 BLURB:

Spending the summer together on Fire Island brought Collin and Tanner closer than ever, but back in their conservative college town, challenges confront them at every turn.
As they search for their new normal in their old environment, Collin's brother Sean surprises them with help when they need it most. But when word about their relationship gets out, trouble erupts with friends and family. When Collin's relationship with Tanner becomes an issue in his brother's custody battle, and Tanner struggles with his feelings for a heartbroken Wendy, Collin wonders if everyone he cares about would be better off without him in the picture. In order to save them both, Tanner must make it clear to Collin that their love for each other is all that matters.

Moment of Impact
Beyond Collin Fitzpatrick’s dorm room, the students of his conservative college think he’s straight, as does his Catholic family who'd disown him if they learned the truth. Inside, he’s safe with his sexy roommate Tanner D’Amico. Tanner wants to show the world how much he loves Collin, but Collin’s not sure he’s ready for the impact stepping outside will make.




Moment of Truth

Collin expected to spend another summer fixing cars and working at the college pizzeria. Instead, he's living in a beach house on Fire Island, and for the first time, he and Tanner can publicly be known as boyfriends. Being “out” takes some getting used to, and doubt and jealousy threaten their happiness. Collin and Tanner must confront the truth or risk losing it all.



NOW HERE IS AN EXCERPT FOR BOOK 3: MOMENT OF CLARITY:

I HADN’T particularly been looking forward to the dinky twin beds in the dorms, but I’d at least expected them to be indoors.

“What the fuck?” Tanner stared out one side of the cab while I gaped out of the other. Mattresses and dressers covered the quad as far as I could see. Then I saw the fire truck.

We paid the driver, unloaded our bags from his trunk, and made our way toward the crowd by the main entrance of Downing Hall.

Eric was sitting under a tree with a pile of suitcases alongside him. I knew Tanner had talked to him after Eric saw us holding hands on Fire Island. Eric had said he was cool about us being a couple—he’d agreed to keep it quiet—but my instinct was to avoid him. No such luck.

He stood and yelled over to us. “Can you believe this shit?”

I set my bags next to Eric’s. “Dude, what’s going on?”

Eric rolled his eyes. “Some dipshit on the second floor put a Pop-Tart in the illegal toaster oven in his room, then went to take a shower. It started smoking and set off all the water systems on the second and third floors.”

Fuck. We’re third floor. “How bad is the damage?”

“All I’m hearing is rumors, but it sounds like it’ll be a few weeks before we can really move in.”

“Shit.” I scrubbed my hand through my hair.

Tanner came over and dropped his duffel alongside mine. “I just talked to the RA. He said we’re going to be temporarily housed in the gym, on cots.”

Eric grumbled. “Perfect. A $45K-a-year shelter.”

“At least there are showers. Did they say how long?”

Tanner took a seat on the grass and started plucking out random leaves and shredding them. “Nope. Could be a week, could be two or more. There’s a long line of parents busting a gut over there yelling at people.”

I didn’t want to cause problems. I just wanted to be with Tanner. We’d spent our last week of summer break at his mom’s, and it had been great—sleeping late, going out to shows, eating takeout on the roof—but it had once again been a chaste week. I still wasn’t comfortable with us doing anything with his mom right down the hall. She’d been so kind to us, I didn’t want to do anything to offend her. But I was horny as fuck and looking forward to getting Tanner all to myself behind the closed door of our dorm room, not sleeping on a cot next to him in a room with fifty other displaced students.

“We’re supposed to check in over there.” Tanner pointed to two makeshift tables that were propped by the far side of our building. “They’re giving out the passes for the gym and some sort of credit from food services for our inconvenience.”

“Guess we better go check that out.”

“I’m gonna wait for Tim to get here,” Eric said. “He was stuck in traffic, and his phone died, so he doesn’t even know. You think you two could save us cots?”

I looked Eric in the eye, searching for any sign of disapproval or fear, but I saw neither. It either didn’t matter to him, or he was going to pretend it hadn’t happened. Either way, maybe this wouldn’t be as bad as I thought.

“Sure. We’ll try to get a good spot.”

“Thanks. See you there in a bit.”

I joined Tanner in line at the tables. He shifted his duffel from arm to arm, and I stared at the muscles of his back as they flexed and rippled under the thin fabric of his T-shirt. Goddamn he’s gorgeous. I already missed seeing him walking around barefoot and shirtless in his board shorts. Thinking about that made me want to get him anywhere we could take off our clothes and spend some quality alone time getting reacquainted. As we were handed our gym pass and a set of industrial blankets, I realized naked time was going to be a long way off.

Where to find the author:



I HAVE SOME EXCITING NEWS FOR YOU THAT KAREN WANTED TO SHARE:

"I just signed two new contracts with Dreamspinner Press. These new titles will be continuations of the Moments In Time series, but will star secondary characters from the series rather than Collin and Tanner. MOMENT OF SILENCE will feature Quinn (Collin's oldest brother) and Jason (Collin's Fire Island co-worker who developed a crush on him) and MOMENT OF FATE will be Bryan's story (Bryan was the musician housemate from Moment Of Truth). I'm very excited about both projects. I also have a m/f New Adult book that will be released from Bloomsbury in late 2015. Lots of books on the horizon!”
