Cover Reveal: J. Leigh Bailey's Nobody's Hero

I've hosted a few cover reveals over the years, but THIS cover reveal is near and dear. The author is not only in my home Windy City RWA chapter, but she's the first person I befriended when I walked into the group and didn't know a soul. Now, we're in a critique group together, and we're roomies for RWA Nationals in NYC this summer.

So, let's just say I'm a little excited.

This is a New Adult book (meaning the age group beyond high school into early 20s) and features a romance between two guys. What I love about J's writing is how accessible she makes her stories. Admittedly, I'd never read a gay romance before we started trading pages, and the best recommendation I can say is she writes a good love story. Period. The characters happen to be two guys. Her characters are real, and funny, and I'm so glad she gets to share them with the world.

OK, details:

Nobody’s Hero (Letting Go Series, #1)
j. leigh bailey
Publication date: April 27, 2015 Carina Press
Genres: New Adult, Contemporary Male/Male Romance
Bradley Greene’s family all but discarded him when his brother caught him fooling around with another boy. Now Bradley has seventeen dollars and a gas card, and he’s sleeping in his car. He’s an emotional mess and if he doesn't land a job soon, he’s up the proverbial creek.
Danny Ortega can take care of himself…most of the time. When what started as a date turns into sexual assault in a dark parking lot, he’s grateful for Brad’s help—and an instant admirer of Brad’s military school-honed muscles. He certainly doesn't expect to see him again, and definitely not as the newest hire at Ortega Construction.

As Brad and Danny’s quiet attraction turns into more, things start to go sour before they've even started. Danny grows frustrated that Brad won’t open up emotionally. And Brad is terrified of being responsible for someone else’s feelings. When Brad’s family makes one last attempt to turn him into an “acceptable” son, all bets are off—he and Danny will need to decide if they’re in this together…or apart.
Now for the cover:

About the Author:
j. leigh bailey is an office drone by day and the author of New Adult and Young Adult LGBT Romance by night. She can usually be found with her nose in a book or pressed up against her computer monitor. A book-a-day reading habit sometimes gets in the way of... well, everything...but some habits aren't worth breaking. She's been reading romance novels since she was ten years old. The last twenty years or so have not changed her voracious appetite for stories of romance, relationships and achieving that vitally important Happy Ever After. She's a firm believer that everyone, no matter their gender, age, sexual orientation or paranormal affiliation deserves a happy ending.
