Review Snippets
Terrific, very romantic, passionate, and sexy...The two main characters are both vividly drawn...The story was
well written, with a wonderful plot. There was a great flow to the developing interest between the two men
and the gradual revealing of secrets. The sex was intensely romantic and very hot! The ending was very
satisfying, romantic, and realistic. I really enjoyed this story and think you will too."

Men full of secrets are always an excellent draw to any book for me, and KC Kendrick’s men have
whoppers of secrets that have shaped their lives to the types of men they are at the exact moment that
they meet each other. -

"5 Hearts!...KC Kendricks gives us a well-crafted tale of two men brought together by a mutual lust and
some common interests...A story of hope, humor, and possibilities for the two men. This is one of those
tales that help people understand the world of gay men with some great eroticism thrown in."

Levi & Stacy

Levi and Stacy hold a special place in the book list.
Shining Victory is written from Stacy's point of view.
No One But You is from Levi's. It has long been the plan to write another
segment from Stacy's pov, but fear of mucking it up as thus far prevailed.
Do not abandon hope. It may yet happen.

EXCERPT (from Levi's point of view)


“Stacy, can you just let go of your notion that I’m missing out on life? I don’t feel like I am.”

“Okay. But here’s the thing, Levi. I want…”

“Just stop. I love you.”

To my utter shock, Stacy grabbed both my wrists, his powerful grip tight enough to bruise. His gaze
bored into mine, freezing me cold.

“You stop, Levi. You listen, just this once. You’re so afraid I’ll be pissed if I see you get a hard-on for
some other guy, you run from me when I want to talk about it. Do you think that in five years I’ve
never seen another man that gave me a little tingle? It happens to everyone, lover. It’s not
something to be ashamed of.”

My voice didn’t want to work. “I’m not you.”

“No, you’re not. I’ve never cheated on you, Levi.” He looked at me for the longest moments of my
life, his eyes gone black with some emotion I had no name for.

I knew.
I knew.

"I heard what the bartender said the other night. You need to know that if it ever happens, and you
trick some guy, you don’t need to keep it from me. I expect you to first, be safe, and second, to tell
me so we can be more careful.”

Ice water tossed in my face would not have chilled me more than his words.  "What the fuck is going
on here, Stacy? I've never cheated on you. Never. And I'm not starting now."

“Levi, we've been together a long time, and as a couple, we've enjoyed unprotected sex for quite a
while now. Do I need to be concerned?"

A fine trembling seized my body. This conversation was out of control, the potential for disaster
increasing by the second. My stomach clenched in on itself until I fought back the dry heaves. The
world spiraled around me, going black at the edges.  I broke free of his hands.

"I love you. I never cheat on you. And yet you sit there and ask me if it's possible I could have given
you the clap - or something worse? Maybe I should be the one worrying! And you have to do it here?
You motherfucker! I have to go in there and work!" I choked, unable to breathe. "I never…"

Stacy's arms came around me. I shoved him away, holding him at bay. The words came as I managed
a deep breath. Horrible words that I couldn’t stop from pouring out of me in my anger and pain that
he didn’t know me well enough to believe how much I loved him.

“Why don’t you go get a fucking blood test since you can’t trust me! Now you listen to me. You
decide whether or not you love me enough to have me hang around, because if I’ve gotten a little
old for you, you should tell me. I’ll step aside so you can go find yourself another sixteen year old!”

He drew back like I’d struck him, which I had. I’d lashed out, hitting him with the most damaging
words I owned. He’d been falsely accused of having sex with a sixteen-year-old boy when he was
twenty. The boy had lied – Stacy hadn’t touched him – but the accusation had almost ruined Stacy’s
life. The pain lingered, and I, who loved him so much, knew the wound lingered in him, unhealed at
its deepest point.  

And I used it against him.

I reached for him and this time he batted my hands away.

“I’m sorry, Stace. I’m so sorry. I didn’t mean that.”

“You said it, so you did mean it. Now get out of the car. I can’t be with you right now.”

My stomach roiled. “Stacy, please. We need to go back home and talk this out.”

He refused to look at me. The cold rage in his voice didn’t completely disguise the hurt.  

“No, we don’t. Going home won’t fix this, Levi. I need some time alone. Do us both a favor and find
someplace else to sleep...”
Lovers Stacy James and Levi Wright keep their relationship
hot and spicy by enjoying the little things in life. Levi
welcomes Stacy home from a business trip by delighting his
partner with a quick trick in the men’s room of a local pool
hall.  An offhand comment by a stranger cools Stacy’s ardor,
and sets in motion a chain reaction that rocks the very
foundation of Levi’s world. He’s never cheated on Stacy,
but Stacy has sudden doubts.  

On his own, Levi is tested in his discoveries – about Stacy,
their relationship, and about the kind of man he wants to
be. One thing he knows for certain. He’s not losing Stacy
over a careless whisper that isn’t true, but will the only man
he’ll ever love forgive his angry words?

Stacy made the worst mistake of his life telling his lover to
find another place to sleep. Levi might be younger, but he’s
a man, with a man’s pride. Stacy draws on all his experience
to walk a road full of detours and pitfalls to meet Levi
halfway, and bring him home.

Because for Stacy, there’s no one but Levi.
