wof coverWaiting On Forever

Brayden Tanner wasn’t my first love, but he should have been my forever. Until one night that ruined it all.

Falling in love with Brayden was easy, despite the tragedy we faced that brought us together. My life was all planned out, or so I thought.

Now, home for a town wide celebration has me dreading a guaranteed encounter with the boy I left behind so many years ago. Knowing I can’t escape him nor the memories of what happened between us, I’m forced to confront the truth of why I left.

The spark that ignited years ago never dimmed, but are we too late? Does our relationship deserve a second chance or will we still be waiting on forever?

fs cover

People say married life is bliss. That’s what Claire is banking on after marrying Brayden Tanner, the love of her life. He’s quite the catch: he cooks, he cleans, and despite his propensity for mint chocolate chip ice cream, he’s the only man she’s ever wanted.

Unfortunately, for Claire and Brayden, life’s never gone the way they’ve expected. Does “happily ever after” truly exist if life continuously hands you one disappointment after another?

Forever And A Day

I’ve known Brayden Tanner since I was five years old. Sure, maybe I didn’t fall head over heels in love that day, but the spark was always there. Then, you know, life happened; sparks don’t always last.

But eventually, first came love, then marriage, and then even the baby carriage. Well, carriages, so it seems.
Four times I’ve been blessed.
Four times the diapers.
Four times the sleepless nights.
Four times the crazy.
Most importantly, four times the love.

Through it all, there’s been ONE constant: Brayden Tanner. And for that, I wouldn’t trade my life for anything.

Every day is chaos, yet it’s ours. And I hope it lasts forever….and a day.

Defining Us

I was never a girl who believed in love. And love at first sight? Surely that didn’t truly exist. So imagine my surprise when, after one kiss from Grayson Abbott, I asked him to marry me!

I was kidding of course, but there was something special about the guy that even I couldn’t deny.

Our connection was instant; he felt it, too. The only problem was he didn’t know the secret of my past that I buried years ago. The closer we became, the further down I buried that secret.

I know he deserves my truth, but when I finally come clean, will there still be an “us”?

The Highway Ride

I rode for my son…

Over 150 miles of distance separate me from my son. For over three years, I’ve packed up every other Friday and made the hours-long journey to be with him.  It’s a sacrifice I’ve accepted as obligations beyond my control keep us apart.

One random Sunday night, before packing up and saying goodbye, my son and I stop off for dinner in a diner, one that we’ve driven by numerous times over the past few years. Charlotte Grandy, the awkward and cute waitress, captivates not only me, but my son as well.

There’s a strong possibility I’ll never see her again…but I couldn’t leave without letting her know how I felt.

Soon, I will ride for her…

A relationship is the furthest thing from my mind, but I couldn’t stay away. I don’t have much time to offer her; my life comes with baggage, more than any woman should have to deal with. Yet, Charlotte doesn’t walk away.

It can’t last.

If one thing in my life is guaranteed, it’s that goodbye is inevitable.

Legally Bound

Legally Bound JR Grayabout the book button red and black

The last thing Daniel, a hard-working public defender, expected to see the morning after a one night stand was his hook up staring back at him from the wrong side of the law. Assigned to work his case, Daniel vows to keep things professional with Rafael but has a hard time controlling his craving for dominance, the control and the connection they shared. Rafael, a paid dominant in the Chicago underworld, has been dealing with a cop problem for far too long. Used to sex with no emotion, he’s entranced with Daniel’s submission, his innocence, and…could there be something more? Can Daniel clear Rafael’s name, keeping him out of jail and in his life, with the odds, a cop, and the mounting evidence against them?

 

Excerpt red and black button

 

            Daniel scanned them, looking for anything interesting to lift the dreary Monday, and his eyes went wide when they landed on the face of the man whose bed he had been in last night. “Oh shit,” he said too loudly, drawing the attention of the bailiff. He waved her off, muttering, “Nothing.”

            “What?” Jesse hissed.

            “I fucked one of our cases last night,” Daniel admitted, knowing he would get it out of him one way or another. There was no point fighting his partner’s excellent extraction skills.

            “Which one?” Jesse asked, looking over his shoulder, way too amused.

            He tried to nod subtly to one of the prisoners.

            “You have to give me more than that.” Jesse stood up and blatantly turned around to study the men sitting in the rows behind them.

            Stiffening in his seat, Daniel tried to keep his back to the man he had seen every naked inch of, as well as had his tongue buried inside of, till the early hours of the morning.

