Blog Tour, Excerpt & Giveaway:
Claim Me, Love Me
By Jaiyde Thomas
The only way to fall in love is to take the first step.
For Caleb, that first step leads to fear, violence, and the death of the only boy he’s ever loved. He won’t—can’t—admit who he is to himself. How could he ever share his deepest secrets with someone else?
Josaiah has known he was gay since he was seven. He’s experienced in more ways than one—with sex, with other men, and as a Dominant. But love is something he can’t accept or give, and he’s walled himself off from any kind of affection.
Can Caleb confront his ghosts and learn to love himself and his new Dom? Will Josaiah remember how to love, and be loved in turn? As Caleb and Josaiah take the first few steps toward each other, their pasts threaten to overwhelm their future.
Special Tour Snippet:
“I’ve found someone who makes life easier, bearable, worth living. He sees something within me that I obviously hadn’t noticed myself. He’s waiting for me right outside of those gates. Vinnie, I love him, and see a future with him, but that will never change how you made me feel, how much we related to each other, how you’d smile at me and make my heart skip a beat. Oh,” I sighed as I placed my right hand over my heart, feeling the ache grow. “My love for you is still present, but my new life with Josaiah has shown me that I can still love you and have room in my heart to love someone else too. We were young, and didn’t know what love truly was, but this “man has provided me with the stability that I’ve craved for so long. He’s allowed me to come out and be free.”
With shaky legs, I rose from the ground, wiping away the tears that were starting to dry. Running my fingers over the raised lettering, I stared at his name.
