My second and final contemporary gay romance of the Lover’s Journey series, Dusk to Dawn, has just been released. Read on to find out all about it and read an excerpt of this story!

Dusk to Dawn by Alina Popescu Synopsis

Since he was thirteen, Sebastian’s every precious moment was connected to his first crush, Edi. His protector through his toughest school years, Edi has always guided Sebastian’s choices. Love, lust, the realization he was gay, his passion for sports and karate, his studies and career of choice, everything in Seba’s life is somehow linked to Edi.

Sebastian’s love never faltered over the years, not as he challenged himself to catch up to Edi. Nor when Edi’s on and off boyfriend, Robert, showed up to wreak havoc in their lives.

Sebastian has shaped his life to revolve around Edi—his friend, roommate, and occasional lover. But is that the right path for him, or should he start a new journey, one that takes him away from Edi all the way to another country? And will running away solve anything in the end?

Excerpt

“So, do you think you’ll ever tell him?” Elena asked, her voice lower than her usual cheery, loud tone.

“Tell him what?” I knew what she was asking, but dodging was my best strategy.

“Don’t play dumb. I am asking if you plan on ever telling that hot guy you have the hots for him.”

“Nope.” I shrugged and returned my attention to Edi. She knew better. I could never tell him. If I were a girl, then maybe. I might have gotten rejected, maybe mocked. But I was a boy, which meant I’d be beaten to a pulp if I confessed my feelings to another guy.

I’d seen the news, I knew gay sex in private had been decriminalized recently. That meant very little. No one was gay out in the open. They knew they needed to keep it hidden.

“That is so sad,” Elena whispered, and I felt tears stinging my eyes. I wasn’t too heartbroken about not being able to tell Edi. He didn’t even know I existed. But the thought of always looking over my shoulder, always hiding who I was, who I loved, that made me want to run home, curl in a corner, and cry myself into oblivion. Why did this have to be who I was?

“He’s leaving, let’s go inside.”

For a moment, I considered saying no. I wanted to stay a little longer, collect my thoughts. It was too cold and the teacher would come for our next class. I followed Elena inside, barely making it to our desk before the teacher entered.

Dawn to Dusk, Lover’s Journey Book One

Edi’s life is made up of precious moments.

That first encounter with Robert in rural Romania at eleven. A summer spent together in the same setting a year later. Their first text exchange in high school. The first sexual experience. The first heartbreak—the second and third and fourth chance. The point of total breakdown and the despair of failing. More love than anyone could have warned him about.

No matter how much time passes, no matter how different their paths, every meeting brings Edi and Robert closer together. Those stolen moments shine brighter than any. Yet loving Robert is not easy, not when Edi wants to be true to himself and is met with dishonesty. Or when Robert keeps parading new conquests and ignores Edi more often than not.

Edi has always loved Robert, but he must decide if his journey leads to or away from his childhood friend. Is it true love or is Edi just unable to let go?
