2nd Edition

When it comes to relationships, college roommates Greg and Keith are polar opposites. A recovering addict, Greg avoids sex because it’s too closely tied in his mind with the alcohol and drugs he gave up. In contrast, Keith protects his heart by limiting sex to one-night stands and weekend flings.

As the two get to know each other better, they feel drawn together, and slowly they take tentative steps toward something real. Their attraction soon flares hot, but Greg’s fears overwhelm him, sending him running. It’s up to Keith to help Greg learn to trust in himself—and in the way they feel about each other.

First Edition published as Accidental Love by Amber Quill Press, LLC/Amber Allure, 2012.



This was a uber slow burn for this amount of pages. You would think it would be a full length novel with the pacing of the story. Both characters have their backstory and it’s pretty good for the length. I was a little conflicted about “why now?” What was so special about now, that they decided to act on their feelings for one another. Initially I got passed that. Greg has all these reservations about Keith. He notices things like him partying only on the weekends. I didn’t see an issue with it. The man is in college and focused during the week, what’s wrong with blowing off some steam during the weekend? I know where Greg is coming from since he used to do all this and it’s why he transferred to another school. He’s walking the straight and narrow plank.

I thought Keith’s plan of seduction was hilarious. He had a plan on what to do with Greg, and how to get him. I do think it was a little mean to try to keep enticing Greg. LOL. He made all the obvious retorts, but by the end he gave in. Keith had shown a different side to him, and a vulnerability and I think it’s what sold Greg to him. It was sweet short new adult story. Both guys have time to grow and figure out if this is what they want. I enjoyed it.

About Shae Connor

About me: I live in Atlanta, where I’m a lackadaisical government worker for a living and write sweet-hot romance under the cover of night. I’ve been making up stories for as long as I can remember, but it took me a long time to figure out that maybe I should start writing them down. I’ve conned several companies into publishing my work, and I add a new notch on my bedpost each time another story is unleashed onto an unsuspecting universe.

I started out writing fanfic well over a decade ago, and in 2010, I moved into writing original fiction—gay contemporary erotic romance, to be exact. I’ve since branched out a little (pirates, spaceships, and ninjas, oh my!), but contemporary romance is still my favorite thing to write and to read. When I manage to tear myself away from my laptop, my main hobby is cooking, and I’m a big baseball fan.

I’m a Rainbow Award winner (with my three co-authors) for the anthology Playing Ball, and I’m a member of Romance Writers of America and the Rainbow Romance Writers chapter. I’m currently published by Dreamspinner Press, Wilde City Press, MLR Press, and Amber Allure.

I’m part Jersey, part Irish, and all Southern, which explains why I never shut up. Exhibit A: just follow me on Twitter @shaeconnor. I’m also on Facebook, rarely on Goodreads, and nonexistent on other social media. Generally, the best way to reach me is to email me at
