Jared Sanderson has spent his life wanting to be a hero. That’s why he became a cop. It was a life that kept him busy and organized without worries about romantic relationships. His work was too dangerous to expect anyone to bother with a long-term connection, until Quinn, an old high school friend, reappeared in his life.
Quinn Martin left the small town of Lincolnport as a high school senior and cut all of his social ties, including a casual friendship with Jared. After they meet again in Lincolnport’s annual Fun Run as two out gay men, both successful in their careers, the attraction which smoldered in high school is kindled into a flame. Unfortunately, Quinn has a secret that’s likely to sink any possibilities for a permanent relationship.
A Man for Jared is a 58,000-word gay friends to lovers romance with strong family relationship themes. Suicidal thoughts and deaths caused by drunk driving play a role in the plot. This is the second book in the Sanderson Brothers series following A Song for Noah. All of the books can be read as standalone stories, but they are best read as a continuing series about the Sanderson family including all four brothers as characters in each novel.
