Today is the official COVER REVEAL DAY for my JUNE 5th release IT COULD HAPPEN from Dreamspinner Press.
It Could Happen by Mia Kerick is the M/M/M romance of three eighteen-year-old high school seniors. It is a best friends-to-lovers story.
I enjoy writing stories of polyamory, and in particular, coming-of-age polyamory. The three young men in the book—Brody, Henry, and Danny—are faced with many conflicts as they mature from children to adults. Brody, the youngest of seven boys, feels neglected by his aging parents and has taken to seeking adrenaline rushes to make him feel alive. Henry has the opposite problem—his conservative parents are extremely controlling and he barely has a chance to move without them breathing down his neck. And Danny is basically living alone, as his mother spends all of her time with her various boyfriends, and so he seeks comfort from older lovers. The three already have high levels of conflict in their lives, and to complicate things, they are falling in love with each other.
The intimacy they share is unique and complicated and very necessary to each boy. The decision to pursue a romance saddles the three boys with the need to constantly balance what they could lose and/or gain in the process. They realize that this love they so desire will either save or destroy them. The possibility of a ménage relationship furthers their current conflicts, and provides a bond that is fascinating to explore.
It is unlikely for three boys to fall in love in high school. But, it could happen, and in my June 5th release—it does!!

Here’s the blurb:
Three misfits, mismatched in every way—Henry Perkins, Brody Decker, and Danny Denisco—have been friends throughout high school. Now in their senior year, the boys realize their relationship is changing, that they’re falling in love. But they face opposition at every turn—from outside and from within themselves. Moving to the next level will take all the courage, understanding, and commitment they can muster. But it could happen.
Henry is a star athlete and the son of religious parents who have little concern for the future he wants. Brody is a quirky dreamer and adrenaline junkie, and Danny is an emo artist and the target of bullies. Despite their differences they’ve always had each other’s backs, and with each of them facing a new and unique set of challenges, that support is more important than ever. Is it worth risking the friendship they all depend on for the physical and romantic relationship they all desire?
In this unconventional new adult romance, three gay teens brave societal backlash—as well as the chance that they might lose their treasured friendship—to embark on a committed polyamorous relationship.

Here’s an excerpt:
That was when Henry forgot all about keeping quiet, jerked at the door handle like a madman, and yelled, “Let us in! Let us in!”
It was like a miracle when the door slowly swung open. Danny stood in front of us wearing this strange, old-fashioned, white-nightgown thing he must have found at a thrift shop, because they sure don’t sell them at the outlet mall where I shop. If he were clutching a candleholder, he would have looked like an orphan in a Dickens’ novel.
Danny’s fine black hair was rumpled and stuck to his head, and, like Henry said, his eyes were both blackened and swollen. His bottom lip was puffy too.
“What the fuck?” Henry didn’t shout it. He just asked. Then he rushed to Danny and hugged him. I couldn’t see Danny at all because he was engulfed in Henry’s embrace, so I used the time to collect myself. I’m the one who’s supposed to keep my act together. I
swallowed over and over until the lump in my throat went away, and when Henry finally let Danny go, I closed the door and told them to sit down on the bed.
Danny was oddly obedient. He took Henry’s arm and led him to the bed. While they pushed back the rumpled sheet and blankets and sat down, I stood in front of them and asked, “What happened to you, Danny?”
He said, “Nothing,” flopped back on the bed, and pulled a pillow over his head.
So I asked again, “What happened to your face?”
The pillow muffled Danny’s voice, but it sounded like he said, “It’s not just my face.” Henry reached down and pulled the nightgown up to Danny’s knees. His legs were covered in cuts and bruises, as though he’d been kicked in the shins too many times to count.
“I’m gonna fuckin’ kill him.” I think Henry was the one to say this, but it could as easily have been me.
