The first book of the DOUBLE CLUB series goes fully into the early years of the main cast of characters. They're a bunch of very complex guys from all over the United States and not all of them have had the best upbringing.

Tanner Fierro and his little brother Josh escape an abusive home in Austin, Texas. Jagger Hollis lives with his troubled mother and terrible father in Essex, Vermont. Lee Kennison joins the military and leaves his first love and his home of Seaside, Oregon. Gianni Scarpello, the youngest of three boys in an Italian family who has never had a day of peace from his cruel mother, decides to stay in America when the rest of his family move to Italy to manage the family estates. Preston Durant, son of a wealthy restaurateur, needs to learn what matters to him the most, devotion to love ... or the devotion to his work.

And Kieran Lockhart, only son of a ruthless billionaire tycoon who uses intimidation and control to mold his son into the ideal heir to a vast corporate fortune. From various backgrounds, the guys of the DOUBLE CLUB come together as friends and lovers in the beginning of this amazing series.

In the second book of the DOUBLE CLUB series, Jagger Hollis has had enough of his troubled life in Vermont. He longs for a new life somewhere sunny and warm, so he packs up and moves down to Sarasota, Florida. He gets a job there and it's not long before he meets Lee Kennison, who innocently invites him to dinner at home with his companion and a friend who's having some problems.

Jagger, shy, guarded, and extremely quiet, agrees and after he begins opening up some and finding new friendships, he meets someone who throws his mind, heart, and soul into complete and utter chaos internally. Jagger is not used to these kinds of feelings and begins to struggle with what to do about it.

He's not alone, because his new friends are there for him. They will do anything to help him learn more about himself and to get a handle on the torrent of emotions that threaten to bring down all the walls he has built around his heart.
