Warrior Of Hearts

Genre: M/M Romance – Contemporary

Synopsis: At the age of twenty-one, Alex Winters has already repaid his student loans, gotten his own apartment, and become officially recognized as a rising artist to watch out for in the character design field. Everything is perfect, except it’s not, because Alex is miserable.

To distract himself, Alex signs up to become a moderator for his favorite video game. He figures it shouldn’t be too hard. He just has to answer a few questions, and that’ll be that. But life loves proving Alex wrong. Because the first message he receives is: [she’s not breathing, and I don’t know what to do, because when my mate’s parents get home they’re just gonna find this girl on the floor and I know we don’t know each other but you’re the only one I can count on right now so please help me.]

Now, Alex is stuck chatting with David—an equally depressed medical student, who’s coincidentally also the king of unhealthy coping mechanisms. When Alex realizes David also hates himself to a point of no return, what started off as an online joke slowly blooms into a genuine friendship between the two. So, it’s all nice and wholesome. Mostly. Until Alex falls in love. Then, it gets complicated.
