For the first time in her life she finally experiences true pleasure. Jackie wants more and Brixton is happy to deliver. What begins as wild sex turns into a torrid love affair. But they live in completely different worlds, and their age difference complicates matters. How far will Brixton’s disapproving manager go to keep them apart? Will Jackie’s interloping “was-band” ruin everything? Is Brixton willing to alienate his young and adoring fans for the sake of love, or will Jackie remain his Pop Secret?

Interview For Reviewers

A gay man and a straight woman romance writing team. How did that come about?
Markus had the idea for the book but knew he would need a female’s perspective into the mind of the protagonist, Jackie Notter. He was also looking for help creating realistic straight sex scenes.

That opening chapter…
It’s very in-your-face on purpose. “Peeking Ahead” is basically a litmus test to see if the reader can handle the realistic sexual content.

The formula for romance books has become rich older man saves a naive young woman. It was nice to see the concept flipped.
Sometimes you have to break the rules to have fun. Plus the authors wanted their protagonist to be a strong woman.
