Quinn Martin left the small town of Lincolnport as a high school senior and cut all of his social ties, including a casual friendship with Jared. A lingering sense of guilt about a disaster in the past kept Quinn away from the idea of committed dating relationships while his professional inn-keeping career prospered.
Meeting again as two out gay adults in the best physical condition of their lives causes the old smoldering attraction between Jared and Quinn to kindle into a flame. Unfortunately, Quinn's secret and Jared's doubts conspire in an attempt to sink the new relationship.
A Man for Jared is a 58,000-word gay friends to lovers romance with strong family relationship themes. Suicidal thoughts and deaths caused by drunk driving play a role in the plot. This is the second book in the Sanderson Brothers series following A Song for Noah. All of the books can be read as standalone stories, but they are best read as a continuing series about the Sanderson family including all four brothers as characters in each novel.
