Psychologist Chad Simpson is a caregiver to everyone but himself. Chad has lived so deep in the closet, it takes the fear of losing his best friend and secret love Jared Knight to drag Chad into accepting his own sexuality.

True Colors is part of Mixed Tape Series Volume 4. The plot illustrates two compassionate men who are secretly in love with each other.  Chad is a thirty year old coward, he spends every waking moment stressing over pleasing everyone, clients, co-workers, parents as well as society in general. Just the thought of someone discovering he is gay sends Chad into an anxiety attack. Openly gay, Jared has waited years for Chad to vacate his self-imposed prison. Jared is more than ready to move from friendship to lovers if he can find a way to break down the wall surrounding Chad. 

Jambrea Jo Jones has created an exceptionally enjoyable short story with fascinating characters. Chad is wonderfully exasperating and Jared is a long-suffering kindhearted true friend.
