Taylor V. Donovan is a compulsive reader and author of gay romance and suspense. She is optimistically cynical about humanity and a lover of history, museums, and all things 80s. She shamelessly indulges in mind-numbing reality television, is crazy about fashion, and passionate about civil rights and equality for all.

“I’m fucking demanding, and you should know that if you ever feel like experimenting and ask me for a threesome, I’m most likely to cut off your dick and feed it to my neighbor’s Chihuahua.”

“No?” Mac taunted, “’Cause not even three weeks have passed since I talked you into forgettin' your precious rules. I seriously doubt much has changed in terms of feelings. From where I’m standin' it looks like you’re either a coward, or a selfish prick playin' push and pull with me, and right now I’m wonderin’ why the hell I should bother with you.”
