Ezra Kaneshiro likes a challenge—he’s a pre-med student aiming to be a doctor in war-torn countries, after all. Maybe that’s why his roommate intrigues him. All this time, Malik has given off “repressed gay” vibes, yet now he seems genuinely happy with his fiery new girlfriend. But if that’s the case, why does he get awkward when Ezra undresses, and why did he stare back for so long when Ezra caught him in a compromising position?
Positive there’s more to his roommate, Ezra begins to prod. A drinking game brings Malik to the precipice, but it’s not enough. Not quite. When Malik spills that he and Portia aren’t exactly monogamous, Ezra makes his move.
After all, Ezra has nothing to lose … except the first man he’s ever fallen for.

We'll Always Have This by Kate Larkindale
Aislynn considers Wilde Flowers her sanctuary. Run by an old woman more accepting than all the churches in town combined, it’s a place where Aislynn can be her queer, pansexual, untraditionally feminine self. Wilde Flowers is her safe space until her childhood bully Phoenix waltzes in, as infuriating and beautiful as when she moved to Utah two years ago.
To Aislynn’s horror, she ends up working in Wilde Flowers with Phoenix as a temp. The two butt heads constantly, and their rivalry explodes when Aislynn lays bare all of Phoenix’s horrendous bullying in the past. Yet it’s Aislynn who’s asked to leave, and she’s devastated, feeling her sanctuary has been ripped out from beneath her.
But then Phoenix comes to apologize, and what she has to say will irrevocably change how Aislynn views her… not to mention how their relationship unfolds from that day forward, as Aislynn sees a whole new side to the abrasive, cutthroat Phoenix.
About the Author
A military brat who lucked out and grew up mostly in the Pacific Northwest, Deidre has been reading for as long as she can remember. In Christmas of 1998, her grandmother sent three books (out of order!) from the then-popular Night World series. Within the year, Deidre owned most of L.J. Smith's works and couldn't get enough. She wanted more YA, more vampires, more enthralling and dangerous romances. So, she figured, she'd write her own.
Now she's is the author of the Modern Greek Myth trilogy, the Secrets of the Sequoia trilogy, and the Burning Britely LGBTQ+ duology.
Deidre identifies as a sapphic she/her.
