Today I am so pleased to welcome Kim Breyon to Joyfully Jay. Kim has come to talk to us about her latest release, Roxy’s Recovery. She has also brought along a great giveaway. Please join me in giving her a big welcome!



Alex’s eyes fell to my lips. “Listen, Vaughn—

His tone caught me off guard, instantly reminding me of all the times I’d been rejected in my life. I hated how easily my deepest insecurities sprang forth, but after hearing his heart through his music this morning, I just wasn’t sure where he stood anymore. “If you’re going to say we shouldn’t have kissed, I just want to say I disagree. I’m glad we did.”

He tilted his head in confusion. “That’s… not even close to what I was going to say.”

“It wasn’t?”

He stepped in the room. “No. I was going to say I was sorry for not staying for breakfast like I usually do.”

I frowned. “Yeah, I missed seeing you, but you don’t need to apologize.”

He gave a halfhearted smile and seemed unsure how to reply. After a silent pause, Alex stepped further into the closet, putting us within reach. He put a hand on my waist and turned me so we were facing each other. “It definitely wasn’t the kiss,” he said in quiet reassurance. “I haven’t been able to stop thinking about that.”

His honesty melted away all my worries, and I wrapped an arm around his neck, leaning in until I could feel his breath ghost across my lips. “Me either.”

He closed the distance, kissing me with a lot more need and determination than he had last night. His tongue swept in to dance with mine, and I tasted mint, as if he’d just brushed his teeth before coming downstairs. The soft scrape of his beard against my skin had my blood pumping. My fingers threaded through his hair as he roughly pushed me back against the shelves.

“Yes,” I breathed as Alex moved to my neck, trailing a line of kisses from my chin to my ear. I instinctively rocked my hips against his, wanting more. Finally.

Something clattered in the hall, making us jump apart. After glancing at the door, we turned back to each other, quietly laughing. Alex pressed his body against mine once more, his eyes hooded as he ran a thumb over my lower lip. “To be continued?” he asked.


As the newest veterinarian in the small town of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, Vaughn Winters doesn’t have time for relationships. He is too busy healing injuries and establishing his reputation as a trustworthy vet. But when a strange man waves him down one stormy night seeking help for his injured dog, Vaughn simply can’t refuse.

Obviously homeless and with no means to pay for Roxy’s medical care, Vaughn throws caution to the wind and strikes a deal with the hesitant stranger that would allow Roxy the time to heal and provide some much-needed TLC to his property as well. As the days pass, Vaughn’s curiosity grows. Alex’s dedication to the job is as surprising as the sexy tats hidden beneath his rugged clothes. What could have pushed this kind, hardworking man to the streets, or cast such dark shadows in his otherwise bright blue eyes?

Will six weeks be enough time to earn Alex’s trust? Or will asking questions cause him to tuck tail and run as soon as Roxy is able?


Roxy’s Recovery is a 61k standalone contemporary romance involving two men, a meddling sister, and a seriously sassy pug.


I am an Idaho native who grew up dreaming about traveling the world and writing stories. As a child, I would often spend my spare time curled up with my favorite blanket and a notebook, writing another fairy tale. I never would have guessed those fairy tales would one day grow into gay romances, but that is where my heart led me and I am so glad it did. I write about love because I believe it can happen to anyone, with anyone. I also believe dreams never expire, redemption is possible, and true forgiveness can heal us in ways we never expect. I know firsthand how messy life can get, but as any artist will tell you, a little mess is needed to create something beautiful. You can often find me with a mug of coffee in one hand and a dog toy in the other. There is never a day that goes by without my sweet boy insisting on a game – or twenty – of fetch.
