We are delighted to exclusively reveal the cover for CJane Elliott's upcoming novel
The Player's Protégé
Hello, everyone! CJane Elliott here to thank My Fiction Nook for hosting the cover reveal for The Player’s Protégé, the second book in the Campus Connections Series from Dreamspinner Press. Jerry Helstrom, the main character in this book, was a key secondary character in The Kinsey Scale. I loved his snarky yet supportive personality so much I knew he needed to have his own story. Jerry is cynical on the surface, but underneath lurks a huge heart and a hidden yearning to be swept off his feet. Enter Arlo Barnes, just the person to be Jerry’s knight in shining armor. Arlo is one of the sweetest characters I’ve ever written. He’s so different from Jerry and yet they’re perfect for each other. I had fun getting these two together. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.
When his friends bet cynical Jerry that he can’t turn sweet Arlo into a player, Jerry might win the bet but lose his heart.
College senior Jerry Helstrom survived a gay childhood in Texas by being fierce and fabulous. At school he’s known as a player and has kept his heart so guarded that he’s forgotten he has one. When his friends bet him he can’t teach inexperienced Arlo Barnes to become a stud like him, Jerry takes on the challenge and quickly finds himself drawn to his enticing trainee.
Arlo kicks butt as a Tae Kwon Do black belt, but his sexual game is lacking. He’s been dumped by his only boyfriend and needs help getting himself out there. Enter Jerry Helstrom, player extraordinaire and happy to provide Arlo with some hands-on coaching. Jerry encourages Arlo to ask for what he wants in sex and in life, something Arlo struggles with. The struggle deepens when Arlo discovers that what he truly wants is the seemingly unattainable Jerry Helstrom.
Jerry can teach Arlo to play the field, but can Arlo teach Jerry to play for keeps?
