parents’ miracle child and he doesn’t want to hurt them. Coming out, admitting he’s in love with Gabe, could ruin everything. 

Heading off to college was supposed to finally free them to be together, but nothing is as easy as it seems. Can they find a way to navigate this new world, living and loving openly?

Blurb: Dax: My life ended six years ago. No, really. I was dead on the side of the road following a gruesome motorcycle accident. From what I’ve been told, it’s only because of one stubborn man that I have another chance to make something of my life. I no longer hate him for screwing up what I thought I wanted. I want to thank him.

NEED to tell him what his actions mean to me.

Now, I’m headed back to the town I’ve never set foot in even though it’s a huge part of my life. I’m not thrilled about that, but the job offers haven’t exactly been flowing in. They’ll probably think I’m crazy, because there’s no way I won’t be able to look at every guy I walk past, wondering if he’s the one who saved me.

Michael: My entire life, I wanted to save lives. I’d earned a full-ride scholarship and had been accepted to med schools across the country. I was so close to making those dreams a reality until the night held a dying man in my arms. I’ve never been able to get the images of his lifeless body caked in mud out of my head. Even when the paramedics tried to take over trying to save him, I couldn’t let go. I never let go. Eventually, my guilt over not doing more cost me everything but my son. And now, I worry I’ll lose him if I don’t get it together.

I’ve often thought that if I could find him, maybe I could get some closure and finally get my life back on track. Now he’s here and I’m more of a mess than ever. Once the truth comes out, will he keep trying to save me or will he realize that it’s too late?

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Sloan has always managed to give a reader a story that will draw them in and keep them captivated. I have enjoyed reading her stories although this one I am not really sure. It just seemed to be missing something to be perfect but I couldn’t put my hands on it. It was well written with a lot of depth to it. The story itself was very entertaining and a bit of a tear jerker.

This is a story about a man having a second chance at life. It is a very touching story about how someone can turn their lives around but it also shows how one can cause harm in their lives without the meaning to. It has a lot of heart in the story and to me has a little life lesson hidden in the story. This story is meant to be soft, tender, loving and sweet. She pulled this off.

Dax had been injured in a motorcycle accident that almost cost him his life. Now he has come back to the town that he really had not wanted to. However he wanted to thank the one man who saves his life. Michael has had a wonderful life but it was mixed with the pain of losing his wife. He was now raising his son the best he could do. Now Dax wanted to not only thank him but help him. Feelings start slowly with these two but soon they find themselves in love.

Now for me it is hard to see how Michael went from straight to gay, but it turned out perfect for this story. The subject of how Dax was injured and almost dying is a tender subject, but only because a friend’s fiancé just wrecked his cycle a few days ago and will be in the hospital for a very long time healing. It actually made this story more real for me. Then there is the fact that these two guys are just perfect for each other, a bonus for me.

I enjoyed reading this story and would definitely be interested in more stories from this author. I wished the ending was a bit more however it doesn’t take away from the story.

I would definitely recommend this book.

Drew Jackson seemed to have it all. He has a family who loves and supports him, a tight circle of friends, and is a rising star with the Milwaukee Mavericks. Then, it all begins to unravel. Cam, the only man he’s ever loved, falls head over heels for Drew’s teammate. He makes a critical mistake in the playoffs that he’s not sure he’ll be able to recover from. And then, his world really crashes around him…

Eric Sapp may no longer play for the Mavericks, but he’s still one of the guys. No one could have imagined how much his life would change when he agreed to help his former teammates mourn the end of their run for the pennant. After stopping a brutal attack, Eric is forced to face the feelings that’ve been growing for his roommate, Drew. That’d be much easier if Drew wasn’t hell-bent on pushing everyone away as he recovers.

Neither of them were counting on Bryce Shaw. He and Drew enjoyed the one night they spent together, but knew it was unlikely they’d be anything more since they lived in different parts of the country. After Bryce is relocated to help a failing LGBT homeless outreach, he wants to explore something more with the Mavericks’ short stop.

