J.A. Rock is the author of queer romance and suspense novels, including By His Rules, Take The Long Way Home, and, with Lisa Henry, The Good Boy And When All The World Sleeps. She holds an MFA in creative writing from the University of Alabama and a BA in theater from Case Western Reserve University. J.A. also writes queer fiction and essays under the name Jill Smith. Raised in Ohio and West Virginia, she now lives in Chicago with her dog, Professor Anne Studebaker.
Introverted college student Lane Moredock is in a bad place. His mother has been arrested for securities fraud, his father is on the run, and everyone, including the SEC, suspects Lane knows where the missing millions are. Lane, with no money and nowhere to live, makes a desperate deal that lands him in trouble and leaves him unwilling to trust a so-called Dom again.
Photographer Derek Fields lost money to the Moredocks, and is as sure as anyone that Lane is guilty despite his claims. A chance meeting with Lane shows him there might be something more to the young man than arrogance and privilege, and Derek wonders if Lane might be just what he’s been looking for: a sub with the potential to be a life partner.
As Lane slowly begins to open up to Derek and explore his needs as a submissive, the investigation closes tighter around him. Lane might be everything that Derek wants, but first Derek needs to trust that Lane is innocent—and Lane needs to trust Derek with the truth.
Hi! I’m J.A. Rock, and welcome to the Rockin’ Read Aloud Tour—where once a week, a super awesome romance blog hosts a video of me reading aloud from my backlist. Thanks so much to Crystal’s Many Reviewers for hosting me on the final stop of the tour, where I’m reading from The Good Boy.
I just want to say thank you to those of you who have taken the time to check out the videos on this tour! This has been really fun, and I’ve loved hearing your thoughts. I’m wrapping things up with a Lane/Derek/Mr. Zimmerman scene from TGB. If you already know the story and don’t need the introduction, you can skip to 2:40 in the video.
I’ll be giving away a copy of the book, so comment on this post if you’d like a chance to win! If you want to view all the videos from the tour, you can click the links below, or head to my website, where they’re all archived. Thanks again!
