I’m poking at my cover copy for High Contrast this week. Here’s a first try at it:
Jacob Shain is living the life of your average member of Generation Screwed in NYC. He has a boring internship, no cash flow, a tiny apartment that he has to share with his much-cooler tattoo-artist twin brother, and his romantic life is DOA. At least, until the day his brother’s shop hires on a new piercer, and Jacob’s boring life takes a turn for the weird.
Cody is gorgeous, funny and kind—he’s everything Jacob wants in a boyfriend. Except for the way he refuses to talk about his past, or where he lives, or anything about his personal life. And when Jacob’s brother is arrested, the bully at Jacob’s office steps up his harassment, Cody’s devastating secrets come to light and the mob gets involved, Jacob has to choose: stay the good boy forever, or dive headfirst into a world he barely understands.
Warning: Contains a good boy who wants to be bad, a bad boy who longs to be good, bodies that are canvases for living art and high-speed chases with police dogs.
It’s not quite there yet, and I can probably get another short paragraph in there, but it’s a start. What do all y’all think?
