*Note: This short gay romance contains hot gay m/m sex scenes.
Dreams really can come true, but at what cost? Z has it all: several platinum and gold record albums, fame that would make the average superstar jealous, and more money than he could ever spend.
Jason has risen to the top of his field in the competitive city of New York. He, too, finds himself successful and reasonably wealthy.
But nobody gets to have everything. Living on opposite ends of the country ends up putting too much of a strain on their relationship. Now each man struggles with the decisions they’ve made, wondering if they were the right ones.
They had both once believed their love was forever. Reality came crashing in, and now they each have to come to terms with what is more important: career or the long ago promises whispered in the night, back when love looked so impossibly easy.
*Book 5 of the Performance Series. Each book is a short story and can stand alone but are best read as a series.
I was a little shocked with this book cover until I read the book and realised that it fits the MC’s in the short story perfectly.
This is the fifth book in the Performance Series, the book title made me think that this was the final part of the series, I was wrong there is still one more book to come.
In this short story four years has past since we last saw Jason and Zeke. A lot has happened with both of them, Zeke is famous, Jason is settled working for himself. The only thing wrong is there relationship, or lack of. Changes need to be made if they both want true happiness.
I cried when I started reading, I was full of happiness when I had finished. The sex as always is sizzling between these two very different guys. I have enjoyed following Jason and Zekes lives as the years pass. Nothing in a relationship is easy, these guys have had a lot of hurdles to jump. Things fall apart for a while but as we all know when you meet your one and only true love you will fight to the very end.
Over all a fantastic short story. I can not wait to read the last book in this series.

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”.
