A chance encounter at a lake and instant chemistry send author Rob Harrison and editor Matt Ramirez into each other's arms and lives. After handing over a copy of his novel, Rob is surprised when Matt not only loves it, but thinks it will sell and sell big! They take a chance and jump into the future together.

Several wildly successful books lead to the big screen, and enter Ian Ariola, the man with the movie know-how, and Alan McAlister, an actor with a past. As work begins, the four men bond and their lives become more intertwined, with Matt as the glue that holds them all together.

But it becomes painfully clear that success and money can't solve all problems. Dangerous attraction, predatory businessmen, and hereditary disease all threaten to destroy their happiness, and in the end, one of them becomes the key to what's most important for the other three: love, success, and life itself.

Michael Lewis’s brilliant narrative of the Trump administration’s botched presidential transition takes us into . It's not a sociology book. It's a storybook about modern society, ancient virtues, and the power of love, money and talent to do a little good. Jay Hancock, Baltimore Sun.

Michael Lewis’s brilliant narrative of the Trump administration’s botched presidential transition takes us into the engine rooms of a government under attack by its leaders through willful ignorance and greed.

The simple idea of not even recognizing ourselves truly haunts us to the core. We give up parts of ourselves for others, we lose control, and sedate ourselves to ignore the fact we're worthless, selfless people. Yet it could happen in an instant  . And that my friends, is how I came to be. Or who I always was.

Talk about Selfless

Before Rob Harrison met Matt Ramirez, the thirtysomething romance gay novel author had just about given up on finding the love of his own life. The younger Matt turned out to be exactly what he was looking for, someone who was sweet and honest, as well as conscientious and smart. They both knew they were made for each other, so much so that they also decided they would tempt fate and go into business together, self-publishing and promoting Rob's books. The arrangement turned out to be incredibly successful, beyond their wildest dreams, as did their relationship, which only got better as they became rich and famous. As their business expanded, they brought in two others from Rob's past, Ian (who would produce the movie they planned to make of Rob's first book), and Alan (an actor who would appear in the movie, but on whom they were taking some risks due to his earlier role in a gay porn film.) In time, their household expands to take in Matt's mother, as well as two others.

"Selfless" is an incredibly emotional romance novel, generally well-written and enjoyable, with a positive message that "Anything is possible," despite less-than-perfect beginnings and seemingly insurmountable problems you may encounter along the way. My one critique is that the story goes too over-the-top, veering into the semi-cheesy world of "Lifetime Original Movies for Women and Gay Men," complete with a "disease of the week" (and a promising cure), backstabbing friends, an amazing technical breakthrough (which they decide to keep for themselves, giving up the chance for many millions), an attempted murder, and ... I am not making this up ... Oprah in a recurring role! It's still a refreshing read, which I recommend, with four copy-protected stars out of five.

Yet another lover has turned out to be a complete jerk so Rob Harrison is thinking about giving up on finding someone to love and cherish. Rob figures he needs to just enjoy the company of his dog and stop wishing for that someone special.

Life hasn't been easy for Matt Ramirez, his father abandoned the family when his mother was diagnosed with Huntingdon's disease but at least he's got a successful career. Of course Matt's love life is pretty grim which doesn't help.

Rob has pretty much given up on love when Matt jogs by and introduces himself. So begins a wonderful adventure both personally and professionally for the two men. Fate however, has a way of balancing give and take, even in relationships. The day may come when one is faced with the most brutal decision of a lifetime and the other will deal with the consequences.

Selfless is a thought provoking, riveting tale of love and the price sometimes asked for the bounty of that selfless love. I would categorize Selfless as a `sweet' story because the sexual activity stays behind closed doors throughout this book. Things fall into place somewhat easily for them and their kindness is almost too good to be true at times which stretches credibility. But, the emotional ending packs a wallop. I may have wanted a tougher story but I was invested in the characters and I was crying when I finished reading. Selfless is an enjoyable story with an ending that hits every emotional button.

I own and read this book in ebook format; I strongly recommend it for those who are looking for a novel full of romance, well-drawn characters to whom you cannot help but be powerfully drawn, and good role models for young gay adults. Frankly, you will fall in love with both Rob and Matt and wish for a love affair like theirs. Ian is his own delight and a good friend. Alan has a rather shady incident in his past, that the others who need to know do know about, but you will come to like him a great deal. But Matt -- he's simply incredible. The flyer about the book calls him the glue that held the four guys's relationships together, permanently, and he was. In ways that you will not guess. If you read this book, you will enjoy some sexy scenes, some deeply romantic scenes, several lovely romantic relationships, and ultimately an act of selflessness that will take your breath away and leave you crying. I'm happy to give it five stars and have to admit that I did not find any flaws worthy of mentioning in this review. Buy it and read it.

Incredible story! Very good tender moments, lots of humorous moments and at least 1 tear-jerker moment. It is not your typical gay romance novel in that the sex is not shown. There are lots of loving touches and kisses and if you don't like to read graphic sex, you are in luck with this book. All 4 main characters are different have little quirks, but they are likeable in their own ways.
