Six long weeks. That’s how much time has passed since Jason’s been with Z. Z and his band have been on a small tour, and Jason found his dreams filled with the sensual blond man every single night since they’d said goodbye. Z promised he’d return to him, and Jason promised he’d wait. They’d been in frequent contact, but now the time to reunite is here—and Jason finds himself filled with worry. What if the hot, sexy singer had only been playing him?
He heads toward Z’s apartment for the long anticipated reunion, but suddenly realizes he hasn’t eaten all day. Stopping by a restaurant for a quick burger, who should he see but Z himself! His heart does a flip as he hardens—until he notices Z is with a woman. A very beautiful woman. Their fingers touch, and Jason is filled with the knowledge he’s once again been played.
Damn. It had felt so real, so intensely hot. He should have known there was no such thing as happy ever after. He decides to make Z squirm and approaches their table.
Then Z looks up, and they lock eyes…

Another very hot cover, that fits the short story perfectly.
This is the second book in the Performance Series, it follows on perfectly from book one.
Jason and Zeke aka Z meet up again after been apart for 6 very long weeks. Lust has turned to love for the two of them. This short story is written in such a way that you can actually feel the lust and love coming off the pages. These two MC’s just do it for me, the mix between them is perfect in every way.
The sex is very hot, the shower scene ‘phew’ fans myself. For such a short story there is enough content to keep wanting to keep reading and wanting much more.
I do like the authors writing style, its light, easy to read and the words just flow. This is defiantly an author I will follow, I hope to read lots more of her books in the future.
Overall a great story of lust, love and sex. I can’t wait to read more in this series. I want lots more of Jason and Zeke.
10/10 Pots of Gold
Sibley Jackson is the pen name that author Caddy Rowland uses when writing gay m/m romance. After three years of writing drama, psychological thriller, historical fiction, and family saga Caddy wanted to expand into romance, but preferred writing gay m/m. Since her books have always been GLBT inclusive, some with gay main characters, it was a natural progression.
Although she was familiar with writing gay fiction, writing m/m romance—which is primarily read by females—offered new challenges. Sibley strives to make the characters read like real men, yet she makes sure the romantic thoughts and feelings women love to read about are also there. Additionally, the sex scenes are hot and explicit, tending more toward how two men communicate when having sex, instead of a man with a woman.
Sibley plans on writing at least four books in her first series (The Performance Series). She will then write other gay m/m romance series, hoping to give readers of that genre an exciting and rewarding storyline with male characters who are men, instead of one being simply “a chick with a dick”.
Caddy Rowland aka Sibley Jackson
As an author under my actual name, Caddy Rowland, I have two series out. Both are drama, while one is also historical fiction/family saga and the other is psychological fiction. In addition, all of my work is GLBT inclusive. The Gastien Series, besides having side characters that are gay or lesbian, includes a gay main character in the 2nd half of the 4th book and all of the 5th. The 5th could also be considered an historical gay romance. There was a House Saga has a gay boy who shares main character status with a straight girl, starting late in the first book. So, I’ve always written gay characters.
Then I wrote a 100 word story based on a picture Marc Fleischhauer posted as a challenge to us about a month ago and found I couldn’t get the story out of my mind. It stuck with me, whispering “Ya gotta do this” over and over until I finally said, “What the hell. I’m going to write some gay m/m romance. I’ll make them short stories. It will give me a chance to test Amazon Select and their Kindle Unlimited programs.” I’ve never been a fan of being exclusive on Amazon, as I make at least half my income on other sites. Plus, Kindle Unlimited pays a much smaller royalty to each author if they write full length novels and aren’t giving them away for a ridiculously low price then they do if the book is not in Select. I don’t mind selling a full length novel for less than a movie ticket, but I do mind selling one for less than a soda in a vending machine.
But Kindle Unlimited is perfect for short stories. Readers who belong to the program can read them for “free” and those who don’t can still buy them on Amazon, and even convert them to epub using Calibre (a free epub converter). Cool! Deciding I had nothing to lose by giving it a try—and wanting to shut up that nagging whisper—I decided to write some gay m/m romance.
Sibley Jackson was born. Sibley is my pen name for gay m/m romance. It isn’t a secret. Not at all. It’s simply a branding issue. I want people who are looking specifically for gay m/m romance to be able to tell at a glance it’s what they’re getting if they see Sibley Jackson as the author. Other than that, I have her connected with my Caddy Rowland social media everywhere it makes sense. She does have her own email and new release notification sign-up. If someone checks Amazon for Sibley, they will find her…but her bio asks people to go to Caddy Rowland’s page for more information. She is mentioned on Goodreads in Caddy Rowland’s bio also. There is no separate account for her there. Nor does she have a separate facebook page. Maintaining two separate identities all over the internet takes away too much writing time.
And you know what? I’m having a blast writing under Sibley Jackson. I’ve got two books out in her first series: The Performance Series. The first is Private Performance.
*Note: This short gay romance contains hot gay m/m sex scenes.
Jason had sworn to never care for a guy again before taking it slow and easy when it came to the relationship department. He’d chosen poorly once. By the time he walked away his self-esteem had been in shreds.
Z is a dynamic, sensual rock star in the making. His band is hoping to hit the big-time and they’re getting close. He realized long ago his lifestyle had no room for a long-term relationship.
Then Z plays at Boys Will Be Boys, a popular gay club for a charity event, and Jason has a front row table. When their eyes meet it seems destiny has other plans for the two young men. Both tell themselves it can’t work out. They should just enjoy one night of hot sex and move on.
But love insists on entering the scene, just when neither is looking for it.
*Book 1 of the Performance Series. Each book is a short story and can stand alone but are best read as a series.