            “Dark hair, six feet plus, green eyes.” He tried to speak out of the corner of his mouth so no one could read his lips.

            “The one with the sleeve tattoo and the huge arms?” Jesse asked.

            “Yeah,” he answered in a low, sheepish voice.

            “I knew it was that one. You so have a type.” Jesse flipped back around to take his seat once more. He instantly went for the files, lifting up folders and setting the large stack right in front of him.

            “What are you doing?” Daniel kept looking over his shoulder to see if the guy showed any signs of recognition.

            “What’s his name?” He didn’t look up from the stack of files as he spoke. “Rafael,” he whispered as his face flushed just saying his name. “What are you doing?”

            “Figuring out what your lay did,” Jesse said, positively glowing by now.

            “I really hate you,” he responded, pulling at his tie and trying to loosen it.

            “You’ll thank me later.” Jesse hummed, plucking out the file and flipping it open. “Oh, hot damn, you picked a good one.”

            Daniel snatched the file out of his partner’s hands, his eyes going wide. Life just got a little more interesting.

            All through the arraignment hearing, he found it hard to keep his mind off the previous night spent at Rafael’s apartment. They’d had an instant connection. He groaned to himself as it became increasingly hard to focus.

            “Do you think he did it?”

            “Who knows, but how many innocent men do we represent?”

            Daniel’s stomach knotted. He didn’t want the allegations to be true. “Good point.”

Breach of Contract (book 2)

breach of contract jr gray

about the book button red and black
With the legal trouble behind them, Daniel Caplin and Rafael Argon are ready to settle into a low-key D/s relationship, but life is unrelenting, when blackmail shatters their illusion of happily ever after. Pictures from one of the Rafael’s public scenes instill fear into his new submissive, Daniel, acting as a wedge driving the new couple apart.

The building peril in George’s community weighs heavy on his shoulders as he struggles to find the culprit—all while hiding his feelings for his new house guest. Jesse is torn between ending his marriage, picking up a rebound he should have left fifteen years in the past, and the dangling carrot of a possible relationship with a man. He is forced to fight for what he wants most, a leap he may be too chicken to take.

In the sequel to Legally Bound, George battles to take down an unknown enemy, while watching helplessly as those he cares for are broken beyond repair. Can Rafael and Daniel rebuild their trust after it’s broken with lies? Can George hold it together as Jesse is ripped from his life?

Excerpt red and black button

The back elevator dinged as he approached, and the doors slid back to reveal Jesse’s face. He had circles under his eyes and worry lines in his forehead. Two fingers held a garment bag over one shoulder and a duffle over his other.

            “Is it still okay if I stay?” He put a smile on his lips that George knew was fake.

            “But of course. Let me help you.” George approached him and tried to take the bag, but Jesse didn’t move to hand it over.

            “I’ve got it.”

            “Don’t be absurd. I would have a slave do it, but he’s rather tied up at the moment.”

            The statement earned a chuckle out of Jesse, and he gave up the bag. Even hurt Jesse had a light in his blue eyes and his heart on his sleeve, a trait that made him wholly unique compared to the masks most wore to impress George.

            “I can stay on the sofa or something if the slaves use the guest rooms.”

            George laughed and turned his back to stalk down the hall. When he didn’t hear Jesse following, he cast a glance over his shoulder.

            “Slaves in bed … how naive you really are, handsome.”

            Jesse started after him, brow creased. “Where do they sleep then?” He caught up and followed George to the other side of the penthouse.

            He realized Jesse was serious, and he laughed throatily again. “I have cages for them.”

            “I love you and Daniel, but your lifestyle is fucked.”

Illicit Activity (book 3)

about the book button red and black

illicit activity jr gray

The Christmas season is fast approaching. Jesse and George try to keep their connection alive with stolen late night dinners and secret meetings, which never seem to be enough.
Zac doesn’t take no for an answer, and has set his sights on George’s slave Elliot as his newest conquest. Determined to see Elliot and bring him some holiday spirit, Zac starts a battle of wits with George. But Will George be able to outsmart Zac, and keep him away from Elliot, for long?

Excerpt red and black button

The doorbell rang early in the morning. Elliot had finished his chores and was sitting on the floor next to the fire, working on his homework. There was no one else in the penthouse, and he wasn’t expecting anyone. When he wrenched open the heavy, ornate door he found Zac, Jesse’s brother, staring back at him wearing fireman pants and suspenders to hold them up. His body was smeared with charcoal, and he looked oiled. Elliot was entirely confused.

“The exact face I wanted to see.”

