People pleaser Ben Forman has been in the closet so long he has almost convinced himself he is straight, but his denial train gets derailed when hotshot lawyer Micah Trains walks into his life. Micah is brilliant, funny, driven…and he assumes Ben is gay and starts dating him. Finding himself truly happy for the first time, Ben doesn’t have the willpower to resist Micah’s affection.
When his relationship with Micah heats up, Ben realizes he has a problem: His parents won’t tolerate a gay son, and self-confident Micah isn’t the type to hide. If Ben wants to maintain his hold on his happiness, he’ll have to decide what’s important and own up to the truth of who he is. The trouble is figuring out just what that truth is.

Ben Forman has a problem, he’s a people pleaser. He’s also so far back in the closet he’s almost convinced his self he’s straight. He knows there’s no way his parents will accept a gay son so he hides it from them and everyone else he knows.
Lawyer Michael Trains is funny, loyal, brilliant and confident in his sexuality. When he meets Ben he sees right through the facade he’s hiding behind and decides he wants to date him. Ben has no willpower to resist Michael and Michael just won’t take no for an answer. Suddenly Ben is truly happy for the first time in his life. Now he has to decide what is more important to him, his happiness or being the son and person he’s been pretending to be all this time.
These M/M stories are written with love and compassion straight from the heart. Another hit from my favorite author representing the LGBT community. I love that these stories have a plot and HEA. There’s some really hot sex that is well written and not trashy. Cardeno writes with such finesse and I always jump at the chance to review this author.
Independent reviewer for Paranormal Romance & Authors That Rock. 5 fangs
Cardeno C. – CC to friends – is a hopeless romantic who wants to add a lot of happiness and a few “awwws” into a reader’s day. Writing is a nice break from real life as a corporate type and volunteer work with gay rights organizations. Cardeno’s stories range from sweet to intense, contemporary to paranormal, long to short, but they always include strong relationships and walks into the happily-ever- after sunset.
Cardeno’s Home, Family, and Mates series have received awards from Love Romances and More Golden Roses, Rainbow Awards, the Goodreads M/M Romance Group, and various reviewers. But even more special to CC are heartfelt reactions from readers, like, “You bring joy and love and make it part of the every day.”
