Howdy y’all. A great big thanks to Lisa and those at The Novel Approach for letting me drop in today.
I wanted to say a little something about my newest release, My Hero: The Olympian. It is the sequel to My Hero. Johnny and Rich are back at it, this time as an established couple, something a bit different. It’s been a while since I’ve seen a book that tackles a pair that are already together.
This one picks up right where the first one left off. Although this is a standalone novel, it does help to have read the first one. Having that history behind these two, and what they went through to be together would make it a better read I do believe.
Of course, being young college men, they love food and sex and will often combine the two. For those of you who have read My Hero, you’ll understand. Yes, they are at it again.
As in the first book, the secondary characters are there and a few new ones. I do love my back up folks in a book. To me they just add depth and are always good for a laugh and good times. Not a lot of angst here, but enough to keep things interesting.
As you can tell by the excerpt, there is always a little mischief with these two. I hope you’ll take the time to get to know these two. They are a lot of fun to be around.
Thanks again for letting me bend your ear,

BLURB: After a romantic evening, Rich and Johnny face the light of day as a couple. Johnny’s coming out forces them to face some serious repercussions as the world of collegian jocks adjust to their first openly gay football player.
Rich is still working towards the World Diving Championships with his hopes and dreams set on the 2012 London Olympic Games, while as a couple they deal with concerns closer to home.
With the support of friends and family, the young couple grow closer together, but with prejudices and adversity at every turn will Johnny and Rich be able to tackle the world together?
No matter what, Rich will always be Johnny’s hero.
Excerpt: “No, I’m not going to and there is nothing you can say that will make me either.” Johnny crossed his arms, a defiant look on his face, his eyes narrowed slits.
“Oh come on, John, I wear them.” Rich held up the skimpy black racing briefs. “For me?”
Johnny looked away. “No. I said no and I mean no.”
Rich leaned in close to Johnny so only he could hear. “If you wear this, I can guarantee you some of the best sex in your life. If you think I get turned on by jock straps…”
Johnny glared down at Rich. “You don’t play fair.”
“Wasn’t it you who recently said that all is fair in love and war?” Rich smirked as he dangled the tiny briefs in front of Johnny.
“It better be the best ever.” Johnny let his arms drop. “Okay. But you promised.”
Again, Rich leaned in close. “Maybe even join the mile high club.”
Johnny’s eyebrows shot up and a grin blossomed on his face. “Deal.”
“Are we done here?” Dan called to the two college men. He was standing at the counter, credit card in hand.
“One more thing, Dad.” Rich hurried over to him. “This.”
Dan raised his eyebrows slightly. “Oookay then.”
Rich snickered when he saw Johnny blushing.
“I think this will be all,” Dan said to the clerk.
“I’m going to give you a discount,” the young woman said as she rang it up. “It isn’t every day that we can say an Olympian wore some of our gear.”
“I’m not an Olympian yet,” Rich commented.
“Rich Miller, I’ve known you my entire life, and if anyone is going to be an Olympian, it’s you.” Michelle Stubbon smiled at Rich as she started putting the pile of swimsuits, track suits, shorts, and other things that he and Johnny needed for London in a bag.
“Thanks, Michelle. I appreciate the confidence everyone has in me.”
“Just remember us lowly folk when you come home with Olympic gold,” she laughed as she handed Dan the receipt.