“Can I help you, Sir?” Elliot reverted to his training.

“Yes, I have a hose that needs servicing.” Zac grinned wickedly.

Elliot tried not to let the shock show on his face. “I’m sorry, the King is out. Can I take a message?” He shifted and squirmed, getting flustered at the seeming advance from the beautiful redhead.

“I didn’t want it from him.” The bulge in Zac’s pants was noticeable, and Elliot tried not to stare. “And I knew he was gone.”

“How did you know he was gone?”

“I watched his car through the camera I installed above his parking space ‘til it left.” He flattened out his mouth and raised both brows like it was no big deal.

Elliot stared.

Veil of Scars Coming April 21st from J.R. Gray & Evernight publishing

 veil of scars jr gray

about the book button red and black

Steven is tall, dark and damaged. He doesn’t let anyone close, comfortable on the outside of normal life where he can hide his scars behind a wall so high that nothing gets through…except them. Despite a childhood marred with black and blue, he’s survived and moved in with his two best friends, Sam and Charlie.

Life should get better, but it was Sam who held him when the dark threatened to swallow him whole, Sam who gave him a place that felt like home, and Sam who knew every scar and every broken place.

And it’s all been taken away with Charlie sharing Sam’s bed.

Without his former confront, Steven realizes what’s been hiding in the deep corners of his heart, and the truth sinks him like a weight. He’s in love with one or maybe both of his roommates. Navigating unrequited love tears Steven apart and brings him to the precipice, and he has to choose: his feelings or Sam’s…and Charlie’s?

Here is a sneak peek from Veil of Scars:

 

            “Charlie coming home from the party, too?” I didn’t dare to hope.

“She didn’t go. She’s pulling an all-nighter in the library with a group for a project or something or other.” He shrugged.

Maybe I would get a stolen night. One like old times.

We sat there for a while in silence, not quite wrapped up in one another but taking comfort from the other’s body heat. I closed my eyes. Even on the sofa a night in his arms was bliss.

“Want to go to bed?” Sam asked, rousing me from the light sleep I had slipped into.

“Yeah, sorry.” I got to my feet, cheeks flushing a bit, realizing I’d just fallen into something that wasn’t a reality anymore. In seven months there had been a few stolen nights with my best friend, but living with Charlie had put a stop to how we once were.

His brows fell, and he looked up at me before getting to his feet. I was turning to head to my room when he grabbed me by the hand, lacing his fingers through mine. I stopped, looking up to search his face.

He didn’t say a word as he led me to the bed he shared with her. I couldn’t help the smile that spread over my lips. The dark gave me the cover I needed to watch him pull the polo off his broad shoulders and cast it aside. I kicked out of my jeans and added my shirt to his on the floor, before crawling into bed.

The assured way he scooted in after me, coming up from behind to wrap his arms around my body, gave me a pain in the middle of my chest I couldn’t explain. I leaned back into his bare skin, and a calm washed over me. Within moments, it was like the nervous bundle of energy that had been wound inside me for months started to dissolve.

He tucked his head in next to my shoulder and whispered, “Goodnight,” against my skin.

the author red and black button

When not staying up all night writing, J.R Gray can be found basking in the warm glow of the Miami sun, or at the gym where it’s half assumed Gray is a permanent resident. A dominant, pilot, and sword fighting enthusiast, Gray finds it hard to be in the passenger seat of any car. Gray frequently interrupts real life, including normal sleep patterns, to jot down nonsense. The bane of Gray’s existence are commas, and even though it’s been fully acknowledged they are necessary, they continue to baffle and bewilder.

If Gray wasn’t writing…well, that’s not possible. The buildup of untold stories would haunt Gray into an early grave or possibly a mental institution where the tales would end up on the walls in crayon and finger paint.

about the author

bl marsh author pic

B. L. Marsh has been writing and telling stories her entire life. She is a music teacher, guest lecturer and runs Master Classes. Her academic research is focused on the L’homme arme tradition, the Dead Sea Scrolls, chant transmission in the Medieval and Renaissance, and Gnostic and Kabbalah history. Her passion for spirituality, mythology and developing her relationship with God are parts of her Rule of Life. In her reading of the Bible and other extra-biblical texts however, she began to daydream about the characters, about how life was back then, and how cool it would have been to walk in the Garden with God. Her stories weave a new mythology revolving around Genesis.

When she is not writing or teaching, she spends her days hanging out with five of the coolest boys on the planet and at night can be found doing completely ridiculous things like reading Joseph Campbell and Jane Austin and watching the same 3 movies on TV.
