Publisher's Summary

Devon is determined to create a new life for himself as a freshman at Indiana University. He struggles to put his troubled past behind him and keep it from poisoning his new relationships. After a promising start Devon's resolve weakens, but he refuses give up his dream.

The moment Devon meets Dorian Gray he knows his life will change forever. Dorian Gray is rich, charming, and the most beautiful young man Devon has ever beheld. Dorian takes an immediate interest in Devon and awakens feelings within him than have lain dormant since Devon's first love. Devon soon falls for Dorian, only to find Dorian has his own agenda.

Devon isn't thrilled with his roommate. Armando is obsessed with football and working out. Devon suspects Armando is gay, but worse still is the attraction Devon feels for him. Devon avoids Armando at first, but the more time he spends with his roommate the more he likes him. As Devon's new relationships begin to fall apart it is Armando who stands by Devon when he needs a friend the most.

Devon is a story of love, friendship, loyalty, and betrayal. It is the tale of a creation of a homophobic monster.

Backstory of Devon

Now, I really know of why Devon became so evil and hateful! All because of an asshole that Devon met at IU. It's a great story, but a sad one as well.
