“Seriously, he’s a keeper. Trust me on that.”

25-year-old Daniel has two primary concerns in life. They are acting and writing, in that order. Until he lands a role kissing brawny, burly local Milwaukee theater veteran Stanley onstage. It causes a sensation and leads to sold-out audiences for the show. Daniel is soon known as the straight guy playing gay, until his curiosity, and effort to escape from the buzzing crowd, lands him in the arms of boy-next-door Mark. Their relationship turns his world upside down.

Mark, the grandson of wealthy pillars of local society, is licking his wounds after the abrupt end of a toxic three-month relationship. Despite a wealth of past advice against engaging in a rebound romance, he can’t ignore tall, blonde, blue-eyed leading man Daniel. Mark’s patience and Daniel’s curiosity are a perfect match, but the aspirations of a man with acting in his blood aren’t conducive to the establishment of a stable, comfortable relationship.

The desire is there, and they set the sheets on fire in bed, but is it enough when New York comes calling for Daniel?

The First Time Around is a 50,000 word first-time-gay romance novel. It is the second book in the Romance In the City series. It features characters from the first book, The Pretend Husband, but it can be read as a standalone novel. It has steamy scenes, no cliffhangers, and a happily-ever-after ending.
