Or at least, he doesn't want to admit it. Because there is no way Jonas Ashcroft is gay. He's a straight, carefree frat boy player, just like any good son of a conservative state senator. If only his struggle to convince everyone—especially himself—didn't leave him so miserable. No matter how many girls or bottles he drowns himself in, Jonas can neither escape nor accept who he is.

Enter Tate. He's smart, confident, and instantly sees right through Jonas's surly exterior. Sure, he's done things in life he's not proud of, but he knows who he is and what he wants. And what he wants is Jonas. As their easy friendship intensifies into something more, Tate introduces Jonas to a life he's never known. One filled with acceptance and sex and a love that terrifies and excites them both.

But some inner demons refuse to be shaken off so easily. When Jonas's old life barges in, he faces a shattering choice, one that could destroy everything he and Tate have fought so hard for. Sometimes love just isn't enough—and sometimes it's exactly what you need.


Come What May by A.M. Arthur is a really sweet story about Jonas really finding himself and who he wants to be. He has been kicked out of college for a prank that went terribly wrong. He has many pressures on him. His father is a rich senator and always finds fault with his only son. Nothing is good enough for him. He has come to live with his Aunt and Uncle to basically find out what he really wants out of life.
Little did he know the boarder at his Aunt's house would be the answer.
Tate has a lot on his plate. He has two younger sisters he takes care of. One was brutally traumatized. He runs a GLBTQ safe house for homeless teens. He is a good person. Openly gay. When he finds Jonas irresistible it might be the biggest chance he has ever taken...finding love for himself.
Jonas really grows as a character from the scared little rich kid we first meet to the sure man who ends this part of his story. I really liked watching his confidence and life grow and blossom. This is a sweet intense read I personally loved.
