Louder than Words
One text is all it takes to send Nick on the longest roller coaster ride of his life.
Nick Torres is known for two things: his poor taste in women and how he’d do anything for his friends. So when his date is interrupted by a frantic text from his best friend Joel, he doesn’t think twice about rushing to his side. Nick insists it’s not personal, but why when given a choice, would he rather hang with Joel over anyone else?
Out of all the challenges Joel’s faced, falling for his best friend shouldn’t be one of them.
Joel’s had a mad crush on Nick ever since the second grade, and it’s becoming even harder to ignore now that they’re live-in roommates. Crippled with severe anxiety, the only interactions Joel’s had over the last eleven months include a LGBT forum he’s a part of as well as the bit of time he gets to spend with Nick. So when Nick suggests inviting one of his forum friends over on a date, Joel figures it’s just the distraction he needs from the man he can never have.
Nick would do anything to get the old Joel back, but he never expected that in order to do so he’d have to give up his heart.
Can he get a handle on his emotions and convince Joel he’s more than just a friend, or will a knee-jerk reaction be enough to end their friendship for good?
