Nationwide — The concept of summer love has captivated the human psyche for centuries. While passion, romance, and throwing caution to the wind are certainly appealing in romantic comedies and Hollywood films, the reality is often not so glamorous. In his new book, Jailed By Lust — Released By Love, Gerard C. Cole Sr. tells a touching tale of a whirlwind summer romance with a hard dose of reality.
Jailed By Lust — Released By Love follows the fictional story of Damien and Sheila as sparks fly amid their hormone-fueled love affair. As their steamy summer sizzles, Sheila begins to suspect that she may be expecting. Throwing a wrench into his plan of attending the University of his choice on a full scholarship, Damien is less than understanding and tensions begin to drive the two apart.
“Everyone makes poor choices, and we’re especially prone when we are young. But all we can do is own it and move forward with grace and inspired action to do better.”
Damien’s reaction triggers the traumatic memories of Sheila’s past when she was threatened and forced into doing things she did not want to do with her former boyfriend. Feeling heartbroken, alone, and scared, she turns to Travis, who becomes idyllic refuge amid the chaos.
“There are so many other ways to solve our issues that don’t involve violence. Let me be your example that no one wins with violence.”
