Unconditionally is a novella part of a series but can be read as a standalone complete with a HEA. May not be for all readers as it contains M/M situations.

Toby Morgan grew up the black sheep in his illustrious uppity family due to his sexual preferences. He didn’t see how being gay was a hindrance in any light.

Being an accountant by day, a kickass singer for The Nation’s Capital on the side, and a fashion and makeup extraordinaire by night, he tried to face every obstacle he encountered with perseverance and positivity.

Always being one to bask in the limelight and being the center of attention, but what everyone didn’t see was the scared and insecure little boy lurking inside and behind closed doors.

He had waited his entire life to find love and his happily ever after and just when he thought he had grasped his dreams head on, doubt puts a screeching halt in his happiness.

Now it seemed that there were two different men with their sights set on him and they were both vying for his affection.

In the end, will Toby find his one special someone who will love him unconditionally?

What’s better than a funny gay guy trying to find his love match? Well not much and Unconditionally delivers. Will Toby go back to his Ex, Gio or will he pick the stable hot Sheriff, Ethan? What about the recent one-night stand, Roman? Hmmmm….

Toby and his Ex, Gio broke up almost a year ago. He’s been faking his happiness ever since. Going through the motions of living and hanging with friends (most are married!) and not feeling nearly as happy as he’s pretending to be. His love live has completely gone bye-bye.

Toby loved Gio. Really loved him. But Gio was “in the closet” and wouldn’t acknowledge him outside of the house. At all. To the point of telling Toby to keep distance between them so no one will know. This didn’t sit well with Toby because of the way his parents and brother treated him his entire life. They broke up with Gio’s last words being “I’m done.” Needless to say, Toby’s isn’t looking to give him his second chance. But he still loves him….should he? Will he?

Meanwhile, the sexy sheriff, Ethan seems to be popping up everywhere Toby is. Ethan is the man…..the one that gives him butterflies and makes his heart speed up. He’s also a pretty big smartass but Ethan reaches a point where he just flat out wants Toby. The kiss that seals this deal is HOT!!! But there’s still Gio and maybe even Roman? 

Roman is the hot bartender and they have been flirting for months. Finally Roman drags him upstairs and has his way with Toby. Will Roman want him forever or will he turn him out? What will this do to Toby?

I loved Toby’s character!!! He’s so real. So funny. So heartbreakingly lonely that you just can’t help but to love him. 

I highly recommend Unconditionally!!!! :)

“I’ll have a Martini…dry, please.” Gin was my alcohol of choice for the night. I wouldn’t get shitfaced to where I couldn’t drive home though, I knew my limits. But that didn’t mean that I wasn’t going to get a bit tipsy.
“Coming right up,” bartender number one spoke before he went about pouring my gin and vermouth into a silver shaker and giving it a liberal jerk of his wrist. Seeing the action had my cock stirring in my pants and images of him wrapping his hand around me moved to the forefront of my mind. I needed action and in a bad way.
He placed a Martini glass in front of me on a hot pink napkin and tipped the shaker up, straining and pouring my cocktail before adding an olive as an embellishment.
Giving me a sexy wink before he turned and made his departure towards the other end of the bar, I picked up my enticing drink and before taking a hefty sip, I said partially under my breath, “Happy birthday to me.”
Feeling the cool liquid slide so smoothly down my throat, I had to close my eyes at the exquisite taste of the perfect combination. It was utterly refreshing.
“So it’s your birthday, huh?” I didn’t even notice that someone had taken a seat beside me. This voice was oddly familiar and came out as a deep rumble.
Turning my head to the side I was surprised to see it was Deputy Ethan Bradley. I had never seen him around here before, let alone anyone really from Brown County. Although I remembered hearing something about him being gay, it was just weird seeing him on the opposite side of the spectrum.
He was sans uniform and in a pair of dark denim jeans, with cowboy boots peeking out from beneath his pant legs. I realized that I was taking entirely too much time perusing his ensemble. So I was already going this far, I might as well check out the rest of the package.
Continuing to skim my eyes over his extremely fine exterior, I took in that he was wearing a rather snug fitting polo shirt that was tucked into those amazing jeans, and it was topped off with a silver belt buckle. With the dimmed lights in the bar it was hard to tell exactly what his buckle said, but I imagined that if he was anything like me, it would be something naughty. 
I picked up the toothpick that held the green olive from my glass and leisurely placed it in between my slightly parted lips, sucking the remains of my martini from the meaty, bitter garnishment. Ethan couldn’t take his eyes off of my mouth, so I supposed I was being a bit seductive in my act to eat the olive. No harm in that, right?"
