Joker, what a misnomer, but Jackson Webb’s friends were idiots. He’d joined Executioners almost three years earlier after the lead singer King caught him playing his guitar behind his garage. It broke up the monotony of his life, but once he got bored, he’d move on to another distraction. He wasn’t nice. He sure as hell wasn’t friendly. He was what he was, his friends handled his attitude and standoffish nature just fine. At thirty-eight he was pretty sure he was too stuck in his ways to change shit now.
Demetri “Dem” Urban was settling into a new life in the middle of nowhere. Okay, he was hiding from everyone in a kitchen as far removed from his five-star kitchen back in New York as he could get. Gideon invited him to stay with him and his wife for a while just until he could get everything back on track. He didn’t see it happening, but he had to admit the scenery wasn’t bad even if the man had the personality of a rabid, man-eating bear. Dem did like a challenge and that fit Joker Webb perfectly.

J.M. Dabney is a multi-genre author who writes mainly LGBT romance and fiction. She lives with a constant diverse cast of characters in her head. No matter their size, shape, race, etc. she lives for one purpose alone, and that’s to make sure she does them justice and give them the happily ever after they deserve. J.M. is dysfunction at its finest and she makes sure her characters are a beautiful kaleidoscope of crazy. There is nothing more she wants from telling her stories than to show that no matter the package the characters come in or the damage their pasts have done, that love is love. That normal is never normal and sometimes the so-called broken can still be amazing.

Just when I thought a JM Dabney book could not get any better, the author made a liar out of me and wrote another sure-fire winner with Joker, Executioners 2.
Jackson, aka Joker was a complex, introverted yet out-spoken character with a shy streak that endeared him to my heart.
Physically abused as a child, Joker became the defender of the weak and the champion of his “family”. Enter Demetri, lovely man with a purpose in life- get Joker’s attention and capture the man’s heart.
The persuasive banter between Dem and Joker was appealing and sensitive as each man found his way through the first stirrings of a budding relationship. Scarred and scared, Joker shied from intimacy, while Dem’s bold nature was a force to reckon with.
Ms. Dabney found common ground in her writing of the two men and their struggle to fit in to the world they created. Loving, captivating, and persuasive, the nuances from the character development left a smile on my face and my heart two times bigger. I wanted to wrap each man in my arms and keep them safe from the world. Thank you, Ms. Dabney, for doing just that.
