Noah has suppressed his urges for other men for years, but when a sexy bartender comes crashing into his life, all bets are off.

Due to his career as a lawyer and his father’s strict ways, Noah has always ignored the side of him that craves the touch of another man, not wanting to upset the calm waters of his life. But when he’s out one night celebrating his friend’s first win in a courtroom, Noah is taken aback by the raw lust that consumes him when he meets Shea. He wants to ignore what he feels for the man, but when Shea introduces a tantalizing side of sex that Noah has been dreaming of, he finds it impossible to keep Shea out of his life.

Shea’s been heartbroken before by a man who wouldn’t come out of the closet for him, and he doesn’t think he can go through that again. Can Noah let go of his fears of coming out to the world? Will the pleasures Shea gives him in the bedroom have Noah seeing what really matters in the long run?

Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of light BDSM.


By My Side by author Jennifer Wright is a very emotion filled read. I love reads like that. Ones I can sink into and really feel like I am inside the story.
Noah comes from money. Lots is expected of him. So much pressure on him that he feels he cannot live his own life. He is living for his parents. He cannot even come out as gay, for fear of his family.
Shea is a bartender. Blue collar, but he has the one thing that Noah wants desperately. Well besides his body. He has confidence in who he is, and is able to be that person without fear.
Noah turns to friendship with Shea. But the chemistry is off the charts and he cannot help it going further. I like that Noah is sweet, loyal, and a really good person at heart.
Shea is dominate in bed which allows Noah to explore a side of himself he didn't know he had. Really they are beautiful friends and lovers. They grow a lot in this book over time.
What I was not crazy about was the ending. But I suppose when you love a story you never want it to truly end. When you want a memorable emotional read about learning to be yourself, this is the one to pick up.
