Why there’s a need for books like See the Light
by Cassandra Carr
A friend of mine forwarded an article about how Russia has legislation pending outlawing “homosexual propaganda”. Basically, that will mean any public display of pro-gay rights can and will be prosecuted. Why is this important? Well, for one thing, the next Olympics is slated to take place in Russia. If Russia has, for all intents and purposes, outlawed homosexuality, how will gay athletes be received and treated at the Olympics?
It’s funny (well, not ha-ha funny, but you get my drift) that my friend would send me this article. He actually didn’t know I was writing a book (See the Light) about a closeted gay hockey player who goes to the Olympics. Reading the article showed me there is, in fact, a need for people like me to write books about these situations. Some of you may think I’m overstating the case, but consider this: for the last couple of Olympics at the very least there has been a Pride House – a place where LGBT athletes could to for support and so they could be themselves. Russia is refusing to include a Pride House in the Olympic Village.
There are NO openly gay players in any of the four major professional sports – NFL, NBA, MLB, and the NHL. I’m hoping that will change soon, but until it does – until gay players are accepted just like those who are of a different race or background, I’ll keep writing books about the issue.
What’s your feeling on this? Do you agree with me that there’s a need for books for See the Light?
Title: See the Light by Cassandra Carr
Publisher: Loose Id, LLC
Genre: Contemporary, Erotic, Romance, M/M
Hockey player Jason Monroe lives a double life—star defenseman and soon-to-be Olympian on the ice and closeted gay man outside the rink. A serious relationship is out of the question, and Jason makes do with anonymous sex in barroom bathrooms, not willing to take the chance on coming out as gay in a decidedly macho sport.
Advisor to the US Olympic hockey team Patrick Parker knows a thing or two about being a professional hockey player who’s not out. He’s fifteen years older than Jason, and when he senses the sexy younger man is interested, he knows he shouldn’t give in to the attraction.
The two men can’t keep their hands off each other, though, and with each heated encounter it gets harder to hide their relationship. When their world blows up around them, forcing them into the limelight, though, will their love survive or be put on ice?
Apparently Patrick didn’t know either, because his expression became alarmed. “What?”
I can’t stop.
“I need to do this.”
Not giving Patrick a chance to react to his words, Jason grabbed him, one hand palming the back of Patrick’s head as Jason’s other arm snaked around the man’s waist, pulling him into Patrick’s rock-hard body. It was obvious the man kept in shape, despite his playing days being over, and a tortured moan escaped before he could stop it. Jason dived into Patrick’s mouth as the passion flared, melting him from the inside out. He hadn’t kissed a man in years, and he realized how much he’d missed it as the kiss went on and on, neither man willing to let the other go.
He could feel Patrick’s cock as it lined up with his, and even through layers of clothing Jason felt the heat pouring off the other man. It made him want to submit to anything Patrick desired, which confused him. Honestly Jason couldn’t remember the last time he’d had a man’s dick in his mouth, but right now he’d give just about anything to suck Patrick off.
Patrick pushed them backward until they crashed into the wall, never letting their lips separate as he took control of the kiss. With a growl, the older man reached down and cupped Jason’s ass, pulling their cocks even closer and rubbing them together. Jason turned his head to the side with a gasp to break the
kiss before he passed out, but Patrick kept at him, scoring his teeth down Jason’s neck to his pulse point.
“So fucking hot.”