As much as Eric wishes he could be the one to help his friend, he knows Bryce holds the key to Drew’s recovery. Will pushing the two back together be the biggest mistake of his life or will they all learn there is strength in numbers?

Heart Rating: ♥♥♥♥4Hearts
Blurb: Jason Klein’s living with the fallout from a decision he knew was the right one at the time. He never told anyone about the love of his life, which left him to mourn alone when he found out the man he gave his heart to, had been killed in combat. Now, his heart has had time to heal, but he’s not sure he’s ready to let himself move on. Until he meets Cam Morgan…

Without a job lined up following graduation, Cam Morgan took his best friend up on his offer to move to Milwaukee and stay with him until he could get on his feet. The last thing he wanted to do the day after getting to town was go to a party filled with a bunch of jocks. Sure, they were “professional athletes” but Cam was convinced that bigger bank accounts didn’t make them any more accepting of people like him. He certainly didn’t expect to meet Jason, the Mavericks’ catcher who broke every stereotype he’d had.

What started out as one hot, sweaty night together quickly grows into something deeper. Jason welcomes Cam into his home and his life, but now he has to teach the younger man that it’s not a sign of weakness to let people help you.

Reviewer: KathyMac

Review: Curve Ball is the second book in the Homerun series, by Sloan Johnson. Wild Pitch is still my favorite between the two, but I did enjoy this one, also. Each book can probably be considered a standalone, but there are a few references in the story that related to the first book, but I don’t think it would hinder your reading.

Cam is Drew’s friend that we briefly met in Wild Pitch. He has just finished culinary school and has nowhere to go, so Drew invited him to stay with him for a while. These two are best friends and have been for years. As far as Cam knows, Drew is straight and has girls lined up every night. And, that is the picture Drew paints but he has been holding a pretty big secret from Cam for a long, long time.

Drew wants Cam to go with him to a cookout the team is having. Cam has had terrible experiences with male athletes so he is not looking forward to going. But, he doesn’t want to hurt Drew’s feelings so he makes a desert, because that is his specialty, to take with them.

Losing your first love has affected the way Jason lives his life. Almost a hermit other than when playing baseball, he has fought nightmares and guilt for the past 7 years. Spending time with the other players on the team during their off days helps Jason to keep from going stir crazy.

Jason is pretty new to the team and hides his sexuality from every one. As soon as he sees Cam at the cook out he is interested. He’s not put off by Cam’s flamboyance clothes or style. As a matter of fact he is pretty enamored with him. He spends most of the evening talking with Cam hoping they can get much closer.

Curve Ball is about Jason and Cam, primarily, but Drew has secrets that once exposed gives him quite a bit of page time. Cam has had a rough family life and he pretty much holds those experiences against everyone. Even when Jason is sincere and committed, Cam still has trouble believing him.

Jason had a first love that was killed in combat in the military. He carries a lot of guilt for not getting to say the things he wanted to him and now he won’t ever have the chance. He finds it very hard to give himself and his heart to anyone else because he still has nightmares about Adam, his first.

I understand Jason wanting to hold onto his first love and even being afraid of giving his heart to someone else. What seemed a little unbelievable to me was once he decides to share the story, they were young teenagers and I think they only kissed. They really weren’t even a couple and Adam goes to the military soon after. Jason has held onto his memory for seven years which seemed a little extreme.

Cam is a little wishy-washy in his feelings, as well. He doesn’t want charity from anyone nor does he want anyone to think he is helpless. He continuously refuses anyone’s help even when they are only trying to offer support and help.

I didn’t feel the passion and the connection with Cam and Jason like I did with Sean and Mason. I did, however, love the moments the author put in showing us bits and pieces of Sean and Mason and where they are with their family now. Mason was hysterical in this book and became one of Cam’s closest friends.

