They say first loves never last. Jackie Blue Kalinski was about to show them—whoever they are—that the word never is not in his vocabulary.
From the time Jack Kalinski was a preschooler he had a good sense of who he was and where he wanted to go in life. His childhood was spent drawing beautiful dresses for pretty people, male and female alike. Growing up with two dads who played hockey wasn’t exactly conducive to late night talks about tulle or tailor’s chalk, but he never let that stop his dreams of becoming a fashion designer or expressing the genderqueer heart that beat in his chest. His family’s love and support helped him through some painful losses that shaped him into the strong, vivacious, and charismatic college student he is today. Life hasn’t been a smooth ride, but Jack has persevered and is about to take the fashion world by storm.
Little does he suspect that his tidy life is about to be scorched by a chance meeting with one of the men playing hockey on the gay team his father coaches. Martin McKittrick not only catches Jack’s eye, but the much older man wins his heart. The passionate affair with the captain of the Marine Unit of the BFD burns red hot until the new couple run into a few snags that might dampen the inferno: Jack’s ascent into the fashion world, Martin’s job and the inherent dangers that come with it, and the fact that the well-kept secret romance has just been exposed to the world in a rather big way.
Victor Kalinsky and Dan Arou’s son, Jackie Blue, is all grown up and in college. Working through his fashion classes keeps him busy. He designs his clothes to his own genderqueer specifications. Fabulous and proud of his life. Then he see a man playing hockey that sets his heart on fire along with his libido.
Martin is a big man, about the same age as Jack’s fathers. At first he fights the force of nature named Jack. But it’s impossible. Jack want him and that exactly what he means to have. Neither fathers, fires or anything else can separate them.
I’m glad we got Jackie Blue’s story. From the beginning he danced to his own drum and that never changed. All the characters stayed true to themselves throughout the series and Jack may be the strongest characters this author has written. I’m glad their story ended on such a sweet note.

V.L. Locey loves worn jeans, yoga, belly laughs, walking, reading and writing lusty tales, Greek mythology, Torchwood and Dr. Who, the New York Rangers, comic books, and coffee.
