Genres: YA contemporary gay romantic fiction

Description:

My name is Mia Kerick and I have recently written a work of young adult contemporary gay romantic fiction called Intervention, published by Harmony Ink Press. Intervention details the developing relationship between two eighteen-year-old boys: Kai, a free-spirited and sexually aware senior in high school, and Jamie, an introverted and sullen freshman at the local arts university. Both young men work at Coed Joe’s, a college coffee house, where Kai is the musical entertainer and Jamie is a waiter. After being rudely rebuffed and subsequently ignored when he approaches Jamie to ask for a date, Kai becomes aware of the harsh circumstances, of Jamie’s life. In specific, he discovers that Jamie has been sexually abused in the past by his much older stepbrother. He devises a “musical intervention” that uses the lyrics of the popular songs he sings at the café to touch the troubled soul of his coworker. As Jamie gradually emerges from his shell in response to this intervention, Kai gains a new understanding of what physical closeness in a relationship really means.
The sexual heat level of Intervention is rather mild, with no descriptive detail of sexual relations, however, the fact that Jamie had been sexually abused by an older stepbrother throughout his high school years is a topic that is addressed. The fact that the two young men are gay is not the focus of the book. The focus is on the growth of these two young people as individuals, and on their mutual recognition of the beauty of a trusting relationship in which a sexual relationship is not the primary goal.