There wasn’t any angst to dwell on and the sex was spontaneous, but didn’t light up the sheets. I still enjoyed it and I am more curious than ever about Eric and hope he gets his own book soon. The next book will be about Drew and Bryce who is a friend of Jason’s. Bryce, for what we got to see of him, seems like he will be really interesting so I’m looking forward for that book.

The ending is not really a cliffhanger but it left some things unanswered which kind left me with a *whaaaat?* feeling. I’m sure we will find out in the first pages of the next book, I hope anyway.

I would recommend this story especially if you read the first book, and also, if you like low angst slow burn love stories with some baseball players in the mix.

Blurb: Two words stripped Austin Pritchard of the privileged life he’s used to. The moment he uttered the words, “I’m gay,” he realized there is no such thing as unconditional love. Now, he’s gone from traveling the world with his family to living on the streets trying to figure out how he’s going to stay in school.

A chance opportunity changes everything. Austin impresses the foreman and lands a job, but even more, he catches the eye of David Becker, who is determined to teach him that true love doesn’t come with strings.

The only thing David had as a child was love. His family struggled to keep food on the table and a roof over their heads. That has driven him to stay focused on his goals; become a tenured professor at a university and save enough money to build a home of his own.

It’s not until he sees an insecure college student working on his new house that he realizes that he hasn’t planned on someone to share his life with. He’s about to learn that everything he’s already accomplished is nothing compared to the task of making Austin see that he is worthy of love.

Reviewer: Tams

Review: Austin Pritchard has his whole life ahead of him. He is young, smart and focused on his college education. Until he tells his parents he is gay and his dad responds by dropping him off at the bus station with nothing but the clothes on his back and a few words of disdain. As if disowning his own flesh and blood and telling him not to come back until he learns the error of his ways and taking away his car weren’t enough, dear old dad stops paying for Austin’s tuition.

Broke, homeless and depressed; Austin winds up living in the park and desperately trying to find work to save money so he can return to school in the fall.

When a day job brings David into Austin’s life, he doesn’t dare hope that the smart, sexy, older college professor could ever fall for the likes of him. That is his first mistake. David Becker never thought that landing the perfect job and building his dream home would be followed up by meeting the love of his life. But Austin barrels into David’s otherwise perfectly manicured life, like a tornado and turns it upside down.

The two are instantly smitten but there are concerns. Austin doesn’t want anyone’s pity, least of all the man he’s falling for, so he doesn’t share the fact he is homeless. David’s friends are concerned about the fifteen year age difference between them, there is definitely a level of maturity that Austin has yet to achieve and it could drive a wedge between them.

I was engrossed in this story from the start, but the narration took some time to get used to. This is Rain’s first audio and there is room for improvement. I love a good May/December romance when the Author can draw me in and make their love story endearing and believable, and Johnson surely accomplished that.

Austin is only twenty years old and has had everything he holds dear jerked out from underneath him. He is in pain and confused and unsure about where he is going in life. That was evident in not only the way he was written, but the way he was voiced by the narrator.

David is mature, worldly and handsome. He also has the patience of a saint, and though he is instantly drawn to Austin he doesn’t immediately act on the attraction of that draw. In fact, it is months of long talks, heavy make out sessions and constant refusals to consummate the relationship before David finally makes love to Austin. Unfortunately, the tone Rain chose to tell David’s voice in was too deep and nasal, it was forced and I never did get used to it.

There was a ton of emotional highs and lows and a lot of angst, but here’s the thing, the angst didn’t bother me too much because it was expected for Austin to be confused and unsure of himself both as a person, and as half of a couple. David truly teaches Austin what it means to be loved, to be cherished and protected. He also helps Austin learn valuable tools on how to cope, communicate and deal with life and all the curve balls it throws at you.

My first point of note would be if you are listening to this book and you think, this narrator is going to kill me, hang on, it gets better as the story progresses. There are some tone and nuance issues, but the story itself should keep you enthralled in the book. This would have been five stars easy but the narration was an issue for me, sadly.

