#TeaserTuesday: Everything About You: A Second Chance Gay Romance by Jeanne St. James

So excited to be able to share an excerpt from Everything About You by Jeanne St. James today... this delicious book releases on May 7th and we'll have our review for you, but until then... please enjoy this teaser:

From the blurb:

It was your smile.
Your laugh.
The color of your eyes.
The way you looked at me when no one else was looking.
The way you held me.
The way you kissed me.
It was everything about you I loved.

The flattening of that smile.
The silence of your laughter.
The loss of your lips.
The way you left.
The way you destroyed it all.
The way you destroyed me.
Destroyed us.
It was everything about you I hated.

Everything about you.
I wanted.
Hoped for.
And that day you not only broke my heart.
You f*cking crushed it.

Note: Everything About you is a standalone gay (M/M) second chance romance. Please refer to the content note at the beginning of the book before buying or reading. You can access that page by using Amazon’s “Look Inside” feature or downloading the free sample. This info can also be found on my website. As always, this book doesn’t have a cliffhanger and an HEA is guaranteed.


The newest resident must’ve found his key since the metal door to one of the mailboxes now hung wide open while he rifled through a fistful of mail.

Shaking his head, he continued to talk to himself. The only time he glanced up was when the Callahans walked past him with Mr. Pibbles yapping in warning. Mr. Pibbles didn’t like strangers.

Hell, Mr. Pibbles didn’t like anyone except for the Callahans. And even that was questionable.

As soon as the couple and their orange yap rat stepped out onto the sidewalk, the man shut the mailbox and turned…

And the revolving Earth came to a complete and abrupt stop, as if someone had jerked up the emergency brake.

My heart seized. My lungs emptied. My soul decided to flee the lobby without me.

But my mind…  My mind began to spin like a Tilt-A-Whirl with a drunk carny at the controls.

“Oh shit.” When my heart kick-started, I yanked my baseball cap lower to hide my face and quickly tugged my damp T-shirt over my head and torso as I hurried into the nearby stairwell.

I made sure the steel door didn’t slam behind me and for a second pressed my back to the wall next to it.

I wasn’t sure what the hell to do. I certainly wasn’t ready to face him.

This couldn’t be reality. He couldn’t live in the same building as I did.

It couldn’t be him. No fucking way!

He left Pittsburgh twelve years ago after he graduated, why the hell was he back now?

My only guess was that it wasn’t Tate. That it was someone who looked like him. A doppelgänger.

I was freaking out for nothing.

I was being a foolish idiot.

But to be sure, I slid my back from the wall to the door, flipped my baseball cap backwards, then turned, bent my knees and popped my head up enough to peek out of the little fireproof window.

I watched as he headed over to the elevator and jabbed the button ten times in quick succession. While he waited impatiently for the doors to open, he shuffled from one foot to the other.

Twelve years.

It had been twelve fucking years since I last saw him.

But it was like yesterday.

We both looked different but also the same.

Definitely older. Debatably wiser.

But he looked worn out. Beat down.

As if the easy life he was supposed to be living turned out to be not so easy.

I watched him until he stepped into the open elevator car and the doors shut behind him, whisking him away.

I continued to stare at the empty spot where he previously stood because I had a hard time pulling myself away.

I could only chalk it up to shock.
