Titus has lived and breathed religion his entire life, tucked away from the rest of the world in a compound in northern Wyoming. He’s destined to be the next leader of the church, deemed so by the Prophet.
God spoke and with His word He created. But God made a mistake. Titus isn’t worthy. He was born sick and it’s solidified when he rescues the most beautiful man he’s ever seen.
Torn between fidelity to his faith or his soul, Titus must reconcile the two parts of himself before he’s discovered hiding among the chosen.
Angel Rodriguez was running from heartbreak when he was left for dead in the middle of the vast Wyoming landscape. And if by a miracle, he’s somehow rescued by a man who is trying desperately to flee from some pain of his own.
Titus was born and raised in a religious cult that held themselves separate from the rest of the world. He always felt just a bit out of place and he never really knew why. Until he found his Angel.
“Are you okay?” Angel put his hand on Titus’ shoulder. Titus’ eyes snapped open, and he made himself stop before he threw Angel’s hand off. He’d moved from where he leaned on the counter and now stood much too close to Titus.
Angel has never met anyone who deserves to be happy more than Titus. With his pure heart, honesty and unassuming beauty, he's finding it virtually impossible not to fall head over heels in love with him.
He knows that he can show Titus a brand-new world where they are free to love as they choose. But it will mean leaving behind everything that he’s ever known and forsaking his duty as the next Prophet.
“Do you really believe I don’t want you? Or that I’m not attracted to you?” Titus said in a whisper.
With Forsaken, J. R. Gray delivers an unexpected tale of love with a delicate balance of both surprising candor and sincerity.
Against a backdrop of colorless conformity, his characters light up the page with the kind of hope and resilience that will have you believing that love does indeed overcome all hate and fear.
And that’s a beautiful thing…
Exclusive Excerpt ~
Angel couldn’t get enough of the taste of Titus. He licked at his tongue, asking for more. Thoughts of being Titus’ first had him hard and hot all over. Titus was too good at this not to have kissed others, but somewhere in the back of Angel’s mind he knew he was Titus’ first.
About The Author ~
When not staying up all night writing, J.R. Gray can be found at the gym where it's half assumed he is a permanent resident to fulfill his self-inflicted masochism. A dominant and a pilot, Gray finds it hard to be in the passenger seat of any car. He frequently interrupts real life, including normal sleep patterns and conversations, to jot down notes or plot bunnies. Commas are the bane of his existence even though it's been fully acknowledged they are necessary, they continue to baffle and bewilder. If Gray wasn't writing…well, that's not possible. The buildup of untold stories would haunt Gray into an early grave, insanity or both. The idea of haunting has always appealed to him. J.R. Gray is genderqueer and prefers he/him pronouns.