Still, I’d recommend this book.

It’s intense, emotional and angsty… but it’s also passionate romance and the story of a young man who may struggle finding his way in life, but he is determined to make his mark on the world. And the ending, oh my goodness, if you don’t shed a tear at the ending of this book, we can’t be friends.

Blurb: There’s never been any question in Sean Tucker’s mind that he’d do whatever it took to make it to the major leagues and be one of the best pitchers of his time. The day he acknowledged to himself that he was gay was also the day he vowed to stay in the closet in order to chase his dreams. The problem is, he never counted on Mason Atley.

Sean showed rookie short stop Mason Atley the ropes, both on the field and off. The two forged a friendship which continued as both of them moved through the ranks of the farm system and into the majors. Unfortunately, there’s always been one secret Mason never felt he could share with Sean. Until now.

For seven years, Sean lived with the fact that he loved a man who would never reciprocate. When Mason admits that he’s always known he’s bisexual but has never allowed himself to pursue a relationship with a man, will Sean be able to put aside his reservations about starting a relationship with the friend he’d always assumed was straight?

And more importantly, will they be able to find a way to stay together when their careers keep them apart more than they can be together?

Reviewer: KathyMac

Review: I don’t know how I have managed to not read any books from this author, but now that I know how incredible her writing is, I’ll be rectifying that, immediately.

Wild Pitch, by Sloan Johnson, is an incredible story of friendship, love, overcoming fears, and perseverance.

I was moved several times over the course of reading this book. Ms. Johnson has taken current affairs about gay players in sports and showed that homophobia is still a major concern. However, the times are changing. And, they are changing for the better. I’m sure this is not true everywhere, we know it’s not true, but I do believe it is better than it used to be, and Wild Pitch shows us that there are good people out there. Accepting people who could care less about what you do in the privacy of your own home.

Sean has always known he was gay, but it was something that he had already made peace with keeping this information to himself. Being a pitcher for the major leagues is his life’s dream, and the one person that he wanted was also the one person he couldn’t have. Or, so he thought. His straight best friend…straight, married, best friend.

When we meet Mason, he has a marriage that has crumbled, his stats on the field are not the best, and he wants his best friend more than anything. Never admitting to anyone that he is, at least, bi holds him back from telling Sean the truth. He’s had plenty opportunities over the years to confess his own secret, but he held back thinking he wanted the wife, kids, and the white picket fence.

Even though Mason and Sean are on opposite teams they have always been friends first and foremost. Mason gets a call one night from Sean’s teammate to come and pick up his inebriated ass. When he gets him back to the house, one thing leads to another, and secrets spill. Sean can’t believe what he is hearing, but deciding to not pass up this opportunity, he gives in to Mason’s desires and wow, it was amazing.

I loved this story for many reasons. The author’s writing is something that I connected to right away. She allowed the characters to work through their problems, for the most part, together. Oh, there was a couple of times a tantrum ensued sending them off to separate corners, but they didn’t stay away too long.

Their relationship was not what I would consider insta-love, although, they did love each other very much. They started out as friends so their bond was very strong. Once they moved into a relationship status Sean was afraid to push too fast, too soon, in case Mason changed his mind.

With the help of Sean’s sister, and Mason’s parents, they gave unlimited support and advice only wanting the best for both of them. Regardless to the obstacles they faced, whether it is an ex-wife or injuries, they stood by each other with a formidable wall.

This is a really touching and moving story that will have you biting your nails one minute, and the next. You will be smiling from ear to ear. The story did not revolve only around the MC’s. Ms. Johnson has included several secondary characters that were vital in bringing this story to its full potential. Each one had a purpose adding so much value to this story. Sean’s sister, who lives with

Sean most of the time, is struggling through her own problems and Sean and Mason, both, were there for her in any capacity. It was really beautiful how both of them watched out for her and tried to protect her. There are a couple of guys on the team that were instrumental, as well, and I hope they eventually get their own story.

