If you follow me or this site pretty regularly, there are two things you will know with a great deal of certainty:
1. I adore author Roan Parrish. Why? Girlfriend can write. Whether it’s sexy, nuanced romance, an essay about gender, identity, and pandering, or a paranormal Halloween short, one thing’s for sure: it is all gorgeous and lush and poetic in a way that will just sort of…linger, burrowing inside you and letting you think of nothing else.
2. I’ve been dying to get my hands on some information – any information – about the sequel to In the Middle of Somewhere. Who would the book be about? What would the title be? WOULD WE SEE MORE REX OR DANIEL?!
Well, finally, the loooooong wait is now over and I can tell you all about that next book. So now the BIG reveal!
Releasing from Dreamspinner Press, February 29, 2016
Blurb: The only thing in Colin Mulligan’s life that makes sense is taking cars apart and putting them back together. In the auto shop where he works with his father and brothers, he tries to get through the day without having a panic attack or flying into a rage. Drinking helps. So do running and lifting weights until he can hardly stand. But none of it can change the fact that he’s gay, a secret he has kept from everyone.
Rafael Guerrera has found ways to live with the past he’s ashamed of. He’s dedicated his life to social justice work and to helping youth who, like him, had very little growing up. He has no time for love. Hell, he barely has time for himself. Somehow, everything about miserable, self-destructive Colin cries out to him. But down that path lie the troubles Rafe has worked so hard to leave behind. And as their relationship intensifies, Rafe and Colin are forced to dredge up secrets that both men would prefer stay buried.

Roan Parrish is currently wandering between Philadelphia and New Orleans. When not writing, she can usually be found cutting her friends’ hair, meandering through whatever city she’s in while listening to torch songs and melodic death metal, or cooking overly elaborate meals. She loves bonfires, winter beaches, minor chord harmonies, and self-tattooing. One time she may or may not have baked a six-layer chocolate cake and then thrown it out the window in a fit of pique.
