- Catching Blue Jay
After years of separation and silence, former best friends find not only each other, but also the attraction that still flares hot as ever. Will fears of the past and the return of a former fiancé cost them their second chance?
The disappearance of his best friend at 15 had Aidan battling his way through depression and suicidal thoughts to become a well-known software developer. With the support of the friends who saved his life, he’s got a great career and a life worth living. Only one thing is missing, the love he’d briefly known before his best friend moved and quit speaking to him.
Returning to Oklahoma in hopes of reuniting with the friend he’d ghosted years before, Jayson found only heartache and a man who’d end up leaving him at the altar. A chance meeting on a dance floor where he locks eyes with the pair he’d always known as well as his own sends him running in panic. Knowing that he needs to own up to what he’d done in the past, Jayson gathers up his courage to face Aidan and learns just how much damage he’d really done.
Both men fight fears of being left behind, keeping their budding relationship on shaky ground. When Jayson’s ex-fiancé shows back up, they have to discover if the foundation they’ve built is strong enough to withstand the pressure. Will Aidan take the leap to catch the Jayson’s heart forever?

Ghosting my best friend is my biggest regret. Will my past cost me my second chance?
Running. That’s what I’m good at. When Aidan kissed me for the first time, I not only ran, I moved and ghosted him, breaking all my promises to keep in touch. Locking eyes with him years later sends me running again.
As my past catches up to me, I know I’ve got to stop running. It’s not easy facing my fears. Am I brave enough to reach out for what I want?
I lost Aidan once. I can’t lose him again.
