I actually don't think that Unabated is one of my steamiest books...for lack of a better term. But I guess that's debatable. It is sexy and it is a full length novel...and it does have a strong love story about new adults.
I do know that the theme of this new adult gay romance explores the concept of gay open marriages, and all the rules that go along with them. And the subplot has to do with two gay men who have been together for many years and are keeping a deep dark secret from everyone.
It's not a mystery, but it does have a happy ending. I think that's important, because it's so hard to find a happy ending with any gay content that is produced these days.
In any event, here are a few of the links, and the blurb is below. It will be in a few other places, too, and I'll post them soon. It's usually in iTunes.
It will also be available as a print book soon.
Danny and Vince have an almost perfect gay marriage in New York, and then they move to a small gay enclave in the suburbs of Pennsylvania where they discover something interesting: most of the older gay couples have open marriages. Danny and Vince are still in their twenties, and everything about their lives is new and exciting. So when they leave New York to be closer to Vince's job as a TV weather person in Pennsylvania, they discover they're interested in exploring the possibilities of an open gay marriage, too.
In the midst of all this "adulting," from being first time homeowners to buying a new car, the changes Danny and Vince experience in the small town of Penn's Grant lead them to new sexual and emotional experiences they never had in New York. They not only meet gay couples who have been together for decades, but a few who have been leading double lives and hiding deep dark secrets that have ruled their lives. Thanks to his new open gay marriage, Danny discovers a few secrets about his own strong desires for men he never knew existed.
Will their open gay marriage ruin them both forever, or will it wind up bringing them closer together? And will the move to Penn's Grant turn them into the small town gay couple they never wanted to become in the first place?
Male Full Frontal Nudity On TV
Here's another article that explores male full frontal nudity, and the double standard, but on TV this time. Of course Game of Thrones is there.
Before Meloni became a huge network star on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, he joined the cast of HBO’s jail drama Oz. The series frequently had fights in the shower, graphic nude scenes, and a uniquely naked approach to solitary confinement. Meloni was not shy about being all kinds of naked including a scene where he’s fully nude talking with EGOT-winner Rita Moreno.

Is Sexting Cheating?
I've never thought too much about this one. I haven't even put it in a book...yet. But I think it brings up an interesting question: is sexting actually cheating? And when I say sexting I'm talking about DMs, too.
They did a survey and this is what they found...those "they" survey people.
35 percent of respondents said that yes, sexting is tantamount to cheating. Meanwhile, one in 10 say they thought it was “just a bit of fun.” And 62 percent said sending dirty pictures is worse than sending dirty texts.
Eight percent of respondents said they had sexted with someone other than their partner in the last year, and one third of them said the sexting had resulted in them ultimately meeting up and having sex behind their partner’s back.
You can read the rest here, where there's a survey that you can take. One of the answers is "Only when you get caught."
Evidently, it's complicated.
