What starts as a chance meeting changes two men’s lives for the better in F.E. Feeley Jr.’s latest novel, Into the Gray. Beautifully written, parallels between both characters’ state of mind and the wintry weather are woven throughout. The imagery is subtle, and Mr. Feeley artfully crafts the overall feeling of making it through the storm (both literally and in the journey of life) into the story.

While age and circumstances place them at very different points in their lives, both of the main cha

A Joyfully Jay review.

5 stars

You guys. I. Love. This. Book! I’m a sucker for a snowed in story and Into the Gray delivers. I mean…really delivers! The author paints a vivid picture of two men who are lost in the world and are lucky enough to cross paths at exactly the right time. The book has an almost film noir feel to it. It’s moody and atmospheric, and oh so hot. The image of the smoky bar is perfectly detailed, as is Aaron’s apartment, and even the office building. The sex, while not over t

Into the Gray
By F.E. Feeley Jr
Published by the author, 2019
Four stars

This tender, hopeful short novel is something of a departure for F.E. Feeley Jr. It follows the lines of a classic gay romance, exploring characters and offering a loving study of a new relationship born of misfortune and unhappiness. Feeley writes from his heart, from his understanding of the world as it is. That matters.

Aaron Roberts and David Collins are both lost, adrift in lives that no longer fully make sense. Aaron, a v

David's in his 40s & Aaron's in his 20s & both are going through stuff when they meet. Sexy ebook about 2 guys with things that connect them. Doesn't take a lotta time to read while getting to know both guys.
3.5 Stars!

The writing in this novella is on point: lush and atmospheric in this snowbound Detroit set romance between recent Harvard grad working as a janitor and an older lawyer who is divorcing his wife and coming out.

This book is an ache and very character driven. I wish there was more joy between Aaron and David but the moments they together and how Aaron brings him into his circle of friends. David does begin to lighten as the book progresses.

We know a lot more about Aaron in some ways and

“I can recall the day that I felt like I lost everything in the world... Now I can barely breathe... This is who I am now, picking up the pieces slowly... I didn't know I could feel like this. This is where it left me, into the black, into the gray.” ~ Thousand Below (Into the Gray)

After years of lying to himself about being gay, David of ‘Into the Gray’ by F.E. Feely, Jr., simply cannot ignore it any longer. Using the excuse of discovering that his wife is cheating on him, he has his lawyer ser

Take a walk with me to a place where second chances happen, hope springs eternal and true love exists. If you do, you will find yourself in a mystical place F.E. Feeley calls “The Gray”
In this story you follow two men, each trying to move beyond his past into a life where he can once again feel whole and full of personal purpose.

Aaron has graduated college and instead of moving into a future full of promise he is rudderless, mopping floors and emptying trashcans after hours in the kind of offi

I began following this author when I read his first book Haunting of Timber Manor almost six yrs ago. The Wraiths Series continued with Objects in the Rear View Mirror The promise he showed in that first writing, told me to keep up with him……and I was not wrong!!! This talented young man writes horror like King, writes poetry that slays you and now has

*I received an e-arc copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review*
This book was funny, deep and extremely sexy. We have Aaron, a janitor who is completely letting his ivy league grad qualifications gather dust... and then we have David, a man grappling with a huge life decision: ending his marriage and dealing with the fact that he is gay. When the two meet, there is an instant attraction, but it goes so much deeper and so quick. It is done in a very organic way, too. There is just

I absolutely loved this story.
It had none of the usual saccharin sweet hearts and flowers romance which sometimes that’s all some books are about with a little storyline thrown in.
Just two people who meet and decide to do something about it.
Don’t get me wrong it is a romance wrote in a beautiful way.

Into the Gray by F.E. Feeley Jr. This is David and Aaron’s story.

Entertaining, emotional, and hot read. But this story is so much more. David and Aaron each have some really tough issues that they are trying to work through. Their characters are wonderful and loved that I could feel their emotions.

FYI, contains mature content. This is a MM romance. Kindle Unlimited Subscription

It felt like home.
David and Aaron's story flowed in a way that just ... felt comfortable, felt right.
The flow of the storyline was consistent and easy to follow.
The cast was colorful. Each was uniquely different bringing their own something special to the story. I love DeDe.
As a reader, I was easily able to get lost in their journey.

David was going through a divorce while at the same time exploring and accepting multiple truths about himself. I really enjoyed how honest he was when he looked
3.5 stars- An erotic romance with substance

Into the Gray is quite different from this author’s other works in that it’s more sensual and romance focused. One of my favorite things about this author’s style is his descriptions that bring the scene and emotion to life. That was certainly present in Into the Gray, and though it didn’t wow me quite as much as his other books, I got a clear sense of the characters and felt connected to them. That said, this is not an erotic novella lacking a story or
I’ve been a big fan of this author’s stories since The Haunting of Timber Manor and if you haven’t read Objects in the Rearview Mirror, please do yourself a favor and go get it now. So, when I saw that he was writing an erotic romance I was anxious to get my paws on it and get his take. It was honestly what I wanted and expected considering how he writes and how much his style appeals to me. In short, I’m a big fan of this new venture and I plan on following along for every story he releases.

My first read by this author but I do believe I'll continue to read more. While the book could stand a bit of editing (I purchased a copy on Amazon) and proofreading, I really enjoyed the story line. Insta-lust - most definitely but not insta-love which I thought was great. These two both have their separate issues to deal with and it won't happen in a short book and I'm glad the author took that into consideration. Finding yourself - whether you are 26 or 40 - takes time. Their chemistry was ho ...more

Loved the story

Loved the story. Loved the main characters. What happened to a F.E. Feeley book? Verb tense. Other grammar mistakes. Please edit. I detracted a star because the errors interfered with the flow of my reading.
