Jay Bell led a quiet life in Kansas until the day he met a handsome foreign exchange student named Andreas who swept him off his feet and carried him all the way to Germany. Much to their delight, marriage awaited them when they got there. While living so distant from friends and family, Jay began writing in an effort to reconcile the mixture of devotion and alienation he felt. This resulted in a Lambda Literary Award and a film option for his best-selling novel Something Like Summer. Jay and Andreas have since relocated to Chicago where their adventures continue, as do those of the characters in their emotionally driven Something Like… series. Jay pens the stories and Andreas provides the cover art, making them books about love, forged by love.

Thisis an awesome book I can't help but to feel related to, a cherishable work of art that takes you to a world where, as the plot unfolds, can touch your heart in more than two ways, with Connor and David I've found a story full of surprises, the bravery they show is great; I've laughed out loud, cried, and sat on the edge of my seat, Jay Bell is an amazing author, and very kind as well, I recommend all his books,
