The resulting insecurity means he won't look in a mirror unless absolutely essential.Then one night at Zenith, the local gay club, he locks eyes with Brad. He likes what he sees, but so does Zack. As Zack approaches Brad, Ian's heart sinks. However, there is a small chance Brad will tell Zack to take a hike.Is Ian's life about to change for the better? Will he finally get a chance at love? Or will his so-called best friend Zack ruin everything? Could Zack really be that cruel?EXCERPT:Note: may contain sexually explicit scenes of a homoerotic nature.
This is a sweet but rather sad short story about Ian, who is rather plain and has suffered physically and mentally through the years because of it. But he has a good heart and longs for someone to love him for who he is, not how he looks, even his good friend Zack just uses him. It's a lovely story, sad but with an HEA he so badly deserves.
