Oskar used to be Marco’s best friend. His everything. His sunshine yellow.

But that was before. Before Marco stopped being a hot jock. Before he learned to live with scars and pain. And before Oskar tore their friendship apart.

Afraid of falling in love.

Can Oskar find a way through Marco’s fear, back into his heart?

“True Colors” is an enemies/friends to lovers, boy next door, first time, slow burn M/M gay romance with a generous helping of UST. This no-cliffhanger, HEA book can be read as a standalone.


“In every way, the story was beautiful; at times it broke my heart, just to mend it back. It was so gorgeous because of Marco and Oskar, and their relationship which was complicated, steamy, sweet, and just so stunning.” – Howling for Books (5/5 stars)

“This is beautifully written and has a kind of poignancy about it as they both admit to what they feel about each other. The use of the color theme was unique and worked so well.” – Judith – Dirty Books Obsession (4.5/5 stars)

“Truly though, if YA is your thing, this will be a 5 star read for you. I honestly can’t wait to start tackling some of this author’s back stories. Gorgeous writing. Sunday can tell a story.” – Renee – Gaybook Reviews (4/5 stars)

“With a couple of especially steamy scenes, this was a sexier read than I’d come to expect from Anyta and, let me tell you, she did not disappoint when the clothes went flying off.” – Todd – My Fiction Nook (4.25/5 stars).

The UST is very nice and when things finally happen between Oskar and Marco – wow!” – Xtreme Delusions (5.0 rating)

“The storytelling was really well done and I was completely hooked. Marco had a vulnerability and quiet intensity about him that drew me in from the start – he just felt real to me.” – Rafa – Just Love: Queer Book Reviews (5/5 stars)
