WORTH THE RISK
C.J. Lynne
Series: Infinity Series, Book One
Genre: Gay/Lesbian, M/M Erotic Romance
Publication Date: November 7, 2016
Love doesn’t exist…
Or so Tyler Johnson thinks. He’s never had much, if any, of it thrown his way. A chance meeting with the enigmatic Jaxon Markham causes Ty to—if still not believe in love—at least know without a doubt that lust is alive and well. Ty’s not looking for forever, but what’s the harm in spending a few days—and scorching nights—with Jax; as long as Jax plays by his rules and keeps things casual and uncomplicated?
Jax knows his luck has finally changed for the better when he lays eyes on Tyler. The man is gorgeous, and stirs feelings in Jax he’d thought he’d never experience. The more time Jax spends with Ty, the more certain he is that Ty’s his soulmate. Now all that remains is convincing the stubborn Tyler of that fact, but Jax is more than up for the task, because he’s nothing if not persistent—a fact the elusive Tyler will soon find out.
Jax quickly, and much too easily, demolishes all of Ty’s protective walls and Ty reluctantly begins to think that maybe that intangible emotion called love is alive and well after all, and perhaps finally within his grasp. However, when his ugly past returns to haunt him, making him doubt all the good he’s experienced with and because of Jax, Ty’s positive outlook crumbles, giving way to doubt and despair.
Can he be the man Jax needs and deserves? Or will past and present demons destroy Ty’s one chance at true happiness?


Interview

By C. J. Lynne

1.     Please tell us something unique about you that we can’t learn from your bio. I’m a shameless ID addict!   I spend several hours (that’s putting it mildly) every day on the ID channel watching some of my favs like: Homicide Hunter, Your Worst Nightmare, Fear Thy Neighbor, Grave Secrets, Disappeared and Fatal Vows.

2.     What’s your favorite part of writing gay romance?  The freedom it gives me because two men can do and say anything to each other—the way a man and a woman can’t in contemporary romance.  When writing M/M, I don’t have any constraints on just how far each can go with the other.  M/M romances are fun to write, and I think the ensuing love story is a very emotional, sometimes over-the-top, yet always satisfying read.

3.     What’s your inspiration for The Infinity Series? How are the books connected?  I was in the middle of outlining a cop series when the idea for the Infinity Series popped into my head.  I tried to put it on the back burner, but couldn’t, so I set my cop series aside and began on Infinity.  The books following friends/family who either work at or are connected to the Infinity Nightclub, as they find love.  Many of my men aren’t even looking for a relationship, but when they meet that special man, they just can’t ignore him.

4.     Please tell us about Tyler Johnson? What makes him the man we meet in the story?  Ty had a rough childhood.  His parents neglected him and he always tried to gain the approval of his cold father, to no avail.  The two romantic relationships he’s had, have ended with him being hurt, and he’s learned the hard way that he can’t trust people.  Ty is self-reliant, driven and secretly craving the love he thinks he’ll never find.  He refuses to really open himself up to the possibility of finding Mr. Right—until he meets Jax.

5.     What about Jaxon Markham?   Jax is a well-rounded gay man who knows who he is and what he wants.  He comes from a very loving, supportive family—the very opposite of Ty.  He’s extremely successful, but wants to find the perfect man to share his life with.  When he meets Ty, he knows he’s found his soulmate, and Jax will stop at nothing to make Ty his.

6.     What’s the most touching scene in the book? Why?  Oh man, that’s a hard one, but I’d have to say when Jax first confesses his love to Ty.  I love this scene because Jax doesn’t just say “I love you”, instead he gives a doubtful Ty several poignant reasons why he loves him, and as a result of his sincerity, Ty allows himself to show vulnerability by opening up to Jax, telling him about a past failed relationship.  Jax in turn promises to never hurt him and tells Ty that he’s in love with him too, but he knows Ty isn’t ready to confess that yet, and that he’ll wait until he is.

7.     What other stories do you have in the works right now?  I’ve just finished up Infinity 2:  Finally Letting Go (Simon’s story) and am outlining Infinity 3: Breaking the Rules (Ben’s story).  I will be getting back to my cop story after that.
