TITLE – Jealousy
AUTHOR – Jenna Galicki
RELEASE DATE – July 3, 2013
GENRE – Contemporary Romance


When Heather Cooper married Peter, she thought that she had finally found someone who could handle the inseparable bond she shares with her gay best friend, Justin Perrotta. It’s only a matter of time, however, before jealousy rears its ugly head and Peter’s true feelings emerge. He starts drinking and his erratic behavior threatens their marriage.

Burned by an ex-boyfriend, Justin refuses to open his heart to love again. Wild relationships and one night stands leave him lonely and unfulfilled, even though he will not admit it. He finds love when he least expects it, but his fear of commitment threatens to ruin the best thing that has ever happened to him.

In this modern day ‘Will and Grace’ meets ‘Sex and the City’, two best friends, a straight woman and a gay man, struggle to find someone to love as much as they love each other.

Excerpt- She felt liberated. Empowered. Free from the sexual restraints her marriage forced upon her. With each thrust of her hips, with each wave of pleasure that reverberated through her body, she let go of the hostility, the bitterness, the hatred, the guilt, the self-loathing and the self-pity, every self-destrucive emotion that dimmed her spirit. A Pandora’s Box of evils left her body. There was no need for goodbyes. She saluted their departure. They were unwelcome. It was a baptism, and now her soul was cleansed.

A series of one-night stands was exactly what Heather needed in order to rebuild her selfesteem. She forgot how much she enjoyed the dating scene and delved in without inhibition – not that she had much inhibition in the first place. She was always a bit on the wild side when it came to sex, but now that she was older she didn’t feel the same constraints, the same double standards that society put on women who enjoyed casual sex.



I am a newly published author of adult contemporary romance, geared toward male/male romance.

My debut novel, Jealousy, is a modern day 'Will & Grace' meets 'Sex & the City' - only hotter. A reviewer recently gave me a a tremendous compliment by comparing it to 'Jane Austen' meets '50 Shades".

In Jealousy, I am blending genres, in that it has both m/f and m/m romance. I am introducing the reader to m/m romance, in a way that is tender, touching and loving. I want to make m/m romance novels mainstream in the literary industry. I want to take it from the back shelf and put it on the front shelf. I want to walk into a major retail book store and see boy meets boy, right along side boy meets girl.
