Audie and Calhoun have been hiding their clandestine relationship from their parents throughout college. But Audie’s traumatic history of abuse at their hands leaves him with the idea that he has little to offer a committed relationship. Audie feels stuck in an inescapable narrative: he hurts, and Calhoun saves him. He’s tired of always feeling like the drama queen, tired of always playing the traumatized boyfriend. He wants something real to give Calhoun — if only he can figure out what that is. And if only Calhoun will let him.
Another true-love romance filled with lyrical prose from author Julia McBryant, the short story collection Neon Saturday Night uses humor, angst, high heat, and hurt/comfort to draw two young lovers closer together than ever.
The Low Country Lovers series is a spin-off of the Southern Seduction series and takes place in the same universe; Low Country Lovers can be read on its own.