This story is not cliché or predictable. One of the reasons that I stayed glued to the pages was because I wasn’t sure how everything would turn out. To say that the author threw in a couple of surprises and bonuses would be an understatement. Without spoiling it for anyone, I will just say that the ending was soooooo good. I wasn’t sure whether to smile or cry and honestly, I think I did a little of both.

I would definitely recommend this to anyone who loves friends to lovers, sex scenes that are super-hot and passionate, and happy ever after’s. You definitely get all of that and a lot more, and for me, I have just found another author with a catalogue I can’t wait to delve into.

Tony DeLuca has to get to New York, nor’easter be damned. His older sister is getting married and it won’t matter to her if the entire east coast is shut down if it means she’s short a groomsman. She’s the only reason he’s willing to make the trip home to face a father who’s never forgiven him for wasting a perfectly good degree to become a firefighter. And that’s only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to everything about Tony that his father will never accept. 

Dominic Tricoli’s living his dream. He’s spent the past few years working to mesh his business degree and love of the outdoors into a thriving company, providing team building retreats for some of the country’s largest corporations. Unfortunately, there’s a price to pay for happiness, and having someone to come home to at night is the sacrifice Dominic made. 

When Dominic overhears Tony’s plight, he’s drawn to help the man get to New York City. Little does Dominic know that one kind gesture will awaken a side of him he’s ignored for far too long. Against his better judgment, he gives in to his desires and Tony’s advances. Just for the night. 

When destiny steps in, giving him another chance with the charismatic man who saved his hide, Tony’s willing to do whatever it takes to earn Dominic’s forgiveness and understanding. There may not be forever, but Tony’s determined to enjoy every single minute he’s given with Dominic. 

You can’t fight fate. Whatever’s meant to happen, eventually will.

Blurb: Two words stripped Austin Pritchard of the privileged life he’s used to. The moment he uttered the words, “I’m gay,” he realized there is no such thing as unconditional love. Now, he’s gone from traveling the world with his family to living on the streets trying to figure out how he’s going to stay in school.

A chance opportunity changes everything. Austin impresses the foreman and lands a job, but even more, he catches the eye of David Becker, who is determined to teach him that true love doesn’t come with strings.

The only thing David had, as a child was love. His family struggled to keep food on the table and a roof over their heads. That has driven him to stay focused on his goals; become a tenured professor at a university and save enough money to build a home of his own. It’s not until he sees an insecure college student working on his new house that he realizes that he hasn’t planned on someone to share his life with.

He’s about to learn that everything he’s already accomplished is nothing compared to the task of making Austin see that he is worthy of love.

Review: From the start, my heart just ached for young Austin. Twenty years old, fresh out of the closet and forced to re-evaluate everything he was taught in his short lifetime, how could I not feel for him? David, coming from his own dire straits in his past must have sensed a kindred spirit of sorts, even though he was unaware of Austin’s exact situation. I immediately understood his desire protect and care for Austin.

I enjoyed the slow build of first their friendship and then their relationship. It was refreshing to see David take his time to earn Austin’s trust, to see them grow together as they matured in what was actually the first serious relationship for each of them. I really liked the way their first kisses were written – as moments of wonder, from Austin’s point of view as a true innocent opening his eyes to love with another man for the first time.

There was definite angst and moments of frustration (and a lot of ups and downs) with both characters – somebody needed to tell these guys to COMMUNICATE!!!! Ultimately, all’s well that ends well, and it was great to see an epilogue where both Austin and David have matured and grown together in a way that is real and believable.

This is not a sexy, smutty read; it is a poignant and sweet love story with flawed and real characters who ultimately find their happiness together. If you don’t mind a few bumps along that road, then Sloan Johnson’s latest book (and first foray into MM genre) just might be the book for you.
