This blog is my way of promoting and paying a small tribute to the amazing authors and their incredible works I enjoy. I have had the pleasure of pre-reading/pre-editing for some of them and simply enjoyed reading others. Any way you look at it, they have brought some light to my life and I'd like to pass that on to others, so sit back and find yourself a book to get lost in. Enjoy ...
A mutual interest in art draws two shy university students
together. Ben admires Vinnie’s painting of the university building, so Vinnie
invites him to an exhibition of his artwork. From a wealthy family, Ben
purchases some of Vinnie’s art and arranges for the artist to personally hang
the paintings in his apartment.
Starry, starry night...
Ben commissions Vinnie to paint his portrait, in order to
spend more time with the artist. On the night of the sitting, Vinnie
fingerpaints the starry night on Ben’s chest... and they kiss. They begin a
relationship beneath the night sky, God’s own canvas.
But every relationship has its ups and downs and so it is
with theirs. When Ben thinks Vinnie spends too much time with a fellow artist,
his jealousy drives a wedge between them and forces Vinnie into the very thing
Hold tight to your dreams...
Ben and Vinnie will have to walk through fire before they can find one another again. But if they believe, and if they keep their faith in the night sky and each other, just maybe they can make their dreams of love come true.

and I'll paint you.”

over the other end, scarcely breathing now. Vinnie knelt on the floor beside me
with an open pot of paint in his hand.
he dipped his index finger into the dark blue paint as if it were cream he
would lick off. His finger connected with my skin and he made short strokes
across my chest, the coldness of the paint making me shiver.
by the closeness of his beautiful face, the view of the night sky through the
window, and the picture forming upon my chest, I watched as dab after dab and
stroke after stroke he built up a mix of shades, until a dark night sky with
the moon and stars were there to be seen—a masterpiece, drying on the warmth of
my blazing skin, a transient thing of beauty. His fingers skimmed my skin
causing gooseflesh to ripple in waves down my arms and thighs. My nipples
pebbled in response to his touch.
when he was done, his lips met mine in a languid kiss; how our first kiss
should have been—sweet, innocent, and full of promise. He pulled away, smiling
down at me.
