~~~~~~
Hayden and Jace are best friends. Finally in their last year of High School, all that’s on their mind is winning the school their first ever football trophy. Well, that’s all that’s on Jace's mind. Hayden's mind is elsewhere. All he's thinking about is how he's going to tell Jace that he's gay.
When Hayden's dad plans an unexpected trip to Lake Michigan for the rest of the summer, Hayden and Jace are forced to share a room. Now, this wouldn't be so bad if Hayden wasn't in love with Jace, or if Jace wasn't discovering that he just might love Hayden back…
Clinging to the Closet Door showcases love between two guys. One that knows he's gay and has come to terms with it, and the other that still hasn't wrapped his head around it, and is "Clinging to the Closet Door"

There was going to be a sequel to this, but I've since left Booksie. THIS story is complete, but it ends at an awkward place because I thought I'd be writing a sequel. Sorry, but a sequel just isn't in the cards anymore. Maybe someday.
