Tender Strokes

Diana Vale

Series: Kirk Guys,
Book 2
Tropes: College, MM

Both could use a tender touch…

Zach has always felt like a wallflower. Too shy to make friends or talk to the boys he had crushes on.
He finds solace in music, playing drums to his heart’s content.

But one night changes all of that forever, leaving him with haunting memories and scarring trauma.

Deepak is cheerful, outgoing and happy-go-lucky, always the life of the party.
But after losing one of the most important people in his life, he feels strangely empty, struggling to express his vulnerability to the outside world.

Both men meet in their darkest hour.

Can each help the other to reclaim the light within?

A steamy interracial gay romance (white man/Asian man).
Contains cursing, alcohol, on-page sex, and mentions of sexual abuse (not between the two protagonists). Reader caution is advised.
No cliffhangers and a guaranteed HEA. 40,000 words.

This is book two of the Kirk Guys series, a series of new adult m/m romance stories and spin-off of the Kirk University series. Enjoy each book in order or as standalones.
