"Please, don't look at me."
Elijah Stevens once epitomized strength and valor. He spent 14 years of his life in the Marines, but an accident left him disfigured and ashamed. Returning to his hometown, he finds solace in the loving embrace of his grandmother. Frightened of being pitied, he struggles to find meaningful work, until his granny points out he has the voice of an angel.
Now Elijah is a successful audiobook narrator and voice actor. He's made peace with his life in the shadows, until one day while narrating a romance novel, he realizes he's never been lonelier in his life.
Lucas Crane hosts a popular radio show, and his soothing voice and sense of humor have earned him a devoted fan base. Lucas never lacks for male attention, but he's never met a man who held his interest beyond three dates. That changes when he meets an extremely shy voice actor, who insists on recording a commercial in the dark.
Intrigued by this mystery man, Lucas pursues him, but soon despairs of ever breaking through the sad man's walls. Until one day, the barriers to Elijah's heart begin to crumble.
Making It Fierce is a love story between a stubborn man afraid of his reflection in the mirror, and the bright, funny man who coaxes him out of the shadows. The authors love tropes, and here you'll find opposites attract, a military man, hurt/comfort, and more.
